Earlier today, AEW tweeted out a video of an “unhinged” promo from Hangman Adam Page after he defeated Jay White on Saturday’s episode of Collision.

The win put Page into the Owen Hart Tournament, where he’ll face Bryan Danielson on this Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite.

If you ever listen to my audio, you’ll know how often I say that pro wrestling is easy. Yet for the last thirty years, we’ve invented and concocted ways to make it more complicated and difficult than it needs to be.

It’s so fucking easy.

And this promo is the proof.

In just two minutes and twenty seconds, Page lays out his motivations for wanting to win the Owen Hart Tournament and face off with Swerve Strickland at AEW’s ALL IN Wembly show.

“We had to leave, we had to leave our home! Do you understand what that’s done to me… and he NEVER paid for it!”

In just two minutes and twenty seconds, it is made clear what drove Page to descend into madness and turn evil after so many years of being among the company’s top babyfaces.

“I gave them every damn thing that I had, and they chose him.”

In just two minutes and twenty seconds, Page helps preview and hype his upcoming match with Danielson.

“Our record is 1-1-1… I was never as driven as I am right now.”

In just two minutes and twenty seconds, Page makes it clear why it is so important for him to beat Danielson, why it is so important for him to get a shot at Strickland’s AEW World Title, why it is so important to do it on the company’s biggest stage (ALL IN Wembley) and that he will stop at nothing to do it.

Ladies and gentlemen, THAT is pro wrestling.

It’s so easy.

This promo is brilliant.
