EC3 def. Fabian Aichner
The “EC3 Trilogy” could have ended in disaster for EC3.
The thrilling high-wire attack of his opponent, Fabian Aichner, which was punctuated by a wild crossbody block from the top rope to the floor, threatened to derail The Top One Percent’s highly anticipated third match in NXT. An unexpected mid-match appearance by Johnny Gargano, who arrived single-mindedly to deliver a signed contract agreeing to a Street Fight against Tommaso Ciampa at TakeOver: Chicago, nearly stole EC3’s thunder and caused visible consternation.
Yet, despite these obstacles, EC3 wrapped up his trilogy with a victory. The egocentric powerhouse downed The NXT LVL with a fireman’s carry neckbreaker for the pin, causing the ever-growing “NX3 Universe” to hold up “NX3” signs in celebration.
