Happy Luchagasm Wednesday, Believers! Tonight, two championships will be defended – the Tag Team Trios Championships and the Gift of the Gods Championship! Current Tag Team Trios Champs Rey Mysterio, Jr., Dragon Azteca, Jr., and Prince Puma will have a tag match tonight, with their opponents including Jack Evans and “The Darewolf” PJ Black! Current Gift of the Gods Champion Chavo Guerrero, Jr., who won his title last week from the seven-luchador match, will defend in a singles match with “The Machine” Brian Cage! Will Cage get his revenge on the dirty player for stealing his Ancient Aztec Medallion? And will our current Tag Champs Dream Team retain? Tune in to see!
Famous B keeps snagging opportunities for fame for Mascarita Sagrada. Watch the mini legend take on King of Sleaze Joey Ryan in a singles match tonight! We may also get more updates on his crime-style, undercover storyline.
Note the title of this episode, “Enter the Mundo.” Recall that the last time we saw Mundo and Valkyrie, there was unrest between them and Ivelisse and Son of Havoc. Where do the former Tag Team Trios Champs go from here, especially if Angelico is still in his injury storyline?
Booyaka! Return here at 8 P.M. sharp for the play-by-play of the violence.
