Yep, he broke his jaw at one of the tapings early on in season 3. It's why he's been largely absent from matches so far. I think they've mixed in some stuff recorded later on and moved it up earlier in the tv season to try and bridge the gap as much as possible.

A little weird at the end of the show this week, with the sort of light-hearted crowd chanting not quite matching up to the more serious tone they were trying to set with Marty and Fenix.

Melissa's just so damn cute, though.

I liked the back stage interaction between Fenix and Aero Star for some reason. Casual time travel ribs amongst friends and all.

Taya getting massacred was the right thing to do, I guess, but they're really going to have to work to keep her a heel. The crowd likes her too much.

London's match against MM was....an interesting clash of styles. I liked the beginning and end.

Ep 31: Hell of an ending brawl.
Had a very ECW feel to it, while being 100% LU at the same time.
Dario's reactions were perfect.

I've been way behind on Lucha Underground all summer. I feel about six weeks behind, then watched about one a day for a week before Takeover and Summerslam happened, at which point I stopped again. Right now, I've just finished watching the Cueto Cup quarterfinals and the two weeks of matches where Rey Mysterio faced PJ Black and then Johnny Mundo took on El Dragon Azteca Jr. I'm glad Mundo won clean.

Some observations from the last 5 or 6 episodes:

- PJ Black just had the two best matches that I've ever seen him work, versus Prince Puma and Rey Mysterio Jr. I've never thought he was a bad wrestler, but I never saw him have a match that I thought was a step above being generally good. These two were wonderful, and I don't think his opponents deserve all the credit. I think he really stepped it up.

- Dante Fox is really, really, really good. Like, it is insane how good he is. He's so good! Dante Fox vs. Son of Havoc and Dante Fox vs. Prince Puma were among my favourite matches of the Cueto Cup.

- The other matche that stands out to me as having been awesome as fuck was Jeremiah Crane vs. Killshot.

- Drago is great. I think this story where he's being controlled by Kobra Moon has potential, but the two other guys aren't that good and I now dread any time that Kobra Moon and one of the other reptile tribe luchadores is on screen.

- Famous B, Brenda and Texano is something that I want to see more of.

- I also want to see more of the Rabbit Tribe looking up to Mascarita Sagrada as their god. I loved it when he gave them a lucky rabbit's foot.

- I'm digging Prince Puma's slow turn to the dark side.

- I'm really looking forward to Pentagon DARK vs. Mil Muertes and Fénix vs. Prince Puma. Those are some kick ass semi-final matchups.

I have finished watching the semi-finals of the Cueto Cup. I'm disappointed that both matches, which I was really excited to see, weren't clean. I get wanting to protect Fénix and especially Mil Muertes, but neither guy would be harmed from losing clean. In fact, with Pentagon DARK and Mil Muertes, they could have done the exact same ending sequence with Catrina getting knocked out cold as explanation enough for why Mil Muertes was powerless to kick out at the end. Anyhow, it has felt like there has been way more interference during the Cueto Cup than usual. It is starting to feel excessive.

On the bright side, the show ending brawl with half the locker room was extremely fun. I enjoyed that quite a lot. It did everything it had to do to maintain my excitement for Mundo vs. Mysterio and Puma vs. Pentagon, which I'll watch over the weekend.

I also like that Mil Muertes vs. Cage is coming down the line soon. I would imagine that Ultima Lucha Tres isn't far off, and so I think this is a match that will probably be featured on that card. I anticipate the build up to that event will beginning immediately following the conclusion of the Cueto Cup. I'll know soon enough, as I'll be watching that one in the next few days, too. I should be caught up by next week's show.

The five oh street fight this week was more fun than it had any right to be.

RIP Joey's nuts.

Good to see Matantha back as well.

And good to see the crowd still shitting all over luchasaurus. He's terrible.

Dario Cueto is GOD!

Also, I loved the five-0 Street Fight. Seeing Agent Reyes win was very satisfying. Seeing Joey Ryan's crotch burned and electrocuted was also very satisfying.

Episode 35...

The chair throw into airborne Rey was bru-tal.

I was convinced one of the Believers in a mask was going to be revealed to be Dominic and he would run in to save his dad at the end.

Shows you what I know.

It will be interesting to see how Ms Santos does in her first match next week. I hope it's good.

The backstage gauntlet fight was...interesting. If a bit continuity breaking since Dario didn't have it later.

There was no problem with continuity. Dario Cueto picked up the gauntlet unseen. Presumably, he stashed it away somewhere safe. What his plans are for it? Who knows! However, it makes more sense that he didn't go out to the ring with it, otherwise he would have made himself the target of whichever luchador walked away from that brawl. Dario Cueto isn't stupid.

Melissa Santos' Vampyra-like entrance made me feel strange, but also good.
