Dexter Lumis announced for post-WWE indie appearance

Lumis is set for an Atomic Revolutionary Wrestling show on Friday, June 24.

After being released by WWE last Friday, the former Dexter Lumis (Samuel Shaw) has already started booking indie appearances.

Atomic Revolutionary Wrestling has announced Lumis for their Born in Blood show in Melbourne, Florida on Friday, June 24. The event is a taping for Fite TV.

Lumis was among 10 people released by WWE during a set of NXT roster cuts last week.

In storyline, Lumis was the husband of Indi Hartwell in NXT. Hartwell & Lumis and Pirotta & Duke Hudson were involved in an angle where Hartwell and Pirotta debated who the hottest couple in NXT was.

Pirotta was also released by WWE in last Friday's cuts.

Lumis' final match for WWE took place on the April 19 episode of NXT. Pretty Deadly retained their NXT Tag Team titles against Lumis & Hudson.

Lumis tweeted after he was released:

Lumis signed with WWE in February 2019. Before joining the company, he spent time wrestling for the NWA and Impact Wrestling.
