EC3 was one of the unfortunate Superstars to be released from their contracts following WWE’s budget cuts. His WWE career didn’t play out quite like what he expected.

The TNA Powerhouse was expected to make it big in WWE, however, he didn’t go further than a small feud with Dean Ambrose (now Jon Moxley) and an appearance in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Obviously a bit put-off by the way WWE treated him and booked his matches, EC3 does not hesitate to let out his feelings on the company.

The good news is that he is making a prodigal son-like return to Impact wrestling soon. He may have been not more than a filler in WWE, but he is close to a legend in Impact Wrestling.

EC3 was severely underutilized by WWE

He could immediately challenge for the championship belt and thrive where he belongs. WWE however, has a lot to think about.

EC3 isn’t the only wrestler who hasn’t made it big due to poor booking. The fact that EC3 thought that his WWE debut gimmick was the worst that he ever did, says a lot.

What was supposed to be EC3’s big moment somehow became Nia Jax’s, which then became Dean Ambrose’s. The spotlight was completely taken from what could have been a thunderous main roster debut.

In retrospect, EC3 should have made it far past the boundaries set for him by WWE. His physicality and athleticism should’ve paved the Championship road for him.

However, WWE just didn’t see it in him and decided to include him in the list of released Superstars. His fans wait to see him make a huge return to the embracing arms of Impact Wrestling, where he is at his best.
