Lucha Underground Result (9/5): The Thrill Of The Kill

Welcome to Fightful's coverage of Lucha Underground. This week, Pentagon Dark defends his Lucha Underground title in the main event.

But first, we start with Catrina and King Cuerno alone as Catrina leaves Cuerno, saying that she never loved him. As Catrina leaves, Melissa Santos confronts Catrina and Santos starts attacking her. Both women have an action-movie style sequence. Catrina gets the upper hand by landing numerous body punches but Santos gets back to fighting back. Catrina escapes to a shady and dirty attic and Santos follows suit. Santos splashes Catrina with water from a nearby pail. Catrina has Santos in an armbar and then Catrina escapes outside.

As both women continue fighting outside the building, Catrina still keeps throwing body punches and has Santos in a chokehold. Catrina then takes the necklace given to Santos and tries to choke her. Santos eventually escapes and throws Catrina over a railing. As Santos is about to drop Catrina, Cuerno reappears, takes Catrina’s hand, gives her the rock and drops her, seemingly to her death.

Santos and Aerostar stand above Catrina’s lifeless body and Aerostar asks for the necklace. Aerostar then takes the medallion and appears to absorb a black mist.

We then flashback to 10 weeks ago as Catrina kisses Fenix’s lifeless body, then leaves. Aerostar magically appears and then takes out the black mist and revives Fenix. Aerostar then tells Fenix to come with him and now both men teleport back to present day. Fenix and Santos are reunited, but Fenix is still getting adjusted to the timeskip, so it will be some time before Fenix returns to normal. However, Fenix’s eyes are still filled with the black aura.

We return to the Temple and Matt Stryker said Johnny Mundo was scheduled to challenge for Pentagon Dark’s Lucha Underground title, but after Matanza Cueto disrupted Mundo’s wedding, he won’t be competing.
