While speaking to Newsweek, EC3 revealed why he decided to leave Impact Wrestling and mentioned that it had nothing to do with their business or money.
“My decision to leave Impact had nothing to with their business or finances and everything with me wanting to challenge myself to something new. Leaving Impact was a very difficult decision as I had six months left on a very lucrative and talent-friendly contract. Anthem lived up to that contract and always treated me with the utmost respect as a businessman and a person.”
Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode and Drew McIntyre have all had success after leaving Impact Wrestling for NXT. There’s very little doubt that EC3 will likely become one of the brand’s top stars in short time.
