Notes: Referee is Edgar.
1: Azteca annoys Hooligan with many armdrags. Starman and Signo, both wearing white masks with silver features, go back and forth next. Pegasso and Virus have some nifty counters – Pegasso's knee must be feeling well if he's flipping out monkey flips – and a headscissors and a casadora armdrags the rudo out. Signo trips Pegasso up with a dropkick to the knee and another to the head. Starman gives Signo a sunset flip roll thru splash and a wheel kick. Hooligan just shoulderblocks Starman out. Angel Azteca just springboard dropkicks Hooligan and armdrags him out. Azteca straddles the top rope, then leaps up to it for a moonsault to the floor. Virus knocks Pegasso down, but runs into Starman's forearm. Signo takes Pegasso down and comes in, but goes right out to a Starman armdrag. Técnicos work together on Virus, Starman dropping him in position for Pegaso's 450 splash (!) for the fall. Pegasso is very thrilled with the win.
2: Tecnicos remain rolling. Hooligan misses a charge on Starman, takes a crazy bump to the floor, and Starman adds one more with an overhead headscissors. Starman poses. Azteca powerslams Signo for a near fall then push off headscissors him out. Pegasso out smarts Virus with armdrags and dropkick. Signo planchas Pegasso, flips him to the apron, and dropkicks him off. Signo runs for a dive, but Starman stops that via quebradora and clotheslines Signo out. Tope to the camera side. Azteca goes back to amdragging Hooligan, but Hooligan stops his fun with a harsh clothesline. Azteca charges Hooligan in the corner; lucky for him this isn't another Tuareg member, because Hooligan only spinebusters him. Hooligan celebrates, which Virus uses to tag himself in and pin Azteca with a nudo. Hooligan is very unhappy.
Hooligan is so unhappy that he steps in and kicks Virus as he's celebrating! Pegasso headscissors Hooligan, but Virus eventually fireman's carries him. Arm trap half crab, , but Hooligan breaks up the hold. Virus and Hooligan have it out in the middle of the ring with chops, Starman and Pegasso inside cradle them one two three.
Tecnicos have no problem winning that way. Hooligan and Virus resume fighting, Hooligan getting the better of it before they go to replays.
