After over four years with Impact Wrestling, EC3 seems to be done with the company — and his character was written out of storylines during last night’s TV taping.
According to those in attendance … a Feast or Fired match went down and Carter was one of the wrestlers who grabbed a briefcase, which later revealed he was fired.
Sources tell us Carter’s deal expires between now and the next set of tapings in April, so he was officially written off the program. It’s unclear when the actual date of expiration is on the contract, but the Wrestling Observer reports that he doesn’t intend to re-sign.
As we previously reported, EC3 filed documents to trademark his name last month.
For those who don’t recall, Ethan previously worked in WWE as Derrick Bateman. He was released in 2013 and re-invented himself in TNA, becoming one of the most popular acts on the roster. According to sources, WWE officials have been extremely interested in bringing him back to the company in the past … but it’s unclear if any recent talks have occurred.
