It's interesting to note that the announcement happened while 'Hangman' Adam Page was on commentary on Dynamite's latest episode. He didn't look too pleased with Kenny Omega being involved in the tournament.

Hangman Page should also most likely be added to the tournament soon, and the current storyline direction hints towards a mouth-watering finals between Omega and Page.

Kenny Omega recently revealed that he was done with the tag team division and his focus was now on resuming his singles career. There has been noticeable tension between Omega and Page in recent weeks, and a match between the two is inevitable at this point.

Omega had the following to say about his impending singles run:

"We've got such a deep tag team division, and you can say, we have one of the best tag team divisions in all of wrestling," Omega said. "So, for us to get to the level that we got — we had to dig deep. We had to find out a little bit about ourselves. The part that I learned about Hangman is a part I don't particularly like. I'm glad we had that experience together. I'm proud of our run. If he hopes to go for the rematch, or to keep our team alive, to reconcile with Matt and Nick. I feel like he better make other plans. I've got my own dreams, my own goals. There are things I'm destined to do here. I gave a year of my life to the team, to Hangman, and to tag team wrestling. I think it's time I go back to singles action and give everyone a piece of what they were hoping to see since day one."
