Many believe that the now forgotten WWE Run of former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Ethan Carter III was a missed opportunity and he could have become a big star in the company only if he was handled correctly.
While appearing on Sean Waltman’s, X-Pac 12360 podcast, Ethan talked about many things including a possible WWE return and the time he got fired from the company. Below are some of the highlights from his latest interview:
When asked what he learned from the late WWE legend Dusty Rhodes, the current TNA star said that he learned things about how to deliver a good promo and how to tell a story through it:
“Just communication, telling a story the ability to base a promo. The hook in the beginning and the conclusion being the most important part and the peaks and valleys you take them on the way, when you’re trying to tell that story. He compared it to a lot of promos to match and match to promo.”
Talking about the time he got released from WWE, Carter revealed that he had suffered an injury and was sent back to development before he got fired:
“I got hurt on the road, I believe it was a Saturday Night Main Event match with Cesaro and I kinda got hurt. I had surgery and rehab so I went back to developmental to at least work on my skills or do whatever to get back on the radar. Instead, I got fired, but it’s okay, it’s a lesson to learn and it inspired me to work ever harder.”
Finally, when asked about whether or not he will be interested in returning to WWE, the former TNA World Champion said that it’s definitely a thought in his mind as he believes he has a lot left to accomplish:
“It’s definitely a thought I have now that I’ve accomplished a lot and kind of made a name for myself elsewhere and to be blunt and frankly honest I have a lot left to accomplish. I believe I have a lot to prove there (WWE), that I never had the chance to do or didn’t deserve at the time.”
