Quick Hits: Lucha Underground 1.4.17
-Catrina tells Mil that if he wants to get to Puma, he has to go through Vampiro. She then uses her teleportation powers to get to the Temple. Jeremiah Crane says he beat the man she loves last week. Catrina turns to Crane and says Mil isn’t the man she loves. Ooooohhhhh.
Sexy Star vs Mariposa
-Sexy starts with some ground and pound. She follows it up with a hurricarrana to the outside and a dive through the ropes.
-They brawl on the outside. Mariposa grabs Sexy and slams her into the announce table a few times.
-Mariposa applies a modified Indian death lock and also kicks Sexy while having the hold applied. Sexy gets to the ropes.
-Both women are on the top. Sexy shoves Mariposa off the top and Sexy hits a double stomp for the win.
-After the match, Marty comes out to help his sister. But he ends up chokeslamming her instead.
WINNER: Sexy Star
-Mascarita Segrada is approached backstage by the White Rabbit Tribe. They think he is the white rabbit and want Mascarita at ringside. He tells them they are crazy.
The White Rabbit Tribe vs Kobra Moon, Pindar and Vibora
-Kobra Moon comes out with Drago on a chain, then makes him wrestle the match.
-I still can’t decide if I want to call Vibora Viborataker or Vibora Corbin.
-I’ve settled on Viborataker. He comes in and double chokeslams London’s pals.
-Paul London gets beat down until he tags in Mala Suerte and Saltador.
-London tries fighting back but Viborataker catches him and hits a Tombstone.
-Saltador is still the legal man. Dragon comes in and hits a neckbreaker for the win.
-After the match, Fenix and Aerostar make the save. Drago is saved.
WINNERS: Drago, Pindar and Viborataker
-Dario Cueto tells The Mack that this week’s match isn’t a Title match. The winner gets to pick the stipulation for their Title match. I’m assuming that’s next week during the mid-season finale.
Johnny Mundo vs The Mack
-Mundo gets control early with a poke to the eye.
-Mundo tries to get Mack to chase him on the outside by flipping him off. It works, but Mack hits Mundo with a t-bone suplex.
-Now Mundo climbs under the ring. He ducks a kick and Mundo tosses Mack into the railing.
-Back in the ring Mack starts a comeback and hits a People’s Elbow.
-Mack hits a Samoan drop then pops up and hits a standing moonsault for two.
-REF BUMP! Mack hits a sitout powerbomb but the ref is too slow to get over. Mack only gets two.
-PJ Black and Jack Evans come out to distract the ref. Mundo hits a low blow then a roll-up for the win.
WINNER: Johnny Mundo
-Mundo calls Mack a fat piece of crap, then says they will have an all night long match (LU’s version of an Ironman).
-Mil Muertes and Catrina come down. Mil attacks Vampiro. Puma comes down. Vampiro tells him no, then Mil hits the Flatliner.
OVERALL: Another meh show, which has been the norm with Lucha Underground this year. And now they are having a mid-season finale with no matches advertised? They aren’t going to put Mundo/Mack on it. No sign of Matanza or Rey Mysterio. Do they go back to the well with Mil and Puma? It is just a weird situation for LU to be in. And as I said in my yearly predictions, I think something fishy is going on here. I’d be surprised if LU is still around by the end of the year.
Until Next Time,
