Lucha Underground films in the LA area but their schedule is unknown until they announce a taping. Follow their Twitter (@LuchaElRey) and email them for tickets if they announce that there will be an event while you will be in town. Tickets are free, but there aren't very many, so you need to be a little quick on the draw.

April tapings announced: April 11, 12, 18, 19.

If you want tickets, email LuchaTickets@gmail.com with full name, phone number, email address, requested date of filming, number of people in your group (limit 4).

i watched lucha tube today and Sin Limite is pretty loving cool as a show, I don't understand a lot but I loving love Psycho Clown

And as always make sure you watch Lucha Underground because it's the best weekly show with the best non-wrestling personality

Ninety-one? There are ninety other "Tiger Drivers"? Do any involve actual tigers, or driving?


Burt Buckle posted:

Lucha has a much much heavier emphasis on tag, trio, and 4 man tag matches compared to WWE, and in lucha you don't have to tag out, if you just leave the ring or get thrown out of the ring your partner can come in. It makes for a much more frantic pace.
Also in CMLL (and a lot of other non-AAA places) everything that isn't announced as a lightning match is usually 2/3 falls. Trios teams have a captain that is announced before the match, if you pin / submit him the fall is over, if not you need a second pin / submission on someone else to win the fall. That's why you often see falls end with multiple pins or submissions at once.

I know kayfabe is dead and all but the way CMLL has the multiple pins or submission happen at the same time seems unrealistic and lazy.

I've been watching some Sangra Chicana matches and I'm pretty sure one of his signature moves is a double pin, which is probably the best "gently caress you" move ever.

Edit: Also, could someone explain what is going on with La Sombra. Every time I see him he seems to get progressively more insane and I'm not even sure if he's a rudo or not.

Cool, hopefully we'll get a defense against Kamaitachi and then a hair match so he can get all that hair shaved off

I also hope Dragon Lee gets booked in the states at some point, dude is just nuts and seems like he would mesh well with most of the American indy guys

Good lord the Ref in the Rey de Reyes Final was awful and really took away from the finish for me with that fast count.

It's puro but this year's Great Space War (Michinoku Pro's annual Big Dumb Gimmick match usually featuring Sasuke) was Sasuke, the Brahman Bros and Ultraman Robin vs four ninja turtles. It's almost 50 minutes long, took place in Korakuen and got pretty epic, especially if you like Crazy Old Man Sasuke going nuts.

AAA this week was a best of from Rey de Reyes and man, that old guy match was better than I remember

they showed:

fenix/el hijo del fantasmo (king cuerno)
old guy match

and now theyre doing the 4 way with psycho clown and then the rey mysterio/dead dude 4 way

this card was good and remember, lucha tube leads directly into lucha underground and then nxt on wooo! (LU and onward also at taima.tv/r/woooalt which also doesnt have image macros)

AAA made the official announcement on 4/21 that the World Cup would be a major show on 5/24 at the Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City, which holds about 20,000 fans. They announced teams coming from ROH, TNA, All Japan and Pro Wrestling NOAH. Thatís notable because All Japan and NOAH donít work together and ROH and TNA donít either, and AAA is pretty much the partner of Lucha Underground. Itís also notable that they are working with both TNA and ROH, but not GFW, since Jeff Jarrett has worked for AAA for years and listed AAA as one of his partners in promotional material. The Ticketmaster site lists names like Matt Hardy, Taiji Ishimori, Dr. Wagner Jr. and Johnny Mundo as appearing. Wagner & Blue Demon Jr. are expected to be two of the three legends of the Mexican team. AAA will have two teams, one coming out of the next two television tapings, and the other being the dream team of Rey Mysterio Jr. & Alberto El Patron & Myzteziz.

Cool to see Mundo making an appearance

Cubsfan just posted the Fenix/Hijo Del Fantasmo match and it was pretty good.

Also, Alberto is Rock levels of over in Mexico. Kids were jumping the railing just to give him a hug and touch him.

surprised they have ROH and the Dream Team meeting in the second round and not the finals kinda given the Patron/Cage matchup

I presume ROH and TNA don't want to wrestle each other which means TNA has to lose in the first round

edit: unless you have some Cage shenanigans to put ROH over the Dream Team and build that singles main event but that would be pretty surprising I'd think!!
