Adam “Hangman” Page spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News and discussed how joining Bullet Club was a life changing moment. “It’s been crazy,” Page said of the move. “It’s definitely been a whirlwind of a year. I was a high school teacher when I joined Bullet Club and started going to Japan. I quit that. I threw the papers up in the air and (whistles) out of there. It literally changed my life.”
Page also spoke about how his first year in Ring of Honor left him bitter due to fan reaction. “That first year I was in Ring of Honor, maybe it wasn’t even a year, I was wearing the trucker hat thing and wearing John Deere stuff because I felt like part of what made me different from a lot of guys was that I was kind of a good ol’ boy and a southern type of guy,” he said. “I don’t know if that’s something that resonates a lot with wrestling fans today. I found that out. That made me kind of bitter about wrestling because I felt like who I thought I was wasn’t something those people were interested in. And that made me bitter. I kind of carried that bitterness for a long time. I think that’s starting to come out now in my work.” Read the full interview at SportingNews.com.
Powell’s POV: This interview was conducted prior to Friday’s War of the Worlds pay-per-view and simply got lost in the shuffle of my email in-box. The rise of Page via his addition to Bullet Club is a really cool story. He showed potential as an undercard wrestler, but he has really made the most of the opportunity. He spoke more about working with the various Bullet Club members, wrestling while teaching, and more.
