    Ledesma uses the term working agreement very loosely so we'll see what comes of it besides Quack doing a match at some point. He's claimed working agreements with New Japan when Yoshitatsu worked one show against his will & even WWE when Regal/Sarah showed up to watch a show while in Mexico on other business. But does he really having working agreements with them? Obviously not.

    2018 LUCHA UNDERGROUND THREAD

    One of the rumors that is more fact than rumor even though nobody will come right out and say it is Dorian gave an ultimatum that any wrestler who left AAA and still wanted to work Lucha Underground would only be allowed if they returned to AAA. Fenix/Penta types were considered untouchable since they don't really need LU any more in the first place, let alone AAA at all. But a guy like Daga needs the U.S. exposure and thus really wanted to be on LU Season 4. He's there. Taking part in one of the main stories they are taping over this season. Yet he hasn't returned to AAA yet & is telling everyone he has no intention of doing so. Makes you wonder how much influence Dorian really has when it comes to certain decisions.

    It was an explanation of an imaginary story. Just shows how even the guy in charge has no idea what is going on. It's cool you liked the show but I don't think it was as great as you are trying to portray. It was the usual AAA mess.

    The spoilers look dreadful but I can't muster up the energy to really complain until this all airs in 6 months or whenever it is. Definitely strikes me as a 'get your friends that El Rey dinero before it disappears' type season.

    The entire LU midset is something I'll never get. I know for a fact they had the chance to be part of WM weekend 2 years in a row and could have easily sold a show with how much buzz they had but they were in, then out, then in and finally out with the excuse they had a tour planned and wanted to wait to do that. That tour never happened obviously. Either time. It always came off to me that the people with the final say looked at how much money a live show could make and if it was 5 figures they just scoffed at it not being worth it because these are guys who deal with multi-million dollar productions on a regular basis. Meanwhile even just one 5 figure payoff could have helped the company even just by paying the small costs that add up. The people most excited for LU's return is probably Arolucha because they are the touring group who wants to try to make money off shows while LU gives their guys free TV time.

    It's a weird deal. I want to be excited for them actually coming back and I'm sure I will eventually be excited whenever these shows make it onto TV but from a realistic standpoint... new location, probably no Dario, lots of talent turnover, lower budget so probably very different looking show... I dunno... makes you wonder why they are even bothering? The hype for LU is lagely non-existent these days outside of a group of fans smaller than the Impact fanbase. It just comes off as something that should be put to bed but they aren't going to let it. And the entire purpose here seems to be film a television show that has proven not to be something that gets a huge audience, meanwhile they have zero merchandise possibilites going forward and refuse to admit they are a wrestling company so they won't set up any tours. I just keep going back to the question 'what's the point?'

    CRASH started their NOLA announcements a bit late but at least they made a big one... Fenix vs Flamita first time on U.S. soil for their Friday noon show! That's gonna be one of the best matches that weekend for sure. Flamita doesn't make it to the U.S. often outside of PWG so this will be a great chance for people to see him against his best opponent. You know where I'll be!

    Titan vs Mephisto from CMLL tonight was an excellent match. Well worth checking out.

    I haven't seen the match but I'm presuming the blood from Marco was hardway because he posted an instagram photo with a cut near his eye stitched up and it would seem awfully risky to blade yourself near the eye.

    If this really is the end it will be interesting to read some post-LU interviews where people can speak more freely. I can understand the writers/producers defending the storyline around Sexy Star... the conquering female and all that... BUT if not a single person comes forward and admits casting her in that role was a mistake I'm gonna be very disappointed in the lack of honesty.

    I agree completely on everything re: Penta. I'm not a writer so I have no knowledge of how it works or anything but to me it seemed like they couldn't capitalize at first b/c they taped so far in advance, then they kept coming up with ideas to delay and delay and delay Penta's rise to the top because the chase is cool and all. But the chase is not cool when you have to wait so long between seasons & he's resorting to going back to doing feuds with people he's already run through. This entire universe should be built around him. I don't know either writer personally... DJ has always been cool to me & helped me get tickets for a taping once so I've obviously got nothing personal against him. Just sometimes I feel like the writers on the show think they are the most important people and the actual wrestlers are just playing roles to get the stories over. Like the Sexy Star thing was never working at all but they were hell bent for some reason on doing a woman conquers all story and were going to ride that to the end no matter what even though it was obvious it wasnt working. Or the Famous B/Brenda comedy stuff that seems to get way more play than other acts on the show because clearly the writers love that act. Like why are we wasting time on silly skits with those two? I'm looking forward to next week but at the same time also not looking forward to it. Mixed emotions I guess. I am curious whether they filmed multiple scenes as possiblities to end the season where if they knew for sure they were coming back they have something planned and if they think they may not come back they have a scene where the entire LU universe blows up or something. I read spoilers so I know the match results but it's the story stuff I'm super intrigued to see play out since nobody would have known what they have planned with all that. I think Cubs & I are at an impasse re: the "lord" in the limo. I think it's building up to be an actual wrestler, Cubs thinks it'll just be another celebrity cameo.

    Not completely sure of the accuracy of the report but Observer goes into a bit of detail on the impass over a fourth season and seperates the internal opposing sides. One side is said to have EVW (cool), Dorian Roldan (ew) & Vamp (fuck off). So I'm torn on supporting that side if true.
