Backstage Update On WWE Signing Lucha Underground Star


Lucha Underground Star Shane Strickland was expected to sign with WWE in the next few weeks and start with the company in January next year, but it appears that his arrival will be delayed.

Strickland’s current contract is supposed to expire in near future however now Pwinsider is reporting that his signing could be delayed due to an issue with the contract. Though the site couldn’t elaborate what the issue is.

Shane was expected to end his tenure with MLW soon as well but after the recent report, it appears that he will be stricking around with the company for some more time.

Originally MLW’s Miami tapings scheduled for next week were expected to be his last working dates with the company. Although now he is also scheduled to work the company’s Philadelphia tapings on February 3rd.

For those who don’t know, so far Strickland has worked on four seasons of Lucha Underground where he wrestles under a mask using the name Killshot.

While he hasn’t won any championships there, Shane has won a number of titles on other promotions including the MLW and CZW World Heavyweight Championships.

No word yet on when the former World Champion will start his tenure with WWE but we’ll keep you posted.
