It was previously reported that AEW star Joey Janela and IMPACT Wrestling’s Ethan Page managed to squash their beef at the GCW Collective event over the weekend. However, it appears as if Page didn’t manage to resolve all of his issues at the show.
Fightful Select‘s Sean Ross Sapp is reporting that Ethan Page (part of The North in IMPACT Wrestling) and GCW promoter Brett Lauderdale had a “heated exchange” at a show over the weekend. Here’s exactly what Sapp had to say on the matter:
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, who both confirmed that it happened.
Speaking of Ethan Page, WrestleTalk reported several weeks ago that his IMPACT Wrestling deal is expected to expire in December 2019. While there is no word on whether or not he’s going to extend his stay with IMPACT, we were told that AEW have been interested in bringing him in for some time.
