Ethan Page WINCLY Podcast Highlights
Impact Wrestling star “All Ego” Ethan Page was on the WINCLY podcast. Here are some highlights from WINC.
On his relationship with the Impact creative team and what inspired him to get into better shape-
“It’s getting better and better every taping because I think they’re getting more comfortable with me and understanding my skill set and where I would thrive”. “I think that was a big change in these past tapings again, is getting that mic live in front of a crowd and having a segment with Rob Van Dam. Getting to show a little bit more of my character instead of just wrestling in matches that, in my opinion, were good but were essentially just wrestling for wrestling.”
“Don Callis made a joke this weekend saying, ‘Get in shape or get a singlet.’ They assumed that even though I’d get in shape, that I’d be getting a singlet [laughs], before adding that seeing how stupid a singlet looked was more than enough inspiration.
“So, when you gave me the ultimatum, I was like, it’s now or never man. I need to fix this.”
“I was personally in my career that I wasn’t satisfied in. I knew it was the one thing that would hold be back eventually, so I just decided to go for it and make the changes needed. Now, here we are”.
“It’s giving me a confidence that I can’t really explain to you”. It’s translated to my wrestling, to my promos, to meet-and-greets, to autograph signings and appearances. It’s made my life completely better. It’s made traveling better. It’s made sleeping better. It’s definitely improved my personal life too so it was something that needed to happen. But I’m very happy it did.”
On the transition to Impact from the Indies-
“I’ve enjoyed it. It’s been challenging in a sense of figuring out different ways to work within the guidelines of a TV show with times and stuff like that. Within the last year, I’ve gotten really comfortable with that. These past tapings in Toronto I’ve been given great opportunities to hold the mic live in front of an audience which is a thing that I’ve wanted to do since signing with Impact,” said Page.
“I’ve had my goals set out and now they’re slowly coming into fruition. I’ve enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next.”
“Although [Impact’s] taped, everything is essentially live-to-taped, so you want to make sure you’re not taking away from the rest of the show… Even on the indies, I’ve been forcing refs to give me time cues just so I get the muscle memory of it. I’m bettering myself for my employer.”
