Pro Wrestling Noah announced that former GHC Jr.and Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Shane Haste and Mikey Nicholls better known as “The Mighty Don’t Kneel” (TDMK) will be finishing up with the company in March.

It’s been heavily rumored that the Australian duo will be headed to NXT following their final appearances on the Second Navigation tour March 2-10. However as of this writing nothing has been officially been confirmed.

The pair attended a WWE tryout last June and impressed many with what they saw. TDMK deals expired with Pro Wrestling Noah and then returned home to Australia where Shane Haste had a knee surgery to repair his ACL and MCL.

Last December they made their debut with Pro Wrestling Noah’s owner New Japan Pro Wrestling appeared on the big Wrestle Kingdom 9 show going up against their rivals The Killer Elite Squad in six man action.

And while Shane Haste and Mikey Nicholls have made an impact internationally in Japan and Australia the last five years. They have made occasional appearances stateside in Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, Ring of Honor, Ohio Valley Wrestling and Impact Wrestling.

These two are really great workers inside the ring and barring any snafu with paperwork regarding international visas I wouldn’t see why WWE would not bring them in. But of course they have to go through the medical testing before any real contract can be offered.
