I don’t think he’s happy with it. One of the biggest shows of the year has been the massive set of releases back in April. There were several names released at the same time at a level that you do not see in WWE. With so many names gone from the company at one time, it is pretty clear that some of them are not going to be happy. One such name is taking it a step further.
One of the more confusing cases over the last few years has been EC3. A former Impact Wrestling World Champion, he made his NXT debut in 2018 and was called up to the main roster early the next year. EC3 promptly did nothing of note on Monday Night Raw and was often left sitting on the sidelines. This was a bit odd given his look, skills and resume, but he ultimately did nothing before being released in April. It turns out he isn’t thrilled with the idea.
This is one of the more unique reactions you will see. Check out what EC3 did to his own merchandise:
EC3 has posted a new video to Twitter showing himself finding and purchasing his WWE action figure at a Target in Florida. After buying the figure, EC3 talks about how cool it is to buy your own figure, which he then drops into the garbage without saying anything else. At the moment, it is not clear where EC3 will be wrestling next, though Impact Wrestling has been hinting that several released WWE wrestlers will be appearing at their Slammiversary event on July 18.
Opinion: Can you blame him for not being thrilled about WWE? EC3 is a great example of someone who was never given a chance and, like the video showed, was thrown in the trash. Why bring him up to the main roster or even sign him in the first place if that was your plan for him? I don’t know what EC3 could have done in WWE but he never had the chance and that is the case with far too many people.
What do you think of EC3? Where will he wind up? Let us know in the comments below.
