Triple Z takes a look at possible story lines for "Lucha Underground" after they left many cliffhangers at the end of their biggest event "Ultima Lucha."
"Lucha Underground" is the alternative for pro wrestling fans. It's has everything WWE currently lacks, edginess and violence. "Lucha Underground" is the true "Total Nonstop Action" program, when you get a 60 minute time slot and your able to fit five matches in and all five matches are good solid matches. You are doing your job correctly! "Lucha Underground" is a modern day ECW but without the counterculture and the unnecessary hardcore matches. The program mixes storytelling with violence. It has a completely different presentation which sets it apart. I could rave and rave about "Lucha Underground" all day but I'm here to examine possible story lines that could happen for Season 2 "The make it or break it" season for most TV shows.
The pairing of Melina and Johnny Mundo (fka John Morrison)
During the groundbreaking "Ultima Lucha" event, Johnny Mundo who started off as the top baby face in "Lucha Underground" now a heel went toe to toe with Alberto El Patron who right now is the most over guy in Mexico and "Lucha Underground." The match was good but the heel had to be creative to get the victory and Melina came out of nowhere and attacked Alberto El Patron to help Mundo get the victory. The aftermath caused a very angry Alberto to attack Johnny Mundo and unleash a side we haven't seen from him in awhile. When Matt Striker (The lead commentator on "Lucha Underground") was calling the match he referred to her as Melina also said they had a past relationship and are known to many wrestling fans. Striker called it like it was, and it was very beneficial in the long run.
Vampiro is Pentagon Jr. Master. Which means no more Vampiro on commentary…
Pentagon Jr. was making many wrestlers his sacrifice when he would break their arms with a submission each week. Pentagon said he did it for his master. The wonder started to build up who is his master? One week was different, Pentagon was in a fight with Sexy Star and he almost locked in the dreadful submission. Thankfully Vampiro rushed the ring out of his commentary position to fight Pentagon Jr. and for the weeks after Pentagon Jr. was tormenting Vampiro, Vampiro decided to challenge Pentagon Jr. to a "Ciero Miedo" match which means "No Fear" in Spanish. When I witnessed this "Ciero Miedo" match, I thought for sure it wasn't going to be hardcore. I was clinching after every move, I mean for real Vampiro is 48 and they did a flaming table spot. After that Vampiro was done. Pentagon Jr. won the match and afterwards things got a little disturbing. Vampiro insisted on Pentagon Jr. to break his arm, Pentagon Jr. went over by Vampiro and did exactly that with his submission. Pentagon Jr. made a sacrifice to his master which would turn out to be Vampiro. During the "cliffhanger" segment it showed Pentagon asking his master "Where to next?" and Vampiro looking twisted saying "I know a place". This pairing will be the 2nd most interesting pairing in season two of "Lucha Underground." This new storyline will bring a new hardcore twist to "Lucha Underground". Also means Vampiro similar to Konnan will be a manager and seemingly will not be on commentary. Matt Striker will have a new partner which will be interesting to see who it is.
Rey Mysterio will be "The Savior" of The Temple
This by far is my boldest prediction for season two. It has been rumored for awhile that Rey Mysterio would be heading to "Lucha Underground". I got a couple reasons why.
Expansion outside "The Temple"
Big questions surround season two of 'Lucha Underground'. Expansion is in the works, as multiple reports say that the company is looking for different locations other than the warehouse in Los Angeles. Possible locations being discussed are Texas, and other areas in the Southwest. Even Mexico is being discussed which would make sense from the point AAA is located in Mexico. My prediction is that major expansion will happen for 'Lucha Underground' during season two.
