EC3 Reveals Origins Of CYN's Rant Room
More on CYN's rant room
Along with declaring the promotion won't feature Superkicks, Canadian Destroyers or Tope Suicidas, Control Your Narrative have introduced a rant room at their live events where fans can pay to shout at wrestlers on the show.
The concept has certainly sparked discussions and EC3 detailed the rant room's origins during an interview with Chris Van Vliet.
"The rant room originated because it sounds cool in my mind. In the first feature we did I always thought that if we were creating an army of men, there would be this room with a camera, almost like a confessional. They would walk into the room and just rant and get it out. It started as that, but then I am watching social media where people are making all these horrific statements to people I know," EC3 began.
"There is nothing you can say to me to hurt me, but when it is people I know and have the best intentions, these horrible things are being said that no one would say to their face. In essence, maybe I rage tweeted, but I initiated the rant room. You can choose three minutes in the rant room, pay $100, and say anything to a wrestler of your choice and they can't do anything about it. The backlash we received was because we were using the rant room to get money, which I am. But if you want the rant toom and you don't want to pay a cent, I will give it to you too. You won't do it to people's faces, you are a coward," he added.
The former ROH talent actually believes it could be a way to resolve differences, with EC3 giving the example of a fan paying $100 to rant at Austin Aries.
"Yeah, so we were in Orlando and someone asked me if the rant room was real? I said it was and they asked to talk to Austin Aries. I said, 'S**t! OK, I don't know if he is here.' The one problem is that the rant room was initially just meant for me, and bringing other people into my insanity was not the best choice, but those that support it were behind it. So Austin agrees, we find the guy and I bring them into the room," EC3 continued.
"For those three minutes, all the fan did was talk about how good of a wrestler Austin Aries was and how much he respects him. After a while, the fan said 'I wish you would just stop tweeting your opinions so much.' Austin asked why and the fan had no justification. I'm like I think this is good. What I learned is that face to face, different opinions can find common ground and peace, and maybe that is what the rant room is for."
