Match-by-match results and television rating of this edition of Lucha Underground.
Show: Lucha Underground
Date: February 10, 2016
Location: Los Angeles, Ca
Commentary: Matt Striker & Vampiro
Reported By: Jacob Gilbert
1. Cobra Moon submitted Bengala.
2. Jack Evans def. Drago.
3. Non-title: Fenix def. King Cuerno.
Before we begin, I'd like to make you aware of a digital comic book spun off from Lucha Underground. All you have to do is type in "Lucha Underground comic book" in a search box, and you'll be directed to the appropriate site. It will explain how certain performers have been, ah, written out.
Fenix is in the office with Catrina. He tells her that he will get back the Gift of the Gods title, then come after her & Mil Muertes, not exactly in that order, of course.
1. Cobra Moon vs. Bengala.
All the other sites spell the hooded newcomer's name as "Kobra", like the comic book villain. Not on the air, and we'll go with what it says on camera. Good opener. Bengala tried, but this was a glorified squash, ending with Bengala tapping to the Cobra (Dragon) Sleeper.
Winner: Cobra Moon.
Thanks to the magic of videotape, it would seem like Catrina can teleport to wherever she needs to be at a given moment. Hence, she meets with King Cuerno, and sets up a Last Man Standing match vs. Fenix for later. In a subsequent bit, she taunts Prince Puma about the loss of Konnan.
2. Jack Evans vs. Drago.
Evans is already in the ring, and anywhere else, that would be a jobber entrance, but, as we've learned from WWE in recent years, that isn't always the case. Far more flying in this one than in the last match. Not as many near falls as you'd think. It ends when Evans counters the Dragon's Lair into a rollup and puts his foot on the rope at the last possible second. He then has the chutzpah to call himself the Dragon Slayer. There's an old expression about taunting a foe before he has truly fallen. A lesson that Evans will learn in due course.
Winner: Jack Evans.
Texano, Jr. video. The former AAA champ returns next week.
3. Non-title: King Cuerno vs. Fenix.
Catrina told Cuerno this was a non-title match to prevent Fenix from gaining any additional leverage if he were to win. In fact, this was even better than the last meeting between the two two weeks ago. Cuerno expended a lot of energy early trying to finish off Fenix, but couldn't close the deal. At the end, Fenix climbed up the ladder and onto the roof of an office (not Catrina's). Cuerno gave chase, with a table below. You can guess what happened next. Fenix pushed the ladder and Cuerno through the table. Ballgame.
Elsewhere in Los Angeles, a Captain Vasquez is meeting with Officer Reyes. That's Ricky Reyes, alias Cortez Castro, to you. Seems he's been working undercover the whole time, trying to get the goods on Dario Cueto. Now, he's getting a partner, who will be an opponent as part of Reyes' cover. Joey Ryan, formerly of TNA, makes his debut. Joey must be a fan of crime dramas. He's using Kojak's gimmick with the lollipop, and in Wrestling Society X nearly a decade ago, his nickname was "Magnum". Oh, this will be fun. We think.
