Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 13:53
Notes: Yujiro grabs an edecan again, but Carolina seems to be expecting it. Or not as surprised. Tirantes is the referee.
1: Pairs are Yujiro/Shocker (battle of the blondes!), Mephisto/Atlantis, and that turns out to be it. Yujiro and Shocker are even, up until they get loss. Atlantis monkey flips Mephisto around, but Yujiro get in one shot from outside, and that's all they need to set up Volador's guillotine legdrop. Rudos keep the rest out and get the win.
Announcers say hi.
