Cricket Wireless announced Friday that they will be sponsoring the first Lucha Underground house show tour with events scheduled for October 23rd in Phoenix, AZ, October 30th in Houston, TX, and November 5th in San Diego, CA.

The current issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter discussed the tour and some of my thoughts on it.

To me, it's kind of crazy to announce the Phoenix show at this late of a date. Additionally, no venues nor lineups have been announced for the shows.

As of today, the only thing we know is that Rey Mysterio Jr. and Prince Puma (Ricochet) were being pushed as the top stars in the original plans, but Puma will be in Japan for all three dates. Coincidentally, Mysterio is booked for Japan next week as well but that's just on October 26th, so he should be able to work the LU dates.

We're told different talents will be at different shows as opposed to having the same card done all three nights.
