PJ Black: The Lucha Underground Temple Was The Most Electrifying Crowd Ever

PJ Black is a well-traveled veteran who has wrestled for WWE, IMPACT, ROH, and more. 

Black also spent time in Lucha Underground, where he won the Trios Championships alongside Jack Evans & Johnny Mundo (John Morrison). Speaking to Andrew Thompson of POST Wrestling, Black reflected on his time in The Temple.

"It was very different and that is what’s cool about it, because it wasn’t so much a wrestling show, it was a TV show about wrestling, and that’s what made it different. The vignettes, the backstage stuff was very cinematic, very movie like. That’s what made it fun and I’ve been to a few WrestleManias but I promise you, The Temple, that was the most electrifying crowd I’ve ever worked in front of and if I can ever choose to ever go back anywhere, it’ll be there man but it was super fun. I wish it lasted a little bit longer but, it was a great chapter in my life for sure," he said.

Black is now signed to ROH, having signed a new multi-year deal in January. At recent events, Black has been teaming with Brian Johnson. In the same interview, Black discussed mentoring Johnson in ROH. 

"I’ve kind of taken a rookie under my wing — Brian Johnson [Future of Honor] and I’m mentoring him. Teaching him everything I’ve learned and that’s also a reason why I wanna open schools in South Africa because there’s a lot of young kids there who need just a little bit of guidance and I wanna teach them what I’ve learned so they can also make a living in professional wrestling, but in the same breath, I still feel good, my body feels good, I feel young. I feel like I’m very creative. I got some new stuff in the works too so, I’m gonna keep doing this until my body gives out but I definitely wanna give back in the future to the younger generation," he said.

Black is currently scheduled to team with Johnson at ROH Bound By Honor on Feb. 28 in a fatal four-way tag team match. Fightful will have full results from the event following its conclusion.
