Scorpio Sky Talks AEW Singles Run, Teaming With Ethan Page
It’s been a busy 2021 for the former AEW Tag Champion
2021 has so far been good for Scorpio Sky. After leaving long-term partners Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian in SCU, Sky has forged his own path, all starting with his Face of the Revolution ladder match win at AEW: Revolution in March.
Speaking with the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, Sky opened up on his ladder match win, and how he was ready to step up:
“It’s about time [Sky said about AEW having faith in him to win ladder match at Revolution]. You know, I’m kind of done being humble, and I think it’s time for people to stop ignoring and pretending like I’m not one of the best guys in the entire company, you know what I mean? I honestly say that. I’ve got potential to be top guy, main event-caliber performer and there aren’t a lot of guys on the roster that can hang with me or can outperform me and I don’t really care if people knock me for saying that. I used to not say things like that because I didn’t wanna put myself out there but now, I don’t really give a s***. I’m just gonna tell it like it is and I’m one of the best, so to be in that spot, I deserve it so there’s no ifs, ands or buts about it.”
Eyebrows were raised by AEW fans when shortly after breaking free and starting his solo run, Sky was paired with Ethan Page. Sky too was taken aback by this pairing, but feels it is going well thus far:
“You know, at first I was a little bit like, not hesitant but, a little curious as to where this was going to go but working with Ethan has actually been really, really good.
“It’s something different, it’s something fresh, I can bring a little bit of my personality out more than before and we have this weird chemistry that actually works and people are getting behind it and they like it and I didn’t even know Ethan that well when we first started working together but, everything is clicking on all cylinders and it’s working out tremendously I think. I prefer being the bad guy than being the good guy. It’s a lot easier to make people dislike you than like you. Naturally, I don’t worry too much about making sure everybody in the room likes me. I just am who I am.”
