Konnan is no longer a part of The Crash Lucha Libre.
The promotion confirmed through PWInsider that Konnan was no longer a part of the promotion due to not complying with Crash's code of ethics. He was let go this past Thursday after a locker room meeting and it was decided not to announce it until now so that it wouldn't distract from the Crash's events over the weekend. The statement reads as follows:
The Crash Lucha Libre brand is known for the way we treat people and value each and every single person that works in this company. Bettering the economical and habitual needs. Showing the support for each element and giving opportunity to new talent.
In this way, the value and professionalism shown between each of its partners.
Not being able to comply to the Crash Lucha Libre code of ethic, is something that we do not tolerate in this company.
With that being said, We not announce that Carlos Santiago Espada "Konnan", will no longer be working with The Crash.
We thank him for the time and support and wish him the best in his future endeavors.
We will be announcing the dates for 2018 with the best matches and our debut in the United States.
It will be interesting to see what this means for the future of the Crash and Impact Wrestling relationship, as Konnan was the one who helped establish the working agreement. It was already an interesting collaboration as Impact also has a relationship with AAA, who has bad blood with Konnan after their falling out a few years ago.
Konnan is still set to be head booker of the Aro Lucha promotion, which will start taping shows on December 10.
