Former MLW World Heavyweight Champion Shane Strickland said goodbye to DEFY Wrestling on Friday night at an event when he told the fans in attendance that it would be his final appearance for the promotion. He added that he’s moving on to bigger and better things, according to PWInsider.

Back in January, he announced on his Twitter account that he’s now a free agent after being able to fulfill the rest of his Lucha Underground deal after season four.

There have been rumors that he could be headed to the WWE as the company has an interest in signing him. Strickland is also a former EVOLVE Champion and it’s no secret that WWE and EVOLVE have a working relationship.

Strickland will be working the next two EVOLVE shows. EVOLVE Tag Team Champions The Street Profits vs. two members of The Unwanted (Eddie Kingston, Joe Gacy, Colby Corino & Strickland) will take place at EVOLVE 123 on March 15th at the Melrose Memorial Hall in Melrose, Mass.

At EVOLVE 124, Strickland, Kingston & Gacy will take on Dream & The Street Profits the following night at the La Boom in Queens, N.Y.
