AEW has been making a lot of headway recently due to its focus on wrestling and treatment of all of its Superstars.

Many former WWE superstars like Jon Moxley (formerly known as Dean Ambrose), Shawn Spears (formerly known as Tye Dillinger), Awesome Kong (formerly known as Kharma), Chris Jericho, Cody (formerly known as Cody Rhodes and Stardust), Dustin Rhodes (formerly known as Goldust), Tommy Dreamer, Billy Gunn, and Leva Bates (formerly known as Blue Pants who briefly competed in NXT) have already made appearances and/or have signed with AEW.

Several WWE Superstars like Shinsuke Nakamura, AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Mike Kanellis, Maria Kanellis, Mojo Rawley, the Usos, the Hardy Boys, and Jinder Mahal have recently signed new WWE contracts that last for up to five years.

Other top superstars like Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, The New Day, The Miz, Kevin Owens, Bayley, Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax, and Drew McIntyre are unlikely to leave the company any time soon; other Superstars might.

#5 EC3

EC3 was announced along with several other NXT call ups as a part of WWE's New Era in December 2018 alongside Heavy Machinery, Lacey Evans, Nikki Cross, and Lars Sullivan. While the other five NXT call ups have all found their place on WWE's main roster, EC3 is yet to do so.

After his first appearance, EC3 spent weeks just standing still doing nothing and not saying a single word. Things looked to be going up for the Top One Percenter when he defeated Dean Ambrose in his Monday Night Raw debut.

However, he was defeated by Dean Ambrose the next week before flirting with Mandy Rose on the Fastlane Kickoff Show.


Since then, EC3 has been relegated to Main Event where he goes 50/50 with Superstars like Tyler Breeze and Titus O'Neil. EC3 was quickly eliminated from the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 35, was destroyed by Braun Strowman, and was the first Superstar removed from the 50-man battle royal at Super Showdown.

While EC3 did briefly win the 24/7 Championship, other Superstars like Heath Slater, Titus O'Neil, and even 205 Live general manager Drake Maverick have held that title. The Top One Percenter is frustrated by his booking which could cause him to want to look for new pastures.

EC3 showed a lot of potential as a top Superstar on NXT and Impact. His excellent mic skills and respectable wrestling ability could prove an asset to a company like AEW. He can compete against some of the best Superstars in the world and possibly start a tag team with a heel that is very similar to him in MJF.
