The Lucha Lowdown (Season 4, Episode 15)

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

The action starts in the temple with Fenix facing Aerostar. We had to feel for Melissa Santos during her announcements, as we recall what occurred with Fenix last week. Last week’s episode was titled, “Pet Sematary,” and it was a fitting title, as Fenix became violent, dark, and flat out deranged in his literal return from the dead. Aerostar, his former Trios partner, felt Fenix’s aggression, as well as Melissa, and in this match is no different. The darker and more sinister Fenix made an impression on Aerostar, but Aerostar fights back with a spinning piledriver for a two count! Aerostar’s series of kicks fail to make an effect on Fenix, but a second spinning piledriver doesn’t! After the two count, Fenix placed Aerostar on the top rope corner, and later delivers a modified driver on his opponent, winning the match.

However, winning is not enough, as Fenix pummels his former friend. Melissa pleads with Fenix to get help, saying that this Fenix is not the man she knows and loves. We later see Fenix menacingly approach Fenix, only for El Dragon Azteca to appear just as he did the previous week. This time, Fenix brutally attacked Azteca outside the ring, and as Matt Striker stated, Azteca has a Gift of the Gods Championship defense coming up!

The title match is scheduled to be next, but Antonio Cueto emerges and states that Azteca is in no condition to compete, and even went as far as to declare the match a forfeit and hand the title to Marty the Moth. Azteca wasn’t having it, and despite his condition, he wanted to defend his title against Marty. Out came the challenger, and he wasted no time going after the champion. Much like his sister, Mariposa, Marty paid his way into this championship match, but this bout has seen Azteca fight off what happened and deliver against the intense challenger, picking up near falls on more than one occasion. However, Marty was too much for Azteca, and he managed to defeat Azteca and capture the Gift of the Gods Championship! This is Marty’s first title in Lucha Underground, and it’s a big one; he is holding a golden ticket to the Lucha Underground Championship! As for Azteca, however, his dream of challenging for the Lucha Underground Championship at Ultima Lucha Cuatro are now kaput.

We now see Paul London speaking with the White Rabbit, gleefully boasting about his role in sacrificing his cohorts. The White Rabbit is not impressed, but he has a proposition for London: bring him and El Bunny to the temple. London acquiesces. Wow!

The main event commences! Challengers King Cuerno and Mil Muertes enter the ring first, followed by their opponent, the defending Lucha Underground Champion, Pentagon Dark. This match was made after a #1 Contender’s match between Cuerno and Mil ended without a definitive winner, leading to Antonio Cueto making the three-way match. Pentagon was taken out from the start, but he managed to break up a pin attempt between the challengers. Remember: no champion’s advantage in these matches, the champion can lose the title without being pinned. However, that would not be a problem for Pentagon, as he managed to pin Cuerno after delivering the piledriver. We later see Marty the Moth enter and beat down Pentagon Dark; Marty is the new Gift of the Gods Champion and he has that golden ticket to turn it into a Lucha Underground Championship match, but he must give the champion one week’s notice.

However, Antonio came out and chastised the “one week notice” rule and decided to abolish it, stating that it can be cashed in at any time! Marty does so, and he is now in a Lucha Underground Championship contest! So Gift of the Gods is now literally like Money in the Bank: it can be cashed in when the champion is at his or her (remember, Sexy Star held the title) most vulnerable! Pentagon managed to fight back against Marty, but in a strange moment, Chelsea Green appeared and delivered an attack to Pentagon, and the assault led to Marty capturing the Lucha Underground Championship! The former Laurel Van Ness places Marty’s new prize around his waist, and what a night for Marty. Remember: Marty ended Season 3 on the receiving end of immense embarrassment! Tonight, he entered with nothing, and came out like a bandit!

That’s the Lucha Lowdown! Until next week!
