Ethan Page has issued a statement apologizing for his company hiring those who have been accused of a number of transgressions in the past week.
Page, who is one-half of IMPACT World Tag Team Champions The North, runs the Alpha-1 Wrestling promotion and has posted a statement on behalf of the promotion, which can be seen below. In that statement, Page said he is embarrassed that those who have been accused for a number of things, including abuse and sexual assault, were brought in for Alpha-1 Wrestling events and promises to do everything he can to make sure future events are safe for everyone.
I'd like to apologize to our fans for hiring some of the talents being outted for their terrible acts during the #SpeakingOut movement. I'm embarrassed and ashamed to have brought such untrustworthy & vile "talents" to our events & around the ppl I care most about.
My family runs the front door, locker room & meet & greets. My closest friends & staff bring their wives, girlfriends & children to my events. My hometown fans mean the world to me. So these past few days have broke my heart.
I take enormous pride in keeping our events safe for not only fans but staff as well & I promise to anyone reading this I'll continue to do so. If you hear anything, see anything or know anything you think can help me keep my promise, I'm always available at: ethanpage @ live .ca
I am truly Sorry
I’m very sorry guys.— Ethan Page played by Julian (@OfficialEGO) June 22, 2020
I’m also sorry it took me this long to know what to even say.
I personally reached out to the @A1Wrestling yesterday to apologize as well.
I can’t express my gratitude enough to the people taking the very brave steps to make wrestling a better place. https://t.co/M9en9BOWUG
