Commentary: Matt Striker & Vampiro
Reported By: Jacob Gilbert
1. Killshot & Marty Martinez went to a double countout.
2. Aerostar & Drago def. Jack Evans & PJ Black when Drago pinned Evans.
3. Johnny Mundo, Taya, Ivelisse, King Cuerno, Fenix, & Pentagon, Jr. def. Son of Havoc, Rey Mysterio, The Mack, Sexy Star, Texano, & Prince Puma when Mundo pinned Puma.
After the usual video preview, we find Black Lotus in Dario Cueto's office. While she's kept Dragon Azteca, Jr. from going after Matanza, she warns Dario that if he's lying to her about her parents' deaths---and he is---, then her namesake triad will come after him. Uh-oh.
1. Killshot vs. Marty Martinez.
Last time, Killshot defeated Martinez, but the psychomoth stole the dog tags to continue the issue. I'm sorry, but Marty is not in Killshot's class. They brawled, and were counted out. Just as it seemed Killshot would get his property back, Marty steals them back, likely to set up a stip match at Ultima Lucha Dos, set for July 6.
Consider the case of Francisco Garza, alias Mr. Cisco. His partner-in-crime, he discovered two weeks ago, is an undercover cop, and now Officer Reyes wants him to wear a wire so they can get evidence on Dario. At first, Cisco doesn't want to, but when Capt. Vasquez hints that Dario may be the "linchpin to the end of days", his tune changes......
[This creeps me out more than Marty hassling Melissa Santos does.]
2. Nunchuks match: Jack Evans & PJ Black vs. Aerostar & Drago.
This is about payback for past sins. Evans gets to the 'chuks first, but ultimately, in the course of this brawl, Drago rolls him up with the tail of the dragon.
Winners: Aerostar & Drago.
3. Six For Survival Match: Son of Havoc, Rey Mysterio, The Mack, Sexy Star, Texano, & Prince Puma vs. Johnny Mundo, Taya, Ivelisse, King Cuerno, Fenix, and Chavo Guerrero, Jr..
Pre-match, Pentagon, Jr. wheels out to the ring on a motorized wheelchair. He cuts a promo claiming Chavo was the only one who supported him during his rehab, but then turns on Chavo and "breaks his arm", all to replace Chavo in the match. Chavo must be injured again for real. Dario lets Pentagon have his way, and we're off. Very weird to see Ivey and Son of Havoc on opposite sides after 2 trios title runs, but they should be building something between Ivey and Taya. Winning team will be put into a 6-pack elimination match to determine who faces Matanza on July 6.
Way too much to talk about. It ends when Mundo blocks an attempted 630 senton by Puma by vaulting Mysterio into Puma, crotching the latter. Mundo hops up top, and hits the C4 (Spanish Fly) to end it.
Winners: Johnny Mundo, Taya, Ivelisse, King Cuerno, Fenix, & Pentagon, Jr..
Meanwhile, we close by finding Catrina has found Mil Muertes, and wakes him up. Be very afraid, Matanza, and everyone else.
