Welcome aboard, Kapu, but don't get used to that! Killshot vs Dante was more standard Lucha outing. Don't get me wrong, they pepper in a fair share of mat wrestling with great storytelling, but lots of spots in the midcard.

I thought that it would be accurate to reply you after I watch Fox Vs. Killshot. And I'm in.

Since I just started watching Lucha Underground, I knew nothing much about Killshot and Dante Fox except that they are indulged in a feud. But this match really impressed me. I don't remember watching any other masked person who wrestled in shorts, so it was a nice change.

Now, onto the match, again it wasn't a classic or something. Classics rarely happen on weekly programming but for a midcard match, it was good enough. Good logical spots. My only complaint would be no-selling in the midst of match by both wrestlers. The ending was quite right since it protected the loser. I must say that Dante Fox's finisher is vicious. So, quite a good experience for me. I will regularly watch now onwards but I already know spoilers which infact have spoiled it but what's happened has happened and it can't be changed. One grade down due to no-selling.

I really dont understand what they tried to achieve with the gauntlet match. Pentagon smashed the first two, who look like shit (especially the second match), then the third match looks like its going the way of the others but then for some reason he loses. I have no problem with Pentagon getting the punishment he deserved (though I dont see the point of the Puma/Vampiro dynamic now) but why have him break the arms of the other two?

Striker trying to say that the cero miedo chants are the fans taunting him. No you dick thats the sound of being over.

What name is solomon crowe going by on LU? Interesting dynamic they're playing up between him and catrina.

Finally getting a bit of character to Matanza. Really look forward to how mysterio deals with him and if dario can control him still

MOFUCKING PUMA BEYOND THE GRAVE MONTAGE IS COMING!!!!

In short: confusing in ring, intriguing out of the ring

Thoughts about Aztec Warfare III:
  • Couldn't feel the hype of Matanza. He didn't seem to be as big as he is claimed to be. Maybe because of height? His finisher is cool though and he was well protected while getting eliminated.
  • Found Mil Muertes > Matanza. Looked more intimidating. Had a special aura around him. Would've liked him more as the winner
  • But Sexy Star wasn't a too bad choice either as first female Lucha Underground Champion. An underdog victory for sure but helped Mundo to gain credible heel heat by defeating her.
  • Mundo and his goons were well booked as sneaky heels who use numbers game often.
  • Felt nice to see Rey Mysterio after a long time. Him eliminating Matanza was a surprise though.
  • Jeremiah Krane is Sami Callihan. I couldn't recognize him. He seems a lot bigger here. I saw his match against Kevin Owens last year and he wasn't looking this big. Was impressed by him though.
  • The Mack is a fun character. Surprisingly athletic too. I am interested in him for now.
  • Pentagon Dark became my favorite wrestler. Can't describe how but I just love him now. He came off as an unique wrestler to me.
  • Famous B's selling is hilarious.
  • Special mention to that jump from balcony by Angelico. That was great.
  • Honestly thought that Mascarita was El Torito himself.

Something I didn't like was the camera angles. I don't know what was wrong but it kept degrading my experience. Quick eliminations were just "there". Filler wrestlers were eliminated quickly. I am okay with it.

Now, let's see what storyline they continued or started:
  • Planting the seeds for Rey Mysterio Vs. Matanza
  • Continuing Black Lotus Tribe Vs. Pentagon Dark
  • Continuing Mundo & Goons against Sexy Star.

Quite good, I'm impressed.

Honestly, that first match made me uncomfortable. I'm all for the intergender matches, but the last six minutes were entirely on each ided, and resembled less of a match than it did domestic abuse. While I'm down for man vs woman, the fine line needs careful consideration and respect.

But then again, it served the story. Each member of the triad was more and more difficult for Pentagon to handle. For a gauntlet match, pretty much psychology 101.

My own major issue, the final piece fall was the ONLY Pinfall attempt in the entire series. But then again, as much as I didn't like it, it may have been deliberate.

Jeremiah Crane. I know the old joke goes "What is Darren Sandson doing in the Impact Zone", but this was agregiously on the nose. I'd prefer "Biblical Name Bird". That being said, I dig what's going on here. I hope Ivelisse's injury isn't too bad and they can stay the course, though if you rematch the spot, it looks like her entire lower leg comes loose. Sid Vicious style.

Episode 13
"Breaker Of Bones"
Air Date-> 30 November 2016

Other than Aztec Warfare III, I had seen nothing about Pentagon Dark until this particular episode. Now, I don't know what others think but the breaking of arm by Pentagon Dark was done very realistically. That looks vicious, having your arm snapped in this way. This episode made me a bigger fan of Pentagon Dark. I guess that my current signature signifies that.

Now onto the match, I loved whole episode. The camera angles were a lot better than Aztec Warfare III. So, that's an improvement. Matanza got to show some of his personality traits. Excited for his match against Rey Mysterio. By the way, I expected that Matanza will split away from Cueto but I was wrong. Till now, what I have noticed is that Lucha Underground is just waiting to push Pentagon Dark and I don't know why. I was impressed by the three members of Black Lotus' tribe. Breaking both arms of Pentagon Dark will keep him out of action for a while, I assume. He will surely come back for revenge, obviously breaking arms again.

First time, heard commentary. Matt Striker is just too dumb to be a commentator. Get someone better. The whole stuff with Prince Puma, Vampiro and Pentagon Dark is intriguing enough. Not sure what they are trying with the angle between Catrina and Crane. The match's part 2 & 3 were quite good and part one was average at least. Maybe I underrated it but still. Overall, a quite good episode.

personally dont think its realistic arm break, think it would be better sold as a shoulder dislocation

I think that it's realistic either. What I meant is that the whole move while executed gave the expression that it could really break the arm. Aka It was executed so perfectly that it blurred the line between reality & kayfabe.

I am no specialist on that stuff but it doesn't look like shoulder dislocation in any way. It looks like the arm is broken via snapping it with full force.

Run the bulls is a good concept but I'm not really happy with Cage and Texano being involved. Especially considering that they couldnt be/werent included in Aztec Warfare. Sexy Star's match had a poor finish, at least the story of sexy star fighting for women worked this time with Black trying to be a ladies man. Really enjoying the build to an out of control matanza. Does anybody know how mysterio actually was after aztec warfare? I dont think you'd take him out on a stretcher in that kind of match if he wasnt really injured.

My only issue with the Run of the Bulls is the same issue I have with every LU tournament; give me the brackets! I'm not a huge buff on tournaments to begin with, but analyzing the brackets is part of the fun.

I'm okay with Cage and Texano's involvement, but I don't like that their series is being stretched out. It's been almost 2 months worth of TV since their third encounter. It'll be a strange least another 3 weeks until match 4.

PJ Black showed more personality in that one match than he did in his entire WWE career. Great showing, with indeed a poor finish. Sexy is sloppy as fuckl, though I rather enjoyed her scene with Dario.

I think Rey's injury is a work. I see what you're getting at, but you gotta figure Rey carries a big price tag. They wrote him out quite effectively, if it is indeed a work.

I'm glad to see Angelico back, but I don't know how I'll receive him outside outside for the Trios scene. I miss that group.

I also miss King Cuerno. Where the fuck is my Cuerno? He's in the bleeding trailer!
