This highlight clip from Bloody Johny is great, but it really doesn’t do this match justice. In their first show of 2015, Lucha Underground held an Aztec Warfare match to crown their first ever champion. The rules of the Aztec warfare are simple: the match starts with two wrestlers, or Luchas, and a new Lucha enters the ring every 90 seconds until all 20 competitors have entered the match. A Lucha can only be eliminated by pinfall or submission, and the match is no count outs and no DQ’s. It’s basically the Royal Rumble on steroids. Also, imagine this: an entire show of wrestling. Besides owner/resident grease ball Dario Cueto’s opening promo explaining the rules of the match, the ENTIRE show is the Aztec Warfare match. The only thing I can tell you is that you should go out of your way to watch this match. There are too many highlights for one video or myself to tell you about here, but if you love expert storytelling, high flying action and wrestling in general you will love this match. Also, Aztecs beat a ceremonial drum to countdown every wrestler from 10 until they get into the ring. I don’t think I can love something more.
The best thing about last night’s Lucha Underground? It’s nothing new. Lucha Underground has been the best wrestling show on TV for months, and between them and NXT, it’s proof positive that great wrestling still exists when the people in charge care about the product. I will always be a fan of the WWE, but I’m glad Lucha Underground has created such a fun and exciting alternative.
