The Lucha Lowdown

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

princepumaThe show started with Sexy Star being taunted by Dario Cueto, regarding her status as Gift of the Gods Champion. Sexy won the title at the end of last season, and as we all know, the Gift of the Gods Championship can be turned into a shot at the Lucha Underground Championship, which is currently held by Dario’s brother, Matanza. As if that wasn’t enough, Johnny Mundo formally introduced himself as the next Gift of the Gods Champion, which infuriated Sexy Star.

On to the temple and our first bit of action, which saw Prince Puma defeat Sinestro de la Muerte, while Mil Muertes and Catrina were at ringside. This was Puma’s first bit of action of this season, and after his victory, he dove towards Mil Muertes. I’m still waiting for this match to happen. Quite honestly, it has all of the hype of an Ultima Lucha match, but that’s too far down the line. Meanwhile, Cortez Castro appeared in Cueto’s office, where Cueto promised to “find out who really killed Cisco.” Stating that the show must go on, Cueto put Castro in a match against an opponent to be announced, later revealed as the ominous Pentagon Dark. Oh boy!pentagon-jr

Needless to say, Pentagon Dark soundly defeated Castro, and then proclaimed that it doesn’t matter if it’s Chavo Guerrero or Dragon Azteca Jr that he ends up facing, the outcome will be the same.

Next up is an Atomicos Match, pitting all of Worldwide Underground against Sexy Star, Fenix, Aerostar, and Drago. Both women started and received loud cheers from the crowd, but the cheers turned into concern for Taya, as she appeared to injure her left leg and was writhing in pain. Jack Evans pinned Sexy Star for the victory, and the trio helped Taya to the back.

Mil Muertes and Catrina were backstage with Sinestro de la Muerte, who expressed his apologies for his failure. However, that was not enough for Catrina, who killed Sinestro and sent his soul to Mil Muertes, while stating that she wants him to do the same thing to Prince Puma.

luchavoThe main event is the anticipated match between Chavo Guerrero and Dragon Azteca Jr, with Rey Mysterio as the guest referee. The winner gets a chance at revenge on Pentagon Dark, but I couldn’t help but mark out at seeing Chavo and Rey in the same ring, as this is a rivalry that dates back to their WWE days, and maybe before that. As the match showed, the bad blood is still present between the two, as Chavo shoved Rey during one point of the match. This prompted Rey to retaliate, which allowed Azteca to get the victory. After the match, Rey delivered a 619 to Chavo. Chavo and Rey need to face off! I’m willing to wait for Ultima Lucha Tres, just as long as this happens!luninjas

The show ends with our first look at Black Lotus this season. She is shown telling someone that she has destroyed the man that killed them. As Lotus is lighting candles, She says that her work at the temple is not done. That she is summoning the Black Lotus Triad to go after Pentagon Dark. That they will show Pentagon what fear really looks like. Black Lotus stands up and behind her are black hooded men in ninja like attire. They stand by her side as she stands proud and determined.

That is the Lucha Lowdown! Until next week!
