2018 LUCHA UNDERGROUND THREAD

Recommended Posts

Did anyone have issues with the audio? The sound kept going out every other second so I coulnd't watch it. And El Rey doesn't do replays right?

They will be repeating this episode next week at 6pm CT, probably a one-off because it aired on the holiday.

Big Bad Steve looks like a guy who started out cosplaying as 2002 Tazz then halfway through decided he'd rather be the final boss from the Van Damme Lionheart piece of shit.

Enjoying the WorldwideUnderground v. Reptile Tribe feud so far. Love all things Kobra Moon. Too bad Pectacular had to be sacrificed but The Savage still killing it.

Striker giving out Famous B's phone number again was the best thing he's ever done. I had no idea about any of this crap and when they said "his leg might have to be amputated"...

So we're totally getting Swagger vs. Pentagon in a "first broken bone" match at some point, right?

I still have to watch this episode. I only turned it on long enough to see that Big Bad Steve vs. Swagger was the opening match. For some reason, Mr. Pectacular popped into my head as a potential sacrifice but I thought he was a guy they'd use more regularly so I shrugged it off.

My interest in this season so far can be summed up by how I forgot to watch until yesterday. My idea of wrestling in 2018 is not a Chavo Guerrero Jr. or Jack Swagger match.

This is just another Impact for me now where if I hear there's a good match I'll check it out but I am checked out of everything else. It's like a parody of what Lucha Underground used to be.

One of my favorite moments was Striker saying something along the lines of "you gotta win over these believers, they won't just cheer for anyone!" as about 15 minutes later they gave an ovation to Mr. Pectacular.

That was canned

Nobody popped 

My favorite Matt Striker call was him fucking up and calling Antonio Dario and them leaving it in 

I feel less checked out since I didn't go live and everything is new to me this season.  If I'm going to watch something and talk about it on a 45 hour long weekly podcast I think me seeing it only once makes me more positive or something.

Damn Cage, you could have at least put your hands up...

EDIT: Somebody actually bought and wore the Joey Ryan, King of Dong Style shirt to this episode.

BTW, who was the guy that had the bright idea to let Paul London direct his own skit? That striped room was straight outta the late Ditko's playbook.

The Penta reveal unti the closing skit was the first thing I enjoyed this season. That stuff is what I want to see when I watch LU.

The closing skit was IMO the best thing Lucha Underground has ever done.  I loved it so much.

So happy to see good homie Killer Kross debut with a midget death on his hands

See if you check out the MMMShow you'll realize that the 45 hours is probably one of our shorter episodes

No LU for me going on two weeks now because of the Dish (& Sling) vs Univision dispute

I did see Babynuts playing a sicario on Queen of the South, though.  He had like two scenes and got a bunch of scrap metal dropped on him.

EDIT: holy shit @ Univision's announcements quoted in that article.  Essentially, "we're not going to call Dish a bunch of racists, but..."

I wonder if this had anything to do with the lowering of the season pass price on Amazon?  Seemed that they lowered it right when shit went off Sling

Cool that it appears we are getting a healthy Ivelisse this season. 

I thought that closing segment was good too and the epitome of LU.

I'd be enjoying the Ivelisse thing more if I didnt know she pissed off one of my favorite wrestlers so badly he quit the company but it was a good showcase for her and a fun match.

Nobody likes Son of Havoc, even Just for Men

I know Oyaji was kidding but I'm referring to Jack Evans the inventor of modern lucha libre and drunken master

To be fair to Ivelisse, after watching Evans on Poppin' Dogs and Talkin' Hogs, I don't know how anybody stands that fuckin' guy. He's so great, but his redneck conspiracy shit is soooo OTT.

I had to look up what OTT means but he was totally kidding.  I think.  His whole family is in Mexico.

Shit, I love Jack and while I'm oddly curious about the details it sucks if this happened.  I like Ivelisse on TV but hearing about her backstage ego through the years it's not that surprising.

The season so far has been just there for me.  But goddamn that White Rabbit video was exactly the thing I needed to be back fully on board with LU.  We need much more of that, please.  And  this is the second show aside from Impact I've seen Cross on but I'm really starting to like the guy.  Great to know that he's also a really cool dude on top of that.
