EC3 wrote that, in expected times like these, genuine, unfiltered emotions arise. These moments are born from the most cherished form of art and physical display we’ve grown to adore- professional wrestling. No blank page or scripted lines guide these emotions; these are real and untamed. In this instant, within these emotions, EC3 has become who he was supposed to be.

EC3 said that he had received an amazing gift- this roster, this company. Another wonderful gift was his opponent, Tyrus. EC3 says that Tyrus generously sacrificed himself to help me become the world’s heavyweight champion. This was EC3’s third world heavyweight championship, but getting to this third win was a path of hardship for him. 

Later, EC3 writes that his past has not been easy for him, and was very tough. He felt broken in body, mind, heart, and emotions. Friendships ended, and relationships shattered. It is the sufferings that enabled EC3 to achieve greatness.

He says that suffering is not about playing the victim or wallowing; it is about conquering, and achieving. Suffering is an important gift because it provides something to push back against, something to strive for.

EC3 ended his speech by saying that he has many reasons to keep fighting as the new NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion.
