EC3 looks to build momentum against Raul Mendoza
EC3 returns to action tonight on WWE NXT as he squares off against WWE Cruiserweight Classic alum Raul Mendoza.
The Top One Percent impressed mightily in his debut in the NXT North American Title Six-Man Ladder Match at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans. Though he fell short of becoming the inaugural NXT North American Champion, the powerhouse caught the attention of the entire NXT Universe. EC3 will aim to dismantle the tough-as-nails Mendoza, but will the entitled Superstar come into the contest a little too overconfident for his own good, allowing the underdog Mendoza the to knock him down a peg?
