Opinion on Lucha Underground

I’ve been watching Lucha Underground for the past month and I can finally give an educated opinion about the product. The show is a great hour worth of action. All of the behind the scenes action may take a total of five minutes.

What I love:

1. Everything backstage. The backstage is cinematic a suspenseful. It’s just like you get to watch a quality television show in between wrestling matches.

2. Usage of talent. Lucha Underground uses their talent the same way that Ring of Honor uses theirs. Only a couple of luchas have appeared on back-to-back episodes. They definitely do not run a risk of over exposure, however it is difficult to keep track of some storylines.

3. Lighting. The lighting makes everything seem more dramatic.

What I hate:

1. Intergender matches. In wake of the Ray Rice scandal I would think that promotions are staying away from this entirely, but Lucha Underground has had a male versus female match in two of the last four weeks. To me the best wrestling is the wrestling that is believable. There is no way a man can truly hit a woman and she bounces back up and then later pin him. I understand if there needs to be a blow off but not just because the GM does not like a character.

2. Gimmick matches. I like gimmick matches just like everyone else, but the ones that make sense. For example, as I said previously I don’t like male versus female matches. Seeing a female lucha team with a “little person” and “flamboyant” guy defeat the three tough hombres is just not believable. I have seen some tough women, homosexuals and little people, but to see them get dismantled the way that I seen the get whipped and still win is unheard of especially when the opposing team is made up of three bad asses.

3. Who am I to pull for? As a heel fan I am unsure of whom to pull for. I suppose it is because I have not watched it from the beginning, but at some point fans need to know who to root for.

I must say that I like the show and will continue to watch. It brings a different look and energy to the product. You can find Lucha Underground on the El Rey network. Check your local listings.

Jerry’s World to host WrestleMania

It was announced Tuesday that WrestleMania 32 will take place April 3, 2016 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

This will be the third time that wrestling’s big event takes place in the Lone Star state. Both WrestleMania X-Seven and The 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania were both held in Houston.

Vince McMahon said in a press release:

“WWE thanks the city of Arlington, city of Dallas and the Dallas Cowboys for their tireless efforts to bring WrestleMania to AT&T Stadium,”

“We look forward to making history at WrestleMania, while adding AT&T Stadium to the list of iconic venues that have hosted our annual pop-culture extravaganza.”

When the 2010 NBA All-Star Game had a crowd of over 108,713 in this very building. Expect the WWE to try fit more people into the building.

WresteMania XXX was in New Orleans, LA. The event generated a record-breaking $142.2 million, which resulted in more than $24 million of additional tax revenue.

A few wrestlers took to Twitter.
