As the All-Atlantic Championship tournament plots along towards its inevitable conclusion, a four-way bout at Forbidden Door to decide the inaugural winner of AEW‘s newest championship, one of the more intriguing contests in Round 1 made its way onto Dynamite for the fans in attendance both in the arena and watching from home, Miro versus Ethan Page, in a battle of Canda versus Bulgaria.
Taking to the ring alongside Dan Lambert, who, like Chris Jericho, was pulling double-duty on the show, Page prepared to back up his very good promo about prayers and wrestling from the previous week's Rampage in what would have probably gone down as the biggest win of his AEW career.
The keyword of that statement? Was.
Facing off against one of the biggest opponents of his career – both physically and literally – Page gave it all he had but, unfortunately, was unable take care of business against the former TNT Champion, succumbing to the Game Over like oh so many performers before him. Despite his best efforts, Page wasn't able to come out on top, and, despite Lambert's best, um, intentions, he won't have a pair of champions in his American Top Team stable.

And as for Miro? Well, with his spot on the Forbidden Door Pay-Per-View now secured, his holy quest to make it to wrestling heaven and put it under new management can continue on into the future, even if the logistics of such a lofty pursuit remain a bit vague. Still, if someone can figure it out, it's probably “The Redeemer.”
