‘Hangman’ Adam Page and Swerve Strickland will face each other in a Texas Death Match at AEW Full Gear.
The stipulation was made official after a fiery promo from Page during Saturday’s episode of AEW Collision.
At Wrestle Dream, it took Nana, it took his crown, but you had me beat. You could have taken my spot, you could have challenged for the World Championship. But what you decided to do instead is the biggest mistake that you have made in your sad, pathetic, and meaningless life.
Swerve, when you opened the door and you crossed the threshold into my home, you stepped through the gates of hell, and at Full Gear, I take you down. I take you down to the fiery abyss for eternity because at Full Gear, you’ve got The Hangman in a Texas Death Match.
And if I had to give you one piece of advice in this next week that you’ve got, I’d tell you to take some time and walk around Swerve’s house. I’d tell you to look at every photo on the wall, look at pictures of your mom, your dad, your kids, your nephews, your nieces, cousins, aunts, uncles.
And I want you to imagine every single precious moment that you could have had with them. I want you to see every birthday, every prom, every funeral, every wedding. And I want you to know that you will never, never be there. Not while you can walk, not while you can talk, Swerve, because at Full Gear, I take you to the bottom. I take you to the abyss. I leave you in fire for eternity.
And I want you to know that every November, I’ll walk with my son hand in hand, and we’ll pay you a visit. And I’ll watch him piss on your grave.
“You’ve got the Hangman in a Texas Death Match!”

A little later in the show, it was announced that the Death Match stipulation had been made official by Tony Khan.
Hangman and Strickland are feuding because of a home invasion angle on the October 25 episode of AEW Dynamite that saw Strickland enter Page’s house and make it as far as his child’s crib.
