    I don't get the El Rey network, but this looks interesting to me.

    They have John Morrison, who's calling himself Johnny Mundo.

    Does anyone know anything about this?

    I've heard it mentioned on podcasts, but never seen it.

    I think the camera work looks good and honestly, I never really liked TNA.

    Johnny Mundo....I wonder if his wife/girlfriend is going to sleep with the whole locker room like she did in Stamford?

    It just started airing this week. It is backed by Mark Burnett - http://variety.com/2014/tv/news/el-...e-production-of-lucha-underground-1201291953/

    The "owner" is a spanish actor hired for the role. He is not part of the actual behind the scenes

    He wasn't any of the promoters that work AAA or CMLL, so I was figuring as much.

    I think it's a great gimmick that character though.

    Is there a list of the workers involved anywhere?

    I'm kinda particular to the old shitty, but sometimes reliable WWE (shaky) Zoom-in Zoom-Zoom-out kind kind of forgiving camera work. But that's just me...

    One of the Mexican orgs got a US TV deal. I think AAA. This is why WWE is trying to block Del Rio and Misterio from wrestling for a year, both will go right to Lucha Underground. For years WWE has been desperate to find a beaner to replace Rey and solidify themselves in the Hispanic market. This show will torpedo that.

    Lucha Underground is signing Americans for ridiculous contracts. Very little money, 7yr deals where all bookings have to go through LU. But at least it is work, on TV and can only up their price on indy shows.

    I bet that fruit ate Batista's goodies out of her. Biggest cuck in WWE since Candido.

    Have you seen the Melina nude pic?

    Ya know, I got sick of seeing Chavo Jr in TV title matches 20yrs ago, but that fucker keeps turning a buck. He has worked everywhere and put together a nice career. I gotta give him props. I'm very glad the same can't be said for Alex Wright.

    I've heard of them, I think they're out here in L.A. My friend went to an event of theirs a while ago and said they were good. Will double check.

    From what I've heard they're working on those wonky contracts. They couldn't really sign anyone because of it.

    They just signed him. And I'd imagine not to the wonky contract that @wife is a whore mentioned.

    I could see 3 yrs, so if they get some legs under them WWE doesn't sign their top talent to kill em off, but 7yrs w/ no real guaranty is crazy.

    That's why everyone and their mother turned them down lol. I think even 3 years is too restrictive given they're plans. This will be episodic, not continuous. These are Indy workers- they've gotta be able to eat in-between tapings.

    If they'd relax on those contracts they could have the best wrestling show on television.

    I heard Rey Mysterio was recently a spectator at one of their tapings and it may cause trouble since he's still under contract with WWE.
