• Former WWE Star’s Return For Royal Rumble 2018 Ruled Out, Return Of Another Former WWE Star At Royal Rumble 2018 Still Possible (Possible Spoiler)
At the recent set of Impact Wrestling TV tapings, former WWE Stars Bobby Lashley & Ethan Carter III (EC3) finished up with the company. This started immediate speculation that both of them would be returning to WWE at Royal Rumble 2018.
While WWE officials are interested in bringing both Lasley & EC3 back, Lashley won’t be able to return at Royal Rumble 2018 PPV as he’s still contracted to Impact Wrestling till February 1st.
On the other hand, WWE can bring EC3 back for the Royal Rumble 2018 PPV as he’s currently a free agent. For those who don’t know, EC3 was Derrick Bateman in WWE/NXT.
Former TNA President Dixie Carter might have hinted at EC3 going to WWE by tagging WWE in her tweet about EC3:

Another hint at EC3 making a surprise return at Royal Rumble 2018 is that he’s been pulled from an indy event which takes place on the same day as the Royal Rumble 2018 PPV.
Below is what Renegade Wrestling Revolution announced:
