EC3 on "blind allegiance" to WWE:

“There was I guess a blind allegiance to my corporate employer at the time and there was probably feigning of happiness because I was in theory living my dream, so to speak,” he tells Cageside Seats’ Shakiel Mahjouri. “With Impact, getting the opportunity, becoming the world champion, becoming a mainstay and a top name there. Going to NXT... having fun, having a good run until the eventual hellish landscape callup.”

EC3 on being "a good soldier" for WWE:

“There was happiness and I don’t want to say purpose because that’s what I’m going for now, but there was a sense of wellbeing that I was doing the right things. But when you do the right things — this is something I often tell younger talent — when you’re doing the right things, when you’re a good soldier, you’re gonna be the first in line to get shot. So being a good soldier for that company, they had no problem shooting me. Frontlines and that’s fine, that’s okay. As a person, as a character, we all know the best wrestling characters are extensions of their real-life personality.”
