Sexy Star won the Lucha Underground title, pinning Mil Muertes in the finals of Aztec Warfare III.
Only one match this week. Aztec Warfare III.
As the program begins, Dario Cueto is en route to his brother's cell to bring the champion, Matanza, out for the biggest title defense of his career to date.
Unfortunately, greedy Johnny Mundo, already carrying the stolen Gift of the Gods title, stands in the way. Taya is back, carrying a video camera, as Johnny supposedly is filming a documentary. Yeah, sure, like any narcissist would, right? Mundo drew #12, but Dario, upset with Mundo's rude attitude toward the boss, moves him up to #2, swapping places with----wait for it---Sexy Star. Ohhh, this will cost Johnny dearly, but this is the last we'll see of Taya for the night.
Aztec Warfare III: The field (in no particular order): Matanza Cueto, Johnny Mundo, PJ Black, Son of Havoc, Famous B, Jack Evans, Rey Mysterio, Jr., Mil Muertes, Sexy Star, Marty & Mariposa Martinez, Jeremiah Crane, Dr. Wagner, Jr., Pentagon Dark, Drago, Kobra Moon, The Mack, Ricky Mandel, Mascarita Sagrada, & Joey Ryan.
Notes: You almost had to root for Matanza to put Mundo out of his misery ASAP, so we wouldn't have to put up with the Worldwide Underground's antics the rest of the night. Unfortunately, it didn't happen. Sagrada, Famous B, & Mandel were squashed like bugs. Mandel is likely the injury replacement for Ivelisse, and was returning under his own name after working last season as Trece of the Disciples of Death. Matt Striker & Vampiro hinted at that in commentary. Pentagon was about to break Mandel's arm a 2nd time when Black Lotus and her all-girl triad showed up, and Pentagon ate a, well, Asian Destroyer. Mundo & Evans picked up the scraps and eliminated Pentagon & Mandel within seconds of each other. Muertes & Matanza similarly matched pins, eliminating Wagner and Drago at the same time.
The big surprise was that Matanza didn't make it to the end. Remember, Muertes entered this match as the champion last year, and was eliminated early. The same fate befell Matanza as Rey Mysterio hit his version of the Destroyer. Matanza went crazy and wiped out Rey, leading to Mundo collecting a cheap pin. Unfortunately for the greedy one, who gets the winner next week, it was Sexy Star, from whom he stole the GotG belt, who pinned him after Angelico returned and wiped out Mundo.
That left Sexy all alone with Muertes after Mack was taken down with a nasty DDT. Muertes ended up eating wood twice, after introducing the tables into the match. Sexy ended it with a Warrior's Way double-foot stomp off the top to become the first female Lucha Underground champion.
Winner: Sexy Star.
Unfortunately, Sexy has Johnny in her immediate future. This had better not be a repeat of what we saw two weeks ago.
