Ethan Page Felt Editing Of Karate Man Segment At IMPACT Hard To Kill Was "Hot Garbage"

Ethan Page has a message for his fans... from the afterlife.

On January 16, Ethan Page had his heart ripped out by Karate Man on IMPACT Wrestling's Hard To Kill PPV event. Page, however, who is no longer with the promotion, was embarrassed by how lazily the segment was edited, forcing it to be a joke.

Posting from his personal Facebook account into the Major Wrestling Figures Podcast group, the former IMPACT World Tag Team Champion had this to say:

"from the afterlife

I'm going to take a full blown break from social media.

I'll be staying active on my personal Patreon as much as I can & probably in this group too cuz I love the fig life & u guys. Xoxox.

But man .... last night sucked.

I'm so embarrassed with how IMPACT! lazily edited that segment last night & forced it to be a joke. I felt the thought of the same guys fighting eachother was comedy enough & the more serious we took it the better the reaction would be. But cuz I left the company, they lied to my face & just did what they wanted the whole time.

I'm sorry if any of my fans paid for that PPV & felt cheated. I honestly feel the free version I gave away was made with more love, care & attention to detail. Sadly I have no control over the creative or final product & the editor refused to send it to me before hand .... so I saw it live with you guys & was surrounded by family. All scratching their heads at that high school project level delivery on a PPV.

I pray ppl know I didn't edit that hot garbage. I actually begged IMPACT! Not to even have Karate man on tv. I only wanted it for my YouTube channel. But ... we don't write the shows. We just get the scripts & do our best. Idk what else to say.

Breaks my heart this company refuses to respect its talent or it's fan base on a regular basis.

I tried."

Last week, Fightful Select reported that Page actually completed his duties with the company back in November, even though his contract was up at the turn of the year. Still, he promoted and helped with the build to Hard To Kill, even though his deal had expired.
