Hernandez at the center of TNA-Lucha Underground issue

According to a report from PW Insider, TNA has gotten itself into a bit of a pickle. The company recently signed and started using Hernandez at its Impact Wrestling tapings, with multiple episodes of the show already in the can for months to come.

There's just one problem with that: Hernandez is still signed to Lucha Underground and because of that, executives at the company don't want him appearing for TNA on its programming in any capacity.

Hernandez had joined the Beat Down Clan stable and shot multiple angles/matches for upcoming episodes of Impact. Because of that, TNA reportedly attempted to work out a deal to allow his appearances to be shown. They were apparently unable to do so, which means there will be heavy editing required to remove Hernandez from all upcoming broadcasts.

That's led TNA to completely drop the Beat Down Clan storyline, which means MVP and Kenny King will both disappear from television while the company figures out the best course of action. Hernandez, obviously, is now gone from TNA once more.
