He was involved in several Impact tapings with the BDC however Lucha Underground entered into a legal dispute with TNA preventing them from airing Hernandez on television. After he was released from TNA, the Beat Down Clan angle was slashed from television since the footage was unusable without Hernandez in them. It also led to the departure of MVP from TNA.
This week Lucha Underground announced that is returning for season 2 and will be taping in the next several weeks with kick off of season 2 in early 2016.
