EC3 recently spoke with Fightful about his upcoming Magic City Mania Show, where the superstar spoke about recovering from his injury, The K5 Network, and much more.
Check out some of the highlights below:
On his injury:
I’m always training. I train twice a day. I’m jacked and TAN, lean as hell. I look great. I feel fantastic. he stated. I will say that out of all the physical ailments I’ve had in my career—whether it was a torn bicep, torn ACLs, dislocated patella, herniated discs—coming back from this one was one of the hardest things I had to do. Read into that what you will. But, I have gotten through it and I feel good right now. So, we’ll see what the future holds
On the K5 Network:
As far as whatever kept me out. You know, this is the thing about media that I was talking about is who reported that? Nobody asked me. Well, you did, and I didn’t tell you why I was out. I was out and then something reported why I was out. But, then the person that reported it never verified it. I’m very easy to find on Instagram or Twitter or e-mail.

On working on Saturday Morning Slam and not using moves to the head or neck:
I had a great time, First off, I was working Cesaro and he’s one of the best to do it. There’s nothing wrong with having a match that challenges you to not do the things you’re used to doing. Like, I think even in the FCW days we were prepped for it. Not because it was ever the intention that it would go like this, but we would have matches. “Alright, this match you can’t use the ropes.” “This match, no strikes.” “This match, do that.” It just challenges you to do different things and be better. There’s nothing wrong with a challenge and accepting it. If you can’t do something as simple as what they instilled [in] us on Saturday Morning Slam then why you doing this? We’re the best in the world, right? We can pull off anything and change anything and hopefully do it on the fly. So, I enjoyed the challenge. I thought it was cool.
