The North on their biggest challenge in IMPACT Wrestling
Josh Alexander and Ethan Page of The North talked about their biggest challenge in IMPACT Wrestling. Josh Alexander mentioned how The Motor City Machine Guns were their biggest challenge in IMPACT.
Josh Alexander: “I think the logical answer is the Motor City Machine Guns were biggest challenge today. They were the ones that, you know, took the Tag Team Championships off of us; but we were both probably have different answers for this. I know from the second we started at IMPACT because we were a tag team. He did sell that sales pitch to me like eight or nine years ago. Now that we came in prepared and ready to make a name for ourselves as a tag team. We didn't have to find their feet and find you know, our chemistry in Impact. When we showed up from day one, we are a well-oiled machine and that work to our benefit. So most of the tag teams we got the face. Yeah, they were good. They're great. Impact has a great tag team division, but I don't think they were as much of a challenge for us to say like that coming out of the gate. Which is why we had so much success”.
Ethan Page, on the other hand, said that he was the most embarrassed by their defeat to The Motor City Machine Guns, as he felt that their toughest challenge before had been to find people at their skill level.
Page went on to add that in IMPACT Wrestling, when he teamed with Josh Alexander, they found their chemistry to be unmatched.
Ethan Page: “I was literally going to say the toughest challenge for us was finding people with the same skill level. I mean, not to sound like a dick, but we keep making sure that it's like when we came together for eight years before we started teaming on Impact Wrestling. So like, the chemistry we have is unmatched. Like we did a tale of the tape for our match with Motor City Machine Guns and the list of accolades we had matched to theirs and we'd only been in the company for a year. So the history we have as a team is unmatched and that's why I think, like he said, the toughest challenge for us was the Motor City Machine. We probably just didn't take it as serious as we should have which is embarrassing. So let's talk about something else”.Published 14 Oct 2020, 18:07 IST
