Lucha Underground Producer Says Their Show Takes Place In A Different Universe Than Impact Or MLW

Lucha Underground Producer Chris DeJoseph recently spoke to Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio for an interview, which you can check out at this link. You can also see the interview above, and highlights below:

Celebrities who he knows are closet Lucha fans:
"Matt Eisman from Ninja Warrior, he comes to the Temple. Vanilla Ice came to the Temple! He just sat in the seats, I was like, "Holy Cow, Vanilla Ice is here?" He didn't ask for any special treatment. He just came to watch Lucha Underground! Some of the LA Lakers are fans. Some of the guys in Metallica! It is nuts how many people have watched Lucha Underground and are into it! Oh, David Arquette! He sat in our crowd!"

The unexpected hiatus in Season 3:
"Oh Gosh, I did not know that was going to happen when we originally wrote it. IT is what it is. We're partners in making this thing happen. It was a decision from the (El Rey) Network. They had some other programming about to come out. I think it made sense for them. Would I have liked it to have aired all 40 episodes in a row? Sure! It worked out OK. I think we picked the perfect spot to take the mid-season break. And, to be honest, I don't think we lost anybody."

Lucha stars appearing for Impact, MLW, and other TV wrestling shows:
"The way we've always looked at Lucha Underground is Lucha Underground is its own universe, its own world. I think Impact and WWE takes place in the real world and not Lucha Underground world. We still mention some of the things that are happening in the real world but I think Lucha Underground takes place in its own universe."
