Like Prince Puma and El Dragon Azteca Jr. teaming up to take on Matanza Cueto in Aztec Warfare, Lucha Underground and Impact Wrestling are teaming up at WrestleCon on WrestleMania Weekend to take on the seething, face-eating cage monster that is WWE.
The shows are coming together for a show vs. show battle on the Friday before Mania, and your dreams of seeing Johnny Mundo vs. Johnny Impact or Hijo del Fantasma vs. King Cuerno are one step closer to reality. Sadly, somehow, Impact beat us to that joke.
Via the press release:
IMPACT Wrestling announced today a historic co-promotion with Lucha Underground has been set for WrestleCon weekend scheduled for April 5 to April 8, 2018 in New Orleans, La.
The stars of IMPACT Wrestling will face off against the stars of Lucha Underground on Friday, April 6, starting at 9:00 p.m. CT at The Sugar Mill (1021 Convention Center Blvd.) during what will be the biggest weekend of the year in professional wrestling.
IMPACT Wrestling vs. Lucha Underground will stream live exclusively on IMPACT Wrestling’s Twitch channel (www.twitch.tv/impactwrestling). The channel will feature over 10 hours of original daily content for three days during WrestleCon weekend, including exclusive podcasts and behind-the-scenes footage.
Actual moments we’d like to see on the show include King Cuerno killing and stuffing Moose, Scott Steiner vs. Vibora (just to see how long Steiner can go before he realizes he isn’t hallucinating), and someone finally solving the mystery of the missing Alberto El Patron.
