1. Cage def. Johnny Mundo.
2. LU trios tag titles: Rey Mysterio, Jr., Dragon Azteca, Jr., & Prince Puma def. Jack Evans, P. J. Black, & Fenix, The Crew & Joey Ryan, and Ivelisse & Son of Havoc to win the titles.
Only 2 matches on the card, and that's all that matters.
1. Cage vs. Johnny Mundo (w/Taya).
Taya stuck her nose where it didn't concern her too often, and it finally cost her. Should've been ejected before the match began. That's how I'd book it, quite frankly. She supplied Mundo with a kendo stick and a chair, then climbed into the cage herself, and decided they needed to handcuff Cage so they could escape. That backfired, as Cage handcuffed Taya, then hit a Michinoku Driver on Mundo on the chair to end it.
2. LU trios title: Ivelisse & Son of Havoc vs. The Crew & Joey Ryan, Jack Evans, P. J. Black, & Fenix, and Rey Mysterio, Jr., Dragon Azteca, Jr., & Prince Puma.
Notice that Angelico's name is not listed. Dario Cueto came out before the introductions could be made and said that Angelico had met with an accident. The timing is coincidental, since Angelico injured his elbow at tapings last weekend.
You knew that Ryan & the Crew were destined to fail, and Ryan's ego again got in the way. Cortez Castro had Ivelisse primed for elimination, but Ryan, wanting retribution after he got slapped, wanted back in. Cortez blew him off, and was rolled up for a pin.
Ryan & the Crew are eliminated.
The numbers would catch up with the champs. Ivey hit Code Red on Evans, but Black, with the ref's attention diverted, superkicked Ivey, and Evans countered into a sunset flip.
Ivelisse & Son of Havoc are eliminated, ensuring new champions would be crowned.
Evans started barking orders at Black & Fenix, wanting them to hold Dragon Azteca for a corner charge. Unfortunately, telegraphing his intentions cost Evans dearly, as Azteca escaped and tagged in Mysterio. Next thing you know, Fenix & Black were taken out with stereo topes after Evans ate a 619, and Mysterio used a split-legged moonsault to win the match and the titles!
Winners & new champs: Rey Mysterio, Jr., Dragon Azteca, Jr., & Prince Puma.
In a pre-recorded segment, Vampiro is trying to help Pentagon, Jr., with his rehab, included some hot oil. It doesn't work.....
