More Details on WWE’s Interest in Lucha Underground Talent

As noted, WWE is interested in top Lucha Underground star Ricochet, aka Prince Puma, and Ricochet recently made it known he will not be accepting anymore indy bookings after June, which has lead to speculation he might be WWE bound.

According to The Wrestling Observer, Ricochet is not the only Lucha Underground talent WWE is interested in, and they may pitch talent contracts to various LU talents as they have a long break between LU seasons. WWE reportedly wants at least 5 Mexican talents for the Global Cruiserweight Series, which begins taping in June. That is around the same time as the current season of Lucha Underground ends, as LU talents are prohibited from appearing on TV for other promotions while a current LU season is airing.

Viewership for WWE HOF on USA Network

Last night’s one hour WWE Hall of Fame ceremony broadcast which aired on USA Network, and featured Sting, Snoop Dogg and The Fabulous Freebirds, averaged 1,677,000 viewers.
