For the last few months the talk of the wrestling has been about well really TNA and a limited amount of other things at this current moment. However, the talk of wrestling can change on a dime and I will try to do so right now by making the talk turn back to Lucha Underground. Now though some people don't like how different Lucha Underground as compared to other televised American companies one has to keep in mind that they are the Mexican companies AAA's expansion into the states.
To explain things a little further a few years ago AAA was looking expand into the United States, but well the early details aren't known. However, this was the early stages of planning for what would become Lucha Underground in the US. So Lucha Underground is an extension of AAA, but airs in the United States. Now onto my point, well for the last few months the tapes of Lucha have been airing leading up to Lucha's season finale sometime in August and then they would move on to Season 2 later in the year.
Here is where the issue was nobody outside of the company that the wrestlers knew when or if the next season was going to start so that prevented the wrestlers from taking independent dates, because of the TV Tapings. But they didn't know when the tapings were going to happen so they really couldn't take any dates without the possibility of having to cancel them in favor of Lucha. So you can see the dilemma facing the company as the talent was being left in the dark and possibly turning against management.
But, of course when the chips are down the management team is their to help as a top executive with Lucha Underground was the most recent guest on the Steve Austin podcast and cleared up all the issues. As found out that the El Rey Network actually the show for around 40 episodes this season which is more then Season 1, and we also found out that the new season will start sometime in October.
