Been bothering me all week, but I knew Tommy Dreamer's Lucha Underground theme sounded familiar. It's actually Jerry Lynn's WWF theme lmao.

Really not sure about this new season and future of the show. I enjoyed the first episode but something is just off so far and it's not just the new temple

I completely forgot about season 4 starting up.  The problem with LU is it's gotten so far away from what it was and what made it the hottest wrestling show during season one. They went from mostly AAA luchadors and some former WWE talent to mostly indy guys and former WWE guys becoming the main focus. They need the focus to be back on lucha and leave indy-style to the indies, and I don't mean that in a derogatory way.

I feel like it's always been a good mix of everything. I think season one had as much focus on indy talent as it does now, I mean Puma/Ricochet was champ for the majority of the season. And a lot of the focus in season one was on the likes of Mundo, Alberto and Cage. Plus, the main luchadors featured back then were Mil, Sexy, Pentagon, Drago, Cuerno and Fenix. Not much has changed since they're all still featured pretty heavily today, and the face of the company right now is Pentagon.

Just caught up with last night's episode. Shame we didn't get to see Wagner again, I'm guessing they're keeping him exclusively for Ultima Lucha specials. :lol: But the new acquisitions to Infamous Inc. were nice, though Jake Strong (Jack Swagger) seems so out of place. Kobra Moon's tribe vs. Worldwide Underground seems very interesting with both teams being heels, I doubt this turns Johnny's group face though. And Pentagon finally picking up a win against Matanza was great. I like how quick they're trying to make Pentagon into a legit champ and making up for putting the title on him two seasons late.

We noted before how Ring of Honor had lost their 2019 dates for a big Madison Square Garden debut for the company after MSG had talks with WWE. MSG officials had been down on the fact that none of WWE's WrestleMania 35 events were booked with them and how WWE had started using the Barclays Center in Brooklyn as their main arena in New York City.

 

Regarding the dates that Mexico's AAA promotion had booked for this fall, PWInsider reports that they still have the two dates booked. One date is Sunday, September 16th and the other is a back-up date as they are also looking at running Las Vegas on September 16th. There was talk of the other date being Sunday, September 23rd but word is that it will be later in the fall. AAA is working on strategies for debuting at MSG in the fall but they are also talking about possibly pushing the debut back to early 2019 as they want to maximize the opportunity.

 

WWE is set to return to MSG on Saturday, July 7th for a non-televised event with The Undertaker and Ronda Rousey. Word is that The Undertaker was added as a special attraction and not in response to MSG reaching out to other wrestling companies.
