Hangman Page, Dark Order raise stakes against The EliteAlso at Fyter Fest Night 1, Hangman Adam Page officially challenged for the AEW World Championship held by his former tag team partner, Kenny Omega. Omega and his group The Elite interrupted their former teammate and berated him as AEW World Tag Team Champion Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks entered the ring to meet with Page face-to-face. Matt Jackson brought up Page’s alcohol use before Page punched him. Omega got ready to attack from behind but Hangman received help from his new friends in The Dark Order. Page still demanded a championship match, while Omega proposed a different idea. Omega challenged Page and The Dark Order to a five-on-five elimination match against himself and members of The Elite at a future date. If Page and The Dark Order win, then Page gets to challenge for the AEW World Championship and Dark Order members can challenge The Young Bucks for the AEW World Tag Team Championship. If The Elite wins, no title matches will take place. Page accepted the terms.
