As confirmed by Wrestling Inc, Daga was granted his release from IMPACT Wrestling yesterday.
It is understood that the Mexican star had approached management with his request earlier this year but the company had hoped to re-sign the talent and so put off letting him go. Attempts to persuade him to stay fell by the wayside.
Daga appeared on the Wrestling Inc. Daily Podcast in March 2019 to speak about whether or not he had negotiated with other promotions before settling with IMAPCT Wrestling. Most notably, AEW:
“Not really. My way into the States was a little different because when they did Lucha Underground I had a knee injury that took me outside the ring for a long time. I’m working with Impact now a couple of days, but I hope at one point I can be full-time. The only thing I want is to grow in the American market now.”
On his IMPACT Wrestling debut on February 1, 2019, the marvel was paired with Latin American Exchange in a loss to The Lucha Brothers and Taurus.
His time with the promotion was mostly highs and included being part of Team Lucha Underground in a bout against Team IMPACT at IMPACT Wrestling: United We Stand on April 4, 2019, teaming with Tessa Blanchard to best oVe on the October 11, 2019 edition of the weekly show, being part of the thriving X-Division scene and going to war with Rob Van Dam at IMPACT Wrestling: Hard to Kill on January 12 this year.
In his final IMPACT Wrestling appearance on April 7, 2020, Daga lost to Chris Bey.
A known and respected name on the independent circuit, Daga has appeared in major roles for Lucha Underground, Progress Wrestling and Triple A. He is also the real life husband of Tessa Blanchard.
Inside the Ropes wishes him the best of luck in wherever he decided to settle next.
