– The premiere episode of Lucha Underground on the El Rey Network drew 8,000 viewers in the 18-49 demo, according to James Caldwell of PWTorch. That was good enough to make it #2 on the network in that demo for the week. Please note that the number is just for the 18-49 demo, and also doesn’t include the Saturday airing of the show on Unimas.

– King Mo (13-4) will take on Joe Vedepo (4-2) at the upcoming Bellator event on November 15 from San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center. Vedepo will be replacing Tom DeBlass, who was forced to withdraw from the fight after suffering a major cut in training.
“This is just an absolutely blessing,” Vedepo said. “When I got the phone call to fight on November 15, I didn’t even need to hear who the opponent was, I was all in. Mo’s tough as hell, he’s one of the best wrestlers in the sport, but I haven’t stopped training in months and I know this is a chance of a lifetime. I always thrive on coming into the fight as an underdog, and while I have all the respect in the world for a guy like King Mo, underestimating what I bring to the cage would be a huge mistake.”
