Over: El Patrón Immediately Asks The Important Questions

Alberto El Patrón has been in the presence of Dario Cueto for like 30 seconds when he asks (and I’m paraphrasing), “what’s the deal with that key?” Cueto blows him off, but I love that Lucha Underground is a universe where somebody paused the writing process for two seconds to say, “hey, if a guy’s wearing a giant key around his neck wouldn’t strangers ask him about it?” Just addressing it and moving on goes a long way. It’s even better when it’s a subtle power play, with El Patrón accomplishing in a sentence what Johnny Mundo needed punches in the face to do.

Also immediately great about El Patrón:

Over: Alberto Still Has His Car Entrance, Only Now It Actually Makes Sense

In WWE, Alberto Del Rio would drive expensive cars into the arena as part of his ring entrance. It never made a ton of sense as they established Del Rio lived on a palatial estate in Mexico (employing Canadians) and assumedly kept his cars there, which suggested he picked out a car, drove it from Mexico to wherever WWE’s live event was being held, then drove BACK to Mexico to start the process again. I mean, he could’ve used a car delivery service, but that wouldn’t make any sense. Also, why’s he driving cars into the arena? Wouldn’t he just park like everybody else? Did he get into his gear before the started driving or did he change on the way? Did he make a 3,000 mile car trip in nothing but underpants and a scarf?
