Ok other than the brief mention from thecubsfan noted here: (The-W)

Starting mid July, the 16th to be exact, MTV jumps back into wrestling putting Lucha Libre on MTV2. I saw some of the promotional commercials run for it the other day & if the matches are anything like the promo I'll be tuning in. Even for the fans being punched in the face too.

Special this weekend airing at 2pm called Lucha Libre: Behind the Mask.

Looking through the bios on the link one guy stuck out..Marco Corleone, is that the former Mark Jindrak?

Depends on which promo! The shorter one, without the Marco Corleone promo, is actually of AAA and they're not using that promotion. The second one is a bit more accurate.

(Short version is this was supposed to be an AAA show at one point, but now it's not and it's own promotion instead.)

MTV3 wanted to do a lucha show, and they decided to make it bilingual so they could air on MTV2 and split the cost. The luchadors are guys who've left AAA or CMLL unhappy with not being used enough, friends of Marco (yes, the ex-Jindrak) from WCW/Atlanta (Rellik!) and new people. There are talented people, guys I'm looking forward to being on TV again as a lucha dork, but it's quite the random assemblage of men, women, and Mini LA Parks.

They've done two tapings so far for about six weeks of TV. First one was said not to be so good, second one was said to be fun. No idea how it'll look when it gets MTV-ized.

Just caught the Behind the Mask special and so far the show looks promising. They seem to be taking it seriously, even showcasing the exoticos and minis as legitimate threats. It doesn't look like they're Americanizing it too much. Charly Manson has been rechristened Charly Malice and they've added an Arizona native character intent on running all of the Latinos out of Lucha Libre USA but they've stuck with a lot of the Spanish terminology, including technicos and rudos.

The biggest news regarding the show, however, is probably the return of the World's Most Dangerous Announcer: Gary Michael Cappetta on play-by-play!

I subscribe to Dish Network and get Telemundo and a few other channels that broadcast lucha. I'll watch whenever I can, but I simply can't follow the broadcast because my Spanish is too rusty. I've said for years that if someone would broadcast lucha with dubbed English announcing and sub-titled promos that I'd never miss a show. (Same thing for Puro.)

I'll have to give the M2 show a try. I watched a couple of dozen episodes of NWA Showcase on Colours before I gave up on that, so I'm willing to watch anything in the hopes of seeing decent wrestling.

You're biased. I get it. I got it the first time. Another counter argument isn't going to enlighten me further as I've seen the picture you've painted. Ergo, why are you trying to convince me I shouldn't have enjoyed what I watched? Eh, maybe....
