Mil Muertes def. The Mack in a Haunted House Match
If you're wondering what the hell a Haunted House matchup is, it's basically a glorified Steel Cage match with weapons. In other words, it's essentially an Ambrose Asylum match, just not nearly as boring. This actually made me wish Halloween was sooner than it is. Nonetheless, this was an entertaining affair with Muertes and Mack making the most of the stipulation and keeping the crowd engaged. Mack put forth a good effort, but Muertes reigned supreme in the en as he should have.
Jake Strong def. Aerostar
Strong has quietly been building momentum since the start of the season by beating opponent after opponent and breaking their legs (only in Lucha Underground would you see something like that). This was a nice little matchup that was a bit more competitive and not as one-sided as Strong's past bouts, yet it still had the same outcome. I'm curious who Strong's ultimate match will be. Matanza Cueto, maybe?
Lucha Underground Champion Pentagon Dark def. Cage in a Last Man or Machine Standing Match
Last Man Standing matches can be tricky because of how boring the stipulation can get at times, but that was far from the case here as Pentagon and Cage took each other to their absolute limits and kept things exciting throughout. It was extremely entertaining, hard-hitting and chaotic and I loved the story they told with Pentagon attempting to not only beat but break Cage, which he did in the end. Cage looked very strong in defeat, but the title remains with Pentagon, who has had a hell of a run as champion thus far.
The two advertised matches for this week's show took up a majority of the hour and both bouts were a ton of fun. The main event in particular was excellent and well worth seeking out, but I really liked the Haunted House match and the Strong squash served a purpose. A few other storylines were progressed in between the matches through backstage segments/pre-taped vignettes, so this was a great edition of Lucha Underground on the whole.
