The Royal Rumble is looming, which means every little detail happening around the world of professional wrestling will be analyzed with the finest of combs. It is why speculation is heating up concerning former world champion Ethan Cater III.

We already know that during the latest rounds of Impact TV taping, Carter was “fired” after he and Moose both opened briefcases at the same time, with the former’s suitcase giving him the boot from the company. Now we can add some extra fuel to the EC3-to-the-WWE fire.

Renegade Wrestling Revolution has announced the talent will no longer be appearing on their January 28th event. For the uninitiated, that’s the same day was the 30-man, over-the-top event.

“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.
