Ancient traditions are met with violence in this cutting edge Lucha Style wrestling league. The best fighters from around the world, including AAA Luchadores Fenix, Sexy Star, Pentagon Jr., Drago, and the legendary Blue Demon Jr. come to bout in this underground fight club. Watch as the masked heroes and villains battle it out in the Temple. Welcome to Lucha Underground
Dario Cueto is the owner and proprietor of Lucha Underground. His crowning achievement resides in his “temple” in Boyle Heights. With seemingly endless amounts of money, Cueto has brought the best to his arena to watch them all tear each other apart. Cueto’s bloodlust has given him the best seat in the house with his office mere feet from the ring.
Konnan has competed at the highest level in Mexico winning major championships all over the country and headlining against the biggest stars in the sport. Konnan is in the driver’s seat, and along with his protégé, Prince Puma, this duo is bringing a mix of Old School and New School to Lucha Underground. Orale!
Fenix is a young Luchador who has achieved great momentum in the last few years. He has positioned himself in star places in AAA, thanks to being the owner of a new original style never before seen in Mexican version of the sport. He has perfected an aerial style, which includes variations of corkscrews, back flips and front flips including the “Salto del Fenix”
The hometown boy from Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, California is poised to change Lucha Libre forever. There’s no move too dangerous, no opponent too tough, and no challenge too daunting. While not much is known about the man behind the mask, what we know about Prince Puma inside the ring leaves us wanting all those answers and more.
With an array of Championships on his mantle, the parkour pro-wrestler has accepted Dario Cueto’s invitation to see if he is the world’s greatest fighter. While his mouth tends to draw the ire of his opponents, nobody can question that Johnny Mundo defies gravity and innovates offense at any moment
Sexy Star is the beautiful yet dangerous result of years venturing in the skills of defense and attack. She is one of the most applauded female wrestlers by all. Sexy Star is a career athlete because the passion for the sport cannot be measured with a title. It was a calling, a magnetic attraction between her and the ring.
Vampiro is one of the biggest stars in the history of Mexico and isn’t even Mexican. In his prime, there was no man more violent, suicidal, or willing to do anything to beat his opponent than Vampiro. He has wrestled and held titles in multiple countries and continents, and he offers a unique perspective on the game.
The schoolteacher turned pro-wrestler has seen everything inside and outside of the ring during his career. Matt Striker hung up the boots for the best seat in the house, the commentator’s desk. With a wealth of knowledge from all fighting styles, who better than Striker to guide us through the chaos Dario Cueto has planned for “Lucha Underground.” Class is in session!
Melissa Santos is a versatile and talented Latino actress, model, dancer, host and wrestler from West Covina, CA.. She was a finalist on Nuestra Belleza Latina 2010 representing Nicaragua and has been featured on multiple series such as “East Los High” Season 2 on the HULU network and “Wow Women of Wrestling” on the CW Las Vegas.
Chavo Guerrero Jr.
Chavo Guerrero is a third generation luchadore from one of the most famous families in Lucha Libre. Chavo has wrestled on every continent, and has held several major championships. There can’t be Lucha Libre without a Guerrero, so Dario Cueto has brought the Mexican Warrior to his battleground to compete against the best fighters from around the globe.
Little is known of Mil Muertes, or even where the name came from, which translates to “1000 Deaths.” With a name like that, we can only expect dark and evil from Mil.
When you see Mil Muertes, his girlfriend Catrina is never far behind. As beautiful as she is sadistic, don’t take your eyes off the face that dates a thousand deaths. With her trademark “kiss” goodbye, Catrina feeds off of Mil’s victims one lick at a time.
Drago is a dead dragon that has come back to life as a human being. With his fearsome green flame and a corkscrew that leaves his fans breathless, he looms as the new idol that lucha libre has been waiting for.
Through the years, Pentagon Jr. has exercised his body and mind to learn the mysteries of harmony and combat. He is a gladiator with elusive killer technique and movements, and anyone who dares to confront him will be attacked from all sides and will succumb to his mastery of the ring.
Big Ryck was born in Guyana, but now hails from right down the street in Boyle Heights. Ryck has fought all of his life – from the streets to the biggest arenas and stadiums around the world. He and his crew have accepted the open invitation by Dario Cueto as part of Cueto’s Global Initiative to find the most violent athletes in the world, as they shed blood for his enjoyment.
Son of Havoc
Son of Havoc is a very violent man who has come to Cueto’s arena ready for war and he believes that he is a man that is not to be messed with. Although some have called him heartless, someone has his heart, his girlfriend Ivelisse.
Known for her villainous persona, Ivelisse is not one to shy from confrontation. As tough as she is pretty, she plans to bring her fiery energy and skills to the Temple. She has wrestled the best from all over the world and came to Lucha Underground to prove she is the baddest bitch in the building!
Blue Demon Jr.
Strength, class and tradition are the characteristics that unite the Son of the Blue Legend. His quality and the grandeur of his personality have taken him around the world as a vibrant symbol of the professional Lucha Libre sport.
