• IMPACT Wrestling Star Accuses WWE Of Stealing RAW Underground Concept From Him
While speaking on this week’s ROH Strong Podcast, Impact Wrestling star EC3 discussed WWE’s short-lived concept of RAW Underground.
Below is what he said about it:
“While working with the WWE, and even during my NXT run, I pitched this exact same thing about controlling my narrative and this is what I wanted to do with the EC3 character. The day I was released was when I sent them a vignette with verbatim, the exact words I used in the video released online.
While mine was shot in a real underground, this stuff was inauthentic and had no heart. When I saw Shane McMahon in the ring, it looked like manufactured, heartless, and desolate studio-based stuff.
The minute I sent them the video, I knew [the idea] was going to be stolen. I initially thought they would only steal parts of it, but I didn’t expect them to rip off the entire aesthetics [of the concept].”
WWE is done with RAW Underground for the time being, but EC3 thinks they got away with stealing the idea because they have a much larger audience than EC3’s video on YouTube.
