Update on WWE signing Lucha Underground Star

Indie Star Shane Strickland was expected to sign with WWE in the coming weeks and report to the performance center in January, though it appears that his arrival will be delayed.

Pwinsider is reporting that while his current deal is set to expire soon, there are some issues with his contract which will prevent Shane from signing with the company in the expected time.

Lucha Underground fans may know Shane as Killshot, with his gimmick being of a military vet who carries dog tags to honor the memories of his fallen comrades.

Apart from Lucha Underground, he is also a top star for the Major League Wrestling Promotion where he has held the World Championship as well.

Strickland was expected to end his tenure with MLW after their next week’s tapings in Miami but now he is also expected to work their February tapings.

No word yet on when he may sign with the company now but we’ll keep you posted on his status.

    You strike me as the kind of person who would complain about millenials all being “too sensitive”, yet you are claiming acting is a criminal offence if your character is a military vet. That’s sad.

    I… don’t think it’s a federal crime to play a military veteran on a fictional TV show.

    If it is, I think there’s some far bigger name actors who need to be arrested.

    Did you get this angry about Arnold Schwarzenegger playing a vet in Commando? It’s a work of fiction. Lucha Underground is a work of fiction. It also has literal gods possessing people, time travel, a guy who is a dragon trapped in a human body, and whatever Matanza is.

    It’s not stolen valor, it’s acting. Calm down.

    That is my point. If this goes further with Millennial’s nowadays, who knows what we may see on the streets further.

  • Um…

    Wrestling is fake. Sgt.Slaughter was not really a Sargent. None of the Misfits in Action were commissioned officers.

    I don’t like the gimmick as a vet. False Valor is everywhere and if his gimmick was seen as a “real” thing, more people would think it as alright to invest in tactical gear or A.C.U. for the purpose of making money off of a false identity. It is also a Federal Crime. So, what gives?
