OMG! Luchafans, there’s so much going on for this week’s episode! First, we’ve got Joey Ryan returning to the ring and likely confronting The Crew and Chavo Guerrero – who he’s supposed to take down, along with former Temple Proprietor Dario Cueto! The deadly Texano Jr. is also returning to the ring tonight, and let’s hope we see the time and space-traveling Aero Star! PLUS – Pentagon Junior and Prince Puma continue their feud to the ring as tonight’s ultimate main event! Also – what will happen to Fenix now that he defeated the current Gift of the Gods Champion King Cuerno in a Last Luchador Standing match that was supposed to prevent him from ever flying again? Who the hell knows – we find out tonight!
Plus – will Dario Cueto return to the Temple with The Crew? Will the dark Black Lotus be with him? Is there really a second Temple in the making? And what about the other wrestlers we haven’t seen a while – such as The Unlikely Trio of Ivelisse, Angelico, and Son of Havoc, plus Sexy Star and Marty “The Moth” Martinez? Return here tonight at 8 P.M. EST for full live coverage and play-by-plays of tonight’s all-new episode! In the meantime, you can check out last week’s live coverage and its accompanying complete, detailed recap!
Tonight’s Twitter buzz!!
Last week, Lucha Underground was a trending hashtag and topic. Let’s make that happen again tonight!
It’s 8, Believers!!!
We get a recap of the Season 2 Premiere, when The Unlikely Trio of Ivelisse, her boyfriend Son of Havoc, and Angelico fought each other for the Number 1 Contender to Mil Muertes’s LU Championship Match! Ivelisse lost that night, and recall that Pentagon Jr. and Prince Puma intervened.
Back to the present. We’re in Catrina’s office. Ivelisse wants to talk. She’d be champ if it weren’t for the Disciples. Catrina thinks Ivelisse got lucky with the mercy her and Mil gave her. Ivelisse gives a proposal. Catrina says no – apparently there are no automatic rematch clauses. Ivelisse wants the Trios Titles back in the hands of the Unlikely Trio. Catrina gives the Lick of Death to the knife – and the camera. Phew.
We’re in the Temple ring. “This is not church, but it is the Temple!” Vampiro’s a little less crazy tonight.
Whistles for Melissa! Here comes The Unlikely Trio for the opening match – a Lucha Underground Trios Championship Match! They are fan favorites. Intense chants and stomping for Angelico!
OMG HERE COMES THE CREW. And Chavo Guerrero Jr.! Whew. Matt Striker says Cisco is the most dangerous. Boos from the crowd. Mil watches from his throne. Any of these six could challenge Mil for the title. Suddenly, the crowd chants for Guerrero.

He pushes her. He goes for a suplex – she reverses! Back elbow. Kicks away clothesline. She kicks his back. She goes for the pin! Kick out by Cortez at 1. Cortez punches Ivelisse.

Johnny Mundo Promo
Johnny Mundo’s got some facts to share. Oh yes. We get a video package of him. He hasn’t been treated like the star he is. He was the opening match of last season’s Ultima Lucha, which he sees as a disgrace – but he still stole the show. Can someone make a Johnny Mundo standee for me, please? He wants to be the LU Champion. We get a recap of his encounter in episode two with Brian Cage, who also wants the championship. Mundo will make Cage obsolete – because it’s his world, and everyone else is just living in it.
Want to look like Johnny Mundo? Check out the tips below!
