During last night’s episode of Dynamite, a Singles Match took place, where Hangman Page defeated Ryan Nemeth (real-life brother of WWE Star Dolph Ziggler) via pinfall with a buckshot lariat. As the match was taking place, Matt Hardy made his way down to the ring to get a closer look at Page and cheer him on.
Immediately after the match, Omega told Hardy to enter the ring to check what he was doing. Schiavone also made his way inside the ring to find out what was going on between the two wrestlers. Hardy said that he has seen how Hangman got burned by his friends Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks, and wanted to let him know he was in Hangman’s corner.
Matt Hardy then continued and said that the awkward recruiting of the Dark Order also caused him some concern and that he noticed where Hangman had been getting dressed for his matches. Matt then offered up his bigger dressing room — no strings attached, of course — to Hangman, if he ever wanted a change of scenery. The segment ended with that, but it’s possible we could see him try to recruit Page, much like he did with Private Party in recent weeks.
Following the segment, Hangman Page wrote, “why are people always talking at me.” Members of the Dark Order didn’t sit idle by with Matt Hardy possibly trying to recruit Hangman. Evil Uno said, “What the hell was that about?!”
Matt Hardy quickly took to Twitter and defended himself, showing a photo of him with Page at an OMEGA Championship Wrestling Event back in 2013.

I’m very hurt.— MATT HARDY (@MATTHARDYBRAND) January 28, 2021
Some think my words & actions towards @theAdamPage on #AEWDynamite weren’t genuine. This pic is from 2013. I booked Adam on an OMEGA card. Adam is a good man who’s conflicted-I just want to help.
That’s it. So can all the weird #DarkOrder people stop tweeting me? https://t.co/kDlHhTt2PZ pic.twitter.com/g9tFIUvciK
