AEW’s tag team title scene has been popping ever since Hangman Page returned to the ring from coronavirus quarantine. Hangman and Kenny Omega have successfully defended the straps once, have a title contest for the upcoming Dynamite on Wednesday night, and then another match where the belts will be on the line in early July for Fyter Fest. If you have been confused by the champs’ hectic schedule, you aren’t alone.
Hangman himself just realized he has a tag title match against Dustin Rhodes and QT Marshall.
wait what i thought best friends were next contenders, what the hell is even going on around here, a man tried to cut my head off with a hacksaw last week. https://t.co/xfJc7IBg7R— HANGMAN PAGE (@theAdamPage) June 14, 2020
Hangman must have been too drunk to pay attention last week.
AEW President and CEO Tony Khan stepped in to clarify the situation, while Dax Harwood of FTR tried to simplify things.
Just give the belts to us, Tony.— Dax FTR (@DaxHarwood) June 14, 2020
Make sense to you? If not, Hangman & Omega wrestle QT & Dustin on Wednesday. Also on Wednesday, Best Friends wrestle Le Sex Gods to be #1 contenders at Fyter Fest. Trent and Chuck Taylor were so irate at Chris Jericho juicing Orange Cassidy that they demanded a match and put their previously earned #1 contender status on the line. So, basically we have an unofficial four team tournament.
As for why Jimmy Havoc tried to use a hacksaw on Hangman, he had good reason.
You did kick me in the face. You deserved it.— Jimmy Havoc (@JimmyHavoc) June 14, 2020
Hangman’s response to all this confusion was an easy remedy.

Back to boozing, I assume.
This entire Twitter exchange brought me laughter in many ways. We have Hangman being confused, drunk, or both, Khan taking it seriously by explaining the conundrum, and also the peanut gallery of rogues chiming in. I love how they are all naturally in character. It makes me feel like professional wrestling is still real, damn it.
Best of all from Hangman’s beer talk, Colt Cabana received good news about his physique.
Wait....Are we allowed to have that!!!!!— Colt Cabana (@ColtCabana) June 10, 2020
I wonder if the Dark Order allows alcohol.
