While it has recently been reported that 'Hangman' Adam Page will definitely not be challenging Kenny Omega for the AEW World Championship at next month's All Out PPV, it now looks as if Page is completely out of that 5 September show entirely.
Speaking on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer claims that Hangman won't be competing at all at All Out.
Meltzer told co-host Bryan Alvarez how Page won't be wrestling in any match at All Out, although there was no reason given as to why AEW will be keeping one of its hottest stars - arguably the hottest star right now - off such a major show.
One has to think that Hangman maybe has some sort of injury or niggle, but that's purely speculation on your writer's part here due to how it seems impossible to think there's not a spot for the one-time AEW Tag Team Champion somewhere on the All Out card - even if that isn't battling Omega for AEW's biggest prize.
In terms of who might face the Best Bout Machine for the AEW World Championship at All Out, Meltzer believes it will be Christian Cage who steps up to challenge Omega.
