Quick Hits: Lucha Underground 7.15.15 (w/Justin C)

lucha underground

-The show opens with Pentagon Jr. in Dario Cueto’s office. Cueto offers him a medallion, but Pentagon turns it down and he says he wants Vampiro. Pentagon will force Vampiro to accept his challenge tonight. Man, if Pentagon could speak English he would be AWESOME in the WWE.

Bengala vs Delavar Daivari (w/Big Ryck)

-The crowd chants “Golden Shower” at Daivari and it is the first time an inappropriate wrestling chant might be funny to me.

-Bengala takes out Big Ryck with a dive after interference.

-Big Ryck recovers, however. But the interference fails this time and Bengala picks up the win, earning one of the Aztec medallions.

Vampiro/Pentagon Jr. Segment

-Vampiro comes out and begins to talk about the similarities between him and Pentagon. Pentagon interrupts and calls him by his real name, Ian. Vampiro says he won’t be facing Ian at Ultima Lucha, he is going to be facing Vampiro, who then takes out Pentagon. Strong segment from both. Here’s hoping Vampiro brings back the face paint and finds a dreads wig.

King Cuerno vs Killshot

-Cuerno has kind of fallen off a bit recently. He was pushed strong in the beginning but has fallen to the background a bit.

-The first half of this match has been “who can make the loudest slapping noise” contest.

-King Cuerno wins with a bow and arrow submission to gain an Aztec medallion.

Sexy Star vs Super Fly

-Sexy Star wins in under a minute with an armbar.

-Marty the Moth comes out and says that particular medallion she won represents his tribe. He wants a match for it and she accepts.

-Sexy ends up winning again with an armbar. That leaves her, King Cuerno, Bengala, Aerostar, Jack Evans and Fenix with medallions. Whatever happens with these, Cuerno is my early favorite to win what I assume will be a match.

Prince Puma/Mil Muertes Showdown

-Like a WWE contract signing, the peace didn’t last long. Catrina and the Disciples of Death came out with a coffin. Konnan came out and took out the Disciples with his cane, which I wasn’t a fan of. I would have preferred seeing the Trios Champs out there. Mil takes out Konnan, Catrina hits him with the stone, and the Disciples roll him into the coffin as Mil forces Puma to watch, then hits the flatliner on Puma to end the show.

Until Next Time,
