Arena Mexico, 06/01/2012
Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 18:24
Notes: Rey Cometa appears to be constantly working at making his outfit more black. Cometa still doesn't have a video. Stuka has one with highlights, which look much better than the posing ones they do. Someone has problems hitting the right buttons to get Valiente's video to turn up, and then they just kind of give up on the thing. Puma carries his new trophy, the Arissma mask, to the ring. Okumura's video is playing in super slow motion. Someone needs to kick the VCR. Rodolfo is the referee.

Valiente dropkick the inside of Valiente's left leg. Rudos go after the left leg for a while. Rey Cometa pleads to get in, which doesn't help. Valiente is finally able to roll himself out. Namajague slams Cometa and pins him with one knee, but that doesn’t quite get the three count. Puma pulls down Cometa's top to chop him. Rudos are just meandering. Double boot for Stuka. Japanese fake a dive, then do a pose together. Valiente's leg isn't so hurt that he can't pull of a double springboard headscissors on Puma, which starts to everyone kicking each other.

Match 2: Diamante Azul, La Sombra ©, Máximo vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible ©, Tiger
Arena Mexico, 06/01/2012
Winner: TRT (2-1)
Match Time: 13:19
Notes: Azul's knee diamonds have a new white backing, to make him look even more like a certain Demon. Monito is with Maximo. TRT enter together. Tiger looks like he stole Mr. Cacao's jacket. Also, a weird looking neon green mask. I guess it's supposed to be scarier. Referee is Tigre Hispano.
1: Pairs are Tiger/Diamante, Máximo/Bucanero, Sombra/Terrible. Diamante/Tiger is oddly even early, then Azul armdrags Tiger around. Máximo is Máximo. Terrible slaps Sombra down, but soon is taking Sombra's offense, and a headscissors out. Sombra tries to handstand in front of Tiger and is dropkicked instead. Azul dropkicks out Tiger, Bucanero flips him to the apron ramp side, and Tiger superkicks Azul. Máximo charge in, bumps Tiger off the apron (Tiger had to go out of his to get there), slides Bucanero out, and gently topes Bucanero. Azul gets in his dive on Tiger too. Sombra planchas Terrible, tries a casadora, and gets thrown back in a wheelbarrow suplex. Big one, too.
2: Rolling senton for Máximo, but no pin. Azul seated dropkicked off the apron. Sombra forearmed. Máximo booted. Bucanero brings Monito in, and Terrible giant swings him into a Tiger dropkick. Replay of that. Azul promptly evades a corner charge, and gets Terrible with a German suplex. Bucanero breaks that up, Sombra missile dropkicks him, Terrible hits him, Máximo kisses Terrible, Sombra 'rana on Terrible, one two three.
3: Azul throws Tiger around. The giant armdrag is a lot rougher this week. Azul comes in with a slingshot front cracker, but Azul is up and monkey flipping him soon enough. Armdrags and superkicks for Terrible. Máximo does his usual stuff. Sombra is not impressed by Tiger. Sombra shoulderblocks him, then catches him in a powerslam. Bucanero knocks Sombra over before he can get in a pin, but then Sombra get in some Marco like leapfrog leading to a poor boosted dropkick on Tiger. Problem with the boost on that one. Sombra headscissors Bucanero out, then waits for Terrible to come in. Terrible does an kicks him, but them throws himself out on a charge. Sombra runs, and knocks him over with a tope con giro. Máximo boots Azul into a 'rana, which seems like a poor idea even before Bucanero blocks it into a powerbomb. Máximo rolls into a Tiger seated dropkick. Referee drops to count both pins, but Bucanero's given up waiting for the pin, and switches to a submission. It's over, anyway.
