I recently got to chat with EC Negro and talk about his career in Pro Wrestling Magic, here is the full interview below.
RH: You started wrestling for Pro Wrestling Magic in November of last year, from then on you achieved wins and losses, what made you want to prove that the King of New York was more than just a nickname?
EC: It’s mostly been wins and even in defeat a true King will learn how to correct the mistakes that he makes. Ever since my return to Pro Wrestling and PWMagic specifically I have gotten so much better each time I wrestle and the names of the guys I have beat are impressive.
RH: You’re great at making the PWMagic crowd hate you, these past few months you reached higher in the rankings for a Heavyweight Championship match, what were your thoughts walking in on the biggest match of your career in PWMagic?
EC: It’s Gods plan and what’s meant to be. I always knew that I would be the World Heavyweight Champion and no better place to be it is in Pro Wrestling Magic. I am the thing people come to see. I am what people pay there money to watch. I know how great I am and now the wrestling world does. Pro Wrestling Magic has a champion their company can be proud of and make a lot of money with.
RH: On January twenty first, you did what many said you couldn’t do, you defeated Ricky Martinez at PWM’s Looks Like We Made It event. Did that add any weight on your shoulders being the face of Pro Wrestling Magic?
EC: It’s exactly what I want because as The Pro Wrestling Magic World Heavyweight Champion I want to fight the very best. As Champion I should be given the big name matches that others who aren’t Champion are given. This Championship means I’m the top guy and I don’t care who it is because if you want to prove you are the man that runs the Kingdom you have to dethrone the King.
RH: Recently some controversy was started when you were scheduled to face off against Eddy McQueen, before the match could happen, a few days before, you announced it was cancelled and that you were stripped of the Heavyweight title but didn’t give it up, what was the controversy behind that happening?
EC: It’s pretty simple. Eddy McQueen does not deserve to be in the ring with the Pro Wrestling Magic World Heavyweight Champion. I want the best competition in the world. He is not that. In fact I am not sure if he is a man. I went to Pro Wrestling Magic management and requested better competition. They wanted to give the match to McQueen to make the people happy, but to was never a Championship Match. Hence why I was not stripped. I made my appearance and won the match fair and square.
RH: At PWN’s Make It Through the Rain event, despite being pulled from the show, you appeared and was added into a non-title match against Eddy McQueen and Joey Ryan, in the end McQueen won, do you feel despite saying that he doesn’t deserve a Heavyweight title match that he does now?
EC: Never during the match were the stipulations mentioned. All that was said that it was a 3 way match. I wrested in tons of those match in Pro Wrestling Magic and none of them were elimination. It’s called Wrestling Politics. I pinned Joey Ryan 1-2-3 in the middle of the ring. Not only am I The King Of New York but I am also The New King Of Dong Style. Eddy The Queen needed help to beat me. JT Dunn interfered and hit me with a loaded Death By Elbow. It’s vile and disgusting. The treatment I get as Champion is unfair and unjust.
RH: After you’re through with both Eddy McQueen and JT Dunn, what are your new goals, what does the King of New York want for Pro Wrestling Magic and for himself, are there any wrestlers you feel you have yet to defeat? How are you going to make PWMagic realize that you are their Heavyweight champion for a reason?
EC: After I dispose of those two Jabronis The King Of New York wants to fight the best wrestlers in the world. Doesn’t matter if you were in TV or have a great following on the indies. The King is going to destroy you and prove who I am and why I am The IT Guy. Pro Wrestling Magic already realizes who I am. Their house have grown every show since I debuted. Shocker right? Hahahaha.
RH: Two days ago marked the one year anniversary of Everett Cross being undefeated as the Pro Wrestling Magic Dark Arts Champion, for a year he’s faced many stars, the legendary Gangrel, the former King of Dong Style Joey Ryan, Pinkie Sanchez and Ring of Honor’s Lio Rush, the question is, can anyone dethrone the God of Drivers? You have said how many people have tried dethroning you as the King of New York and of Pro Wrestling Magic, to fully takeover PWMagic, do you feel the need to defeat Everett Cross and prove that you’re the King of Pro Wrestling Magic?
EC: Everett Cross is levels under me. He’s a champion. That’s cool, but he’s not The World Heavyweight Champion. If he had the balls to go Title for Title his reign would end and easily. I want to make this clear I am bigger, smarter, stronger and even faster then Everett. It would be a big mistake to Cross my path. Hahahaha.
Thanks for reading, thank you to EC Negro for taking the time to let me interview him and don’t forget to watch what he does next in Pro Wrestling Magic.
