Lucha Underground’s Season 3 Episode 9, was one to remember with a great main event and a mouth-watering clash set for the next event.
The show opened up with a video highlights package that focused on the current storylines with emphasis on Dario’s murder from season 2, and Rey Mysterio’s current feud with Chavo Guerrero.
Matt Striker and Vampiro opened the show in the temple. They hyped the “Loser leaves Lucha” match between, Rey Mysterio and Chavo Guerrero Jr. Chavo Guerrero Sr was shown in attendance, and as Striker continued to promote the show, Dario Cueto cut him off. He told Striker that he had spoken enough and it is his time to speak.
Dario stood next to his “Dial of Doom” and said that in 2 weeks, his brother Matanza would defend the Lucha Underground Championship in the Aztec Warfare match. Dario proceeded to spin his ‘Dial Of Doom”, and it landed on Dario’s choice.
Dario hyped about his choice, said that he had been waiting for this shot and it is none other than Cortez Castro!
Here is a glimpse of Chavo Guerrero Sr. and Dario spinning the “Dial Of Doom.”
LUCHA UNDERGROUND CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
“The Monster” Matanza Cueto vs. Cortez Castro
Cortez came into the ring with his entire right hand bandaged up, courtesy of Pentagon Dark and with a kendo stick in his left. Matanza straight away went after the injured arm by stomping it repeatedly. Matanza soon hit the Wrath Of Gods on Castro and that was enough for the 3 count.
Matanza Cueto defeats Cortez Castro via pinfall to retain the Lucha Underground Championship.
After the match, Cueto made his way to the ring and mocked Castro as we moved on to the next match. Cueto was further seen in his office, along with Joey Ryan, who joked about the beating that Castro received. Joey soon left the office, and Son Of Havoc entered with Mascarita Sagrada.
Son Of Havoc requested for a match between Sagrada and Famous B. After a lot of hesitation, Cueto came up with a solution and agreed to book the match with the stipulation of his choice, if Son Of Havoc could beat Dr. Wagner tonight.
Back in the Temple, Prince Puma took to the ring and challenged Mil Muertes to a “Grave Consequences” match. Catrina arrived on the scene, and said, “we gladly accept”. Meanwhile, Mil Muertes snuck in from behind and tried to attack Prince Puma, but Puma got the advantage and dropkicked Muertes over the top rope.
He teased diving over the top rope, but doubled back and posed in the ring instead to close the segment.
