Current TNA star Ethan Carter III recently spoke with Ryan Rider of Main Event Radio. Check out the highlights down below:
Leaving WWE and joining TNA: An opportunity is all I need. If I’m given an inch, I’ll take a mile. I was given more than an inch and I’ll be taking more than a mile. People that were over in the company [TNA] were very fond of my work that was seen, more-so than the people that were working for the company I worked for prior [WWE]. They were very interested in having me and I was very interested in going there and proving myself. I think it was a match made in heaven.
His thoughts on his character: The ability to believe who I am and what I’m doing, and I believe that is what makes a character stand out or makes it succeed or fail. Because it’s an extension of myself.
What was it like working with Kurt Angle: EC3 would like to believe that he has personally retired Kurt Angle. He is one of the best of all-time and it is an amazing opportunity to be in the ring with him. To be able to crash the Hall of Fame ceremony. As far as his return to the ring, I cannot wait. At Lockdown I talked about how that is my dream match and in reality it is my dream match and I can’t wait to have it.
His thoughts on working with “The Icon” Sting: As a young little Carter growing up in the little Carter household, Sting was a guy I looked up to. The ultimate babyface, many years of just watching him. When that opportunity came about to stand toe-to-toe with him was awesome. As far as our promos to each other, me being able to talk and interact at the level with one of the top guys ever. I wish we had more time in the ring to be honest. I’d love to tangle with him one more time. I got two pinfalls, two of the most devastating schoolboys you’ll ever see. Do not turn your back to me, because I will pin you.
