Edge knows a wrestling talent when he sees one, and he definitely sees one in NXT superstar EC3, as he's given in quite the comparison.
EC3 has only been back in the WWE for just under a year, as he was revealed as a member of the company when he was shown sitting in the audience at NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia last January.
Earlier in December, it was announced that he would be one of several NXT superstars called up to the main roster in the new year as either a member of Monday Night Raw or SmackDown Live.
One WWE Hall of Famer that is already a fan of EC3 is Edge, and he believes he will be a success once he arrives on the main roster.
So much so, The Rated-R Superstar has compared the NXT superstar has been compared to a WWE legend in John Cena.
He said on E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness, via Wrestling Inc: “I think EC3 reminds me of Cena as well, and Elias. 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.”
Many fans are in agreement that EC3 never should have been in NXT to begin with, as he's been main roster ready since he arrived.
Being compared to one of the greatest WWE superstars in history though is quite the compliment. Many fans will now be keeping their fingers crossed and hoping he gets a chance to prove it on the main roster and doesn't get forgotten about like many other NXT stars of the past have been.
