    • 123 kid fan

      you think you are funny! but you are nothing but a troll with no life!!! i hope you will kill yourself very soon!!!!!

      • Matthew DeAngelo

        WOW, thanks for the love kid

        • 123 kid fan

          i am not a kid! i was born in 1984! do the math if you can!!

          • Matthew DeAngelo

            I called you kid because your display name 1st off, just because you like being an asshole doesn’t mean everyone else is. You are a kid because only a kid would say dumb shit like kill yourself, I get that you didn’t like my comment saying who, I don’t care kid, doesn’t mean you have to act like a kid. You say your not a kid so don’t act like one.

          • 123 kid fan

            trust me bitch! i have a much better life than you do! i do not act as kid! but you on the other hand are some fat ass who still lives in his mommy’s basement! so watch what you say! by the way! does your mommy know that you are on her computer?

          • Matthew DeAngelo

            As I said numerous times to other people, it’s easy to act big and bad online (which you are clearing trying to be). Using an exclamation mark doesn’t add to your so called “badassness”. I feel sorry for people who get so mad over a comment (especially when it’s not even about them), I know you think it’s getting to me but it’s really not. I’m not responding anymore so feel free to tell all your little friends that your “online badassness” won an imaginary prize.

          • 123 kid fan

            what’s a badass?

        • 123 kid fan

          plus what kid would know who the 123 kid is!

  • Mr. Baker

    Derrick ” I never made it past NXT ” Bateman??? Wow ..MAJOR signing!!!!

  • The huntress in the night

    Eugene 2.0?

  • Ralph Ramos

    I’m sorry, who? Ethan? AKA Derrick Bateman? Well, ok. Contrary to the majority opinion, I hope he proves the WWE wrong and I wish him great success.

  • Fast Eddie

    I have a very good feeling about this guy. Ethan has the potential to become a very big star just like his former fellow NXT alumni Fandango, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Roman Reighns, Big E. Langston, The Wyatts and others.
