[9.0] "EC3 has certainly come into his own since joining TNA. Has a solid and ever-improving in-ring skill set, natural charisma and mic skill, plays his character extremely well, has the look. Has already carved out a niche for himself as one of TNA's top heels, and to their credit, TNA has done a great job of building him up the right way through important wins without rushing him to the main event right away. Doubtless there is gold in his future, but there's no rush for it. Amazing WWE didn't want this guy."

[9.0] "EC3 is possibly the best heel in the business today. He is a great wrestler, who is fantastic on the mic, pulls great matches consistently, looks like a champion, and draws great heat. His gimmick as a privileged brat has expanded to a vengeful, ego-centric asshole which is constantly evolving."

[9.0] "This guy is very good. He was someone that just needed to be given something good to do and he would excel at it. And Derrick Bateman has done just that only now he is EC3. EC3 is one if my favorites in TNA right now and a very good heel. Excels on the mic, plays the rich, snobby character very well and I like the way he works his matches."
Mizzle Assault Ant wrote on 14.03.2015:
[10.0] "I don't know what WWE thought this guy was missing, but good god am I glad they gave him a chance to maximize his potential elsewhere. Whether you like TNA or hate them, EC3 has become a shining star in the industry and perhaps the greatest heel going today. His ability to play the crowd is astounding, he responds creatively on the spot each time and always comes up with something excellent. His mic skills are tremendous on the whole, and his character work is beyond reproach. His ring skills are also above average, and while they may not stand out as much as the rest of his game he MORE than makes up for it when he has a good story to tell. For the love of god, check out his hair vs. hair match with Rockstar Spud from the 3/13 episode of Impact, it is perhaps the most amazingly heelish thing that ever happened."

[10.0] "Ethan Carter III is one of the best stars on television! He could definitely improve his ring work but he is still the most entertaining guy on tv"
JMTheBadOne wrote on 12.12.2014:
[5.0] "An indie standout and decent developmental wrestler, Ethan Carter is now part of the IMPACT roster as a dude who was pushed too hard with nothing to show for it. He's got good looks, but needs to have a bit more charisma if he wants to get good heat from fans."

[8.0] "You could always tell even on NXT that Derrick Bateman had talent and potential. He's proving on TNA that he could have been a fantastic main eventer for WWE and could still be an even better main eventer in TNA if it survives."
AriesMark wrote on 05.12.2014:
[8.0] "Changed move vote recently as he quickly grew on me. EC3 is one of the very few reasons that I still even watch Impact today (along with Aries, Roode, and Storm). His mic skills are top notch, his in-ring has improved drastically, and he went from a 4 to an 8 in my opinion. Very talented worker with a lot of potential and a decent finisher."
JustinJDMarineau wrote on 11.10.2014:
[10.0] "Throughout the span of 5 years that I've watched EC3, he's always been very good in the ring and no question has the ability to put on some great matches. In those past couple years, I was just up and down about his character. I loved watching him team with Johnny Curtis in FCW and on NXT season 4, he was literally the most entertaining "rookie" on the show. But then through NXT Redemption and the rest of his WWE run, I liked him but I wasn't into his character anymore cause the stuff he said on the mic became too cheesy and what not and it wasn't his fault. Now I'm SO glad he's an over heel in TNA as Ethan Carter III cause he has shown me that he is main event caliber talent, he has a whole lot of charisma, of course his character is very entertaining now and he's funny, and WWE really missed the boat with this guy by foolishly not knowing what to do with him."
Matt Stanson wrote on 12.09.2014:
[10.0] "Very outstanding worker and his run in TNA made him more of a star than his tenure with WWE (NXT). Despite the fact that he may not have a "gimmick" but he's made himself a star in TNA. I believe in the year 2015/16 EC3 would possibly become world champion, he has the physique of a champion. He's got the looks, charisma and the brains of a high quality match."
