Moore's Lucha Underground Ultima Lucha Hit List: Prince Puma vs. Mil Muertes, Gift of the Gods, Vampiro and Pentagon Jr, Chavo, Johnny Mundo vs. Alberto El Patron

Ultima Lucha Hits

Johnny Mundo vs. Alberto El Patron: Very fun opening match that didn't try to outshine the rest of the show. The match did take some time to get into next gear, but once it did it got very fun. It was also fun to see Melina back in professional wrestling and she looked great. Johnny Mundo picking up a win over the Mega Champion gives him some heat, but the fans also got the payoff to Alberto El Patron's revenge with the Melina spanking and Johnny Mundo being thrown through the glass window. Mundo did look seriously injured as the camera tried to hide him as much as possible and the blood seemed to be pouring excessively.

Pentagon Jr vs. Vampiro: In 2015, it is extremely hard to stomach an ECW garbage hardcore match given how much we've learned since those days. With the fact that we don't see this often and that Vampiro does have in ring limitations, these guys pulled off one hell of a match (albeit, a bit dangerous for the crowd, as I've heard from Will Pruett, who attended this event). Vampiro really cares about his character and telling a story, and Pentagon Jr. does as well. Vampiro being Pentagon's maestro was a cool revelation, and it was also cool seeing Vampiro being converted into Darth Sidious by the end of the show.

The Gift of the Gods Match: At essence, this seemed like the filler match to get everyone on the show, and in fact it was; but what was well done about it was EVERYONE got to tell a story and have a chance to shine in this match. Even Bengala, the low card guy, got to shine. Not just him, King Cuerno got to do the greatest Suicide Dive in the business, Big Ryck looked like a beast, Jack Evans had many chances to steal wins, Sexy Star got to make Marty the Moth tap, Fenix won, and freakin' AeroStar got to jump from the roof of a giant warehouse to the ground. This is how you should be booking multi-man matches and WWE should take note as to how to book the Royal Rumble in similar fashion, a technique that Pat Patterson mastered at one point that seems to be lost in that company.

Mil Muertes vs. Prince Puma: This was a great main event to a great show. The best complement to both luchadores in this match was that all of the action was extra smooth, from the moves to the selling. These guys had the goal in mind to make the other guy look good and that was done amazingly. Speaking of smoothness, how smooth was it when Prince Puma used Catrina as a weapon without harming her one bit, that was like something you'd see out of a Ninja Turtles or Jackie Chan movie. Prince Puma is also the human video game protagonist and the guy has a great match with everyone. He sold that Flatliner like a champ, a Lucha Underground Champ.

Overall Show: Ultima Lucha didn't disappoint and the ending of what may be the end of a series tied up everything well, while also making you want more in the future. I'm so excited to see what Fenix does, who Mantanza Cueto is, who Marty's sister may be (not so much what Marty is planning to do with Sexy Star in that janitor's closet), Drago becoming fire, AeroStar blasting off again, Team Havoc, the list goes on and on. This was not just a great wrestling show, it was a great television series. This is up there with Better Call Saul and Walking Dead folks. Where else do you get a Mexican Ninja against a Vampire, or a Dragon that reincarnates himself as Batman. Like I said before, Lucha Underground isn't Pro Wrestling, WWE is the king of Pro Wrestling and they hate that fact, Lucha Undergroud has combined both Sports and Entertainment so well to be the reigning Rey de Sports Entertainment.

Lucha Underground Misses

El Texano Jr. vs. Blue Demon Jr: If they kept it as a squash match for Texano, I would have been fine, because I actually think that they were doing a decent job with Texano when he isn't involved with Blue Demon. What made this segment suck of all forms of suck-a-tude was the fact that we had to get another minute of Chavo Guerrero in the ring in general. Hell, If Chavo Classic ran to the ring with a steel chair and hit Texano, this match would have gotten an extreme Hit. For that matter, if Swagger's soaring Eagle ran to the ring with a chair to hit Texano it would have gotten a hit, but it was Chavo. Freakin' Chavo!
