I'm going to Los Angeles at the end of June. Is there somewhere in that area where I can go see some matches live?

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.

I might do a separate thread for Lucha Libre World Cup happening today, unless someone else has already made one and I'm missing it.

It's a trios tourney:

Dream Team: Alberto El Patron, Rey Mysterio & Myzteziz (Sin Cara)
Team Mexico: El Hijo Del Fantasma, El Texano Jr. & Psycho Clown
Team MexLeyendas: Blue Demon Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr. & El Solar
Team “Rest of the World”: Drew Galloway, Angelico & Judas Mesias
Team TNA/Lucha Underground: Matt Hardy, Mr. Anderson & Johnny Mundo
Team ROH/Lucha Underground: Moose, ACH & Brian Cage
Team NOAH: Taiji Ishimori, Yoshihiro Takayama & Atsushi Kotoge
Team AJPW: Kenzo Suzuki, Tiger Mask III & Masamune

Should be pretty good!

For what it's worth, news sites are reporting that Dr. Wagner Jr's injury at the Lucha World Cup was a cervical sprain, and he's out for less than a month. Also still possible it's just a work to put heat on the Cage/El Patron match coming up, but either way it's good to hear that it wasn't anything serious.

Yeah when I read that report that didn't name names, I was thinking it might be Fantasma/Cuerno. With Konnan getting ousted and the focus on "legends" there he's not in a great spot, and while he's been positioned as a threat in LU, he's never really had a title shot type run. And I remember reading an interview somewhere where he learned English in part because he always wanted to break out somewhere other than Mexico.

Kinda wanna watch, but Josh Matthews is English commentary

I think you can still get the Spanish commentary if you get in via the Spanish version of the site. Which may be my strategy, I don't know. I handled Striker during that Triplemania disaster, I can probably deal with Josh Matthews.

Men's:

QF1: AAA vs Odo/Zero-One
QF2: NOAH vs Rest of the World
QF3: Mexican Legends vs Lucha Underground
QF4: Mexico Internationale vs TNA

could have predicted LU versus Legends -- the legends won't job clean so the American assholes will cheat a win somehow

There's a live feed! I see blurry darkened shapes and just heard a man say "Hello?" in a completely lost manner. The english feed seems to be complete potato quality compared to the spanish feed!

I'm really going to have to switch to the spanish feed because for some reason the english feed is complete poo poo quality

not that losing Josh Matthews is that much of a loss
