Kana & Minoru Suzuki vs. Syuri & Yoshiaki Fujiwara (Kana Produce ProMania Party October 7, 2014)

Before she became the longest reigning champion in NXT history and beat Goldberg’s streak, Asuka wrestled as Kana in Japan. On occasion she would play booker and book her own shows. This match is from one such card.

While other bookers/wrestlers would perhaps be more inclined to book themselves as worldbeaters, Kana here books herself to get roughed up by a 60 something year old Yoshiaki Fujiwara and on occasion, slapped around by her own partner, Minoru Suzuki in this mixed tag team match from 2014.

Lucha Underground (December 10, 2014)

We kick things off with a recap of the action from last week which is helpful for me because I last watched LU like four or five months ago. From there we head to the Temple for action!

Danny Trejo is ringside as King Cuerno makes his way to the ring. Tonight Cuerno is going up against Super Fly in his first Lucha Underground match.

Darin Corbin vs. Nicholas Valentino (Olde Wrestling August 1, 2014)

This might be the greatest concept for an indie wrestling promotion today. Purists will probably be all like, “Ew this is not wrestling!” but fuck those guys.

There’s room for this and there’s room for Five Star Mat Classics® and there’s room for CZW guys hitting each other with shit and there’s room for Lucha Underground soap operas. It’s all wrestling and it’s all fun.

Lucha Underground (December 3, 2014)

We begin things backstage where Ezekiel “Big Ryck” Jackson is signing a contract with Dario Cueto. Dario tells him, “When I invited Johnny Mundo to Lucha Underground, I wanted to use him as an example that no matter the talent, the reputation, the flash, no one is safe. Put everyone on notice because violence is my favorite kind of entertainment.“ Champagne gets busted out and Big Ryck lights up a cigar.

It’s Lucha Underground!

Lucha Underground (November 26, 2014)

Lucha Underground begins with Konnan, entering Dario Cueto’s office. The one time Wolfpac member tells Cueto that he stopped Prince Puma from coming into Cueto’s office and wrecking house on him after Cisco and Castro attacked Puma last week.

Dario offers Konnan a drink, but Konnan turns him down. Cueto tells him that Castro and Cisco for Big Ryck, not him and that he’s got no beef with Puma. Konnan then says that he wants a match…Puma vs. Big Ryck in a Boyle Heights Street Fight and asks Dario if he knows what a Boyle Height Street Fight is. Before Dario can reply, “I’m assuming it’s like a South Philly Street Fight or a Chicago Street Fight or any of the myriad of other geographically based street fights that exist in pro-wrestling,” Konnan tells him that it’s a fight, not a wrestling match and that anything goes.

Dario Cueto is amenable to this and agrees to the match and then goes to take a sip from his booze, but Konnan snatches the glass out of his hands and is like, “You know what? I think I will take that drink after all,” and then chugs it and leaves the office. Dario has a look of disgust on his face and dumps the ice and liquor dregs from the glass into a trashcan.
