Tonight is the night, Believers! Fenix will turn in his Gift of the Gods Championship for the chance to become the next Lucha Underground Champion in tonight’s main event with current LU Champion Mil Muertes! Catrina’s Disciples of Death will also defend their Tag Team Trios Championship titles in a tag match with The Unlikely Trio of Ivelisse, Son of Havoc, and Angelico! Will The Unlikely Trio hit the high road – or will they and Fenix overthrow the Temple’s current rulers? We’ll find out tonight on the all-new episode at 8 P.M. EST, only on El Rey Network!
Also, don’t forget that Texano Jr. and Chavo Guerrero Jr. will go at it again tonight in a Bullrope Match! Don’t miss the continuation of one of the longest feuds in Lucha Underground history! Will we see an update on Cortez Castro and Joey Ryan’s case against Dario Cueto? What will happen The Crew and their alliance with Chavo Guerrero? Perhaps we’ll see that tonight, as well!
Also, just a reminder that Aztec Warfare II is only ONE WEEK away! Will we see two huge title changes tonight going into one of LU‘s biggest events of the season? How about the wrath of other possible contenders for the LU Championship, such as Johnny Mundo, “The Machine” Brian Cage, Prince Puma, and Pentagon Junior? Also, is Taya Valkyrie in good enough shape for a possible role in Aztec Warfare, after the ruthless beating she endured from her match with Cage last week? And we can’t forget Mundo sacrificing Valkyrie to save himself towards the end of the match.
Tonight is going to be huge in determining what will happen next week. Catrina could possibly use Mil to pursue the goal she put former Gift of the Gods Champion King Cuerno in line to do – kill Fenix. And the Disciples of Death could possibly put an end to Ivelisse, who established a feud of sorts with Catrina and Mil in the season premiere. If The Unlikely Trio wins the Trios titles tonight, and Fenix wins the LU Championship – things will only get more interesting.
And more violent, of course.
In the meantime before the new episode airs tonight, you can check out last’s week live coverage, and stay tuned for the full analysis of last week’s events!
Tonight’s Twitter buzz!

Promo: Fenix and Catrina
We get a promo of Fenix in the locker room with his championship. Catrina appears, saying that she’s tried everything to destroy him. She desires his powers because she wants to live again, be a whole person. (Ghost boss lady = canon.) She takes his hand and holds his head. She wonders if she made the right choice in leaving Fenix. They share a passionate kiss in the darkness.
It is their final kiss, the Kiss of Death, before Mil Muertes will destroy him once and for all.
We’re back in Boyle Heights. Time for the…
