Shotcrete has been placed against fluid-applied waterproofing and other smooth surfaces, which would likely be similar to the surface you are concerned with. An experienced shotcrete contractor should be able to install this shear wall, taking care to apply the shotcrete in a sequence which inhibits the material from sagging or sloughing. The key is hiring a good, well-experienced shotcrete contractor.
The reinforcing bar size and spacing can help provide support for building up the shotcrete. The spacing should be no greater than 12 in. (305 mm) on center each way and must be rigid.
