Career[change | change source]

All Elite Wrestling[change | change source]

On January 2, 2019, Page signed a contract with All Elite Wrestling (AEW).[1]

On May 25, he made his AEW in-ring debut at Double or Nothing. Page debuted in the Casino Battle Royale and won the match after last eliminating MJF.[2] He earned a AEW World Championship match at All Out. At All Out, Page was defeated by Chris Jericho.[3]

On Night 2 of Chris Jericho's Rock 'N' Wrestling Rager at Sea Part Deux: Second Wave, Page teamed with his fellow Elite member Kenny Omega. The two defeated SoCal Uncensored (Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky) to win the AEW Tag Team Championships, as well as Page's first championship in AEW.[4] On the August 27 episode of Dynamite, the Young Bucks kicked Page out of The Elite after Page stopped The Bucks from winning their match.[5] At All Out, Page and Omega were defeated by FTR (Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler) and lost the AEW Tag Team Championships.[6] Page and Omega would both focus on their singles match after. Page and Omega would meet in the finals of a tournament to crown the next AEW World Champion. Omega would defeat Page in the finals at Full Gear.[7]

The next few months saw The Dark Order (Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, Alex Reynolds and John Silver) trying to recruit Page and have him join their group. Page would team with The Dark Order to face Omega, the Young Bucks and the Good Brothers (Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson) in a 10-man tag team elimination match. They lost the match. If they would have won, they would have been given a shot at the World and Tag Team championships.[8] After getting beatdown by Omega and his group, Page would take time off to be with his family after the birth of his son.[9]

On the October 6 episode of Dynamite, Page made his return by winning the Casino Ladder match and earning a shot at Omega's World Championship.[10]

At Full Gear, Page was able to defeat Omega and win the AEW World Championship. The match was very well liked by fans and critics, with wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer giving the match a 5 1⁄2 star rating.[11] Page received another 5-star match during his defense against Bryan Danielson at Winter Is Coming which ended in a 60 minute time limit draw.[12] At Double or Nothing, Page would lose the title to CM Punk.[13]
