“Hangman” Adam Page and The Young Bucks recently spoke with Men’s Health magazine to promote this Saturday’s AEW Full Gear 2021 pay-per-view.
During the discussion, Page and the Bucks spoke about their days as The Bullet Club, wiith “Hangman” recalling how inferior he felt next to so many top talents.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
Hangman Page on his time in the Bullet Club and feeling inferior next to the talent involved in the group: “I was the guy who was the last to join the Bullet Club, on a house show that wasn’t even on TV. I was the guy who was getting beat in all these multi-man matches in New Japan, I was the guy who didn’t even have a winning record in New Japan’s G1 Climax tournament. It feels like a fresh thing in wrestling to be that honest about how you feel in that situation. But what other truth could there be than to feel inferior in this group?”
The Young Bucks on Page feeling inferior: “This is actually the first I’ve heard of that,” Matt Jackson said. “When we met Hangman all those years ago, he was really just a new, unknown shy kid hiding under a baseball cap at ROH. Nick, Kenny and myself were already pretty well known, well-traveled, established wrestlers. I can see those original feelings he might’ve had when he initially met us, be something tough to shake off. It could be a little imposter’s syndrome, which I’d love to tell him goes away, but by experience, I don’t think it ever does. I hope he one day can look back from the beginning of our friendship and realize we were never competing, or sizing him up. We were welcoming him in to be one of us.”
“He’s never personally told Matt and I that,” Nick Jackson chimed in. “I feel like he’s crazy to think that way because he’s one of the best in the world. I feel like the fans think the same way about him. He’s become a superstar.”
