X-Pac Speaks on Lucha Underground’s Problematic Contracts


This week on Sean Waltman‘s Podcast, Sean commented on Lucha Underground and their contracts. The former 1-2-3 Kid compared their contract situation to his first WWE deal from 1993:

“‘When you’re in a situation where you don’t really have leverage, you either kinda sign the boilerplate fn contract, or you don’t. It’s just like when I first went to WWE in 93’ and they sent me that contract, I was either signing it or I wasn’t. And so I can understand why they {the talent} do that {sign}…. Even if they {LU} were trying to {come back}, you’re creating such bad will with anyone, you just don’t want that poison in the water supply of the talent that’s already there or that you’re forcing to stay there…These contracts and these non-compete clauses if they’re challenged in court I am pretty sure for the most part the talent can win that but that means you gotta fight it, that means you gotta have money for a lawyer. Also when a potential employer sees that it’s too much of a pain in the ass to fuck with {the contract} and some people don’t even want to mess with those guys because they’re tangled up in that. And it’s such a shame.”
