‘The expectation is that Bobby Lashley and Ethan Carter III will leave when their contracts are up, and one or both will end up with WWE,’ wrote Dave Meltzer in his latest Wrestling Observer newsletter,
Lashley, 41, spent two years in WWE between 2005 and 2007 where he was considered one of their stars of the future.
The former amateur wrestling star and MMA fighter was one half of one of the biggest matches in wrestling history when he took on Umaga at Wrestlemania 23.
Lashley represented Donald Trump in a hair vs hair match, which resulted in Vince McMahon having his head shaved.
Despite his physical prowess, Lashley left WWE in 2007, and has spent the last decade wrestling on the independent circuit, in Impact Wrestling, and has also accumulated a 15-2 record inside the cage.
Ethan Carter III wrestled as Derrick Bateman in WWE, but never achieved significant support despite his charisma and internet popularity.
Carter appeared on the third and fourth seasons of NXT, and enjoyed support from Daniel Bryan who appeared in many segments with him.
A move to Impact Wrestling in 2013 proved inspired, as he won their world championship twice and carved out a reputation as one of the best characters in wrestling.
