Why is EC3 so wasted?

Hey all,

I haven't been in the loop much. I got back into wrestling when the Hardy's were over in TNA. EC3 was awesome, like actually amazing. Went to a WWE house show even though I rarely watch and he got embarrassed in 90 seconds. What happened? Can't understand how such a talent could be at the very bottom of the card.

Because Vince doesn't want to make a new star who could potentially go to AEW

He has the look, the wrestling ability and the charisma. My guess is that Vince just doesn't like him.

Easy they got him to destroy him to the point any other promotion can't build him again, that way he never becomes a danger to WWE.

Re: Why is EC3 so wasted?

I've always found him overrated honestly. He'd make a good mid card guy but no more than that.

My guess is that Vince doesn't like his face. Knowing how hard he tried to bury Christian because he didn't like his face, even though he's a lot more traditional looking than EC3 is why I believe this.

Re: Why is EC3 so wasted?

Aside from AJ has their been anyone from TNA to get a major push? Maybe Joe to some extent but only so far. I think Vince really looks down on anyone from TNA.

Re: Why is EC3 so wasted?

It was reported a while back that Vince wanted to push him as a face but then Ambrose got cheered over him when they had a match, by the way this is when Ambrose was getting ready to leave the company so EC3 got the blame, same thing happened years ago when Edge couldn't have a good match with Great Khali so he was punished.

Re: Why is EC3 so wasted?

I'm of the belief that its because he can cut a promo, and the WWE don't like people who can cut promos. I mean look at their top guys; Reigns, Rollins, Styles, Kofi, they're all very poor mic workers. Lesnar can have a good line here and there but he's never been known for his mic work. The only Main Eventer in the WWE today that should even be allowed to touch a microphone is Daniel Bryan.

Then you look at the guys who can actually cut a promo; Miz, Wyatt, Owens, Ziggler, EC3, Elias, Joe, Rusev, maybe a few others they are all jobbers.

Maybe its unintentional, but it sure seems like WWE dont like people who can cut a promo.

You can catch me, Rih, in the new La Ferrar'
