Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik, both members of the vivacious and entertaining tag team, Lucha House Party, were released in the massive cuts made to the WWE roster on November 4th. This news (all of the releases, which include Nia Jax, Keith Lee and Karrion Kross), undoubtedly made the rounds and has trended and trended again all morning it would seem.

Many of the cut members of the roster have taken to social media since the news was announced, especially Nia Jax, who has publicly questioned the reasons given for her release, the company stating about her not wanting to get vaccinated. Lince Dorado however, is taking it all in stride. He made some statements regarding his release and he seems at peace with it, reports.

“It’s all good,” he said about being released. “I think if this would have happened a couple of years ago, I would have been destroyed. Honestly, I’m in a good state of mind. The people who know me, know how strong-minded I am. I’ve seen this coming, not just recently, but a few years back. All I can say is that I did my best. I never mailed it in. I tried every day I was there.

I suggested things. I loved my job and the people I worked with. I loved the crew who made me look like a superstar when I didn’t feel like a superstar. Never felt like a WWE superstar, but that’s nobodies fault. I’m very grateful for the opportunity that I was give. That I made for myself. This was all dream.”


He was even very gallant enough a human being to state that watching the product is still a must to anyone watching and listening.

“I got a lot of friends still in WWE that I know are going to kill it so keep watching and keep watching all the products. I want to thank my travel buddies, Reggie, Ricochet, Cedric, Shelton. Everybody. Everybody was mad cool and I was cool with everybody. Usos, Roman, New Day, Nattie, TJ, all the women I got to train with. I had a good time. Never a bad time in WWE.”

Dorado has been wrestling since 2007 and since that time has worked many promotions throughout quite the career: Chikara , F1RST Wrestling, RIOT Pro Wrestling, and so many others. His fans were distraught over his release but hopeful to see just where he would end up.
