Luchasaurus Says Injury Led To Him Being Killed Off Of Lucha Undeground

AEW's Luchusaurus was recently interviewed by Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio. You can see the full interview at this link, and submitted highlights below. 

Being murdered/killed off on Lucha Underground Season 4: 
"Well, it wasn't supposed to happen. What had happened is I had a match I was really happy with against Johnny (Impact) Mundo. It was kind of the culmination of everything I was working towards for 2 years between season tapings. Then, the next night I do a run in, freak accident, I tear my bicep getting clotheslined out of the ring. So, they had to cover. So, they killed me off. They were going to bring the character back if there was another season. But, it was really disappointing to be killed off right when I felt I was at the height of my career with Lucha Underground. But, it actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise because my entire style in the ring changed after that and I started to incorporate what I do now which is more martial arts and I've become known for a lot of the kicks that I do. It has kind of set me apart a little bit. It is one of the reasons AEW is interested. I couldn't really train the way that I had been training. So, I started kicking, learning the drills until I perfected it. It just opened up new pathways in the ring for me."
