In the new teaser for Lucha Underground airing tonight, it is revealed that there’s a new boss, same as the old boss? Nope. Antonio is Dario’s dad as he swears revenge and has the luchadors battling it out for his pleasure in the new Temple.
So much Lucha Lucha Lucha to discuss.
Where it ended
The Season 3 finale, aka Ultima Lucha Tres, is driving this season’s key storylines and has nursed and nurtured loads of new feuds that will see teams of luchadors battle royale like never before. The last season finale saw the crowning of a new champion, Pentagon Dark.
There was also the murder/death of proprietor Dario Cueto.
What to expect
Aerial high-flying action with a host of new blood infiltrating the Temple. The gods march closer to war as humanity’s outlook seems a bit bleak.
According to El Rey: “A cataclysmic battle is on the horizon and no one will be spared from destruction.”
What we know is reigning champ Pentagon Dark must defend his Lucha Underground Championship as Antonio Cueto mourns son Dario Cueto’s demise. The Monster Matanza who is Dario’s brother will be unleashed at his every command.
Fans of Lucha know that the storylines and the characters are way over the top. The beauty is that Lucha Underground has become a hybrid wrestling sport that blends American WWE splash with the deep cultural and historic base of Lucha Libre from Mexico. It’s all American.
Where else can you see someone like the luchador Drago, a man-dragon green as a shamrock? They have become living superheroes whose actions literally feel like a comic book or graphic novel have jumped to 3-D and are alive. It’s an exhilarating watch.
