One-half of The Men of the Year tag-team, “All Ego” Ethan Page, recently spoke with DAE on Demand for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, the AEW star spoke about how he wasn’t making much money during the pandemic, how he created the Karate Man out of necessity and more.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On how he wasn’t making too much money during the pandemic: “If you’re going to go look for one of those matches, make sure it’s mine that I shot and edited on my YouTube page. Check that one out of the two. It was honestly out of necessity. I wasn’t really making that much money during my time during the pandemic, things were rough.”
On how he created the Karate Man out of necessity: “So, I decided to create an alter ego to create a feud with myself so I could have dueling merch and someone would buy a Karate Man shirt or an Ethan Page shirt and pick their favorite. It was more out of survival and that’s when the best ideas come when you need them.”
