During the rally in Jacksonville that initially announced All Elite Wrestling as a new promotion in the pro wrestling space, PAC showed up to start up a feud with Hangman Page. This inevitably led to the two being put together for a match at the upcoming Double or Nothing pay-per-view (PPV) on Sat., May 25 in Las Vegas.
That match is no longer happening.
That’s the word from the Wrestling Observer, who report the change has been made due to “creative differences.” From the Observer:
With Pac’s regular matches in the U.K., it’s known that beacuse he takes his status as world champion with Dragon Gate seriously, he has not agreed to any losses since winning the Open the Dream Gate title and to protect that has done 30:00 draws with Zack Sabre Jr. and Will Ospreay. On the flip side, AEW wants to present a sports-like atmosphere and had their own direction for what they wanted.
So there’s that.
This comes after Page showed up in England for a surprise match against PAC after the latter issued an open challenge. Said match ended in a disqualification win for Page, and the Observer reports it will be released for free sometime this week to make up for the fact that the match isn’t happening at Double or Nothing.
