EC3 mentions possibility of a program with former AEW Champion Jon Moxley after their failed storyline within the confines of the WWE.
EC3 had his wings cut in the WWE right from the start. Put in an angle with Jon Moxley, who was on his way out, the fans saw the obvious burial and rejected EC3. He floundered in the WWE for the rest of his run before making his way back to Impact Wrestling.
The former 2-time TNA Champion now plies his trade for Ring of Honor. Moxley on the other hand left for AEW where he became the AEW Champion. The two have charted different paths for themselves. However, EC3 envisions working with Moxley again and he already has a story ready.
EC3 mentions possibility of a program with Jon Moxley
“Seeing that, the mention of that means there’s a wide open facility to tell an amazing story with him down the road that is real, resonates, emotional, has moments,” EC3 told Fightful. “In theory an EC3—deranged, shaved head, psycho boy—who’s lost it all can very well blame Jon for everything he experienced because of his deciding to leave the company, of his deciding to talk about me outside of it.
“If that means we wind up rolling around in glass and barbed wire and throwing each other off things and just beating the living shit out of each other for the entire world to see, hopefully in a packed arena someday, that’s really cool,”
EC3 also recalled how he and Moxley called an audible during a house show because of the crowd reaction.
“We had matches on the live events, I think they were second on the card, they were good solid matches. I was the ‘protagonist,’ he was the ‘antagonist’. But, he’s had a seven year run of incredible work that built his name up with a very loyal audience. I was a new guy in yellow trunks with a muscular physique that people were like, ‘I don’t want to see you. Yay him. Boo this new guy.’ That makes sense. I would do the same,” EC3 said.
“I believe on the third match of that loop we had, we’re in the middle of the match and they’re cheering him, booing me,” he continued. “We kind of called the audible out there like, ‘Let me take over as the aggressor and the villain in this scenario and let’s give them what they want. You being cheered.’ We pulled it, did it in the middle of it. That’s calling it on the fly, That’s reading the audience. That’s what pros do.
“I guess it wasn’t well received by somebody in charge or misconstrued up the chain and the rest is history. But, yeah, it’s still a good match. I just showed why I should be a bad guy in this scenario and he showed, ‘This is why I fight’. It was cool. The live audience reacted accordingly. Which I think is the point of what we do.”
