I love the way El Rey showcases Lucha Underground. It's like what TNA fans think Spike Destination America Pop will do.

Are you sure I'm winning the Rumble? That does'nt seem right.....

So, any idea if Lucha Underground will be legally viewable in Australia this season?

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

Well, it helps being on a tiny network that only has two other shows that are original programming and is desperate as gently caress to fill airtime with anything it can get its hands on.

POP isn't huge either but even they are currently running 10 original shows.

Nothing new announced yet. Right now the only options that I am aware of are El Rey itself on cable, Sling.com, and fubo.tv. Maybe you could VPN a fubo account or something but I can't imagine that is a satisfactory solution. They keep saying there's some big deal about to break behind the scenes but nothing has come down yet.

Taking the matches off Youtube is a pretty big pointer that they've worked out some sort of streaming deal.

Not necessarily. Never underestimate the ability of people to sit on IP because reasons. Now to be fair I'm more inclined to give LU the benefit of the doubt, but still.

Yeah I'm hopeful that's what it means, but there's definitely other things it could be. Hell, they might just not want all the main event matches up on their YouTube channel right before they do this big marathon on the tv station next month.

I really wish there was a legal streaming option for El Rey. I had Sling but it was wholly unreliable, and it's not available on Playstation Vue. Bummer.

Yeah this is where I'm at. It's not even available on Fios. I'd pay for whatever lovely package they put it on too.

I just got an email saying that Fubo is going to raise their price to $9.99 a month on Monday. If you sign up before, you'll keep the $6.99 rate.

You get to keep the $6.99 rate forever, or just for the month where it changes?

I'm not sure. The page says "Get fubo PRO before the price change on Monday! Only $6.99 per month." so I'd guess it means you're grandfathered in.

Just asked on Twitter and you get the $6.99 price for a full year before kicking over to $9.99.

I'm guessing maybe that's Killshot? No one else has appeared yet who fits that bill that I can think of.

Non-spoilery stuff first: Apparently LU picked up new sponsors in Cricket Wireless and Autozone, or at least that's what some new posters said. Probably good news for the finances. They had a full bar in the back tonight for the first time this season.

Big names there tonight, maybe because of Rey's first night or maybe because deals are being struck. Robert Rodriguez himself was there. Mark Burnett was there. Other important looking people in suits were there touring around. Lot more folks coming through the VIP than usual. DANNY TREJO was back in the house.

oatgan posted:

Other new face was Dragon Azteca Jr., being played by I have no fuckin idea who. Dude seemed pretty good though, moves kind of like a mix of Ricochet and Killshot, he's tall (for this promotion) and very quick.

New heel is yes, as some have guessed, THE MONSTER MANTANZA CUETO, played by (I will put this in a separate spoiler in case you don't want to know.......He's all masked up so I can't be totally certain but I am 99% sure it's Jeff Cobb, who has worked a couple dark matches this year. He seems a good fit for it, he's built like a barrel and he has a really good power moveset.

That was dope as gently caress. I love that Aerostar has an Arc Reactor in his chest now. I don't know who the military guy is but a balaclava as a lucha mask is a pretty brilliant idea.

Nice to see PJ "Justin "Cape Town "Darewolf" Werewolf" Gabriel" Black in the mix too. Looks like he's with Jack Evans?

Would make sense, AAA has shown that Jack's at his best when he has a flippy South African by his side.

I am the sexiest poster in the world!



Even with a bit of help, Puma/Ricochet doing that full kick/flip/somersault combo is insane. Like, for a glorious moment he was literally Forrest Law. I'll never stop laughing that the story is that he was at WWE, everyone was freaking out that he was there and huge fans of him, and their response wasn't to immediately throw him a modest bag of money and toss him into NXT. They really need a guy willing and able to do crazy aerial stuff too, the closest they have now is Rollins. If he keeps going like he has been I think he'll go down as a freaking legend in the indies when he finally hangs up the puma mask.
