LOS BAÑOS--Tired of watching WWE? Try this unique brand of wrestling.

"Lucha Underground" will once again hit the Philippine shores with its second season starting on Feb. 20 on Kix.

A brainchild of Mark Burnett, the man behind the popular reality show Survivor and the hit game show franchise "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?", and Mexican wrestling outfit AAA, Lucha Underground showcases some of the best AAA wrestlers slugging it out with some from the independent circuits.

What makes Season 2 special, however, is the arrival of former WWE superstar Rey Mysterio.

Mysterio will join fellow WWE alumni Johnny Mondo, Chavo Guerrero, Matt Striker, and Catrina Perez in the roster.

The season will also see the rise to power of masked wrestler Matanza Cueto, who is Filipino-American in real life.

Lucha Underground airs every Monday at 9 p.m.
