EC3 – ‘Tyrus Did Me A Huge Favor By Passing Me The NWA Torch’


EC3 defeated Tyrus to win the NWA Worlds Championship at the NWA 75 pay-per-view event last year.

On a recent edition of the “Insight” podcast, EC3 discussed being Tyrus’ final opponent, their NWA 75 match, and more.

The two faced off at NWA 75 in August 2023 for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship. EC3 dethroned Tyrus and the latter retired from the ring as part of the stipulation.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On being Tyrus’ final opponent: “He did me a huge favor. Passing that torch, his career, bestowing me to be the one to take him out, which I will one day bestow on somebody, and that’s how we grow the business.”

On Tyrus getting criticism from wrestling fans: “Because he’s in a political atmosphere, so he’s going to alienate 50% of the people and partly because he’s been around for a while.”

On his match with Tyrus: “That match was one of my favorites but by no means is it a quote ‘good wrestling match.’ But what I wanted it to be was a Greek tragedy, and I think I accomplished that.”
