Que gusto de verte (a Lucha Underground preview)

When Dario Cueto takes back a Temple, he doesn't mess around.

El Jefe returned last week and entered his brother, THE MONSTER MANTAZA CUETO, in Aztec Warfare. Now he's not only back in charge, but he's got his hooks into the Lucha Underground champion. Under the rule of Catrina and Mil Muertes, the Temple infamously became "a much darker place". Will things get any brighter now that the original management is back in charge?

As you can see in the above clip, first up on Dario's agenda, as always, is violence. Team Dysfunction just managed to reclaim their Trios title from the Disciples of Death - and had to put their future with the company on the line just to get that shot - and it seems they'll be thrown right back into the same pit as Cueto starts a new tournament for three-person teams.

Maybe the DoD won't be what they once were, however. Not only have they been proven mortal by Ivelisse, Angelico and Son of Havoc, but their mistress has her attention split between gathering her power and her hatred for Vampiro and Pentagon, Jr. And Mil probably won't be happy that her schemes only resulted in his holding onto the throne for eight episodes.

Last week saw big debuts from the new champ, plus Rey Mysterio and his trainee, Dragon Azteca, Jr. This week, we'll see the first in-ring work from Marty the Moth's mysterious sister, Mariposa, when Sexy Star faces her fears and steps between the ropes with the new lady luchador.

All that, and Dario teasing an innovative way to get his brother a new challenger, the folks at El Rey hinting we could even have a title match tonight, no one knows what's up with the Gift of the Gods now that Fenix cashed it in... and Robert Rodriguez's Chingon is our house band!

See you tonight.
