It’s that time again! On Jan 28th, we will see the Royal Rumble on the WWE network. We will even see history made; as we watch the women battle in the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble match. As we all know how WWE is we could see some debuts, and possibly some legends, and even some returns. Anything is possible in a Royal Rumble Match. However, one royal rumble entrant could be EC3.

Who is EC3?

Ethan Carter III is 34 years old, a two-time world champion, and remains of Impact’s biggest success stories. He recently has been written off storylines and ended his four-year run with Impact Wrestling. He was part of the WWE in 2009, underneath the name Derrick Bateman. Do you remember him perhaps? He was involved with Maxine (currently of Lucha Underground) and Fandango in a love triangle. At one point he even had a storyline with former Divas’ Champion Kaitlyn as her boyfriend. His last appearance was against Big E Langston in NXT in May 2013.

Royal Rumble?

Carter is now a free agent, and WWE has been interested in bringing him back. One way to bring him back; is to set him up for the Royal Rumble, and enter him as a surprise. They got plenty of room, Samoa Joe is out due to injury; also you probably can go ahead and say anybody who holds a title will not wrestle in the Rumble. Who could return for the Rumble? Could we see EC3 return? If he returns what brand will he be on? Who else will enter the Rumble? Who do you think will win? Will we have a Raw or Smackdown winner? Feel free to comment below and let us know what you think!
