Notes: Zavala is back in the pink shirt. Referee is Terror Chino.
1: Zavala out maneuvers Hombre Bala Jr. Super Comando looks much better than Super Halcón, though Halcón still gets in the armdrag at the end. Lots of boos for Halcón's pose. Artillero does not continue the streak, getting handled by Molotov. The two conspire to blow a springboard frontcracker, maybe, it was tough to tell what was supposed to happen. They end up outside where Molotov gets in a flipping armdrag. Zavala takes over with chops on Bala and a shot to Halcón on the apron, which earns him a Bobby chant. Corner whip, Bala sits down on the top rope and jumps off for a missile dropkick where his shins appear to hit first. That's not how it's supposed to work. Bala dumps Halcón in front of the corner, rope flip moonsault looks awful one two three. Wow, that was not impressive by the técnico at all. Halcón finishes Comando with a spinning headscissors into a Rosa, which does look nifty.
2: Chop fight between Zavala and Bala leads to run the ropes evasion leads to Bala headscissors. Bala takes away Zavala's pink shirt and slaps him. Whip, Zavala rolls out to the apron, but runs back towards a Bala dropkick. Bala lands his splash thru the ropes to the ramp. Comando hammers Halcón with a clothesline, then earns the crowd's approval with a chest slap in the corner. Corner whip, Comando charges in, Halcón gets his boot up then sends him cross ring with a spinning and flipping armdrag. Halcón charges, Super Comando flips him away, Halcón turns into a headstand on the corner and drops down to avoid Comando's charge. Springboard dropkick sends Comando out. Artillero has no problem with Molotov this tome, corner clotheslining him and shoving the técnico out of the ring. Bala tries to kick Artillero, but Artillero catches the boot and Zavala rushes into knocks down Bala himself. Backdrop, hard dropkick. Zavala chops Halcón, then drags him into the rudo corner for everyone to pound. Comando kicks and elbows Halcón, then brings in his brother for the wheelbarrow cuter. That looked great. Rudos all stomp Molotov, risking disqualification, then Comando sets him up for Zavala's splash. Match is tied.
3: Comando big boots Bala out. Artillero backdrops and stomps Molotov. Rudos stomp down Halcón in their corner. Flapjack, dropkick by Zavala for him. Zavala sits on one knee for Bala to get a free shot, and he still almost misses a kick to the face. Comando slingshot kicks Bala in the arm, then big boots him out again. Molotov comes in, stalls waiting to be hit from behind, then isn't prepared to be hit when he actually is. It did take a while for Artillero to find his way in around the referee. Rudos double dropkick to the head spot is broken up by the técnicos, but the timing was way off anyway. Halcon's left alone with Artillero while the others four brawl on the outside. Molotov quickly gives Artillero a quebradora. Artillero does manage to roll thru a 'rana for a two count, then turns Molotov into a another cradle for two. Molotov responds with a casadora small package for three.
Zavala ducks under a clothesline and headscissors Molotov out, only for Bala to armdrag him out. Flipping armdrag sends Bobby out swinging wildly. Bala slingshots out, kicks Bobby away, then climbs up the corner for a reverse tope to the floor. Comando reverses a whip, but runs into a thrust kick from Halcón. Halcón dropkicks Comando forward into the corner, then finishes him with his hanging spinning DDT.

Notes: Angel de Oro puts a pink mask on a little girl. Felino and Niebla dance in with Zacarias. Felino wears his mask. Rudos attack the técnicos while we're looking at the edecanes. Ref is Tirantes.
1: Brawling around. Niebla puts Shocker in the Tree of Woe, Tirantes frees him when Niebla is just standing there taking off his gloves, and Niebla is very unhappy. Yujro and Felino beat up Angel de Oro while the Niebla bests up Shocker on the outside. Announcers mention this is Yujiro's last macth before going home.
2: Rudos still in control, elbowing and slapping Máximo. Angel de Oro is slapped around next. Niebla gets in the full Niebla dance, but misses on the spit catch. Felino whips his hand on the mat and wipes it on his face. Angel de Oro flips himself to the apron so Shocker can get at Niebla. Crowd loud for their battle, until they actually start battling.

Shocker kicks Niebla into a chair a five rows deep, before bringing him back to post him. Yujiro and Angel de Oro standing around in the ring until Angel de Oro drop toe holds and legdrops him. Shocker slams Zac, which is just wrong. Rudos regroup for a moment, then the two who aren't Niebla come back in to be beat. Yujiro going down to Maximo's butt bump is quite the drop off. Felino squirms away from the mecedora when he's clearly not supposed to, stops, and Angel de Oro just ties up his legs to get them done.

Máximo watches Felino roll around, then falls for his handshake bit. Crowd loudly chants for a kiss, Máximo ties to make their wishes come thru, but Felino fights him off. Spinning armdrag, spinning headscissors, and Zac cuts off Máximo by mocking his spin. Zac escapes unhurt, a rarity. Shocker rips up Niebla's mask, then just lets him up to hit him. That's not sound. Niebla keeps slapping Shocker and Shocker doesn't defend. Niebla off the ropes, Shocker gives him the slowest heel kick ever, Niebla tumbles out, and Shocker topes him. Tope almost redeemed that, but it was long way down. Felino and Yujiro grab Máximo and, slaps Angel de Oro to keep him out.

Shocker clothesline Niebla off the ropes, covers, and Tirantes turns around to count, one two three.
Niebla reminds Shocker that he took his mask. Shocker does jumping jacks. Niebla says Shocker is no técnico to cheat like that. Niebla says Shocker is ugly, which is the worst possible insult. Shocker, who's voice doesn't sound, is 1000% Guapo, and isn't afraid of being a rudo. Shocker says he's 1000% Guapo. I think you said that. Everyone else is kind of wandering away. Shocker asks for a singles match. Niebla responds, though Shocker does jumping jacks again. Niebla wants mask vs hair.
