Biff Busick will soon be back in action. The former Oney Lorcan was announced today as taking part in wXw's 16 Carat Gold tournament in March 2022. 

Busick was released from his WWE contract just yesterday after spending over six years with the company. Busick revealed in a YouTube video that he has a 90-day non-compete clause to wait out before he can return to the ring.

Busick held NXT Tag Team Championship gold from October 2020 to March 2021, before an injury to partner Danny Burch forced the duo to relinquish the titles. 

The list of past 16 Carat Gold tournament winners reads like a who's who in terms of international stardom. NXT UK Champion Ilja Dragunov, Zack Sabre Jr., Malakai Black, Chris Hero, Sami Zayn, Sami Callihan, WALTER and IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Shingo Takagi are all past 16 Carat Gold winners. 

The 16 Carat Gold will be held from March 4 to March 6, 2022 in Oberhausen, Germany. Jonathan Gresham, Ace Romero and Fuminori Abe have also been announced for the tournament.
