It was previously reported that King Cuerno (aka El Hijo del Fantasma) has recently filed some legal documents in Los Angeles against The El Rey Network & Lucha Underground’s Production Baba-G Productions, claiming that his contract “illegally restricts” wrestlers from finding work in other wrestling promotions.
Aside from the lawsuit that was filed by King Cuerno, it was also said that a class action lawsuit was possibly in the works which involves other stars such as Ivelisse, Joey Ryan & Thunder Rosa (aka Kobra Moon), who were looking to get out of their contracts with the stalled out promotion. Despite being in between the production of season four & season five, wrestlers were still locked down to the promotion.
According to a new report from Lucha Central, The El Rey Network & Baba-G Productions were sent three lawsuits. Two of the lawsuits were reportedly from El Hijo del Fantasma & Texano Jr., both seeking financial damages and the third lawsuit was indeed a class action lawsuit that involved Fantasma, Ivelisse, Ryan & Rosa.
The report also stated that Texano Jr. withdrew his lawsuit and a settlement was agreed on for the class action lawsuit, which was in part of Fantasma also agreeing to withdraw his personal lawsuit against the companies. Exact terms of the agreement are still scarce at the moment, but those involved in the class action lawsuit were said to be released from their Lucha Underground contracts and are now allowed to sign with other promotions.
There is still no word yet on if a season five will be taking place, but Lucha Underground Co-Executive Producer Chris DeJoseph did comment last month and say that he thinks the show was “dead.”
