I feel like they maybe realize they ran into a problem with having two star attractions (Matanza and Pentagon) whose deal is, after winning a match, they basically eliminate someone from the roster. Hence two kinda goofy finishes to prevent them doing their thing.

Reclusa was looking cool though.

I hope there's another season (I can't imagine how) because Reklusa was fun. I'd also love to see the Fenix/Mil team happen more. I loved that vibe that they hate each other but have an understanding. And christ they were fun.

Someone please get a gif of the cameraman getting hit and somersaulting out of it to get back up and keep filming. That was great.

If there's one thing that's been fun about Hernandez over the years, it's watching his increasingly poor tattoo decisions.

So...given JAKESTRONG'S dialogue in this episode, and the growly voice, etc. , are we going for JAKESTRONG is the shadowy guy from the limo? Papa Cueto wouldn't know who he was, that was all Dario.

I'm hoping that an Aztec god is just temporarily piloting Jack Swagger's body around, so next season whatever Trump-rear end motherfucker thought all this was a good idea can gently caress off and the god can jump into Big Bad Steve or something.

Of course there's a next season, why wouldn't there be a next season.

As long as there's an El Rey, I imagine there's going to be a Lucha Underground. Not because LU is getting super ratings, but because it's the only thing with ratings on El Rey. Do they have anything else getting eyes on the channel?

At least he realized or someone told him since he's wearing a shirt on Impact.

And LU should stop putting the nutcracker sound over Strong breaking ankles. It's super fake and silly to the point of breaking suspension of disbelief.

Luchablog points out that this was always in the cards with their deal with Netflix. So, hopefully there is a reup with additional seasons? Or at least let it live somewhere else in a complete format. I purchase episodes through Amazon and even there, sometimes new episodes drop on Thursday, sometimes Saturday, it's a real craps shoot.

I can't believe we're so close so UL already. I really thought Marty was a transitional champ but he's carrying it all the way to the season (series?) finale.

That said, as disappointed as I am with nearly everything else, the wrestling is still fun and there's still several matches at UL that say MOTY contender to me.

If they follow up on him possibly being possessed by an evil entity like they implied last week, I'd be into it. As he is right now without a gimmick though, dude is personified.

Agreed. I wasn't thrilled when I heard he was coming in. I wasn't thrilled to see him wrestle. But I actually went out of my way to watch early to see what they did with the demon voice and it's too bad they just didn't bring him in like that from the beginning. Give him a 3 piece suit he could wrestle in rather than that ugly singlet and have him cut more promos dubbed over with the demon voice.

Say what you will, but Strongís knees up reversal of Dante Foxís top rope senton near the end of the match looked like it killed both of them. That couldnít have felt good for either.

Jesus Christ, Fox got killed twice that episode by half-assed catches. I can't believe that springboard reverse shooting star to the outside plopped him right in a dead zone of six people where he just sort of flopped to the ground without any support.

If it's any consolation the pads LU uses on the outside are very thick and dense, they're like mini stunt crash pads. Also, they have PAs running out off camera and stacking extra ones before big spots

It looked like he landed directly on his tailbone with that balcony flip. I wonder how much of that was selling.

Just watched Última lucha cuatro part one and it was pretty good. It'll be interesting to see how part two holds up. Matanza rag dolling Mundo will be a sight to see.

Also does Swerve leaving LU signal a move to the Fed?

Holy poo poo it is the end of the season already? I honestly gave up after 2-3 episodes when there was no sign of Dario coming back. He played an enormous part in holding everything together for me and even if it is the same actor in a different role, it's not the same without "Dario"
