Over: Everybody Knows What Cage Is
This week’s show opens with Johnny Mundo, Taya and They Call Him Cage in Dario Cueto’s office. Cueto explains to them that he’s putting them on the same team in the Trios tournament because they hate each other, and that worked out really well for Son of Havoc, Ivelisse and Angelico. It’s a good point. Cage and Mundo both want Lucha Underground gold, and this is a way to motivate them to work together and get it. Either that, or they tear each other apart and Cueto gets his daily recommended allowance of violence.
That sets up Cage’s response, in which Dario Cueto confirms why he’s the best character on TV:
“Tell you what, with or without them, I’m winning the Trios tournament. Because I’m not a man …”
“You’re a machine, yeah, we know.”
