This week on Lucha Underground, the finals were set for Dario Cueto's "Battle of the Bulls" tournament. The idea here is that the company needs to crown a new contender for the Lucha Underground championship. The tournament format is based on an annually held tournament by Lucha Underground's partner company in Mexico, AAA Lucha Libre.

Lucha Underground's version of the Rey de Reyes

The tournament in Mexico follows a similar format, with opening rounds consisting of 4-way matches, with each winner advancing to a final 4-way elimination match. Unlike in AAA however, Dario Cueto has guaranteed the winner will be receiving a Lucha Underground championship opportunity.

While the winning luchador doesn't get a shot at the title in Mexico, they do receive a big shiny sword as a trophy. They almost always receive high-profile matches afterwards, however. The 2016 winner of the AAA version of the tournament was Pentagon Jr, who now goes by the name Pentagon Dark in Lucha Underground.

The four qualifying matches for Dario Cueto's version of the tournament started last week and concluded Wednesday night. Cage, the Mack, Jeremiah Crane and PJ Black (Justin Gabriel from WWE) will wrestle in the finals of the inaugural tournament.

PJ Black may have qualified for the finals in the most innovative way, as he pinned his own teammate to advance. Both Jack Evans and PJ Black from the World Wide Underground were in the final 4-way semi-final match, along with Son of Havoc and Angelico (Evan's partner in AAA).

With both Havoc and Angelico on the outside, Black told Evans to pin him so a member of their team could advance, only he wrapped Evans into a schoolboy and got the pin for himself instead.

Who will be the next Lucha Underground champion?

Whoever wins the "Battle of the Bulls" will face either Sexy Star or Johnny Mundo for the championship.

They are set to face each other in a steel cage to settle their feud soon. Star earned the right to a rematch with Mundo after defeating PJ Black on last week's show.

I'm not certain how many fans are clamoring for the blow-off to the Sexy Star vs Johnny Mundo program. But regardless of how well received the program is, the winner will be the one to move into a program with the winner of the "Battle of the Bulls."
