Looking over a cagematch list I choose the Full Gear 2020 bout vs. Omega?  

Hey, I said no Elite. I'll go through the motions of this for the sake of science but not with Omega or a Buck or, I don't know, Brandon Cutler, either. Cody's ok.

He consistently has no mid-level offense. Just saying.

I’ve seen him do a kick to the midsection once.

Pick me a random 2020 or 2021 (before Punk shows up) singles Page match vs someone that's not part of the Elite to watch and I'll see what I can do.

Mainly doing this for the Matt style write ups. So I’ll pick at random and cheat to include 2019

 

- vs Chris Jericho 8/32/2019
- vs Sammy Guevara 10/30/2019

- vs Colt Canana 10/21/2020

- vs John Silver 11/19/2020

- vs Matt Hardy 3/7/2020

- vs Powerhouse Hobbs 6/26/21
 

5 paragraphs each match, MLA citation.

I watched this. I liked it. I thought Hobbs was good asserting himself, especially on the outside and his cutoffs were well-timed and super credible too. Page was sympathetic in his selling as he worked most of the match from underneath but it did not at all dissuade me from my thoughts in the least. He went from kicks and punches and one clothesline early, and a Buckshot tease, to backflips off the top and springboard shots and a moonsault press on his hope spots and most of what he got at the end were big boots, a deadlift German, and the Deadeye. He could work Bret's exact five moves of doom into his arsenal to help fill out the middle of his matches and he'd be way better for it.

Really liked the match against Brian Cage at Double or Nothing last year. Also enjoyed the Ricky Starks matched on Dynamite where unfortunately Starks took a bad bump off a suplex that jacked his neck. Both matches in 2020 Eliminator tournament prior to the Omega match were also good, especially the one against Wardlow. Going back to the very early days of AEW, his series of matches against Pac were a lot of fun as well.

For some non-AEW matches, really liked the IWGP U.S. title match against Jay White as his breakout performance and also Hangman was one of the better things about a very mixed 2018 G1.

  • Adam Page vs. Brian Cage from last year's Double or Nothing.
  • Adam Page vs. Lance Archer on Dynamite, 9th February 2022.
  • Adam Page vs. Adam Cole on this week's AEW Rampage.

Page/Archer is the best of the three.

I'd actually rate Page-Cole from this week's Rampage higher of the two really good Texas Death Matches, and include that match in the next tier of awesome AEW matches this year right below Page-Danielson and Bucks-FTR.

Adam Page/Adam Cole was my least favourite of the three Texas Death Matches. Adam Page/Lance Archer is still my #1. One of the best finished to any AEW match with Page using the ref to do the vault into the Buckshot Lariat through two tables as Archer/Jake Roberts removed the top ropes. Match also had Page bounce off the ring steps from the Blackout. Jon Moxley/Lance Archer in second place. That didn't go long but made the most of the time it went.

So Anarchy in the Arena from AEW Double or Nothing 2022, 29th May last Sunday. Where does it place for you? I thinking #1-3 range so it might replace Adam Page vs. Bryan Danielson from AEW Dynamite, 6th January 2022 as my worldwide MOTY.

For me.  The BCC vs The League of Extraordinary Ice Cream Men is a solid #2 behind Bryan/Hangman.

I'd have Anarchy in the Arena 3rd-4th overall in 2022, definitely behind Hangman-Bryan and Jericho-Kingston, and coin flip with MJF-Punk dog collar match. It was definitely best mat h at Double or Nothing and arguably five-stars, but not quite as the top two matches of 2022.

Going to rewatch some AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door matches that will likely appear on my update:

Spoiler

Orange Cassidy vs. Will Ospreay, Claudio Castagnoli vs. Zack Sabre Jr and Jon Moxley vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi.

Outside shot: Chris Jericho/Minoru Suzuki/Sammy Guevara vs.Eddie Kingston/ Wheeler Yuta/Shota Umino and Sting/Darby Allin/Shingo Takagi vs. Nick Jackson/Matt Jackson/El Phantasmo.

There's also Blood & Guts on this week's Dynamite: 

Spoiler

Jon Moxley/ Claudio Castagnoli/Wheeler Yuta/Eddie Kingston/Santana/Ortiz vs. Chris Jericho/Sammy Guevara/Daniel Garcia/Matt Menard/Angelo Parker.
