WWE announced that new signees Kushida, Shane Strickland (Stephon Strickland), and Garza Jr. (Humberto Garza) have reported to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. Read the official announcement at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: That’s an impressive trio of signings. The Kushida signing was previously announced. Strickland was the first MLW Champion of the company’s modern era and has been working toward signing with WWE for some time, but he reportedly had a previous holdup with a Lucha Underground contract. Garza Jr., the nephew of the late Hector Garza, worked for AAA in Mexico and also made several appearances for Impact Wrestling.
