WINNER and STILL Gift of the Gods Champion: El Dragon Azteca Jr.- They kept it mat based so Ivelisse didn’t have to look out of place trying to keep up with El Dragon. Decent match.

The ref calls for the bell as they brawl up the stairs.

Antonio Cueto comes out. He tells them both will fight for the Lucha Underground Championship next week in a triple threat match. So that’s all you need to do to get a match? They end up brawling to the back as Pentagon watches on.

Trios Championship: The Reptile Tribe (c) vs Fenix, Aerostar and Drago

Fenix comes out in all black, drooling like a brain dead zombie. Jake Strong comes out and says if they win the Trios Title tonight that they will have to defend the Titles against just him. Because he is a wrestler, and we all know wrestlers defeat luchadors every single time.

Jeremiah Crane charges all three men right at the bell. They then turn their focus to Drago as the heels work him over. Daga lands some slaps in the corner. Drago starts fighting back with some kicks. He goes to the top then lands on Daga who tosses him off but right into Jeremiah Snake where he hits a DDT.

Drago and Aerostar hit dives to the outside. Drago tags in Fenix, who once again takes his time in assisting Drago with a dive. Fenix gets ready for a dive but takes his time as Aerostar cheers him on. Aerostar ends up going for a dive but Fenix superkicks him. Fenix then leaves the ring and Snake hits a shoulder breaker for the win.

WINNERS and STILL Trios Champions: The Reptile Tribe- The whole story of the match was Feni being a dark zombie.
