Ethan Page On Having Creative Freedom In AEW: I Can Finally Be The ‘All Ego’ Ethan Page I’ve Always Wanted To Be
It’s safe to say that Ethan Page is enjoying his new home in All Elite Wrestling.
During a recent appearance on “Insight With Chris Van Vliet”, Page explained that he’s truly living the dream.
“I’m still on this weird high of not even being able to comprehend that I’ve finally achieved my dream,” said Page. “Because it’s like, you’re one step closer, one step closer, one step closer, I’ve never actually made it to the point that I’ve envisioned from when I was a kid. So it’s like, I don’t even know how to like, digest it or comprehend that it’s happened.”
“All Ego” also explained why having creative freedom, a staple of All Elite Wrestling, is so important to him.
“I consider myself to be a pro wrestling traditionalist and purist, when it comes to how I perform and how I execute my matches or my promos or my character,” said Page. “But at the end of the day, I want to be credited for the work that I put into this and the effort that I out into this. And my career is reaching 15, 16 years, I think, I started in 2006.
“There’s been so many instances where I did not have a say in my name, in my character, in the way I was represented or presented. And it’s amazing, now being in AEW, the creative freedom and I guess trust that they give their talent to kind of let them do what they want and play the characters that they want. So I can fully now be the Ethan Page, the ‘All Ego’ Ethan Page that I’ve always wanted to be, so it’s cool.”
