Four Lucha Underground wrestlers released as part of settlement


Four Lucha Underground wrestlers have been given their releases after filing a lawsuit over their contracts.

Lucha Central reported last night that El Hijo del Fantasma (King Cuerno), Ivelisse, Joey Ryan, and Thunder Rosa (Kobra Moon), who were involved in a class action lawsuit against Baba-G Productions and the El Rey Network, will be immediately released and will become free agents as part of a settlement.

The class action suit and Fantasma's separate lawsuit have also been dropped as part of the agreement. Lucha Central noted that El Texano Jr. withdrew his lawsuit prior to the settlement and is expected to remain with AAA.

Fantasma departed AAA this month.

Fantasma, Ivelisse, Ryan, and Thunder Rosa have all confirmed the news of the settlement.

“I’m honored to say that we received 100 percent of the relief that we were suing to obtain and four young talented wrestlers are no longer bound by an unfair contract that prohibits them from taking full advantage of their talents at the prime of their career,” attorney Andre Verdun told Lucha Central. “I wish them all the best of luck.”
