I can confirm that they aren't sweetening the audio here, from the cooler spot on the crowd was absolutely losing their poo poo




Thanks brother! I wanted to know if I should either avoid spoilers, and I also gotta switch TVs to watch the match and this thread live at the same time too.

Tho if i were in the west coast, I'd just wait 3 hours to open the thread if i didn't wanna see any spoilers

Oh poo poo it looks like Ivelisse may have re-injured it already? I sure hope she's fake limping

It's definitely been more than 2 or 3 months since her injury right? (I don't know the taping schedule off the top of my head)

She's still in a cast (or hard boot here). This was taped back in April.

watching it live, I thought he was dead

like he was laying over there with blood coming out of his mouth for a really long time with doctors checking on him. Even Vampiro got up to check. Then the next day he was tweeting about working some indie show.

That's the worst I've ever felt about heels winning, I wanted those raggedy misfits to retain so badly

on the plus side, if we get a season 2 we're almost certainly going to see Angelico die on camera

My fears are coming to pass: Season 1 will end with Mil Muertes and Catrina standing tall over the Temple.

If we never get Season 2, the best wrestling show will end with the villains winning!

Thanks again! It just looked like she was still in a lot of pain, esp. outside the ring even with crutches. (I didn't see the hard boot until after I submitted that post)


I was rooting for Team Havoc, but I see that end as a decent lead-up to next season!

Were you there for Part 2 as a Believer as well? (tho not necessarily participating) ?

Yams Fan

So a few things about that match since I can talk about it now (some of this I said in the WWE Discussion thread):

We met with Hernandez, Drago, Chavo, and Chris DeJoseph before the match. DeJoseph and Chavo gave us the background that the fans hate Hernandez, he had stole a belt off a fan, etc. Hernandez told us that "the ONLY thing you can do that will piss me off is if you hit me like a fuckin baby," which actually gave me a lot of respect for him. And we were told to avoid the face and neck, and to be careful not to clip any fans in the stands. I don't think Drago speaks much English, he was mostly there nodding and working on his sick nunchucku skills. They gave us kind of the general structure of the match but it wasn't heavily planned out. Striker and Vamp also came through to briefly say hello.

After the match we followed Drago out via the stands and Chavo was backstage to shake everyone's hand and tell us we did great, which was really cool. Melissa the ring announcer also came over to high-five us and told us she would have been scared to hit Hernandez. It was a really insane experience, and everyone involved did a good job of making us feel comfortable with it.

Nope! This week and last week were taped together. I have no idea what goes down next week.

That was a loving AWESOME match!

StarkRavingMad -- I'd read your post in the WWE thread, but I thought it was from the last episode, not this one.


Question -- did any of y'all see Hernandez after the match? Despite his pre-match instructions, he was probably in a load of pain and a lil pissed off !!

Did not see him post-match, but I don't think he was actually pissed. Like he was very cool about everything before the show and if he hadn't been really specific with us that we were to beat the poo poo out of him, we would have been scared and trying to do dumb poo poo like pull our punches. There's two exits out of the arena, and we went out one way with Drago while he limped out the other, that's typically how they do it after a match, so he just wasn't going our way.
