ATR # 29: Ultima Lucha Awesomeness

This week on Around the Ring we discuss Lucha Underground’s season finale Ultima Lucha, why this show has been so good, the impact that it has had and will have on the wrestling business, and the What Culture article 10 Lessons WWE Could Learn from Lucha Underground; a really fun episode of ROH including The Young Bucks, AJ Styles, War Machine, Cedric Alexander, and an excellent main event segment that started with a match in “headlock city” between Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole with Christopher Daniels on commentary that quickly broke down and turned into a tag team match with a reunited Future Shock taking on The Addiction, highlighted by the continued slow-burn face turn by Adam Cole; more setting up for TakeOver: Brooklyn on NXT including a good match between Bayley and Charlotte, more great Bull Dempsey vignettes, a absolute travesty of justice with the announcement that The Vaudevillains would be challenging for the tag titles at TakeOver, our first look at Uhaa Nation in NXT and his new name Apollo Crews, and the reveal that Tyler Breeze’s opponent will be Jushin Thunder Liger; a descent episode of Raw filled with very nice Roddy Piper tributes (the best one coming from The Miz of all people); and finally a mini review of the new Frank Turner album Positive Songs for Negative People.

Listen here.
