Season four of Lucha Underground began filming this weekend in Los Angeles and the first taping included surprise debuts, returns and an update on Dario Cueto … sorta.
Sources tell us there was an Aztec Warfare match at the taping which featured Lucha Underground debuts for Tommy Dreamer and former Impact Wrestling star Mr. Pectacular.
In addition, Hernandez and Chavo Guerrero returned to the company and wrestled in the match as well. For those who don’t recall, Hernandez was released from LU in 2015 after he appeared on Impact while still under contract with Lucha Underground.
Independent wrestlers Sammy Guevara, Jason Cade and Sonny Kiss also wrestled at the taping.
For those wondering about the fate Dario Cueto after he was shot at the end of the season three, our sources say the taping kicked off with a ten-bell salute for the Lucha Underground character. However, the ceremony was interrupted by his “father” Antonio Cueto — who was clearly Dario in professional old-man makeup — and he announced the Aztec Warfare match.
We’re told the segment was confusing for most people in attendance, because no one was sure if the actor is just playing a new character in season four or if he’ll be revealed as Dario in the future.
