As we wrote about last night, lawsuits filed by wrestlers against Lucha Underground have been dropped and they have been granted their release from the company.
Ryan issued the following statement on Twitter after the news broke:
“It’s Official. I am now a free agent. Free from any contracts. Free from any bosses. Free from any restrictions. The last few years of my career haven’t been without highlights (being featured in many major media outlets, becoming a top seller on Pro Wrestling Tees, shocking the world at All In, Main Eventing the Cow Palace, a role on GLOW, the growth of Bar Wrestling) but now it honestly feels like I have a new lease on my direction and where I’m going in pro wrestling. Most of my accomplishments have been fan driven due to the overwhelming support I have received so I just wanted to take a moment to thank all the fans who have accompanied me on this journey so far and hope you will continue on the adventure.
– Joey Ryan”
Ryan has appeared on “Being The Elite” and is close with many people who work for All Elite Wrestling. It is widely expected that he will end up with AEW.
