Show opens in Dario Cueto’s office where he announces that Ultima Lucha Dos will be taking place in a few weeks. Black Lotus is there and Cueto announces that she will face El Dragon Azteca Jr. at Ultima Lucha Dos.
Killshot and Marty the Moth fight to a double count-out. Afterwards, Marty lays out Killshot and again leaves with Killshot’s dog tags.
Vignette inside an interrogation room where Mr. Cisco is being interrogated by Officers Neehan and Reyes. Captain Vasquez is also there, telling Cisco she wants to get Dario Cueto on charges of drug trafficking and murder, but she also thinks he is the lynchpin to the end of days. We find out that Cisco’s real name is Francisco Garza and either he helps them by wearing a wire, or he’ll be sent to prison because he is a long-time criminal. Garza agrees to help them.
Nunchucks Match: Drago and Aerostar def. Lucha Underground Trios Champions PJ Black and Jack Evans by pinfall when Drago pinned Evans with the Dragon’s Tail cradle.
Main Event in a 12-Man Tag where the winning team moves on to a Six to Survive match next week to crown the #1 Contender for the Lucha Underground Title at Ultima Lucha Dos: Lucha Underground Trios Champion Johnny Mundo, Taya, Ivelisse, Fenix, King Cuerno and Pentagon Jr. (subbing for Chavo Guerrero Jr., who Pentagon laid out prior to the match) def. Rey Mysterio Jr., Prince Puma, Sexy Star, The Mack, Son of Havoc and Texano Jr. by pinfall when Mundo pinned Puma after Mysterio accidentally crotched Puma on the turnbuckles.
Show closes with a backstage vignette where Catrina goes to King Cuerno’s lair and brings Mil Muertes back to life.
