Ring of Honor announced on Thursday that EC3 has officially signed a contract with the company, thus he is no longer a free agent.
EC3 was part of the cuts by WWE last April due to the financial challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He made a brief return to IMPACT Wrestling last July at their Slammiversary PPV. He also would go to to face Moose in a cinematic match at Bound For Glory PPV last October.
EC3 was scheduled to square off with Jay Briscoe in a Grudge Match at Final Battle, but was pulled from the PPV due to pre-travel COVID-19 testing. During the Ring of Honor television episode last weekend, he made his return to the company, continuing his feud with Jay Briscoe.

EC3 SIGNS WITH ROH
Ring of Honor is pleased to announce that EC3 has signed with the company.
EC3, who had been pro wrestling’s hottest free agent since he hit the open market last summer, made a few appearances with ROH in the fall. He made his unannounced return on last weekend’s episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” to confront Jay Briscoe.
EC3 and Briscoe had been scheduled to face each other at Final Battle in December, but the match was called off after EC3 tested positive for COVID-19.
Recognized as a two-time former world champion, EC3 boasts one of the most chiseled physiques in the sport and stellar speaking skills.
EC3 seized control of his narrative during his time as a free agent. A darker, more intense and more dangerous EC3 showed up in ROH declaring that he was on a quest to see if honor is real.
Now that EC3 is making ROH his home, he’ll have ample time to find out.
