Someone will be interested. While WWE and AEW receive most of the attention, there are still some outstanding wrestlers outside of the major two companies. It can be a lot of fun to watch these stars come up through the ranks and showcase their skills, and thanks to modern technology, it is happening more than ever before. Now we are seeing one such wrestler hitting the free agent market.
Former Major League Wrestling World Champion Filthy Tom Lawlor has announced that he is officially a free agent. Lawlor posted to Twitter, thanking Major League Wrestling for the last four years. There is no word on where Lawlor will sign next, though he is currently the New Japan Pro Wrestling Strong Champion. Lawlor has been with Major League Wrestling for the last four years and is a former UFC fighter.
As of today, I am a free agent in the world of professional wrestling. Thank you to @mlw @courtbauer @MSL @beINSPORTSUSA for the time & effort they put in with me. But mostly I’d like to thank the MLW staff, wrestlers past & present, and fans for the 4 years of memories! #mlw

You might need to get used to him. Check out Lawlor in action:
Opinion: I can imagine Lawlor getting a big spot in a company somewhere, as he has improved by leaps and bounds. If nothing else, the mixed martial arts background will be more than enough to give him a chance and he has the professional wrestling experience to back it up. That is going to be enough to get him a shot and it should be interesting to see where he winds up.
Where do you think Lawlor will go? Where do you want him to go? Let us know in the comments below.
