Hangman Page won his and PAC's rubber match at Full Gear, handing the Brit his first singles loss in AEW to date.
Hangman Page and PAC have both had different starts to their AEW careers than they would have envisioned. The pair were supposed to clash for the first time back at Double or Nothing. However, due to reasons which are still not entirely clear, that match happened at a non-televised, non-AEW show before the even instead.
Page won that match, and PAC has since leveled the playing field by defeating The Hangman during an episode of Dynamite. It might not have been the original plan, but all of that set up the perfect scenario for Full Gear. A rubber match between the two to determine who is the best once and for all.
Even better, as pointed out by Jim Ross after the match, going into Full Gear, PAC and Page were numbers two and three respectively in AEW's singles rankings. That will no longer be the case after Page managed to pick up the win over the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion. The match was impossible to call from beginning to end, and Page's win means PAC is no longer unbeaten in singles competition.
Towards the end of the match, PAC locked in his Brutalizer on Page and things looked bleak for the eventual winner. The Brutalizer is the same move PAC used to put away Trent during the opening match of this week's Dynamite. The Hangman fought back to win, however, and now he will likely find himself in second place once the rankings have been updated after Full Gear.
In fact, depending on the result of Full Gear's AEW Title match, Page could well be the number one contender to the World Championship. If Cody loses, his record will presumably be irrelevant after he promised to never challenge for the title again should he lose to Chris Jericho. That would leave the door open for Page to have a second crack at Le Champion, the man he lost to back at All Out.
