1. Dr. Wagner, Jr. & Famous B "defeated" Mascarita Sagrada & Son of Havoc when Famous B "pinned" Sagrada using a stethoscope.

3. Pentagon Dark def. Rey Mysterio, Jr. & Chavo Guerrero, Jr., pinning Rey.
1. Dr. Wagner, Jr. & Famous B (w/Brenda) vs. Mascarita Sagrada & Son of Havoc.
Part of the reason Famous B became a talent agent was because he couldn't win a match. Why this jackass couldn't pull out a set of regulation tights and boots and leave his Jimmy Hart starter set wardrobe in the dressing room, I don't know. He was lazy in the ring in this one. This match was a farce right from the jump. If the veteran Wagner is being pushed toward a title match, I could understand his not losing here, but there's no sign that this will happen. Instead, Not-so-Famous pushes SOH off the top, leaving Sagrada to eat another Wagner-Driver, and Not-so-Famous tags in, then puts his stethoscope on Sagrada, and the ref counts the pin. I'm sorry, but that's wrong. I told you the guy was being lazy. He didn't directly pin Sagrada, so this doesn't count.
Winners (NOT!): Dr. Wagner, Jr. & Famous B.
2. Gift of the Gods title: Sexy Star vs. Jack Evans.
Evans, ever brash and arrogant, cut a promo on Sexy pre-match, claiming he'd end her career. Not so fast. When the chips were down, PJ Black & Johnny Mundo came down and interfered. That brought the trios champs, Aerostar, Drago, & Fenix, to even the sides. Sexy took Black's kendo stick and used it on Evans behind the ref's back with Fenix running interference for her. One cradle neckbreaker later, and Sexy retains.
Winner: Sexy Star.
At the top of the evening, Chavo Guerrero, Jr. ambushed El Dragon Azteca, Jr., leveling him with several chair shots. This was the result of Rey Mysterio, Jr.'s actions in their match two weeks ago. Chavo wants Pentagon Dark as much as Azteca does, but this is not how you go about it. No sooner has Dario Cueto agreed to insert Chavo as Azteca's replacement, than Rey rats out his long-time frenemy, making it a 3-way dance. Unfortunately, it's one fall.
3. Pentagon Dark vs. Chavo Guerrero, Jr. vs. Rey Mysterio, Jr..
If Dario had thought this through, this would've been an elimination match. One fall never solves anything among three or more men (or women). Chavo & Rey know that, and Chavo is also an executive producer. Let's skip to the end. Chavo cuts off Rey on the top, and that allows Pentagon to hit the package piledriver and get the win right back from Rey.
Winner: Pentagon Dark.
Pentagon leaves, and Chavo picks the bones. More chair shots, and an angle reprised from WWE from about 10 years or so ago. Rey is left lying as we fade to black.
