Two Top Indie Stars Expected To Sign With WWE Soon

Russian Indie Star Ilja Dragunov could be signing with WWE soon, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Dragunov worked the recent WWE tryouts in Germany and would have been one of the top talents there, if not the best. He also worked a tryout camp in The UK. He recently started pulling out of indie bookings due to contractual reasons.

It is believed that Dragunov will be a top star of The NXT UK Brand, like WALTER, WWE UK Champion Pete Dunne & Moustache Mountain, in the sense that he will be a top star for that brand but he will also work regular NXT Shows in The United States at times. Dragunov has had notable indie matches with WALTER & Dunne.

Top Indie Star Shane Strickland (Killshot) is expected to sign with WWE soon as well. He recently confirmed on Twitter that he is now a free agent. Strickland had been trying to get a release from MLW & Lucha Underground to come to WWE.
