Last Thursday night we saw a side of EC3 that clearly told the world he has been pushed past his limits here at IMPACT Wrestling. In the mind of the man who snapped last week, EC3 has been overlooked, underappreciated and pushed aside for the last time. Speaking his mind freely these days, with no regard for what new management or anyone in the locker room thinks, EC3 recently set his sights on “The Cowboy” James Storm after Storm was voted by the fans to challenge Lashley for the World Championship. In a shocking turn of events, EC3 cost James Storm the title in what appeared to be Storm’s prize to claim.
Tension between these two men has only continued to build until last week, when EC3 came to the ring dressed in chaps and a cowboy hat in an obvious attempt to both embarrass and coax James Storm to the ring. What happened in the moments following Storms arrival to the IMPACT Zone was shocking, violent and brutal beyond anyone’s comprehension.
The actions of EC3 have irrevocably made him a marked man in the eyes of James Storm. What will happen this week when these two men go one-on-one in the six sided ring? If we know one thing about James Storm, it’s that he doesn’t back down from a fight and EC3 has certainly made it crystal clear that he wants a fight. How willing will EC3 be to fight, however, when the Cowboy isn’t handcuffed to the bottom rope but rather is standing eye to eye with the man who brutally assaulted him in what many are calling a cowardly act?
Tensions are high between these two top contenders in IMPACT. What will happen after the events of last week? Will this “match” take place inside the ring or will these two use the entire IMPACT Zone as their battlefield in an attempt to compromise the future of the other man?
