Well, the LU-heavy matches were pretty disappointing.

Psycho Clown vs Pagano was good though.

Only 10 more days!

I'm ditching U-Verse and picking up DirecTV starting on the 3rd and will now have access to El Rey. Is there some place to watch seasons 1 and 2 in order to get caught up before 3 starts?

Both seasons are on iTunes if you're willing to pay for them. Otherwise you might be able to track down episodes on DailyMotion. El Rey might do a marathon of Season 2 leading up to the S3 premiere.

Huh, this appears to be some kind of new streaming service and is totally free. I don't see El Rey on there yet but maybe they haven't pushed it yet or I'm not searching right on my phone. Definitely something to keep an eye on.

It says it is US-only, but since there's no subscription, maybe non-US folks could VPN around that.

That would be coinciding with the show's panel at the Paley Center, then. Who's going to that, if anyone? I've got tickets. Should be fun.

ONE WEEK FOLKS, I'll be making the new thread this weekend







Pretty cool article on Lucha Underground here: http://www.laweekly.com/news/can-lu...ver-hit-7321569

My favorite quote from it:

quote:

The first round of talent brought to Lucha Underground from AAA was all Mexican, Van Wagenen says. But the first time he saw Taya, her nose was broken so badly during her match that it looked as it if it had been "removed from her face. She finished the match, stuck some stuff up her nose to control the bleeding, said, 'Hi, nice to meet you,' and started chatting away." He immediately knew he had to sign her.

This is from a few days ago, but I didn't see it mentioned:

So if/when season 4 happens don't expect Puma to be around for it, I guess.

I don't know that they'd even have to wait until season 3 is done airing since he's playing a different character. Since WWE has kind of stopped renaming indie acquisitions I wonder if he'd stay Ricochet or if they'd want to call him something else.

Ricochet/Tozawa/Uhaa stable plz.

Yeah, it's no surprise. After the Season 3 tapings were over, he had a goodbye speech in the ring to the live crowd (this won't air, it broke kayfabe a lot, so it's not a spoiler) and everyone from the locker room came out and did a big group hug with him. The fans surrounded the ring and hammered on the apron and chanted "thank you Puma" while the wrestlers lifted him up on their shoulders for a little victory lap. He was legitimately teary-eyed about it. It was nice. I hope he does well.

I had the same thought, maybe they could run him in tandem with LU since he's masked there, but I kind of doubt it, given how strict LU seems to be on contract issues. Still, WWE would be able to put him on TV next July, and they could bring him in before that and start working with him in NXT in a dark match/training capacity.

adding to that article Ricochet will be working for Evolve regularly going forward which is a pretty good indicator he's WWE bound

He'd go to NXT with some marginally okay first and last name combo and get it busted down to one lovely name by main roster.

Jeff Cobb SUPER SALTY about the PWI 500:

he's joking, #50 is Matanza

Also it ranked King Cuerno and Hijo de Fantasma separately, which is pretty funny.

Let's hope it's "Dave Ricochet" and it gets shortened to his last name then.

The cruiserweights will probably all be in their little segregated world within Raw and never have any angles with anyone else ever. I could see Ricochet and Uhaa teaming on Smackdown though, which would hopefully at least give Uhaa some direction.

I do think they'll change his name though, they've loosened it a little bit from their policy before but I don't think Ricochet is on the level of AJ Styles/Shinsuke Nakamura where their name recognition value outweighs the benefits to WWE of owning the character.

If you were listening to the observer this week then it's pretty clear that once Vince sees him, his name will be Mighty Mouse. By gawd, that's get him over.
