Atomicos 

– The opening video mainly focused on the quarrel between Rey Mysterio Jr/Dragon Azteca Jr./Chavo Guerrero Jr., The Worldwide Underground, when Joey Ryan “sold out” Officer Reyes to Dario Cueto and progression of Prince Puma-Mil Muertes feud that began when Vampiro pep-talked Puma to take out the big man.

Ultima Lucha Dos Part II

– We were in week two of Ultima Lucha Dos‘ three-week spectacle, as the opening video showed us that here we’d see Night Claw’s impending debut and a Death match between Mil Muertes and King Cuerno, which was demanded by Catrina after Cuerno cheated his way to pin Muertes upon their last bout.

Strange Bedfellows 

– After Cage’s unsuccessful attempt to uncrown Lucha Underground Champion Matanza Cueto via a “cash-in” of the Gift Of The Gods Championship, it was apparently decided that the GOTG needed to come back into play again for an episode’s purpose. Okay, that’s fine, but giving away all seven in one hour could be exhausting. That’s what we were in for, as evidenced in the opening video. Also highlighted were Mascarita Sagrada’s slump since under the managerial wing of Famous B/Brenda as well as the El Dragon Azteca Jr.-Black Lotus storyline, as Dario Cueto played both of them like a fiddle.

A Not-So-Nice Gift Of The Gods

– It’s that part of the Lucha Underground season where we get development in different areas. This particular episode focused on the Gift Of The Gods concept – somewhat of a WWE ripoff, but done more logically. Seven people fight for separate medallions that all magnetically connect into a belt to give it its “power,” a shot at the Lucha Underground Championship whenever the winner chooses so. The opening video highlighted the medallion holders – Sexy Star, Aerostar, The Mack, Joey Ryan, Texano, Sinestro De La Muerte and Cage, though he had his medallion stolen by Chavo Guerrero. Also brought up were the early seeds of a long-term feud between LUG Champion Matanza Cueto and Pentagon Jr., as we saw highlights of when the man of “cero miedo” was manhandled by the beast.

No Mas!

– We had much Ancient Aztec Medallion progression, with every match within the hour being contested for one. The opening video hyped this, along with the seeming payoff to the ongoing storyline between Sexy Star, The Mack, Marty “The Moth” Martinez and Mariposa. For those of you catching up, Sexy Star was abducted by Marty to end last season. Though she escaped and formed a friendship with The Mack, she was forever scarred by the torture and mental advantage held over her by Marty’s sister, Mariposa. This was easily one of this current season’s best storylines. Everybody has come in to their own, especially Marty.
