On who in Lucha Underground he feels he has gelled with the most and done the best work with:

JM: It’s hard for me to pick just one. The rivalry between Johnny Mundo and Prince Puma I think has really defined Lucha Underground. We were the first main event. We’ve had this on going rivalry through the first two seasons and it continues in to the third. Our chemistry is off the chain. If anyone has ever seen us wrestle you know that I have a good time. Especially since Puma can do anything. Creatively there are no limits to what you can do in the ring.

Some of the topics discussed at the top of this week’s WZ Weekly include:

  • TJ Perkins as the Cruiserweight Classic champion
