Adam Page Says He Got The Name “Hangman” From Luke Gallows

One of the company’s most explosive and fastest rising star Adam Page was recently a guest on an episode of AEW Unrestricted, where he was interviewed by Referee Aubrey Edwards and Tony Schiavone about him graduating from Virginia Tech in two years as well as his time in Bullet Club. According to Adam Page, joining the Bullet Club was the best thing that could have ever happened to him.

This is what Adam Page said:

“Genuinely, the best thing that ever happened to me, getting put with Matt [Jackson] and Nick [Jackson].” “Adam Cole was joining the Bullet Club too. That’s best thing that ever happened to me, getting to work with those guys, who were not only on a run, but I came to realize the more I worked with those guys, we saw eye-to-eye on a lot of things.”

“They made me realize a lot of the things that I thought about wrestling, that I didn’t know that anybody else felt this way about them, I was able to feel validated in that way. When we would go to shoot little stuff for BTE and I thought, ‘oh we should do this. We should do that,’ and it felt right for once. This is great. This is where I’m supposed to be.”

Adam Page then talked about stuff he was doing in Being The Elite and the show being the biggest point of his legacy in his career.

This is what Adam Page said:

“Looking back, the stuff we started doing with BTE and everything that blossomed from it, will probably be one of if not like the biggest point of my legacy, in my career.” “Not even like I was the guy doing it. We all had fun doing this stuff together, but a lot of stuff came out of that, a lot of memorable feuds.”

When we were with Ring of Honor, people would show up and attendance was going through the roof, and the people there weren’t necessarily concerned about what we were doing in Ring of Honor. They would be chatting about me killing Joey Ryan or whatever the hell’s going on. So like holy s–t, we’re onto something. We’re filling these arenas. I mean Ring of Honor is doing a great job, but it’s us. We’re doing this. This is where this is coming from.”

Adam Page then talked about he and everyone else who is and was part of Being The Elite never really setting out to do something as grand as it has become. Page also said that it really just felt like a bunch of friends sitting around and joking around.

This is what Adam Page said:

“It never felt like, to me, we were setting out to do something grand.” “It really just felt like a bunch of friends sitting around joking, dicking around about what if Hangman got jealous about Joey Ryan’s penis size, and they had a feud about it, what if this, what if that. What if we did like the RAW invasion. We made fun of that. It was never really, I guess, a quest to be anything grand. It was just us dicking around.”

Adam Page then revealed that he got the name “Hangman” from Luke Gallows and talked about the entire process that went into getting the name “Hangman.”

This is what Adam Page said:

“Probably everything, which is weird because I don’t really know him.” “I met him one time.”

“Probably everything to do with the name ‘Hangman.’ Him, [Karl] Anderson and AJ [Styles] and New Japan knew they were bringing in Adam Cole to be in the Bullet Club, and I guess I was suggested as the other person. So you’re going to have Adam Cole and Adam Page, who both looked kind of similar, had similar wrestling styles, and Adam Cole was like main event ROH guy at that time.”

“So I was going to have to do something a little different, and that was kind of the suggestion to me from Gedo. I kind of thought the name ‘Hangman’ would be cool like if I have this noose like he used to have or whatever. Instead of being Gallows, I’ll be Hangman. Me telling you that story was probably about as much thought was put into the whole thing at the time because I was just so excited to get over there and get the thing going.”
