EC3 was released from WWE along with so many others. He wasn’t being used and hasn’t wrestled since September due to concussions. He previously stated that this injury was the hardest he ever had to encounter in his career.
EC3 provided an in-depth character synopsis for himself following his WWE release. He is obviously not giving up as he remains focused on whatever his next steps are. The tweets which followed painted a picture of what he has in mind.
ec3 character synopsis
Created by a perfect storm of frustration, angst, restraint, solitude and the sense of losing everything, the character of ec3 forced himself to consider the inconceivable.
That he was defeated.
ec3 embraces suppressed inhibitions.
Forgoing a persona that has a penchant for the finer things (attire, appearance, possessions) and a welcoming yet always professional personality is an evolution into an uber-mensch in a leather jacket.
With ec3’s evolution comes an all encompassing ideology.
ec3 becomes a walking, talking cultural commentator railing against the numbing confines of post-modern existence.
In his inability to realize his own goals, aspirations, and what he deems his loss, ec3 seeks enlightenment through comeuppance.
Other’s in the WWE Universe (wrestling world) would find ec3’s behavior hypocritical. The negativity ec3 preaches becomes incessant lecturing, and the means of his behavior destructive, borderline obnoxious, and slightly insane Regardless of perception, after a real and tangible story of loss, regret, and sacrifice ec3 embraces and important question
“Would you rather be the Universe’s enemy or nothing at all?”
This is a sad time for a lot of people. All anyone can do is keep their head up, protect themselves, and carry on. Hopefully, things will be much better soon. In the meantime, EC3 will be moving on to his next journey.
