AEW Full Gear Results: In-Depth Match Analysis
AEW World Championship: Kenny Omega (c) vs. Hangman Page
There wasn’t anything about this match that mattered other than the finish. AEW built a story since its inception that surrounded Hangman Page. The very first press conference saw him say that he wanted to be the first-ever AEW World Champion. What spawned from there was a bumpy road with some great moments but worse than anything. Losing the match to Chris Jericho that should have seen him achieve his dream. Page lost his friends along the way as he took himself out of The Elite. Watching Kenny Omega, his former tag team partner, defeat him at Full Gear one year ago to ultimately win the AEW World Championship. It was a road worth taking, however, as it all led to the biggest match in the history of AEW.
Page rode his horse down the road of shortcomings. He relived what went wrong and what made him the man he is today. All to stand face to face with Omega once again at the same show they opposed each other last time. What would follow is a match of a “Never Say Die” cowboy having to jump through the hoops of desperation that a soon-to-be defeated champion put in his way. Don Callis did everything in his power to try and help keep the title on Omega. Page, with no one backing him up, fought it all off.
Omega wasn’t slipping up. He was simply getting outdone by a determined and destined challenger. The Young Bucks being the final save for Omega felt special, and it was only that much more special when Matt Jackson gave the nod of approval to Page as he hit the Buck Shot lariat to win the match.
It was one of those matches where you got lost in what was happening. The moves didn’t matter but the moments did. They took over in a sense. When Page got the nod from his former friend to finish the job, it felt as though it was finally that time for “The Cowboy” to reach his goal. AEW has a young history but this was the particular moment that will be remembered forever. A perfect conclusion to one of the best stories in pro wrestling history.
