Lucha Underground just finished their fourth season on El Rey. There is no word on when, or if, the promotion will return to the network. Strickland worked under the name Killshot and lost a mask vs. mask bout against Son of Havoc at Ultima Lucha Cuatro. Following the bout, he was "relieved from duty." 

While he waits for his LU contract to be resolved, Strickland will continue to work for MLW. He is scheduled to be part of their Dec. 13 and 14 tapings in Miami. He is also being advertised for MLW's Superfight tapings in Philadelphia on Feb. 2. On a recent edition of MLW Fusion, Strickland, in storyline, expressed his frustration with Court Bauer and MLW.
