4. El Dragon Azteca, Jr. def. Chavo Guerrero, Jr..
After the usual video package highlighting the key issues on this week's program, we find Dario Cueto in the locker room with Sexy Star. The Gift of the Gods champ will team with the trios champs, Drago, Aerostar, & Fenix, vs. Worldwide Underground later. After Cueto leaves, WU team captain Johnny Mundo introduces himself, and all but issues a challenge for the Gift of the Gods title.
1. Prince Puma vs. Sinestro de la Muerte.
Protracted squash, and there's a reason for that. Puma is showing a more aggressive side, perhaps channeling the spirit of his former mentor, Konnan, who wasn't exactly an angel himself. Toward the end, Mil Muertes & Catrina come down, so Puma disses Muertes by hitting the Flatliner on Sinestro.
Winner: Prince Puma.
Puma hits a tope on Muertes post-match, but once again, Catrina leads Mil away. The fight will resume on their terms, no doubt.
Dario is now in his office, and greets Cortez Castro. Castro has no idea that Joey Ryan sold him out. We hear Melissa Santos announce Castro for the next match, so he leaves......
2. Castro vs. Pentagon Dark.
Squash. Castro got zero offense, and ate a package piledriver in about 2 minutes or less.
Winner: Pentagon Dark.
Of course Castro got his arm "broken" after. That's mild compared to what Dario plans to do to him next.......
3. Worldwide Underground vs. Sexy Star, Drago, Aerostar, & Fenix.
The heels are back on the same page after last week's failure. Based on what Johnny's been saying lately on the show, it seems to me that WU is now LU's answer to the old Evolution stable in WWE, but Johnny is no Triple H. Younger and more athletic, yes, but the charisma has dissipated to nothing. Finish sees Sexy set up Jack Evans for what appears to be a Gorybomb, but Johnny superkicks Sexy behind the ref's back, enabling Evans to counter into a backslide for the pin. Maybe Johnny should gotten the fall himself???
Winners: Worldwide Underground.
The victory seems to come at a price, as Taya was injured during the match, and that held ref Marty Elias' attention. Leave it to Mundo to use his own teammate to further his agenda.
Sinestro is killed off, as Catrina "breaks his neck", and takes his life force, passing it to Muertes. She wants to do the same eventually to Puma. Doesn't she wish......
4. El Dragon Azteca, Jr. vs. Chavo Guerrero, Jr..
Rey Mysterio, Jr. is the ref, and calls is straight down the middle, at least until Chavo, upset over what he feels is a slow count, confronts his old frenemy, and slugs him. Instead of calling for the DQ, Rey takes action, and clocks Guerrero in return. Azteca hits the West Coast Pop, and that's it.
Winner: El Dragon Azteca, Jr..
Azteca now gets his rematch with Pentagon Dark, but he's not alone in the hunt for the arm-breaker. Black Lotus plans to bring her namesake triad to the Temple, and, suddenly, Pentagon is a marked man......
