Atlantis is fired up, until Negro hits him from behind. Corner whip, corner clothesline, back up, charge, senton de la muerte. UG holds himself up a while.

Tag to Negro, who kicks Místico in the chest a few times. Armbar, elbow lock, tag to Dragon Rojo. Rojo goes up, and ax-handles Místico in the back.

Rojo with a cristo Negro variant (according to Magadan) on Devitt for the fall.
2: Atlantis whipped, UG drop toe hold, Negro elbow drop to the upper back. Negro knocks Atlantis out of the ring. Crowd boos as Místico re-enters.
