WATCH: EC3 Questions The Narrative Of “Honor” In His ROH TV Debut

Published

on

Just a few days before he battles Moose for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at IMPACT Wrestling’s Bound for Glory pay-per-view, EC3 made his highly anticipated arrival on ROH Wrestling Television.

EC3 put the entire locker room on notice in what has become his trademark style, urging fans to question the “narrative” of Ring of Honor’s past, present and future. We’ve transcribed the entire segment for you below, but you can watch the entire promo at the bottom of the article.


“Is honor real? Because there is no honor in what we do. We’ve allowed ourselves to be controlled our entire lives. Corporations, politicians, media, our thoughts, our believes, even our love has had authority over us. Every day they take from us our freedoms – and every day we lose focus on our greater purpose.

“Is there honor in fighting back? Is there honor in fighting back those that control you, demean you, degrade you, try to cancel you? Is there honor in fighting back for your freedom to act? To think? Freedom to speak and freedom to feel. Is there honor in finding purpose?

“Is there honor in the past? I stand in hallowed halls built by hallowed names. Black hats, and punks with Styles Clashes, submission machines, and dragons with national identity. They were great men, and they built a great house, but men are fallible. Men conform.

“Is there honor in the now? Briscoes, Lethal, Dragon Lee, Rush – these names synonymous with the best wrestling on the planet. Is that a fact… or is that self praise? I’m not here to wrestle. I am here to fight. I am here to seek out the greatest competition this planet knows, and I want to fight them. I want to punch, kick, scratch, claw – I want to bring total freaking war Von Clausewitz style to anybody and everybody.

“Without pain, without sacrifice you have nothing. I am willing to purify myself by pain. I am willing to sacrifice myself on this altar of honor – Ring of Honor. Honor… I will put that name to the test. You have been warned.”

For those curious, Van Clausewitz was a Prussian military theorist credited with conceptualizing the idea of “Absolute War”, which is apparently a whole different category of discussion than “Total War”. We’ll give EC3 a pass this time, as he’s a professional wrestler, not an early 1800s European military general.

Mike Bennett Discusses His Return To Ring Of Honor

Mike Bennett shocked the world this week when he returned to Ring Of Honor, and he recently discussed his decision to return.

Bennett returned this week to help his former ROH tag team partner, Matt Taven from being attacked by Bateman and Vincent, with the former Kingdom members hugging at the end of the show.


Bennett then sat down with Taven to discuss exactly why he has chosen to come back to Ring Of Honor.

“Coming back, I’ve noticed that I’m a big fan of the sport of professional wrestling. I’m a student, I’m a fan. So I’ve been watching Ring of Honor for as long as I can remember and especially when I left I kept tabs on you. I’ve always kept tabs on you because that’s what friends do, that’s what family does. The one thing that just kept coming back to me, coming back to me, coming back to me was there’s something missing with Matt. There’s something not there, there’s something I feel like I could help with and it wasn’t because you weren’t getting it done in the ring. It wasn’t because you weren’t getting it done in the gym. It wasn’t anything else except for the fact you needed someone to have your back and I made sure I had your back… I don’t take things for granted anymore. When I first started here, a part of me felt like everything should just come to me. Everything should just be given to me. But you realize that, as you go through, that’s not how life works. That’s damn sure not how Ring Of Honor works. Ring Of Honor is just like life. You have to work your ass off to get what you want,” Bennett said. (H/T to Fightful.com for the transcriptions.)
