Johnny Mundo Tells Us The Name He Truly Wants to Go By:
If I had to pick one name. It would Johnny Blaze. Johnny Blaze is the first name I wanted to be at the very beginning of my wrestling career. I was Johnny Blaze for one episode of RAW before we got a cease and desist from Method Man and also from Marvel.
Johnny Mundo Talks About Boone The Bounty Hunter 2:
Boone 2, Bad to The Boone. If you can go with, Bad To the Boone being about a baboon. Choice one. Boone can't afford his crew and it's just Boone and a baboon. He calls his monkey Baboon and Boone and Baboon chase down the bad guys. But it gets really violent because baboons are pretty violent creatures. People don't realize…
So Boone and Baboon are chasing down bad guys. Baboon gets a little nuts, he is ripping people faces off. Or bad number two, the sequel to Boone is about Boone getting his crew together. And someone puts a bounty on Boone the Bounty hunter, himself and then rival packs of bounty hunters track down Boone and his crew has to come to help fight them and save him.
Taya Valkyrie Talks About Her Lucha Underground Wedding:
Johnny: if any one person had the most input on the wedding it was Taya. She was the main person in both weddings. The bride gets what the bride wants.
Taya: I had totally two different weddings. When the writers came to me with the idea. They really wanted my opinion. What do you, Taya in the Lucha Underground world and Johnny have as a wedding? And I was like, I just can't be in a white dress, I can’t just be all pretty and all this kind of stuff and I was like; I really see it as my Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. And I went online and found all these photos from these bridal parties from that reality show and sent them to our producers and writers and they were like what is this? I was like I swear please trust me. And they completely trust me on the vision of lime green.
Johnny: They thought she was joking when she said green. They were like what colour do you really want the dress.
