Anyone going to check this out? It's an interesting group of talent they've assembled. Here are the teams:

Mexican Dream Team: Alberto El Patron, Rey Mysterio Jr, and Myzteziz

Team Mexico II: Psycho Clown, El Hijo de Fantasma, and El Texano Jr.

Team Mexico III: Solar, Blue Demon Jr., and Dr. Wagner Jr.

Team USA: Matt Hardy, Mr. Anderson, and Johnny Mundo

Team USA II: ACH, Moose, and Brian Cage

Team NOAH: Yoshihiro Takayama, Taiji Ishimori, and Atsushi Kotoge

Team All Japan: Tiger Mask III, Kenzo Suzuki, and Masamune

Team Rest of the World: Angelico, El Mesias, and Drew Galloway

My guess would be the finals are the Dream Team against Team USA I, but I have no idea what I'm talking about.

of all people, mr anderson?

even if this doesnt end up being particularly great, it at least looks very interesting.

The audio fuck up is driving me insane

everything about it is ridiculous, the spanish and english on the same audio channel, the spanish LOUNDER than the english commentary and the non-commentary sound so muted. that's aaa.

strikers so proactive, what a guy

Enjoyed that opener. Now I have a weird desire to see a Rey Jr vs Takayama match.

You watch Lucha Underground. You knew what to expect.

this is a very different level of ridiculousness

Psycho Clown vs Moose is the definition of a random matchup

May 24th, 2015, 7:15 PM
Well that went well

vamp wasn't selfish with whatever he's on tonight

I love the story he just told about Kanemoto since it is an open secret of how much Kanemoto hated his time in Mexico.

Is this worth tracking down?

ehhh maybe. the matches are pretty fun though not great. the spectacle of the crazy technical difficulties combined with vampiro's high off his ass commentary is also worth seeing. its definitely a fun watch live.

but ugh, the TNA team to the final.

a longish intermission and fairly lame third place match has taken the wind out of the show a bit. hope the finals deliver.

the sudden death thing was a dumb decision. why do i want to see a trios tournament end in a series of 3 five minute singles matches?

finals was disappointing, third place match sucked. everything before that was a lot of fun.
