The Young Bucks talk Omega versus Page at Full Gear.
All Elite Wrestling’s next pay-per-view on their yearly schedule is Full Gear on November 13th from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Among the announced matches for the show is Kenny Omega defending the AEW World Championship against Hangman Adam Page, which is a rematch from Full Gear 2020.
To promote the pay-per-view, The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) spoke to Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso and talked about the world title match. Both Matt and Nick expressed that Hangman Page is the future of All Elite Wrestling and both talents believe he might be the most over talent in AEW.
Matt: It’s been fun to live Hangman’s journey in real time. He was just a shy, introverted kid who wore a baseball cap when I met him. Now he’s a megastar. Maybe the most over guy in a company full of world-class wrestlers.
Nick: There’s no doubt that Hangman is the future of AEW. He is arguably the most over guy in our company and I feel like his backstory is very relatable to the fans, which makes his character so compelling. Him and Kenny Omega is box office.
The former AEW Tag Team Champions heaped praise onto Kenny Omega as well. Nick said it’s been the best time of he and Matt’s careers being back with Omega on a weekly basis. Matt added that any show that doesn’t have an Elite match on it will suffer or won’t be as good.
Nick: It really has been the best time of our career being with Kenny on a weekly basis. It’s so good to see him year-round. We’re the best of friends and we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without him, and I feel it’s the same way for him. We’re all very competitive and if he sees us have a killer match or segment, it drives him to try and top it, and I feel like that’s what makes The Elite so special.
Matt: Kenny is the greatest singles wrestler in wrestling and we’ve said it for years. Any show that doesn’t have an Elite match in it is going to suffer or just simply not be as good. He’s just like us, always thinking outside the box. No idea is too crazy. That’s how we keep challenging ourselves to get to that next level.
The AEW World Tag Team Titles will be on the line at Full Gear as the champions Penta El Zero M and Rey Fenix take on FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler).
