Lucha Underground‘s 7th episode of the 2nd season airs tonight.
The Lucha Underground Championship will be defended tonight in a 3-way match as Champion Mil Muertes defends against former champion Prince Puma and Pentagon Jr.
Muertes interfered during last week’s Puma vs Pentagon Jr. match, revealing that his injured arm is all healed and he is ready to compete again.
Pentagon Jr. is the one responsible for breaking that arm, so one has to wonder what kind of revenge Muertes and Catrina may have in store for Pentagon Jr.
The following was posted on the El Rey Network’s official website:
