Cage Match: Matanza vs El Dragon Azteca Jr.

-El Dragon starts by hitting a moonsault off the top of the cage.

-Matanza regains control and just starts tossing Dragon around into the cage.

-Puma fights back and eventually gets Mundo in position for the 630 splash and gets the win.

WINNER and NEW Lucha Underground Champion: Prince Puma- Pretty good match. I don’t think it tops my Top 5 LU matches but definitely Top 10. The interference cancelled itself out in the end.

-HOLD ON. Dario Cueto comes out. He congratulates Puma but then says there will be one more match. It’s Pentagon Dark cashing in the Gift of the Gods Title! Dario tells Puma and Pentagon both of their careers are on the line.

-Mascarita Segrada says he will take the Rabbit Tribe to the White Rabbit.

-Vampiro’s master says he will take down Pentagon.

-Daga (I believe) takes his place as Kobra Moon’s new king. AND HE CUTS OFF THE HEAD OF PINDAR.

-And now the worst part. Dario tells Agent Winter he will get the gauntlet back. Agent Winter says Dario gets a pass, because he will be dead. Dario then GETS SHOT by Agent Winter who says the new boss will clean up his messes. Dario tries making a call to his dad but can’t get anything out.

Well that is a lot to take in. It gives us a couple of new characters for Season 4 if there is one.

Until Next Time,
