Recap from last week: Paul Lauria runs his mouth and 911 chokeslams him.

Lauria and his manager Jason cut the type of cheesy promo you’d hope wouldn’t come on if someone caught you watching wrestling. Read the rest of this entry

Television Champ: Dean Malenko (11/4/94)
Tag Team Champs: Tazmaniac and Sabu (2/4/95)

Shane Douglas talks about … Well, forget what he’s talking about … He’s wearing suspenders, people! Suspenders! Something about how Flair needs to retire and Hogan is broken down and ECW has the best athletes. This thing goes on for TWENTY EIGHT MINUTES!!! Paul Heyman, what are you thinking?

The current Lucha Underground champs are as follows:
Lucha Underground Champion: Prince Puma (1/7/15)
Lucha Underground Trios Champions: Angelico, Ivelisse & Son of Havoc (4/22/15)
AAA Mega Champion: Alberto El Patron (12/7/14)

In Dario Cueto’s office, he meets with Big Ryck. He feels that Ryck has lost focus as of late and he’s been blinded by Daivari’s money. Ryck doesn’t like being told that he’s been blinded. Yikes. Dario wants Ryck out of Daivari’s shadow and back in the spotlight. He tells Ryck that tonight he will reveal the power of the Aztec medallions and hands him one of them. Ryck has to decide whether he wants money or power. Why not have them both? Dario hands Ryck a medallion and then Ryck holds out his hand for a big wad of cash. Ahh, just like the old days.

AAA Mega Champion: Alberto El Patron (12/7/14)

Over in Dario Cueto’s office, he pulls out the Aztec Medallions that he’s been making guys fight over. There were seven, but now there are only four. We see that Pentagon Jr is sitting in his office and Cueto asks the man if he wants to compete over one of them. Pentagon doesn’t want a golden medallion. He wants to destroy Vampiro. Tonight, he will force Vampiro to accept his challenge. If he doesn’t though, Pentagon will show him why he is ZERO FEAR. As Pentagon starts to walk away, Cueto wants to know when he gets to meet the Master. He will reveal himself when Pentagon can prove he is ready. Fair enough.
