Lucha Underground Season 2, Episode 15 Review
-Catrina comes into Dario Cueto’s office. She wants a rematch for the Lucha Underground Title and says Dario is scared of Mil Muertes. He says he isn’t. And to prove that, he books a rematch for the Title next week: Mil vs Matanza in a Grave Consequences Match. YES!!! Dario raises the stakes though. He said there will be four coffins, making it GRAVER CONSEQUENCES!!!!
Aztec Medallion Match: Marty “The Moth” Martinez vs The Mack
-Marty takes his shirt off and throws it at Melissa Santos. Vampiro says she should get a tetanus shot. Maybe some other tests too.
-Mack hits a Stunner but the Moth doesn’t go down. Stone Cold would be pissed! Mack puts Marty on his shoulders then twirls him around and hits a Stunner for the win.
WINNER: The Mack– Nothing special here. These two are pretty much parody characters at this point.
-Catrina tells King Cuerno that he won’t win a medallion tonight, it’ll be Sinestro de la Muerte. Cuerno says when he wins a medallion, he won’t make the same mistake against Mil like he did before (by agreeing to not cash in against him).
-Dario Cueto tells Sexy Star that in order to get what Mariposa did to her out of her head, Sexy needs to beat it out of her. He books them in a “No Mas” match. Cueto tells her that even after Mariposa quits, Sexy needs to keep beating her down.
Aztec Medallion Match: King Cuerno vs Sinestro de la Muerte
-Hey look. it’s King Cuerno! I think it’s criminal how he has been booked in LU. He’s one of the best they have and he hasn’t been around in forever.
-The match ends quickly. Cuerno goes for the Arrow dive but Catrina hits him with her stone. Sinestro hits a springboard leg drop for the win.
WINNER: Sinestro de la Muerte- The match wasn’t even two minutes long. What the hell? I hope Cuerno finds his way out of this contract and ends up in the WWE. I don’t understand this at all. Why not at least have a competitive match?
-Chavo Guerrero (boooo) asks Dario Cueto why he isn’t in a medallion match. Dario says Chavo always fails, so he’s done giving him an opportunity. Chavo says he will seize the opportunity.
Aztec Medallion Match: Mascarita Segrada vs Cage
-Cage agreed to put his medallion on the line.
-Famous B introduces Mascarita as his latest client. He gives everybody his number and introduces Brenda in addition to Segrada.
-The crowd chants “Please Don’t Kill Him” as Cage gets the quick win. After the match, Chavo steals the Aztec Medallion from the ref. Chavo is literally the worst.
No Mas Match for an Aztec Medallion: Mariposa vs Sexy Star
-Vampiro talks about the fans being in a “stunned silence” wondering if Sexy can get this done. Or maybe the action is just slow so far, and they know no one quits in the first five minutes of any I Quit match.
-They go to the outside where Mariposa throws Sexy into the railing. She then throws multiple chairs at Sexy.
-Mariposa misses a dive so Sexy sets up a chair in Mariposa’s private area, then rams another chair into it. Ouch?
-Both women brawl up the stairs, then above the storage room, then all the way up to the rafters. Sexy starts to bleed as Mariposa runs Sexy’s head across the railing.
-They end up back above the storage room roof. Marty the Moth comes out and throws Sexy into the railing. But The Mack comes and takes care of Marty.
-Mariposa slams Sexy into the announce table, but Sexy grabs a garbage can and throws it at her.
-Mariposa applies a Key Lock submission in the ring. When asked if she gives up, Sexy replies FUCK YOU!
-Sexy applies a choke hold but Marty comes out again. But here comes the Mack again! Stunner to Marty!
-Sexy applies the cross armbreaker and Mariposa says No Mas. Sexy reapplies the armbar after the match. Mack then comes in to hand her the medallion.
WINNER: Sexy Star- Talk about completely passing my expectations. I wasn’t really into this whole storyline at all. But this match was about as definitive of an end to a story as you can have. And the match was very good. Sexy’s bleeding added to the match, as blood is something that is needed in all I Quit matches. The match picked up once they got down from the scaffold. Great intensity and the transformation of Sexy Star during the match was a good story.
OVERALL: I was ready to call this the worst show of the year for Lucha Underground, then the main event happened. But if you take away that the show overall was bad. The backstage Dario segments were good. But the matches beforehand were way too short. I’d prefer competitive matches for the Aztec medallion like we had with Drago/Aerostar, Cage/Mundo and Texano/Daga.
Next week is GRAVER CONSEQUENCES!
