After a vidpack setting up tonight's show, we find Johnny Mundo, Cage, & Taya in Dario Cueto's office. He's put them together for the trios tournament. Seeing as how the current champs, Son of Havoc, Ivelisse, & Angelico didn't get along going into the tournament, but won the thing, well.....!
1. Killshot vs. Argenis.
Picking up from his interview last week, Killshot is rocking a camo jacket and dog tags. Argenis returned at Aztec Warfare last month, but this is his first singles match since. Decent opener, nothing special, other than to get Killshot over as a singles wrestler, and a likely challenger to Matanza. Matt Striker, predictably, gets in some military references before Killshot finishes off Argenis with the One Winged Angel, or whatever they'll call it in LU.
Dragon Azteca, Jr. approaches Dario's office, but it turns out that Black Lotus is really a double agent who joined up with Cueto to get close to him in order to bring him down. Sounds like she & the Crew should get together.
Meanwhile, Dario welcomes Daga as the newest member of the roster. His first match is against Texano, Jr.-----next.
2. Daga vs. Texano, Jr..
Matt & Vampiro bring up that these two were tag team partners in Mexico at one time, but went their separate ways. Daga serves up a slap to start, which only angers Texano. Competitive match, better than the opener, but any hope for an upset goes out the door, largely because the 7 medallions that form the Gift of the Gods title are up for grabs again, now that Fenix turned in the belt. Texano hit a superkick, but Daga answered with a jumping heel kick for 2. Lax cover would cost him, and cost him dearly. Texano with the sitout powerbomb, and that is it.
Winner: Texano, Jr.
Catrina reveals that the Disciples of Death have entered the trios tournament in an effort to win back the titles, while Mil Muertes will be the next challenger for Matanza next week.
3. Trios tournament, 1st round: Johnny Mundo, Taya, & Cage vs. Rey Mysterio, Dragon Azteca, Jr., & Prince Puma.
Rey is rocking red tonight, so of course fellow comics geek Striker makes a couple of references to The Flash. Dragon & Cage start. Mundo tags himself in after a couple of minutes, but it seems that Taya is never tagged in legally. She always jumps in when Johnny's in. Actually, she was tagged in once, but then tagged out to Cage, which was a shock. They said it was a star-making match for both Dragon and Taya, but I disagree. Taya really showed me more in her singles match vs. Cage. Predictably, Cage & Mundo have a falling out after a Flying Chuck misfires and hits Cage, who answers with a discus lariat. That leaves Mundo to eat the 630 senton from Puma.
Winners: Rey Mysterio, Dragon Azteca, Jr., & Prince Puma.
Dario gives Matanza a pep talk for next week. Ya wonder if Matanza has some feelings after all, hiding resentment toward his brother.......
