The following is the latest backstage news coming out of the new Lucha Underground show, according to The Wrestling Observer:
-Former WWE Diva Angela Fong will be working for the promotion, and she will likely be using her real name. There are also talks to bring in top indy wrestler Brian Cage.
-Former WWE star Alberto Del Rio, now known as El Patron Alberto, who is signed with AAA, will likely be used at Lucha Underground tapings at some point.
-There was initial criticism coming out of the first set of TV tapings that the promotion was not “Lucha enough,” so officials brought in more Lucha names to showcase a more all-Lucha Libre style matches.
Backstage agent Chavo Guerrero, however, has pushed for talents to slow it down in the ring, despite criticism that the talent is being pushed to wrestle a more WWE oriented style.
-With regards to a Lucha Underground Championship, it’s being said a title belt should be introduced later in the year.
