Considering AEW has left a lot on the table thus far due to there booking of his feud with Jon Moxley it has left a question on the table who is next for the World Champion. Omega has had a short program with Pac, and Fenix, but has had his focus on Moxley since his title win in December. Either way though after the deathmatch it is time to move on from Moxley and find a new challenger. It is possible that Omega could have smaller challengers wasting time in between Revolution and Double or Nothing. Looking at the rankings both Pac and Jungle Boy provide interesting challengers for the World Champion and both actually could give a bigger rivalry considering they have tag team partners in Lucha Brothers and Jurassic Express respectively.
However, speaking of rankings there is one name that catches my eye and it's the number one ranked wrestler Hangman Page. Since the end of his tag team with Omega it has seemed like Page started associating with the Dark Order. Pulling an interesting picture into perspective with the Dark Order, The former Elite and Bullet Club all under the same banner. Also the former longest reining tag team champions. Page has really found his own way in the last year since taking his own path away from Young Bucks and Omega. I mean who else could get drinking over like Adam Page has in the last few months.
Think about this an announcement of a battle royal on Dynamite winner gets a title shot against Kenny Omega at Double or Nothing. It can be one of those situations where Kenny is focused on his recent challengers and making sure Christian Cage doesn't win further planting seeds for a feud. Christian doesn't need to challenge for the World Title this soon and we can wait on this feud for a little while. Imagine Don Callis and Omega on commentary for the battle royal and their surprise when they see Adam Page is victorious and laughed at because of his recent association with Dark Order. Page has shown that he can have fun and Omega has gotten a lot more serious in recent months which could lead to the line you will never World Champion, because this is a business not a funhouse your a joke Kenny Omega is your punchline.
In my opinion, I don't think that Page needs a long feud with Omega and that this feud could be more like a space saver instead of a big deal. It could also set the stage for a bigger feud down the road instead of rushing into something now. Either way a feud with Page would revisit a past rivalry and give us a break from Moxley vs Omega. In that same battle royal it could set up other matches for Double or Nothing focusing on Moxley & Kingston against Good Brothers, and Christian Cage vs Kip Sabian setting up a small quick feud for Christian and touching on the unspoken other side of Moxley's feud with Omega.
