Quick Hits: Lucha Underground 9.21.16
-Dragon Azteca Jr and Rey Mysterio are training. Chavo suddenly appears. Yay! Dragon Azteca calls him a liar and charges at him but Chavo puts him in a half crab.
-Dario is out there with his Dial of Doom. It lands on The Mack.
Lucha Underground Championship: Matanza (c) vs The Mack
-Matanza waits at the bottom of the stairs. But The Mack comes from the back and attacks Matanza.
-It looks like The Mack has gotten bigger since Season 2. And not in a muscular kind of way.
-Mack gets the offense in early. He goes for a Stunner but Matanza counters into a German suplex.
-Matanza dominates. But Mack ducks a charge sending Matanza to the outside. Mack then hits a senton over the top onto Matanza.
-Mack goes for a splash but Matanza gets his legs up. Matanza hits the Wrath of the Gods for the win.
WINNER and STILL Lucha Underground Champion: Matanza- Fine TV match. These need a payoff to them eventually. And I really wish they would change Matanza’s finisher. He’s capable of so much more than the Wrath of the Gods.
-Son of Havoc and Mascarita Segrada are in Havoc’s basement watching a Famous B commercial. Then Havoc’s mom comes in and says she made bagel bites. Score! That was weird.
-Johnny Mundo wants a Title shot. Dario says him and the Worldwide Underground will get a Trios Title match tonight. Mundo is pissed and turns it down. Taya offers to Dario to take his place.
Cage vs Texano
-Dario Cueto comes out and says this match isn’t for a unique opportunity, but the ULTIMATE opportunity. Dario says win and find out.
-They exchange offense early until Cage hits a senton of his own to the outside. And lands right on a standing Texano’s head.
-Cage applies a reverse Boston Crab but it looks like crap. Vampiro tries to say it is applying pressure to the back but it clearly isn’t.
-You know I like both of these guys, but they both look gassed after not even five minutes.
-We get some near falls. Cage hits a discus lariat for the win.
-Dario says Cage will find out what the Ultimate opportunity is, if Cage wins two more times because this will be a Best of 5 series.
WINNER: Cage- That was rough to get through. And we are going to get four more matches. But this was slow compared to LU standards. These two better pick it up in their next few matches.
-Dario gets some mail. There a “423-Get-Fame” hat. And some pictures that Dario throws out. Dragon Azteca Jr wants a match with Pentagon Dark which Dario grants. Ricky Mandel comes in and sees the pictures that magically appeared on Dario’s desk again. He thinks they are cool so Dario gives them to him. Chavo Guerrero comes in and tells Dario they have to talk.
Lucha Underground Trios Championship: Fenix, Drago, Aerostar (c) vs The Worldwide Underground (Jack Evans, PJ Black, Taya)
-Jack Evans and PJ Black are joking around to start the match. Taya has had enough and tags herself in.
-Drago and Taya exchange some chain wrestling early. It gets a little slow and sloppy at the end.
-I don’t know what is going on with this match. But it’s more about comedy than actual wrestling so far.
-Taya screams to try and stop Fenix from kicking her in the back of the head, but Fenix hits it anyways.
-Jack Evans finally gets some offense in and brings Drago to the corner. Black tags Evans in the back and Evans falls over selling it like he got taken down by Matanza.
-Black and Evans exchange tags until Evans goes to the floor and pouts.
-Drago accidentally kicks Fenix on the outside. Drago and Fenix then stand for what seems like forever until Taya gets to the top and dives to the outside onto them.
-Aerostar springboards off the top and hits a Codebreaker for the win.
-Mundo comes out afterwards and takes out the Champs with the help of Taya and Black. Sexy Star comes out to even the odds and Evans still pouts.
WINNERS and STILL Trios Champs: Drago, Aerostar and Fenix- Boy that was rough. If you want to tease tension between the heels, that was a bad way to do it. Plus, why do you have Mundo come out at the end? It was a comedy match over the Titles and I’m not a fan.
-Dario tells Rey Mysterio that Dragon Azteca Jr. won’t face Pentagon Dark next week. He will face Chavo Guerrero, and the winner will face Pentagon Dark. And Rey will be the special guest referee. Ok.
-Not a strong episode this week.
