I did it, I marked! Partly because I saw the crooked ears of the silhouette and thought it was friggin' Ryback.

I think I liked Fenix/Dragon best, but all the matches were good if gimmicky and the closing video was a highlight as always. Dario's back baby!

Mundo beats Matanza
Pentagon beats Marty for the belt
Vampiro and his master Hexagon Dark beat up Pentagon
Jack Swagger cashed in on Pentagon and won the belt

The season closing video:
Black Lotus rips out Matanza's heart
Possessed Taya beats up Mundo
Swagger beats up Dragon, takes the gauntlet, and presents it to Antonio Cueto, some other goons, and Wade Barrett
Aerostar putting the amulet on Dario in the coffin, bringing him back to life

Basically tripling down on Swagger, Barrett's in the company if/when they come back, hope you're ready for more VampiroVsPentagon!, Dario's back, and Matanza's dead

- Pentagon beats Marty the Moth for the title. He tries to break his arm, but Reclusa stops him. Vampiro runs in to help run her off. Afterwards, Vampiro hands Pentagon the title and right as Pentagon seems like he's going to show some respect, Vampiro attacks him. They fight each other until a new guy -- identified as Vampiro's master -- shows up to kick Pentagon's rear end with flippy poo poo. He noticeably dresses similar to Pentagon.

- Jake Strong shows up and says that Cueto allows him to cash in his Gift of the Gods title. He snaps Pentagon's ankle and wins via Pentagon passing out. Strong is the new champ.

- Aerostar convinces Johnny Mundo to give up the Gauntlet, as it will turn him into a possessed husk.

- Johnny meets with Taya in the locker room, but she holds him by the throat and makes it clear that she's not his wife, but a god.

- Aerostar, Dragon Azteca Jr. and Cuerno meet up about the Gauntlet. Cuerno wants it hidden away, but Azteca suggests using it now before it's too late. Aerostar says to do it quick.

- Black Lotus appears before Matanza, wearing the Gauntlet. She knows that he's the one responsible for her father's death, so she tears his heart out. She returns the Gauntlet to Azteca, with both feeling avenged. After she leaves, Jake Strong ambushes Azteca, snaps his ankle and starts slapping the Gauntlet across his chest while doing the "STRONG!" chant.

- In the limo, we see Vampiro's master, Papa Cueto, the guy who shot Dario and Jake Strong sitting together. The gods all now have human forms, though they lost Matanza. The cigar-smoking leader reveals himself as Wade Barrett and asks if there's any other bad news.

- A flashback shows that after Dario's funeral, Aerostar appears and puts the immortality medallion around Dario's neck. He wakes up confused and goes "What the f--" before the to be continue graphic.

Now I want a season 5. Season 4 admittedly dragged a bit, but I think it was mostly dragged down by external problems. Story wise, it is setting for the bleakest moment, and it would be an absolute bummer if it ended on what is the lowest note by design.
I will say that Strong as a villain makes absolute sense even in a meta perspective, but he absolutely needs to get his comeuppance.

-Do we know that the skeleton samurai is named Hexagon Dark or is that just what people are calling him? I don't remember them naming him. Anyone know who he is?

-Johnny giving up the gauntlet because "nobody possesses this perfect body but ME" is the most Johnny reason ever to give up ultimate godlike powers.

-Looks like Reklusa's run was short and sweet. She didn't get to do much, but good for her for getting signed.

Hahaha that's so weird, before he started speaking in his Manc accent, my first thought was Ryback too. I have no idea why.

So there has to be decent odds that PJ Black is secretly a mole for God Barrett.

For real though this season was stupid as hell but Ultima Lucha was some great popcorn fun. It didn't have MOTY material like Hell of War or career defining moments like Cero Miedo 1, but I had a hell of a lot of fun.
