Alright, folks, let's Lucha!
Killshot vs. Dante Fox vs. Mariposa vs. Jeremiah Crane in a Battle of the Bulls match
There’s a lot of quick action early on, with everyone getting some of their stuff in. Dante Fox hits a series of suicide dives and then finds himself in the ring against Mariposa.
She drop kicks him and then delivers a crossbody to Killshot on the floor. Crane gets in the ring and goes at Fox, ending with a big suicide drive on Fox after he kicks him to the floor. Then he follows up with a suicide dive. Killshot gets a tope con girlo of his own. But when he goes back to the top rope, Crane just throws a chair in his face. That’ll get it done.
But one chair isn’t enough. He tosses a ton of chairs into the ring. He then sets up the chairs so 3 are facing another 3 and then puts the 7th on top of it. (Unfortunately, one fell.) Crane is about to superplex Killshot when Fox joins him. This leads to Mariposa sliding in and a HUGE Tower of Doom on the chairs!
Now Mariposa is throwing chairs at all the downed men. Over and over and over again!
Crane is back up and hits her with a kick. He sets up for something but gets a kick by Fox, who gets a kick by Killshot, who gets a kick... forget it! Everyone is just kicking everyone (except Mariposa who is still downed in the corner.)
Fox sets up a chair in the corner and turns his attention to Killshot. He goes to toss Killshot head first into the chair but he reverses. Killshot follows up with a reverse rana but Crane breaks it up and grabs a chair. He sets it up mid ring. He grabs Killshot for a half and half suplex but it’s reverse. Reversed again into a DVD on Killshot. Kick out but immediately into a leg submission! Mariposa tries to break it up but she gets locked into the hold as well. She reverses it into a near fall.
Now Mariposa sets up the chair in the ring and goes for the Butterfly Effect to Killshot... on the chair! 1-2... broken by Fox!
Mariposa is going at Fox with chops. But when she hits the ropes, he shoves Fox out of the way and hits mariposa with a huge kick. Now Fox and Crane go back and forth.
Dante goes for the 450 but Crane puts his knees up to block it and hits his double arm pile driver Cranial Contusion for the 1-2-3.
Jeremiah Crane advances in the Battle of the Bulls
After the match, Fox is down in the ring and Killshot stalks him. It looks like he’s going to extend his hand but instead it’s a leaping kick to the head! Then a double stomp from the top!
Backstage, Taya is filming PJ Black and Jack Evans but they don’t seem to be too good at it. Johnny rolls in he asks them why they aren’t preparing for their match tonight. He says if they don’t win, they’ll have to turn in their sweet bandanas and find a new crew.
Sexy Star is standing behind a fence. Then she’s shadow boxing in a ring, likely training for her title rematch. After he work out, she goes into the locker room, shows into her locker to grab her stuff and gets either scared or angry when she sees a big spider.
Kobra Moon vs. Drago
Things are even early on until Drago his a big drop kick. This puts Drago on the offensive with a series of kicks.He’s taking his time, in clear control of the match.
However when he goes up top, another man in a similar mask attacks Drago, causing a DQ. He takes it to Drago, finishing with a Pop Up Powerbomb.
Drago wins via DQ
Fenix and Aerostar run down to make the save for their trios champion partner. Aerostar hits a big DDT as Kobra summons another HUGE dude in a snake mask. He dispatches Fenix and Aerostar quite easily. The big snake man hits a double chokeslam on them. The big guy delivers a tombstone piledriver to Drago.
They take Drago with them as they leave.
Mariposa is walking back stage when she comes face to face with her old rival Sexy Star. Sexy Star walks past when Mariposa grabs her hair. This turns into a fight that Sexy wins when she grabs Mariposa by the neck. She accuses Mariposa of leaving the spider in her locker but Mariposa denies it. Sexy then punches through the wall next to Mariposa’s head.
PJ Black vs. Jack Evans vs. Angelico vs. Son of Havoc in the final Battle of the Bulls match
Early on, the good guys toss the Worldwide Underground (WWU) guys out of the ring. The the former Trios champ hook up briefly but then decide to dive out on the WWU guys.
They plays as a tornado tag early on. Angelico finds himself fighting back against both WU guys. He one of them in a firemans as Son of Havoc goes up and stomps on the the man that Angelico has on his shoulders down onto the other WU guy.
No Havoc and Angelico start fighting each other. WU slide back in and together Havoc out of the ring. After doing some poses, they start working over Angelico. He is able to dodge and move to deliver a big kick to the head of PJ and then to Evans for a nearfall.
Angelico goes for the Fall of the Angels on the Evans but he fights out and hits his bridging cover. Havoc flies in and stomps Evans and then starts working PJ. PJ gets Havoc in the Electric Chair for the Dooms Day Device but somehow Havoc slides out and the WWU guys hit each other.
Eventually all for men enter the corner which looks to be another Tower of Doom. Instead Havoc knocks PJ off, his him with a suicide dive, and then Angelico suplexes Evans onto Son of Havoc and Black on the floor!
Angelico goes up to the top rope but Evans just pushes him onto the floor. However Black soon disposes of Son of Havoc, gets on his back, and tells Jack to pin him. As Jack does, Black rolls him up for the 1-2-3!
PJ Black advances to the finals
PJ Black goes for a handshake. Jack actually accepts but then Black pulls it back and laughs.
Dragon Azteca comes into Rey Mysterio’s room and tells him the monster came for him. He helps Rey to sit up. Mysterio blames himself for it but the attack from Matanza made El Dragon Azteca understand his destiny.
Rey tells him it’s not a fight he can win. Azteca says it’s not a fight he is planning on winning Rey says it’s not Dragon’s battle but his. He tells Rey that the days of telling him what to do are over. Now he plans on ending Matanza’s life.
