WWE Interested in Top Indie Star Shane Strickland

Indie superstar Shane Strickland is someone that WWE is “looking at and will be coming in for a future look,” according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Strickland is the current EVOLVE Champion, defeating former champion Matt Riddle on August 4. He’s also the former Major League Wrestling Heavyweight Champion and former CZW Heavyweight Champion, and also wrestles in Lucha Underground as “Killshot.”

However, it was recently reported by PWInsider that Strickland signed a “long term” contract last month with Major League Wrestling, which allowed him to wrestle in indie promotions but was thought to prevent him from jumping to WWE. There is some contradictory information, so we’ll see if anything clears up in the coming weeks.
