Match Time: 11:17
Rating: a lot of fun. Dorada remains the best.
Notes: Mascarita Dorada lives! At least for one more match here. Again, Bracito de Oro tries to cut Pequeño Warrior off at the steps, and again Mini Warrior easily circles around him to get where he wants to go. NEW PLAN. Pompin and Babe Richard are the refs.
1: Despite the entrances, they JIP as Eléctrico and Pierrothito are finishing up. It's good they leave Dorada & Warrior in, because they have an awesome grappling battle, Dorada often physically dominating the much bigger man. Highlights include Warrior lifting up Dorada with one arm, while Dorada has that arm in a cross armbreaker, only for Dorada to take him right back down to the mat. The whole thing goes about four minutes, with Warrior retreating after a suplex, a double spine headscissors into an armdrag, and a dropkick. Nitro and Bracito de Oro come in, and they'd look bad after following that, but Bracito de Oro taking a bump on a punch that misses him easily isn't helping the situation. Nitro is wearing an all black mask that looks very plain. After Bracito runs Nitro over with his fat, Warrior slices Bracito with a dropkick to the knee, then dropkicks Oro over to the corner so Pierrothito can stomp from outside. Bracito makes a shoulderblock heavy comeback on Bracito, but Pierrothito pulls him out, slaps him down, and holds him in place for Warrior’s slingshot guillotine legdrop. Nitro sends Dorada out, and follows with an apron elbow smash. Bodyscissors chestbreaker by 2 rudos, Pierrothito running bridging inverted facelock to submit Electrico. Warrior brings in Dorada, lifts him over his shoulders, and gives him a running crucifix powerbomb into the top turnbuckle! That's not enough, the rudos each grab a limb, hold Dorada up, and kick him in the back for fun. That's still not enough - rebound hiptoss into Warrior’s upraised feet. That'll do.
2: edit picks up with the técnicos just about to start their comeback. Dorada sends Mini nitro out with a springboard dropkick. Eléctrico with a tope con giro over the corner post onto Pierrothito, and Dorada with a thru the ropes tope on Nitro. Backdrop, sit on top to finish off Warrior. Not the captain, so Bracito gives Nitro a Death valley Driver (!?!!), and pulls him in position for Dorada's running corner springboard moonsault.
El Solitario remembered. Clips from a match that appeared to include Atlantis & the Villanos.
3: One more Dorada/Pierrothito sequence for the road a – spinning armdrag into a spinning headscissors causes Pierrothito to take a painful trip into the ropes, and this bit ends oddly. Feuding guys in, Warrior dropkicks Bracito de Oro down in the corner, only to eat a top rope Dorada headscissors. Another headscissors ends Warrior rout, but Pierrothito cuts him of from his dive with a kick thru the ropes. While Pierrothito is busy celebrating himself, Bracito slips by for a bowling ball tope con giro on Warrior. Nitro in on Dorada, and that fails almost immediately – I guess Eléctrico was holding the ropes apart, and that's why Nitro suddenly fell thru them to the floor. Eléctrico wastes no time going for a top rope moonsault to the floor, and maybe he should've paused for a few seconds because Nitro really didn't get much on the catch. Inside, Pierrothito knocks down Dorada, but misses a clothesline and eats a spinning armdrag into spinning headscissors into he can't lock on the satellite armbar, so Dorada will just armdrag him to the mat instead, flip him over for camel clutch, roll him on his back, and start a farmer's rolls! What the heck. Back to the camel clutch, and Pierrothito gives. HOORAY.

Match Time: 11:41
Rating: about usual
Notes: Hijo de Avernos enter as a group with the black hoods.
1: Despite full entrances, joined with beatdown already in progress. Ephesto has opted for a black under armor shirt rather than his own shirt. Or maybe it already got ripped off? Double team powerbombs et sup the first finish, Ephesto's shoulderbreaker sets up the second. I don't know that you need to be doing flying headbutts in the first fall of a heavily edited match on LATV, but the thought is nice.
2: Beatdown continues thru the fall, with Panther taking the triple boot to set up the triple roll/pose, and Rush being held on the apron for an Averno dropkick, knocking Rush to the floor. While Averno poses, Sagrado sneaks back in and beats him with a sunset flip for the fall.
3: Showcases go Rush/Mephisto (crowd still hates Rush), Sagrado/Averno, and Ephesto/Panther. There's a weird spot in the last, where they’re running past each other, Panther ducks punches (I think, tough to tell from the angle), and Ephesto goes down complaining about a foul. Panther protests, then decides just to put on an armbar. Mephisto rushes into break that up. We never get another angle. Panther ends sending Mephisto out with a headscissors. Averno gets in one shot, then poses for about a half minute. Yawn. Whip, Panther turns it into a tope on Panther. Averno goes for his own dive, but comes to a halt so Sagrado can springboard dropkick. Tope con giro there, rush and Ephesto are left. Rush backdrops Ephesto the apron, superkicks him off a springboard try, and follows with a plancha. Mephisto and Panther back in, neither man really in any hurry to actually wrestle. Mephisto tilt-a-whirl, Panther lands on top, one two no. Both up again, Panther sunset flip into a farmer’s roll, Panther stops, and both rudos are in to break it up. Técnicos in, but are utterly infective. Headlocks, rudos shoved off into each other, and Rush tosses Sagrado into a dropkick on both. This fall just keeps going. Sagrado backdrops Rush into a pescado, but the rudos catches him and hold him. Sagrado's turn – tope – no, Mephisto cuts him off with a kick as he comes thru the ropes. Ephesto slams Rush on the floor to take care of him, and Rafael el Maya checks on Rush. They stick with that shot for a bit, while Panther and Mephisto resume fighting in the ring. Panther backdrops Mephisto and starts to lock on nudo lagunero, but Averno runs back in again. This time, Averno opts not to kick, but instead throws a drink in Panther in his face. Rudos cover, and that's it. Wait, he got pinned by a drink to the face? Ephesto had the other ref, but still.
