Match-by-match results and television rating of this edition of Lucha Underground.
Show: Lucha Underground
Date: October 26, 2016
Location: Los Angeles, Ca
Commentary: Matt Striker & Vampiro
Reported By: Jacob Gilbert
1. Marty Martinez def. Ivelisse.
2. Texano def. Cage.
3. Gift of the Gods title: Johnny Mundo def. Sexy Star due to interference from Jack Evans & PJ Black and the use of brass knux to steal the title.
This week's episode most assuredly won't be sanctioned by the National Organization for Women (NOW). You'll see what I mean as we go along.
Sexy Star meets with Dario Cueto, confident that she will challenge Matanza next week, and sees Johnny Mundo as a warm-up match in defending the Gift of the Gods. As she leaves, however, Cueto muses that Matanza doesn't take too kindly to women, as their mother would attest........
1. Marty Martinez (w/Mariposa) vs. Ivelisse.
2 weeks back, Ivelisse beat Mariposa, only for Marty to ambush her after. Mariposa gets involved briefly, no bearing on the match outcome. I really wish they'd get to the point of Marty stalking Melissa Santos, though. Anyway, the size advantage favors Marty, who debuts a full nelson slam as his newest finisher.
Winner: Marty Martinez.
The bizarre siblings continue the attack post-match, but Jeremiah (Sami Callihan), Ivey's new squeeze, runs in through the crowd and wipes them both out with pump (Brogue) kicks. Ivey recovers and Marty & Mariposa vacate, setting up a likely tag team match.......
However, Ivey's not thrilled with Jeremiah showing up after she told him she didn't need help. Bold, brave, but not exactly smart. She drives off, and as she does, Cueto leaves the temple and enters a limo. He's given a huge crate that contains the spirit of a dark god who will possess either Texano or Cage. Uh-oh.
2. Texano vs. Cage.
Match 3 in the best-of-5. These two have no idea what Dario has planned for the victor. Cages uses the same moves that won him the first two matches (discus lariat, F-5), but this time Texano kicks out. Texano wins with a mere cradle.
Halloween is Monday, but for these two, the bad moon will rise before Thanksgiving, methinks.
Rey Mysterio is in the office, and it seems it's on. A loser leave town match vs. Chavo Guerrero, Jr......
3.Gift of the Gods title: Sexy Star vs. Johnny Mundo.
Cueto has stacked the deck against Sexy, after taking a bribe from Mundo last week. The trios champs (Drago, Aerostar, Fenix) are barred from ringside. However, Jack Evans & PJ Black aren't, and predictably get involved. That brings The Mack, back after more than a month away. However, the numbers are too much even for him. Three ref bumps, a set of brass knux, and we have, unfortunately, a new GOTG champ.
Winner: Johnny Mundo.
Johnny took the coward's way to the title, but what can he do against Matanza?
In a pre-recorded segment, Vampiro pays another visit to Prince Puma. While he detested Konnan, he's respected Puma from the go. Hmmmm.
