In a recent interview with Muscle Man Malcolm, Lance Anoa’i discussed several topics, including his decision to sign with Major League Wrestling.

“I was very hesitant about signing, they offered me a deal a few years ago, it was a little too long for me, but once I took a hard thought about it and saw the success, how well they are doing, especially with Jacob there, I just wanted to be a part of it.

After I contacted them about doing Philadelphia and they said, we want you long-term, the rest is history. I just signed a multi-year deal and I’m ready to rock and roll.

I was down for a little bit because as some people know, I had shoulder surgery in December, I had a torn rotator cuff, torn labrum and bicep, it was a long recovery and I had a lot of time on my hands, thinking like, I don’t know, honestly, I was calling it quits after another year or two if I wasn’t getting signed.

I wasn’t pressured into signing with MLW, but once they offered me the contract, this is what I want to do, I’m going to start making a bigger name for myself, carry on the family legacy and from there, who knows, maybe I re-sign after a few years, or who knows what happens from there.”
