Three more wrestlers seeking releases from Lucha Underground


Three Lucha Underground wrestlers are seeking legal representation to get out of their contracts, with a fourth possibly doing the same soon.

Lucha Central reports that Jeff Cobb (Matanza Cueto), Famous B and Sonny Kiss (XO Lishus) have all sought legal representation in order to secure their release from the promotion. Cobb in particular is an interesting situation as his character was killed off during the fourth season.

Cobb has since been wrestling for NJPW and Ring of Honor, while Sonny Kiss will wrestle at AEW's Double or Nothing Over the Budget battle royal.

Willie Mack was also mentioned in the report as a name that could be seeking legal representation as well, though he has yet to do so. He recently dropped the NWA National title this past weekend to Colt Cabana, with SoCal Uncensored reporting that LU/AAA’s Dorian Roldan threatened to send both ROH and NWA cease and desists over using Mack.

A class action lawsuit between the El Rey Network/Baba-G Productions (the show's network and the production company) and El Hijo del Fantasma (King Cuerno), Ivelisse, Joey Ryan and Kobra Moon (Thunder Rosa) was settled recently that allowed the four to get out of their contracts.
