Three matches have been announced so far, and two of them are doozies. The ostensible main event is being billed as a lucha dream match as Mysterio will do battle against Myzteziz (fka Sin Cara Original Flavor, fka Mistico). While the latter's WWE career underwhelmed many fans, he is far more at home and enjoyable to watch in his home country. Mysterio is an old, savvy vet, so I expect big things out of this match. The other match of note announced is a lucha de apuesta, where both Brian Cage and el Patron will wager their hair. Cage's run in Mexico has seen him take up the mantel of "Lucha Destroyer," an insatiably bloodlusty wrecking ball taking out anyone and everyone who holds dear to lucha libre tradition. el Patron will put his hair on the line to defend his home country against the bruising interloper. Also on the card will be a trios match between the Psycho Circus and everyone's favorite numbered band of luchadores, Los Villanos (III, IV, and V to be exact).
Lucha Underground has whet the American appetite for the art of lucha, even though it still has more than a few Americanized elements to it. Triplemania should be, as the kids call it, the straight dope for those who want a real taste of Mexican wrestling. For those who want to watch on a reliable stream through a cable provider rather than through iPPV, they now have that option. It's great news for everyone involved.
