Shawn Spears will be cheering for Hangman Page at All Out later this summer when he faces Chris Jericho for the AEW World Championship. Spears took part in an interview recently with Bill Apter where he said Page has a chance to become a worldwide star with a victory over a high-profile opponent like Jericho.
“Nobody loves Chris Jericho more than Chris Jericho,” Spears said when asked who will win between Jericho and Page. “He’s going to be gunning for it more than anyone else because he still feels he has something to prove even though the guy’s resume speaks for itself.”
Spears then said he’ll be cheering for Page, however.
“I’m pulling for Hangman,” he continued. I think Hangman has a chance to make himself a worldwide global star in one match and that’s the match to do it in.”
Shawn Spears To AEW?
Spears competed in the Casino Battle Royale before Double or Nothing last month but has not signed with AEW. He also spoke to the possibility of him becoming a full-time member of the AEW roster during the interview.
“It’s pretty common knowledge that I’m good friends with an Executive Vice President,” said Spears. “I’d heard the rumblings like everybody else across the planet had heard about the beginning of something special. So when the opportunity presented itself to be a part of it, it just so happened to fall in line with my timeline, the whole 90 days – that worked out perfectly in terms of timing.”
“Once one thing ended another door opened and I dove through that door without hesitation and it turned out to be the best decision I’ve made in recent memory.”
