MAJOR Ex TNA Champion To WWE!

MAJOR Ex TNA Champion To WWE!

To the surprise of very few, former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Ethan Carter III was shown in the front row of NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia last night. The reveal followed earlier reports of Carter having been seen in Philadelphia that day.

Carter was acknowledged only as “EC3” on camera, as well as the article heralding his appearance. It remains to be seen if any part of his name will be modified, if WWE doesn’t wish to refer to him as “Carter”, due to the connection to kayfabe-aunt, and former TNA owner, Dixie Carter.

EC3 will report to NXT, which seems to put to rest the idea that he could be a surprise entrant in Sunday night’s Royal Rumble match. He will join recent signees Candice LeRae and Trevor “Ricochet” Mann (both of whom appeared on camera at TakeOver) in WWE’s development brand.
