Don’t click if you want to be surprised, believers!
Lucha Underground just finished tapings last weekend for Season 3, and will continue to do more next weekend, in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, California. This past weekend was the tapings for Aztec Warfare III. El Rey should be airing that episode sometime early next year!
Now here come the spoilers! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
For Aztec Warfare III, “The Monster” Matanza Cueto (who is also currently the LU Champion for the current season as of this posting, Season 2), was the undefeated Champion. He is eliminated via pinfall by Rey Mysterio – which is awesome, considering Mysterio and Matanza were competitors in this year’s Warfare, in which Matanza eliminated Mysterio.
The final two competitors were former LU Champion Mil Muertes and Sexy Star. Sexy Star won Aztec Warfare III after she blocked Mil’s top-rope flatliner, knocked him off the rope through a table, and did a top-rope stomp. This gave her the opportunity to pin Mil Muertes and become the new LU Champion. Catrina was also screaming by the apron – well, not really, but probably.
Like Aztec Warfare II, the Championship title was on the line for III. Recall in Aztec Warfare I, just the status as #1 Contender for the title was the prize for winning the match.
Awesome, right? I really want to see those final moves that cost Mil Muertes the title. Guess we’ll have to wait until next winter! In the meantime, there’s still plenty to be excited for regarding Lucha Underground‘s current season. Another new episode airs this Wednesday!
