#5. Chris Jericho drops a big teaser of EC3 possibly joining AEW
Jericho caught up with EC3 and he put up a photo of their meeting on Instagram with the following caption: "Big things coming in the future for this talented brother," while also tagging All Elite Wrestling.
EC3 last wrestled a match in the WWE on September 30th 2019 at a main event taping. Carter last appeared on RAW on September 23rd and he has reportedly been sidelined due to a concussion.
It has also been reported that Vince McMahon seems to have given up on the former Impact Wrestling star and the WWE boss shot down the idea of getting the proposed team of EC3 and Drake Maverick to TV.
We still don't know much about EC3's WWE status at this moment and he could very well be brought back to RAW, the brand he is assigned to, once he is cleared to make his return.
While it could also be a work, Jericho's IG post does hint at EC3 probably jumping ship to WWE's rivals in the future.
