Lucha Underground on November 23, 2016 was a great 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 Dario Cueto, Matanza, Killshot, Dante Fox, Black Lotus, Pentagon Dark, Rey Mysterio, Johnny Mundo, Angelico, and Sexy Star 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.
A vignette of the Rabbit Tribe was shown as they are here in the temple. It will be interesting to see how Rabbit Tribe will do in Lucha Underground, but seeing Paul London on TV again makes me happy. Anyway, let’s get on to our first match!
Super Friends Vs. Rabbit Tribe for the Lucha Underground Trios Championships was a good trios match. Rabbit Tribe have made their Lucha Underground in-ring debuts! Mark out moment for all three members! The members of the Rabbit Tribe consisted of Paul London, Mala Suerte, and Saltador. Paul London as we all know is known for his work in WWE back in the 2000s, Mala Suerte is Mr. Cisco under a mask, and Saltador is Siniestro de la Muerte under a mask so it’s great to see all of these guys back on TV again.
Rabbit Tribe did fine in this match as they got to show their characters in the ring as they began to circle around Melissa Santos before the match starts and circle around Fenix when he was down. The dives that the Rabbit Tribe did were cool to watch. Super Friends did well in this match also as they got to showcase their skills in the ring as usual. The chemistry between these three is absolutely amazing. Good performances by both trios here.
The ending of the match came when Fenix rolled up Saltador for the pin and win. A nice showcase from Rabbit Tribe here even though they lost. Super Friends continue to dominate in the Trios division in Lucha Underground. I wonder who will face them next for the Lucha Underground Trios Championships, I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
After the match, Kobra Moon was seen up in the bleachers as she called out Drago that sooner or later, he will bow down to the queen. It seems like Super Friends will have their next challengers coming up as I’m guessing Kobra Moon will find two partners to take on Super Friends for the Lucha Underground Trios Championships. I wonder who she is going to bring, but I guess we’ll find out eventually.
Good trios match and good post-match segment as I’m interested to see what’s next in this feud between Drago and Kobra Moon in Lucha Underground.
The backstage segment between Sexy Star and The Mack was good. We see Sexy Star backstage in the locker room as she’s getting ready for her match against Johnny Mundo later on the show as The Mack came in and jokes around with Sexy Star as he’s proud of Sexy Star for winning the Lucha Underground Championship. The Mack told Sexy Star that he wants to have her back, but Sexy Star refused as she wants to prove that she can be a real champion.
I admire Sexy Star for trying to fight Johnny Mundo alone, but I don’t think Johnny Mundo will be alone in his match against Sexy Star later on the show. However, I think it will be another good match between the two later on the show. Looking forward to it. Good backstage segment here.
Killshot Vs. Dante Fox was an excellent match. Mark out moment! These two have a lot of chemistry with each other back in CZW as they are known as Shane Strickland and AR Fox during their time in the company. They delivered an excellent match where it was back and forth between the two where neither man looked weak in the process.
Killshot was excellent in this match as he tried to get Dante Fox to understand him while trying to fight him as well. The Avalanche Death Valley Driver that Killshot did on Dante Fox on the ring apron was freaking amazing! Mark out moment! I was surprised that Dante Fox still fought back after that because that spot looked like it hurt a lot. Props to Dante Fox for taking that spot and recovering from it. Dante Fox did excellent in this match as well as he proved that he belong in Lucha Underground. His suicide dives and standing shooting star press on Killshot to the outside was great to watch. Excellent performances by both men here.
The ending of the match came when Dante Fox hit the Fox Catcher (Straightjacket Fisherman Buster) on Killshot for the pin and win. This was a great win for Dante Fox as he looked excellent in this match. I have a feeling that this feud between Killshot and Dante Fox is far from over and I can’t wait to see what’s next in this feud because I have a feeling it’s going to be great. Looking forward to that when the time comes.
Excellent match and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next in this feud between Killshot and Dante Fox in Lucha Underground.
The backstage segment between Johnny Mundo and Dario Cueto was good. Johnny Mundo met with Dario Cueto in his office and told him that he will win the Lucha Underground Championship from Sexy Star. As Johnny Mundo was leaving, Dario Cueto called Johnny Mundo a prick behind his back.
Again, this is why I love Dario Cueto. He’s El Jefe and you will respect him Johnny Mundo! The interaction between these two are fun to watch and I’m looking forward to the main event later on the show. Should be fun to watch. Good backstage segment here.
The backstage segment between Dario Cueto and Black Lotus was good. Dario Cueto was going back to his office until he bumped into Black Lotus in his office. Dario Cueto told Black Lotus that he was impressed with Black Lotus Triad last week and that he wants them to face Pentagon Dark along with her next week in a gauntlet match. Black Lotus questioned about Dario Cueto’s decision and Dario Cueto told her that no matter whether they win or lose, they will all get Pentagon Dark as Black Lotus smiled and she agreed with the decision.
Dario Cueto once again playing his evil mind games on people, but it’s working. That’s why Dario Cueto is awesome because he’s El Jefe! The gauntlet match between Pentagon Dark and Black Lotus Triad next week should be fun. Looking forward to it. Good backstage segment here.
Sexy Star Vs. Johnny Mundo for the Lucha Underground Championship was a great match. With these two having a heated rivalry for the past few weeks, it made sense for them to face off once again and it was a great match between them.
Johnny Mundo did great in this match as he tried everything in his power to win the Lucha Underground Championship even if it means he has to cheat to get it. Sexy Star did great in this match too as she tried to overcome the odds and tried to retain her Lucha Underground Championship. Great performances by both competitors here.
The ending of the match came when Johnny Mundo took a crutch from a fan and tried to use it on Sexy Star, but Sexy Star took the crutch from Johnny Mundo as Johnny Mundo pleaded with the referee to stop Sexy Star from hitting him with it. This led to Johnny Mundo distracting the referee as Sexy Star tried to help the fan, but the fan knocked her out as Johnny Mundo took advantage and hit End of the World on Sexy Star for the pin and win as Johnny Mundo is the new Lucha Underground Champion! Mark out moment!
Johnny Mundo once again has screwed over Sexy Star in her moments of glory as he took the Gift of the Gods Championship from her and now the Lucha Underground Championship from her. Poor Sexy Star. She got screwed over twice and now I think she’s going to get revenge on Johnny Mundo sooner rather than later for all of this.
After the match, the fan revealed herself and it turned out to be Taya. Jack Evans and PJ Black then came into the ring as they celebrate with Johnny Mundo and Taya as Worldwide Underground stood tall in the end.
Worldwide Underground are going to be a force to be reckoned with in Lucha Underground and I think Johnny Mundo will be great as Lucha Underground Champion. I hope to see Worldwide Underground with the trios titles again down the road so they can have all of the gold. Can’t wait to see what happens next with Worldwide Underground as they are at the top of the mundo now.
Great match and congratulations to Johnny Mundo for the being the new Lucha Underground Champion!
Overall, great 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! Next week, we’re going to have Pentagon Dark Vs. Black Lotus Triad in a gauntlet match which should be great. Looking forward to that. 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!
