AEW Dynamite Results: Hangman Page vs. Frankie Kazarian
Hangman Page is truly alone in AEW for the first time, as he’s been kicked out of The Elite & lost the AEW Tag Team Championships. He started out in AEW as a promising singles star, being in the first ever AEW Championship match against Chris Jericho. Now, in his first singles since July, he will face the veteran Frankie Kazarian in a match which will surely see if he’s truly ready to ride alone.
Kenny Omega would be on commentary for this one, giving some extra drama for Page to contend with. This could have been Page & Omega vs. Kazarian & Daniels, but Omega turned it down.
Hangman Page Can’t Lose This Match
Kazarian would take advantage early with a takedown, and stopping the power of Page using his veteran instincts. Page would be taken down to the mat, and then brought up in a cravate only to take some knees to the skull and being hit with a neckbreaker. He’d manage a comeback catching a running crossbody after shoving Kazarian off, slamming him into the mat.
Some heavy chops from Page would drop Kazarian, before taking a snap suplex. Kazarian would take refuge in the corner, and come back hard with some strikes of his own, before being sent over the top rope and hit with a springboard lariat and a dive over the top rope.
Trying to get back in the ring, Kazarian would cut Page off with a leg drop over the rope, before doubling down and hitting a springboard variant as well. A russian leg drop would drop him, as Omega on commentary explains how long it’s been since Page had a competitive singles match.
Frankie Kazarian Shows He Still Has It
Kazarian would go for a suplex, and Page was looked out of sorts, but still fought before being beat down and hit with a Fisherman Suplex and locked into a front facelock on the mat. Page would fight back to his feet, and try to get back into this. He needed to show he’s a singles wrestler still, he doesn’t need to tag out.
Kazarian would hit a big running elbow, but Page came back just as hard. Page would flip out of a german suplex, and hit a big lariat, dropping Kazarian where he stood. Both men would be showing their tiredness, and Page would catch Kazarian for his signature fall away slam. He’d kip up and hit a running Shooting Star Press.
Kazarian would head onto the apron, dodge the springboard lariat and hit a slingshot DDT for a near fall. One more big move either way could end this one, and Page would be hit with an Unprettier, but kicked out at two. Omega on commentary says that’s when he’d come in to make the save in a tag match.
What Can End This Match?
Page came back quickly with a sliding lariat, followed by a pumphandle death valley driver, getting a near fall as well, having forgotten to hook the leg. He’d be sent to the apron, and hit with a slingshot cutter, again kicking out. Both men have used all but their biggest shots. Kazarain would slam Page down and look for a springboard splash, only to be caught with a sitout powerbomb.
Page went to the apron to set up the Buckshot Lariat, but Kazarian slipped underneath and dodged an Asai Moonsault attempt. Kazarian tried to throw Page into the ring but Page just came back with a big forearm. Page would fight on the apron to try and hit the Buckshot, finally getting it for the win.
This was the biggest singles match Page had this year, and showed how resilient he is. Will Page be on his way to singles success following this match? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
