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

It's a shame as the show was such a mess in the financial department because I honestly thought it was the best wrestling show on TV around season 1 and 2. They had some awesome ideas and approached wrestling in such a creative way. They took that goofy side of wrestling and really played around with it and provided so much entertainment.

If you think Lucha Underground was a wrestling show then I guess No Holds Barred and Ready To Rumble were wrestling shows as well. Lucha was a sitcom about professional wrestling it wasn't actual pro wrestling.

If you want them to be they are, I got no time for gatekeeping over what is and isn't wrestling based on semantics. Go email Jim Cornette if you wanna discuss that.

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

Meltzer also gave up on it after season 3. I held out about halfway through 4 when it just got too stupid with the giant lizard and Paul London and his Rabbit group. It went way over the top for me. Then they decided to do business with that pathetic shitshow Impact wrestling. Would've been better to partner with Ultimate Surrender,the lesbian porn series. They have a better reputation actually.

I'll miss LU and the 3 1/2 seasons of awesome shit.

I enjoyed the way women were treated as equals as they feuded against each other and gave us some really good intergender matches. My favorite being Pentagon Dark vs Io Shirai,Kairi Hojo and Mayu Iwatani.

Angelico was outstanding as was the announcing team of Matt Striker and Vampiro. And one of my favorite feuds was between Killshot and Dante Fox.

And this man...

Season 1 and 2 kicked serious ass. Once I saw the likes of Prince Puma and Pentagon Jr. on other promotions it became clear LU's time was limited. It was fun while it lasted.

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

shame they couldn't build off of that first season. That first season was some of the most fun I have had watching wrestling in a while.

LU was out of this world. An indeed wonderful ride.

Worth celebrating every single episode of this gem.

Too bad, I really enjoyed what they were producing. It was interesting and different and had a budget with real top notch production values.

RIP Vampiro commentary edits.

DAMN...brother. YEAH. *grumbles & breathes*

Also, Brian Cage curb stomped Willie Mack's head into a cement block. Never forget.

Vamp putting Konnan over on commentary, but always making sure to mention he fucking hates him.

B-Boy getting eaten by a monster was my favourite moment.
