UPDATE: A new report has additional detail on MLW’s plans for Azteca Underground and their taping today in LA. PWInsider has confirmed that the company filmed vignettes with Cesar Duran, the former Dario Cueto, and are set to begin production on their Azteca Underground plans this fall.

According to the site, the plan from MLW is to maintain the content’s cinematic feel but will cut out the more outlandish science fiction/fantasy content that was seen on Luncha Underground. The report notes that the idea behind their approach is that you will need to suspend disbelief to a degree, but it will be “more grounded and gritty.”

ORIGINAL: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that MLW will begin taping content in Los Angeles soon for Azteca Underground. They plan to film all of the matches at once and do vignettes during the summer. The idea is to make Azteca Underground look like Lucha Underground. They will film with Luis Fernandez-Gil (Cesar Duran) today in Los Angeles.
