Continue reading to find out the results in this week’s episode.
We start with a recap of the events that have occurred in the temple. We see from last season where Dario Cueto murdered Mr.Sisco after he found out that he was a spy for the police. We return to this season where Joey Ryan tells Dario that Cortez Castro is a cop. That leads to Dario beginning his revenge on Castro by putting him in a match against Pentagon Dark. Pentagon defeats Castro and after the match breaks his arm. Dario is pleased with what has happened to Castro.
We then cut to another recap from a few weeks ago where Chavo Guererro Jr. attacked Dragon Azteca Jr. in the locker room. Rey Mysterio Jr. finds Azteca on the ground unconscious and realizes it was Chavo who did this. We then cut to last week where Rey comes in to Dario’s office and tells Dario he wants a match against Chavo, and whoever loses leaves the temple forever.
The show starts with Dario and his Dial of Doom. Before the match starts Dario mentions that Matanza will defend his title in Aztec Warfare in two weeks as the number one entrant. Dario says he will spin the dial one last time before Matanza has to defend his title at Aztec Warfare.
Dario spins the dial, and it lands on “Dario’s Choice.” He now gets to pick who will fight Matanza tonight for the Lucha Underground title. Dario announces that Cortez Castro is his choice.

Matanza goes after Castro, but Castro gets out of the way and tries to attack Matanza with the good arm. Castro goes for a kick, but Matanza catches leg and headbutts his broken arm. Matanza starts to stomp on Castro’s arm, and we can hear Castro scream in agony. Matanza breaks Castro’s cast and arm again. Matanza takes off the cast, and charges at Castro.

After the match, Dario enters the ring, and apologizes to Castro for not knowing he wasn’t able to compete. Dario then tells Castro to get some rest “under covers,” and calls him a rat.
We come back from commercial break where we see Dario in his office with Joey Ryan laughing about what just happened to Castro. Ryan leaves and we see Son of Havoc enter with Mascarita Sagrada. Havoc tells Dario that Mascarita wants Famous B one on one in a match. Dario says that Famous B is now pretty much retired, but Dario makes Havoc an offer. If Havoc defeats Dr. Wagner Jr. tonight, he will give Mascarita a match with Famous B. He will also let Havoc choose the stipulation of the match. If Wagner wins, Mascarita still gets his match, but Wagner gets to pick the stipulation. They agree.
We cut back to the ring where Prince Puma is about to speak. He mentions that he beat Mil Muertes two weeks ago, but beating him wasn’t enough. Puma says he hasn’t forgotten that Mil put his mentor Konnan in a coffin. Puma says he will not stop until he does the same to Mil. Puma challenges Mil to a Grave Consequences match, which is pretty much a casket match.
We see Catrina come out, and she says that Mil accepts. Mil comes from behind, and attacks Puma. Puma starts to fight back, and gains the upperhand. Puma stands tall tonight.

We see another White Rabbit video package. We see the man in the white suit who we saw last week. He says that the rabbit told him to go to the temple, but did not tell him what he would find. He says the rabbit told him to open his eyes, and he will see his destiny. We then see two men appear next to the man in the white suit.
