We start with a drama filled video recapping the history of the past few weeks that have led to the current feuds and the newly crowned champion and the attack by Cage last week.
My View: The Editing and work with this video was awesome it was like watching the opening of NCIS or one of televisions great dramas.
We are welcomed into the Temple by Matt striker with Vampiro. They recap what Cage did to Prince Puma, Konnan and the belt last week. Already in the ring is Ivelisse and Son of Havok. Ivelisse grabs the microphone she tells the crowd to shut up. She says she is tired of reading tweets that say Son of Havoc sucks, and she does not date losers. She says she is the baddest Bitch in the building. Melissa Santos then introduces his opponent Angelico. Striker calls Son of Havok the SD Jones of Lucha Underground.

Angelico tries to roll up Havoc but Havoc reverses it and kicks Havoc into Ivelisse. Angelico rolls Havoc up for the pin and gets the win.
My View: It seems the #1 purpose of this match may have been to start a break up between Ivelisse and Son of Havoc. The match quality overall was great. Son of Havoc is extremely talented and could be better utilized.
We go to Dario Cuetos office where is talking to someone in the chair. He says I know we have had some issues in the past but since you have been gone we both have had some time to cool off. He suggests they let bygones be bygones. We see its Johnny Mundo in the chair who says for once Cueto is right about something and he is ready for some action. Cueto says tonight he will be in the main event against Cage. Mundo calls Cage a ham bone and tells Cueto he will need a new title belt, as we go to a break.
My View: This seemingly had the purpose of letting the fans know Mundo is still in the title picture.
Back from the break Melissa Santos introduces Famous B who is already in the ring. His opponent is Pentagon Jr. as he comes out next. A video is shown hyping Pentagon Jr.
Famous B vs. Pentagon Jr.
They start with a huge kick to the head of Famous B by Pentagon Jr. who then hits a huge chop. After some back and forth Famous B hits a springboard arm drag. Pentagon Jr. then hits a huge kick. Pentagon Jr. hits a small package pile driver, he then puts on a arm bar submission move and Famous B submits.
Winner: Pentagon Jr.
After the match the referee tries to pull Pentagon Jr. off Famous B but he leans back with all his weight and simulates snapping the arm of famous B. Pentagon Jr. grabs the microphone and says he is loyal to his master, and that he is ready as we go to another break.
My View: The match painted Pentagon Jr. as the first true Luchadore to be a challenger for the belt.
Back from the break Dario Cueto is talking to someone on the phone, he is saying that someone is coming for revenge.
Back in the ring Melissa Santos introduces Drago who is already in the ring. She then introduces Aerostar.

After the match Drago shows respect by picking Aerostar up and shaking his hand. We see Mundo and Cage walking to the ring as we go to a break.
My View: This match was another excellent match from the high flyers. Aerostar looked like he was legit hurt as he took the full blockbuster DDT on his neck.
Back from the break we see Fenix in the back. He is approached by Catrina who ask him why he has his tattoo on his chest. She wants to know does it protect him from having nightmares. She asks what can scare a man that cannot die. She then says she has a message for him and kisses him, and says he better keep that between them.
My View: Apparently this is the start of a larger feud between Mil Muertes and Fenix as this adds a unique dimension to it.

After the match he poses with the ripped championship belt and leaves the ring. We are taken back into Cuetos office where there is a knock on the door, Cueto yells go away were closed. Then you here a voice say no you’re not. The door opens and Alberto El Patron walks in and introduces himself, and says but you already knew that as we go off the air.
My View: The match was awesome both men looked great. The interference from Cuerno has added another feud to the mix.
Overall Show: The show was great overall with good matches. If the purpose of this show was to create excitement for the future it did just that. With two new feuds starting and Alberto El Patron showing up Lucha Underground just got better. Thank you for following along see you next time in the Temple.
