Lucha Underground 10/3/18 Review: Sibling Rivalry Boils

Published

on

Lucha Underground on October 3, 2018, was a great show that helps build up Ultima Lucha Cuatro in four weeks. Let’s break it down:


We start off the show with a recap of what happened on Season 4 of Lucha Underground with Killshot, Son of Havoc, Ivelisse, XO Lishus, Joey Ryan, Rabbit Tribe, Aerostar, Fenix, and Melissa Santos. This is good as it shows what happened in Lucha Underground in case people missed it or forgot about it so that’s good. Well produced video package here.

The segment between Aerostar and Melissa Santos on the roof of the temple was good. Aerostar was on top of the roof of the temple until Melissa Santos came in and asked Aerostar on what happened with Fenix as Aerostar told Melissa Santos that he shouldn’t have done for what he did to Fenix, but couldn’t help it as it was his best friend despite what Catrina has done to him. Melissa Santos then asked Aerostar on what Catrina did to Fenix as Aerostar said when Catrina took the life force from Fenix, it infected him and changed him to something evil.

Melissa Santos then told Aerostar that he can save Fenix, but Aerostar told Melissa Santos that he can’t be saved as he’s gone. Melissa Santos then asked Aerostar why as Aerostar said he has seen the end and everything.

Things are about to go down and it looks like at this point, the old Fenix is no more and the new Fenix has emerged. It seems like now that Fenix may have to be killed to save him, but only time will tell. Good segment here.

Ivelisse, XO Lishus & Joey Ryan Vs. Rabbit Tribe was a good trios match. El Bunny and White Rabbit have made their Lucha Underground in-ring return and debut! Mark out moment for both! Glad to see them in action as the new Rabbit Tribe are the real deal.

Ivelisse, XO Lishus & Joey Ryan did well in this match as they tried to get revenge on Rabbit Tribe for what they did to them. The German suplex from Ivelisse on Paul London, while Paul London was holding El Bunny, was impressive. Rabbit Tribe did well in this match as they tried to show the new version of Rabbit Tribe. The Bronco Buster from El Bunny on XO Lishus was well executed. The Saito suplex from White Rabbit on Joey Ryan looked devastating. Good work by both teams here.

The ending of the match came when White Rabbit grabbed a white glove from his trunks and locked in Joey Ryan with a mandible claw to make Joey Ryan pass out for the win. A good win for Rabbit Tribe as they show how dangerous they can be as White Rabbit even got some blood from Joey Ryan from the mandible claw so this is a team that shouldn’t be messed with.

Good trios match and I’m interested to see where Rabbit Tribe go from here.

We then get an announcement from Matt Striker and Vampiro that in four weeks, it will be Ultima Lucha Cuatro where it will be The Mack Vs. Mil Muertes in a death match, Dragon Azteca Jr. Vs. Fenix in a 2 Out of 3 Falls match, and Marty “The Moth” Martinez Vs. Pentagon Dark for the Lucha Underground Championship. Looks to be a great card for Ultima Lucha Cuatro so far and I can’t wait to see more.

Son of Havoc Vs. Killshot was a great match. After months of tension between Son of Havoc and Killshot, they finally went up against one another and it was great.

Killshot did great in this match as he tried to get revenge on Son of Havoc for taking off his mask.

The ending of the match came when Son of Havoc reversed Killshot’s Oklahoma roll into a cradle pin for the win. A good win for Son of Havoc as he managed to get a bit of revenge on Killshot.

After the match, Killshot hit Son of Havoc with a running knee strike and hit him with the dog tags multiple times before taking off the mask of Son of Havoc as Son of Havoc covered his face.

Antonio Cueto then came out and told Killshot that him taking off the mask of Son of Havoc has a lot of meaning as his mask means as much as his because it represents their identity. He then announced at Ultima Lucha Cuatro, it will be Son of Havoc Vs. Killshot in a Mask Vs. Mask match.

Another match has been made official at Ultima Lucha Cuatro as stakes are high for both Son of Havoc and Killshot as one of them will be losing their identity. We’ll find out who that person will be at Ultima Lucha Cuatro.

Great match and great post-match as I’m looking forward to Son of Havoc Vs. Killshot in a Mask Vs. Mask match at Ultima Lucha Cuatro.

The in-ring promo segment from Marty “The Moth” Martinez and Rekulsa were good. Marty “The Moth” Martinez talked about how he is the Lucha Underground Champion and how he became Lucha Underground Champion because of Rekulsa as Rekulsa was responsible for what happened with Sexy Star for the past year. He said that Sexy Star embarrassed his family and as a result, he had Rekulsa stalked her to her home as she beat Sexy Star up so much that the only thing left of her was her mask as he holds the mask of Sexy Star and said that Sexy Star won’t be coming back to Lucha Underground.

Marty “The Moth” Martinez then said that there was one more person that embarrassed him more than Sexy Star and it was Pentagon Dark as he was the one who broke his arm and now he has something that he has which is the Lucha Underground Championship. He then said that he hasn’t forgotten Mariposa as she was the one that helped Marty “The Moth” Martinez to focus and he owes her for that and as a result, he will defend the Lucha Underground Championship against Mariposa right now as he wants to play with her like they did when they were kids as Mariposa came out and the match began.

Well now, we know what happened to Sexy Star and it’s all thanks to Rekulsa who is Chelsea Green. Marty “The Moth” Martinez is looking to have fun with Mariposa so we’ll see how that goes.

Good in-ring promo segment and let’s talk about the Lucha Underground Championship match!

Marty “The Moth” Martinez Vs. Mariposa in a No Disqualification match for the Lucha Underground Championship was excellent. Mark out moment! This match was made from Marty “The Moth” Martinez after his promo segment and it was excellent.

Mariposa did excellent in this match as she tried to become Lucha Underground Champion. The superkick on Marty “The Moth” Martinez with a chair looked like it killed Marty “The Moth” Martinez. The way she was beating up Marty “The Moth” Martinez with a chair in a pile of chairs has to hurt a lot. The missile dropkick on Marty “The Moth” Martinez was well executed. The Samoan Drop on Marty “The Moth” Martinez on top of the chair looked like it broke Marty “The Moth” Martinez’s back. Excellent work by Mariposa here.

Marty “The Moth” Martinez did excellent in this match as well as he tried to retain the Lucha Underground Championship. The swing on Mariposa to the announce table looked like it killed Mariposa there. The powerbomb on Mariposa on the floor looked painful as heck. Excellent work by Marty “The Moth” Martinez here.

The ending of the match came when Mariposa was about to hit the Butterfly Effect (Back-to-back double underhook piledriver) on Marty “The Moth” Martinez, but Rekulsa hit a big boot on Mariposa as Marty “The Moth” Martinez hit a package piledriver on Mariposa for the pin and to retain the Lucha Underground Championship. A great win for Marty “The Moth” Martinez as he showed that he’s a dangerous man as Lucha Underground Champion.

After the match, Marty “The Moth” Martinez grabbed a mic and said to Mariposa that she was the one that gave Marty “The Moth” Martinez focus and he thanked her for that. He then said at Ultima Lucha Cuatro, he will defend the Lucha Underground Championship against Pentagon Dark and wants to do it in a Cero Miedo match. He then said that he’ll dedicate his match to Mariposa and what he’s going to do to Mariposa is what he is dedicating to Pentagon Dark as he broke the arm of Mariposa.

Pentagon Dark then came in the ring with a chair as Marty “The Moth” Martinez was about to fight Pentagon Dark, but ran away. Pentagon Dark then told Marty “The Moth” Martinez that he accepted the match for Ultima Lucha Cuatro and he promised to break the bones of Marty “The Moth” Martinez because he’s Pentagon Dark and he has Cero Miedo.

Well, our main event just became a lot more interesting as it will be Marty “The Moth” Martinez Vs. Pentagon Dark in a Cero Miedo match at Ultima Lucha Cuatro. Sounds like an awesome match for me and I can’t wait to see it.

Excellent No Disqualification match and I can’t wait for Marty “The Moth” Martinez Vs. Pentagon Dark in a Cero Miedo match at Ultima Lucha Cuatro.

Overall, a great show that helps build up Ultima Lucha Cuatro in four weeks. So many storylines and feuds here and I love it! Next week, we’re going to have the fallout of this show and the road to Ultima Lucha Cuatro continues which should be great, looking forward to that. If you haven’t already, please check out Lucha Underground. It’s a great alternative to mainstream wrestling and you won’t be disappointed. Looking forward to next week’s show. Lucha! Lucha! Lucha! Lucha!
