Match 1: Diamante Azul, Sagrado, Shocker © vs Black Warrior, Dragón Rojo Jr. ©, Ephesto
Arena Mexico, 07/13/2012
Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 12:45
Notes: Monito is with Shocker, and wearing a t-shirt – new Shocker gear? An odd assortment of folks in this match. Referee is Maya. Warrior's hair is still rather short, and he's back to dying it.
1: Pairs are Warrior/Sagrado, Ephesto/Azul, Rojo/Shocker. Dragon Rojo thrills the crowd by (apparently) screwing up an armdrag spot. Shocker gets him with two quebradoras, then struts and dances. Warrior stops that with a high kick, and dropkick the other two off the apron. 619 kick, then eventually a catapult hold to set up Ephesto's legdrop. That does it.
2: Rudos slowly beat up the técnicos while their partners can only slightly come in. Rudos pull of a nice flapjack into upraised boot on Sagrado. Shocker starts to clear out everyone by himself, but Dragon Rojo puts a stop to it with a trip on the ropes and his inside out dropkick. This slows Shocker for about zero seconds, as he immediately recovers to pull Dragon Rojo off from an Asai. Azul ties up Ephesto, and Sagrado uses a new move to finish Warrior.
3: Sagrado knocks down Warrior with a kick, Warrior knocks down Sagrado with a spear. Sagrado reverses a corner whip, Warrior slides out, Sagrado superkicks him and slingshots him into the post. Warrior had to get that in this match, though it's a big impact. Azul does his slide escape, but Dragon Rojo immediately spears him. Rojo takes him down with a headlock on the next pass, superkicks him in the corner, and smashes him on the corner senton. Azul then slides out on Ephesto, and you know that part. Sagrado powerslam on Warrior for two. Sagrado heel kick, then a springboard tope con giro onto the two outside. Warrior adds his tope on Sagrado, racking him into the barricade. Captains in, Shocker turns a clothesline into his tirabuzón cradle, one two three.
Match 2: Euforia & Último Guerrero vs Atlantis & Titán
Arena Mexico, 07/13/2012
Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 17:08
Notes: Titan's mask has no chin this week. Atlantis has changed his music again. It's still no party rock. He's too fast down the stairs, so Ultimo doesn't catch up to attack him from behind until he's down the ramp. Ref is Babe Richard.
1: Rudos slam and kick the técnicos around. Titan takes the senton de la muerte. Euforia does an odd amount of jumping off the top rope and slingshotting just to attack the técnicos's shoulders. Someone's go to be the jumpy one, I guess. Técnicos whipped in to each other, tied up,and submitted together for the fall.
2: Drop toe hold, weirdly delayed legdrop on Atlantis. UG sets Atlantis on the top rope and unties the his mask, after ripping at it earlier. Guerrero gets it all off, but Atlantis hold it front of face and puts it back on while UG is warned. UG wanders over and slaps Titan off the apron, then press slams him on the barricade. Euforia takes over by going for the mask himself. They show that instead of UG throwing Titan into the barricade at full speed, but get a replay of that. Euforia brings Titan in and clotheslines him out to the ramp. Atlantis sides steps a corner charge, flips Atlantis out with a dropkick, and Titan walks up the ropes back in to springboard dropkick Euforia out. Atlantis goes up top, and planchas Euforia on the outside. Titan fireman's carry drops UG (!) and lands the handspring moonsault one two three.
Tecnicos celebrate, then Titan puts UG on the top rope and goes after his mask! UG is too hurt to fight him off much.
3: Titan gets in the handwalk backflip headscissors on Guerrero, who slides right out after that. Titan gos out to pose and confront him. Euforia runs into a backdrop from Atlantis, , then takes the monkey flip. Euforia slaps Atlantis in the chest, charges, misses a clothesline and Atlantis clotheslines Euforia out instead. UG and Euforia stall on the outside, to the técnicos chase them, and run them into each other. This has been way in the técnicos favor. Everyone back in just long enough to send everyone out – boost headscissors takes care of Euforia, and UG takes ye old knee bump out. Atlantis' tope is captured by the camera well, Titan's whatever (tope con giro) is not really on the first angle, slightly better on the second one. Titan and UG come back in, Titan slapping UG around. Corner whip, UG sits on the top rope. Titan thinks about it, charges, jab, front superplex. When will they ever learn? One two NO. Then again, it almost never works as a pinfall. Titan is somehow up first and kicking UG into the corner. Titan wanders around a bit, as if waiting for something, then corner whips UG. Corner charge, UG flips him to the apron, Titan forearms him, stunner over the ropes, springboard rope flip moonsault one two Euforia breaks it up. Euforia stands over Titan. Chest slap. Whip, Euforia misses a clothesline, Titan handspring into a spinning DDT! One two NO. Titan clothesline blocked, Euforia pumphandle, Euforica Special one two Atlantis breaks it up. Whip, Atlantis spinebuster one two t-NO. Atlantis casadora blocked into a Euforia sit down one two NO. Atlantis looks very tired. Euforia pounds him in his back and chops him in the corner. Corner whip, reversed, Atlantis yells, Euforia charges out, and Atlantis gives him a quebradora. Atlantis is fired up! Another quebradora, one two NO. Atlantis is a bit frustrated. Scoop, slam. He's going up? You have a partner (who's not in the apron, maybe never mind.) The other issue is UG is fine enough to run across the ring and crotch Atlantis from behind. UG starts for his move, but Titan attacks him from behind and lifts him on his shoulders. Titan holds him up for a bit, then drops him so Atlantis can do the plancha on Euforia as he approaches, Titan covers UG as Atlantis is on Euforia, one two NO. Atlantis and Euforia slaps each other, Euforia misses a corner charge but hammerlock Atlantis instead, ref checks that out and misses Titan yanking UG's mask and small packaging him one two three. Atlantis does the same to Euforia, and picks up the pin.
Atlantis says, rudo or técnico, he proved their better. Highlights.
