Ivelisse and Kobra Moon released from Lucha Underground

After a long, heated battle with Lucha Underground, Ivelisse and Kobra Moon have been granted a release from their contracts. It’s been over a year and a half that these two women – along with El Hijo del Fantasma and Joey Ryan – have been “held hostage” – per Ivelisse’s own words in a since deleted tweet – by the El Rey Network and Lucha Underground’s production company, Baba-G Productions.

In documents obtained by Pro Wrestling Sheet, an attorney representing King Cuerno stated wrestlers claimed their contracts “illegally restrict[ed]” them from wrestling for other promotions. They had signed on for seasons four and five of Lucha Underground, but the company staled out in between the two seasons.

Ivelisse has been very vocal about her disappointment with the company and aired her frustrations back in January on social media. She recently addressed the feeling that her LU contract was preventing her from wrestling for IMPACT Wrestling. Ivelisse has worked with LU ever since season one while Kobra Moon, also known as Thunder Rosa, signed on with the promotion in season two.

They had filed a class-action suit with the company and after a long battle, their attorney Andre Verdun said that the wrestlers have won their battle and granted an immediate release.

“I’m honored to say that we received 100% of the relief that we were suing to obtain and four young talented wrestlers are no longer bound by an unfair contract that prohibits them from taking full advantage of their talents at the prime of their career,” said attorney Andre Verdun in a Fightful report. “I wish them all the best of luck.”
