When asked during a recent interview about his future in professional wrestling, Shawn Hernandez opted to divert attention to the fact that he is currently filming movies and television shows. The former TNA star also stated that he was not legally allowed to discuss the ugly contract situation that he and Lucha Underground were involved in last year.

When asked if he would make a return to Lucha Underground, Shawn Hernandez flat out stated that the ship has sailed on that. He has backstage heat with the promotion because of how they handled his contract situation with TNA. Hernandez really wanted to be with a bigger promotion, but he lost that chance when the controversy arose. The belief is that Hernandez will continue to work the independent wrestling circuit.
