As previously discussed with EC3 Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline had reported that the high priced contracts of Ethan Carter the III and Bobby Lashley would not be renewed. With Impact trying to save money, this had been expected for months. Lashley was to be facing "Johnny Impact" at WrestlePro on Feb. 3rd has now pulled off that show. It is rumored that Lashley is currently in negotiations with both WWE and NJPW. Some are even predicting a Wrestlemania match between he and Lesnar.
Before arriving in IMPACT, Lashley was a former [WW]ECW World Champion, a United States Champion, and was involved with the angle that saw Donald Trump shave the head of WWE CEO Vince McMahon.
We wish him well in all of his future endeavors...
