During a recent episode of the E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Edge and former World Champion Christian talked about EC3, Lars Sullivan, Lacey Evans, Nikki Cross, and Heavy Machinery being called up from NXT to the main roster.
This is where Christian stated that he thinks EC3 is better suited for the main roster than NXT, which led to a response by Edge, who stated that EC3 reminds him of John Cena.
“I think EC3 reminds me of Cena as well, and Elias,” Edge prefaced. “And I think if you were to put Cena on the NXT roster starting out, I don’t know how great it would’ve gone, but you put him on the main roster and you see what happened. I think that’s very similar with EC3, and his skillset, and where he’s at. And I think, not that he didn’t do great in NXT, I just don’t think it’s the best place for a guy like him. I think he’s really kind of going to flourish coming to one of those two shows.”
