EC3 Name Drops Tons Of AEW Talent To Throw Scent Off Impact Return
All signs point to EC3 returning to Impact on July 18 for the Slammiversary PPV. That isn’t stopping EC3 from trying to control the narrative and throw the scent off joining Impact. In EC3’s latest video, he name drops over fifteen references to AEW and even displays their logo in the background.
The speech starts creatively with the early reference, “You feel like you’re left out to hang, man.” EC3 continues with a clearer name-drop, “The state of things has fallen into this dark order.” Then, he goes overboard with cues to Brian Cage, Inner Circle, Best Friends, Young Bucks, Exalted One, Fenix, Jon Moxley, Sonny Kiss, Kenny Omega, the Elite, and AEW. I didn’t pick up the references to Cody Rhodes, SCU, and Jungle Boy on the fist listen. I may have missed one or two more.
Here’s the full transcription courtesy of EC3’s own post on Facebook. I recommend listening to the short video rather than reading. EC3’s passionate delivery isn’t done justice by text alone.
You can spend your life letting the world tell you what to do.
Dictate your path.
Choose your fate.
Do you decide your future or is it chosen for you?
We are in an unprecedented time. From lockdowns, to quarantines, to turmoil in the streets. It’s truly an American nightmare.
From coast to coast, from Maine to SoCal, uncensored chaos and confusion reign. When you go outside it feels like you’re in the jungle...
You fear the revolt is coming for you if you don’t subscribe to the popular opinion, adhere to the group think, you feel like you are left out to hang...
The natural state of things has fallen into this dark order, and you plug away, day after day like a gear in a F’n machine.
Society is BROKEN
These are the times you keep your inner circle small.
You don’t have best friends.
You can only trust yourself.
Age doesn’t matter whether you are an old man or a young buck now is the time For you to speak your truth
you stand tall
rise like a phoenix
carry yourself with moxie
and seal it with a sunny kiss.
These bastards may criticize you, mock you, cancel you hell they might imitate you.
But it’s never the end.
There is never an omega if you are an alpha.
Now, you Think for yourself
Now, you Fight for yourself
Now, you control your narrative
If you don’t, you’re just part of the con.
You are more than elite, you are free.
They have been warned.
EC3 created an interesting way to keep his name in the news, but it seems too obvious of a red herring to join AEW instead of Impact. I’m not biting.
Has EC3 convinced you that his arrival to Impact is not so sure? What odds do you give EC3 of being All Elite in the very near future?
