Adam Page vs. PAC presented a different style of a match to entertain fans.
At the AEW Full Gear pay-per-view event, Page went over PAC in a singles match. This marked the first loss for PAC under the AEW banner.
This match was originally slated for the AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 25, 2019. However, plans changed.
There was an angle done at a WrestleGate show in Nottingham, England involving PAC and Page earlier this year to present the match that had been built up because the match didn’t take place at Double or Nothing.
Page agreed to fly to England and do the match to make up for the hyped match. It was released on YouTube. At the time, it was reported that it was nixed due to creative differences and PAC was pulled from the card.
At Double or Nothing, Page drew the Joker card in the Casino Battle Royale allowing him to enter at lucky number 21 where he would win the contest and become a competitor to wrestle for the chance to become the first-ever AEW World Heavyweight Champion. He lost to Chris Jericho at All Out.
