On the subject of Impact departures, Rockstar Spud has been in the news ever since he announced his decision to leave the promotion last year. It has been rumored for months that Spud will be joining WWE’s cruiserweight division. Spud has been backstage for recent Raw and Smackdown events, and it looks like it will only be a matter of time before he shows up on 205 Live. Now that Ethan Carter III, Spud’s former ally on Impact, is a free agent, could it be possible to see them reunite in a WWE ring? Rockstar Spud seems to think so. He recently posted a message on his Twitter account which seemingly indicated that he and Carter could be making a splash together in WWE very soon.
