Recap by: Jason Namako of Wrestleview.com
We see video highlighting the two 10-way matches and Mil Muertes vs. Fenix from the 12/17 episode.
We go inside the Temple where the Aztec warriors dance and beat on drums in preparation for tonight’s Aztec Warfare Match to crown the first Lucha Underground Champion.
Dario Cueto is in the ring and says welcome to my Temple. 2015 is gonna be huge year for Lucha Underground and it all starts tonight because you are gonna witness a match that I, Dario Cueto, invented. Its called Aztec Warfare. Crowd chants “Aztec Warfare.” Cueto says that the luchadore that wants to claim this title will have to survive 19 other competitors. The rules are simple: We will start with 2 men, every 90 seconds, another luchadore enters. Elimination can happen by pinfall or submission and only because I do love violence, anything goes! “Lucha” chants by the crowd. Cueto introduces the first two entrants, first at the unlucky #1 spot, Fenix! And by random draw, the man who is at #2, Johnny Mundo! Its time for Aztec Warfare to begin!
