Looks like Hangman is returning to AEW... for a house show match with Big Bill?

Bryan Danielson used Blackpool Combat Club’s trusty screwdriver to stab Hangman Page in the eye on the April 5 Dynamite.

We understandably haven’t seen him since. But that doesn’t stop there from being hopes and expectations that his music will hit whenever BCC is brawling with Page’s former(?) friends The Elite.

AEW’s got an angle cooking for their house show in Page’s home state of Virginia tomorrow night (May 13), though. According to this tweet the company sent out this afternoon, Hangman was booked to face Big Bill in Salem this weekend, and The Firm’s seven footer isn’t letting his scheduled opponent weasel out of it just because he probably only has one good eye.

AEW’s promotion of the Salem show has centered around Page since it was announced...

... so they either had to ignore the storyline or do something like this. Tying non-televised cards to on-screen angles can be a smart thing to do, but how will the crowd react if their fellow Virginian doesn’t show? Alternatively, does it damage the story if Page’s first appearance in six weeks is for a one-off and not to try for revenge on Danielson & the BCC?

Based on his Instagram Story, Page is packing his wrestling boots and an eye patch for a trip, so it seems he’s intent on showing up for his fellow Virginians...

We’ll see how AEW plays it tomorrow night.
