The Lucha Brothers need to improve their English Speaking Skills

I've watched The Lucha Brothers segment after their match against SCU on AEW FFTF. Pentagon Jr. & Rey Fenix need to improve their English Speaking skills.

First of all, Penta said "Good night" instead of "Good Evening". Later, they claimed themselves "The best tag team of the planet", when correct pronunciation is "World's best tag team".

They are both great luchadors, but if they want to become international stars, they need to practice different languages. Isn't it?

Nah.

Just speak Spanish and subtitle it in post-production. Fans would get the jist the night of. On interview segments just have an interpreter present like they do with non-English speaker interviews throughout the sporting world.

Re: The Lucha Brothers need to improve their English Speaking Skills

I actually think they can get away with just speaking Spanish , throwing little bits of English in here and there.

Pentagon is charismatic as hell and a strength IS his promos.

Backstage segments having subtitles would be pretty cool though. But a real sports like feel with a translator alongside during backstage interviews would be pretty fucking sweet and certainly give off a different vibe to how foreign speakers in wrestling have been presented.

You better raise your flame shield, wrestling fans don't like it when people ask foreign wrestlers to cut promos in English.

Nope

They are fine - especially Pentagon

He can just speak spanish - he gets his point across better than any 30min in-ring wwe promo

That part when Lucha Bros got over in America no problem seems to say otherwise.

Charisma & appeal transcends language barriers, chief.

Re: The Lucha Brothers need to improve their English Speaking Skills

Nah pentagon has more charisma in the way he speaks , I like how fenix translates for him , I saw a interview with him driven around Mexico he's cool outside wrestling too , so funny and comes across genuine unlike the fake lame ass guys in wwe .

Peace .

Re: The Lucha Brothers need to improve their English Speaking Skills

Yeah it certainly wouldn't hurt them to learn. Obviously they've done more than welll for themselves, but idk why some act like it's so insane to want a wrestler to speak the language of the promotion they're in.
