The show starts with Dario Cueto in his office, when Sexy Star walks in. Sexy says she is not afraid of Dario or his brother, Lucha Underground Champion “The Monster” Matanza Cueto, and tells him that she wants to cash in her Gift od the Gods title for a shot at the Lucha Underground title.
Dario tells her that next week it will be her versus Matanza, but reminds her that tonight she has a match with Johhny Mundo for her Gift of the Gods title. Sexy says that this match with Mundo will be a good warm-up match for her. Dario likes her attitude, but also mentions a very important detail about her match. If her friends, Aerostar, Drago and Fenix interfere in her match, they will be banned from his temple. Sexy says she doesn’t need help and hopes Dario is ready to crown her the first ever female Lucha Underground Champion. Sexy leaves and Dario says that women don’t fare to well against his little brother.
Marty “The Moth” Martinez w/Mariposa vs Ivelisse.
This match is taking place because Ivelisse demanded it. She wants to get even with Marty after he attacked her after she defeated Mariposa a few weeks ago.
Before the match starts, Marty is being the “creepy bastard” he is known to be by creeping on Melissa Santos while she is doing the introductions. He even throws his shirt at her.
Ivelisse starts the match fast by hitting some wicked leg strikes and getting a few shots to Marty’s head. Marty isn’t affected by her offense and starts choking her. Ivelisse gets out of this choke with an armdrag. She goes to the top rope for a crossbody, but Marty catches her in mid-air. He begins to bite her side and powerslams her. He goes for the pin, but she kicks out.
Marty starts choking Ivelisse again on the ropes. The referee pulls him off of her, but while he is holding Marty back, Mariposa starts to bite Ivelisse’s face. Marty gets Ivelisse in a full nelson lock, but she reverses into a roll up and almost gets the near fall. Ivelisse follows up with a shining wizard and goes for the pin, but Marty kicks out again.

Marty recovers and takes down Jerimiah, and he and Mariposa start to beat him down. Ivelisse comes back into the ring, and takes down Mariposa. Marty and Mariposa are able to escape, but Ivelisse is not happy that Jerimiah is here. He tries to make up with her, but she isn’t having any of it. He apologizes again, and they eventually make up.
We see another white rabbit video package, but this time we see a man in a white suit with an Aztec symbol on his back. The man says he has returned to his tribe, and that he will be arriving very soon.
We then cut to Ivelisse leaving the temple in anger. Jerimiah catches up to her and asks her what is wrong. She tells him that she didn’t want him here. Jeremiah apologizes and tells Ivelisse that Dario offered him a deal to compete her and he said yes.
Jeremiah says it has always been his dream to hurt people for money. He tries to tell Ivelisse the benefits of him being here with her. Ivelisse is still not sold on the idea. Jeremiah says that it isn’t going to be the same like it was with her and Son of Havoc, Iveliesse’s ex-boyfriend. She eventually comes around with the idea, but tells him that Dario is a piece of crap. If he makes them fight each other, Ivelisse tells Jeremiah that she will kick his ass. They soon leave.
We then cut to a scene outside the temple getting into a limo. There is a man already inside the limo. The man says “his” descension is complete. Dario says soon “they” will be reunited and no one will be able to stop “them.” I am putting quotations on certain words because i do not know who Dario and the other guy are referring to.
The man asks Dario if he has chosen his host body. Dario says he has chosen two, and that either one are perfect. They are both big and strong, almost God like. The man then hands Dario a metal box. Dario says the timing of this is perfect because one of these two men will win his ultimate opportunity. We now figure out that he is talking about Cage and Texano.
