The show opened with a video package featuring the Aztec medallion winners, Sexy Star, and Mariposa.

Backstage: Dario was peaking through a ceiling when he was interrupted by Catrina. Catrina and Dario disputed the fight between Mil Muertes and Matanza, and Catrina requested a re-match. Dario said he was not afraid and Mil would get a re-match next week in a Grave Consequences match. Dario said they should raise the stakes by having four coffins instead of one. Catrina said after next week there would be no question as to who destroyed whom.

Title sequence rolled.

Announcers: Vampiro welcomed the crowd to the show. Matt Striker said tonight would be about the gift of the gods, because every match is for a medallion.

In-ring: Santos introduced Marty Martinez, who was already in the ring. His opponent tonight is The Mack.

Mack leaped onto Marty to start the match, then nailed three consecutive suplexes. Marty hit a dropkick, then pounded on Mack. Marty threw his shirt at Melissa Santos then stomped on Mack. Mack broke free to land a clothesline, kick, body slam, and leg drop. Mack hit a Stone Cold Stunner followed by a spinning stunner for the win.

Backstage: Catrina told King Cuerno that Muertes would get a re-match for the title. But, the one to make sure this happens will be her disciple. Cuerno said his match tonight is against the disciple for a medallion and he will win.

Sexy Star entered Dario’s office. Dario said he respects Sexy and he knows that something has happened to her because she has changed. Dario said he wants Star to inflict the same pain on Mariposa. He said when Mariposa screams “No mas,” he doesn’t want her to stop.

On the floor, Star threw Mariposa into the barricade then lodged a chair in between Mariposa’s leg and Star whacked another chair against it. Mariposa dragged Star up the stairs by her hair, then ripped at her mask. Star pushed Mariposa off a platform, then Star climbed up the platform towards the lighting rig. They both brawled on the scaffold. They both made their way down the scaffold and Marty Martinez crawled towards Star. He rubbed her head against the barricade.

Mack came out and took out Marty. Mariposa picked up Star and slammed her against the announce table. Star grabbed a garbage can and threw it against Mariposa. They continued the action in the ring and Mariposa locked in another submission. The ref asked Star and star said “F— you” multiple times. I had no idea she could say that, wow. Star tried to come back but Marty stopped her the Mack came in again to stop Marty. Star then locked in an armbar for the win.

WINNER: Sexy Star at 15:23 to win an Aztec medallion.

Post-match: Star locked in the arm bar again then threw Mariposa to the outside. Mack then handed her a medallion then celebrated with her.

FINAL THOUGHTS:  If you’re a big fan of the backstage segments from LU, this was the show for you as it was filled with lots of them. My girlfriend who has seen wrestling just a couple times before watched a small portion of the show, was quite disturbed by LU implying that Star was molested by Marty and Mariposa. She thought a storyline like that just does not work on a wrestling show because of how serious and difficult a topic that is. I personally despise the storyline, but the main event was good and the story was executed well. This still all could have been done just the same if you took out the implied molestation and made it something like Marty and Mariposa kept costing Star matches or they took her out with an injury. With all that aside, the main event was the best from Mariposa, who is still very green but came through tonight. They did a relatively safe “I quit match” that had no big spots that would really put the two in danger. They made the little things mean a lot.
