An AroLucha Update Heading Into 2020

You probably haven't thought of AroLucha in a long time, but they say they're still around.

Fightful spoke with a source recently who indicated they had been released from their two-year deal early, at their request. There were no shows scheduled, and they hadn't received any word from the company outside of an odd CBD survey that AroLucha sent out to a mailing list. We were told the release was granted and amicable.

This led to Fightful reaching out to several sources on their status with the company. Former Fightful Podcast host Shane Helms noted that he had originally signed a one-year contract with AroLucha, and it simply expired. "Cowboy" James storm clarified that he was on a per-appearance deal without a contract, simply a handshake deal.

Another top name for Arolucha, when asked about their deal, the CBD e-mail and more said "Lol AroLucha. I didn’t get the email but I heard about that (with a facepalm emoji). Where’d everyone’s money go?"

AroLucha CEO Jason Brown responded to Fightful's request for comment about the status of the company recently, saying "We’re not running any live event (house shows) at the moment. We’re 100% focused on setting the television up and getting it produced, and that may take a bit. We’re not going anywhere, but we are taking our time and being strategic and opportunistic. "

Originally AroLucha featured John Morrison, Jack Evans, Rey Mysterio, Willie Mack, MVP, Taya and others.
