Major League Wrestling has hired former Lucha Underground co-Executive Producer and co-creator Chris DeJoseph, according to Sports Illustrated. DeJoseph ran Lucha Underground from 2014 until 2018, and also spent six years writing for WWE.
"Since the last season of Lucha Underground, I've had an itch to get back in the game," DeJoseph said. "I've been watching what they've been doing and the steps they are taking to keep building, and I can't wait to get my hands dirty with MLW. ... Look at that MLW roster—Alex Hammerstone, Brian Pillman Jr., the Von Erichs, Tom Lawlor, Davey Boy Jr.—you can go on and on, there are so many young stars. My job will be to help make them better performers and better characters."
