STOP DOING HEROIN

I dunno, as someone who still likes LU and wants the storylines to continue, I also want the talent to have as much freedom as possible to work elsewhere (it's legit lovely to hold them to contracts when they haven't been paid in over a year). I really hope they come up with some sort of compromise where I can have my stupid Lucha Sci-Fi Nonsense AND the wrestlers get some measure of career mobility and exposure in healthier promotions. But that's probably naive of me.

Ah well, at least we don't have to watch Sexy Star again.

NJPW feels lacking in the "dude what kicks people in the head" department lately, so I'm 10,000% down for this.

Dave says LU is telling talent if they're unhappy and want out, they will let them out of their contracts as long as they agree to come to one set of tapings to be written off.

Also apparently AroLucha started up based on the idea that there wasn't going to be a season 4 of LU, and now there is concern that they'll actually be able to get the talent they wanted.

That doesn't exactly seem like a sound basis for a new promotion.

Part of me is kinda morbid and wants the first three episodes of LU season 4 to just be 80% of the cast being written off.

"Our first main event! King Cuerno, Cage, Mil Muertes, Jeremiah Crane and Rey Mysterio are all fighting for the gauntlet! My god, he did it! El Mariachi Loco has won the gauntlet and he just punched a hole through the rest of the fighters! And Angelico got hit by the thunderous impact also! Vampiro, what do you have to say about this?!"
"If you look closely, you can see that the gauntlet has actually consumed Rey Mysterio's soul and he has now turned into ash. I always knew that's how his career would end. Join us next week when Drago, Fenix and Pentagon Dark have a The Floor Is Lava Match, surely they will all survive."
"We just got reports that Aerostar and Argenis have been spotted in the stratosphere, may the gods aid them in their fight against the war martians and i hope we see them again sometime."

Glad to head they're both going to be back.

It's going to be fun to watch other promotions adjust. I fully expect Fenix to drop his AAW belt, probably to Riddle (ugh), before the filming starts. Fortunately the condensed filming schedule should make it easier for everyone to plan.

Aren't the tapings for the new season supposed to be happening about now? But not in the Temple, and maybe without Dario?

No... no I refuse to believe it will be without Dario. That's not possible.

If it goes live like all the other in-production TV shows on Netflix, season 3 will go up just before season 4 starts airing on the network.

I understand people not being happy about spoilers being out, and not wanting things out that shouldnít be out. I can not understand legally threatening people about it. I especially canít understand going after people for talking whatís being taped for the show in a world where the people who are actually on the show are talking about the show. I know thereís a cage match this weekend because the lead writer posted about it. I know thereís a good chance Tessa Blanchard is on the tapings this weekend because Taya posted a photo with her. I know LAX are in Los Angeles too for no obvious reason, so maybe theyíll be visiting Temple too. I can go on, there is plenty more. I donít want to because this is not about getting people in trouble, this is about how much comedy it is to think youíre going to keep something like this quiet in 2018.

You can make a case that finding out what happens will diminish peopleís interest in what has occurred. Iím not sure thatís conclusively correct, especially with a show on a network (and an advertising budget) the size of El Rey, where any buzz to remind people the show exists is a helpful thing. But letís run with it: letís say spoilers are costing them money. Other things costing Lucha Underground money: the lack of LU merchandise, the lack of promotion of the merchandise they do have, the lack of live shows, the lack of a third season streaming deal, the lack of international deals in obvious places like the UK. Somehow, Lucha Libre FMV always has time and money for lawyers and nothing else. Itís that dril tweet come to life. The difference between Lucha Underground being a success and not being a success is not Lucha Underground spoilers. This is all wasted energy when they really do need that energy for other things.
