Boyle Heights, California
Inside the dirty and sleazy walls of The Temple, the ominous Hispanic chanting was heard down one of the unlit and grimy hallways; at the end of that hallway was one of the most dangerous competitors on the Lucha Underground roster, Pentagon Jr. The masked man was clad in his traditional garb of the skull-like mask with the sleeveless black and white top with black tights; currently the luchador was praying to his ‘master’ who Pentagon had been trying to appease by breaking the arms of his opponents.
A thick British accent was heard off-screen as a young man with a good looking face, ripped and defined body and short, cropped, almost military style hair and he wore more casual attire of a black leather jacket with the slogan ‘Dojo Kai, Nunca Muere, Cero Miedo’ (Dojo Kai, Never Dies, Zero Fear) on the back in white lettering; the latter phrase being the same phrase Pentagon used, which hinted of a history between the two. The crew-cut sporting young man also had black jeans on and the leather jacket in question was open to show a black t-shirt with the number ‘0’ and underneath the letter ‘Miedo’; which translated to English as ‘Zero Fear’. The Englishman smiled and slapped Pentagon on the back in a friendly fashion before kneeling down next to the clearly irritated masked man, who asked the young Englishman in his native tongue.
“¿Qué estás haciendo aquí?” (What are you doing here?)
“He oído que usted estaba haciendo lo que mejor sabe hacer.” (I heard you were doing what you do best) The young man responded in Spanish, which made it clear that he knew Pentagon and obviously had a connection to the masked man before the Englishman ran a hand through his short cropped hair and switched to English and asked.
“Still praying to our master eh? I thought you would’ve stopped that BS by now” The Englishman shrugged, which caused Pentagon to shoot the unmasked Brit a glare from behind his mask as Pentagon before the master of the armbreaker asked his unmasked associate while still praying to his ‘master’
“Ha pasado un tiempo desde la última vez que te vi” (It’s been a while since I last saw you)
This caused the Brit to chuckle and say “You can’t keep Jack Kustom away that easily. Remember the motto that our master taught us. Dojo Kai , nunca muere, cero miedo” (Dojo Kai, Never Dies, Zero Fear) as Jack recited the motto of the dojo that he and Pentagon first crossed paths at in Japan. Pentagon chuckled menacingly at the mention of the motto of the dojo that he and Jack trained at as Jack extended his hand to Pentagon and stated “Come on mate; me and you, Dojo Kai, back together, our master’s two top students. With me joining you…we can get a hell of a lot more sacrifices and souls. What do you say Pent, for old time’s sake?”
Pentagon looked up and seemed to be complacent before he looked to the hopeful Kustom and smirked underneath his mask as he said the motto of the school with a twisted tone of arrogance and anticipation of what could be done now that he was with his old running buddy again.
“Dojo Kai, nunca muere, cero miedo”
Later on in the night
Ivelisse, one third of the Lucha Underground Trios Champions with Angelico and her former boyfriend Son Of Havoc, was getting her ring gear out of her locker, her leg may have been injured but that wasn’t going to stop the fiery Latina from showing everyone that injured leg or not, she was still the ‘Baddest Bitch In The Building’.
“I swear to god, If I ever have to hear Angelico asking if I’m okay I’m going to rip his face off!” Ivelisse mumbled to herself as she put on a deep voice to impersonate her South African partner ’Oh Ivelisse, are you sure you’re okay? Your legs still broken’ It’s like I’m freaking 5 years old!”
Suddenly as Ivelisse angrily slammed the locker door, she came face to face with Jack Kustom, who was clad in the same attire from before in his reuniting with Pentagon and he seemed amused by the glare on Ivelisse’s face. “Who in the hell are you?!” Ivelisse snapped out in her Latina temper as Jack just chuckled and responded calmly in his British accent “I’m guessing that your mother is really proud of raising such a polite and respectful young lady. You must be Ivelisse; pleasure to meet you, call me Jack Kustom” Jack smirked and extended his hand to the smaller 1/3rd of the trios champions.
Ivelisse just narrowed her eyes and puffed out her chest “What, you think you can insult me and then you want me to shake your hand? Listen up you little punk-ass! I’m the baddest bitch in this building, I don’t respect you because you’ve done nothing to earn my respect”
“Well why do Angelico and Son Of Havoc think so highly of you then Miss. Baddest-Bitch-In-The-Building? Because you seem to have been sitting on your ass letting them do all the work, surely if you don’t want to be treated like a child then don’t act like one…you know what I think?”
Jack stepped up to Ivelisse, who typically stood her ground and wouldn’t be intimidated by the newcomer from the UK to Lucha Underground as Jack smiled and tried to explain himself “Listen, maybe we got off on the wrong foot” as he snickered at his joke at Ivelisse’s expense, which only resulted in a total blank reaction from the hot-headed young woman.
“Is that supposed to be a joke?”
“Nope. Listen, I guess, I kinda, think you’re too pretty to be hanging out with a wanker in a mask and a lanky South African…you could be with someone like me; Jack Kustom, The Gifted Geordie”
Suddenly Ivelisse legitimately burst out laughing “Me? And you! That’s a good one kid” Ivelisse said in between laughs, she didn’t notice Jack’s expression take a very dark turn as the young man suddenly snatched Ivelisse right by her hair and shoved her up against the locker’s she was next to as he said lowly and with a creepily calm tone.
“Listen up darling! I strongly suggest that you show me some respect! Because me and Pentagon Jr are going to, soon enough, takeover The Temple and take those titles from you and your boy-toys”
“Go to hell you son of a bitch!” Ivelisse snapped out as she used her MMA experience to kick Jack right in the ribs causing the young man to stagger back as Ivelisse started to angrily lay into the newcomer to LU with stiff kicks “You earn my respect you punk-ass limey!”. However Ivelisse was grabbed from behind by Pentagon Jr, who grabbed the young woman by her brunette hair and vaulted the smaller Ivelisse right into the wall.
“Dojo Kai! Nunca Muere! Cero Miedo!” Both Pentagon and Jack both say the catchphrase of their dojo before throwing up the signature gesture as they looked down at Ivelisse, suddenly though, the two heels were caught off guard by Angelico and Son Of Havoc, who charged into the fray only to be met with a Trouble In Paradise style kick from Jack, who caught Son Of Havoc right in his chin while Pentagon drilled a charging Angelico with a wicked step-up enziguri right to the side of the head that sent the South African Stud down like a tonne of very handsome and charming bricks.
Jack and Pentagon chuckled at the fallen trios champions as Jack strolled up to Ivelisse and kissed her on the cheek before disgustingly spitting right in her face as the two members of Dojo Kai fist-bumped each-other before taking one last look at the downed Trios Champions. Who were groaning and trying to remember where they were as Lucha Underground cut to the next segment of programming.
