Bullet Club superstar Hangman Page recently sat down with Michael Wonsover of ESPN.com to discuss his rise in popularity, role on the Young Bucks’ Being the Elite YouTube series, making his G1 Climax debut in this year’s tournament and a lot more.
During the interview Page noted that he no longer has any major aspirations to “make it” to WWE one day, as his stop in both Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling continues to rise.
“Going to WWE doesn’t feel important to me anymore. It’s not something I’m interested in. I really feel like in the past few years my goals have shifted from, ‘I want to accomplish X, Y, Z,’ to I want to make a good living for my family. I want to have fun and I want to bring something new and fresh to fan’s eyes and have it be something they enjoy, no matter where it is, no matter what capacity. To have an outlet for creativity. That’s been my goal.”
The Hangman wrestled his first ever G1 Climax tournament match early Saturday morning, the most grueling and prestigious annual competition in all of professional wrestling. He found himself dead center in the budding war between The Elite and the newly founded Bullet Club Firing Squad. However unlikely, Page picked up a win (and two points) over fellow Bullet Club member Bad Luck Fale, albeit via disqualification after Tama Tonga and his brother Tanga Loa, the Guerrillas of Destiny, interfered in the bout.
