Adam Page vs. PAC is no longer happening at the upcoming AEW Double or Nothing.
There was an angle done at Saturday’s WrestleGate show in Nottingham, England involving Pac and Hangman Page. Dave Meltzer reports that this angle was to present the match that had been built up because the match won’t be taking place at Double or Nothing. The word from AEW is it’s been nixed due to creative differences. PAC won’t be working Double or Nothing.
With PAC being a Dragon Gate champion and taking that role seriously, he has not agreed to any losses since winning the Open the Dream Gate Title.
In order to protect that belief, he has worked draws with Zack Sabre Jr. and Will Ospreay. That is an issue with AEW who wants to present a sports-like atmosphere and had their own direction for what they wanted.
Now, the Pac vs. Page match will be released this week on the internet. Page agreed to fly to England and do the match to make up for the hyped match. Thus, the reason he appeared at WrestleGate.
Meltzer wrote, “The DQ finish kept things open-ended enough that Pac may be back with the promotion at some point to face Page, although there is no definitive time frame.”
AEW will be at least one more announcement made this coming week. Page will be wrestling against a new opponent.
Double or Nothing, which is the inaugural show promoted by AEW, will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 25, 2019.
