Recap by: Jason Namako of Wrestleview.com
We start where we left off last week, inside Dario Cueto’s office with the debuting Alberto El Patron.
Cueto: “Alberto, thank you for coming to my Temple. You really surprised me last week. You know, I always admired you, Your suits, your cars, I like it.”
Alberto: “And I like your key. What does it unlock?”
Cueto quickly changes the subject.
Cueto: “So, you’re here, now what?”
Alberto: “I love your temple and what it represents. But before I plant my flag in this place, there’s something I need to get off my chest.”
Cueto: “Alberto, as much as I’d like to hear you out, this my friend, is a temple for combat.”
Alberto: (laughs) “Oh, I know that. But, grant me this request and I promise you this place will never be the same. And the next time I come to your office to ask you for anything, it will be for blood.”
We go inside the Temple, then go to the opening match.

Back from commercial, we go backstage as Catrina runs into Mil Muertes.

Muertes goozles Catrina.
Muertes lets go of Catrina and walks off. Chavo walks up to Muertes, then goes after him, but Muertes goozles him and slams him into the wall.
Muertes: “Next week, you pay your debt.”
Muertes lets go of Chavo and walks off.
We go to a promo from Big Ryck, who is sitting in a darkened room.
Ryck: “Forgive me father, for I am about to sin. I’m gonna destroy 3 Judas’s who betrayed me. Father, if you saw what I saw, you wouldn’t want to stop me. (We see video of the Crenshaw Crew’s attack on Big Ryck that included burning his eye with a lit cigar.) I promise you, these hands won’t shed innocent blood. They only came around when the getting got good. Cortez Castro, he done screwed up. Mr. Cisco is a wart-infested rat. Hold him to the same fire he held me to. I led them, I fed them, I protected them and now its time for Big Ryck to go Old Testament. Vengance is mine!”
Back from commercial, before our next match, Son of Havoc has a mic.
Havoc: “Finally, Dario Cueto has given me some real competition. So, I’m dedicating tonight’s victory to the baddest b***h in this building and the love of my life, the beautiful Ivelisse.”

Back from commercial, ring announcer Melissa Santos introduces the debuting Alberto El Patron, who makes his way to the ring, carrying the AAA Mega Title to a HUGE reaction from the crowd. “El Patron” chants by the crowd as Alberto has a mic.
Alberto: “I knew it, I knew it, there’s only friends here tonight. And just because of that, I’m gonna get rid of all of this. (Alberto removes his suit jacket and tie.) I don’t have to impress all of you because you are my family. And this is the best part, I’m finally here with all of my friends in Lucha Underground. (“Lucha” chants from the crowd.) Exactly, that’s what I’m talking about, lucha, lucha, because as you all know, I come from a Lucha Libre family. My legendary uncle, Mil Mascaras and my father, my inspiration, the great luchadore, Dos Caras. And amigos, they taught me everything I know about this business. They taught me everything, the love, the respect, the passion. Like we Latinos say, its all about family. And of course, I love that name, Dos Caras Jr., every single day. But, there was a place that I needed to go, a place that I needed to conquer, the United States. And it was here, amigos, that I became a household name, I became I idol, an icon, for my people, la raza. And then, you all know what happened. Back there, they embraced me, but when I turned around, they stabbed me in the back. They didn’t respect me, my family, or what I represent. And that’s why I’m here, that’s why I left. Last year, in December, I became the first Luchadore ever to hold every single major title in North America. And now you wanna know why I’m here, in Underground, why I’m in Underground, I’m gonna tell you why, amigos. I’m here because I want to work in a place where the word equal means something, a place where they don’t hold you back because of the color of your skin, a place they only held you back if you don’t get the job back and Alberto El Patron always gets the job done. (“El Patron” chants from the crowd.) So tonight, the revolution begins and the revolution is Alberto El Patron…..”
All of a sudden, the debuting Texano runs in and attacks Alberto from behind. Texano is the man Alberto beat for the AAA Title in December. Texano repeatedly whips Alberto with a belt, then wraps the belt around his fist and unloads with right hands. Texano holds up the AAA Mega Title over the fallen Alberto.
Texano: “This belongs to me, Alberto, and you know it and soon it will be back on my waist.”
Texano leaves the fallen Alberto in the mic as the show closes.
