or maybe its because pro wrestling has gotten so bad that it made LU look like a million bucks

most of their guys were contracted to AAA so it had no guarantee of anything except an early grave

everyone was waiting for those meth heads to screw the pooch again


my point was that the plug was always in danger of being pulled since the beginning, just like WSX and LLUSA
Glad you responded because we’re in agreement of a lot of this.

Re: Meltzer: "Lucha Underground appears to be done."

What a shame. I was in love with LU Season 1-3. I loved Angelico and King Cuerno. Then everything went to shit. The storylines kept getting worse, concluding with that awful story with Cueto Jr. and all his BS. Then we learned how much of a disgusting human being Sexy Star really is. It just kept slowly dying since then.

I'll always have the memories of those incredible spots Angelico did, at least.

I absolutely loved my time with season 1 and 2. I started season 3 and after one episode I was done.

Lucha Underground will be an absolute treat for future wrestling fans to stumble upon and just mark the freak out.

Re: Meltzer: "Lucha Underground appears to be done."

Very sad to hear. Season One/Two of LU is still some of the best TV of wrestling I've ever watched. They made stars out of the likes of Pentagon Jr. and Fenix, and gave a good spotlight on lucha libre. Alongside that, they weren't afraid to be different and try out crazy ideas, which made for good viewing. Rest in power.

It was a fun wrestling experiment while it lasted. For what its worth it added a telenova aspect of professional wrestling. It really merged absurd and engrossing storylines into pro wrestling.

Season 1 was ok, but after that it went to crap pretty fast in my view.

Re: Meltzer: "Lucha Underground appears to be done."

Well given that everyone that was apart of that show moved to other promotions this was basically a given but still...I'm gutted. This show has honestly been the single best thing wrestling related ever since I got back into it a few years ago. It was different, fun, entertaining, and gave us memorable moments and matches to last a lifetime. There isn't anything like it in pro wrestling and probably won't ever be. One of a kind.

Rest in Power LU. Hopefully someday you can rise from the dead.
