You know what’s great? Getting to see Alberto Del Rio wrestle.
One of the reasons I keep telling you to watch Lucha Underground is for the novelty of it. It’s shot like a movie, not like a wrestling show. It’s got vibes of old luchador horror movies. Some of the wrestlers have shoot magical powers. There are dragons and guys who wear dear carcasses on their heads and John Morrison is there, and it’s all just super weird and great.
The best thing, though, is that as the show continues moving forward and becoming more and more of a success, it’ll attract stars from other promotions, and we’ll get to see them reinvented through the Lucha Underground lens. Alberto El Patron is the first of those major stars, and getting to see him cut loose and throw dives to the floor is great. It’s something you wish you could’ve seen elsewhere, but couldn’t, for whatever reason. Now it’s happening, and you should probably watch the hell out of it.
This week’s exclusive clip is a bit of El Patron vs. Texano. This is a baby portion.
Here’s the tune-in information and another clip, because why not?
