Lucha Underground Officially Announces Departure Of Former TNA Star

Lucha Underground officially announced today that they have released Shawn Hernandez from his contract.

Hernandez had apparently left Lucha Underground and signed with TNA this past June, only for it to come out that Hernandez was still under contract to Lucha Underground.

Hernandez apparently has asked for his release from Lucha Underground, which was in the works, however it never went through. TNA stated at the time that Hernandez had told him that he was a free agent, and they eventually parted ways with Hernandez in July.

Below is the official press release from Lucha Underground:
