Welcome to Fightful's coverage of Lucha Underground. This week, we see the conclusion of the war between Worldwide Underground and the Reptile Tribe, but first, we start off with Antonio Cueto in his office. Cueto is talking on the phone as Mariposa enters the office and says the stories she’s been told doesn't do him justice and tries to seduce him at first.

Mariposa then says that she wants to be in the Gift of the Gods championship match but Cueto says no. Mariposa then drops a lot of money to Cueto's desk to bribe him and Cueto accepts. Mariposa gets her shot at Dragon Azteca Jr.'s Gift of the Gods title later in the episode.
