One of the CRAZIEST, most different beginnings to any promotion I’ve ever seen. There is a kid in a warehouse who is being beaten up by these two thugs when a MASKED WRESTLER saves the day with a tilt-a-whirl headscissors and a lucha-style armdrag, because you know – that happens in real fights. Anyways, he finishes the fight with an airplane spin and slams the guy down. Now once the dust settles, the masked wrestler extends a hand to the kid he just saved and tells him to come with him.

Next, they air a fantastic piece on the tradition of lucha libre as the luchadore fills this kid in on its rich history. There’s a presumably evil owner named Dario Cueto who appeared at AAA TripleMania last year trying to sign away luchadores to wrestle for him in America for Lucha Underground. We all know how well that turned out the first time, right? With all that out of the way, the kid is offered to join this luchadore in Lucha Underground.

We switch to some stock footage of Los Angeles until we enter the Lucha Underground Arena. Very reality show-style cinematography.

Your hosts are Matt Striker and Vampiro. The first thing that even feels familiar are seeing these two men with a normal wrestling show introduction.
