Shawn Hernandez, who recently returned to TNA and became part of the Beat Down Clan, claimed that he was not under contract with any other wrestling promotion when he signed with TNA a few weeks ago.
However, after TNA taped several segments and matches with him, Lucha Underground (who he worked for just prior to signing with TNA) reached out to TNA claiming that he was indeed under contract with them.
He was not released from his obligations to Lucha Underground, therefore he could not legally appear on TNA broadcasts. TNA management attempted to work out an agreement with Lucha Underground that would allow the existing footage to be used, but Lucha Underground wasn’t interested and turned the offer down.
According to online reports, TNA intends to film material at their TV Tapings later this month so they can fill in the gaps where they remove Hernandez from future broadcasts.
