Wow, the show opens with Six to Survive? I figured that'd be the main event. It's Johnny Mundo vs. King Cuerno vs. Ivelisse vs. Pentagon Jr. vs. Taya vs. Fenix. Winner gets Matanza at Ultima Lucha II. This is an elimination match.
The match starts with different people fighting each other at different points. Fenix and Cuerno are in the ring with the Hunter about to hit Thrill of the Hunt when... HERE COMES MIL MUERTES! AND HE'S BEATING THE HELL OUT OF CUERNO! (And his eyes are totally red.)
Johnny takes advantage to hit the End of the World and pins King Cuerno.

In the ring, Fenix won't hit Ivelisse. So obviously, she makes him pay for that. Smarten up, Fenix
Ivelisse continues to kick some ass. She delivers a kick to the head to Pentagon, but then finds herself facing the double team of Johnny and Taya. She's able to side step Johnny, who flies out of this ring, and this becomes a one on one between Ivelisse and Taya. That fight ends with Taya hitting a Northern Lights Suplex, rolling over, and stomping Ivelisse. This is enough for the pin.

Pentagon hits a nasty Shattered Dreams kick to Taya in the ring. That sounded rough. Then he follows her outside and keeps kicking her in the arse. Meanwhile, Johnny is controlling Fenix.
Johnny goes one on one with Pentagon for awhile in a nice stare down and trading blows. But then it breaks down with all four people getting this stuff in. But then Johnny and Taya are able to get control on the other two by working as a team.
Fenix and Pentago are able to fight back and Pentagon hits Taya for the elimination.

All three guys go back and forth chopping each other in the ring. It breaks down and Pentagon slides out, leaving Mundo and Fenix to go at it. While they do, Fenix flips Johnny the bird. Everyone hates Johnny.
This becomes a fight outside between Fenix and Pentagon Jr outside. Johnny finally inserts himself and for awhile he owns both of the fellow competitors. It takes a double team of Pentagon and Fenix to cover Johnny to eliminate him.
Pentagon & Fenix eliminates Johnny Mundo
These two go back and forth with some sweet submission spots. It then turns into your classic Lucha Underground back and forth exciting lucha match.
Finally, Pentagon Jr hits a jumping piledriver and follows it up with a package piledriver to win the Six to Survive match.

Dario and Matanza Cueto walk out from on top of the stands to stare down at Pentagon. Pentagon grabs a mic and says he's going break all the bones in Matanza's body.. and Dario's.
