Re: Edge: EC3 reminds me of Cena
EC3 provided something different in NXT. I think that's fine. Not everyone has to be in the main event to contribute.
Another problem with this EC3 will be better on the main roster mindset. EC3 just isn't that great, at least compared to the rest of the talent on NXT. I think that's the hard truth to accept for most of his fans. You got Ciampa, Gargano, Dream, Black, Cole and the TUE, Dunne and Ricochet with Riddle and Lee coming in recently. All of these guys are better than EC3 and are rightfully booked above him or are going to be booked above him.
Now, the issue here is that EC3 isn't going to be booked better on the main roster. He's likely going to be given more chances though, but that's not necessarily the same as being booked better. The thing is, is this really a good thing? Because it implies that EC3 is going to be booked above guys that are better than him in comparison to his time on NXT.
There is only one person that I can think of that genuinely benefitted booking wise going from NXT to the main roster and that's Elias. And even then, so many people seem to think that Elias didn't do well on NXT. No, he just played his part and always contributed to the show. He just didn't need to be a main eventer to do it.
I know some people might say Alexa Bliss but Alexa was once upon a time considered underrated in NXT. She had the mic skills and character work, and working more as a manager meant that her in ring deficiencies were hidden. Then we saw her get overpushed with the title. Yeah she has several women's title reigns to her name but that's not at all due to good booking. She got overpushed, and that's not a good thing. If Vince falls in love with EC3, you're looking at an Alexa type push.
