Ethan Page Speaks About Controversial “Karate Man” Match

AEW star Ethan Page recently appeared on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, where he spoke about the controversial “Karate Man” match from Impact Hard to Kill back in January.

Since the show aired, Page has spoken about how the match that aired on the pay-per-view was completely different to what he had envisioned. Page revealed how he recorded the match, saying:

“So I released my own which I think is better than the one that aired on the PPV. But I just put up a sheet in my basement and filmed myself with an iPhone and then edited it all together. There’s a lot of love and care that went into it. And time spent. And like, trying to find the proper shots and angles that I could do with essentially tablecloth-size green sheets. Because it’s not like a high budget thing whatsoever.

When asked about whether or not he thought the match should have been on pay-per-view, Page simply stated:

“Do I think it ever should’ve made it to national television? Hell no. It was supposed to be a YouTube thing. But you know, we don’t write the shows, we’re just employees.”

Ethan Page’s previously scheduled Coffin Match with Darby Allin was moved from the upcoming AEW Road Rager show, with it seemingly now taking place at Fyter Fest instead.
