Welcome to the Over/Under of Lucha Underground for season 3 episode 8, where we talk about the best and worst moments from the best supernatural pro wrestling telenovela ever made. If you need to catch up, you can read about season 1 here, and season 2 here. Season 3 episode recaps can be found here.
Re-post: If you’re still wondering how to watch the show, it airs every Wednesday night on El Rey Network. If you don’t have El Rey on your cable system, you can get it on Sling. If you can’t do that, you can download the episodes on iTunes. They’re selling a “season pass” right now where you can get every new episode right after it airs. If you can’t do that, and you demand viewing information without just being a cheapskate and googling “watch lucha underground online free,” I don’t know what to tell you. Watch the show.
And now, the Over/Under on Lucha Underground season 3 episode 8, originally aired on October 26, 2016.
Over: Dissension Leading To Descension
Okay, before we talk about anything from this week’s episode, we need to talk about the Ultimate Opportunity.
As you know if you’ve been following along, They Call Him Cage and They Call Him Texano Even Though He’s From Mexico are locked in a technically pre-Sheamus-and-Cesaro best-of-five series for what Dario Cueto has called the, “ultimate opportunity.” It’s the biggest and best one yet, he swears.
So far, the matches have been underwhelming. Match three is the best of the series so far, with Cage arrogantly and nonchalantly hitting Texano with everything he’s got in the tank but making these lackadaisical covers. Texano stays gutsy and keeps kicking out, and is able to counter a slam into a small package out of nowhere to win the match and keep the series alive at 2-1.
That in itself would be worth an Over, but the major development here is that we (kinda sorta) find out what the Ultimate Opportunity is. Remember Lorenzo Lamas and that cigar-smoking limo devil that threatened Cueto on behalf of the weird lucha libre Wolfram and Hart they (and I guess Cueto) work for? There’s a followup this week in the parking lot where Cueto gets into a limo with a progress report, and we find out that the winner of the Texano vs. Cage series will be the new HOST BODY (!) for a descended God. Wait, what?
