AEW Full Gear: Kenny Omega Defeats Hangman Page, Earns Future AEW World Championship Match

Kenny Omega defeated Hangman Page in a violent opening match at AEW Full Gear, earning a future shot at the AEW World Championship. "The Cleaner" was taken to the limit by his former tag partner but managed to dodge Page's Buckshot Lariat finisher late in the match. He quickly countered with two V Triggers, then a One-Winged Angel to score the pin.

Omega and Page dropped the AEW World Tag Team Championships at All Out, prompting Omega to demand a "clean slate" by focusing on being a singles wrestler. He joined the AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament (much to Hangman's chagrin) and advanced by beating Sonny Kiss and Penta El Zero Miedo — all while showing off more aspects of his old "Cleaner" persona from New Japna.
