Ethan Page was a guest on The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy. Tony Khan has been causing a lot of reactions since AEW's inception. Many criticize him for various things, mostly because of booking. Ethan Page is mad at the fans and can't understand them.
“It’s a really intriguing concept that so many fans that consider themselves die hard fans, and this is no disrespect to them, but they are so caught up and captivated by the inner workings of the business and why things are happening.
They feel like they can book better than the booker who actually runs the show. It’s so crazy now. Wrestling fans feel so entitled, especially the more die-hard, smart fans that are online. They feel entitled like, ‘No, my opinion counts.
You’re wrong and I’m right.’ That’s very strange, but it is what it is. That’s the world we live in today so we just have to learn how to deal with it, but at the end of the day, Tony Khan is the guy flipping the bills.
He makes the decisions. He’s paying everybody, so it’s his decision to make. If he makes it, I support him 100%”. - Ethan Page said, as quoted by pwmania.com
Ethan Page on fans
Page is aware that no matter how long you've been on the scene and what success you've had, there will always be those who will underestimate your success.
Of course, we mean social media fans here. “Also, I’m going to bury myself real quick to kind of help with this argument. I have been on AEW television steady, I would say regularly, for about two years straight.
I still get people tweeting at me, ‘Who?’ So I don’t care how many vignettes you do of this guy (Vikingo) before he has this match, there’s still going to be people who are like, ‘Who the F is this? Why is he on the show? They just want to be those people who make those comments”.
