Lucha Underground (February 25, 2015)

On occasion I get on Lucha Underground kicks where it’s the only wrestling show I want to watch. I’m currently in the midst of one so here’s a review of the February 25, 2015 episode or Season 1 Episode 16 if you’re nasty.

Lucha Underground (February 18, 2015)

After a quick recap of the angles we might have forgotten we head to the Temple where once again Mariachi El Bronx are getting the crowd amped up. Matt Striker and Vampiro are with us to call the action. They talk about bullshit for a bit before throwing it to the ring for action.

BC Killer vs. Ruby Raze (SBW Brawl In Newhall February 28, 2015)

Time for some random intergender wrestling. I’ve never seen Ruby Raze before but BC Killer showed up in my new favorite terrible wrestling promotion, Urban Wrestling Federation.

I guess the story here is that Ruby Raze is undefeated in this promotion and asked for a match against BC Killer.

The match begins with BC (who appears to be wearing a garbage bag) telling Raze to go back to the locker room. She responds by forearming him in the face. He says she gets one of those. She responds to this by unloading on him with forearms.

She runs wild for awhile, hitting a big spear for a near fall, but ultimately gets cut off. BC Killer does some power moves on her and some clubbering, and some fat guy wrestling moves and ultimately picks up the win after hitting a Vader Bomb.

We get a bit of the post match as well where Raze offers a handshake as a show of good sportsmanship only for BC Killer to take her head off with a clothesline.

Winner: BC Killer

Ruby Raze looked pretty good on offense and I wouldn’t be adverse to seeing more of her matches. BC Killer on the other hand didn’t really show me anything here that I haven’t seen countless other “big man” wrestlers do before. [*½]

Lucha Underground (January 28, 2015)

We open on a sunset-lit gymnasium. Cage, looking jacked as fuck, is doing curls when Dario Cueto opens. Cueto tells him, “I like a man who takes the bull by the horns, but, you my friend, you take the bull by the huevos,” and gives him a championship match against Prince Puma tonight.

Cage tells him that he will win the title tonight because he’s a machine. This week his declaration of being a machine is paired with a hard zoom on his eyes like something out of a 1970s kung fu movie. This owns so hard.

Time from Lucha Underground!

Lucha Underground (January 21, 2015)

The episode of Lucha Underground I watched the other day kind of put me on a Lucha Underground kick so here’s another review of an episode from Season 1. Again we kick things off with a brief recap of what’s been going on in the Temple. This time the video package is focused on Big Ryck, Pentagon Jr., Drago and King Cuerno, so I’m guessing those are the dudes that are going to be featured in this episode.

Lucha Underground (January 14, 2015)

It’s been awhile since I’ve watched any Lucha Underground so it’s time to rectify that. We start things off with a prestige drama-esque previously on Lucha Underground recap that shows us stuff that previously happened that will undoubtedly be important in understanding this particular installment. Since it’s been over a month since I last checked out an episode from this season of LU this recap thing is invaluable to me.

Lucha Underground (January 7, 2015)

We begin things this week with people in traditional Aztec garb (I guess) dancing about the ring while drummers drum. Dario Cueto is in the middle of the ring with the new Lucha Underground Championship. He tells us that tonight we are going to crown the first Lucha Underground Champion in a match he came up with completely on his own: AZTEC WARFARE!
