EC3 Wants ‘The Narrative’ To Be Alternate Content To Wrestling, But Still In The Same Realm


EC3 says he can see The Narrative potentially living on in many ways, but the most important thing to remember is that it all started by taking a chance and being creative.


EC3 recently spoke with WrestleZone about Free The Narrative, which features his fight with Matt Cardona. The current Ring Of Honor star explained how far ‘The Narrative’ could go and why it started in the first place.


“It’s broad and it’s bold and where do I want to take it is a very interesting question and it’s one that I don’t have an answer for because I feel like the Joker, I’m just doing things and seeing what happens and like I don’t know why. In a broad sense, in a wrestling sense, I want it to be alternate content to what’s happening in the wrestling world. We all know all these promotions exist, we all know who all these wrestlers are, they all have interactions,” he explained, “but just because they’re all separated by different three-letter brands, they don’t necessarily mingle and everything has to be promotion-based.


“I want it to be somewhere people can come and experiment, create themselves, destroy their past, do something new, be different, alternate content for wrestling that exists in the realm of wrestling but doesn’t affect anything that happens with a major promotion. So, it’s pretty much a creative form but when you think bigger and bolder, from some of the feedback that I got,” he noted, “it seems to play to the mainstream a lot and make a lot of mainstream emotions and people who aren’t necessarily ‘wrestling fans’ watching it and being affected by the stories emotionally.”


EC3 said he could see it taking the form of an episodic series, but regardless of how it continues, he set out to do something different and met that goal.


“We went out there, created, did something different. This is a new world and circumstances provided us time to do something. You could sit at home and wait for this pandemic to be over and live in fear,” he noted, “or you can make something out of the time that you had and just do something and I was sick of sitting around, so I did something.”
