Dead flowers (a Lucha Underground preview)

Look. I don't even know what the other three coffins are for. But after the previous match between Mil Muertes and Matanza for the Lucha Undergound title went to a no contest because the combatants went through a ceiling, so if Dario Cueto - the champ's brother and proprietor of the Temple - wants four coffins...

It's now called Graver Consequences, but it still appears to be a match won by placing your opponent in one coffin and closing the lid. Last year, when it was just called Grave Consequences and there was only one coffin, that got used as a weapon, so I can only imagine the ways those other three will be used.

Speaking of threes, Mil's partner-in-crime Catrina used to manage a Trio, but now she only has one other man in her stable. And that man, Siniestro de la Muerte, ripped the hearts out of his partners chests, and then won an Aztec Medallion by beating King Cuerno last week. As if things between Catrina and Cuerno weren't bad enough when she helped him attain the Gift of the Gods title and never let him use it for a title shot earlier this season, her clocking him with her magic rock and then denying him the Lick of Death won't help.

(Before we get into more action set for this week, a moment to run down who's got Aztec gold... We covered Siniestro's, and Chavo Guerrero has the medallion he stole from Cage. Sexy Star and The Mack have ones they took out the Moth tribe to get, Aero Star set friendship aside to capture one, and Texano got the first one. That leaves one more in play before we have a seven-way to award the GotG. Okay, back to...)

Also in Trios action, it looks like the previous champs will get a shot at the current ones. But who will replace the injured Angelico on Team Dysfunction? There's no way they're beating Rey Mysterio, El Dragon Azteca, Jr. and Prince Puma two-on-three.

Finally, Joey Ryan in a three-way against his Trios tournament partners Mr. Cisco and Cortez Castro.

Wonder if the corrupt City Councilman trying to impede Joey and Cortez undercover investigation into Dario Cueto has anything to do with that...

See you tonight.
