• Bad News Regarding EC3’s WWE Main Roster Status
Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion EC3 made his WWE main roster debut earlier this year and things aren’t looking good for him.
He did pick up a big win over former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose in his debut match on RAW, but things have went downhill since then.
Ambrose went on to defeat EC3 the next week and avenged his loss. EC3 hasn’t had a match on RAW or SmackDown since then.
He has had a couple of matches on WWE Main Event since then and he has lost to the following wrestlers in those matches:
– Apollo Crews
– Tyler Breeze
For those who don’t know, Crews & Breeze are used like enhancement talent on RAW and EC3 losing to them (especially this soon in his main roster career) doesn’t sound good.
It wouldn’t be surprising at all (given WWE’s history) if WWE officials have already given up on him.
