EC3 recently spoke about CYN and why it collapsed, as well as his idea for the “Great Rebrand.”
Kicking off with a string of live events, EC3 founded the Control Your Narrative promotion, however, things would go down hill when both Killer Kross (now Karrian Kross) and Adam Scherr both made their comebacks to World Wrestling Entertainment — both Kross and Scherr were big players at the start of CYN. Following Scherr leaving, CYN made it clear that the future was cloudy in an announcement. Since that time, CYN members have featured on NWA with EC3.
EC3 Plays Fact Checker
During an interview with WrestleZone’s Bill Pritchard, EC3 spoke about his views on CYN and the bumps in the road the promotion has squared off against. He mentioned that his views for the company got corrupted and lost, partly connected to the streaming deal, among other processes.
“Control Your Narrative, my idea and presentation through Free The Narrative and what it was going to become got lost, lost in a disarray of misinformation and unnecessary online banter. My vision was been corrupted, and that is because I allowed my vision to be in the hands of honestly other people at times.
I too may have been blinded and corrupted by the fact that, with what we had, that maybe something, we could expedite the process. I never wanted to be a promotion or the three-letter brand, but then all of a sudden, we kind of were positioned as one due to a streaming television deal and a possibility of live tours and things like that. But it all got lost in the concept and the idea.”
EC3 also spoke about the “Great Rebrand” and how it will give CYN an essential reset.
“The Great Rebrand is basically, I don’t know, people say the great reset, so I thought it’d be funny to say the Great Rebrand. But at the same time, if my vision initially didn’t work, it’s my vision and my responsibility and my accountability and all eyes on me. So what I did, I don’t feel is gonna work properly.
What I’m going to do, with a clear vision and the experience behind it? That is in fact the Great Rebrand. It might not be so great as far as visual and a different concept, but it’s bringing true intention to what I wanted to do and seeing it through.”
