Adam Page is AEW’s Anxious Millennial Cowboy, but he recently got fans worried after seemingly getting injured. While he didn’t actually get injured, it appears there’s some uncertainty regarding his status at AEW Revolution.

As seen on this week’s AEW Dynamite main event, AEW World Champion Samoa Joe, Swerve Strickland, and Brian Cage faced FTW Champion HOOK, “Hangman” Adam Page, and RVD. During spot with Samoa Joe, fans noticed Adam Page rolling his ankle. Post-show footage depicted Page struggling to walk backstage.

Dave Meltzer initially reported that Page suffered an ankle injury, but subsequent reports quickly debunked this, revealing that Adam Page was simply playing up to the audience.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez reported that Adam Page is not injured but worked an ankle injury angle on AEW Dynamite. The reason behind this was suggested to be a potential personal issue affecting his availability for an upcoming pay-per-view.


If Page can’t participate in the pay-per-view, the reported ankle injury would serve as a cover story. The decision to work the angle was apparently known to very few, possibly excluding even those involved in the match.

”Hangman is not hurt. He worked an ankle injury. And the reason that he worked the ankle injury is because he has something going on in his personal life and he may not be able to work the pay-per-view. If he can’t work the pay-per-view then this is the cover story as to why he can’t work the pay-per-view, he injured his ankle. Virtually nobody knew about it and I don’t know if even the people in the match knew that he was going to do this.”

Alvarez further reported that as of this morning, people very close to Hangman didn’t know the full details of the situation. It’s presumed that he and Tony Khan had discussed it, but it’s not confirmed.

Hangman is okay, but his participation in the upcoming pay-per-view is uncertain. The nature of the personal issues remains undisclosed, and it’s unclear when more information will be available, possibly even until the last minute before the event.

”There were people very close to Hangman who even this morning didn’t know what was going on. I presume that him and Tony talked about it but I can’t tell you that for sure. The point of the story is, he is okay. He may work the pay-per-view, he may not work the pay-per-view and I don’t know if we’re going to know whether he’s going to work the pay-per-view or not until maybe the last minute. I don’t know what the personal issues are but they are there and that’s what’s going on.”

We will have to wait and see how AEW will handle the situation, should Adam Page end up not competing at the Revolution pay-per-view in March.
