Quick Hits: Lucha Underground 10.5.16

Lucha Underground Header

-We start with Dario’s Dial of Doom! It lands on Prince Puma. So that’s the main event tonight. Smart not doing it right away.

Ivelisse vs Mariposa

-Ivelisse is sporting some new red hair. Hopefully she doesn’t get hurt before the match starts!

-Marty is at ringside with his sister. He grabs Ivelisse’s leg which allows Mariposa to gain control.

-This match is pretty much kick punch kick punch punch.

-Mariposa goes for an awkward submission move. But Ivelisse escapes and hits a Code Red for the win.

-After the match Marty takes out Ivelisse with his sister. I guess Son of Havoc is still in his basement with Mascarita Segrada.

WINNER: Ivelisse- Slow and not much action to it.

-Johnny Mundo complains to Dario again about not getting a Title match. Dario says it just isn’t meant to be. Mundo then asks for a Gift of the Gods Title match. Dario points out that Sexy Star was in a war last week and was pinned by Jack Evans, so he gives Evans the Gift of the Gods Title match for next week.

-A promo airs saying “Follow the White Rabbit.” I’m pretty sure this is for Paul London.

Best of 5: Texano vs Cage

-They go to the outside early where Texano tosses Cage into the railings, announce table and ringposts.

-Cage gets control back in the ring with a tilt-a-whirl DDT and a rolling to the ropes moonsault.

-The crowd chants “This is Awesome.” This is the most annoying chant in wrestling today. This match is actually okay.

-Cage hits a suplex from the apron into the ring, then the F5, I mean “Luchador Destoyer” for the win.

WINNER: Cage to go up 2-0. This is typical wrestling. Texano will probably win the next two. Another okay match.

-Ivelisse’s new boyfriend (Sami Callahan of NXT fame) meets her in the locker room. She says he is late. He asks if someone beat her up and says no one beats up his girl. Ivelisse wants to keep her relationship and wrestling separate and gets annoyed with him, whose name is Jeremiah.

Lucha Underground Championship: Matanza (c) vs Prince Puma

-Puma starts with a punch to Matanza. Matanza comes back with a clothesline sending Puma flipping.

-They brawl on the outside with both men gaining the upper hand at various points. Matanza eventually catches Puma and tosses him into the metal railing.

-Matanza continues dominating inside the ring. He thwarts a Puma comeback with a hard shoulder tackle.

-Puma ducks out of the way of a Matanza charge and starts a comeback.

-Puma misses a kick so Matanza hits a German suplex. It looked like Puma landed somewhat on his neck.

-Puma catches Matanza in the corner then hits a belly-to-belly suplex. He rolls through and picks up Matanza to deliver another suplex. Cool spot.

-Matanza blocks another kick from Puma and hits a T-bone suplex and sitout powerbomb for two.

-Puma counters the Wrath of the Gods into a DDT. Puma finally lands some kicks and hits the 630 splash. But Mil Muertes comes out and spears Puma before he can make the pin. Dario stops the ref from calling for a DQ. Mil hits the Flatliner.

-Matanza comes to and hits the Wrath of the Gods for the win.

WINNER and STILL Lucha Underground Champion: Matanza- Good match. The ending continues to build the Mil/Puma story so I’m okay with it.

-Joey Ryan gives Killshot an envelope given to him by someone outside. Killshot pulls out a note that says “You Left Me For Dead.”

-The main event was good but everything else was forgettable.

Until Next Time,
