According to PWInsider, Hernandez has already been cut from the TNA roster after returning just a few weeks ago. This is due to the possibility of Lucha Undergroundtaking legal action.

Several scenes and segments that have already been filmed have been pulled from upcoming TNA broadcasts to make sense of his cut.

TNA signed Shawn Hernandez, who had indicated to the company that he was contractually free and able to sign a new deal. Hernandez made several appearances at the June television tapings, filming well over a month of angles.

Lucha Underground later contacted TNA and said that Hernandez is still contractually attached to the brand, and that he couldn't appear on any more episodes of Impact. TNA tried to pay Lucha Underground to allow them to use the scenes that had been filmed, but Lucha Underground rejected.

It's being said that due to this issue, the BDC's storylines are done for the time being, as it would be too difficult to get around Hernandez in the shots. TNA will replace that footage with existing footage.

I don't think Hernandez wasn't being honest with TNA. I'm sure he knew exactly what his contract with with the other company and felt he could get away without looking so foolish.

Hernandez TNA - Lucha Underground Update

As we reported earlier this week, Hernandez has been released by TNA Wrestling after a contractual dispute occurred between the company and Lucha Underground.

PWInsider reports that Hernandez was hired after a strong recommendation by MVP to be added to his BDC stable. TNA management went along with the request and brought him in.

TNA sources told PWInsider that Hernandez told the company he was free from any contractual obligations to Lucha Underground. TNA made him sign an agreement saying that he presented himsel as a free agent.

Lucha Underground sources said that Hernandez asked for his release, which was in the works, but didn't go through. The company was fine with him taking outside bookings, but didn't want him to appear on another company's television until after Ultima Lucha, which airs on August 5. Hernandez instead told TNA he had a verbal release and provided documentation that they were in contact.

TNA told Hernandez they would be glad to use his footage if he wanted to pursue legal action, but when the deadline they gave him came and went, they released him from the promotion. TNA told PWInsider that they offered Lucha Underground money to use the scenes they'd already filmed with Hernandez, but Lucha Underground is denying that ever happened.
