16. Will Lucha Underground Be A Part Of The Talent Exchange Program With Impact Wrestling?
During a recent interview with Interactive Wrestling Radio, Lucha Underground promoter Vampiro talked about the upcoming season of Lucha Underground and the talent exchange program of Impact Wrestling. Below are the highlights:
The return of Lucha Underground Season 3 on El Rey on May 31st:
“I think everybody’s kind of waiting on it, you know what I mean? There’s such a cool vibe around the show. After such a long time, people are getting used to the idea that we are a TV show based on wrestling and there is going to be a season split. I think in this day and age, it is refreshing to have that. The other companies that are going strong, you really don’t mind it if you miss a week or two or even a month. It is almost too much sometimes. To have us coming back, we’ve got people ready for it. It is a pretty good feeling. We’re all motivated!”
If Lucha Underground stars will be part of a talent exchange with Impact Wrestling:
“No, that is not going to happen. That is a deal between AAA and Impact. Impact will have matches on AAA shows, for example. We will integrate some of our talent into TNA. Hopefully, eventually, way down the line, maybe do some inter-company angles. Baby steps. We want to do it right.”
