IMPACT star Ethan Page was recently interviewed by WrestleZone Radio where the current tag team champion talked about his partner Josh Alexander, and how their chemistry was formed from working together in the past. Page reveals that he and Alexander “lit up” when they were told that they’d be working together.
It’s crazy that the first thing we did when Josh signed with IMPACT is team up, especially because they started hyping him up as a singles competitor. I had just wrapped up my stuff with Matt Sydal, and when they told us that we were going to team, we both lit up. We both know what we’re capable of as a team. The weirdest thing is that there are so many people coming up to me at shows saying ‘I can’t believe how good chemistry you guys have, you guys became such a good tag team so fast.’ I’m just thinking, we lucked out because I wasn’t doing anything in the company, Josh needed something to really strap himself to, and we have amazing chemistry from the past and nobody really knows about it. So we were like the luckiest and greatest team of all time.
Page would then address the strange path it took for he and Alexander to both end up in IMPACT, which involved Alexander recovering from a broken neck and dealing with visa issues.
Yeah, it was really cool to win my first belt there with him and for us to pretty much say out loud we would do this as a team. With all the bumps in the road, like him pretty much being banned from America, finding his way to a work visa, recovering from a broken neck surgery. Me exiting EVOLVE and ended up in IMPACT, and IMPACT being the place that offered Josh a contract. It was the weirdest, craziest road, but we ended up literally at the same place at the same time to be able to achieve the goal that we set out so many years ago. It’s pretty cool.
Finally, Page hyped the idea of Willie Mack and current X-Division champion Rich Swann being a suitable team for The North to face.
I think, obviously, a rematch with LAX or a rematch with The Rascalz; both have been really good. But me personally, I’m gonna cross my fingers for Rich Swann and Willie Mack to decide to be a full-time tag team and The North versus those guys, that would be really really good.
