Breaking News: Rey Mysterio Signs With Lucha Underground

Lucha Underground released a trailer for their second season last night, and it had a big reveal at the end:

Rey Mysterio will be coming to Lucha Underground. We had been waiting for this announcement for months, and it’s finally official. Big addition for LU, Mysterio gives them a legitimate star to build their promotion around. It’s especially big after losing Alberto Del Rio to WWE.

I remain skeptical of LU’s longterm business prospects, but Mysterio could be the game changer they need. If LU is going to survive, they need more than just TV. But Mysterio is the kind of star who can sell tickets and pay-per-views, which are the additional revenue streams LU needs to be a viable promotion.

Lucha Underground Season 2 will debut on January 27 on El Rey Network.
