The Over/Under On Lucha Underground Episode 12: Cage Fighters

Pre-show notes:

– As we always try to mention, you can watch these shows the legal way by having El Rey Network or UniMás. The El Rey website says streaming episodes are “coming soon.” Go to the site and type in your info, they’ll tell you where to watch it. If you don’t have any other option, it’s worth it to find them wherever you can find them, but you didn’t get that from me.

– If you’d like to read about previous episodes, head over to the Lucha Underground tag page.

– I was at The Temple this weekend’s tapings and saw the episodes set to air on March 18 and March 25. I also signed a non-disclosure agreement saying I can’t excitedly tell you everything that happened, so I’ll try not to accidentally spoil things as we go. In case they’re reading, I want to thank all the people who helped get me to LA and to the shows, and I can say without hyperbole or any reason to kiss ass that the El Rey Network and Lucha Underground people are some of the nicest and most caring I’ve ever met in the wrestling business. What this show does isn’t by accident. This show is intentional, and the people behind it not only care about wrestling, but about what wrestling fans think. After years of being told I’m a virgin mark by WWE it’s nice to know some people care about our hearts and brains and want to make a show we can enjoy, and not be embarrassed to tell people about.

Under, But Still Kinda Over: Cage Promos Are So Wonderfully Bad

Every episode of Lucha Underground should begin with a dimly-lit, melodramatic backstage segment. I wish there was just an entire show of them. I would for real watch a supplementary half-hour of Dario Cueto just wandering around The Temple, running into people and having tensely-worded, symbolic conversations. I might like it more than the wrestling, and I like the wrestling a lot.
