The speculation surrounding the future of free agent Matt Morgan heightened today after the former TNA star changed the handle of his official Twitter account from @TNAMattMorgan to @BPMattMorgan.

Morgan confirmed in one Twitter post that he had indeed left TNA, ending speculation that he and the promotion could work out a new deal for him to return.

When asked point-blank by one follower if this meant he was going to WWE, a company he worked for from 2002 to 2005, he responded: "Isn't it obvious, I'm not allowed to say by now? LOL." 

In today's daily update over at, Dave Meltzer discusses Morgan's future in WWE, noting that the company is keen to sign him to a contract, but has sworn off doing so for the time being due the TNA's current lawsuit against it for contract-tampering issues:  

It's expected he's going to be in WWE as soon as he can and that WWE feels comfortable in bringing him in, given the TNA lawsuit against them and the claim to get the restraining order lifted that they had no interest in any TNA talent.

It will be interesting to see what WWE does with Morgan, assuming he does ink a deal at some point. While his in-ring work remains patchy at best, he showed himself to be a decent talker and charismatic personality during his time in TNA. He could be a big asset to the company, providing he is used correctly.
