The air will continue to be rarefied as Richard Holliday has re-signed with Major League Wrestling. MLW CEO Court Bauer teased that two names came close to becoming free agents and one of them happened to be Holliday. MLW released the following announcement via their website:
Major League Wrestling today announced it has re-signed founding member of the Dynasty and Caribbean Champion Richard Holliday to a new multi-year deal.
Holliday first joined MLW in 2018 and quickly emerged as a premier competitor, winning the World Tag Team Championship and most recently claiming the Caribbean Heavyweight title in January of this year.
“Richard has become a staple of MLW and its telecasts, helping to lead the charge in representing the league as a world class homegrown athlete,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “He is a dynastic competitor with qualities you seldom find. MLW is ecstatic to continue to feature Richard Holliday for years to come.”
“Anytime you’re making a decision for your future, all aspects in regards to it must be considered,” said Holliday. “MLW checked all of the boxes in terms of opportunity, presentation, creative process, and upwards mobility. Other offers were presented, and of course taken into consideration, but remaining with MLW felt like the best decision for me.”
Trained by Paul Roma in Connecticut, Richard Holliday turned pro in 2015. Holliday, a college football offensive lineman, debuted in MLW in 2018.
