At IMPACT Wrestling Hard To Kill, The Karate Man murdered Ethan Page. The former IMPACT Wrestling World Tag Team Champion had his heart ripped out at the end of the match. Page has taken to social media to express his disappointment with the match. In a lengthy post on his personal Facebook account, Page accused IMPACT Wrestling of lying to him, and he also apologized to the fans. Here’s the full post, which was on The Major Wrestling Figure Podcast Patreon-Exclusive Facebook page.
“‘From the afterlife
I’m going to take a full blown break from social media.
I’ll be staying active on my personal Patreon as much as I can & probably in this group too cuz I love the fig life & u guys. Xoxox.
But man …. last night sucked.
I’m so embarrassed with how IMPACT! lazily edited that segment last night & forced it to be a joke. I felt the thought of the same guys fighting each other was comedy enough & the more serious we took it the better the reaction would be. But cuz I left the company, they lied to my face & just did what they wanted the whole time.
I’m sorry if any of my fans paid for that PPV & felt cheated. I honestly feel the free version I gave away was made with more love, care & attention to detail. Sadly I have no control over the creative or final product & the editor refused to send it to me before hand …. so I saw it live with you guys & was surrounded by family. All scratching their heads at that high school project level delivery on a PPV.
I pray ppl know I didn’t edit that hot garbage. I actually begged IMPACT! Not to even have Karate man on tv. I only wanted it for my YouTube channel. But … we don’t write the shows. We just get the scripts & do our best. Idk what else to say.
Breaks my heart this company refuses to respect its talent or it’s fan base on a regular basis.
Oh well! Life goes on. That door is closed. Now let’s focus on what’s next.”
It’s worth noting that Page is now a free agent, as his contract with IMPACT Wrestling expired on January 1, 2021.
