Former Lucha Underground Star Possibly Signing With WWE
It was previously reported that Lucha Underground has finally agreed to release Joey Ryan, Thunder Rosa (Kobra Moon), Ivelisse Velez & El Hijo del Fantasma (King Cuerno) from their contracts.
Because of that, there has been some speculation going around that King Cuerno will possibly be signing with The WWE in the near future. Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of The Wrestling Observer Radio Program that King Cuerno had an offer from WWE at one point. There is no word yet on if WWE still has interest in The Former AAA World Cruiserweight Champion, but it was assumed that the offer still stands.
Cuerno was reportedly offered a spot in The WWE Cruiserweight Classic back in 2016, but Lucha Underground & AAA would not allow him to enter.
Regarding Ivelisse possibly coming to WWE, Meltzer noted that she has had backstage issues with people in WWE in the past, which is why she is not there now. There has been no recent talk of Ivelisse possibly returning to WWE, but that could change as WWE looks to sign as many talents from the indies as they can. She was signed to a WWE developmental deal from 2011-2012, working under the name Sofia Cortez. She also worked WWE Tough Enough in 2011.
There has been some rumors that Lucha Underground is done and that there won’t be a fifth season, but that is not official yet.
