Considered one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, Rey Mysterio has helped revolutionize pro-wrestling with his rapid-fire moves and high-flying style. A 25-year ring veteran, Mysterio made his professional debut at the age of 14, and would go on to win 21 titles (between WWE and WCW), giving him icon status among his fellow athletes and fans. Having already beaten the best everywhere else, Mysterio joined Lucha Underground to climb to the top and add another world title to his incredible resume.
Ancient tradition, extraordinary athleticism, and a flare for theatrics combine in El Rey Network’s wrestling series, Lucha Underground. The riveting original introduces American audiences to the high-flying aerial maneuvers, slingshot moves, dramatic masks, intricate, rapid-fire combinations and distinctive wrestling techniques of lucha libre, one of Mexico’s most popular sports. Fans have a ringside seat as masked villains and heroes face off to battle for wrestling supremacy. Lucha Underground focuses on the artistry, originality, intense action and over-the-top characters that have come to define this phenomenal fan-favorite.
