EC3 thanks Jon Moxley for his comments on his disastrous WWE run. His only work of note there would come against the former AEW Champion.
EC3 was seen as a huge prospect when he re-joined the WWE in 2018. He had already made a name for himself during his time with TNA where he became a 2-time world heavyweight champion. Many believed he would scale even greater heights at WWE. Unfortunately, that never came to be.
Stuck in a storyline designed by the WWE to bury Jon Moxley, then known as Dean Ambrose, on his way out, the plan horribly backfired and caused the fans to turn their backs on EC3 instead. Even Moxley acknowledged that this was unfair to the new guy during his appearance on ‘Talk is Jericho’ after leaving the WWE.
“They have EC3 come in as a babyface, defeat me in two minutes. I don’t know if this is before or after the press release. It’s like at the same time. The crowd does not like this because it’s transparent what’s happening, and this is not good for EC3 because now he’s gonna get the backlash. So it was an unfair position for him to be put in.” Moxley had explained then,

EC3 has since been released from the WWE. He returned to Impact Wrestling before moving on to Ring of Honor. Unlike many others who have publicly spoken about their time in the WWE, EC3 has remained rather quiet. Which is why he says he’s pleased with what Moxley said about him adding that it helped him validate several of his issues.
“That helped a lot because I have such a high amount of respect for him and his work. It was, I guess, validation’s a good word. ‘Cause I’m not going to be the guy that’s going to complain on social media,” EC3 told Fightful. “I’m not gonna be the guy that’s gonna whine, bitch and moan about anything. I’m going to try to handle it the best I can or I’m going to do what is necessary to get out of it. I’m going to do what I can myself. But, that helped.
“So, the people that knew were like, ‘Oh, this makes sense. Yeah, okay.’ I just don’t want people to think I wouldn’t try or that I’d relegate myself to being sub par because I’d never do that. Ever. It’s just not who I am. So, that helped. Yeah. Hat tip, ‘Thank you, brother.’
“At the same time, I can’t put too much in one man’s opinion as much as I respect it. It’s not going to do me any favors here, so I still have to put in the work here with whatever that may be regardless. Whether it matters or not. But, I was willing to try.” he added.
