Hangman Adam Page is BACK. He returned to AEW TV last night.
Hangman was revealed as “The Joker” - the surprise entrant in the Casino Ladder Match on Dynamite...and Hangman got the win. That puts him in line to get the next title shot against AEW Champion Kenny Omega.
Speaking of Omega...he, Adam Cole and the Young Bucks beat Bryan Danielson, Christian Cage, & Jurassic Express last night. Christian was knocked out of the match by an IndyTaker on the entrance ramp. Jungle Boy took the pin after he was hit with a 4-way BTE Trigger.
A new women’s title was unveiled on last night’s Dynamite: The TBS Championship. A tournament will be held to crown the first champion, beginning on January 5th.
Sammy Guevara beat Bobby Fish to retain the TNT Championship. After the match, Scorpio Sky, along with Dan Lambert and members of American Top Team ambushed Guevara. That eventually brought out Chris Jericho and Jake Hager...who chased off the MMA pros.

As for Fish, AEW later announced that he has signed on with the company.
