    Johnny Impact? Man, this guy changes his wrestling names more than he changes his ring jackets. Could he not keep calling himself Johnny Mundo?

    That’s what I thought but apparently the episodes of Lucha Underground airing right now were taped last year. According to Wikipedia, Johnny Mundo lost the title to Prince Puma in June 2016 who then lost the title to Pentagon Dark (the real current champ)who has held the title since then. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Lucha_Underground_Champions

    Boy, and we thought TNA was bad for taping episodes months ahead of time. The episodes of LU we’re seeing right now are over a year old.
