I spoke with Matt Striker at the Lucha Underground Temple about working on the show since the beginning.
I think the way we’re going in society, people are starting to dare to go right when everyone is going straight. I think the powerful people behind this concept were so daring, so bold, so brave, so confident to say let’s give this a shot. After a while if you drink milk every single day after that 8th or 9th day, man a glass of orange juice tastes great. I think people saw that and that’s why it’s took so long. Sometimes the best things come to those who wait.
Striker also spoke about first hearing the pitch for the show and if he is able to go back and work traditional wrestling shows after experiencing the Lucha Underground format. See it all in the video below:
