In the main event of AEW Double Or Nothing 2022, CM Punk and “Hangman” Adam Page tried to hit each other’s finishers. Adam Page was successful with the GTS hit on Punk however it was the repeated botches from CM Punk to his Buckshot Lariat, this resulted in the toxic AEW fans quickly booing their hero Punk when that happened.
During an interview with Wrestlinginc, Hangman Page had the following to say about Punk botching his finishing move:
“It made me feel better about myself that I can do it, I know that. Grabbing the ropes and flipping over like that and landing on your feet and hitting the guy in the face is hard on any day at any time, much less, you know, 20 minutes into a match, and I think that made me have a little more appreciation and pride in the ability to do it.
It doesn’t surprise me that he couldn’t do it, and that’s not a knock on him because it’s a tough-a$$ thing to do, and it’s something I’ve done for a long time. I’ve had time to sharpen it, he hasn’t. So, I don’t know that I have the best Go To Sleep in the world either, certainly not as good as his because he beat my a$$ with it.”
