‘Hangman’ Adam Page will be facing CM Punk at next month’s Double Or Nothing 2022 pay-per-view on May 29 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The announcement was made during tonight’s AEW Dynamite episode.
The match between the two men was teased last week when after he defeated Dax Harwood, CM Punk came face to face with Hangman Page at the top of the entrance ramp. Hangman held his title up in the air in front of Punk before they parted ways without any further interaction.
Instead of some angle leading to the official announcement, it was first announced after CM Punk wrapped up as a guest commentator for the Owen Hart Cup qualifying match between FTR members Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood.
Punk then grabbed a microphone and made a brief statement on the match’s announcement.
“Double or Nothing is in Las Vegas, Nevada,” Punk said about their upcoming title match. “And I have never been a gambling man but Hangman, listen to me, I will always bet on myself. Win, lose, or draw, Double or Nothing, you will know that you have been in a fight with CM Punk. And I will continue to fight until the wheels fall off!”
This is due to some creative shifting backstage before tonight’s episode, after Page tested positive for COVID-19.
Punk made it first known that he is interested in chasing the World Title when he defeated MJF in a dog collar match at AEW Revolution on March 6, 2022. While celebrating his victory on the turnbuckles, Punk motioned that he wanted the title belt around his waist.
This is the first official match announced for AEW Double Or Nothing 2022 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Stay tuned for additional announcements on the pay-per-view.
