Lumis is already taking bookings following his WWE release.

Dexter Lumis set for first appearance following WWE release

Dexter Lumis is wasting no time in getting back out there following his WWE release.

Lumis signed with WWE back in February of 2019 and spent his entire run with the company in NXT, from the black-and-gold brand to the 2.0 version that we see today. Throughout his time on NXT, he was a featured member of the show, and he became a popular character. Now, he's preparing for his next chapter, and his first post-WWE booking has been announced.

Dexter Lumis took his WWE release in stride last week

Dexter Lumis was among the ten names that WWE released on April 29. While many shared their thoughts with words on social media, Lumis took a different approach.

The former NXT Superstar sent a tweet out to Vince McMahon, Triple H, and Shawn Michaels to show off a painting he recently did of Mr. McMahon. He then did his trademark blank stare and gave the viewers a thumbs up.

For those who remember his previous character in IMPACT Wrestling, Samuel Shaw, there isn't much deviation that and the Dexter Lumis character we saw in NXT. This tweet seems to confirm that the same gimmick is going to continue going forward.

What are your thoughts on Samuel Shaw already getting booked on the independent scene? Do you see him landing in another big company at some point this year? Let us know your thoughts by sounding off in the comments section below.
