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.

Today I continue my haphazard exploration of IMPACT/TNA/Whatever by taking a look at the August 2012 PPV, Hardcore Justice. We kick things off with a video package of people hitting each other with plunder while text on the screen promises us, “THERE WILL BE BLOOD!” I’m going to hold you to that TNA Hardcore Justice!

Watching the entire run of Wrestling Society X episodes has left me with a strong desire to get back into Lucha Underground so that’s what we’re doing here today! Let’s return to the Temple to see what everyone’s favorite luchadors are up to!

I somehow skipped this episode of Nitro while playing along at home with the Keep it 2000 podcast and since they’ve closed up shop for the foreseeable future I figured I might as well fill in this gap in my own reviews.

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.

We start things off with clips of what went down with Goldberg and Russo last week before we go live to Vince Russo’s office. Russo’s on the phone with “Scott,” imploring him to relax. Jarrett walks in and is all pissed off that Goldberg cost him the title last week. He wants Goldberg tonight. Russo says that everyone does and told him to go wait for Nash.

The show begins with a ten-bell salute as a picture of Gordon Solie along with the text “Gordon Solie 1929-2000,” is displayed. I can’t believe that in WCW 2000 someone had the good sense to do something as subdued and classy as this, but that’s actually what we get here to memorialize one of the all time greats in wrestling announcing.

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!

Time for another goddamn episode of WCW Nitro from the year 2000. No recap package this week as we go directly from the Nitro logo to an arena in Cleveland, Ohio where too much pyro is exploding and Tony Schiavone welcomes us to the show.

We’re at the Sugar Mill in New Orleans for this crossover event between Impact (née TNA) and Lucha Underground. Our hosts for the evening are Matt Striker and Josh Mathews. ECW ’09 commentary team all up in this mug!
Melissa Santos and some random blonde lady who is apparently Impact’s backstage interview lady come out to hype the crowd. Since this is on Twitch instead of basic cable Melissa Santos tells the crowd to make “some fucking noise,” or something like that before introducing the competitors for the first match.
