Trouble, trouble, trouble. That’s what you get when Ethan Carter III is in the house. His next house may be his old one in a return to Impact Wrestling. Impact has been teasing his potential return as a surprise for Slammiversary on July 18. Keeping in line with their fun and games, Impact paid respect to EC3’s greatest matches in their latest top 5 offering.
5. EC3 vs Drew Galloway (aka McIntyre) - Impact Wrestling (Aug. 26, 2016)
4. EC3 vs Matt Hardy in Full Metal Mayhem - Impact Wrestling: No Surrender (Aug. 5, 2015)
3. EC3 vs Bully Ray in Texas Death Match - TNA Slammiversary (June 15, 2014)
2. EC3 vs Rockstar Spud (aka Drake Maverick) in hair vs hair - Impact Wrestling - (Mar. 13, 2015)
1. EC3 vs Kurt Angle - Impact Wrestling: Bell to Bell (July 1, 2015)
EC3 is a two-time TNA World Heavyweight Championship and also won the Impact Grand Championship. The countdown showed his savvy skills to steal wins and also his ability to fight through pain. He won matches after taking a leg drop through a table, a cheese grater to the chest, and a cutter onto shards of glass. He also wrestled in a humongous arm brace and risked injury by smashing it against Spud’s head. What a warrior. EC3 has been away from Impact since January 13, 2018. July 18, 2020 could be the date of his return.
Not many know what the future holds for EC3, but this duck might.
