WWE Rumors: Real reason behind EC3's absence revealed

The latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter provided a much-needed update on the whereabouts of EC3.

Dave Meltzer noted that Carter has been out of action due to a concussion he suffered at the end of September.

To describe EC3's main roster run as a massive letdown would be an understatement. The former TNA World Champion has suffered from a lack of TV time, and even when he is on TV, EC3 is either seen chasing after the 24/7 Championship along with talents from the undercard or convincingly losing matches.

EC3 last wrestled on the Main Event Tapings on September 30th in a tag team match where he teamed up with Eric Young in a losing effort against Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado.

Carter's last RAW appearance happened on the September 23rd episode of the Red brand where he lost to Rusev.

The 2-time TNA World Heavyweight Champion signed with the WWE in 2018 and moved up to the main roster by the end of the year after a brief stint in NXT.

Despite being a proven main event talent in TNA/Impact Wrestling, EC3 has not received a push in the big leagues of the WWE.

The only major highlight of his main roster run has been winning the 24/7 title on four different occasions, however, as we all know, that is not something to be proud of for a Superstar with the potential to be a top-tier talent.

The 36-year-old has been criminally underutilized and the fans are naturally clamouring for a change. With Paul Heyman now at the wheel on RAW, we could see Superstars such as EC3 getting a deserved share of the spotlight. Heyman wants to push new faces on the brand and Carter is someone who, at the very least, deserves a shot at salvaging his WWE career.

However, that's easier said than done. We still don't have an update regarding his return date, but whenever EC3 does come back, we hope to see him featured on TV more regularly.

What can WWE do with EC3 going forward? A possible repackage? A manager by his side? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
