Josh Alexander On Reunion With Ethan Page: A Rivalry Is Inevitable
A feud between the best friends looks likely
Ethan Page and Josh Alexander's careers have been entwined since they first started teaming together in 2010. The pair initially fought alongside each other from 2010 until 2015 as Monster Mafia and they reunited four years later in IMPACT Wrestling as The North.
The tag team would make history in IMPACT but they split up again shortly before Ethan Page's departure from the company in late 2020. Fans are hoping The North will eventually reform, though, whether that be in All Elite Wrestling or inside the IMPACT Zone.
Alexander was asked about a reunion with Page while speaking to Cageside Seats and The Walking Weapon admitted a rivalry between the best friends is inevitable.
"I think it would begin as a reunion because there's a bunch of dream matches on the table that I think need to happen for the sake of the wrestling community and what we could do as a tag team. But I think inevitably it ends up in a rivalry because we're two contrasting individuals. I think when you put those two things together, it creates magic. So I think it's inevitable. But who knows? Never say never, right?" Alexander said.
The X-Division Champion also heaped praise on his former tag team partner, adding: "Ethan is one of the most mature, selfless, funny individuals I've ever met in my life. If he loves you, he loves you, and he would give you the shirt off his back any day of the week.
"He was invaluable in helping me in my career. He was the guy that gave me the confidence I always needed. He was the one telling me that - even though I wasn't getting the notoriety for stealing the show and all these independent matches - that I did deserve all this praise and I should keep going and I should keep pushing. He was the one that when I wanted to give up, just pushed me to keep going. 'All Ego' is a moniker, but his confidence and his ability to instill that in other people is something that I think is his best trait."
