In the few brief backstage shots of him, you can see the same reaction he did at that USO picnic or whatever it was.
He's another in the waste creative makes of virtually ....everyone. Even Seth Rollins, at the top, keeps looking lost in whatever senseless feud creative throws at him. There are no stories, no storylines, nothing to depict but silliness like the Benny Hill 24/7 Title.
How can they tell a story in the ring when they're not given a story to tell? Answer: They can't...and it shows. They're mostly just going through the motions, like wax figures of real people. WWE is effectively killing any enthusiasm their wrestlers have for the business.
Moxley said it in a podcast interview: they introduced EC3 as face, but he turned heel when he won over Ambrose the first time. The following house shows EC3 was heel against Ambrose and he was not intended to be!
Observing WWE over they years I guess the following happened backstage: in the summary it was seen as EC3`s fail and not a result of the booking. So they throw him away to pick him up later ... maybe.
On one had he has pretty much everything Vince loves..
On the other hand...ya got me. Is it the lingering smell of TNA about him? Is the Ambrose / Moxely stuff? Is it Vince just punishing the guy to see if he will "take it" before pushing him? (Vince has been know to do this)..
Honestly, the burial of EC3 defies logic. In other words, its classic Vince.
he clearly slept with Stephanie or something right? The treatment of EC3 is definitely on my top 10 of "if i had a wrestling/podcast...who I'd want to interview and what I'd ask them about". Because seriously what the fuck?
This is just so sad, nobody deserves to get that treatment. EC3 didn't even get a single chance to show his skills on the main roster and he's already earmarked as an ultimate jobber. Fucking shame, wish Vince could just fuck off sometimes and stop ruining people's careers.
