NWA Florida issued the following press release to PWTorch.com...

The offices of NWA Florida are very proud to announce that The Shane Twins, Mike & Todd have been signed to a 3 year deal with World Wrestling Entertainment.

The Shane Twins have been tearing up Japan, Peru, Puerto Rico, Saipan and the entire indie scene for several years, and have been the flagship tag team of both IPW Hardcore & NWA Florida for 6 years. The Twins are also former NWA World, IPW, NWA Florida, and JAPW tag team champions.

NWA FL Vice President & Director of operations, Ron Niemithe long time manager of the Shane Twins was quoted as saying The Shane Brothers are not only the best tag team I have ever worked with but are like family to me. To see what kind of dedication they have inside and outside the ring for over 6 years now I can honestly say I don't know of 2 guys that are more deserving of this opportunity and I know they will make a HUGE impact in the WWE. I am the proudest I have ever been in my 13 years in this business and seeing my boys get signed makes me know everything that has been sacrificed and all of the hard work has been worth it. I am thrilled that Mr. Laurinaitis has given them this break and also want to thank Steve Keirn for all his help as well as Dean Malenko for training Mike and Todd when they first broke into wrestling. Congrats to Mike and Todd and their families, you deserve this!"

NWA Florida President Joe Price was quoted as saying I couldn't be more happy for Mike, Todd & their families. This is something that is very long overdue. When you have two guys their size that can fly around like a cruiserweight, chain wrestle with the best of them, and just the brute strength alone how can you go wrong. NWA Florida saw it and that is why they have been our champions for the better part of the past 3 years. Not only is this a great chance for Mike & Todd, but it also opens the doors for many of the NWA Florida talent which is simply the best in the country to be looked at seriously and get the positions in the majors they truly deserve!

More info regarding the Shane Brothers future with the WWE will be coming over the next few weeks!

NWA Florida stars were all over the WWE Smackdown tapings last night at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, FL. In a dark match new WWE signees the Shane Brothers beat former NWA Florida Heavyweight Champion Steve Madison and Shannon Moore in a very good match that got a great reaction for the crowd.

NWA Florida and Ring of Honor star Roderick Strong was the newest challenger in the Kurt Angle Invitational. The crowd was on fire during this match and it is highly recommended you watch WWE Smackdown tomorrow night on UPN to see this brutal encounter. Watch for NWA Florida Heavyweight Champion Bruce Steele and Antonio Banks as Angle's security during this encounter.
