Little Lucha Things (12/28/16): The Infinity Gauntlet



AKA the Mascarita Sagrada edition—we'll be back to regular programming next week.


  • Cage wins the Best-of-Five series against Texano. This week's episode saw Texano easily level the series 2-2, before Dario Cueto came out and announced that we also get the final match since he didn't want to postpone the violence. Cage bled in this match, which is probably the most vulnerable we've ever seen him in. This was a good, fun hardcore brawl that made both men look good. For his efforts, Cage gets the Infinity Gauntlet an ancient gauntlet, and we'll have to see later on what exactly that does.

  • Prince Puma is back! Boyle Heights' hometown hero came back to life this week, smashing a pipe into the back of Mil Muertes as the latter fought Jeremiah Crane one-on-one. Crane picked up the win off the distraction, and it seems like the Puma-Mil rivalry is back on. Puma's bow towards Vampiro indicates that they're on the same page now, which makes for a fearsome pair.

  • Who keeps sending Sexy Star these spiders? We don't know for sure yet, but she's gone ahead and requested a match against Mariposa next week to take out her frustrations. Also, Ricky Mandel being a Johnny Mundo superfan just makes sense.

  • Texano gets a famous offer. He may have lost the best-of-five series to the Machine, but all is not lost (yet) for the blue-collar brawler. He's been approached by Famous B and the Beautiful Brenda with an offer to, well, make him "famous". Famous B seems like he's been reading the internet's opinion on Texano, because what he said was absolutely perfect. This would be an intriguing pair, as it would mean that Texano would be affiliated with current client Dr. Wagner Jr.. That's hilarious considering how these two have been in a rivalry over at AAA.

  • Angelico, we barely knew ye. It's only his second match back, and he dislocated his elbow in a losing effort against the Worldwide Underground (side note: PJ Black has competed in the last three episodes, and has been the silent MVP so far). It's a real shame as it seems he was set up for a nice reunion with Son of Havoc as they took on the Worldwide Underground. Once again, Son of Havoc is the only one from the dysfunctional trio left standing in the Temple.


Overall Verdict: This was an okay episode boosted by a great main event between Cage and Texano. It's not the best there is this season, but it's still worth watching if only to see Cage look absolutely human and take a decent amount of punishment. That's not something you see every day. C
