Rise Or Die Trying
– As Lucha Underground’s second season continues nods on, so do the semi-enticing storylines. They haven’t been as polished as last year’s, but with Dario Cueto back, we’re as close to “throwback” as possible. It might as well be Thursday. Hardy har har. Anyways, the opening video reminded us of Sexy Star’s affected state thanks to Marty “The Moth” Martinez and Mariposa, as well as Joey Ryan/Ricky Reyes working together as underground police officers in an attempt to take down Dario, while his brother Matanza has tightly gripped the Lucha Underground Championship, downing any challengers to this point.
El Jefe Is Back
– As the above words will declare, this was sort of a “homecoming” for LUG, reverting to what made Season one memorable – live bands, an intriguing heel authority figure and surprise announcements. This was all attributed to one “El Jefe,” aka Dario Cueto. Yup, he’s back in his Temple. The opening video chronicled this, as well as reminding us of the Sexy Star/Mack/Marty “The Moth” Martinez/Mariposa feud, Ivelisse/Son Of Havoc/Angelico getting their Trios Championship back and how Matanza Cueto single-handedly eliminated seven individuals from Aztec Warfare to become the new Lucha Underground Champion.
