Lucha Underground S4E4 : Pain, Love and Sacrifice to the Gods

So Fenix and Jeremiah Crane are both deaded.

Catrina should be able to get her life force back now by sucking it out of Fenix I guess, seeing that was what she seemed to be doing. So we are going to get a living Catrina now?

CATRINA & MELISSA

So yeah Catrina does suck the life out of Fenix and in true symbolisim turns from Black Catrina to Red Catrina and goes to brag about everything in Melissa’s face.

BIG BAD STEVE vs JAKE STRONG
Winner : Jake Strong

I love Big Bad Steve and Beautiful Brenda, the whole Vroom, Vroom thing and her screaming things like “give him a tune up” just made me laugh. I just want to see the two of them every week together.

It was quick and just there to make Strong look bad ass. Felt a bit like a blink and miss it match but it wasn’t that bad for Steve, he did have his ankle broken and get powerbombed on the outside after the match but it could have been worse.

Jake Strong taking trophies from his victims as well. I like that side to him wonder where it will lead.

ANTONIO CUETO & KING CUERNO & BRIAN CAGE

So now Antonio is trying to get the gauntlet back but Cuerno is now saying that it has been stolen.

I feel like this itself is the lie and he was being truthful to Catrina that he gave someone the gauntlet to hide, Antonio gives him the chance to win the medallion of his tribe and go on to fight for the Gift of the Gods.

Don’t think he’ll be giving back that gauntlet at any point though.

Cage then walks in and basically wants a title shot, really cringy “I’m the man, he’s a machine” from Cuerno and him being a machine and beating up Pentagon didn’t give Cage a title match it gave him a chance to win a medallion from Mil Muertes next week.

DAGA & COBRA MOON vs JOHNNY MUNDO & TAYA
Winners : Johnny Mundo & Taya

So the fight between the Reptile Clan and WorldWide Underground gets real as the First Couple of the WorldWide Underground take on Cobra Moon and her King.

Taya doesn’t give a shit and started off the match with Daga keeping the pace quick but never really getting a hit on Daga who was able to counter her pretty easily. It was when she started using some more hard hitting kicks and elbows that she was able to get the upper hand.

It was a decent match and Daga did a lot of the work in the match for the Reptile Clan managing to keep both Taya and Johnny at bay.

Unfortunately for them when Daga finally had to leave it to Cobra Moon, Moon was attacked from behind by PJ Black and lost the match, I love the big stamp from Taya it is such a vicious looking move and the feud goes on.

After the match Vibora shows up and is able to overcome the odds to take out all three members of the World Wide Underground. Cobra Moon has her eyes on Johnny Mundo, he did not look happy with that.

ANTONIO CUETO & MATANZA CUETO

Scary stuff where the now fully unsouled monster gets told it is time for his first sacrifice. I would not like to be the person who has to step in the ring with him.

MR. PEC-TACULAR vs MATANZA CUETO
SACRIFICE TO THE GODS
Winner : Matanza Cueto

He dead. There wasn’t a match. He was just murdered by Matanza. Mr. Pec-Tacular is no more. He even got disappeared at the end. He dead.

Dead.

CHAVO GUERRERO JR. vs KING CUERNO
GIFT OF THE GODS MEDALLION MATCH
Winner : King Cuerto

Right from the beginning it was just a fight. Chavo didn’t give Cuerno a chance to get in the ring but neither really was able to get the upper hand. Some great moments and of course it didn’t stay in the ring for long, a lot of reminders about Chavo liking to cheat but he actually didn’t really cheat.

Always been a fan of Chavo’s ever since I saw him in WCW when I was a ickle kid and he has just gotten better with age whilst not ever seemingly having aged.

It probably is the best pure wrestling match we’ve seen this season so far, it didn’t have much of a story and no fun and gimmicks to add to it, even on the outside it just was about the wrestling even though they were able to use the different levels to inflict punishment. Even Striker commented that the match might “just come down to a simple wrestling move” and that is true. It was a reversal of the Three Amigo’s into the sit down package piledriver thing that Cuerno does that won the match.

Fantastic. Just fantastic. Chavo really is a legend.
