Kenny Omega and Hangman Page’s tag team and storyline have been a massive highlight of 2020. Their ongoing storyline has been some of the best long-term booking in recent memory.
Now, Omega has opened up about his team with Page. Spending a year in a tag team can be daunting but Omega brought a ton of positives out of the situation. Here are his comments from his recent interview with Sean Ross Sapp:
“We’ve got a lot of alpha dogs in our division and it was really awesome to almost run the gauntlet and work with all of these guys and for me to have this long-term story with Hangman Page, and for us to more so explore our characters in that division, it was really rewarding and I’m really glad that Hangman was able to show his personality because inside of wrestling and outside of wrestling he’s got one of the most fun characters to watch and to cheer for. With how many people we have in AEW it’s tough to see everyone. It really is.
You have to make the best of every situation you’re given and you would have thought that maybe our characters would have been watered down in a tag division because you have more bodies to deal with but I felt that being able to play off each other really helps tell the story of camaraderie and our motivations and who we really are as people and now that we’ve exited out of that situation you’re gonna now more about us as people in our singles career pursuit.”
Kenny Omega defeated Hangman Page at AEW Full Gear to become the number one contender to the AEW World Championship. He is currently set to challenge for the title next week on AEW Dynamite.
