EC3 is still working hard despite being released by WWE
Recently released WWE superstar EC3 took to Twitter to show off his incredible physique.
This was Ethan Carter’s second stint with WWE, and he couldn’t get a fair crack on the main roster. However, that hasn’t fazed him as he keeps working hard to stay in shape.

EC3 was among the wrestlers cut from WWE earlier last month due to WWE’s business-related changes to the coronavirus pandemic.
The former WWE Superstar has not wasted any time hyping his return to the ring, saying he now controls his narrative.
Fans will have to wait though as released talent are under a 90-day non-compete clause, which EC3 is currently counting down on his new website, “Free EC3.”
The site is counting down the seconds until his freedom with a link to merchandise, or, “wearable propaganda.”
He has been vocal on social media since the news about his release. He gave a synopsis of his WWE character and changed his name on Twitter to “Essential Character III.”
In his tweet, EC3 made it known that he won’t participate in any interviews and isn’t interested in signing autographs either. He also expressed that for the first time in a long time, he is in control of his narrative.

Kurt Angle, the WWE Hall of Famer who retired and had been working backstage as a producer, was also let go.
WWE released a statement regarding budget cuts the company had to make in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The company said that it would reduce executive and board member compensation, decrease operating expenses and cut talent expenses.
