Lucha Underground star Johnny Mundo recently spoke to Jim Fritz of Sporting News about Lucha Underground’s plans for the future and more. You can check out the full interview here along with some highlights below.
How he explains Lucha Underground to people:
“There’s always resistance. (laughs) Jim Cornette did an interview about how he’ll never understand what Lucha Underground is. There’s traditionalists and longtime people that are mostly in the business that have the most resistance towards Lucha Underground. The way that I convince or explain to anyone what Lucha Underground is is to just say you need to watch it. It’s self-explanatory. If you’ve never been to a live wrestling show, you need to go to one. To understand Lucha Underground, you need to watch it.”
If he wants to see Lucha Underground hit the road:
“I was a little hesitant about it but the South by Southwest event went so well that I feel like we represented Lucha Underground at that live event very well. For people who have never seen Lucha Underground or lucha libre for that matter, coming to a live wrestling show it’s an experience that has no equal. It is something that I hope we continue to do and do more of. And I hope we do it slowly. I think for stuff like that, it’s quality over quantity.”
