Report: Lucha Underground Star Offered New Deal

Lucha Underground reportedly offered Pentagon Dark a new contract recently, but with some very harsh language about where else he would be allowed to wrestle.

The Wrestling Observer reported a recent meeting between Pentagon, Vampiro and LU executive producer Eric Van Wagenen.

According to The Observer, Pentagon was offered a new contract promising a push as the promotion's top wrestler and a raise to $1,500 per match. However, if he signed, Pentagon would not be able to work for CMLL, Impact Wrestling, The Crash or any promotion that was affiliated with Konnan. Pentagon quit AAA, which is affiliated with Lucha Underground, earlier this year and joined fellow Lucha Underground star and real-life brother Fenix, among others, in jumping to The Crash. Pentagon quit using the Pentagon, Jr., name, which is trademarked by AAA, and started going by Penta El 0M on the independent circuit. 

The name change has not slowed down the opportunities for Pentagon, who continues to compete regularly for major independent promotions both in North America and overseas. 

Pentagon is not the only Lucha Underground star who recently quit AAA. Others include Fenix and Sexy Star.

Season 3 of Lucha Underground is expected to resume on May 31. No tapings have been set for the fourth season of the show.
