Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Ethan Carter III recently took part in a Reddit A.M.A. (Ask Me Anything) chat to promote tonight’s live, two-hour premiere of TNA Impact Wrestling on POP TV. Below are some of the highlights. You can check out the complete chat Reddit.com/r/SquaredCircle.
On EC3’s mainstream appeal and the TNA locker room:
“Even if I’m “the face” or “will be,” I’m not nearly there yet in terms of mainstream appeal. Where I want to be. We have that with Hardys/Angle/etc. I think the locker room when given the chance is of the highest quality and realize what is at stake. The effort will be there on their part. I assure you.”
On thoughts about his Bound For Glory match with Matt Hardy:
“Great besides the finish. Watching it back the other day, I didn’t like me try to convince Jeff to hit Matt. It didn’t make sense, came off as confusing in retrospect.”
On whether or not he watches WWE:
“I view them as the biggest show in this game. I watch constantly because I do not improve if I don’t watch what is taking place in all aspects of wrestling. As far as if it’s somewhere I want to go back, my focus is on where I am at, what I am doing, and what I am in control of. TNA is where I am at. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity here. I will always have a chip on my shoulder. A prove them wrong/ftw attitude. I like my angst. It helps me. Keeps me on edge.”
On his finisher and the fact that Dean Ambrose is no longer using it:
“It’s a tough move for it to look great every time, so I understand him switching it up. If I could go back, I might consider something else, but it’s beaten everybody here, so I guess it works! If anyone had right to steal it first, it was him, since I think I stole it from Callihan and they tagged prior. Either way.”
