Winner: Son of Havoc
After the match Havoc blows Ivelisse a kiss good bye. Ivelisse then kicks Angelico in the head taking him out as we go to a break.
My View: Finally we get some pay off in this storyline. Son of Havoc is one of the most talented men on the roster and the fans wanted to cheer not jeer him. I could not understand him losing week after week. I will admit though this story played out great on TV with Havoc finally getting the much deserved win.
Back from the break we go to Dario Cuetos office. He is talking to someone and says that they are now officially part f his roster. He says he is anxious to see what the wrestler can do in his ring. He says here he won’t be held back with some tag team and Konnan speaks very highly of him. He says he hopes he doesn’t disappoint, we finally see the wrestler and its Hernandez. Cueto says he has a front row seat because he is his honored guest.
My View: Well this should certainly be an interesting signing we will wait and see how it plays out.
Melissa Santos introduces Texano as he makes his way to the ring. Alberto makes his way to the ring next with the championship. Striker and Vampiro hype both wrestlers as the referee attaches the bull rope to both wrestlers and we go to a break.

Albert locks in the arm bar submission over the top rope and Texano taps out for the win.
Winner: Alberto El Patron
We go to another break.
My View: This was a good match for what it was. I would love to see what these two wrestlers could do with more time. Texano is amazing in the ring and Alberto is known for his hard work. This feud is far from over and I can’t wait to see more from the two. I thought possibly they would put this match on last I am glad they didn’t though. Although overall the AAA belt may hold more prestige it cannot be more important than the Lucha Underground championship in Lucha Underground.

My View: I could have done without the interference but it was a great match. It allows Prince Puma to move on to new things and sets up a feud between Cage and Hernandez.
Overall Show: another great show from Lucha Underground. This is the first time I have watched these types of moves since the tragic accident and death of Perro Aguayo. You can’t help but realize every move could end their career or life and they are doing it to entertain us. I truly appreciate what these men and woman do. Thanks for joining me and see you next time in the temple.
