Ivelisse tells her to back off but she uses Jedi mind tricks and flees the scene. Ivelisse and Havoc end up in a compromising position and Angelíco walks in.

Striker & Vampiro run down the card so far for Ultíma Lucha before we get the weekly sit down interview. This week, Vamp is with Pentagon, Jr. He apologizes for jumping in during the Sexy Star stuff a few weeks ago. Vampiro wants to know who the “master” is and gets no response. Things get heated and Pentagon Jr calls out Vampiro for Ultíma Lucha…

Striker & Vampiro talk up Ultíma Lucha to close the sh–here’s Pentagon Jr! He attacks Vampiro from behind. He nails him with a chair, leaving him laying. He douses him in gasoline (!) and says he has one week to accept his challenge or his family & the world will watch him burn, as he blows the flame out on a lighter. Holy shit, what an ending!

As is the case most weeks, Lucha Underground was fantastic yet again . Strong show this week with some excellent in-ring action and the Pentagon Jr/Vampiro angle was A+. The build to Ultíma Lucha is excellent and is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated cards of the year. This is a must – watch episode, one of their strongest in a while.
