Ethan Page Recalls Initially Thinking Call About Joining WWE Wasn’t Real

Ethan Page details how his move to WWE started with a phone call that he didn’t think was real.

Ethan Page parted ways with AEW/ROH and shocked wrestling fans by making a surprise appearance on the May 28 episode of WWE NXT. There, he attacked NXT Champion Trick Williams.

Speaking on Talk’n Shop, Ethan Page discussed joining WWE and recalled how it started with a random phone call. (H/t Skyar Russell of Fightful for the transcription)

“I ended up being able to leave, thank you for that,” Ethan Page said. “After that, I got a random phone call on a layover and I was like, ‘This is not real.’ They’re like, ‘Yes it is, here’s the offer, does that sound good?’ I was like, ‘Yes’ and they hung up. Then someone else called me right after and they’re like, ‘Did you just speak to so and so?’ Yes. ‘Okay, we’re gonna need this, this, this, this, this, this and then we’ll have everything sent over to you.’ I was like, wait a second, that was a real phone call that just happened?

“It was me flying home from Winnipeg to go work for Sami Callihan in Dayton, Ohio. I had to like fly to Detroit and then pick up my car and drive three hours and I was dreading it. Then I went to do a show and I gotta keep it secret and I got to see all of the boys again before I took off, a bunch of the IMPACT guys were there that I got to see. It was cold and out of nowhere, crazy.”

WrestleZone will have coverage of WWE NXT Heatwave as it airs on July 7.
