On moving to the United States from Canada:

“Dude you were such a help with that too. Two Canadian boys hanging out in Vegas talking about stuff, that is just amazing! I’ve only been here for a few months, but the opportunities that I have had and the change of schedule, it has done wonders in the short term, I can’t wait to see what it will do in the long term.”

On travel issues possibly preventing wrestling: 

“Oh 100%. That was when I reached out to you on WrestleMania weekend in Tampa and I was meant to do The Body Guy Extravaganza. I was like well I can try and honor this commitment I gave to the fans, I ended up doing the voiceover for the cartoon, and that really put my YouTube channel onto a different platform. People now realize, I guess, were willing to work with me on these wacky projects. It kind of gave fans a new level of trust on this guy is going to go above and beyond. That was when I started to notice the channel grow.” 

On being a part of AEW:

“I was literally just talking to Hornswoggle in the car last week about these pinch me moments. Maybe that tag match against Darby and Sting, which was Sting’s first match after the pandemic, that was one of the moments. But also, wrestling against a fellow Canadian Chris Jericho in front of 22,000, and winning, I can’t believe that. Honestly, jit all happens so fast that this is the thought I have after. All I am trying to do is knock it out of the park and not waste an opportunity. Afterwards I will be like oh that was cool.”

On Dan Lambert:

“Honestly, the amount of people he has had us rub shoulders with, the connections, and the heat he gets. People don’t like him, but I am noticing lately that people are turning a corner on Dynamite Dan. I think it is because they understand the fact that he is a world class entertainer and performer. He is knocking it out of the park every single week. Us as a unit, I don’t think there has been a point where people have been like well that sucks. Whether it is 60 to 90 seconds, we make sure that we maximise our seconds. I have noticed that we are on TV every week and people don’t really notice the length, they just remember that they got to see us.”

On fans getting Ethan Page tattoos:

“A guy got ‘Tight Tits’ tattooed on his calf, so that’s there forever. But that’s not the first, a guy literally got my face tattooed on him. It kind of looked like Eddie Guerrero, but he told me that it was me so I will take it.”

On his “Tightest Tits In The Game” promo:

“So I am all about wordplay. Things that sound good and shock value to stand out. My social media has always been like well what will get a laugh, a like or an interaction. So I am there like well why do women only get to talk about tits. I’ve got tits too and they are the tightest in the game. I got the best smile and the tightest tits in the game, “All Ego” Ethan Page.”

On the response:

“I just walked past everyone. I’m just so glad that it happened on Dynamite where it was live. [Chris asks if he ran it by anyone.] No, could you imagine? “So Tony I was thinking that tonight I was going to talk about my tits.” I could get this all approved, but people don’t understand the delivery or the context, it might get shot down. I know that we won’t get taken off of the air for it, but someone might say ‘You’re going to say what?! No no no, we are going to take that out.’”

On his future goals:

“As long as I am in a better position than I am now. It’s not that I am not about chasing titles or main events, it’s just that I understand how the business works a lot more now in my old age. I started this very young and I have been doing this for 16 years. My mindset has changed, as long as I am on an upward trajectory, I am happy.”  

On possibly not making it as a wrestler:

“Oh yeah many times. Just the fact that when I am flying home I am staying in America, that blows my mind. A company values me that they will sort out my paperwork and allow me to live here with my family. I thought it would happen before my family, maybe I am a greedy dude that wants the family and the dream. But everything happens for a reason, why tempt fate?”

On AEW titles:

“I would love that of course, but I won’t hang my hat on that. My goals have changed where I want to work for a long time, but I don’t want to be in the ring for a long time. I want to leave a legacy in wrestling that has a large enough connection so that when I am at conventions in my 50s or 60s fans that grew up watching me perform have that connection with me and in pop culture. For me, to retire and sit at home, I don’t think that is going to be me. Maybe as a producer to help people with their promotions or something.”     

On who Ethan Page looks to for advice:

“Oh man there are so many options. I love talking to Jerry Lynn and I love talking to Arn Anderson. I love talking to Dean Malenko, these guys have a wealth of knowledge and have helped some of the biggest stars in professional wrestling. Jim Ross too, the guy that signed The Rock. If these are the footsteps I am trying to follow, why not go to the route of everything. These guys have moulded me without knowing it and have made me apply things without knowing it, why not give it a shot?”

On what Ethan Page is grateful for:

“My wife, my son and my daughter as one, family is two and that I am in AEW.”
