The Rabbit Tribe def. The Worldwide Underground for 3 Ancient Aztec Medallions
I never expect too much from any match involving The Rabbit Tribe because they're largely comic relief, but this was a fine little match while it lasted. It's a shame Jack Evans is out injured right now, but at least Ricky Mandel serving as his in-ring replacement means he can take the pinfall losses like he did here. I honestly wasn't expect The Worldwide Underground to lose, but I suppose this might be leading to a split of the stable sooner rather than later.
Mil Muertes def. Jeremiah Crane in Cueto Cup Quarterfinal No Disqualification Match
Muertes and Crane have had this story going on all season that has seen Crane reveal that he and Catrina were once lovers, so there was a ton of bad blood here and it resulted in an absolutely incredible match. The No Disqualification stipulation certainly helped and both guys put forth an excellent effort as the crowd ate up everything they did. Crane's strong showing in the Cueto Cup should prove that he is a way better wrestler than some gave him credit for after his underwhelming run in WWE NXT a few years ago.
Pentagon Dark def. Texano in a Cueto Cup Quarterfinal Match
Pentagon in action always gets me hyped, and I was hoping he'd be able to get a good match out of Texano. That isn't to say Texano is a terrible worker, but he tends to bore me to tears more often than not. This was on its way to being solid before the predictable interference from Famous B. I realize they had a story to tell with Famous B's interference backfiring and costing Texano the victory, but it was a total contrast to the previous match that was outstanding because it focused on the importance of the tournament. On the bright side, Pentagon breaking the arms of Famous B and Brenda afterward was awesome.
Needless to say, Crane vs. Muertes was easily the best bout of the night and the other two matches didn't come close, but it was an enjoyable episode on the whole, nevertheless. What I liked most about it, aside from Crane vs. Muertes, was the backstage segments and vignettes that Lucha Underground is known for, furthering a few storylines that haven't been addressed in a while. That combined with the upcoming conclusion to the Cueto Cup and the Lucha Underground Championship match between Rey Mysterio and Johnny Mundo have me excited for the remainder of Season 3.
