In a new interview with Fightful, All Elite Wrestling Superstar Adam Page discusses the impact AEW has already had on what existing companies offer incoming or re-signing talents, as well as his take on offers extended to him:
“It’d be a lie if I said I didn’t consider anything. Any type of offer put on the table is something I took a lot of time and thought about it. No matter what you do, there’s some pros and cons and risks involved. [There are] some risks involved in what we’re doing. We don’t own a wrestling ring yet. I think the opportunity to make All Elite Wrestling happen, make it a success, was the best option for me. I hope that my okaying this along with a few other people can help change what wrestling is for millions of fans and wrestlers. I know of a lot of guys whose offers doubled because there’s somebody else playing ball now. Knowing that I contributed to that in some way was probably the biggest selling point me.”
More money inserted into Pro Wrestling is a good thing for fans, and talent alike. AEW appears to be playing ball in a big way. We will get our first taste of what they’re delivering on May 25 with Double Or Nothing.
