WWE RAW Underground hasn’t been part of Monday Night Raw over the past few weeks because WWE doesn’t want too many brand mixing for one segment. After the recent Covid-19 issues at the Performance Center, the decision was made to put the show on hold.
EC3 was one of the stars who were released from WWE as part of their April talent cull following the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and he was recently a guest on the ROHStrong Podcast.
The current Ring of Honor star accused WWE of stealing his idea for the show and turning it into their own.
“I knew it was going to be stolen, so I was prepared for it. I didn’t know it’d go to that length, and I know mine played to a minor bubble of the professional wrestling audience while the majority of it saw whatever the hell they put out there.”
“The way I look at it is kind of like I was Wayne’s World. I was producing this show in Aurora, my basement with my buddy Garth. We’ll call him J.C. in this instance, and then Rob Lowe came in, bought us and when I saw Shane McMahon in the ring, not in a real underground, mine was a real underground.”
“[This] manufactured, heartless, desolate studio, I’m looking at Shane and it felt like when Noah was wrapping on Wayne’s World after they bought him out. It was just inauthentic and like I said, it had no heart. So I knew something would’ve been taken from it. I didn’t expect the whole aesthetic, and while it upset my friend, J.C. who I worked very hard on with it, at the same time, it’s just a challenge to do something different, better next time which I definitely plan on doing because again, control your narrative, again, Ring of Honor provides freedom. I’m not tied to doing just that.”
“There’s things I want to do in the future and continue that narrative as sort of supplemental content to whatever other places I’m doing things in and I have bold, ambitious views for it. We’ll see if it works out, I think it will.”
