Matanza Cueto def. Mr. Cisco
The audience has known for a while that Cisco was an undercover cop, and I honestly forgot all about that coming into Season 4. That said, I'm glad that long-term storyline was blown off here with Antonio Cueto finally founding out and basically sacrificing him to "the gods" a.k.a. Matanza. This was short and sweet with Matanza winning within a matter of seconds. I would assume that this is the last we'll see of Cisco in Lucha Underground.
Ivelisse def. Joey Ryan to Win an Ancient Aztec Medallion
I don't usually mind the inter-gender matches in Lucha Underground as long as they feature the right people, and although Ivelisse has proven in the past that she can hang with most of the men on the roster, this was booked like comic relief and thus it wasn't as good as it could have been. However, Ivelisse winning was the right choice and thankfully this didn't overstay its welcome.
Trios Champion The Mack def. Trios Champion Killshot and Trios Champion Son of Havoc in a Three-Way Match to Win an Ancient Aztec Medallion
Per Antonio Cueto, since Killshot was pinned, only Mack and Haoc walked away with ancient Aztec medallions. Yeah, it was a little confusing when he announced it before the bout, but it did make the stakes even higher and thus I cared about the contest more. As you would probably expect from these three, they went all out and delivered a terrific three-way match. The action was exciting and the crowd being into everything they did helped as well. The post-match was interesting with Killshot teasing tension with his partners after getting beaten.
Mil Muertes def. Cage to Win an Ancient Aztec Medallion
Big man vs. big man matches tend to be hit or miss most of the time, but this was a ton of fun because they have awesome chemistry together. I wasn't fond of all the referees getting laid out early on, but it did lead to Pentagon Dark getting involved and exacting revenge on Cage from a few weeks ago by costing him the victory. Afterward, he cut an intense promo setting him himself vs. Cage for the Lucha Underground Championship next week.
This edition of Lucha Underground was heavily focused on the ancient Aztec medallions, so the Gift of the Gods Championship match must be coming up quickly. The first two matches weren't too noteworthy, but the three-way and the main event are well worth checking out. Now that we're about a month into the new season of Lucha Underground, several storylines feel locked into place. The show is always enjoyable either way, but it's great when there are compelling programs viewers can get invested in.
