This dude is fast becoming my favorite act in the company.

His entrance is actually really good and looks like the only one TNA bothered to put effort into which could play into the nepotism storyline. His squash matches are fun only because of the great oversell of ECIII's finisher.

Him flying the nerds he squashed to Orlando just to tell them they suck was hilarious and his bullying of the Hebners last week on Impact was awesome.

Every week I am more and more astounded as to how good this guy is and how wwe let go of a guy who had everything wwe wants in a wrestler.

The only downside I can see so far is trying to believe Dixie is his auntie like a Carter reletive would have gone to work for WWE.

It would be pretty cool if he got the fired briefcase because getting out of it because of his family would get him more heel heat.

Much more entertaining than his comedy NXT role.

In honesty this new character is so different from and so much better than his Derrick Bateman comedy gimmick he was using in WWE that its hard to believe the two were the same person. He seems a natural fit for his ECIII character and I can see him being in World title contention within a year if his momentum continues at its current rate. Sting putting him over strong would be a great boost for him as well.

Just a shame Sting didn't put him over then isn't it... He just entered the ring and EC3 did what Bobby Roode had done in the past and left like a chickenshit

ECIII is being booked as a heel who has got where he is through nepotism and he cowardly beats on jobbers who are much smaller than him, so its simple logic that he would weasel out of a match with Sting, as long as Sting does the job when the two of them do square off I have no problem with the way this feud has been booked so far.
Despite Sting being in his fifties hes a legend in the business who heels will fear and run away from, its textbook stuff.

The thing is, as far as I'm concerned, EC3 hasn't got anywhere. To me he isn't a heel, because he hasn't done anything I would consider heelish. He's an opportunist. There's no credibility to him at all because he hasn't been in the ring with anyone of any worth at all - and getting a sixty plus referee to lay down for a three count is not doing it for me either.

All EC3 is doing is using his positon to beat no hopers and referees past retirement age and all I;m thinking is "What a bleeding waste" because he could be using his position in the company to royally screw over the best of the best.

For instance, if EC3 were to get in the ring with someone of worth, say Sting, having bought out the ref of the match beforehand,  then both of them blatantly screw Sting out of winning the match, well, then I'd sit up and take note. Why? Because that's how I think this kind of heel should be operating. It amazes me that no-one has thought to have a ref as a corporate ref, like Nick Patrick was in WCW and later in the WWF.

He wouldn't be fired because he's in the pocket of the Corporate and the faces going up against the corporate heels would have to work damn hard to win a match they're in - which strengthens their babyface persona (just by entering the ring in the first place against such odds) and also the heels.

Got no problem with that. Give him the TV title and let him use the corrupt ref to his advantage and make it impossible to lose the title because he can cheat while others have to play to the letter of the law.

Hell on the rare occasion he loses a title match, have HEEL Dixie come up with a bullshit reason to void the victory for ECIII's opponent and ECIII escapes with the title.

From what I have seen, ECIII is decent on the mic and his ringwork is solid, However his look is so generic it kills it a bit, the haircut, the perfect pearly whites and the chiseled abs is exactly what everyone thinks when they hear wrestler, and it is ECIII (Which may be his gimmick, wrestling perfection? I really haven't seen enough to know). He does play the Heel Role very well, and the few promos I have seen are pretty good. 
We bashed the door in. The bad guy was a dick. I shot him

I like what TNA is doing with this guy. I like that he is working with guys like Sting, Angle and Joe because to establish someone as an important talent on the roster, you need to work with the top guys in the company and ECIII has been doing that for months now. And he has a ready made feud with Hardy once Hardy returns eventually.
 
I like that he and fellow spoiled brat Magnus cant get along because each others ego wont allow that to happen while Aunt D is trying to keep the peace in Dixieland.
 
I enjoyed his Impact365 video where after defeating Sting he claimed that he absorbed Sting's power and now he is the Icon of TNA
 
 
I just want TNA to add to the smugness of the character. There are these Dos Equis commercials about the most interesting man in the world and I think doing little ECIII video packages either for TV or just the Impact365 in the same vein would be awesome.

God why am I the only talking about this great man?

The man, the myth, the legend ECIII had his first real match on Impact this past week and he was as impressive as ever. His dropkick off the apron onto Gunner and the Superfly splash off the top rope onto a prone Gunner on a ladder were the two best spots of the match. He also took his bumps very well when GunStorm was on the offense.

One thing that is disappointing about ECIII's ascension to the upper midcard is that TNA aren't giving him an opportunity to hit that sweet looking headlock driver finisher he has. I get that Sting can't take the move but from reading house show reports, he isn't winning matches using that move either. And if he ever gets in the ring with Kurt Angle, I DONT want Kurt to have to sell that move given the state of Angle's neck.

I get more and more miffed every week why wwe didn't do anything with this very talented dude.
