Lucha Underground 9/28/16 Review: Ooo… 619!

Published

Lucha Underground on September 28, 2016 was a good show that is building feuds and storylines for the future as well as building up new characters which is good. Let’s break it down:


We start off the show with a recap of what happened between Pentagon Dark, Dragon Azteca Jr., Rey Mysterio, Chavo Guerrero, Worldwide Underground, Dario Cueto, Super Friends, Sexy Star, Joey Ryan, Cortez Castro, Vampiro, Prince Puma, Mil Muertes, and Catrina earlier in the season of Lucha Underground Season 3. This is a good way to remind people about what happened during that time in case they missed it or forgot about it as this week, the people from the recap appeared on the show. Well done and well produced.

The backstage segment between Dario Cueto, Sexy Star, and Johnny Mundo was good. Dario Cueto met Sexy Star backstage as he told Sexy Star that she can either defend the Gift of the Gods Championship and lose it, or get destroyed by Matanza if she cash it in. He then told Sexy Star that later on the show, it will be her and Super Friends Vs. Worldwide Underground as he left.

Johnny Mundo then came in and told Sexy Star that he’s the next Gift of the Gods Champion as they both shook hands with brute force as they stared at each other.

It seems like we’ll be getting a future match between Sexy Star Vs. Johnny Mundo for the Gift of the Gods Championship which should be a great match when it happens. Also, looking forward to the eight mixed tag team match later on the show, should be fun to watch. Good backstage segment here.

Prince Puma Vs. Siniestro de le Muerte was a good match. With Prince Puma wanting his hands on Mil Muertes, it makes sense for him to go after his underling, Siniestro de la Muerte in this match.

Siniestro de la Muerte did get some offense in this match, but Prince Puma basically dominated this match as he showed a more aggressive side to him than before. Good performances by both men here.

The ending of the match came when Mil Muertes made his way to the ringside to try to distract Prince Puma, but Prince Puma hit a Michinoku Driver followed by a reverse STO on Siniestro de la Muerte for the pin and win. I like how Prince Puma ended up using Mil Muertes’ finisher to end the match there which shows that the two are feuding with at the moment which is nice to see. Good storytelling by Prince Puma there.

After the match, Prince Puma hit a suicide dive on Mil Muertes as the two brawled for a little bit until Catrina pulled Mil Muertes away.

It seems like the feud between Prince Puma and Mil Muertes is heating up here and I can’t wait for these two to face off when the time comes. Should be great.

Good match and good post-match as I’m looking forward to see what’s next in the Prince Puma Vs. Mil Muertes feud in Lucha Underground.

The backstage segment between Cortez Castro and Dario Cueto was good. Cortez Castro came into Dario Cueto’s office for a meeting as they shared an awkward hug with Dario Cueto saying that he feel sorry for Mr. Cisco and that he will find the person that murdered him. Dario Cueto then told Cortez Castro that he’s happy to have him and that the show must go on as he has a match next and he wants him to do it for Mr. Cisco.

It’s great to see that Dario Cueto actually cares for Cortez Castro here even though he knows the truth about him. However, Dario Cueto is an evil man so I expect that Dario Cueto has something evil planned for Cortez Castro which we will talk about next. Good backstage segment here.

Cortez Castro Vs. Pentagon Dark was a good squash match. After Dario Cueto telling that Cortez Castro have a match, it led to this and man, I was right, Dario Cueto is an evil man.

Even though Cortez Castro did get a little bit of offense in this match, Pentagon Dark completely destroyed him as he finished Cortez Castro off with the package piledriver for the pin and win. Poor Cortez Castro, this is what you get for not joining Dario Cueto’s side and it gets even worse for him after the match.

After the match, Pentagon Dark broke Cortez Castro’s arm and said that whoever wins the main event, he doesn’t care because he doesn’t even respect his mother.

Yep. Poor Cortez Castro. I guess we won’t be seeing him for a while in Lucha Underground. Get well soon Cortez Castro. As for Pentagon Dark, he’s more ready than ever and whoever wins the main event, they have to deal with a dangerous man because he has Cero Miedo!

Good match and good post-match as I’m looking forward to the main event of this show to see who will face Pentagon Dark down the road in Lucha Underground.

Super Friends & Sexy Star Vs. Worldwide Underground was a fun and excellent eight mixed tag team match. Mark out moment! After the tension between all of these eight individuals, it made sense for this match to finally happened and it was very fun to watch.

Worldwide Underground was excellent here as everyone in Worldwide Underground got to showcase their skills in the ring. Jack Evans was extremely entertaining in this match as he got to show off his aerobatics which was fun to see. Also, it seems like Jack Evans is back on track with Worldwide Underground which is good to see. Super Friends and Sexy Star did excellent in this match as well as they also got to showcase their skills in the ring. I’m loving the slingshot double knee facebreaker that Aerostar does, looks very cool. Very fun match where everyone got their spots in. Excellent performances by everyone here.

The ending of the match came when Johnny Mundo hit a superkick on Sexy Star which led to Jack Evans rolling her up from behind to get the pin and win for his team. I find it interesting that Jack Evans was the one who got the pin on Sexy Star and not Johnny Mundo since Johnny Mundo wants to go after the Gift of the Gods Championship. However, a match between Sexy Star and Jack Evans for the Gift of the Gods Championship should be a fun match if it happens. Also, I hope Taya was okay after this match because she had a nasty landing near the end of the match when Sexy Star threw her out of the ring. Other than that, everyone did well in this match and I applaud them for it so well done.

Excellent trios match and I’m interested to see what’s next for Super Friends, Sexy Star, and Worldwide Underground in Lucha Underground.

The video segment with Mil Muertes, Catrina, and Siniestro de la Muerte was good. Mil Muertes meditated as Catrina told Siniestro de la Muerte that he had failed them for the last time as she broke Siniestro de la Muerte’s neck and sucked his soul and gave it to Mil Muertes. She then told Mil Muertes to do the same to Prince Puma.

Rest in peace Siniestro de la Muerte. Also, Catrina is more deadly than ever if she can break people’s necks and steals souls. I suggest people stay away from her even though she’s a fine looking woman. Prince Puma, I suggest you run for your life because I have a feeling that Mil Muertes is going to kill you the next time he sees you. I’m interested to see what happens next in this feud between Prince Puma and Mil Muertes, should be good. Good video segment here.

Dragon Azteca Jr. Vs. Chavo Guerrero with Rey Mysterio as the special guest referee was a good match. After what happened backstage last week with Dario Cueto and Rey Mysterio, it all led to this match where the winner will face Pentagon Dark.

Chavo Guerrero did well in this match trying to make Dragon Azteca Jr. look strong while making himself look strong. Dragon Azteca Jr. did well in this match as well as he showed his wrestling style in the ring. Good performances by both men here.

The ending of the match came when Chavo Guerrero and Rey Mysterio argued with each other which led to Chavo Guerrero pushing Rey Mysterio down. As a result, this led to Rey Mysterio punching Chavo Guerrero in the face as Dragon Azteca Jr. hit a hurricanrana pin on Chavo Guerrero for the pin and win. Man, Rey Mysterio was doing well as a referee until he got into Chavo Guerrero’s business by punching him which led to Dragon Azteca Jr. winning the match. Try to be more professional Rey Mysterio and don’t get involve in the match. Either way, good win for Dragon Azteca Jr.

After the match, Chavo Guerrero tried to attack Rey Mysterio, but Rey Mysterio ended up hitting Chavo Guerrero with the 619 as he celebrated with Dragon Azteca Jr. in the ring. So Dragon Azteca Jr. will face Pentagon Dark down the road and I wish him the best of luck because Pentagon Dark is a dangerous man and he might break Dragon Azteca Jr. when they face off, but we’ll see. Should be a great match when those two face off. Looking forward to it.

Good match and I can’t wait to see Dragn Azteca Jr. Vs. Pentagon Dark in Lucha Underground down the road.

The video segment with Black Lotus was good. Black Lotus was lighting candles as she said that she will get revenge on Pentagon Dark as she brought ninjas with her.

Oh man, Black Lotus is serious now and she wants to take out Pentagon Dark for what he did to her at Ultima Lucha Dos. She even brought ninjas with her, awesome! Should be interesting to see how it will turn out once we see Black Lotus back in the Temple. Looking forward to it. Good video segment to end the show.

Overall, good show that helps build up storylines and feuds in the future as well as building up new characters. So many storylines and feuds here and I love it! If you haven’t already, please check out Lucha Underground. It’s a great alternative to the mainstream wrestling and you won’t be disappointed. Looking forward to next week’s show. Lucha! Lucha! Lucha! Lucha!
