EJ Nduka On Signing With MLW Over Other Companies: 'People Were Ready To Sign Me Sight Unseen'

EJ Nduka says the wrestling industry was willing to take a chance on him, betting on nothing but blind faith.

EJ Nduka, the former Ezra Judge was in the WWE developmental system before being part of the many releases that took place in 2021. Immediately after being released, EJ began receiving offers from others in the wrestling industry before choosing to land in MLW and trusting Court Bauer with the next step in his career.

In an exclusive interview with Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp, EJ spoke about how he ended up in Major League Wrestling and says that MLW was not the only company looking at him sight unseen.

"It happened pretty fast. Of course, I’m at the gym and then I get a message from Joseph. We start talking and things started getting pretty serious. We linked with Court and then we got on a conference call. We let things simmer down a little bit. Then we talked again. I was very interested. They were interested. We made things happen.

"A lot of people were ready to sign me sight unseen. MLW signed me sight unseen. I was getting calls the day, the day after. Everything during that time was such a blur because, you know how it is, it was such a huge pivotal moment, everything starts to blur together. But I’m pretty sure it was within a day or two. Then I started talking to other people in the industry and just asking them what their experiences were at certain promotions. That’s where I was. It’s just been a blessing being at MLW. Like I said, being able to showcase your abilities on a platform like that, it doesn’t get any better."

The wrestling world would eventually get eyes on EJ Nduka with a history-making performance at MLW Battle Riot III. Up next, Nduka will defend the honor of Major League Wrestling against CONTRA inside War Chamber when MLW returns to the former ECW Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday, November 6.
