Dr. Wagner Jr. def. Mascarita Sagrada
I had completely forgotten about Famous B turning on Sagrada and aligning with Wagner until it was acknowledged at the start of the show. It was just a forgettable angle, and although Wager is a wrestling legend in Mexico, he has hardly been established as anyone special in Lucha Underground. We've seen Sagrada hold his own in matches before, but this was just an absolute squash and it was over in a mere matter of minutes. I'm actually surprised they blew off the storyline so quickly, but it's not like it was all that engaging to begin with.
Mil Muertes def. Argenis
I really hope there will be a renewed focus on Muertes this season. He started off Season 2 as a total monster heel, but beyond Aztec Warfare, he was an afterthought for the remainder of the season. That said, I like him reigniting his rivalry with Prince Puma as I feel they still have unfinished business from the first Ultima Lucha. As for this match, it was a standard squash match similar to its predecessor.
Killshot def. Marty "The Moth" Martinez in a Weapons of Mass Destruction Match
No, the match didn't feature guns, knives or anything that could truly kill a person, but it was pretty brutal and bloody. They made excellent use of the extreme environment and it was virtually a TLC match but much more hardcore. I appreciated how they got all the commercial breaks out of the way early so they could be given an ample amount of time to have an awesome match. I wasn't digging the feud early on, but this was a sweet blow-off that I wish would have happened at Ultima Lucha Dos.
As you could probably tell, this show was very light on in-ring action, and most of the episode was dedicated to pre-taped vignettes and furthering stories with Joey Ryan, Mr. Cisco, Dario Cueto and others. The first two matches were largely inconsequential, but the main event is well worth going out of your way to see for everything it had to offer.
