Famous B and Dr. Wagner Jr. def. Son of Havoc and Mascarita Sagrada
I like how Famous B's storyline with Sagrada has carried into Season 3, though I'm still questioning why Havoc is involved because he should be above this. Matt Striker laid it on pretty thick that Famous B had yet to win a match in the Temple, which virtually gave away out the outcome. Nevertheless, I will admit that Havoc and Sagrada were a fun team and this was enjoyable in the opening slot. By the way, do we still know anything more about Wagner other than he's an established veteran in Mexico?
Gift of the Gods Champion Sexy Star def. Jack Evans
Sexy Star is far from a bad wrestler, but her in-ring style is vastly different than Evans'. I almost feel Evans had to tone down his repitore a bit just to go at Star's slower pace. They contested a solid match, but Sexy isn't a compelling choice as Gift of the Gods Champion. They had to resort to interference from their respective allies to make the match more engaging, and I guess it worked to a degree. I'm curious as to whether Taya's injury was a work or not because she was nowhere to be seen here.
Pentagon Dark def. Rey Mysterio and Chavo Guerrero in a Triple Threat Match
I'm sorry, but Chavo Guerrero has never been interesting to me, but I suppose if anyone can make me care about him, it's Mysterio. Sure, they've feuded a thousand times before, but Chavo came out of this match looking like a legitimate badass, or at least afterward. The match itself was well-wrestled with good performances from all three competitors. I was happy to see Pentagon finally win a meaningful match, but I fear this victory was merely an afterthought with Chavo's attack on Rey being the bigger picture.
There wasn't anything overly exciting about this edition of Lucha Underground, but as always, it was a mildly entertaining hour of wrestling that flew by. There was simple storyline progression, an average main event and a memorable conclusion. In fact, the Lucha Underground Championship picture feels like the least important thing on the program at the moment, which should not be the case whatsoever. However, we do have Prince Puma vs. Mil Muertes to look forward to next week.
