3. Averno (captain),
Mephisto Dragon Rojo Jr. & Ephesto def. Mistico (captain), Valiente & La Sombra
Fall #1: Mistico hit Averno with a rana on the floor after going over the top rope, which allowed Ephesto to pin La Sombra after a back breaker and Dragon Rojo Jr. to roll up Valiente.
Fall #2: Mistico takes out Averno with a plancha, allowing La Sombra to pin Ephesto with a split legged moonsault and Valiente submit Dragon Rojo Jr.. The odds of a finish between Mistico, Averno, and Mistico’s mask go up dramatically at this point…
