Dutch Mantell recently shared his honest thoughts on Hangman Page and Adam Cole’s match at this week’s AEW Rampage.
The pair went to war for the AEW Championship in a Texas Deathmatch that featured several brutal and memorable spots. After a back-and-forth battle, Hangman Page took down Adam Cole with a Jedi on the outside with barbed wire wrapped around his head, resulting in him being counted out.
speaking on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Smack Talk, Dutch Mantell pointed out where Page attempted a moon jump on the outside, only to receive a perfectly timed Superkick from Cole. The former WWE manager said both performers were trying to do too much in the match and suggested mitigating the risk factor.
Although the movement was perfect, there was a small margin of error. Mantell thought this could have resulted in an unforeseen injury:
“Trust me guys, someone could get hurt doing this stuff. They’re trying to do too much. God bless them. I hope they’re just doing what they want to do. But you have to admire Hangman Page for the perfect moment there [Moonsault]. If you miss it by even 1/10th of a second, that could be bad news.” (24:47 – 25:55)
