Former Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion EC3 recently spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News to promote the upcoming Slammiversary pay-per-view event on July 2nd in Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios. EC3 will be facing James Storm at the event. When asked about the match, he said that he has some unresolved issues with Storm. He brought up how he lashed out at him not only verbally but physically with a strap. He thinks that they’re on a collision course.
“I’m not going to sell you that’s it’s going to be an excellent competition,” EC3 said. “It’s going to be an ass-kicking. It’s going to be a drubbing. It’s going to be brutal. It is going to be a beat down. It is going to be a decimation. I will leave James Storm nothing more than a busted up, broken down drunk. I will destroy him. I will tear him apart limb by limb, flesh from him bone until there is nothing left. Not because I want to more so that I need to because he harkens to the past. He is the past. I am the present. I am the future, and I will use James Storm, it’s not personal, as sort of a canvas to paint a masterpiece on. It will not be pretty. It will not be fun. It will be ugly, it will be nasty, and it will leave me victorious.”
Impact Wrestling recently announced that they would be holding a live event on Friday, August 4th in Long Island, NY The Sports Arena. This will be the second live event that the promotion will be holding this year as they will also hold a live event on August 5th at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark, which is the home of Minor League Baseball’s Staten Island Yankees. When asked about the promotion running live events again, he said that he wants to see what’s working outside of the Impact Zone. He brought up that you don’t always know what’s catching on because you’re in front of the same audience and they’ve already seen it. He added, “Going out there in front of different audiences and see what they react to the most tells me what I need to focus on more.”
EC3 also talked about his career, Impact taping in Orlando frequently, and more. You can read the entire interview here.
