EC3 is coming to NWA.
Following his WWE release in April 2020, EC3 began to control his narrative, eventually launching his own promotion Control Your Narrative. He has also competed for IMPACT Wrestling and Ring of Honor. Now, he's coming to NWA for NWA 74.
Speaking on the NWA podcast, EC3 explained his decision to compete for the NWA and the fans saying he's no longer "controlling his narrative" now that he's part of a bigger promotion.
"I never said I'm not a hypocrite. When I talk about three-letter brands, I actually became one when I was rallying against them. I'm a liar, I'm full of shit. Who cares. The narrative is not controlled, per se, because what I really believe with comments and social media and dopamine hits and quick responses, oftentimes, it's a vocal minority, to say the least. Who is boldly watching, without their finger on the button commenting, is silent. People that are silent, don't want to be silent anymore. What I'm realizing in wrestling and in the industry, there is more of us than them," he said.
EC3 continued, explaining how he and Billy Corgan view things the same.
"Your President [Billy Corgan] and I are very like-minded, we're both Pisces and we share the same birthday, so we're both masterminds of creative ingenuity. We also see the landscape of wrestling and how it's changed and the microcosm of one sect of fans have totally and completely foregone the millions upon millions that watched in years past. Trying to reach out to them and provide them with something of context and substance and character and story," he said.
EC3 is set to take on Mims at night one of NWA 74.
