Terrifying scene in the AEW on Tuesday night … “Hangman” Adam Page — one of the org.’s biggest stars — was taken out of the ring on a stretcher and rushed to the hospital after he landed awkwardly during a match.
Thankfully, however, AEW officials say it appears the wrestler is already on his way to making a full recovery.
The scary incident went down during Page’s scrap with Jon Moxley at AEW Dynamite in Cincinnati, Ohio … when he was struck in the head by a forearm while running at full speed.
Video from the event’s broadcast shows the blow was so violent, it caused Page to come down on his head, unprotected.
Page lay on the mat for several moments after being struck — and quickly, it became apparent to the ref that something was seriously wrong. The match was stopped, and trainers raced in to tend to the 31-year-old.
AEW officials released a statement saying Page was taken to a nearby Cincinnati trauma center … and diagnosed with a concussion. But, fortunately, they added he was discharged shortly after.
“[Page] will remain in AEW’s concussion protocol,” the org. said. “AEW and Hangman Page are grateful for the exemplary response and care of staff and local medical personnel and are appreciative of the love and support of fans everywhere.”
