4. Johnny Mundo def. Cage.
The opening montage sets up tonight's double main event.
1. Jack Evans vs. P. J. Black.
Black's still looking for his first win since coming in. Evans, arrogant and cocky after beating Drago two weeks ago, takes the mic from Melissa Santos and does his own introduction. Ken Anderson he ain't. Drago does show up near the end, but an attempt to spit "dragon fire" mist, if you will, misfires, as it hits Black instead, and Evans scores with an O'Connor roll and covered bridge.
Winner: Jack Evans.
2. Non-title: King Cuerno vs. Killshot.
Both men get the jobber entrance for some reason. Matt Striker & Vampiro talk about how Killshot has improved, but he, too, has yet to win since the start of the new season. Cuerno teased the tombstone, but couldn't connect. He did hit Thrill of the Hunt, though, and that was enough.
Winner: King Cuerno.
Cuerno teases the Thrill of the Kill (cradle tombstone), but Fenix makes the save post-match.
Famous B, another non-winner, appears in a video playing a used car salesman. Waste of space. Pentagon, Jr. confronts Catrina, demanding a rematch with Prince Puma. He'll get that next week, after teasing breaking Catrina's arm. She warns, though, that he's made an enemy in Mil Muertes.
3. Gauntlet match: Texano, Jr. vs. Chavo Guerrero, Jr. & the Crew.
Texano gets through the Crew in quick succession. Cisco jobbed in about 10 seconds after a superkick. Cortez Castro made a good accounting of himself before falling to a pop-up powerbomb. But Chavo couldn't win this on his own. The Crew remained at ringside, which is illegal elsewhere. Cortez stole the bullrope, and used it to scoop Texano's leg out from under him, enabling Guerrero to cheat to win.
Winner (?): Chavo Guerrero, Jr..
The feud will continue, but it should've ended here.
Nearly 400 miles from Boyle Heights, Dario Cueto explains to Black Lotus why he is so into violence. Seems Matanza ended up hurting an abusive parent......
4. Johnny Mundo vs. Cage.
Good match, tainted by a lame finish. Taiya Valkyrie, whom Vampiro recognizes as from Mexico, debuts as Mundo's new valet, showing up late in the match. She gets a pipe from somewhere, and while she has the ref's attention, Mundo, who had taken a beating, clocks Cage upside the head for another tainted win. This was the same way Mundo's ex, Melina, made her debut at the end of season 1, but she was one and done.
Winner: Johnny Mundo.
We find out that Cuerno, while he wants Muertes, will put up the Gift of the Gods title next week in a ladder match vs. Fenix.
