Quick Hits: Lucha Underground 9.13.17
-Apparently Ricky Mandel changed his name to Ricky Mundo. Should’ve changed it to Ricky Nitro. Ricky gets excited because Johnny tells him there is only one Mundo in Worldwide Underground, meaning he is officially in.
The Worldwide Underground vs Prince Puma, Cage, Fenix and Sexy Star
-Ricky Mandel is hurt, so Mundo picks Fenix’s Ultima Lucha opponent Marty “the Moth” Martinez as his replacement.

-The Worldwide Underground all take out Cage but he gets back up and takes them out one by one.
-Jeremiah Crane comes out and steals Cage’s gauntlet. That probably means he is going to give it to Catrina.
