  1. To me, this episode night be the one to draw viewers away for good. Having women wrestlers get bloodied in a match was disturbing. Just my opinion.

    • Yup. It was one of the worst shows I’ve seen of theirs. Two squash matches and a bloodfest. I watched Lucha cuz of the wrestling, not the hardcore style. Seems like they want to be ECW. Well, then, have fun going out of business. My wife and I will still watch a few more, but our interest is fading fast. With Roman dominating WWE, all that’s left for us is sporadic NJPW episodes. Sad.
