I guess he changed his mind. There is no one more powerful or influential in wrestling than Vince McMahon. A simple word in either direction can change your career for either the better or worse because he runs the biggest promotion in the world. That brings a lot of good and bad feelings for fans, as you never know when someone might be crushed because of McMahon’s decisions. That may be the case again.
WWE has a lot of wrestlers on all of its rosters. With so many names running around, it is no secret that some of them are going to get more camera time than others. This can create a problem, or at least an annoyance, for a lot of fans if their favorites are not able to appear on television. As it turns out, McMahon may have dropped the hammer on another performer for a reason.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, EC3’s career in WWE is on hold as McMahon is not a fan. While Paul Heyman could usually do something about this, McMahon is adamant about not pushing EC3 as McMahon has given up on him completely. This comes after an attempt to pair EC3 with Drake Maverick after the two of them had success in Impact Wrestling. That did not go well either, as McMahon was said to have “hated that too”.
EC3 has had some success in WWE. Check out what could have been:
Opinion: For the life of me I don’t get this. I know EC3 may not have been the absolute best in the world but he had more than enough talent to be given a chance. That’s the thing about EC3 in this situation: he never even had a chance to show what he could do and it showed badly. I’m not sure what McMahon can’t stand about EC3 so much but at least let him go back to NXT where he can be a star again.
What do you think of EC3? Will he ever get a break in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
