WWE has recently started airing vignettes for NXT stars EC3, Lacey Evans, Heavy Machinery, Nikki Cross and Lars Sullivan ahead of their call-ups to the main roster.
The NXT quintet has been advertised on both Raw and SmackDown Live over the last two weeks, so it is unclear which brand they will all compete on.
Let’s put our fantasy booking hat on and predict who will go where and, more importantly, who their first feud will be against…
Main-roster brand: SmackDown Live. Why? Because if EC3 is allowed to take his over-the-top character to the next level, there is one main-roster star who he simply has to feud with: The Miz.
First feud: The Miz. Why? Because EC3 is essentially another version of the eight-time Intercontinental champion. Their wild personalities would make for an incredible feud — WrestleMania-worthy, perhaps — and they are destined to meet at some point in the next couple of years, so why not book it right away? Miz is busy with Shane McMahon at the moment, but that doesn’t mean EC3 can’t get involved in the storyline!
