The number of wrestlers that have left independent wrestling to join WWE has created a void that needs filling. Matt Riddle and Keith Lee are among the independent wrestlers that have left the scene and there is a need to find a perfect replacement for them. There are so many potential independent wrestlers that are likely to fill this void and make a name for themselves.
Here is a list of some of the most potential independent wrestlers you should watch out for in 2019:
Filthy Tom Lawler
Tom Lawler has participated a lot on independent scenes where he’s performed for Black Label Pro and MLW, among others. He made a name for himself when he made a shift from MMA to join wrestling. His charismatic nature makes him stand out and if things go well for him and he lands a big promo, he’ll become one of the biggest names in the wrestling world.
It is just a matter of time and Filthy Tom will break out in independent wrestling.
Ace Romero emerged as a GIF star when someone posted a clip of him attacking Anthony Gains on the internet. The ease at which he is able to pounce guys in and out of the ring in the past puts him in the list of potential independent wrestlers.
Ace Romero is a student of Oney Lorcan, an NXT star which means he’s learning from the best. Despite being in wrestling for only 5 years, he’s been able to participate in several promotions such as CZW, Beyond, and Maine. He’s also become a regular in House of Hardcore, AAW, and MLW. With his size and ability to move with ease, he will soon become a star.
This 21-year-old is indeed a man to watch in the wrestling world. He’s been wrestling for only 3 years but what he’s achieved is commendable. You will not miss him in most indie promotions in the United States and Canada, a proof that he is doing very well.
Since his first year in wrestling, Myron Reed has been wrestling for IWA, OVW, and has also become a part of AAW. In the event that Trevor Lee and Shane Strickland leave AAW, he is the most potential candidate to take their place.
