Cero Miedo to Lick of Death: The Top Ten Moments of Lucha Underground Season 2 ranked

Lucha Underground is a cult. Lucha Underground is pro wrestling. Lucha Underground is a Robert Rodriguez inspired cinematic serial. In a sports entertainment marketplace competing for both your eyeballs and dollars, Lucha Underground is a living organism that catches your attention in a crowded field.

Part Mexican Lucha Libre wrestling, part El Mariachi homage, part extreme wrestling style, part telenovela drama all smashed into a blender is what makes Lucha Underground interesting. For lapsed pro wrestling fans caught on the WWE hamster wheel, Lucha Underground offers a very different alternative.

Season one of Lucha Underground debuted in October of 2014 and ran off 37 episodes before their two-part season finale on the Robert Rodriguez founded El Rey network. For a pro wrestling show or a TV series, Lucha Underground’s first season became a critically acclaimed indie hit.

An Underground fight club called The Temple based in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles where the promoter feeds on violence? The end of days, murder, an undercover police investigation, a werewolf, seven legendary tribes, dragons, kidnapping, torture, snake people, prescription drug use, a dark lord, were just a few of the subplots and moments that made believers blur the lines between holy shit and this is awesome.

Lucha Underground is a cinematic wrestling cult. Season two of Lucha Underground concludes this week with the last installment of a three-part finale dubbed “Ultima Lucha Dos”.
