Welcome to Moonside.

Moonwel ot cosidme.

One of the debuts in the (first?) dark match I was expecting, the other was very surprising to me. I think they both looked good though, and I would be very interested to see how they use the second guy because he's not at all like any other character on the show.

Also Joey gets a much better reception in the temple than in Reseda. Guess most of this crowd wasn't watching PWG circa 2010.

Totally agree. The two dark match debuts were Flamita (finally), and Sami Callahan (aka Solomon Crowe when he was NXT). Sami actually fit surprisingly well, working a very hard hitting kick based offense. Remains to be seen if they actually end up using him, but I thought he came off pretty well. They could always figure out what to do with him later gimmick wise -- they changed gimmicks vastly for people they've picked up after they finished their dark match period. And yeah, Joey is really over in the Temple. I guess we love our sleaze.

They also acknowledged the Angelico injury, saying Angelico was being rushed to the hospital and that they were going to get to the bottom of what happened. I wouldn't be surprised if they shoot some sort of clip to work it as a storyline angle.

I have to believe that they'll put him under a gimmick if they do end up using him going forward. That was a really fun match, even as somebody who doesn't hate that guy I know his offense can be a little... sketchy sometimes, but he was on point in that match. I think I was one of the only people who knew who Flamita even was, but I guess that's not surprising considering where he's worked prior to this.

I thought tonight's tapings were significantly better as a live show than yesterday's, but who knows how it'll all look after editing.

Dark match debut spoiler: Tessa Blanchard wrestled a dark match against Ivelisse. Unfortunately Tessa hurt what looked like her shoulder, seemingly pretty badly, on like the first drat move of the match and while they did what they could with it, she didn't really get a chance to show her stuff. At the very least, Tessa deserves credit for gutting out a several minute match and not just calling for it to go home, there were times where I could see both Ivelisse and the ref repeatedly asking her "Are you okay?" and they were struggling hard to find a way to work through it. She was clearly in a LOT of pain. She also waved the ref off after the match when he tried to throw up the X and went to the back on her own. Ivelisse got the win but held up Tessa's hand afterward.

For those that don't know why this might be a big deal, Tessa is Ricochet's girlfriend and if they were to sign her for Season 3 and beyond, it could provide further incentive for him to stay with the company after his contract runs. Not that it's the only reason, from what I've heard Tessa is pretty good, but I'm sure that is factoring in as well. Hopefully she's not hurt too bad and gets a chance to do some more matches.

Dumb. Passive aggressively tweeting about poo poo is the worst way to handle things, these two should be smarter. As I said in the spoilers, from where I was sitting it seemed like Ivelisse checked several times and she was, like, visibly concerned and trying her hardest to carry the match. So while I don't know whatever may have happened backstage, I wouldn't have put anything negative on Ivelisse for the in-ring portion. Wouldn't be surprised for Ricochet to be a little overprotective and that's understandable, but Twitter is a poo poo way to address things.

I kind of get where Ricochet is coming from because that was obviously a big opportunity for his girlfriend's career so it's not surprising he'd be upset, but he should know better than to go about it that way.

Thanks! I was just coming here to post about that. It's a little scattershot and glosses over a few things here and there, but it is at least a good introduction to the characters for those who missed Season 1. Added it to the OP under the "How do I get caught up" section.

I'd usually go via the luchaticket email address, but if you're not getting a response there, I've seen luchaunderground@elreynetwork.com mentioned for reservation related issues.

I've said it in here a couple times but I've been very impressed by Fubo's quality. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of Sling but it's a very consistent high-quality stream.

They didn't want to negotiate stuff like streaming services and DVDs/BluRays until they got long-term existence confirmed, and season 2 and 3 weren't official until a month or two ago. It's going to happen eventually, it was just #3 on the priority list at best

A lot of episodes got yanked from YouTube/Daily Motion in a short span without notice, which led people to believe that some kind of VOD deal was in the works, but I've heard nothing since then.
