Re: Lucha Underground Season 4 Discussion Thread (Cero Spoilers)

It was a decent episode. But if I'm being honest, this is Lucha freaking Underground. And with it being the Season premiere.....I don't know, I expected more than what we got I guess. Let me run through some things.

Antonio Cueto. OK, I really hope that Dario isn't really dead and he's just wearing a disguise. I really hope that's the case. Because if not, I mean how long am I supposed to take this seriously. I mean I know LU can be silly at times but to see the same actor play Dario but with a fake beard and a wig just seems too silly. And that's not even what they're going for.

Now the new setting. They did their best to dress it up as the old Temple. But it's still not the old Temple. It just doesn't have that same look and atmosphere that helped make LU so great.

And the Warfare match itself was nothing great. A bunch of quick eliminations just for the sake of quick eliminations and even when you got all the good guys in there towards the middle, it never got as violent or as action packed as you would expect. And.....Chavo's back. Because of course he is.

My hope is now that with Aztec Warfare being done they can get to 1 on 1 storylines and really get to what makes this show so great. But Episode 1 was not a great start IMO.

Re: Lucha Underground Season 4 Discussion Thread (Cero Spoilers)

You know if someone told me that Season 4 would start of with Aztec Warfare I would of called you a liar especially with the Lucha World Title on the line. Aztec Warfare this week was overall fun and entertaining, but their was so weird decisions and talent in there to where I was like why in the fuck is that person in there. Like come on Chavito eliminating Fenix with a Suplex and beating King Cuerno two of the best talents in the company with ease hell naw. I didn't expect Pentagon Dark at all to lose the title, especially when I saw that he was eliminating a good majority of the people in there. I did like how some of the interactions are setting up future Matches and we got to see Catrina and Daga so overall they got the job done.

New Temple home..same vibe, and I bet over time Dario erm..Antonio's voice is going to be wrecked and needing of some Halls, but hey we got Matanza vs Pentagon next week expect Pentagon Dark to retain most likely.

I checked on wiki and imdb. They say it's the same lady. I thought that too, it was a different lady. She got heavy.

I agree with most others in that being the worst Aztec Warfare. I really hope they do another because of that. But, I liked that they introduced a ton of people.

I am so happy Hernandez is back because he's one of the few heels I hate. And, that brings me to the best thing about lucha: I get worked like a stupid mark. WWE can't pull it off because of their branding and media. I also love that people can be pinned without a finisher.

There were definitely weak pins, but I enjoyed the unknown and hoped Pentagon would win. I got what I wanted.

8/10 for the kick off.

Is cobra moon on steroids because she looks fine as hell

Re: Lucha Underground Season 4 Discussion Thread (Cero Spoilers)

EDIT: GREAT news regarding the rating though.



I'm really glad a lot of people are being lukewarm with their reactions. We all love this show but I think we all know they're capable of better. Happy that everyone doesn't just praise it immediately because it's back. We'll see where this seasons goes.

Re: Lucha Underground Season 4 Discussion Thread (Cero Spoilers)

It certainly looked like Cheerleader Melissa to me, I felt sure she was thicker or had a boob job too, She looked great to be fair, as did Kobra Moon. Marty looks trim too.

I didn't mind the new temple, it is close enough to the original (so far at least) to feel right. The match it self was pretty weak though, usually aztec warfare is 10mins longer but because of all of the videos at the start I guess they had to trim it, People entering (and exiting) left and right, off of some especially weak finishes. Fenix was my star of the show - He looked great in there.

None of the debutants or returnees interested me at all - Dreamer, Pectacular, Air-nandez, Chavo (at least Chavo made a bit of sense), Actually you could probably count Daga as a returnee, which is cool, Vibora's new mask is much worse than the original.

I get why they did it, get everyone on for the first show and introduce them to new viewers or ones who can't remember them. I just felt the level was WAY below other Aztec Warfare matches. Season 1 AW is incredible, all of the feuds that started/ended/continued in there made it much more compelling than this one.

I'm looking forward to next week though...Main event should be good and we get to kick off some new angles, which we didnt really get in this match too much apart from the Ricky Mundo bit, which felt a little rushed.

Re: Lucha Underground Season 4 Discussion Thread (Cero Spoilers)

very underwhelming for a aztec warfare episode, didn't feel invested in any of the competitors during the match, in all honesty i don't want to see matanza vs pentagon jr again at this point, daga returning was my favourite moment from the episode, the whole dario father thing ain't doing it for me, I was happy to give it a chance and suspend my believe for LU but it's little too hokey for me.

Re: Lucha Underground Season 4 Discussion Thread (Cero Spoilers)

I think it was a decent opening episode. This Aztec Warfare is probably the weakest of them. Everyone seem to get eliminated pretty easily but other than that it was fun to watch.

Geeked for Pentagon vs Mantanza Next week. So happy that Lucha Underground is back!

Re: Lucha Underground Season 4 Discussion Thread (Cero Spoilers)

Wow I was so disappointed by this episode. I was really looking forward to it, maybe a bit too much...

I think LU has lost a lot of the things that made it stood out so much for me in the past

Amazing production values --> Impact-esque audio and video editing, Antonio's awful wig, voice and acting, no vignettes
The temple atmosphere felt so different from WWE --> what the hell are those ropes? The lightning was bad, the apron is clean
Everybody felt strongly booked --> Fenix, Mil Muertes and others have been eliminated so anticlimaticly, and by Chavo...

I'm not saying it was awful, we still got some great glimpses of in-ring action from Fenix and others but I really hope the future episodes will be better!
