FTR Continued To Play Mind Games With Hangman Page
Tony Schiavone welcomed Kenny Omega to the ring for an interview. Omega came down to the ring honoring Hana Kimura. Tony brought up Hangman Page costing the Young Bucks last week and Page getting thrown out of The Elite.
Omega said Hangman Page will have to live with that for the rest of his life and FTR fooled him. Kenny added that they will defeat FTR at All Out and retain the AEW Tag Team Championships.
FTR and Tully Blanchard came to the ring with a cooler. Dax told Kenny that they do not have a problem with him and are looking forward to having a great tag team contest at the PPV. Cash Wheeler gave Kenny a pint of chocolate milk and Omega called them d*ckheads. Omega challenged them to a fight and said that Tully should stay away because he can smell his depends from here.
Hangman Pagemade his way down the entrance ramp and got in the ring. Harwood said it wasn’t them that got in Hangman’s head and he betrayed the Young Bucks on his own. Dax added that Page is nothing more than an insecure little boy. Omega calmed Hangman down as FTR picked up the tag team titles. FTR dropped them at Hangman’s feet and Page went to hand Kenny back the his title but he had already left the ring.
Opinion: The censor was late bleeping out profanity three times during this promo and it was annoying as hell because you couldn’t hear some of the lines of the promo. However, this was still a good promo and this match could easily steal the show at All Out.
