We then go over to Leonard F. Chikarason for an exclusive update. Due to the circumstances around their loss of the Campeones de Parejas, F.I.S.T. (Icarus and Gran Akuma) will be granted a Campeonatos de Parejas title shot whenever they see fit, regardless of how many points they hold at the time. We then go back to Mike Quackenbush to give us finisher Number 8: “Partly Cloudy with a chance of Cheech, as performed by Cheech and Cloudy. Number 7 is “Quackendriver II” as performed by Mike Quackenbush. He then throws us to the first exclusive match on the Pod Per View.

Guerrera headscissors him to the floor, then hits a slingshot Frankensteiner on the floor. Hero Regalplexes Dorado. He holds Dorado for Claudio. Claudio accidentally chops Hero. This leads to a series of miscommunications between the Kings, usually with assistance from Dorado and Guerrera. Guerrera and Dorado get the win with stereo huracanrana’s at 8:38. The Lucha team was very over and Hero and Claudio were game to be the large, American Rudos. It was a combination that worked very well. **½
