Kenny Omega Addresses Hangman Page’s Days As Part Of The Bullet Club

Kenny Omega recently spoke with Sports Illustrated for an in-depth interview to promote this Saturday’s AEW Full Gear 2021 pay-per-view.

Ahead of his match against “Hangman” Adam Page, “The Cleaner” spoke about the old days in The Bullet Club and how he knew back then that Page had a bright future ahead of him.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On bringing Hangman Page into the Bullet Club: “We don’t just bring just anyone into our group. If there is one area where the Bucks and I have really honed in, it’s realizing the types of people that have potential for greatness in professional wrestling. This industry has no set of rules or a template for what creates a star. All you need is that raw talent, and it was clear Hangman had that. Hangman had a never-say-die attitude, incredible athleticism and a very clean slate in terms of major injuries. He had this southern cowboy-ish nature, and a personality behind the scenes—one that people now see on camera—of a very lovable human being. We knew this guy was going to be an elite performer. And once AEW came along, we knew this company was meant for him.”

On their program: “Both of us have put a lot of heart and soul into this. We haven’t been handed scripts or sat in production meetings to build this story. A lot of this comes from reality. Maybe we’ve sensationalized some of the details, but there is a lot of truth to the story we’re telling. There is real-life emotion attached to this clash. After this pay-per-view ends, will I be able to take this story—the one that ‘Hangman’ and I have told—and place it amongst some of my favorites?” Omega says. “Can I hang the ‘Hangman’ story on the mantle alongside the Okada story, the [Kota] Ibushi story, the Moxley story, The Elite story and the Bullet Club Civil War? Will the ‘Hangman’ story belong there? My hope is that it will.”
