Winner: rudos (2-1)
Match Time: 12:21
Rating: eh
Notes: Referee is Rafael el Maya.

1: Pairs are Molotov/Camorra and Oro/Apocalipsis, and they both keep it basic on the first cycle. Second time thru has the first bit end quickly with the other guys getting involved. Apocalipsis ducks under the moonsault bodyblock, drops Oro on his stomach off his shoulders, and ties him up for the submission.

Kid's Day promo.

2: Rudo control. Camorra gives Molotov the safest possible dropkick to the head. For starters, it hits the shoulders. Also, it doesn't hit the shoulders. Apocalipsis weirdly ties up Oro Jr. in the ropes and does the Skándalo dropkick, even with the stomps to set it up. Two minutes in, Molotov stands near the corner and boosts Oro Jr. into a flip, rudos stand there and watch, rudos keep standing there and watching as Oro boots Molotov into a dropkick, and them move out of the way of the dropkick and slap and kicks the técnicos ! Fake comeback, and great that it didn't work since the rudos would've had to be very distracted to make it good. Tecnicos turn it around on a whip into each other spot immediately after and take the fall.

3: Oro Jr. shows off a springboard tornillo armdrag. Molotov does usual basic técnico offense. Apocalipsis traps Oro Jr. in a tirabuzón, and Molotov has to make the save. Molotov gets a couple near falls, and Camorra breaks it a pin after a cradle swinging neckbreaker. Oro Jr. gets back in by stopping Camorra with a dropkick, but gets armdragged into something like a grounded reinera submission. Molotov and Apocalipsis seem to stumble to the finish, and Apocalipsis goes the worst ever Mr. Mexico/Valiente indian deathlock and pose spot. Molotov adjusts the hold himself to make it look better.

Match 2: Estrellita, Goya Kong, Lady Afrodita vs La Comandante, La Vaquerita, Zeuxis

Winner: técnicas (2-1)
Match Time: 15:22
Rating: below average (better than expected!)
Notes: Referee is Bestia Negra.

1: Match starts with Vaquerita and Lady Afrodita (new gear, less Ray, more generic) doing hammerlocks and half crabs and keeping it simple. The one good thing you can say is Afrodita finally has someone her own size to work against. Zeuxis takes Goya Kong's offense, appears to be dead on every shot, gets no offense until she moves out of the way of Goya's sit. Kicks and high kicks until Goya gets back to smashing her again. Comandante and Estrellita are the last pair. Estrellita can not slam Comandante. She's not that much bigger. This one, like Goya and Zeuxis, is heavy into the corner whips. Estrellita runs around, gets caught in a chokeslam, and reverse to a casadora cradle for three. Vaquerita is very upset at Comandante for losing, while Zeuxis is more disappointed in her.

2: Afrodita messes up a casadora armdrag to start the fall. Either Vaquerita is very loud, or the crowd is very quiet, because every noise she makes is picked up. After taking a typical headscissors to, Vaquerita ducks down to avoid a dive that's not happening. Zeuxis suckers Estrellita into an attack from behind, which more or less starts the beatdown. Vaquerita and Comandante double spinebuster on Goya looks silly. Zeuxis lands a running double knee to Goya's chest, which looks neat. Comandante holds up Afrodita for a Zeuxis front cracker, which Afrodita does not take well. Vaquerita can't get Estrellita's legs tied in the ropes, but does the low blow dropkick anyway. Giant swing/dropkick on her, and Zeuxis pins for the win.

Marco Corleone promo for Kid's Day.

3: Vaquerita can't knock Goya down. Shoulderblock, dropkicks, it all doesn’t work. She asks out, and neither of her partners will tag. Rookie hazing! Vaquerita does manage to whip Goya into the ruda corner and lands many punches, but Goya just runs out and tags Estrellita. Vaquerita tries to tag out, but Estrellita grabs her for more fun. Vaquerita fares better, with shoulderblock and hair pulls (and very obvious spot calling.) Zeuxis and Comandante again signal no plans to tag, but Vaquerita manages to kick Estrellita out on her own. Afrodita in, and now the other rudas tag themselves in. Afrodita sat on the top rope and tossed off. Zeuxis sends her out with a spine kick. Dropkick for Goya, and Comandante wheelbarrows Zeuxis into a legdrop. Rudas have no idea what they're doing with Estrellita, which leads together come back. Zeuxis takes a comically big bum off a simple kick by Estrellita. Rudas hit each other by mistake, técnicos hit each other by mistake, Zeuxis is whipped into a tope, but Goa ya blocked it with her stomach. Goya beats Zeuxis as Aforodita submits Vaquerita.

Match 3: Fuego, Hijo del Fantasma ©, Sagrado vs Misterioso Jr., Puma, Vangelis

Winner: técnicos
Match Time: 12:30
Rating: ok
Notes: Referee is Tirantes.

1: Pairs are Fantasma/Vangelis, Sagrado/Puma, Fuego/Misterioso. Action is better in the first fall compared to the previous matches, and crowd is a lot more interested. Misterioso does the backdrop set up for Vangelis' spear onto the ramp. Sagrado manages to dropkick Misterioso out, Puma superkicks him, Fantasma dropkick him. Puma stays in, catches Fantasma an upkick on a roll, and uses a casadora to set up his reverse figure four.

2: Rudos stay in charge. Misterioso works over one of Fuego's arm, and then switches and attacks the other arm. He's got no bias. Puma begs off from Fantasma and kisses his boot, and then gets up and chops Fantasma. Not a strong plan from Fantasma. Rudos lose it on a whip of Fuego. He backflips over two of them and leads him into a double chop of Misterioso, Sagrado and Fantasma kick down the other two, then Fantasma topes Misterioso. Other técnicos instantly win.

Angel de Oro plugs the Kid's Day Show.

3: Fantasma versus Puma includes an awkward bit where they both get their feet stuck in the same rope at the same time, then, Puma gets his foot stuck twice. Someone forgot something. Much simpler with monkey flips on Misterioso. Sagrado and Fuego get their offense in as well. Boost dropkick sends Puma & Vangelis out, and Fuego and Sagrado go out with tope con giros. Misterioso and Fantasma in, Misterio Gori Driver reverses into a sunset flip, and that's the match.

History Capsule: Alfonso Dantes, which somehow ends with a mention of Robert Kennedy's assassination.

Match 4: Stuka Jr., Super Porky, Valiente vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Pólvora, Rey Escorpión
Arena Mexico, 04/23/2013

Winner: técnicos (2-1)
Match Time: 9:27
Rating: ok
Notes: Referee is Tirantes. Rey Escorpion is backing away from Stuka before the match even starts. His partners block Stuka off to diffuse it.

1: More fooling around with Stuka trying to get a hold of Rey Escorpion before the match. Pólvora and Valiente properly start. They don't get too far, and they're broken up by Stuka chasing after Rey Escorpion again. Dragon Rojo and Brazo de Plata act as if they're going to start, but Escorpion takes over for Porky. Stuka tags himself in, and again Escorpion bails. Stuka's backed down by Dragon Rojo, and Escorpion and Porky actually start. Escorpion this Porky as hard as possible, and celebrates after knocking him down with a shoulderblock. Cheap shot for Stuka too. Rudos all come in to kick Porky out, and start attacking everyone. Valiente's kicked and chopped out. Whip for Stuka, boost into an Escorpion powerbomb, but Stuka reverses to a 'rana for three. Pólvora was looking right at the pin, then turned to run at something off camera.

2: Revolucionarios run the ring. Escorpion goes for Stuka's mask, then they hold him over the corner for jumping axhandles. Escorpion and Dragon Rojo give Porky a double suplex, and Pólvora add a top rope splash for the pin. Tecnicos unwisely made Porky the captain, lose. Escorpion attacks Stuka on the outside in between falls.

3: Rudos stay in control, though Stuka gets in a few shots on Escorpion before his partners make the save. Stuka reverses a whip and quebradoras Escorpion couple times before his partners break it up. Valiente fight them both off, and topes Pólvora hard despite hitting the ropes on the way thru. Dragon Rojo runs into Porky's stomach, and they all take the Brazo de Plata plancha. Escorpion and Stuka back in to finish it. Stuka gets in a head kick and a Code Red for the three count.

Stuka tells the champion to listen – he beat Rey Escorpion twice, he wants to win the title next week. Rey Escorpion says the people are cheering for the rudos. Rey Escorpion says Stuka just got two lucky shots in, but he won't get a third. Escorpion does say he have the pantolones to accept, then goes to the rudo section to get them to chant for him.

Winner: rudos (2-1)
Match Time: 10:38
Rating: ok
Notes: Marco Corleone walks to the ring with Angel de Oro, his replacement for the match. Cadena3 graphic really can't spell Shocker's name for some reason. Guerrero enter together. Zacarias with Mr. Niebla, who also has glowing sunglasses. Referee is Maya.

1: Thunder does hiptosses and headlock takedowns. Euforia is to quick to be hit by his big boot. UG attacks Thunder from behind for no reason, and Thunder tries to choke him in the corner. Niebla runs in as if he's going to break it up, but just runs in a circle and leaves. Thunder chops a few more times, and then Niebla comes back to break it up. Rudo beatdown. Euforia legdrops Angel de Oro on the back of the head. Shocker takes the senton de la muerte. UG suplexes Thunder, and Niebla seems to come up short on the splash, but connects enough for the pin. Announcers announce the end of the fall, then remember Shocker is captain. It doesn't go much longer.

2: Rudos continue beatdown. Thunder ducks a double clothesline (???) and Angel de Oro is a couple beats late with the follow up springboard dropkick. Niebla elbow drops Angel de Oro's shadow, which proves to be ineffective. Rudos do get it back together long enough for Thunder to look the very opposite of smooth in a double team spot with Angel de Oro. Guerrero out, Oro moonsault, Thunder takes some time setting up and does a tope con giro to the floor on Ultimo Guerrero. Impressive, though it took so long that Angel de Oro was already back up on the ramp by the time he did it. Shocker submits Niebla to end it.

3: Thunder is too strong to be affected by UG's chops. Kicks are a problem. Thunder fights of wristlocks from Thunder and UG at the same time, and does a double headlock. That's at least amusing. Two man hiptoss works, two man chokeslam works as well. Niebla does not fare well in a chop battle, fainting his way out of it. Angel de Oro does a few headscissors, but does not do the Angel de Oro sequence. Shocker is unaffected by Niebla's chops. Maybe he needs to get those checked. Shocker appearing limping as he runs the ropes. He double cops Niebla out and lands his plancha from the middle rope. Other four in, Guerrero trip them up, and put on a camel clutch/gori stretch double submission for the win.

Announcers wrap it up.
