He’ll get there. One of the most interesting things to see in the world of WWE is talents getting the call up from NXT to the main roster. Some of these can be almost instant successes while some of them might not be as interesting as others. It’s interesting to see how many people seem like they could make the jump instantaneously while others might take some time. In some cases though, there’s a delay for a specific reason. That’s the case here.
According to Mike Johnson on PW Insider Elite Audio, EC3 might have been ready to be called up around Summerslam but suffered a concussion during his match at Takeover: Brooklyn IV. EC3 missed over a month of action after the show but has since returned to TV. There is no word on when he’ll be called up, though his name has been rumored for a move to the main roster for awhile now.
Here’s what might be coming to the main roster:
Opinion: EC3 going to the main roster makes a lot of sense as he’s the kind of guy that seemed ready for the top level the day he debuted in NXT. He has the right look, the work and the talking abilities to be on the main roster but I can understand why they wanted to have him spend a little time down in NXT. At the same time though, there’s only so much room in NXT so moving someone up when they don’t need much more polishing makes sense.
