Last night on AEW Dynamite, we saw a brutal main event between Ethan Page & Darby Allin. They are no strangers to absolutely destroying each other, and this Coffin Match was a natural progression of this. Everyone already knew that Darby Allin is a major player for AEW, but last night proved that Ethan Page belongs at this top.
Page Has Proven Himself In AEW Through The Feud With Darby Allin
Ethan Page has worked hard to prove himself as a worthy addition to AEW since his debut. He entered the company in the Face of The Revolution ladder match at Revolution 2021, and that debut was very underwhelming to many fans. Page was mainly known as a tag team specialist in Impact Wrestling alongside Josh Alexander, and Page quickly being lumped in with Scorpio Sky as a tag team didn’t help this.
However, following the tag team match against Darby Allin & Sting, fans really started to see that there was something more with Page. Playing on the deep history between Allin & Page was a great way to show him as more than a tag team wrestler. Last night in the Coffin Match, he held his own in the main event of a major show. Page has proven to be a great storyteller, while also showing that he can hang in the ring.
Jim Ross Claims Ethan Page Is On His Way To Being A Major Player In AEW
Helping out the case of Page, he’s now been heavily praised by Jim Ross himself. On a recent episode of the Grillin’ JR podcast, he’d say the following.
“Darby is one of my favorites. He’s one of my favorites to talk to. Darby is very creative. He comes up with a lot of his own material, shall we say. He’s one of our homegrown guys that we take pride in; he and Jungle Boy Jack Perry, for example. Nobody should sleep on Ethan Page. He’s going to be a big-time player. He’s doing really well.”
He’d go on to say that Page has the look, skills, attitude and smarts to reach the top of AEW. Page so far hasn’t gotten any championship shots in AEW, but it wouldn’t be hard to see him becoming a TNT Champion or even a potential AEW World Champion if he plays his cards right.
