Cage loses a match for the potential to become number one contender but because he’s pissed off Pentagon this week he gets his title match anyway.
I love it to be honest. I really do.
PAUL LONDON vs DEZMOND X
GIFT OF THE GODS MEDALLION MATCH
Winner : Dezmond X
Dezmond debuting and straight off the bat looking strong. London took the fight to him right off the bell and whilst using his Rabbit Tribe he was able to control the pace of the match in the beginning but it didn’t take long for it to swing a little. London is pretty unique in everything he does but Dezmond was pretty impressive.
After London murdered someone in the episode before I thought we’d see something a little different from him, instead it was just a colour change, his normal crazy match and then a loss to a newcomer who I’m actually really interested in seeing square off against the others.
Fantastic way to start the episode. Liked the quick roll up win, Dezmond X just looks like the coolest of cool dudes.
DRAGON AZTECA, JR. vs KING CUERNO vs IVELISSE vs DEZMOND X vs SON OF HAVOC vs THE MACK vs MIL MUERTES
GIFT OF THE GODS BATTLE ROYAL
Winner : The Mack
So this match.
THIS match was to eliminate one person from the match next week so instead of a seven way match it will be a six way match.
Not a long match by far. Mil eliminated Cuerno, Ive and Dezmond in fast succession before being taken out by Dragon, who eliminated himself as well, Mack and Son of Havoc.
With the two trio champion wrestlers left Son of Havoc eliminated himself so that The Mack could pick who was eliminated from the match next week and of COURSE he picked Mil.
It was fast and to the point, it evolved the story with the Trio Champions, started one with Mil and Mack as well as maybe something between Cuerno and Ive? Maybe not but he was shoving her a little in the ring before the match and then went straight to eliminate her in the beginning. Maybe. Mil destroyed everyone after the announcement.
It might not have been much of anything but I loved it.
VIBORA vs JOHNNY MUNDO
Vibora is weird to watch, I really love watching him in the ring. He is kinda just super bendy and really tall.
It had a great moment where Taya gets involved just for Cobra Moon to do the same and the two girls getting into the ring to fight each other. Love how they were so important to telling the story in the match, love Taya.
Pretty slow match, a lot of Vibora’s moves take time to get into, he’d hit Johnny with big moves before positioning him to another big move. It made the match difficult to watch for a little bit but the story won me over. Johnny taking out Cobra Moon, PJ getting involved, Vibora being nearly impossible to take down, chaos and just this whole feud getting more nasty by the second.
In the end Vibora was able to win and the two groups went to war after the match with chairs, lots of kicking and PJ Black’s very colourful hair.
XO LISHUS / JACK EVANS / RICKY MUNDO
Well the XO stuff was hilarious and loved it, Jack creeping on XO was funny but the best thing was Ricky and his dolly deciding that they don’t like Jack Evans and maybe, just maybe, they should do to Evans what they did to Angelico.
Man I love that Doll, it is such a creepy thing and so weird but I just love it.
CAGE vs PENTAGON DARK
LUCHA UNDERGROUND CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Winner : Pentagon Dark
It was the match you thought it would be. Bad blood boiling over. Match started on the outside, saw Pentagon choke Cage with the camera cord and Cage tying Pentagon’s mask to the railings. It didn’t get any less violent and personal even if it did get into the ring.
It was a much shorter match then I thought it would be and Pentagon was kind of easily in charge of the match the majority of the time but it was a fun match and it felt more like another chapter then Cage’s last chance even though Pentagon pretty much beat him fair and square.
I dunno, I liked the match but I also felt like it didn’t really give us the Cage we’ve been seeing leading up to this, his match against Mil was much more full on then this one. Cage is another guy that Pentagon can’t break the arm of, Pentagon was just picked up on Cage’s shoulders and dropped on his belt.
Where do they both go from here? Who knows. Who. Knows.
