Speculation over the future of Eli Drake, one of Impact Wrestling’s most valuable commodities, is over.
The 35-year old was widely tipped for a WWE return when his contract expired on July 31, where he previously competed under the name Slate Randall in NXT.
However, Drake has seemingly had a change of heart and has signed a new multi-year deal with Impact.
The promotion announced the news via Twitter:
