This week is the start of the Cueto Cup! A singles tournament to earn the number one contender spot for the Lucha Underground Championship and the Cueto Cup itself. Last week, Dario Cueto also told us that at the conclusion of the Cueto Cup, there will be a Lucha Underground Championship match featuring Johnny Mundo, the reigning champ, and Rey Meysterio. Therefore, the winner of the Cueto Cup could be facing either one for the belt. Earlier today, Lucha Underground via Twitter put up the brackets, so here you go!
As you can see, there's a lot of matches to get through! (Also notice that Son of Havoc's challenger is to be determined.)Tonight, we will see Drago, now under the influence of Kobra Moon, go against his old team member Aerostar. Follow us to see who will be getting eliminated, and who is one step closer to Lucha Underground gold! The action starts tonight on the El Rey Network at 8 EST.
We start in Dario's office with Pentagon Dark back! Pentagon grabs Cueto's finger forcefully after he pointed at him. Cueto says he will put Pentagon Dark in the Cueto Cup, Dark says if he does leave Ultima Lucha Tres with Lucha gold, he will break Dario's bones.
