We reported recently that Matt Riddle had dropped the EVOLVE championship to Shane Strickland. With Riddle supposedly moving onto bigger and better things, the company decided to focus on Strickland as their new top guy.
The WWE has recently shown interest in former and current Lucha Underground stars Angelico, Fenix, and Pentagon Jr., and it seems that they’ve also got their eyes set on Killshot, known in Major League Wrestling, Combat Zone Wrestling, and EVOLVE as Shane Strickland.
Dave Meltzer reported in a recent Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Strickland is someone the WWE has an eye on and will probably pick up when they get the chance.
However, he won’t be coming in any time soon, as he has just recently signed a lengthy deal with MLW, and EVOLVE has also stated that they plan on building their promotion around the King of Swerve.
