-Dario tells Castro to get plenty of rest “under covers” and then calls him a rat.
WINNER and STILL Lucha Underground Champion: Matanza
-Joey Ryan and Dario have a good laugh at the expense of Cortez. Son of Havoc comes in and says Mascarita Segrada wants a match with Famous B. Dario says the winner of Havoc’s match with Dr. Wagner gets to pick the stipulation of the match. Dario says he doesn’t “half ass” anything.
-Prince Puma comes out and challenges Mil Muertes to a GRAVE Consequences Match. Catrina accepts. Mil tries a sneak attack but Puma thwarts him.

-After some exchanges, Rey gets Chavo in the 619 position and hits the splash for the win.
WINNER: Rey Mysterio
-If you know me, this is my reaction:
OVERALL: This was actually a really fun show. Despite my constant bashing of Chavo, he put on a good match with Rey. They kept to basics and didn’t have any flash which is absolutely fine. The false finish was well done. And the two other matches were fine. And Dario Cueto was at peak form tonight with his jokes and one liners. Good show.
