Lucha Underground officially announced today that they have parted ways with Hernandez. His release comes off the heels of a very controversial summer for Hernandez in which he was not legally able to appear at TNA’s tapings in June, even though he told them that he was free. This lead to TNA having to make major edits to their broadcast.
