World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is currently high on recruiting some Lucha Underground talent. The company is set to launch its Global Cruiserweight Series and needs talent for it to become successful.

King Cuerno (El Hijo del Fantasma) of Lucha Underground was keen on signing for the American promotion. However, owing to his seven-season deal with the Mexican promotion was not allowed to move forward with his wish. Cuerno wanted to leave Lucha underground but is rumored to be back soon fighting for the Mexican wrestling show after appearing on Asistencia Asesoria y Administracion (AAA) last week, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Meanwhile, the WWE universe may soon be without the stable “The League of Nations” as the company is planning on disbanding the group. The rumor mills have started flooding since King Barrett was dismissed. However, no official word is released on the futures of Rusev, Sheamus or Alberto Del Rio, the three other members of the faction.

In another news, a fan who was unable to view WrestleMania 32 on his Amazon Fire TV via the WWE Network wrote a letter to the company asking for a refund. However, the wrestling promotion replied back citing no refund policy under its terms and conditions.

Europe seems to be a deathbed for WWE in terms of injuries as the company has a fair share of its superstars injured during its tour to the continent. Bray Wyatt was the latest casualty in the long list of injuries Vince McMahon’s promotion has faced since 2015. Wyatt was working a match with WWE world heavyweight champion Roman Reigns at Milan, Italy when the “Eater of the Worlds” clutched his leg after slipping on the mat. He had to be carried on shoulders to the back, according to Inquisitr.

Bray Wyatt joins the likes of Seth Rollins, John Cena, Randy Orton and Cesaro who are all nursing injuries. Luke Harper is also out of the picture with AJ Styles escaping an injury scare at the same event where Wyatt got injured.
