On the October 18th episode of AEW Dynamite: Title Tuesday, Hangman Adam Page suffered a serious concussion injury in his AEW World Championship match against Jon Moxely. Aside from some general news, there haven’t been many reports on how his health is progressing, especially with AEW Full Gear just hours away.
During the recent AEW media call with Tony Khan, one of the questions that was posed to the AEW President was how Hangman has been doing and his health status before AEW Full Gear. According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, Tony Khan said the following:
Tony Khan says Hangman Page is healing well following his concussion

“Healing” is the key word here. There have been no indications that Hangman Adam Page is ready to return to the ring. There doesn’t seem to be any reason to believe that Hangman will be at AEW Full Gear tonight as a performer.
With Adam Cole also being kept out for what is believed to be serious concussion protocol, the AEW roster is hurting. However, it’s a testament to AEW putting their talent’s health above anything else. For the case of Adam Cole and The Hangman, we’re just going to have to wait and see for progess updates.
What were your thoughts on Adam Page’s AEW World Title reign? Was it a success or a failure?
There’s still a lot for Adam Page to do once he’s medically cleared and prepared to return to AEW television. He’s yet to hold the AEW TNT Championship. Many people would welcome him back into the world title picture, but it’s likely going to be a longer period of time before Page is given another run at the top of the company.
The last time Adam Page was out and returned to AEW television, he was more popular than he’s ever been. “Cowboy Shit” got over with the fans and he rode the wave of momentum all the way to a world title reign. The general feeling seems to be that Hangman will get another shot at the top. It’s just going to be awhile before that happens even with the injury.
