On December 2, 2020, Kenny Omega defeated Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship with the help of now-former Impact EVP Don Callis. It is a day that continues to live in infamy.

Since then, Kenny Omega has gone on to defend the championship against a variety of contenders. But one person who hasn’t faced him yet is the most likely person to take the strap from him, and that’s “Hangman” Adam Page.

The history between these two wrestlers is complicated, to say the least. But by the time All Out 2021 rolls around, Omega will have been champion for nine months. If anyone is going to take the title from Omega, fans know in their hearts that it has to be Page.

The Year of the Cleaner

2021 has been a rough year for most of the world. That being said, it’s been a pretty damn good one for Kenny Omega. He closed out 2020 by winning the AEW World Championship after losing the AEW World Tag Team Championships a few weeks earlier.

On top of that, he already had the AAA Mega Championship, which he won in late 2019. Then, Omega would take things to another level by also becoming the Impact World Champion in April of 2021. That title also includes the former TNA Heavyweight Championship title belt.

Kenny has been wandering around for the last few months with four championship belts. Sometimes, he gets some of his cronies to carry his gold to the ring. On a recent episode of Impact, Don Callis carried the AAA title belt, which everyone in AAA should take personally.

Being the champion in three major companies at the same time certainly made 2021 the Year of the Cleaner. At the same time, that big of a run has to come to an end. Everything that goes up must come back down eventually.

The gimmick has run its course

At this point, the gimmick of having Kenny Omega hold enough gold to drag him to the bottom of the ocean is wearing on fans. Anyone who watches enough wrestling is getting tired of checking out different promotions just to see Omega on their screens.

This isn’t meant as a slight to Omega’s work on any level. He’s still one of the best in the business and turns out great matches all the time. But there’s also something called too much of a good thing. Omega’s booking crossed that line weeks ago.

Andrade El Idolo is set to face Omega for the AAA Mega Championship at TripleMania XXIX on August 14, 2021. Sami Callihan will fight Omega for the IMPACT World Championship at Slammiversary 2021 on July 17, 2021. Nothing is guaranteed but title changes seem likely.

That just leaves the AEW World Championship. Kenny Omega has been saying that there’s no one left to challenge him. Evil Uno has been kind enough to point out that the champ has yet to take on the number one ranked wrestler in AEW, Adam Page.

Adam Page vs Kenny Omega at All Out

All Out is the next AEW pay-per-view on the calendar. It is scheduled to take place on September 5, 2021, in Chicago and is completely sold out. So far, the only booked match for the event is the Women’s Casino Battle Royale, which should be interesting.

That being said, Adam Page facing Kenny Omega for the AEW World Championship in the All Out main event seems like a foregone conclusion. Based on his booking between now and then, it might actually be the only title Omega has left by the time the pay-per-view rolls around.

Page is one of the most popular competitors in AEW. Plus, it would bring Page and Omega’s story full circle as they lost the AEW World Tag Team Championships to FTR at last year’s All Out on September 5, 2020. That night was the beginning of Omega’s journey to where he is now.

As such, it only makes sense that this story ends there, too. If he loses to Callihan and Andrade, this match could end up being Kenny Omega’s last stand. And there’s no one better than Adam Page to put the exclamation point on what will be a year-long odyssey for the Cleaner.
