Just one month after MLW announced his hiring, Lucha Underground co-creator Chris DeJoseph has already parted ways with the company. 

PWInsider reports DeJoseph pulled out of this week’s TV tapings and informed MLW last night that he’s done with the promotion. We’ve since independently confirmed his exit.

It’s unclear what caused the producer’s sudden departure.

DeJoseph began working as a co-Executive Producer for MLW at the company’s SuperFight pay-per-view earlier this month. Prior to that, he worked on Big Brother and was part of the creative force behind Lucha Underground. He also worked with MLW’s Court Bauer on the WWE creative team.

UPDATE: According to PWInsider, DeJoseph has been re-hired by WWE to join the creative team. He previously worked there from 2004-2010.
