Name: Shane Strickland
Birthplace: Tacoma, WA
Aerial: Strickland is a aerial expert. He’s one of the top flyers in the game today. His movements are silky smooth and he has excellent body control in the air.
Appearance: Shane lacks that next-level size. He’s got a good frame, but is on the slender size. He’ll need to add some significant weight and muscle definition if he wants to compete in the heavyweight division.
Charisma: His Lucha Underground character, Killshot, had a very defined backstory. Unfortunately, that seems to have come to an end and Shane Strickland has much less direction. His personification of an overly-confident playboy is too generic for me. Nonetheless, he’s adequate on the microphone and has natural magnetism.
Power: Going back to his size, Strickland logically struggles with his power as well. It’s difficult for him to generate much strength from his slender build but he covers for it well. Clearly, adding some size would be to his benefit.
Technical: Strickland is very sound technically. He is well-versed in submissions and uses them to offset his aerial attacks. Likewise, he is as smooth in his transitions as he is off the ground.
Overview: Shane Strickland is one of the top prospects out there. He has a very solid all-around game. He’s solid in interviews, solid on the mat and well above average in the air. He needs to add some muscle and round-out his character a little further, to take it to the next level.
