Another former WWE star has migrated over to Impact Wrestling in EC3, and he of course made a brief appearance at Slammiversary recently and had fans talking about his new style and gimmick. Someone else who has weighed in on EC3 is WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, who thinks EC3 and former WWE superstar Kurrgan may be the same person, but more importantly thinks WWE could have done more with him.
“Have #EC3 and #KURRGAN been the same guy all along? Has anyone seen @Robert_Maillet & Ethan Carter III in the same place at the same time? Just one man’s opinion, but I think @WWE really missed the boat with #ec3”

In a recent interview, EC3 revealed he was unhappy in WWE for some time and only the COVID-19 pandemic stopped him from requesting his release:
“Honestly, I was going to ask to be released but the pandemic was the only thing that kept me there because I needed money to support my family in case something horrible happened, so they did it for me and that’s fine. I was fine, I was okay. I was actually very relieved. The man who called me seemed to be very upset having to do all that so I was like ‘this is fine. It’s okay. Like it’s going to be okay.’ I don’t have anyone to prove to anyone else or them at all because I don’t live in the past anymore.” (h/t WrestleTalk)
Could WWE have done more with EC3, or is he better off with Impact Wrestling?
