Johnny Mundo Talks Lucha Underground On Netflix & What He Wants Coming To Season 4

Johnny Mundo recently spoke with Scott Fishman of TVInsider.com and spoke about Lucha Underground moving to Netflix and more.

See what he had to say below:

Lucha Underground coming to Netflix:

“It’s finally happening,” Mundo said. “Netflix never had anything like this because I always looked at Lucha Underground as a hybrid between an episodic TV show and a pro wrestling show. We’ve got a one-hour show, which is different than the traditional two- or three-hour wrestling show. And it moves like a TV show. I felt from day one it would be a perfect fit for Netflix.”

On Lucha Underground Season 4:

“There are so many things I want to see happen,” he said. “I hope in the future we do some touring, upgrades to the Temple where instead of 500 people there is room for a thousand or 1,500. We could change venues. Touring is exciting. Working with bigger sponsors is exciting. For me, if they change the Temple, they can bring a whole new set of challenges or things for me to jump off of and do parkour and integrate it into matches. The opportunity to do more with vignettes. There is the potential of doing movies about the origins of the stars of Lucha Underground, which has been discussed before by creative. The deal with Netflix can open up so many doors. I’m just really happy to be a part of it.”
