JC’s Top Rope Report: Ultima Lucha Part 1 Review

lucha underground

-Dario Cueto is looking pimpin in a tux. He visits Black Lotus. He says Dragon Azteca, not his brother Matanza, is the one who killed her parents. She seems suspicious.

Falls Count Anywhere Match: Cage vs The Mack

-The match starts with Cage attacking The Mack during his entrance, then brawling in the stands. More matches need to start like that. Who needs entrances?

-These two aren’t wasting any time. They go through the door of a storage room and Cage sprays Mack with a fire extinguisher that also gets some of the crowd.

-Mack finds a cooler with beer. Does Dario Cueto let people drink on the job? BEST BOSS EVER.

-Mack slams two beers together then hits a STONE COLD STUNNER on Cage. This is great.

-Cage sets up a table, but Mack gets up while Cage is going to the top and hits a sit down powerbomb to the outside through the table.

-Both men brawl to the top of Dario Cueto’s office, where Cage eventually hits a Curb Stomp on Mack through a cinder block to pick up the win. That was a fun brawl.

Trios Championship: Son of Havoc, Angelico and Ivelisse (c) vs The Disciples of Death (w/Catrina)

-The match is tornado rules, so everyone is in the ring at the same time.

-The names of the Disciples are Barrio Negro, El Siniestro de la Muerte and Terce.

-The Disciples take out Angelico in the stands. But do you think he is going to stay there for long? Angelico jumps off Cueto’s office and hits a crossbody onto the Disciples on the outside. That may have been his most dangerous dive yet since he landed on the outside.

-Catrina gets the Disciples to rise with the stone. Ivelisse takes out Catrina and they go back down. But Catrina recovers and knocks out Ivelisse with the stone. The Disciples pin Ivelisse to pick up the win. Kind of a weak match.

Believers Backlash Match: Drago vs Hernandez

-This match has fans on the outside of the ring, and they have straps.

-The fans help Drago back up, but whip Hernandez when he goes to the outside.

-Hernandez takes control then tosses Drago onto the believers on the outside.

-Hernandez goes for a dive, but Drago sprays him with mist. Hernandez hides under the ring, but the believers are waiting for him with the straps.

-Drago ends up using nunchucks on Hernandez then dives off the top through a table. Drago then picks up the win with a dive on the inside of the ring. Good match.

-The show ends with Dragon Azteca on the outside of the Temple. Someone tries to stop him, telling him the prophecy says if he enters he dies. Dragon says he will always live on, so the man lets him enter.

Until Next Time,
