Alright, folks, let's Lucha!
Dario is in his office when Angelico comes in. He says he wants Johnny Mundo tonight, title or no title. Dario tells him that Johnny’s lawyer him protected. Angelico threatens to lawyer up and come after Dario since he was on his property when he was violently beaten by the Underground. When he makes a physical threat to El Jefe, the boss tells him he can compete in the Battle of the Bulls for a chance to fight Mundo for the title.
Striker explains the Battle of the Bulls. Four 4-way matches. The winners will go to a final 4-way where the winner gets Mundo. For some reason, Vampiro’s shirt is bulled.
Cage vs. Texano vs. Joey Ryan vs. Dr. Wagner Jr (w/Famous B & Nurse Brenda) in a battle of the bulls match.
Famous B was introducing Wagner and Cage just laid him out.
Cage and Texano trade blows in the middle of the ring. Texano puts Cage down with a leg lariat and then grabes his bullrope from the corner and whips Cage with it. Then Texano hits a top rope flip onto Joey and Wagner on the floor. The Machine follows up with a top rope Moonsault to the floor himself.
Back in the ring, Cage hits a pump handle into a front face slam and then suplexes Wagner in the ring. However, Joey Ryan hits an elbow and goes up top to jump onto Cage. Cage catches him and suplexes Ryan.
Texano and Wagner neutralize Cage quickly and goes on a mini tear. Soon it’s Wagner in control, with a Tornado DDT on Cage and the a leg whip to Texano. The Doc hits a cutter to Texano who’s positioned on the top rope.
It’s Joey Ryan who is able to put down Wagner and then he delivers a big spinebuster to Texano. Cage goes to take the fight to Ryan and soon has control of the sleazy one. He sets him up for a superplex but Ryan reverses it to a swinging neck breaker from the top for a 2 count.
Joey Ryan is the only person standing. He goes up top but Texano is up to meet him. Then soon is Wagner... and then Cage to perform a powerbomb on Texano and Wagner as they suplex Joey!
Famous B tries to get involved but Cage lays him out and then picks up both Wagner and tosses them both.
The match gets to the point where everyone is hitting their moves on the other. Texano is the final standing. He hit a powerbomb to Joey but Cage breaks it up and hits Tex with the rope to the face. This allows him to pick up the pinfall.
Cage advances in the tournament
Sexy Star is in Dario’s office. He gives her a unique opportunity (uh oh) to go one on one with PJ Black. If she wins, she’ll get a Lucha Underground championship rematch. She’s down with it. He says if she wins tonight, no member of the Underground can interfere in the title match because it will be in a steel cage! If she doesn’t win onight, she never gets another title shot ever again. She tells Dario that he may have escaped his troubles in the past, but if he doesn’t keep his promise, she’ll make sure he finds trouble.
Officer Reyes enters Captain Vasquez’s office. He tells her that Dario knows about him. She says she no longer trusts Joey Ryan but she needs Vasquez in that Temple. She’ll have to go back as a masked man.
Sexy Star vs. PJ Black
Things are even early until Sexy hits a kick and a rana. Black immediately follows up with a knee to the gut and that puts him in control briefly. But Sexy is back with some kicks and strikes. Then she rungs up to the tope rope and hits another rana. Black reverses a head scissors into a face first slam.
Black hooks in a pendulum and starts swinging her head first into the corner. Because he’s a dick. Shen he stands her back up, Sexy is back with the strikes and chops. Then she hooks in a Dragon Sleeper but he immediately turns it into a suplex.
The Dare Wolf then hits a springboard moonsault and then goes to the top rope. He takes too much time showing off and she knocks the rope and starts beating him on the top rope... she Frankensteiner’s him from the top but he rolls through right into a Styles’ Clash! 2 count!
He slams her and goes for another springboard moonsault but this time Sexy moves and starts delivering kicks and strikes to PJ. Goes goes for a DDT but only gets a nearfall.
Jack Evans runs in and tosses a bat in the ring. As the ref is getting rid of it, he tries to hold Sexy for PJ to deliver a kick, but Sexy moves and PJ hits Jack instead. Sexy is able to roll him up for the 1-2-3.
Sexy Star def. PJ Black
Kobra Moon is sitting on a snake throne! She talks in front of two kneeled men. She talks about how a millennia ago they were lead three great generals. Two of them were able to survive (the two men in front of her!) Oh shoot, these guys have snake faces! She orders the two generals to find the third man and make him kneel before his queen.
Dario visits his brother in his cage. He wants to make sure his brother really doesn’t want to be part of the Battle of the Bulls. Matanza just wants Rey. He tells his brother that El Dragon Azteca was blinded by rage and he almost lost his life. Matanza puts his hand on Dario’s head lovingly... but then pulls him face first into the cage knocking him out! Holy crap! Then he reaches for the key on the ground as the scene ends!
Marty “the Moth” Martinez vs. El Dragon Azteca vs. Mil Muertes vs. The Mack in a Battle of the Bulls match
Oddly enough, Mack and Marty are working together early on Azteca. Azteca is able to side step and Mack nails Marty. Azteca then spikes Mack with a HUGE DDT but soon gets speared by the Reaper’s Trident.
Marty is up and he’s standing toe to toe with Mil... but soon gets 10 lariats in the corner from the Dead Man. In comes Mack with a bicycle kick to Mil. Goes for the cover... 2 count.
Mack gets tossed out of the ring... until Dragon hits a tope con giro onto Mack outside. Mil Muertes then spears Marty, who is on the apron, through the ropes onto the floor! All four men are down outside!
Mil tosses Azteca into the ring and starts laying in some punches. However the smaller man uses his quickness to his a drop kick... until another right hand levels him. He sets up for the Flatliner but Mack runs in a stuns him. Then a TKO from Marty. Mack clotheslines Moth outside and then receives an enziguri from Azteca an dhe rolls out of the ring.
Mil slams El Dragon and goes for a powerbomb but Azteca reverses it into a rana into the corner. He goes up top.. 450! He goes back up for a second move... HERE’S MATANZA! POWERBOMB TO AZTECA! WRATH OF THE GODS!
Dario comes out with the key holding a bloody rag to his head. He becon his brother to him and he follows.
Marty goes to cover Azteca but Mack breaks it up. Mack then hits a stunner to Marty. 1-2-3!
