Quick Hits: Lucha Underground 9.20.17
-Melissa Santos and Fenix are shown training. Melissa gets on top of Fenix and tries taking his mask off but he stops her. Fenix says his mask means everything to him. She gets mad but still ends up kissing him.
Dante Fox vs Texano
-Famous B and Brenda are doing the announcing.
-Fox hits his running parkour flip off the post to the outside.
-Fox ducks one clothesline but can’t duck another as Texano takes him out.
-Texano goes for a pin but Fox has his foot on the ropes before the ref even counts. Was the ref blind?
-Texano hits a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker but only gets two. Famous B calls for the bell and announces Texano the winner. Texano looks confused, allowing Dante Fox to pick up the win with a roll-up.
-After the match Texano tries to beat up Famous B. Dario stops him, saying he needs Famous B to be his announcer. But next week, Texano can fight Famous B. And if Famous B wins, he gets Texano’s contract. Famous B asks how he can fight with a broken arm. Dario says that must make it a handicap match. Ha!
Fenix and Melissa Santos vs Marty “The Moth” Martinez and Mariposa
-Fenix hits a nice sequence of moves on Marty, including a springboard handstand stunner and then a dive to the outside.
-Melissa tries tagging herself in but Fenix says no. Why isn’t that a legal tag? It makes no sense. This allows the heels to take over beating down Fenix.
-Melissa catches Marty with an enziguri kick then a senton off the top. They land some double kicks on the heels but the camera is always positioned so you can’t see Melissa’s actual kicks.
-Marty takes out Fenix then Mariposa ties him to the post. They take Melissa and hit a pedigree slam and pick up the win.
-Marty tries cutting Melissa’s hair after the match but Fenix finally unties himself.
WINNERS: Marty “The Moth” Martinez and Mariposa
Gifts of the Gods Title Match: Pentagon Dark vs Son of Havoc vs Paul London vs Mala Suerte vs Saltador vs Drago vs Cortez Castro
-Pentagon runs and kicks London right in the nuts after the bell.
-Everyone gets a move in until Pentagon shuts down a Son of Havoc dive with a superkick.
-Now we get the everyone gets a move in and goes for a pinfall, only for someone new to break up the pin and repeat the same spot.
-The Rabbit Tribe tries teaming up on Pentagon, but instead Pentagon tosses Saltador into London then hits the Package Piledriver.
-Pentagon then hits the Package Piledriver on London and Son of Havoc hits the Shooting Star Press on Saltador and they both get a pinfall. Dario comes out and makes Pentagon vs Son of Havoc at Ultima Lucha Tres in a Ladder Match.
I was wondering why Gift of the Gods was happening so early and that explains it. Throwaway show otherwise.
Dario is in the limo with “the man in the limo” and says he is making Cage vs Mil Muertes vs Jeremiah Cane a match for the gauntlet, and invites the man to Ultima Lucha Tres.
