Former AEW World Champion ‘Hangman’ Adam Page may soon have some new gold as he will reportedly challenge for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door.
Page lost the AEW World Title to CM Punk at last weekend’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view event, marking Punk’s first title win in over a decade.
During this week’s AEW Dynamite, Hiroshi Tanahashi answered the open challenge by Punk for a match at the June 26th crossover event.
Dave Meltzer noted on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio that the plan is for Page to challenge IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada.
That match won’t be announced until after Dominion on June 15, when Okada will defend the title against Jay White.
