Adam Page found his success with fans organically thanks to his relatable character work and excellent in-ring skills. He is also part of one of the most compelling storylines in AEW thanks to his storyline with Kenny Omega. It seems a pro wrestling veteran isn’t a fan of Adam Page as a champion.
In a culmination of a multi-year-long storyline, Adam Page finally defeated Kenny Omega to win the AEW World Championship – a promise he had made years prior. His organic growth has certainly helped him become a lovable babyface as well.
Since then he has competed in two highly lauded matches against Bryan Danielson, where he even went on to retain his title against Danielson in their most recent bout.
While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette talked about Adam Page’s run as the AEW World Champion. He blasted page for not having the attitude of a World Champion.
“He could not have looked in a mirror at the way he was dressed and say ‘I need to go out on national television looking like this as the World Heavyweight Wrestling Champion.’ They either just do not know or simply do not care at all. And because no one is in charge in AEW, there is nobody to tell them. Therein lies the problem.
What was the old saying? ‘You don’t dress for the job you’ve got, you dress for the job you want.’ It’s not only the dress but it is the attitude, it is the way you carry yourself. Adam Page is not a world champion. Somebody needs to help teach him how to be one if he is going to be put in that position, and apparently nobody is! If they are? It’s falling on deaf ears.”
Fans are certainly enjoying Adam Page’s current run as the AEW World Champion and that is what matters in the end. Lance Archer returned on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite and attacked Adam Page, making it clear what his intentions are. We will have to wait and see how the feud will be booked in the coming weeks.
