PRO WRESTLING: ‘Lucha Underground’ to crown champion on El Rey Network

Dario Cueto declares “Aztec Warfare” on the ninth all-new episode of El Rey Network’s original wrestling series “Lucha Underground,” premiering 8 p.m. EST Wednesday, Jan. 7.

Witness 19 luchadores facing off to become the first “Lucha Underground” champion. Starting with just two men, the ring will be invaded every 90 seconds with a new luchadore, eliminating one-by-one until just one man stands.

The only rule? Anything goes.

The new 39-episode series from Emmy Award-winning producer Mark Burnett combines ancient lucha libre tradition, extraordinary athleticism and a flare for theatrics in each hour-long episode. Every Wednesday, viewers will have a backstage and ringside seat as masked villains and heroes tell their stories while facing off to battle for wrestling supremacy resulting in programming that is unlike anything else on the screen.
