Son of Havok, Ivelisse, and Angelico which are "disfunctional mismatched underdog losers won it all." Setting aside all the crazy gimmicks, they stick to fairly basic wrestling principles.

Also they're bikers, though one of them is more into motocross than Harleys.

This was discussed in the WWE thread, but probably worth putting here as well

Wrestling Observer posted:

Angelico and Jack Evans did an interview with PlanetaDeporte in Spain and said they had twice been approached by WWE officials to see if there was interest in signing, but they both agreed they wanted to stick with Lucha Underground for as long as it continued to exist. They noted that they'd been approached during a PWG show. It's no secret that there are WWE office people who regularly attend most of the PWG shows.

Good guys

Yup! He's an executive producer and one of the three writers. People don't realize it but he was WWE creative back when he was Big Dick Johnson. In fact, he ended being BDJ because they were coming up the concept in the writers' room (I think it was originally a prank played by DX on Vince to have a fat male stripper around) and someone said "hey why doesn't Chris do it?"

"Someone" with clout in a WWE creative meeting came up with a way to humiliate a member of staff on live TV? Nah, that's totally implausible.

PWInsider:

quote:

There has been some movement within the last week towards Lucha Underground running events in Texas next year, PWInsider.com has learned.

PWInsider has been told that The El Rey Network series and promotion has reached out to talents under contract who have commitments Wrestlemania week and informed them they may be needed for events in Texas during that time period.

So, it would appear that Lucha Underground is working on putting together something for that week. Stay tuned.

Oh.

A bummer, as reported by the Observer:

quote:

Angelico is out of action for the next six weeks due to an undisclosed injury, which means due to the way the tapings are scheduled, he’ll be missing a large chunk of the second season.

PWG's twitter says it is a knee injury, in which case an estimated 6 weeks means it is likely relatively minor long-term, but that's a lot of tapings for LU. One thing they could potentially do is have him work a couple extra matches when he gets back to healthy and then backfill them into the season - it isn't unusual for them to tape stuff out of order. Depending on his knee and his non-wrestling mobility they could also just have him be ringside for Havoc and/or ivelisse so he doesn't abruptly disappear for like two and a half months.

It's funny because before Paige was calling herself the Anti-Diva, her and Ivelisse had an alliance called the Anti-Diva Army. So anytime they call Paige that, they're technically also referencing Ivelisse.

Tickets up for the last four tapings of Season 2!

(Edit) it looks like right now everyone is getting the "no tickets available" bounce back from the earlier tapings still, which is likely a mistake (I doubt we had a two minute sellout for all dates) - update: definitely a mistake since I now got the good "you'll hear more next week" response back as well.

It's probably pushing my luck to ask for 3 weekends off work in a month, so I decided to only request tickets for the 30th/31st this time. I figure if I can only go to one set I should probably make it Ultima Lucha.

Yeah the place seats like 1000 max (and by "seats" I'm including the standing room balcony) and with tickets being free they go pretty drat fast. If you don't get that email out in the first hour, it's probably all gone. This time they didn't do the advance notice for regulars either, or if they did I didn't get it.

They just put back up all the full matches that they took down from YouTube. Some renamed to be more descriptive, a few look like maybe they were remastered a little? Who knows what the deal was with all that.

Also reminder that tomorrow night and every Wednesday up until the season premiere, El Rey will be showing 5 hours of LU reruns starting at 8 eastern.

Neither of them really have video on demand. Sling lets you replay stuff from like the last 3-5 days and fubo lets you online dvr upcoming soccer matches but neither would have last season available just whenever.

I wish they'd put it up on VOD. I just bought the first season of The Director's Chair in HD from Amazon for $2.99. If they could put up the first season of Lucha Underground in HD for $25-30, I'd buy it.

Got my email for attending the Saturday taping yesterday. Just curious, it says that they start letting people in at 1:30 and doors close at 3:30, how quickly do decent seats fill up? Getting into LA is a fairly significant drive for me so I'm wondering how early I should leave.
