One TNA star could be headed to the WWE.
WWE is interested in bringing back former TNA World Heavyweight Champion EC3, who has had a stint with the sports entertainment company.
Now that EC3 is free and clear to sign whichever promotion he wants, things have gotten interesting as Renegade Wrestling Revolution has announced that EC3 will no longer be appearing on their January 28th event.
It has to be noted that January 28th is the same day as the WWE Royal Rumble PPV. The promotion sent out the following on their Facebook page:
“BREAKING NEWS!!!!!! Do to reasons out of RWR control EC3 will not be able to attend RWR “OVER THE TOP”. EC3 has said he will be back to RWR in the near future. We here at RWR wish EC3 the best and will see him soon.

EC3 began his professional wrestling career in 2002, and wrestled for several promotions beginning in 2006. In July 2006, he signed a contract with the WWE where he wrestled as Derrick Bateman.
He was assigned to WWE's developmental territories Ohio Valley Wrestling and Florida Championship Wrestling, where he won the FCW Florida Tag Team Championship with Johnny Curtis. During his time with WWE, he competed in the fourth and fifth seasons of NXT.
On May 17, 2013, he was released from his contract. He joined TNA Wrestling in September of that year. He is a two-time TNA World Champion.
Ethan Carter III was a guest on former WWE star Sean Waltman's X-Pac 12360 podcast last year. During the appearance, he commented on a possible return to the sports entertainment company. Here is what he had to say (transcript courtesy of Wrestling Inc):
"It's definitely a thought I have now that I've accomplished a lot and kind of made a name for myself elsewhere and to be blunt and frankly honest I have a lot left to accomplish," Carter said when asked whether or not he would return to WWE.
"I believe I have a lot to prove there [WWE], that I never had the chance to do or didn't deserve at the time. But you know I've learned a lot about myself and know myself now that it's definitely on my mind but it's not something I can focus on, my commitments are with Impact."
