We open on a casket, containing the body of the late Dario Cueto. Panning back, Agent Winter is standing beside an older man with long, scraggly grey hair who is soon introduced as Antonio Cueto, the elderly father of our late Lucha Underground owner. It quickly becomes apparent that they are the only two individuals in attendance at this funeral.
Antonio is a decaying old man, stumbling forward on an even older wooden crutch, uttering forth words with the gravelly rumble of a lifelong chain smoker. One of his eyes is almost completely clouded over. This is likely not the sort of man you would enjoy having a cup of coffee with.
Agent Winter informs Antonio that he has inherited the rights to the Lucha Underground promotion and its talent, and he is to resume full control of all daily operations. However, with the original Temple in Boyle Heights now under investigation they will no longer have access to the building. The old man reveals that he has acquired the perfect property, an abandoned warehouse that was once used for cold storage; an inconspicuous place.
Winter reminds him that the wrestling promotion is just a front, and to remember what’s really important. Forgetting that lesson is exactly what got Dario murdered. Before he leaves, the agent reveals that he knows it was Antonio who placed the hit on his own son’s life…
OUR NEW TEMPLE
We cut to a wrestling ring containing only a portrait of Dario Cueto. A moment of silence is issued to pay respect, but Antonio Cueto hobbles out through the crowd and cuts the ceremony short. He knocks over the portrait with his cane and declares himself the new owner and operator of Lucha Underground, putting everyone on notice that he is not the ineffectual and weak leader that his son no doubt was.
El Jefe reveals that Pentagon Dark will defend the Lucha Underground Championship tonight, and that more than likely we will leave with a brand new champion. Since we are christening a new Temple, under a new reign of power, it’s only fitting that night one feature… THE RETURN OF AZTEC WARFARE!
