EC3 issued the challenge.
NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion EC3 was interviewed by Kyle Davis on the 9/12 episode of Powerrr. He asked for World Television Champion Thom Latimer to join him at the podium.
EC3 would go on to offer Latimer a title opportunity at the SAMHAIN pay-per-view on October 28th in EC3’s home state of Ohio. In order to get the match, Latimer has to turn in the World TV Title. Kamille entered the conversation and got into a back and forth with EC3 which ultimately led to Latimer saying he will see EC3 at the pay-per-view.
EC3 became champion on night two of the 75th Anniversary Show where he defeated and retired Tyrus.
The Worlds Heavyweight Title bout is the first match announcement for SAMHAIN.
