Re: Lucha Underground

Was it weird attending a season 3 taping with only about a third of season 2 having been aired?

Re: Lucha Underground

A little bit, I looked up spoilers for the end of season 2 so u could have somewhat of an idea on current feuds and alignments.

Re: Lucha Underground

Tonight's episode was great after 2 episodes of mostly filler.

On a side note got my passes for the final taping of S3 confirmed today.

Re: Lucha Underground

I'm really behind this season, have only seen the first 3 eps. Going to binge watch a week or so before UL.

When you were VIP last time did you get to meet any of the talent or was it too close to/during show time? Definitely still very jealous. Outside of Wrestle Kingdom there isn't a live wrestling show I'd rather be at then LU.

About a week ago there were reports that the WWE wanted to sign Melissa Santos.

I really enjoyed last nights show as well. The trips match was excellent, and I felt the backstage vignettes were very well done too. Dario Cueto is just awesome.

I heard a spoiler yesterday afternoon that I don't know if it takes place in S2 or S3. Either way I hope it isn't true because it's really disappointing if it's true

If it's the one that came out of this last weekend's taping its s3 and it isn't long term.

I had the same reaction at first.

Yea the VIP area is a little furnished area set up in the temple with food and beverage service, with couches and a TV that shows highlights of S1 when they aren't taping and a live feed of the taping when it's going on.

Talent dips in and out of the VIP area I saw Johnny Mundo visit his friends who were at that taping and actually ended up meeting Willie Mack after my GF started up a conversation with a women who turned out to be Mack's GF. Mack wasn't working the taping we saw so he came in and hung out with us for like 15 minutes before we went to our seats.

Re: Lucha Underground

Here is something I forgot to ask on Hall of Fame night. Did anyone else see Sexy Star in the crowd at the Hall of Fame, or was I just going crazy?

Re: Lucha Underground

That's awesome because Willie Mack is awesome. Looking forward to you next TP.

That wasn't Sexy Star, it was Kalisto's wife or gf going along with his gimmick.

Awesome. I know we're way into the future, but any word if it's going beyond that? I'm afraid to google LU related things because of all the spoilers.

Annoyed I saw the S3 one that's been talked about recently.

Re: Lucha Underground

The only thing I know is that some guys have deals that extend as high as season 7 that the people running LU will not let them out of

Re: Lucha Underground

So good, Fenix is an unreal great seller.

Mil/Matanza was a really really good brawl.

According to The Wrestling Observer, several incidents took place at WrestleCon this year during WrestleMania weekend in Dallas.

The first incident involved Karen Jarrett and Lucha Underground announcer Melissa Santos, as Santos was heard complaining she didn’t have a seat to sit in, and somehow Jarrett got involved and reportedly spat on Santos. The incident almost came to blows between the two women, but things eventually calmed down and a fight was avoided. It was added that numerous people in attendance were criticizing Jarrett at the event.
Did you hear anything about this darO? Karen going back to her stripper days.

Re: Lucha Underground

Good news

Quote:
Lucha Underground reportedly made Puma a big offer last week, which would allow the promotion to retain “first dibs” on his services, however he would still be allowed to work non-televised indy dates and New Japan. The feeling is the total money he would be making from the offer would be more than what WWE would be willing to offer him, and accepting the LU offer would likely make Puma one of the highest paid non-ex-WWE talents in North America.

Puma and his girlfriend Tessa Blanchard were at the 4/23 and 4/24 Lucha Underground tapings and worked a dark match in front of the live crowd. While the impression given is that Puma will re-sign with Lucha Underground, the official word is that he is still negotiating with both LU and WWE.

Re: Lucha Underground



It would be nice if WWE didn't get everybody from the other federations.

I realize that maybe it's a bit hypocritical for me to say this and also get excited for Zayn/Nakamura on NXT, but I really wish for some legit competition in wrestling again.

Re: Lucha Underground

Just leave Pentagon/Fenix/Muertes/Cage/Mundo alone and I'm cool.

Re: Lucha Underground

I'd probably double or triple that list, but I see what you mean. It's really cool that there's not one or two "stars" and that they can pretty seamlessly adjust if a person leaves.

Re: Lucha Underground

Yeah I'm the same. I didn't think Puma leaving would hurt the show too much but I'd still rather seem him stay with LU than sign with WWE.

Re: Lucha Underground

I was pissed that when I saw that was the main event with about 20 minutes to go. Was pretty sure it was going to suck.

Holy **** was I wrong.
