I remember when I was preparing to check out LU for the first time- I was a little bummed that the plan seemed to be for Mundo to be a top baby face. I was pretty surprised when they turned him, but it's all been pretty great since then. For me, he's a guy like Miz.

Yeah, I thought about that as soon as I posted. I actually missed their run together, but I remember hearing and seeing a little and thinking it sounded like they found great, entertaining roles for naturally hateable guys.

AAA will probably take him back, if only because they're so desperate for star power right now. But yeah, I think the LU bridge is burned.

Yeah AAA proper was very careful not to bury him on the way out despite leaving without dropping the belt. Not sure if the desire is there on Alberto's end or the money on AAA's end, but they'd gladly take him back.

It wasn't like super-dramatic, but the word was that he was upset at not getting an immediate main event push, and he publicly said on twitter that he thought it was "disrespect" that he had the opening match at Ultima Lucha. Ignoring that the match was against Mundo, one of the biggest stars in the company, and that he had only been there half the year, and that other people like Cage and the Trios Champs had gone earlier than him on the prior weeks' one-hour Ultima Lucha opener. But it's all ego with ADR, especially with Mexico related stuff.

After he showed up in WWE again, one of the LU writers said on Twitter that it was a mutual decision and they wished him the best. Then later they made fun of him by having Mundo (in his egomaniac heel character) bitch about having had the opening match at Ultima Lucha.

Yeah, I don't know if it's a complete bridge-burner the way he went out, especially if he potentially comes as a package deal with an ex-WWE Britani Knight.

Though if they didn't want to keep Melina around, they're probably smart enough to avoid that situation altogether.

Yeah he showed some fire at first but, as seems typical of Alberto, he just seemed to give a toss after a bit. Guy has some decent skills but his personality is way too Diva. For a guy who isn't in the generation, Patron has mastered the "entitled millenial" mindset. I say this as someone who is a millenial and really liked del Rio's original run. LU has far better options. Hell, they can promote a new guy who is hungry who would do better. Paige would work out alright I'm guessing.

Miz and Morrison were a great heel tag team. Always thought Mundo is fun in the ring and perfect wanker champ you want to see get punched in the smug face.

I've loved Mundo for pretty much the entire show, even his goofy babyface run. But he somehow kicked into a higher gear with the Worldwide Underground and it's absolutely glorious.

Alberto will probably go work for Combate Americas and combine it with a TNA deal.

I don't see LU and/or AAA being able to (or wanting to) pay him what he wants.

I think the only reason LU would bring back Alberto is for one last feud with Rey Mysterio.

If he can convince them he's a big enough hotshot to get a Hardy Boys-type sweetheart deal, they'd probably do it. Bonus points if he brushes up on his Smashing Pumpkins discography.

This is pretty cool:

Rey Mysterio has a one-year deal where he can pitch additional shows to El Rey first, and then if they decline, he can shop them around. Probably means that he has some idea for an additional show he wants to do. Also very likely means he is sticking around for a Season 4.

There's still a lot of rumors about a Netflix deal in the works, but who knows. They also might have had to sign some sort of exclusivity deal with iTunes to get that done for new episodes, I remember it being advertised as some sort of exclusive when the deal first went down.

Yeah that is still sort of the thought, with maybe some regions being tougher to close the deal with than others?

Or maybe Vamp just dicovered that there's all sorts of porn on Mexican Netflix that he doesn't have at home, who knows

(Edit) didn't realize Vamp protected his tweets now, it says "Not for nothin but Netflix in Mexico kicks Netflix Canada's rear end all day!! Canada!! Loosen up!"

I'm hyped to watch this and just hoping it isn't a clusterfuck on the iPPV side of things like half of AAA's shows are.

People can feel free to GDT Triplemania in this thread if you like. I'll be making a new thread for LU Season 3 in about a week.

So with all the hubbub about Hijo del Fantasma and Fenix pairing up, I can't decide whether that means there's no way they won't win, or their differences will specifically lose them the match. Either way, that's going to be a hell of a match.
