Ex-WWE Star Brutally Attacked At Basketball Game

EC3 has revealed details of a physical altercation he was involved in at a basketball game before his wrestling career took off.



The former WWE superstar, who has since founded his own wrestling promotion Control Your Narrative and has appeared in Ring of Honor and NWA shows, spoke about the incident on The Wrestling Outlaws podcast.

EC3 recalled the night after he was confirmed as a part of WWE, when he was still working at a Cheesecake Factory and not yet a professional wrestler. He confronted a man at a basketball game, which resulted in a physical altercation.

The incident did not deter him from pursuing his wrestling career, however, as he went on to have a successful stint in WWE and has continued to make his mark in the industry since leaving the company.

“I had my WWE tryout before I got signed. But I got signed, and it was the greatest moment of my life. I was working at the Cheesecake Factory and I got the call… The next night I got to a Cav’s game, I’m wearing a LeBron jersey. But I have muscles so I just have the jersey on, not the t-shirt on underneath. Cavs win, I’m in the bathroom, little sauced up. But this guy just kept talking to me… I’m like, ‘Don’t do this.’ I try to leave, I turn around and he’s in my face.

I go into pro wrestling mode for some reason. You’re in a heated angle and you’re in my face before you lock up sometimes the guy is just going to pie-face you. So I pie-face the guy, because I’m still kind of wired as a wrestler from trying out to become a wrestler for a living. So IO pie-face the dude. Next thing you know… boom, I’m punched in the face. I’m like, wait. And then I’m getting tackled.”

He concluded:

“And I’m like, ‘Oh wait, this is real.’ Moral of the story, I give him the toss up. I have some moves on me to toss him off. He’s getting up and I just think of William Regal and I hit him with the running knee to him, boom. Then I got pulled out. Nearly wrestled him but not fully.”
