Lucha Underground (SAT) 09/06/2014 Lucha Underground Arena, Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, California [PWInsider, WrestlingHeads]
1) Famous B b B-boy
2) Mil Muertes b Martis Cassus
dark match. Ex-Maxine from NXT was with Mil. Mil may have been Mesias under a mask.
3) Blue Demon Jr. b Chavo Guerrero Jr.
4) Sons Of Havoc b Sexy Star
Sons of Havoc is Matt Cross
5) Johnny Mundo b Prince Puma
ex-John Morrison defeated a masked Ricochet. The evil (and unnamed) promoter had promised 100,000 to whoever had impressed him. Lil Cholo, Ricky Reyes and Ezekial Jackson (not given names) attacked Mundo & Puma after the main event. The promoter announced those three (may be named the Crenshaw Crew) would get money and already work for him.
WrestlingHeads has the full match by match results and should get credit if anyone uses them. Only three matches on the show, though I’d presume there’s a lot of backstage skits being taped. Only two of the AAA luchadors made air on the debut episode, with one a woman losing a match that’s an obvious bad style match up for her. Main is ex-WWE guy defeating ex-indy guy. No Fenix, no Pentagon, no Drago. No Konnan either, but PWI says he was working as an agent, as was Chavo. Those two guys would seem to have very different philosophies, but maybe not?
The crowd looks small in the pictures – PWInsider says it was few wrestling fans and a lot of plants. It’ll probably be the same this week: promoting a new lucha libre promotion on 10 days notice with no names on the poster is just not going to work (and Week 1 of Sunday NFL football is not going to help.) There was a couple of change of policies after the first taping: Dorian, Demon and AAA started promoting tomorrow’s taping, the first time the tapings have been promoted in Spanish. (Pretty sure that had been a conscious choice, and not an oversight.) They also revealed the address, 516 S. Anderson St. in Los Angeles. No more emailing to get ticket info, they’ll take whoever just shows up.
That picture also confirms the Vampiro/Striker nonsense announce team.
Sticking Mesias under a mask would explain why AAA hasn’t promoted him for this show. I would assume Ricochet being in the main event means he’s signed, but maybe that’s not a sure thing since he lost.
I would suspect we’re less likely to get spoilers going forward, because the same people might not show up all the time, or might not be allowed to keep showing up.
