Lince Dorado was scheduled to appear for The Crash Lucha Libre at their upcoming Lucha Super Estrella event in Tijuana, Mexico. That appearance is now jeopardized, as Lince is refusing to work with the wrestlers he was booked with. This is not your normal pro wrestling, “ego” story, however.
Lince was booked for a tag team bout at the event where he was set to tag with Destiny. The opponents were Marty Scurll and Travis Banks. Both men have a history of sexual misconduct with minors.
Marty Scurll was effectively blackballed from American wrestling after admitting to having a sexual encounter with a 16-year-old girl. Travis Banks was involved in an abusive relationship with Millie McKenzie, who was just seventeen at the time. Banks was fired by WWE in 2020 after the allegations came to light. Lince Dorado took to Twitter to express his displeasure.
“I have asked @TheCrashLuchas to remove me from the show or change my match for their May event. Nothing else needs to be said. It’s my decision as I’m not influenced by anybody! They are working on it. Thank you LD”
Marty Scurll was with Ring of Honor at the time his accusations came out. Several members of the roster pushed for him to leave. Scurll stuck around for a while, but eventually, the sides parted ways.
The Crash has not yet responded to Lince Dorado’s request for a new match. It is not known if Lince will boycott the show if he gets a new set of opponents if Scurll and Banks are still featured. Even years later, these horrible acts continue to haunt Marty Scurll and Travis Banks.
