Lucha Underground Talent Claims She’s Being “Held Hostage” By Contract


Two-time Trios ChampionĀ Ivelisse has been with Lucha Underground since 2014. However, in that time, it turns out she hasn’t been very happy with the promotion. She took to Twitter recently and voiced her frustrations, saying Lucha Underground is holding her “hostage” in her contract after promising to release her, upon request, several times. Here’s what she had to say:

“For a bit over 1 1/2 [years] now I’ve been battling LU to grant me my release. They convinced me to do S4 under the promise that I’d be released after the season concluded and was still unhappy. They currently are still refusing to do so despite having been told numerous times that they would.

“This has caused me an unbearable amount of grief for so long now… being legally held hostage while Pro Wrestling is booming is a matter not to be taken lightly… I am at my wits end, so at this point, regardless what happens from here on out, at the very least my story is told.”

A fan responded by saying other promotions, like WWE, also hold talents hostage with contracts. ButĀ Ivelisse said that’s comparing apples to oranges:

“You are comparing apples to oranges. LU is NOT a Wrestling Company. It is merely a TV Show, one that films randomly without guarantee, theres is NO comparison at all.”
