EC3: Wrestling Died For Me When Goldberg Beat The Fiend
The Fiend was unceremoniously squashed at Super ShowDown 2020
Bray Wyatt’s reinvention as The Fiend in WWE was one of the freshest characters in years, but everything came unravelling when Goldberg flattened him at Super ShowDown for the Universal Championship.
For many, it signalled the beginning of the end for The Fiend, but for EC3, it was the moment where wrestling died.
Ahead of his recent Free The Narrative II event, EC3 spoke with Wrestling Inc., and said the following about Bray Wyatt:
“Bray Wyatt, Windham, is one of the most creative and talented people I’ve ever met, especially in this industry,” started EC3 “I’ve watched him from his inception in FCW coming in as Axel Mulligan and develop what he did and find inspiration he finds in the world outside of the wrestling bubble and bring it in all these unique ways. He was one person that really inspired the Control Your Narrative movement because I’ve never seen somebody so creative try so hard, and be so unique, and do so many different things and take it upon himself to create these things, creating The Fiend and The Funhouse. I’m like, this is amazing, and then I remember, I would call this the day wrestling died for me, I wasn’t even there, when he just got beat by Goldberg. I’ve watched this man work so hard, and be so unique, and be so creative, and do so many different things, and take it upon himself developing something so special, to have it just thrown away by someone’s decision. That’s where Control Your Narrative came from. Tell your story within the narrative."
