Let us do this.
Mr. Cisco vs. Cortez Castro vs. Joey Ryan
They were the first team eliminated in the finals of the trios tournament, so they were made to have a match together for one of the ancient Aztec medallions. The match was short and Ryan won with a roll up.

Ivelisse & Son of Havoc & Johnny Mundo vs. Prince Puma & Dragon Azteca Jr. & Rey Mysterio
Angelico is hurt, so Mundo was inserted as a partner for the former champions getting a rematch for the titles.
It was a good match, with Puma, Azteca Jr., Mysterio coming away with the win after some shenanigans involving Taya, who blamed Ivelisse for the loss.

After the match, Taya attacked Ivelisse while Mundo looked on smiling.
Matanza vs. Mil Muertes
This was for the Lucha Underground championship. It's the LU version of a casket match. You win by putting your opponent in the coffin and slamming it shut. They had a big ceremony complete with extras in make up putting wreaths on the coffin.
Catrina used a chair on Matanza early. He grabbed her up and Muertes speared him. Then he dragged the coffin over and they were straight up using it as a weapon. That included Mil using one hand to take the coffin into the ring.

They did a great spot where Matanza had Muertes in the coffin but couldn't quite shut it all the way when suddenly Mil's hand shot up through the lid of the casket and slammed Matanza into it.
Catrina took out Dario but Matanza was there to knock her out and put her in a coffin. Matt Striker called it like she was buried alive.
After all the destruction, that left just one coffin that wasn't beat to pieces. Muertes put Matanza in but couldn't close it. Mil tried to punch him until he was out but the Monster countered and got out before delivering a powerbomb on top of the coffin. Not long after, he put Mil in and closed the lid to retain the title.
Matanza def. Muertes
Dario opened the coffin Catrina was in and she wasn't there. He was shocked. The faces of death came out to retrieve the coffin with Muertes in it. It was revealed that one of them was King Cuerno.
