REVEALED: Why Ethan Page Was Moved To ROH
Reason why Ethan Page was moved to ROH
Ethan Page is set to return to an All Elite Wrestling ring for the first time in nearly four months on the December 9 edition of Collision, with ‘All Ego’ set to wrestle Kenny Omega.
Page’s last AEW match came in August, with Page moving over to Ring of Honor in September 2023. In a new interview with Chris Van Vliet, Page has revealed why he was moved over to ROH:
"If I'm putting something out [on YouTube], it's something that inspired me. And also, I've decided to kind of, once I realised that like the last time we did an interview, I was doing American Top Team stuff, things were going fantastic. Not to say that I'm not happy. I just noticed a change in my career and I realised that I really needed to start focusing on professional wrestling more and dedicating myself to that, which is actually why I requested to do the Ring of Honor stuff because our roster has grown so big that the opportunities to be physically active in the ring come a lot less. And that's just the nature of the beast, Tony wants to have the best wrestlers in the world, and I commend them for it, we have them all. But the matches come less.
“So I wanted to be more active. And as I age, I started to notice that my body was starting to feel a little bit tighter. And when you're not wrestling as often your body is just adjusting differently. So I was like, okay, dude, you're either going to end your career by just getting stagnant and fatter and more depressed. And like, I could have definitely kept continuing to do the YouTube videos and selling ads through an agency and I was doing very well and things were great. But that was kind of my full-time job. And then everything else kind of took a backseat in the trajectory of that, if that makes any sense," Page said.
Page is set to wrestle Tony Nese at ROH Final Battle on December 15 in an "I Quit" Match.
