Lucha Underground sent us the following press release, stating that they parted ways with Shawn Hernandez.  Hernandez had been working for TNA after telling that company that he had already gotten his release.

As it turned out, he didn't and TNA was forced to cut out any segment with him in it from TV that they had taped. 

Lucha Underground announced earlier this week that they would be returning for a second season.
