1. The Mack def. Marty Martinez.
2. Sinestro de la Muerte def. King Cuerno due to interference from Catrina.
3. Cage def. Mascarita Sagrada.
4. Sexy Star def. Mariposa.
We open with the video montage focusing on storylines leading to this week's card. Meanwhile, Dario Cueto is repairing his roof when Catrina slinks in. Long story short, Mil Muertes will get another shot at Matanza next week in a "Graver Consequences" match. Meaning, we could see Catrina end up in a coffin along with Mil....
All of this week's matches will settle the issue of the Aztec Medallions. Or will they?
1. Marty Martinez vs. The Mack.
Once again, Marty is flapping his arms behind Melissa Santos, creeping her out. She can't leave the ring fast enough. Way too short, and the reason for that would be in the main event. Martinez runs out of gas too soon, and Mack makes him pay for it with a stunner and a TKO.
Winner: The Mack.
Dario meets with Sexy Star. She gets Mariposa, Marty's sister, in the main event, a No Mas (I Quit) match, for the last medallion.
Catrina is at odds with King Cuerno, who faces Sinestro de la Muerte next. Cuerno says that should Muertes regain the title, he's coming for Mil......
2. Sinestro de la Muerte (w/Catrina) vs. King Cuerno.
Too short, almost a squash, and for the wrong reason. The idea was to get Sinestro over as a single, but this wasn't the way to do it. He needed illegal help from Catrina, who used the stone of death to KO Cuerno, setting up a springboard guillotine legdrop. Catrina just made a very dangerous enemy. Face turn for Cuerno?
Winner (though he shouldn't be): Sinestro de la Muerte.
Chavo Guerrero, Jr. is upset that he wasn't included in the series of matches for the medallions. So Dario tells him he wasn't deserving of the honor. Ohhh boy.......
Meanwhile, Famous B has signed Mascarita Sagrada as a client, and has conned a previous medallion winner to face Sagrada. Ummmm, who could that be?
3. Mascarita Sagrada (w/Famous B & Beautiful Brenda) vs. Cage.
Squash #2. The man-machine doesn't even bother using Weapon X or any of his other signatures, showing some compassion for Sagrada. A mere fallaway slam ends it, but as Cage celebrates, Chavo sneaks in and steals the medallion. Famous B stooges off Chavo, and the chase is on.
4. Sexy Star vs. Mariposa.
Hopefully, WWE's Uncreative team was watching this one and taking notes, because now they've got something to shoot for at Extreme Rules in May 22 when Charlotte has to defend her title vs. Natalya in a rematch (see the Reaction Zone for why). Energized by a pep talk earlier from Dario, Sexy takes the fight to Mariposa, and, as the guys are often wont to do, they take the fight out of the ring and up into the bleachers and the roof of Dario's office. Vampiro sounds scared for Sexy, and why not?
Unfortunately, Marty Martinez returns and butts in where he doesn't belong, though this is NO-DQ. So of course the Mack returns and gives Martinez another beatdown. Another stunner finishes Marty. I have to believe this was taped before the Mack-Martinez match that led off the show. Mariposa teases the Butterfly Effect, but Sexy avoids that. After the last stunner to Martinez, Mariposa is left all alone again with her foe, and Sexy locks in a cross-armbreaker. Mariposa is forced to give up and say the two words made famous by Roberto Duran more than 30 years ago (which, surprisingly, wasn't brought up by Matt Striker). "No Mas!"
Winner: Sexy Star.
Sexy, following Dario's advice, reapplies the cross-armbreaker after, then releases and bum-rushes Mariposa from the ring. She & Mack embrace after as we fade.
