X-Pac opens today’s show by talking about Lucha Underground. Several Lucha Underground talents are still held in purgatory by the promotion, whose executives still haven’t decided whether to film a fifth season.
X-Pac says he has basically forgotten about Lucha Underground at this point because the promotion has been out of sight and out of mind. The talents who signed 7 and 8 season deals before season one are in a tough spot right now, but X-Pac has no idea why anyone would sign a contract for the long with no guaranteed money. He says talents have to be smarter than that.
PWInsider reported this past week that The Hart Foundation will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. X-Pac loves this decision, and notes that Danny Davis should be inducted as well, partly due to his contributions behind the scenes for a lot of years.
X-Pac mentions that The Undertaker has removed all connections to WWE on his social media accounts, and now lists an email for outside bookings instead. X-Pac points out that this isn’t a big deal. He’s sure Undertaker’s appearances will be separate from any actual indie wrestling shows, to guarantee WWE that their star won’t be associated with any potentially poor shows. The booking company that Undertaker is using also lists WWE as a client on their website so this is all connected.
