And now, the Over/Under on Lucha Underground Episode 30 from June 3, 2015.

Over/Under: Evil Chavo Guerrero, Already

OK, so I should probably take this as one big thing.

Instead of the normal Lucha Underground tendency to devote one backstage segment per week to a storyline, we get a show-long narrative about Black Lotus returning to The Temple and being swerved by basically every person working there. The show opening is Chavo having a clandestine, sunset conversation with Dario Cueto about his meeting with El Dragon Azteca, and leveraging Dragon’s promises against what Cueto can offer. Cueto agrees to give him “round-the-clock protection from Mexico” in exchange for Lotus being served up to him on a silver platter, and Chavo agrees because he’s the Worst Guerrero Ever.
