First what is Lucha Underground: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Lucha Underground is a professional wrestling television series produced by United Artists Media Group. The weekly television series airs in English on the El Rey Network and in Spanish on UniMás, featuring professional wrestlers from the American independent circuit and Mexican wrestling promotion Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA).
You can see this show if you have Time Warner on El Rey Wednesday nights at 7 CDT and On Demand you can also see old shows on You Tube
Being a big fan of El Rey I caught ads about this on another program on El Rey Matador after seeing the ads I knew I had to see this show at least once.
Mother of God! Do I love this show! Now I was not a WWE sport type fan, however, I see Lucha Underground as far more then just a cheep knock off of The WWE (and we see lots of that)
I see great writing fantastic plot development, with allowing what I can only say is fighters from American wrestling shows being able to get payback by being allowed to shine as stars interacting with fans doing something they (the fighters) love doing.
In this part I see Robert Rodriguez (mind you I see him in the plot lines as well) and the way he and his good pal Quentin Tarantino use actors who have not been around much in films new opportunities in projects, I see the same thing with this show with some of the America fighters.
I Love love love how fantastic themes run in the show such as duty, honor, tradition, and respect.
All interacting to create a Universe that I so much would love to be part of.
Oh did I say the Women are MEGA SUPER HOT! Sure do a great job in the ring as well.
I very much appreciate the Tejano themes in the show, that is very cool to see and reflects on my values as I listed above.
In fact I hope that as youth watch this show they come to see those values within there homes and within them.
Please check out Lucha Underground I think you will not be disappointed
