Our week-long look at Lucha Underground comes to a conclusion with a dream match nobody ever expected to see. It’s the living legend Rey Mysterio Jr. going head-to-head with one of the most successful superstars in Lucha Underground’s short history, Prince Puma. But this bout isn’t about belts—it’s not even about respect. It’s Prince Puma […]

DWN Match of the Day, 9/10/2016: Zero Fear Match (Ciero Miedo)

Ciero Miedo is Pentagon Jr’s catchphrase, and it means “Zero Fear.” Pentagon began a blood-feud with Lucha Underground broadcaster Vampiro early in season one, which led to this highly irregular “Ciero Miedo Match” wherein anything goes. If you’re a fan of Japanese Death Matches, then this is right up your alley! Puma and Vampiro wage […]

Pentagon Jr. went on an extended hiatus toward the beginning of season two, but returned stronger than ever thanks to the guidance of his master Vampiro.

Alberto El Patron could be en route back to Lucha Underground and AAA, now that the former WWE Champion is apparently gone from World Wrestling Entertainment. Alberto wasn’t around long in Lucha, but he made quite an impression during the first season. Today we’ve got a hard-hitting brawl between former Superstars Alberto and Johnny Mundo, […]

Pentagon Jr. and Prince Puma are undoubtedly the most popular professional wrestlers on the Lucha Underground brand. If Underground released a video game—Pentagon and Puma would be the first playable characters. If they released action figures—Pentagon and Puma would comprise series one. They’re unequivocally head and shoulders above the competition in the eyes of the […]

DWN Match of the Day, 9/6/2016: Lucha Underground Championship Match

Prince Puma was the first-ever Lucha Underground Champion and today we’ve got one of his earlier title defenses, against the equally-impressive and massively popular Fenix. Fenix—a future champion himself—puts up one hell of a fight in this battle for supremacy, however it’s clear to see why Prince Puma is the standard bearer for the brand. […]

DWN Match of the Day, 9/5/2016: Lucha Underground Submission Match

Pentagon Jr. is considered by many—including yours truly—to be the face of Lucha Underground. His superstardom and celebrity has evolved directly from his involvement with Lucha Underground, whereas other household names were largely established elsewhere. Pentagon has had an incredible two seasons with Lucha Underground, but it all started when he set his sights on […]

Lucha Underground has an enormous roster and today we’ve got the Gift of the Gods Championship on the line with seven participants gunning for the belt.

Our random wrestling search via Google has yielded some pretty weird results for this week’s abnormal “Match of the Day” segment, perhaps none WEIRDER than this match from what is believed to be the late 1950s-to-early 1960s. It features a wrestler by the name of Ricki Star who was a former ballet dancer-turned-wrestler. Here he […]
