– Former WWE star Evan Bourne and his brother Mike Sydal have both turned down deals for the new El Rey Network Lucha Underground series that AAA is involved with. We noted before that The Young Bucks and Frankie Kazarian also turned down deals. Many wrestlers are hesitant to sign with the series due to the terms of the deal and the discrepancy in pay being offered to various talents.
Former WWE Tough Enough participant Martin Casaus has signed on for the series. Former WWE creative writer Chris “Big Dick Johnson” DeJoseph will be working on production for the series. Indie stars Ricky Reyes and B-Boy have also signed on for the project. El Rey previously announced Luchadores Fenix, Pentagon Jr., Sexy Star, Drago and Blue Demon Jr.
Other names confirmed to have been offered deals include John Morrison, Konnan, Hernandez, Ricochet, Joey Ryan, Candace LeRae, Rocky Romero, Scorpio Sky, Matt Cross and Ivelisse Velez. As noted, Chavo Guerrero was also offered a deal and is expected to wrestle as well as work backstage. Tapings begin this weekend so El Rey was trying to get a majority of the deals signed yesterday.
