Holy crap! Lucha Underground announced earlier today on social media that King Cuerno, the current LU Gift of the Gods Champion, will fight Fenix on the all-new episode of LU that airs tonight! No confirmation that the match will be for the Gift of the Gods title, but hey – wouldn’t it make sense that Fenix deserves a rematch clause? Or will Catrina prevent him from cashing in? We’ll find out tonight at 8 P.M. EST!
Also, Taya Valkyrie should be debuting pretty soon, as it was announced that she on the roster. Perhaps tonight’s the night?
Kobra Moon is also set to make her (hopefully) in-Temple debut tonight, and perhaps we should expect to see more of the current Sexy Star/Marty “The Moth” Martinez feud. “The Moth” claimed last week that his sister believes that Sexy Star is ready to “spread her wings,” which hopefully spells out “return to the Temple.” We also saw Rey Mysterio and Dragon Azteca at the end of last week’s episode, so we should prepare to see them as well, though with so much planned for tonight and so many unanswered questions after the incredible first two episodes, it might not be until the near future. It also makes sense to create more buildup for Mysterio, considering his vet status.
Also, don’t forget – Jack Evans and Drago also return tonight for their first, in-ring, Season 2 match!
Whew, this is gonna be good. Come back here later tonight for live coverage, and a detailed recap with analysis and predictions tomorrow!
