Match 1: Estrellita vs Princesa Sugheit in a lightning match
Arena Coliseo, 07/22/2012
Match Time: 8:39
Notes: Ref is Pompin.
Early section includes Estrellita putting Sugheit in a leg lock and Sugheit pulling hair. That seems backwards for some reason. Even armdrag exchange at 1:15 leads to Estrellita armdragging Sugheit out and teasing the dive. Sugheit stall on the outside. Back in, evasion leads to dancing. Estrellita gets in one elbow smash, but Sugheit evades the second and starts in on the kicks and hair pulling. Estrellita pulls out a run up the ropes armdrag out of nowhere then goes for the apron dive and eats Sugheit's kick. Usual bit. Back in for more kicking. Sugheit hangs Estrellita on the ropes, and kicks her again. Estrellita falls to the floor and hangs out there for a while. Estrellita crawls back in, gets thrown around by her hair. Estrellita manages to get to the top rope on a whip and dance, but gets very little more before Sugheit is kicking her again. Sugheit goes out to the apron and slingshot sentons in for a two count. That's by far the most interesting thing Sugheit has done. Sugheit goes for another (six minutes) but of course Estrellita moves. No problem, Sugheit just kicks her again. Estrellita blocks a turnbuckle smash and gently pulls her down by the hair, then goes up for a top rope plancha. Estrellita does not get much air on it. Casadora cradle for two. Sunset flip escaped and kicked. They exchange unlikely near falls. Sugheit mixes it up by hitting Estrellita with her hand instead of her foot for a while, then there's a corner whip back elbow that looks totally missed from our camera angle but apparently isn't. Back the other way, Estrellita sneaks in a cradle for two. Estrellita casadora cradle, Sugheit escapes. Ring announcer says there's only two minutes left, so their clock is about 10 seconds ahead of mine. Estrellita backslide, Sugheit rolls free and kicks her. Sugheit dumps Estrellita face first into the corner, misses the charge, and Estrellita sorts of casadora her into a pin for two. That did not look right. Whip, this time the casadora goes into the Star Cross figure four right this time.
Match 2: Diamante, Hijo del Fantasma ©, Triton vs Ephesto ©, Sangre Azteca, Shigeo Okumura
Arena Coliseo, 07/22/2012
Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 17:39
Notes: Ref is Terror Chino.
1: Pairs are Triton/Okumura, Diamante/Sangre and Fantasma/Ephesto. Diamante is now doing Santo style headscissors off the mat. Really weird how every técnico is an idiot when they face Ephesto, but Fantasma does not break the streak. Okumura misses a corner charge and Triton holds him in a time killing submission, a fine use of Triton. Diamante planchas Sangre, then eventually remembers to try and dropkick him and get his partner instead. Diamante took a side trip off the ropes before he got it. Rudos finish.
2: Rudos hold down Fantasma and go after his mask for no reason. Well, no reason except they hate him, but no reason in this match specifically. Referee actually gets control of the situation, making them take turns beating Fantasma instead. Rudos do the usual bit of keeping a guy in, then suddenly not bothering because they need a new opponent. This time, Sangre just whips Fantasma straight in the técnico corner, allowing Diamante to tag in. Sangre kicks him around, and goes for his mask. Sangre relents to slapping him and whipping him into kicks from his partners. Diamante sits on the middle rope after a whip, but Sangre hits him and steals Tiffany's finisher. The nerve! Titan is slapped and back elbowed. Rudos not really interested in doing anything interesting on their run. Okumura DDTs Titan, then tags in for Sangre to slap Triton very hard and very loud. Sangre boots Triton out. Fantasma grabs Sangre in a cravate, and the other two break it up and argue with the ref. Fantasma takes one set of corner charge, evades Okumura on a second, then he and Sangre engage in a brief staring contest. Fantasma charges and monkey flips Sangre a very short distance. Everyone else is in slow motion or just looking off too. Diamante dropkicks Ephesto out, Fantasma teases a dive, but Ephesto flees and Fantasma just chases him to the front row. Other técnicos finish it.
3: Diamante starts of well with a headscissors on Sangre, has a problem on a casadora armdrag with Ephesto, and springboard dropkicks Okumura out. Diamante glides into a tope con giro on that rudo. Sangre asks for a handshake from Triton – maybe he just wants to check out the cool gloves. Chest slap match is not much with Triton involved, and Sangre ends up kicking him and bopping him in the back of the head. Off the ropes evasion, springboard headscissors, out goes Sangre. Ephesto knocks Triton down, but misses a corner charge and takes the big bump out. Triton connects on the Valiente special. Fantasma headscissors Sangre out and topes him to complete the dive run. Okumura and Diamante back in, Diamante ends up with a springboard plancha and a quebradora. A second quebradora, and Diamante is looking more like Sagrado by the second. One two NO. Whip, reversed, Okumura drop toe hold, camel clutch cradle one two NO. Everyone else is watching form their corner. Okumura kick, Michinoku Driver, one two Triton breaks it up. Those two roll out, as does Triton, and Fantasma powerslams Sangre as he comes in. This one is now going long. Fantasma holds Sangre, but Triton's springboard dropkick gets his partner. Aztec armdrag Triton around, Triton side steps a clothesline, Whip, reversed, Sangre put his head down too soon, sunset flip, roll back so Ephesto nails his own partner. That got the crowd back into it, they'd be quieting down. Triton quebradoras Ephesto twice, and tags in Fantasma. Fantasma whips his partner, tosses him in the air, and Triton comes down right into Ephesto's raised feet. Triton rolls out, Ephesto reaches after him, Fantasma cradles him, Ephesto rolls thru, Fantasma 'rana anyway one two three. Captains, so that's it.
Match 3: Marco Corleone ©, Rush, Shocker vs Rey Bucanero, Terrible ©, Tiger
Arena Coliseo, 07/22/2012
Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 9:41
Notes: Joined with TRT already stomping down Rush on the ramp, because of course. Other técnicos are not helpful breaking it up. Ref is Maya.
1: Bucanero throws Monito on top of Marco. Terrible ties camera cord around Rush's neck and drags him a bit. Bucanero uses Monito as a battering ram on Marco. Tiger stomps Shocker in the ring and kill some time. Rudos calm down a bit, working over Shocker and making tags. Rush storms in and take down Tigre, but Terrible kicks him to turn it over. All three guys kick and stomp Rush out of the ring. Marco comes in to tone punch everyone, but Tigre puts him down with a superkick. Wheelbarrow legdrop on Marco, and Terrible covers to take the fall.
2: Rush takes down Terrible, Tiger and Bucanero jump in to kick him, and Maya starts speed counting. He counts the first one slow, then maybe realizes the finish and rapidly finishes the rest. He's so fast, he turns 20 in to 10 (or he just forgets it's supposed to be a 20 count – or maybe it's not a 20 count anymore?) Absurdly short fall. Rudos are unconcerned. Announcers at least known what's going on.
3: Everyone back to their corner except for Tiger and Marco. Tigre tries to have a slap versus punch battle, and though he does slap hard, he also gets shaken by every punch. Tigre finally ducks, but tries a sunset flip a bit later. Bucanero comes in, but Marco just starts hoping and clotheslining. Terrible comes in, so Rush jumps in. Terrible decides to leave, and Bucanero comes in. Rush decides he'll just go out to the apron, and Terrible goes around the corner to get away. Rush relents and tags in Shocker. Shocker is ready to fight Bucanero, but Monito demands the fight. Rey does some push ups to fire up, and Monito does one handed push ups! Bucanero picks up Monito, Monito kicks him low, slaps him in the face, and runs out as Shocker urns in. Sunset flip sets up another Monito legdrop, and Shocker inside cradles Rey so Monito can do it again. Rey finally kicks Monito down, but Shocker does the same to him, and sets up Monito for a second rope butt splash. Bucanero runs away rather than get beat any more. Terrible in, and Rush in again. And Terrible tags Tigre in. Rush is very displeased. Chop fight, Rush ripping off Tiger's shirt to hit him harder. Rush kicks Tigre down, and spits a Terrible. Terrible still wont' come in, so gut punches for Tiger. Off the ropes evasion, Rush elbow smash on Tiger, and Terrible sneaks in a dropkick on Rush. Stomps. Whip, reversed, Terrible misses a clothesline and runs into a belly to belly suplex. Rush dropkick Terrible out, but goes right after him. Kicks and punches on the floor. Rush goes for the takedown, and double stomps Terrible right in front of the fans. Rush comes back in, but Tiger superkicks him out. Shocker in, Tiger clothesline misses, Shocker gut punch, off the ropes, over for a sunset flip one two NO. Shocker drop toe hold, casita, one two NO. Tiger clothesline Shocker and stomps him. Pose. Tigre off the ropes, clothesline blocked into a reinera – and Tiger gives.
Bucanero in, clotheslining Shocker. Rey taunt. Rey avoids his double chop and gives Shocker the Tormenta Bucanera – for three!
Marco punches Bucanero around and out of the ring. Marco to the middle rope – clothesline to the floor on Bucanero, and Monito splash top top it off. Terrible and Rush left back in, Rush generally losing his mind about it. Rush dropkick misses, Terrible kicks him around. Corner whip, rush stops short and dropkicks Terrible. Both up, Terrible clothesline turned into a back suplex, senton, one two three.
Terrible gets the microphone to declare Rush lucky, but since he's awake this time – how about the hair vs hair match? Rush says he's been waiting to hear Terrible say that, and he accepts, “dog”. Rush goes out and after Terrible with slaps. They roll around on the floor, but break themselves up.
