They were tag team partners, but at AEW Full Gear, Kenny Omega and Adam Page battled it out. 

The two stars wrestled a singles match as part of the finals of the AEW World Title Eliminator to determine the new #1 contender to the AEW World Heavyweight Title. Impact Wrestling EVP Don Callis was on commentary as he is a long time friend of Omega. 

The match saw them open the show. Both stars had their moments including Omega reversing an irish whip and hitting a moonsault off the barricade. Omega went for a powerbomb on the ramp, but Page got out of it and hit one of his own. The finish saw Omega connect with the one winged angel for the win.
