1. Marty Martinez def. The Mack.
2. Cage def. Taya.
3. LU title: Mil Muertes def. Prince Puma & Pentagon, Jr., pinning both.
Getting past the usual montage of clips setting up tonight's show, we find Sexy Star in the locker room. The Mack joins her, and has to give her a pep talk to get her to be in his corner for his match with Marty Martinez......
1. The Mack vs. Marty Martinez.
The Moth is flapping his arms behind Melissa Santos, which Vampiro seems to dig. However, it starts the way every Martinez match has since he arrived last year, with Martinez on the defensive. He does try a splash off the top, and eats canvas. Mack goes up top, but that's when a masked mystery woman appears, which freaks out Sexy, and distracts Mack long enough for Martinez to recover and beel Mack off the top. Back up goes Martinez, who hits a jumping knee strike to the back to pick up his first win.
Winner: Marty Martinez.
Post-match, Martinez introduces the newcomer as his "sister", Mariposa. Sexy gets kicked down, continuing that story.
Fenix promo video. He keeps proving the doubters wrong. Sounds like the Rey Mysterio story, doesn't it?
Drago confronts Jack Evans back in the locker room. They fight, and PJ Black joins in, turning heel on Drago. They double on Drago until Aerostar returns and chases them away.
2. Cage vs. Taya.
This was supposed to be Cage's rematch vs. Johnny Mundo, but Mundo decided to be lazy and sent his new valet, Taya, to take his place. Of course, Mundo did get involved when it looked like Cage would put Taya away, but this time, Cage no sold the pipe and a couple of beer bottles. Mundo left the ring, and left Taya to eat Weapon X to end this no-DQ match.
Next week, the Disciples of Death will face Ivelisse, Son of Havoc, & Angelico, who must win or leave the temple. The dysfunction resumes.
3. Lucha Underground title: Mil Muertes (w/Catrina) vs. Prince Puma & Pentagon, Jr..
The challengers doubled on Muertes to start, then faced off once Muertes was knocked from the ring. It soon turned into a round of Can You Top This?, because after Muertes hit a plancha, he ended up eating a series of topes from the challengers. Pentagon took control, hitting a modified powerbomb for 2, then the package piledriver. The latter should've been it, but Pentagon decided he had to break Puma's arm. Muertes saved with a spear, then speared Puma, and hit the double flatliner to retain.
Winner: Mil Muertes.
Post-match, Fenix appeared in the bleachers, and cut his first promo in the temple, as he's turning in the Gift of the Gods title, which he just regained, to get the next shot at Muertes. Looks like Catrina could lose all the gold next week!
