Sorry this is late being written. Results first, "backstage stuff" later.
1. Joey Ryan vs. Mr. Cisco vs. Cortez Castro.
After failing to win the trios titles, Ryan & the Crew are in a triple threat 1-fall for the last Aztec medallion. The Gift of the Gods title will be on the line next week. Huh? Thought all 7 had been claimed. Way too short, and too cheap, as in Ryan being lazy and sneaking in to collect a leverage aided pin.
Winner: Joey Ryan.
2. LU trios titles: Rey Mysterio, Jr., Dragon Azteca, Jr., & Prince Puma vs. Ivelisse, Son of Havoc, & Johnny Mundo (w/Taya).
They'd like you to think Dario Cueto, with his penchant for putting together dysfunctional teams, might've been a fan of Paul Heyman and/or ECW. They certainly could use Heyman's genius, though. This was really to set up a program between the women, as Ivey repeatedly kept Taya from interfering with the champs. A stray flash kick from Mundo KO'd Ivey by mistake, but it ultimately led to Son of Havoc being pinned after a 630 senton splash from Prince Puma.
Winners: Rey Mysterio, Jr., Dragon Azteca, Jr., & Prince Puma.
Post-match, as the champs leave, Taya beats down Ivey to start their program.
3. LU title: Matanza Cueto (w/Dario) vs. Mil Muertes (w/Catrina).
4 caskets are at ringside, as the idea is to eliminate either the Cueto "brothers" or Mil & Catrina. Easier said than done. Another brawl, and more of the same from Catrina & Dario. Catrina is placed in a coffin, but meanwhile, two of the other caskets have been destroyed, forcing Matanza to use the one remaining coffin to lock up Mil after the Wrath of the Gods (rewind powerslam).
Winner: Matanza Cueto.
Post-match, Dario discovers that Catrina is gone. Matt Striker & Vampiro see this for the first time, leaving them to wonder just what Catrina is......!
Other stuff: The show was bracketed with the corrupt city councilman (a very unrecognizable Lorenzo Lamas), who first meets with Dario at a bar. Dario pays him some money. Seems Councilman Lamas works for someone even more sinister, and all we see is a jawline of a man dragging on a cigarette. Hmmm.
Catrina again brings up having lived for nearly 200 years, and tries to pep up Mil, addressing him by his "real name", Pasqual Mendoza. The couple leave, and we find King Cuerno has been hiding within the chamber. He would also be one of the pallbearers following the casket match.
