Report: Producer Chris DeJoseph Leaves MLW, Returns To WWE

Producer Chris DeJoseph is already leaving Major League Wrestling.

Mike Johnson at PWInsider reports producer Chris DeJoseph has left MLW. He informed MLW officials of his decision on Monday and he won't be working the Dec. 5 MLW Opera Cup television tapings.

DeJoseph is reportedly set to return to WWE on the creative side. He previously worked in WWE from 2004 through 2010, ending as a Senior Writer/Producer for the company. Talks with WWE reportedly happened before he signed with MLW. He could return to WWE as soon as the end of the month.

DeJoseph, who is the co-creator of Lucha Underground, joined MLW in October with his first day being at MLW Saturday SuperFight, which was MLW's first pay-per-view event on Nov. 2. At the time of his hire, DeJoseph told Sports Illustrated, "Since the last season of Lucha Underground, I’ve had an itch to get back in the game. I’ve been watching what they’ve been doing and the steps they are taking to keep building, and I can’t wait to get my hands dirty with MLW. Look at that MLW roster—Alex Hammerstone, Brian Pillman Jr., the Von Erichs, Tom Lawlor, Davey Boy Jr.—you can go on and on, there are so many young stars. My job will be to help make them better performers and better characters. So much has sprouted from the alternative universe of Lucha Underground. The wrestling world is exploding right now, and I’m looking forward to riding that wave.”

Fightful will have results from the Opera Cup as soon as they are made available.
