At the conclusion of their historic show, the architects of All In proclaimed that they would remain a unit no matter what the future brought. The Elite want to stick together, but where they ultimately wind up is still to be determined.
It’s getting late in the day. Bona fide stars like Marty Scurll and the Young Bucks are only growing in popularity, possessing more negotiating leverage than ever before. It begs the question as to whether an outfit like ROH can really hope to keep them happy with long-term agreements.
One of Bullet Club’s rising stars is Hangman Page, who has become much more recognizable thanks in part to his association with wrestling’s hottest faction. Recently, Chuck Carroll of CBS Sports interviewed Page about his plans, and addressed the elephant in the room, WWE.
When asked if the plan is to go to NXT or WWE‘s main roster, Page said:
“I think what we’ve built is not necessarily bound to where we work. A lot of what we built, and really, I feel like the most feedback that I get is from doing stuff with Being The Elite; which could conceivably happen anywhere. It could happen… You catch my drift. So I don’t want to, at any point, rule anything out. If you kinda catch my drift on that one.”
Does Page have a timetable for a Bullet Club decision?
“No. Not at all. And I think putting time restraints on, ‘I will have made the decision by X time,’ I don’t know if that’s a good move, because things change from day to day, literally. I could give you a lot of examples, but things change day to day. And drawing a line where you think you’ll make a decision one way or the other, I don’t think is really advantageous. I think to just see what happens when it happens and kinda go with your gut as your gut tells you to go with it.”
When all is said and done, what does Hangman Page wish to accomplish in the wrestling business?
“I guess I’ve had a part, I’ve played a part along with the Bucks, and with Cody and Marty and Kenny and everyone else associated with us and changing the wrestling landscape. Changing what it means to be an independent wrestler or changing what business with Ring Of Honor looks like or what New Japan looks like. Or just in general changing what the wrestling business looks like. We sold out a show based on a YouTube show that had no wrestling on it.
“So we’ve been able to kind of change wrestling a little bit, and I want to do more of that. I think more than anything. I want to maybe change the way wrestling works. I feel like for a long time, the past 20 years or so, wrestling has worked as a career for people and in only one way, and in the past few years that has started to open up. And I’m not claiming that as because of something I’ve done, but I don’t think I’ve hurt that either. And I wanna continue to make that a reality for people.”
