Lucha Underground is truly a unique product that offers something very different from a wrestling show. The way the product is presented is fast paced, creative, and there isn’t anything else like it in the industry.
Recently, LU’s Executive Producer Chris DeJoseph appeared on “The Ross Report” to discuss all things Lucha and gave some insight into the idea that we could see Lucha Underground: The Movie eventually.
You can listen to the full podcast episode between JR and DeJoseph right here. Below are some of the highlights:
Do you consider Lucha Underground a wrestling show or a show where wrestling is performed?
“I guess you could say it’s a show about a wrestling promotion—and there’s wrestling on it. I guess that’s how I would consider it first, but above all, it’s a show. It’s a unique show. It’s a different take on professional wrestling.”
Are the rumors true about there being a Lucha Underground Movie eventually?
“There have been plenty of talks regarding a Lucha Underground Movie. That’s something that—in the beginning stages of creating this universe—was a long term goal. I think it’s definitely a possibility. Do I know when it’s going to happen? I don’t. But I think that would be pretty cool.”
Do you think WWE could potentially release their wrestling in movies?
