Notes: When Luna Mágica is the veteran leader on your team, we're all in trouble. Mima Shimoda is so thrilled to participate in the promo with Blanca, even if she only gets to make faces for most of it. Lluvia is wearing an orange tank top and trunks. It looks like they decided her top was too minimal again and she just grabbed a random workout shirt. This outfit shows off her unfortunate lower back tattoo. Your refs are Tiger Hispano and Rodolfo Ruiz.

1: Blanca/Dalis seems very rehearsed, but at least everything looks good. Luna/Seductora is also practiced, but includes Luna blowing a bottom rope springboard. Seductora has the worst cover up dropkick to follow it. Mima/Lluvia start to off fine, slow down on an over the top rope armdrag by Lluvia, followed by a Mima slap which is unhelpfully exposed by the camera. End game, with all six in, nearly goes bad when Dalis has trouble rolling over a Luna Mágica backdrop. Rudas miss double clotheslines on Luna, and Lluvia's a little late and a little bad on the dropkick on Seductora & Blanca. (Watching, Mima throws her head back in despair, though I think it's supposed to be about the rudo's fate.) Técnicos all get submission of differing qualities.

2: Dalys gets another showcase versus Blanca, but when Mágica tries to cartwheel, the rudas dropkick her to start the beatdown. Hart Attack clothesline on Lluvia. Spinebuster and inverted figure four on Dalis to start the end of fall submissions.

Most of the interviews are recycled stuff from Ras de Lona, but the one in between falls is Julio Cesar interviewing Lluvia's five year old daughter, who is not at all impressed with the guy kneeling down asking her questions. She plans to be Lluvia II!

3: Rudas nominally in control, though Dalis slaps Blanca, then throws Seductora into the front row. She walks into the ring and attacks Mima while Seductora and Blanca work over the other two, and they're finally able to stop Dalis when they all work together. Rudas thrown people around, mass stomp Luna. Not very interesting. Luan evades Seductora’s charge when she goes last, slaps her on the backside, and sends Mima and Blanca out with an armdrag/headscissors combo. With a way over complicated setup, Dalis and Lluvia land sillas on Blanca and Mima. Seductora teases dive, but Lluvia breaks up with a missile dropkick. Her dropkicks are never quite good. Luna tries the same double underhook lift as in the first fall, but Seductora reverses I into a bodyscissors cradle - (slowly) one two three! Upset. If I were Seductora, I'd keep quit about it for a while to a void a feud.

Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 11:22
Rating: about usual
Notes: We really needed an Italian to make this WW2 team work. Referee are Terror Chino and Tiger Hispano.

1: Valiente dominates Yoshihashi on the mat, to the point of letting the rookie put holds on him just so he could escape them. Monkey flip ends it, though Yoshihashi is the last to know it's over. Vangelis fares no better, but Okumura keeps rushing into break up holds and running away. Clip, and suddenly the rudos are stomping down the técnicos. That was the most obvious mid match clip on this show in some time, or a really bad camera switch. Brawling leads to corner charges on Valiente leads to Yoshihashi top rope senton con giro. Rudos are actually aware of the captain, and Vangelis northern lights suplex Fantasma.

Julio Cesar calls Vangelis a young luchador and a grand luchador. Credibility destroyed!

2: Vangelis & Toscano have a stripping contest. This ends badly for everyone, but mostly Vangelis. Toscano chest slaps everyone, and Okumura tries to see how much he can over sell it. Rudos actually recover. Triple boot for him. Vangelis wheel kick for Fantasma. Rudos try for the triple dropkick to the head on Valiente, but the Japanese get pulled out, and Valiente drops down under Vangelis. Vangelis throws himself out, and Valiente throws himself after with a tope. Fantasma easily finishes Okumura. Toscano gets a pin on Yoshihashi with a suplex, which actually doesn't count but I was counting everything in the first match so why not.

3: Seems JIP. Vangelis and Fantasma are having a slap fight. Fantasma blocks one, armdrag Vangelis, absorbs a shoulderblock, and hiptosses Vangelis to the ropes. Vangelis has the upper body that looks better with a shirt on. Fantasma spanks him, trips him up, and tags in Valiente for a missile dropkick. Yoshihashi tries running really fast at Valiente, and just eats a dropkick to the knee. Okumura missile dropkicks Valiente, but Toscano is ready to face him. Stop sign, strip. Why did he sniff his own shorts? Quebradora con giro for Okumura. Toscano is flipped to apron, comes back to land another missile dropkick. Third of this fall! Way to mix things up, guys. Other rudos try to deal with Fantasma and Toscano, and fail. Valiente double jump into a headscissors on Okumura! Head to get the double jump in. Layout chestbreaker, one two three.
