4. Cage def. Texano, Jr..
After the usual vidpack, we find Prince Puma training with Vampiro, whom Puma acknowledges is his new master.
1. Mil Muertes (w/Catrina) vs. Jeremiah Crane.
This should've gone longer, but there was a reason. Just like there was a reason Muertes went to the Reaper's Trident (spear) through the ropes too early. Catrina gets on the apron, and what seems like a tactical error leads to Puma showing up and whacking Muertes with a kendo stick, freeing Crane from the Flatliner. Crane with a pump kick for the upset.
Winner: Jeremiah Crane.
Crane left, and Puma beat on Muertes some more before leaving.
Backstage, we find Ricky Mandel, now with dark hair and rocking a bandana on his head a la Johnny Mundo, giving Sexy Star a present, which turns out to be another spider.......
Texano Jr. is working out when he's interrupted by Famous B & Brenda. Famous wants to add Texano to his stable. Please. Texano appears to turn him down......
2. Jack Evans & P. J. Black vs. Angelico & Son of Havoc.
Air traffic control should be on full alert for this one, as all four can fly. Unfortunately, the injury prone Angelico appears to dislocate his elbow in his first match back. That leaves Havoc all alone to eat a corkscrew 630 from Evans.
Winners: Jack Evans & P. J. Black.
Sexy meets with Dario Cueto, demanding Mariposa. Despite the butterfly babe's denials, Sexy still thinks she's responsible for the spiders. Mariposa vs. Sexy will be rematched next week on the undercard of Mundo defending the title vs. Mack.
3. Cage vs. Texano, Jr..
Match 4 of the best-of-5 series. Dario had that box in his office when Sexy burst in, so apparently this will end. A turnbuckle cover is knocked off accidentally, and ends up working in Texano's favor, as he slides out and knocks Cage's head into the exposed metal. One powerbomb later, and the series is tied.
Winner: Texano, Jr..
Dario is digging this so much that the 5th and deciding match is next.
4. Cage vs. Texano, Jr..
Cage, bloodied but unbowed, finally gets his energy back, and rallies to get even. The bullrope comes into play again, and this time it works against Texano, as Cage whips him with it before finishing him with the Steiner Screwdriver.
Dario is back, and calls Cage into the office, cryptically saying that this is too much for the fans to comprehend. What's in the box? A metal gauntlet bursting with electric energy, the power of a god. Cage just made a deal with the devil......
