The Lucha Lowdown

Welcome to the latest edition of The Lucha Lowdown, which recaps the latest episode of Lucha Underground!

Lucha Underground ChampionshipIt was all about Six to Survive on Lucha Underground, as Ivelisse, Johnny Mundo, Taya, Fenix, Pentagon Jr., and King Cuerno all competed in an elimination match for a shot at Matanza Cueto and the Lucha Underground Championship. How did these six end up competing for a title shot? Ironically, they were all partners in a six on six match last week, and it was their victory in that match that put them in the position. Pentagon Jr invaded the match when he beat down Chavo Guerrero, so he entered this past Wednesday’s episode in a prime position.

The first elimination came when Mil Muertes suddenly emerged, with raging red eyes, and went after King Cuerno. As we all remember, Cuerno actually had the “deceased” body of Mil Muertes as one of his prizes after Matanza defeated him, but Catrina revived the Man of 1000 Deaths, and he went right after Cuerno! After the melee, Cuerno ended up being the first one eliminated from Six to Survive, leaving five remaining. I myself absolutely enjoyed seeing Taya and Ivelisse go at it. Now that I think about it, I see them facing each other at Ultima Lucha. As for Six to Survive, though, the villainous Taya managed to get one on Ivelisse, when she eliminated the former Trios Champion, cutting the field to four.

The announcers kept teasing the possibility of Mundo and Taya fighting; I know I myself wanted to see this, but it would not come to be, as Pentagon Jr eliminated Taya, and right after that, Pentagon and Fenix actually worked together to oust Mundo, bringing it down to those two combatants; the stalwarts of LU. Pentagon Jr and Fenix went all out, and that’s an understatement, but in the end, the former was victorious. After his victory, Pentagon Jr let Matanza know that he would break every bone in his body.

So there we have it! Matanza vs Pentagon Jr, Part 2! I sense a different outcome this time! That’s the Lucha Lowdown! Until next week!
