Wednesday night’s episode of Lucha Underground on El Rey saw not one, but two major moments close out the show, in what may signal the beginning of the end for season four.
After Pentagon Dark successfully defended his Lucha Underground Championship in a grueling triple threat match, narrowing putting down both Mil Muertes and King Cuerno, he was immediately attacked by a familiar face – Marty “The Moth” Martinez.
It was then announced by Antonio Cueto that the Gift of the Gods Championship, currently held by Marty and successfully defended earlier in this very same show, could now be “cashed in” with zero notice. With that, Cueto forced the referee to ring the bell, and a beaten down Pentagon Dark quickly found himself in his second defense of the night.
After a short battle between the two, Pentagon was able to dig down deep and connect with a Destroyer, sending his new opponent scurrying from the ring. However, a debuting Chelsea Green (aka Laurel Van Ness) shocked the world by hitting the ring and dropping the champion with her own version of the Destroyer. With more than little help from his new, surprise friend, Martin was able to score the pinfall to become the new Lucha Underground Champion!
