WWE Reportedly Breaking Up Current Faction

The current plan in WWE is to breakup The League of Nations in the near future, and apparently the group getting rid of King Barrett was said to be the beginning of the end of the WWE faction.

It’s unclear what WWE has planned for Sheamus, Rusev and Alberto Del Rio, but it is believed the group will not be together much longer. As for Barrett, it’s very possible WWE keeps him off TV until his contract expires, as he notified officials earlier in the year that he does not plan to re-sign once his deal is up.

Backstage News on Why a Top Lucha Underground Star is Unable to Sign with WWE

We previously noted that a top Lucha Underground star had expressed interest in signing with WWE, and that name appears to be King Cuerno, aka El Hijo del Fantasma.

Cuerno reportedly wanted out of AAA and Lucha Underground so he could sign with WWE, but he is currently under a 7 year contract with LU and officials would not grant him his release. It’s likely Cuerno will be returning to Lucha Underground soon as he returned to AAA last week.
