Another top independent star is saying goodbye as he gets ready to move on to WWE.
Former MLW World Heavyweight Champion Shane Strickland said goodbye to the fans and the crew at Friday night's DEFY Wrestling show.
Several members of the DEFY roster walked out and everyone sang his "Ain't Nobody" theme song before Strickland walked to the backstage area.
If he hasn't already, the belief is that he will sign with WWE soon. Typically, wrestlers are told to keep their signings quiet so that the company can announce it on their website. When he starts with WWE, he is expected to debut in NXT.
