Shane Strickland & Garza Jr. Joining WWE

Shane Strickland Garza Jr

WWE will add two more top indy talents to their ever-expanding roster.

Per a report from Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer, Garza Jr and Shane Strickland have both signed deals with WWE and will be reporting to the WWE Performance Center on April 9.

Garza was supposed to join the company last year but his deal fell through when he suffered a shoulder injury, which made him fail the WWE physical test. He was offered a new deal and this time was succesfully able to pass the test.

Garza will be making his last appearance at The Crash show on Saturday in Tijuana.

On March 8 at a DEFY Wrestling event, Shane Strickland said goodbye to fans and said it would be his last appearance, and said that he’s moving on for “better and bigger things.”

WWE has shown interest in the past for the former MLW Champion. He declared himself a free agent in January after being able to fulfill the rest of his Lucha Underground deal.

It would be interesting to see how these top indie stars fare in WWE and how the company handles them.
