The Season 3 finale of Lucha Underground, Ultima Lucha Tres, was incredible and left the audience with many questions in mind. Did Prince Puma definitely leave the Temple? What was going to happen to The Temple as Dario Cueto was killed? And at the same time Pentagon Dark was crowned Lucha Underground Champion. But the new extended trailer the company put online yesterday is fascinating, the Season Premiere on June 13 is going to be epic.
In less than 3 minutes of trailer, new characters, upcoming twists and storylines are teased and this new season is meant to be special. Season 4 is a 22-episode one and was recorded in a new Temple, still in Los Angeles. The whole season was taped in a month, like explained head writer and co-executive producer Chris De Joseph. Prince Puma and Rey Mysterio are not appearing in Season 4. Puma, aka Ricochet, is exploring new opportunities in NXT while Mysterio appeared in WWE and will soon compete in NJPW.
If we take the trailer pic by pic, here’s what we learn.
- Matanza is unchained but in a new place
- An Indiana Jones-dressed Johnny Mundo is accompanied by Taya and they’re lowering a rope down a hole to rescue someone. Taya has a weapon who is later revealed to be a baseball bat. “Wera Loca” is written on it.
- The man with the black glove we saw in the limo in Season 3 is back. He’s revealed to be Kevin Kross. Next to him, inside a ball of twigs, there’s a masked person laughing.
- The Queen of The Reptile Tribe, Kobra Moon, is mobing like a snake
- Someone is looking at Fénix through a hole in a door.
- Ricky Mandel of The Worldwide Underground is playing with a doll. He seems to have lost his mind.
- The Rabbit Tribe seems to be lost in a surreal “Alice in Wonderland” kind of maze.
- Aerostar is standing in a dark room. He’s then secretly meeting with King Cuerno and Dragon Azteca Jr. Azteca is trying to convince Cuerno to let Aerostar take the gauntlet.
- Someone is breaking chains to open some doors, maybe the owner of the New Temple
- Mariposa is pouring water on the screen but, in a very Flashdance scene, the water is falling on an unknown woman.
- Catrina is in King Cuerno’s lair, trying to get the gauntlet.
In the groundbreaking scenes,
