Ethan Page Confirms He Has Signed a 2 Year Deal with Impact

Mar 7, 2019 - by James Walsh

SLAM Sports recently interviewed Impact Wrestling talent Ethan Page, who confirmed that he recently signed a new two-year deal with the promotion. The deal started at the beginning of 2019. Below are some highlights. 

Page on enjoying his work at Impact: “If we’re talking about where I’ve enjoyed working more, I’ve enjoyed working more at Impact, especially with the roster of guys that they have. I think too, with EVOLVE, not to just toot my own horn, but I feel as if though I reached the top percentile for talent on the roster and I prefer to be on the bottom, because it gives me a place to actually grow, and people to learn from. If I have no, I guess, someone to aspire to be working with, or in a program with, or learning from, then I want to go somewhere else.” 

Ethan Page on his recent frustrations: “A big thing for us was starting and stopping, because of the work visa and stuff like that, because technically I have already been through over a full year of being a contracted talent with Impact, and that was after I started doing the Chandler Park stuff. But getting the actual work visa approved and legally being able to work into America, when that happened was pretty much just before Bound For Glory, when I re-debuted with Matt Sydal. So I almost spent an entire year essentially just waiting for paperwork to be able to work for the company.” 

Ethan Page on getting more time to wrestle in the last year: “I know what I bring to the table, and I don’t want to knock myself, but my wrestling is maybe second tier to storytelling or cutting a promo, so it’s super-strange for me that the last year has been spent just being given time to solely wrestle, because they know I’ll have a good match. It’s not been me for the last 12 years of my career, but I’ll take it as a compliment.” 

Page on Impact’s booking of him: “I honestly think (the IMPACT writers) have a checklist that they need to make sure that they get taken care of. So I guess Moose’s name or Eddie Edwards’ name will be checked off before Ethan Page’s is, and by the time they get to my name, maybe there’s no time left in the show. I don’t know. They’re definitely open to actually sitting and talking to talent, which is important to me. At least I get my voice heard or someone will pick up the phone when I call.”
