Ok so I finally caught up the last 2 weeks of LU. All I can say is "HOLY Crap!"

The process of the Cueto Cup has been a great storyline this season. The matches themselves have been outstanding. Jeremiah Krane has a lot of potential and I like his demeanor. There is something about his crazy character that is beyond anything I've seen before. He's not a Dean Ambrose or a Bray Wyatt. He's something more. Having Fox distract Killshot but not having Killshot distract him back was a great swerve. I really thought they'd play it out. But something tells me it's coming down the road.

I'm looking forward to the Johnny Mundo vs. Rey Mysterio match. The build up to it has been excellent, and last week's show having the goons show up to give Rey a beat down just makes it more interesting. As much as I dislike the way they've played Mundo as a guy who can't win on his own, I hope he keeps the title. I'd rather he lose the title to The Machine or Prince Puma.

Son of Havoc vs. Son of Madness is a great lead in to a side story. Vampiro did a great job of explaining the biker gang mentality, the patches, and the vest.

LU is starting to set the standard for my expectations of wrestling shows.

With all the talent WWE has, they can't seem to create any new stars. Yet look how awesome LU makes guys like Mack, Crane, and Killshot look without even putting much focus on them. LU could turn any of those guys, or many others, into stars in just a few weeks.

And when was the last time WWE created a really good storyline? Look at the biker revenge storyline LU created with just one promo and one match.

I think what separates LU from other companies is that everything we see and hear contributes to the storylines. We don't get filler matches, pointless backstage segments, constant replays, and meaningless banter and product plugs from the announcers. Everything that is done or said goes toward furthering a storyline. I can't believe that other companies haven't learned from LU.

This week's matches were a little off (IMO). However, LU may have gone overboard with the Marty The Moth match. I understanding the beat down he gave, but taking the fork to the forehead? Holy crap. The fans were stunned at post match actions. Then he licked the fork!

But regardless of the one match, the athletes on the roster still out perform most of WWE and IW combined.
