SEScoops has learned that Major League Wrestling recently signed many of the top performers who have been working for the promotion.
With the recent success of MLW and the launch of FUSION, its new weekly television series, there has been interest from other promotions in acquiring some of their talent. WWE in particular was interested in signing British star Jimmy Havoc, who also competes for Progress, Defiant and ICW.
The list of wrestlers who recently signed with MLW include:
- MLW World Champion Shane Strickland
- Jimmy Havoc
- “Filthy” Tom Lawlor
- Maxwell Jacob Friedman
- Aria Blake
- Salina de La Renta
- Barrington Hughes
The MLW contracted wrestlers are given the opportunity to continue working elsewhere. The deals are win/win for all involved and allow the MLW performers to take independent bookings and continue honing their skills.
