Notes: Ref is Pompin.

1: Olímpico tosses Aereo, gets bored, tags to Nitro. Aereo does much better against Nitro and tags in Halcón. That's even until Nitro sneaks in a questionably low shot, and then it's Demus’ turn. Demus knocks down Halcón, runs into armdrags, then drops the young mini técnicos with a shoulder powerslam. Big dropkick sends Halcón out. Dragoncito in, Dragoncito posing, Dragoncito clotheslined onto his shoulders. Corner whip, corner clothesline. Corner whip, Dragoncito reverses, Demus flips him to the apron, Dragoncito fixes his pants and waits, Demus comes back, top rope flying headscissors. Dragoncito puts Demus in a hold, other rudos kick them both out. Other técnicos in, and they get the better of it.

2: técnicos have to hold Dragoncito back from going to the ring girl. Relays include Olímpico battering Aereo again, and only lasting one move with Dragoncito. Nitro catches him with a hanging in the ropes backcracker, Halcón headscissors Nitro out, rudos rush him, and that looks like the beatdown. Halcón has all sorts of problems taking the double rebound hiptoss. Nitro slaps Halcón on the back and runs around the ring like a fool as his partners submit Halcón. Rudos all hold up Aereo to kick. It looks like Pompin calls it, but then they drop him and cover him for a three count. Whichever.

3: Clip? It's back to 50/50, with Demus and Olímpico hurting on the floor. I think it's probably a clip. Halcón bails on a springboard, then Nitro steps away on his next try. This is the part they left in? Halcón stops Nitro twice with quebradoras, but Demus dropkick him out and Olímpico knocks him around. Two man Burning Hammer on Halcón, but the other técnicos make the save. Crowd not into this. Neither I am. Dragoncito and Aereo double suplex Olímpico, and other rudos breaks up the resulting pin. Demus sneaks in a questionably slow shot on Aero. Airplane spin/dropkick to the head is well times. One two three.

Demus dropkicks Halcón out of the ring and out of action for the moment. Dragon planchas Olímpico, but Nitro slaps him. Demus hold him out, and Nitro adds the front cracker for the pin and the win.

Notes: Referee is Tiger Hispano. Black Warrior still exists, good to know.

1: Highlight of the fall is JCR calling Black Warrior vs Vangelis “experience vs youth”. Only in CMLL is 30 years old a youngster. They are the second pair, following Aguila/Metro. Warrior tries to see how long he can keep trying for a knee submission on the mat. It is a long time. More even exchanges end with Warrior sliding out, Vangelis sliding out after him, and Fantasma surprise toping Vangelis. Kraneo tries to senton Warrior as he comes back in, that fails, Aguila charges, and Warrior trips him into a dropkick on his partner, sending Kraneo out. Metro is next to his tope. Warrior DDTs Aguila and cradles him for the win. Fantasma stomps Aguila after the fall for no practical reason.

2: Metro offense run including him kicking so hard, Kraneo falls off the apron when the foot is two inches away from him. Fantasma and Mije go to war, as usual. Aguila and Warrior exchange some poor clotheslines. Kraneo unceremoniously clotheslines Warrior a few times and throws Mije on top for a surprisingly easy fall win. Técnicos do not react until it's too late.

Bobby Bonales video package 2.

3: Lots of stomping. The first combo spot they try to do with Warrior, the rudos are on different pages don’t even trying. Everyone tries biting Warrior's boots instead. Fantasma ducks a double clothesline to start the comeback, rudos knocking down Aguila instead. Fantasma superkicks everyone, Warrior slides out and trips Vangelis off the apron, then limps noticeably around ringside. Kraneo teases sit on Fantasma, so Metro tosses Cuije into him to get the foul (that’s not called a foul.) Kraneo falls over, Fantasma cradles him for a pin. Metro gets him pin off his corner body splash – no German, but Aguila still got killed. Announcers talk about this being the end of Metro.

1: Mephisto and Máximo go thru the motions of an even exchange, Máximo tries one goofy spin, and Mephisto is very upset. Máximo tries it again, and Averno leads the attack. Beatdown from there. Not much of a beatdown, and the rudos have a struggle with Marco. They settle on grabbing a leg while Mephisto slaps. Corner whip that follows is a poor idea – Marco corner to corner runs includes a clothesline for Mephisto and Ephesto. Marco waits for something. Máximo and Rush eventually come, in, Rush pescados Ephesto, Máximo tope con giro off the apron on Mephisto. Averno and Marco left in, Averno clothesline misses, Marco lifts him up in a cristo! That's enough for Averno.

Técnicos hold Averno for am Averno kiss, but Mephisto pulls him out. Rush chases Mephisto all the way to the back.

2: Rudos randomly back in control, and Marco makes another comeback off a corner whip Ephesto takes the stone punch. Tiger reveals he's hoping to win Dorada's title so he has a belt like Bucanero & Terrible. It's good to dream. JCR tries to get him to pick Negro Casas, but Tiger is not liking that idea. Mephisto takes two loud punches. Averno's chops have no affect on Marco, Marco's punch lays out Averno. Rush just gives Ephesto over on a powerslam, though that may have as much to do with Ephesto. Crowd actually chants for Rush to give Mephisto a second chop. Huh. They're not as booing him as much in Coliseo. He goes thru the rudos, finishing Averno with a superkick. Máximo is just a set up man to lead Ephesto into Rush's belly to belly suplex. Those two dropkick him out, then lift Mephisto for Marco high dropkick. Máximo finally gets that kiss on Averno, and headscissors him out too. Tope. Marco land the springboard clothesline from Mephisto for one pin, Rush finishes Ephesto with the fireman's carry bomb for the other.

Máximo makes the challenge. Averno says he will – but in Arena Mexico, not in front of these people. Averno walks off, taunting the people.
