As we wrote about last week, the next group of WWE signees will be announced in January. Among the names expected to be announced are Shane Strickland and Trevor Lee. Stickland will be finishing up with MLW at the TV tapings in Miami next month and Lee’s Impact Wrestling contract expires at the end of December.
PWInsider is reporting that WWE has a strong interest in New Japan Pro Wrestling/former Ring Of Honor star ACH. The belief is that he is WWE-bound as long as he passes the standard medical testing that everyone has to undergo before signing a contract. He will be among the names announced by WWE in January after he is signed.
Ring Of Honor did want to bring him back but a deal was not worked out so WWE appears to be his destination.
The 30-year-old has been wrestling since 2007 and has competed all over the world. In addition to NJPW and ROH, he has also wrestled in Mexico and he had a short stint with Impact Wrestling in 2017 as part of the Super X Cup during a set of TV tapings.
He is a former Evolve Tag Team Champion with Ethan Page and his excellent work could be seen recently in MLW.
