Adam ‘Hangman’ Page is one of the stars who built his brand working for various indie companies before joining the upstart promotion All Elite Wrestling.
However, during a recent appearance on State of Combat podcast, the former NJPW star claimed that WWE was also an option for him at one point and revealed why he didn’t join the promotion.
Page first revealed that he had negotiations with WWE and it was an option he heavily considered. According to him, everyone at the company was very pleasant with the talks and negotiations.
Continuing on the topic, Hangman also claimed that the company put a lot of effort in trying to hire him and they were after him more than most of the other promotions.
Though he decided not to join the company because it didn’t feel right at the time and while everyone wanted to grow up and become a WWE Star one day, it wasn’t a goal for him anymore.
Apart from this, Hangman Page also talked about choosing AEW as his new home and said that knowing that he can be fulfilled creatively and that he can contribute to bettering wrestling is more rewarding than anything else could have been.
Adam Page is currently scheduled to face former WWE Star Neville aka Pac at the upcoming Double Or Nothing event from MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 25th.
