Here's a place to check results and comment along with the latest airing of Lucha Underground in its regular Wednesday night at 8PM Eastern time slot on El Rey Network.
Geno will be keeping you up on of all the happenings in Boyle Heights here while the show airs. Bill Hanstock will also bring you a recurring reactions post every week after the show. In addition to a way for folks to keep up, this space is for you to rave and/or bitch about whatever goes down on the hottest new concept to hit pro wrestling in ages - during its initial broadcast!
El Rey is available via the cable and satellite providers list on their webpage here. If one of those is your hook-up and you can't find the channel on your box, reach out to them and ask for it. If you don't see your provider listed or you've cut the cord, you can find El Rey on the Sling streaming subscription service here and fubo.tv here. Or you can order the episodes on iTunes here.
NOTE: Spoilers are out there for these pre-taped broadcast, but many Cagesiders don't partake. If you are going to post or discuss spoilers for this show before they happen, or results of future shows, please use the spoiler bar in your comment.
ANOTHER NOTE: Do not post links to pirate streams or other unlicensed means of watching the show. We all wish it was easier to get El Rey, and trust them when they tell us they're working on it. In the meantime, keep it legal while you're hanging at cSs.

Let us do this.
Right away, Pentagon Jr. is here to remind us CERO MIEDO.
Catrina tells him he never received an invitation to Aztec Warfare 2 and he says he only listens to his master and he has zero fear. Catrina then tells Fenix he'll take his last breath tonight and Mil Muertes will take his title back. Then she disappears before Fenix and Pentagon give each other a final glance before walking in opposite directions.
Matt Striker confirms what Catrina said before, that Pentagon wasn't given an invite. Vampiro says that's "whacked!"
Let's do it!
Aztec Warfare 2
Entrant 1: Fenix
Entrant 2: Rey Mysterio
The back and forth was good while it lasted but there isn't much time in a match like this.
Entrant 3: King Cuerno
My man wrecked shop as soon as he got in, putting Mysterio down before hitting the Arrow from the Depths of Hell on Fenix who had crawled around on the outside. Mysterio recovered to hit a splash off a slide on the outside.
Entrant 4: Argenis
Great superkick on Fenix, then he straight out kicked Mysterio in his ass. His actual ass. It wasn't long after that he was teamed up on and eliminated by Rey.
Entrant 5: Johnny Mundo
Some good action with Rey Mysterio that fans were really into.
Entrant 6: Joey Ryan
This man's music is amazing. He came out and pulled some handcuffs from his trunks. He handcuffed himself to the barricade. He was superkicked for his trouble.
Entrant 7: Prince Puma
He got in, went flying all around, killed everyone, then did a drive by punch on Joey Ryan.
Entrant 8: Jack Evans
Just as Evans was getting in, Cuerno was submitted by Mysterio with an armbar. So far, he has both eliminations.
Eliminated: King Cuerno
This is impossible to keep up with.
Entrant 9: Taya
Vampiro is in love with this woman. "She's a very fine piece ... of the puzzle."
Mundo was really happy to see her. The heels and babyfaces squared off and did battle in the ring three on three.
Entrant 10: Cage
The heels had dispatched the babyfaces to control the ring when Cage got in and laid them all out one-by-one. They went to commercial and when they came back he was still killing everyone. Finally, Mundo hit a superkick after Cage body slammed Taya.
Entrant 11: Mascarita Sagrada
He got in running wild, then tried a dive on Mundo but was caught, put down, and kicked in the face. Cage came back from the glass Mundo had thrown him through and put him down with Weapon X just after. Puma eliminated him.
Eliminated: Johnny Mundo
Entrant 12: Marty The Moth
Sagrada went after him but got kicked again. Poor guy. Marty was cleaning up, just brutalizing everybody. Finally, Evans tossed him from the ring just as the next guy was coming in.
Entrant 13: Drago
Naturally, it was a chief rival.
After a commercial, Drago was chasing Evans around. That included going by Ryan, who got sprayed in the face. Back in the ring, Mysterio and Sagrada teamed up to take out Marty the Moth.
Eliminated: Marty The Moth
Entrant 14: The Mack
Moth was trying to leave but Mack wanted to hit him with a stunner first. Then he got in the ring and had a staredown with Cage before they started throwing hands. He hit Cage with a stunner too before they cut to the outside and Ryan was getting Sagrada thrown into him.
Entrant 15: Chavo Guerrero
Jack Evans just got powerbombed on the steps. Chavo went after Sagrada and Striker called him out for going after the weak link.
Suddenly, Mundo reappeared with a cinderblock and blasted Cage on the head with it. Taya pinned him just after.
Puma showed up and took Taya out right after.
Entrant 16: PJ Black
He immediately went after the Drago and Evans fight in the crowd. Evans ended up getting tossed on the floor. A "this is awesome" chant broke out.
Entrant 17: Aerostar
He got in flying all around. They did a simultaneous elimination of Drago and Jack Evans with Aerostar and Black doing the honors.
Eliminated: Drago, Jack Evans
I don't know if it was just a good sell but Evans legitimately looked knocked out.
Entrant 18: Dragon Azteca Jr.
I can barely keep up with everything going on in this match, it's insane.
Entrant 19: Texano
He came in swinging the bull rope and cleared the ring to head to commercial. There was a big dive on the outside that took everyone out before Black got in and was taken out.
Eliminated: PJ Black
Entrant 20: Mil Muertes
He came in slow and Pentagon Jr. launched a sneak attack through the crowd with a chair. The crowd gave him a big "cero miedo" chant. He threw Mil in, he was splashed by Rey Mysterio and Prince Puma helped pin him.
Eliminated: Mil Muertes
Catrina was pissed and told Vampiro to "get the fuck out" before slapping him hard across the face. The countdown clock was going again and Striker told us it was a technical glitch. But when it hit zero, DARIO CUETO came out and said this is his Temple and there is another entrant, his brother.
Entrant 21: The Monster Matanza
He got in and everyone got together in an attempt to gang up on him but he threw everyone off, slammed Fenix, then pinned him. We'll have a new champ.
Mack came up and hit a stunner but Matanza no sold it and suplexed him into a pin.
Aerostar tried his luck but met the same fate as Mack.
He spotted Joey Ryan on the barricade and bent the steel to get him in the ring. He had his way with Ryan with a few slams before pinning him.
Eliminated: Joey Ryan
Mysterio, Azteca, Chavo, and Puma were left and they were trying to figure out what to do on the outside. Chavo turned on them and sent Azteca in to deal with Matanza before taking out Rey and Puma himself.
You know how this goes.
Eliminated: Dragon Azteca Jr.
Chavo went over to Dario to talk and, apparently, try to make a deal. They cut to Dario as Chavo was walking to the ring and he did the throat slash. Matanza clotheslined him, hit a standing shooting star press, and pinned him.
Eliminated: Chavo Guerrero
That left just Puma and Mysterio to get in and try to double team this monster. They were thrown around and beaten down. Matanza hit the German Suplex and bridged into a pin on Puma.
Eliminated: Prince Puma
Mysterio slowly got back in the ring while fans chanted for him. I think they were saying "you still got it." Even if that's true, he's probably going to die right now. Improbably enough, he got far enough to set up the 619 but Matanza blocked it. He was setting up for a slam but Rey slipped out and actually did hit the 619. Matanza went to a knee, then got back up and caught Rey coming off the top rope. SLAM. DEATH. DONE. IT'S OVER.
Eliminated: Rey Mysterio
