AEW has a lot of angles going right now, but The Devil has been going for a while. It seems that we are no closer to figuring out who is behind that mask, and at this rate, fans are starting to wonder when the big reveal will happen.
The Devil is after MJF, and that is interesting, because he used to call himself The Devil. He has also been seen in that very mask, claiming that it was stolen from him.
Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall Hangman Page will be off television for some time telling The Devil’s attack. Also, this beatdown seemed to be storyline baxed at this time. There is also a big hint about who is under that mask due to the car windshield spot.
The December 13 episode of All Elite Wrestling Dynamite, the masked devils attacked Adam “Hangman” Page.
The beatdown seemed in line with how the storyline had progressed thus far. At the end of the attack, Hangman Page was put through a car window, which led to natural inquisition as to the identity of the devil. Specifically, there were many who assumed it was a hint at it being the former Jack Perry.
Perry had a verbal altercation with CM Punk over his insistence to use real glass during an angle with Hook this past summer. Perry referencing the verbal altercation at AEW All In led to a physical altercation with CM Punk.
Fightful received a message from one high level source immediately after the segment specifying that they don’t believe Jack Perry is involved in the angle. We have been told that technically Perry’s suspension has long been up, but he’s not back at the shows. It’s always possible that creative plans could change to adjust who is planned for the group.
It was also noted that, “We’re told that Hangman Page will be off television for a brief period selling the attack.“
The Devil is certainly an interesting angle in AEW. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, especially since The Devil currently has a band of masks goons who are willing to do his bidding.
