Did WWE Steal From Lucha Underground?


The Buzzards Wrestling Podcast at SportsKeeda.com recently spoke to former WWE Superstar and current Lucha Underground star Johnny Mundo, formerly known as John Morrison and Johnny Nitro in WWE. When asked about whether he thinks Lucha Underground inspired recent storylines in WWE and Impact Wrestling such as “Total Nonstop Deletion” and the “House of Horrors”, Mundo gave the following response:

“Totally agree. I feel like Lucha Underground was the first promotion that’s really integrated the gritty, action movie feel with wrestling. Shooting the vignettes that stitch Lucha Underground together, with coverage like a TV show or movie has set that trend.

“You’re right. The Total Nonstop Deletion and WWE House of Horrors and even some of the costumes in WWE, I feel the trends were started in Lucha Underground.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
