Game Changer Wrestling presented their Collective series of events this past weekend in Indianapolis The three-day event featured a number of shows which were postponed during Wrestlemania 36 week due to the ongoing health crisis.
Ahead of this weekend’s shows, IMPACT Wrestling star Ethan Page took to Twitter, upset about trading cards using his likeness available for sale during the events. He stated he wasn’t asked and did not approve of his likeness being used on the cards.
He got into a back and fourth with AEW star Joey Janela, in tweets that were later deleted.
Page and Janela reportedly smoothed things over, but Page and GCW promoter Brett Lauderdale did have some heat backstage at the Black Label Pro show on Sunday.
According to Fightful Select (subscription required), Ethan Page and Brett Lauderdale were involved in “a heated verbal exchange” according to several witnesses. Both parties felt “they were owed an apology, neither seemed keen on giving one”. Page reportedly left the event afterwards.
Both parties were contacted by Fightful, confirming the situation did occur. It’s unknown if they have since smoothed things over.
