So we finally found out what the medallions that Daario has been parcelling out are for. They've essentially created a #1 contender's belt, which can be cashed in like the briefcase ... with the caveat that they need to give a week's notice to promote the match and if they hold it too long, it must be defended. An interesting and surprisingly sensical variation on the "Money in the Bank" idea.
Good wrestling as always. Fenix was going to be screwed out of the 7-person match for the belt at Ultima Lucha, but he returned and won a battle royale to reclaim his medallion and place it in the #1 contender belt. There was a screwjob ending between Munro and Texano, and a very short match between Cage and the Mack which turned into a temple-wide brawl and took out several security guards. And Prince Puma was about to speak when Mil Muertes and his goons interrupted, only to be beaten by the LU champion and Muertes hit with a 630 splash to end out the show.

I just got a chance to watch this since I was given a last minute free ticket to see Van Halen in concert on Wednesday and was recovering most of yesterday.
Yet another great show. Mack getting two straight victories over Cage is a bit odd. It seems like it would be a bigger deal if it were a rubber match at Ultima Lucha. I was expecting Dario Cueto to tell Cage his career was on the line if he couldn't defeat Mack next week.
Good to see Fenix back. I was not a fan when he first appeared but he's definitely grown on me through a series of awesome matches.
I really liked Famous B getting a chance to show off in the battle royale since he's been a jobber from his first appearance.
The highlight, however, was probably the audible laughter from audience when Dario Cueto announced you had to request your title match a week in advance and couldn't just sneak up on someone.
I was expecting Angelico, Son of Havoc, and Ivelisse to show up during the final brawl but Puma's body language was so perfect that it ended up being unnecessary.
