NJPW/ROH News: Adam "Hangman" Page talks about his career goals, Bullet Club's rise and more
What’s the story?
Prior to his match at Ring of Honor’s Final Battle pay-per-view, Bullet Club member Adam “Hangman” Page sat down in an exclusive interview with Still Real To Us to discuss the Bullet Club’s increase in popularity and the faction’s rise in ROH.
In case you didn’t know…
Adam Page is considered as one of the brightest young talents currently working under the Ring of Honor banner. The former CWF Heavyweight Champion made his debut for ROH in 2011, and in 2016 during the World of the Wars tour, Page joined the Bullet Club after turning his back on Colt Cabana.
In August of 2017, Page won his first title in ROH when he and his fellow Bullet Club stablemates The Young Bucks captured the ROH 6-man Tag Team Titles. The trio of Page, Matt and Nick Jackson are collectively billed as The Hung Bucks.
The heart of the matter
During his interaction with Still Real To Us, Adam Page claimed that the Bullet Club has now become a part of pop culture due to its rising popularity. The 26-year-old also credited former Bullet Club members such as the likes of Finn Balor, AJ Styles, and current leader, Kenny Omega, for helping Bullet Club establish their dominance in New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring of Honor.
The Virginia native also thanked his current BC stablemates for helping him develop his in-ring style. Page stated that The Young Bucks, Cody and Marty Scurll are on a different level and they have always been there for Page, who has learned a lot in the past year from these men. Additionally, Page said that winning his first title in ROH alongside the Young Bucks was a career-changing moment for him.
“I want to hold on to these Six-Man Titles for a long time. They are fairly new titles. Only three teams have held them. I feel like it’s in our hands to make these titles special,” Page stated.
Hangman is currently also working for NJPW, as part of ROH’s working relationship with the promotion and the Bullet Club youngster has also revealed his intentions of winning the ROH TV Title in the future. Page’s singles goal is to win one particular prize - the ROH TV Title.
Personally, I am a huge fan of Adam Page and I believe he is simply tremendous as a singles performer. Seeing Adam Page winning a singles title in the future will definitely be great and I also believe that he will be a great contender for the NJPW Never Openweight Championship.
