The bad news keeps rolling out of the GCW Collective event.
The Collective ended up with several of its performers testing positive for COVID-19, but things got testy on the last day of the event, as reported on Fightful Select:
Regarding Ethan Page and Joey Janela based on their interaction last week on Twitter that Page took exception to, we're told they spoke privately following the incident and made good at the events this past weekend.
While things are now smooth with Ethan Page and Joey Janela it would seem, things are not so well with Page and GCW promoter Brett Lauderdale. According to several witnesses, the two were in a heated verbal exchange Sunday at the Black Label Pro show at the GCW Collective. This stems from Page taking issue that trading cards were produced with his likeness ahead of the shows. We're told that both felt like they were owed an apology, but neither seemed keen on giving one. Page left BLP's event afterwards We aren't sure what exactly was said, but one wrestler there chalked it up to tensions running high after a long week.
We've reached out to both Page and Lauderdale about the situation.
We've heard there were no hard feelings with Deonna Purrazzo pulling out, and she did it becase she would not have had enough time to safely quarantine before Bound For Glory. There was also a risk of her bringing COVID back home, and with her boyfriend (WWE's Steve Cutler) trying to get back on TV, it didn't make sense.
