ROH star Adam “Hangman” Page recently spoke with CBS Local out of Chicago and below are some interview highlights.
It has been reported that everybody’s contracts are coming up at the end of the year or shortly thereafter and you collectively have decided to take whatever the next step will be together as a unit. That is very unique. Not just in wrestling, but in life in general. How did you guys come to that conclusion?
I think as a collective, as a group, we have been able to change wrestling. We were able to … I mean this wasn’t my money. I didn’t self-finance All-In, but my friends were able to self-finance and sell out a show that had over 11,000 people in attendance. I don’t even know what the numbers were who watched it from home. It is something that’s just absolutely unheard of. And it’s something that we all did together.
I think, as a group, we are really on to something, and I think we wanna continue this. It would be a real disservice to everyone who has supported us and got us to this point if we were to abandon what we’ve built. It certainly doesn’t mean it can’t evolve and change, and it should, and it will. But I feel like we have too much of a good thing going to try to abandon it.
And we all know that collectively we have more leverage than we ever had. More than anyone else has had in a very long time.
Is the next stop then WWE? Are you guys headed for NXT? It sounds to me like you kind of just answered that question in that you don’t want to abandon what you guys have already built. Is that pretty much kind of how you guys are feeling right now?
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.
