After being absent from AEW television for months, Adam "Hangman" Page and The Young Bucks finally returned to Dynamite this week to help save Kenny Omega from being attacked by The Inner Circle inside TIAA Bank Field. Jericho and the rest of the group popped up on the big screen at the end of the show to taunt Matt Hardy (who just beat Sammy Guevara in the main event), saying that they were about to end Omega's career so he'd have to fight in the Stadium Stampede match at Double or Nothing alone. Suddenly Matt and Nick Jackson appeared dove from the front row of the stands onto the group.
Page then ran the full length of the football field (in cowboy boots) to fully even the odds. The show went off the air with The Inner Circle retreating, though Page didn't stick around to celebrate with the rest of the group.
Page and The Bucks were unable to travel throughout a good portion of the pandemic, though they did pop up each week on Being The Elite to keep people talking. The Bucks even took part in a match on 200nd episode of the hit web series by facing each other in a Falls Count Anywhere match, which eventually took on traits of the recent cinematic matches fans have seen on WWE television.
AEW's second annual Double or Nothing pay-per-view will take place this Saturday. The show was originally booked for the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, but had to be moved to Daily's Place in Jacksonville due to the pandemic. The show will feature two new match concepts — the aforementioned Stadium Stampede and the Casino Ladder Match, which works like a normal ladder match with entrants joining Royal Rumble-style.
