Prince Puma vs. Drago from Lucha Underground 2015

Post by TJ Hawke:

This match is for Puma’s Lucha Underground Championship. If Drogo loses though, his LU career is over. Konnan accompanied Puma to the ring.

It took a while for me to get into this one. The athleticism was impressive early on, but I only started to truly care once Drago upped the intensity at around the eight minute mark. By that point, Dragon started to work like his career was actually on the line. The finish was sadly anti-climatic though, as Hernandez ran in and gave Drago a pounce. It was not clear whom he was aiming for. Puma then reluctantly finished Drago after Konnan’s encouragement to do so. A finish in a Loser Leaves Town match should be about the person “leaving town.” That was sacrificed for future storylines. I get the reasoning behind that, but it’s not something that appeals to me in the slightest.  The match itself was fine, but it was clearly marred by the booking of the finish. (**3/4)
