in terms of wrestling, the 1st season was probably the best thing i have watched since early 2000's.

someone should buy the lucha underground arena before it gets torn down. It had such a underground fight feel to it. Would be great place to shoot shows for a promotion like the NWA

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

Season 1 was the best wrestling show in years, no doubt in my mind. Storyline consistency was on a level rarely seen in modern wrestling.

Despite the negative aspects of how contracts were handled, which emerged during the last seasons, definitely helped a lot to the careers of some guys. Pentagon and Fenix really grew on me big time in this show. The character development of Pentagon was amazing and made really wanna follow where will this crazy mother f'er go from here.

The show also introduced to us one of the most iconic and best non-wrestler figures ever in the face of Dario Cueto. Would mark out if this guy gets involved in wrestling again, even for somewhat of a cameo.

The production quality and style of shooting were really great and unique for a wrestling show. Hope some guys of the production team will keep working
in the business or at least someone will borrow form their work and way of shooting a wrestling match, even though taped.

I think this show didn't get the exposure it deserved and its legacy for the wrestling business is something that will be fully appreciated in the future.

Dario Cueto should sign to AEW as a manager

It was amazing. Season 1 was pure quality from start to finish. LU restored my interest wrestling and had the right mix of outrageous characters and work rate matches. Angelico’s dive is one of the best spots ever.

God will they ever be another wrestling promotion like Lucha underground? Can't WWE do something like this with their 500 hours of television per week.

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

Lucha Underground was way ahead of its time and will go down as one of the best wrestling products of all time.

I wish other products would take Lucha Underground’s vision of long term booking and fast paced storytelling
