Lucha Underground


Gotta say I’ve been really enjoying this. It’s a new wrestling promotion that airs on the El Rey network, and focuses on the lucha libre style of wrestling – and is in fact connected to the Mexican AAA promotion. It does a great job of creating storylines to introduce all of these unknown (to me and probably most non-Mexican viewers) wrestlers, and also shoots the story segments in a slick TV style – not the “reality” style that we usually see on wrestling shows. And the matches themselves are quite exciting to watch, with a lot of high-flying moves and great interaction. After being out of following pro wrestling for at least a few years now, I’ve been slowly dipping my feet back in, and checking out what out’s there. This – which launched a couple of months ago, there’s been 8 episodes – is one of the things I’ve been enjoying the most.
