Match 1: Fuego vs Virus in a lightning match
Arena Mexico, 07/06/2012
Match Time: 6:11
Notes: joined with them already going. Referee is Pompin.
Battle on the mat almost leaves Fuego trapped in a cradle, but he escapes at three. Virus arts running the ropes, both evade and avoid for a while before Vfuego gets in a sprongboard armdrag. Virus flips him to the apron, misses a charge, and Fuego cruses him with ahead to the chest tope. Replays.
Fuego is flipped to the apron again, but fights off Virus and missile dropkicks him for two. Virus clotheslines Fuego a couple times and covers him for two. Fuego thrown into the ropes, Virus clothesline, Fuego back bends under it, and Virus reacts stronger to that than anyone has in four years. Fuego casadora is shoved off, Fuego lands on the ropes, Virus running sit, Fuego moves, and Virus hits the rope sand falls to the mat. Fuego covers for two. Fuego northern lights suplex (!) one two NO. Fuego out to eh apron, rope flip moonsault one two NO. Fuego pulling out the reserves here. Fuego whips Virus, spinebuster, pin, one two NO. Fuego quebrada, Virus moves, Fuego lands on his feet, Virus take shim down, leg lock, Fuego turns into a small package, one two NO. Virus cradle is half missed by the crowd, then Pompin doesn’t seem like he wants to count it. Two count anyway. Fuego goes for a headscissors, Virus shoves him off, takedown, and roll around into a campana. Fuego – gives!
Announcers say hello. Announcers are not much interested in the Japanese girls; everyone else gets video but that group.

Match 2: Dark Angel, Estrellita, Marcela © vs Hikaru, Lady Apache ©, Tsukasa
Arena Mexico, 07/06/2012
Winner: técnicas (2-1)
Match Time: 14:17
Notes: Estrellita is fighting Japanese people, so she's dresses as Sailor Moon. You just have to think like Estrellita. Actually, no, don't do that. Lady Apache brought her belt to the ring. Referee is Babe Richard
1: Marcela holds Tsukasa in a rolling armbar, a different way to go. Tsukasa comes back with a flippign armdrag, Marcela armdrags her back and gets in a bridging pin before zero pin exchange. Announcers are not even trying to put names to the Japanese women. To be fair, I didn't have them matched up right until I went and checked...but I went and checked. It was not challenging. Hikaru, the taller one of the two, has to deal with Estrellita. Estrellita dropkick her oddly off the bat, then dropkicks her in the side better. Not a moving target. Corner whip, high running kick but Estrellita. Corner whip, Hikaru breaks it, grabs Estrellita by the hair, and spanks her a couple times. Estrellita thrown in the corner, Hikaru punches a bit, and then just stops. She seems to be enjoying herself. Leo is the first person to actually name Hikaru. I would've lost that bet. Hikaru powerslam one two NO. Whip, Estrellita back with a clothesline. Estrellita up top, missile dropkick connects. Fake dive dance by Estrellita. Dark Angel and Lady Apache in last, Apache brushing Apache with a mistimed kick. Exchange of shoulderblocks get them nowhere. Dark Angle puts up the stops in and dances. Apache is not impressed and just waits for her to do something. Shot of the Japanese instead of whatever it is that Lady Apache does. Dark Angel with a run up the corner armdrag and a reverse neckbreaker hold, but the other rudas break it up. Other tecnicas miss dropkick, and the Japanese send them out. Tsukasa top rope plancha Marcela, while Hikaru hits Estrellita with flying knee off the apron. Lady Apache dropkick Dark Angle int the knee, rolling Tapatia – of evil! - gets the submission on the third roll. Referee counts out the others.
2: Tsukasa armbars Marcela and hands her off to Lady Apache. Snap mare, springboard elbow drop, kick in the general area of the face. Apache dropkick Estrellita as she comes in then kicks her in the face. Hikaru elbows Estrellita's arm and throws her around by her hair. Marcela's kicked as she charges in, but survives enough to have a good slaps fight with Hiraku. Apache lifts Hikaru on her shoulders for a spinning DDT on Marcela, which looks nice when it's done but takes a while to set up. Apache corner clotheslines Dark Angel around. Both rudas tagged in, Apache trip, double dropkick by the others. Apache beats up Dark Angel on the outside while Tsukasa kicks around Estrellita. Tags to both her partners again. Corner clothesline, corner dropkick, corner back elbow, both Hikaru and Apache bend over so Tsukasa can run up their back for a dropkick on the Estrellita. That was amusing, rudo fans approve. Apache accidental boosts Tsukasa into a dropkick onto her partner, and the técnicas are all in with headscissors and dropkicks. Dark Angel gets Lady Apache with a problem free tope, and the other técnicas have no problem with their finish. Marcela seems like she always wanted to try a wheelbarrow suplex but couldn't find anyone small enough to do until just this moment.
3: Tsukasa kicks around Marcela, but Marcela comes back with her running kneelifts and the springboard double kneelift. That one looked extra painful. Hikaru kicks Marcela out, survives a quick Dark Angel pin, and gives her a side backbreaker. Dark Angel turns an armbar into a fallaway slam. Lady Apache tries to surprise her with a back suplex, but Dark Angle shifts and fall on top for two. Lady Apache repays by turning a quebradora into her own pin. Dark Angel kicks Lady Apache on to her back in the corner, charge, Apache flips her to the apron and kicks her there. Estrellita planchas Lady Apache, casadora one two NO. Corner whip, reversed, Estrellita walks up the corner and jumps back for an armdrag to end Apache out. Tsukasa steps in, misses a clothesline and takes a boot to the face. Estrellita does her dance, and Tsukasa laughs. I like this woman. Estrellita back with a roll thru dropkick but only for two. Whip, Tsukasa swings around on a sunset flip, but they end up in the ropes. Whip, reversed, Estrellita kicks Tsukasa down, picks her back up, scoop, slam. One two NO. Tsuaksa pulls her self on top one – pause – two three. Tsukasa is happy, slightly confused. Announcers debate the count; it looked like the ref wasn't sure if Estrellita was still down, but they usually restart the count in that situation.
Tsukasa kicks Marcela, then casadora cradles her. One two Marcela revers one two no, Marcela into an anklelock. Tsukasa reaches for the ropes, can't get to them, taps, and then gives up. Close enough.
Hikaru kicks Marcela in the back of the head while she's celebrating, then does a kneelift where he leg passes over Marceka's head for a two count. Snap mare, kick to the back, off the ropes, Marcela dropkick Hikaru out. Tsukasa helps up her partner, and they both go down to a Marcela plancha. Feuding duo in, Lady Apache clothesline turned into reinera. That's it.
Replays. Estrellita dances over Lady Apache's body until she kick her away.
