While I agree that the lighting isn't helping, the first half hour and the main event felt like old LU. Due to the band change, I'd assume this is from the next set of tapings so the show has had time to settle in.

Please keep improving, LU.

That main event was finally a match that felt like the LU we all knew and loved. Desmond X is such a great addition to the roster. The sound people need to cool it on the kick smacks though. It's comical how identical they all are now, even for the weakest looking strikes.

I certainly hope so. Maybe Vibora comes back to add on some more layers of supernatural weirdness to the Reptile Tribe, LU loses because Johnny and Taya get shook, feud goes on until Ultima Lucha and possibly forever because this turf war between sneks and douchebags is weirdly compelling.

It's an absolute shame that they didn't use the "I hate snakes" line. Unless I missed it as I wasn't paying 100% attention.

Second. At least I think. He was not one of the Disciples of Death.

Johnny really needs to work on his Macho Man impression, though.

Overall a very fun episode and the first of this season that felt "right".

I was wondering why they had been angling the Douchebag Crew to be face-like lately and I guess that's our answer. That was so cool! (And also hilarious that Johnny is such a loving wrestler that he had to reference Macho even then.)

So uh... does LU have bad blood with Ricochet? I thought the way they put Puma over on the way out, everything was cool but now it seems like serious sour grapes.

TOO EASY

I actually really like this season. They've ramped up the cinematic campiness like crazy, it feels like they've got some production budget, all the belts have compelling angles, and the stable feuds are fun as hell. Sure, seasons 1-3 had a different feel, but this feels like they're evolving and finding their momentum as both a promotion and a corny-rear end weirdo TV show instead of retaining status quo.

Also I love that Big Ryck's death in the comics was canon, and that Mil really did harvest his skull.

The Last Man or Machine Standing match was good. It took an avalanche canadian destroyer, package piledriver through chairs, two broken arms and a curb stomp through a cinderblock to keep the machine down. Which sounds about right

It's because they filmed his last show over a year before it aired, and during that time they stopped him from appearing on other US TV shows, like New Japan's US Special, and WWE.

No I mean I get why he'd be pissed but I hadn't heard anything about any reason for them to be mad at him in return.
