King Cuerno def. Super Fly
Similar to how Cuerno stalked Drago during one of his matches a few episodes back, Drago returned the favor by watching from afar here. This marked Super Fly's debut (who I honestly forgot was even a part of the show until now), and although he had an impressive outing, this was all about Cuerno and allowing him to maintain momentum by picking up a victory. A third match between Drago and Cuerno is obviously looming.
Chavo Guerrero def. Fenix
Fenix has been a human highlight reel since arriving in Lucha Underground and all of his matches have raged from good to great. Chavo hasn't been my favorite performer in the promotion up this point, but he has been built up as one of the top heels on the show and I guess I should have expected him to go over so the heels could get the upper hand in the feud. This was an entertaining encounter despite not receiving much time.
Johnny Mundo def. Prince Puma and Big Ryck in a Three-Way Ladder Match to Win $100,000
Since there were no disqualifications, you had to know there would be tons of interference in this match, and sure enough, The Crenshaw Crew got involved almost immediately. There was also a mystery man who attempted to cost Mundo the win down the stretch as well (I guess he's supposed to be the third member of their group?). Although those elements somewhat took away from my enjoyment of the outing, this was a pretty fun main event on the whole with Mundo and Puma carrying the contest and offering some memorable moments.
I wish either Ryck wasn't involved in the main event or that there wasn't so much interference, because I believe the bout would have benefited from those few factors being eliminated. The crowd ate it up, though, so that helped. More than half the show was dedicated to that main event, so while the other two matches weren't given nearly as much time, they were well-wrestled and progressed those storylines nicely.
