HIPSTER BAND OF THE WEEK: Voodoo Glow Skulls.
Your hosts are Matt Striker and Vampiro.
- Six To Survive Match: Johnny Mundo vs. Fenix vs. Pentagon Jr. vs. Taya vs. Ivelisse vs. King Cuerno
Elimination rules here. Last luchadore standing wins. Once everyone clears out after getting beat up, Taya and Ivelisse are left to get physical. Mundo helps out his girl and drills Ivelisse with Moonlight Drive for two. Taya busts out a Gunnslinger (!!) on Ivelisse, but Mundo wants the glory and covers her for another nearfall. Fenix comes in and saves the day for Ivelisse. He and Pentagon work together to do the Dudley Boyz WASSUP spot to Mundo. Cuerno takes Pentagon to the floor with a tilt-a-whirl DDT allowing Mundo to get back some retribution with a corkscrew plancha. Meanwhile, Ivelisse attacks Fenix and Cuerno and gets tossed onto Pentagon and Mundo. In the ring, Cuerno jumps Fenix and gives him a reverse rana. As he picks up Fenix for the Thrill of the Hunt, MIL MUERTES AND CATRINA RETURN. Muertes runs down Cuerno with a SPEAR and powerbombs him for the END OF THE WORLD from Mundo. That’s enough to send Cuerno back to the locker room at 4:21.
When we come back, Mil Muertes and Catrina are nowhere to be seen. Mundo and Taya are beating up people. Ivelisse tries to get Fenix to hit her, but he won’t do it. He’s too much of a MAN. Meanwhile, Pentagon is kicking the crap out of Mundo and Taya now. Ivelisse actually clears the ring of Fenix and Pentagon, but gets double-teamed by Mundo and Taya. He fights back and headscissors Mundo to the floor. Taya tries to put her away with a flying moonsault, but Ivelisse moves. Taya cuts her off once again before delivering a Northern lights suplex followed up with a double stomp. She sits down on Ivelisse and gets the three-count at 8:54 shown.
AND THEN THERE WERE FOUR! Fenix and Mundo head to the floor while Pentagon kicks Taya in the vagina. He continues to slap her chest and kick her all around. To get away from Fenix, Mundo throws him into the barricade. He gets back into the ring and dares Pentagon to come after him. Have these two had a showdown yet in Lucha Underground? I don’t think so. They exchange elbow strikes on each other until Taya grabs Pentagon’s foot and Mundo drills him with the Flying Chuck. Taya delivers the northern lights suplex and double stomp to Fenix that finished off Ivelisse, but Fenix kicks out. Mundo and Taya rule the ring for a little bit. When that’s over, Fenix double stomps Mundo on the apron with some MAJOR air time while Pentagon delivers the FEAR FACTOR to Taya for our next elimination at 14:23 shown.
Now Mundo is in serious trouble. We get some center stage chopping here. Fenix comes off the ropes and takes a backdrop from Mundo and headscissors Pentagon away. Pentagon then rolls out and takes a sabbatical on the ropes. And why not? Let Fenix and Mundo fight it out. Fenix takes what Mundo dishes out and baits him to try a tope suicida only to kick Mundo in the face. With both men on the floor, Pentagon makes his move and busts out a somersault plancha. Fenix wins a strike fest against Pentagon and headscissors him using the apron. Mundo does a double jump twisting plancha on those boys. He then sits Pentagon in a front row seat and running knees him in the face. Back inside, Mundo STILL can’t pin Fenix. When Pentagon reenters the ring, Mundo is right there to nail him with a spinning neckbreaker. Mundo starts nailing both guys with knee strikes one after the other. They start to fight back against Mundo and put him on the top rope for Fenix to double stomp him on the neck. BRUTAL. Fenix and Pentagon give Mundo this wheelbarrow suplex move that lands Fenix on top of Mundo with Pentagon still attached to him for the three-count at 23:15 shown. Well, I don’t know what you call that move.
It’s come down to Fenix and Pentagon. Both guys exhausted, but not giving the other any quarter. They start trading these epic lucha submissions with nobody giving up. Fenix lucha armdrags Pentagon to the floor and takes him out with a tornillo. That gets two. Pentagon comes back with a flipping piledriver out of the corner that just looked disgusting. That only gets two. Fenix stops Pentagon up top and brings him down with a double jump headscissors for 1-2-NO! As they go on the run, Pentagon delivers a few Sling Blades. He tries a third one, but Fenix sees it coming and superkicks Pentagon down. Pentagon avoids a double stomp on the apron and superkicks Fenix down to the floor for a flip piledriver. Time for the FEAR FACTOR in the ring, but Fenix counters with an inverted piledriver of sorts for 1-2-NO! More strikes are traded. Superkicks are traded, but Pentagon seems to win that battle. As Fenix is staggered, Pentagon comes off the middle rope and jumps on Fenix for the flip piledriver! He holds onto Fenix and stands up for the FEAR FACTOR! Cover, 1-2-3. (36:11 shown) Totally awesome match. An easy Lucha Underground MOTYC as far as I’m concerned. I don’t know how they will be able to top this for the LU title match at Ultima Lucha Dos, but we’ll see. ****½
Matanza and Dario Cueto come out to hold up the belt and the key for some reason. Pentagon Jr. gets on the mic and tells Cueto that when he is done breaking each and every one of Matanza’s bones at Ultima Lucha Dos, he’s coming to break Dario’s bones as well. GREAT SHOW.
Until next time, so long for now.
