Get ready, Believers! Welcome to the weekly live coverage for Lucha Underground! On tonight’s all-new episode, we’ll finally see current LU Champion Mil Muertes in his second title defense for the main event – a Triple Threat match with Pentagon Junior and Prince Puma! Also in store is another match between Johnny Mundo and “The Machine” Brian Cage, likely with an appearance by Mundo’s new ally and LU‘s newest luchadora, Taya Valkyrie, plus a singles match with The Mack versus Marty “The Moth” Martinez! Tonight looks exciting, with all of these continuations of these epic rivalries – prepare for the violence.
The buildup between Pentagon Jr., Prince Puma, and Mil Muertes began in the season premiere and has only been getting stronger, successfully reaching this point in which they fight for the title. This is excellent, considering Aztec Warfare II is in just two weeks – plus, two other luchadores are in line for the title, Mundo and Cage. And we can’t forget last week’s epic ladder match for the Gift of the Gods Championship that ended with Fenix as the new champion. But King Cuerno will be back for more, no doubt, especially since he has an alliance with Catrina to end Fenix.
Going back to Mil Muertes, his long partnership with Catrina obviously has been beneficial to him and his bloodthirsty desires – including his want to finish Pentagon Junior and Prince Puma. But Mil can’t possibly lose the title so quickly and so easily – so what’s in store for this match? Will the Disciples of Death intervene?
Plus, which storylines will we see more of tonight? It sounds like we’ll definitely be seeing more of the The Moth/The Mack/Sexy Star feud. It was interesting how Kobra Moon was in the match-up with Sexy Star, and it’s a little weird if the intent behind that was Kobra to just introduce the feud to the ring. We also haven’t seen The Unlikely Trio in a couple episodes, so perhaps it’s their time again to reappear tonight, since Creative has been evening-out the screentime for the storylines.
Check back here at 8 P.M. sharp for the live updates and play-by-plays! In the meantime, you can check out last week’s live coverage, and stay tuned for the accompanying recap for last week’s episode!

The real world doesn’t want Fenix. He sought out a different world, and they said he would never survive in Lucha Underground. He sought to prove them wrong, that he would become Champion. We get a video package of his moves from so far this season, including last week’s ladder match for the Gift of the Gods Championship. The LU Championship is next. Some fantasies are worth believing in.
