So that’s where he went. Sometimes in wrestling, you will see a complete surprise that throws you off. For one reason or another, a story sees a twist which takes you completely away from what was expected. Things might not make sense at the moment, but then you find out what is going on and it all becomes clear. That is the case again, and now we have the explanation.

Back on the July 28 edition of AEW Dynamite, Hangman Page teamed with the Dark Order to face the Elite in a ten man elimination tag. There were some stipulations attached to the match, as Page and the Dark Order would receive shots at the World and Tag Team Titles if they could win. That would seem to be a layup, but then the Elite wound up winning. So what happened?

According to, Page has been scheduled to take some time off due to the upcoming birth of his first child at some point in the coming weeks. As a result, Page did not appear on this week’s edition of Dynamite, but he did appear on the April 5 episode. There is no word on how long Page will be away or if he is scheduled to be in a match at All Out on September 5.

Page is already quite the star. Check out what he can do:

Opinion: That is the kind of change that makes sense as Page is one of the bigger stars in AEW and should not be gone save for something important. Getting ready to become a father is about as important of a reason as he could have and it is nice to see him getting to have the time to be with his wife rather than on the road. Page can come back to AEW in a few weeks or months and I’m sure things will be just fine.

What do you think of Page? Will he ever be World Champion? Let us know in the comments below.
