Over the last few years several stars who have parted ways with Impact Wrestling have gone on to find success with WWE, and it looks like one more former Impact World Champion could potentially be WWE bound in the future. Eli Drake’s contract with Impact is set to expire soon, and a fan recently asked Dave Meltzer if there’s any chance of Drake making his way to WWE.
@davemeltzerWON Any truth to the rumor of Eli Drake coming to WWE? Side Note: We share the same hometown.

Drake recently talked about his status with Impact during an interview with The Mirror, and he noted that he’s keeping all of his options open.
“It really depends. I am looking at all my options. I am very grateful for the opportunities Impact have given me and putting me on the stage they have put me on. I also have grown my bank account enormously! I’m doing well on that front. So I’m very grateful for it. But at the same time, I am a businessman, I am going to look into any opportunities that are afforded to me and anybody who wants to talk and wants to throw numbers my way and anything like that, of course I am open to that. Will I stay with Impact? That’s a definite possibility. It could be a likelihood, I really don’t know. It really depends on what else is out there. But I am interested in any opportunity that comes my way, that’s for sure.”
