The show opens with Dragon Azteca Jr backstage at the temple. He is putting on his mask. He looks into the camera and says, "Tonight, I will fight with honor". " Just as you taught me". The camera pans and shows that Azteca is looking into his own locker. In it is a picture of the original Dragon Azteca. Just then, Chavo Guerrero can be heard in the background. He tells Azteca that tonight, he will not fight at all. Chavo attacks Azteca with his chair. He lays him out and tells Azteca that he is a punk kid who stole his chance at revenge. Chavo beats down Azteca with the chair some more. He then looks into the locker and sees the poster inside. It is a lucha libre poster with the original Chavo Guerrero vs the orginal El Dragon Azteca. Chavo Jr. points at it and says "My dad kicked Azteca's ass that night". As Chavo is walking away, Rey Mysterio Jr is entering the locker room. They stare at each other before Chavo leaves. Rey finds Dragon Azteca on the ground laid out and asks him if it was Pentagon Dark, who attacked him. Rey stops and ponders for a moment and then realizes that it was Chavo, that was responsible. Rey screams out his name and the scene ends.

Famous B & Dr. Wagner Jr w/Nurse Brenda vs Son of Havoc & Mascarita Sagrada
Famous B and his client are already in the ring as they are introduced. Son of Havoc and Mascarita Sagrada make a grand entrance. Down the aisle, Havoc rides in a motorcycle with a mini sidecar, that Sagrada is riding in with him. Funny entrance. The story behind this match is that Famous B fired Sagrada and dumped him as his client. Wagner and Famous B beat down Sagrada and Sagrada has enlisted Havoc's help. Havoc also had his championship opportunity stolen away from him by Wagner. So both Sagrada and Havoc have interest in getting payback.
Fun start to the match after the cool entrance. Both Havoc and Sagrada perform pescados on B and Wagner. They then do some cool tandem offense on the outside. Havoc tossing Sagrada in mid air and he lands on Famous and hits a huracanrana. The babyfaces control the early portion of this match. Eventually, Dr. Wagner turns things around when he hits Sagrada with a big boot and follows that with a sit out power bomb. Sagrada is able to kick out. The "believers" in the temple start chanting Famous B's phone number at him. Except they change it to 423-YOU-SUCK!...... The heels stay in control, double teaming Sagrada. Wagner hits a brainbuster on the little guy. Somehow, someway Sagrada escapes and tags in Son of Havoc. Havoc is all fired up. He springs off the ropes with a handspring back elbow. He then springs off the ropes again on top of Wagner. Goes for the pin but Famous B breaks it up. Havoc is now alone in the ring with Famous B. Famous pleads with Havoc to be left alone. Havoc tags in Sagrada who begs to get his revenge on him. Sagrada hits a firemen's carry on Famous and then sets him up for Havoc to jump off the ropes onto him. But Wagner pushes Havoc off of the top rope. This takes Havoc out of the equation. Then, both Wagner and Famous B take turns beating down Sagrada. Wagner spikes him with a slam and then tags in B. B pulls out a stethoscope and pins Sagrada with it.
