Three big stars are leaving MLW.
Lance Anoa’i, who teamed with his father Samu as The Samoan Island Tribe, is no longer with the promotion. Anoa’i is a former MLW World Tag Team Championship with his partner Juicy Finau.

In what might not be a coincidence Juicy Finau is also not part of MLW any longer.
As of today I’ve been released from @MLW
Just want to thank everyone I’ve crossed paths with while I was there. Extremely thankful to MLW for the opportunities!
IM NOW A FREE AGENT

Rumours are swirling that one or both could be heading to the WWE and perhaps joining The Bloodline since there are those family ties.
In other MLW release news, former MLW World Champion Alex Hammerstone is also moving on.
My time with @MLW was 5 of the best years of my life and career. Very proud of what I and the company accomplished. I wish them continued success.
I have recently asked for my release as I feel it’s what’s right for me at this time.
