Lince Dorado has asked The Crash Lucha Libre to pull him from their upcoming show in May or make a change to his match after he was booked against two wrestlers who were accused during the #SpeakingOut movement.
The promotion announced via Facebook on Wednesday that the former WWE star would team with Destiny to take on Marty Scurll and Travis Banks at the May 13th show in Tijuana, Mexico.
Dorado took to Twitter today to note his request and mentioned that the promotion is working on it. “I have asked @TheCrashLuchas to remove me from the show or change my match for their May event,” Dorado wrote. “Nothing else needs to be said. It’s my decision as I’m not influenced by anybody! They are working on it.”

WWE released Banks in June 2020 following Millie McKenzie accusing him of being mentally ill and emotionally abusive towards her while they were in a relationship with her when she was a 17-year-old trainee. Banks is 13 years older than McKenzie.
Regarding Scurll, he had been working as the head booker for ROH until they announced last January that they and Scurll had “mutually decided to part ways.” This came after Scurll was accused by a woman that he sexually assaulted her when she was 16 years old in 2015. The former ROH star claimed the encounter was consensual between them and he didn’t know she was underage at the time. ROH later opened an investigation into wrestlers under contract with them who was accused during the #SpeakingOut movement.
