Ethan Page talks about which Impact Wrestling Stars he was a fan

Ethan Page made his Impact Wrestling debut on the November 30 episode of Impact, portraying a character named Chandler Park, who is the storyline cousin of Joseph Park. On the January 4, 2018 episode of Impact, Park defeated Jon Bolen in his first match with the company.

On the January 18 episode of Impact, after being destroyed by Kongo Kong as a part of Kong's feud with Abyss, Page would be removed from TV. Now using Ethan Page ring name and gimmick, he returned on the October 4 episode of Impact by interfering in a match between Rich Swann and Matt Sydal, costing Swann the match and aligning himself with Sydal, re-establishing himself as a heel.

On the October 16 episode of Impact, Page made his in-ring debut, where he defeated Trevor Lee. At Bound for Glory, Page and Sydal lost to Swann and Willie Mack. In early 2019, Matt Sydal parted ways with Impact Wrestling, thus ending their alliance.

On the April 12 episode of Impact, Page and Josh Alexander debuted as The North, as they defeated El Reverso and Sheldon Jean. On July 5 at the Bash at the Brewery event, The North defeated The Latin American Xchange (Ortiz and Santana) to win the Impact World Tag Team Championship for the first time.

During a long interview with Chris Van Vliet, Page spoke about which Impact Wrestling Stars he was a fan: “I started watching just after they finished their weekly PPVs and went to their big 3-hour PPVs. So the Jeff Hardys, the Christian Cages, and then obviously when Kurt Angle came but Abyss was always one of my favorites.

As an original character, I always wanted to see him go on and wrestle guys like Kane and The Undertaker. He was always having crazy matches and they were doing things that WWE at the time wasn’t doing like with the thumbtacks and barbed wire and stuff like that. They would go a step further. I don’t know, maybe I had that blood lust but I was a huge fan of Abyss”.
