After a quick recap of the angles we might have forgotten we head to the Temple where once again Mariachi El Bronx are getting the crowd amped up. Matt Striker and Vampiro are with us to call the action. They talk about bullshit for a bit before throwing it to the ring for action.

Watching the entire run of Wrestling Society X episodes has left me with a strong desire to get back into Lucha Underground so that’s what we’re doing here today! Let’s return to the Temple to see what everyone’s favorite luchadors are up to!

Between some of the stylistic similarities, the shared rosters, and the fact that getting that money seems to be a central theme of both, all the Urban Wrestling Federation I’ve been watching as of late made me realize it’s been awhile since I’ve looked at Lucha Underground, so here’s another review of that show.

We open on a sunset-lit gymnasium. Cage, looking jacked as fuck, is doing curls when Dario Cueto opens. Cueto tells him, “I like a man who takes the bull by the horns, but, you my friend, you take the bull by the huevos,” and gives him a championship match against Prince Puma tonight.
Cage tells him that he will win the title tonight because he’s a machine. This week his declaration of being a machine is paired with a hard zoom on his eyes like something out of a 1970s kung fu movie. This owns so hard.
Time from Lucha Underground!

The episode of Lucha Underground I watched the other day kind of put me on a Lucha Underground kick so here’s another review of an episode from Season 1. Again we kick things off with a brief recap of what’s been going on in the Temple. This time the video package is focused on Big Ryck, Pentagon Jr., Drago and King Cuerno, so I’m guessing those are the dudes that are going to be featured in this episode.

It’s been awhile since I’ve watched any Lucha Underground so it’s time to rectify that. We start things off with a prestige drama-esque previously on Lucha Underground recap that shows us stuff that previously happened that will undoubtedly be important in understanding this particular installment. Since it’s been over a month since I last checked out an episode from this season of LU this recap thing is invaluable to me.

We begin things this week with people in traditional Aztec garb (I guess) dancing about the ring while drummers drum. Dario Cueto is in the middle of the ring with the new Lucha Underground Championship. He tells us that tonight we are going to crown the first Lucha Underground Champion in a match he came up with completely on his own: AZTEC WARFARE!

We’re at the Sugar Mill in New Orleans for this crossover event between Impact (née TNA) and Lucha Underground. Our hosts for the evening are Matt Striker and Josh Mathews. ECW ’09 commentary team all up in this mug!
Melissa Santos and some random blonde lady who is apparently Impact’s backstage interview lady come out to hype the crowd. Since this is on Twitch instead of basic cable Melissa Santos tells the crowd to make “some fucking noise,” or something like that before introducing the competitors for the first match.

We kick things off with a Previously on Lucha Underground reel showing us Black Lotus getting her arm broke by Pentagon Dark and then showing up with a gaggle of Japanese ladies to wreck shit on him. It’s time to Lucha!

Things kick off this week with a video package summarizing what went down last week with Chavo and Sexy Star as well as the ladder match between Johnny Mundo, Price Puma and Big Ryck. We get some credits and then it’s to the Temple for Lucha action!
