Death Triangle (Pac, Penta Oscuro & Rey Fenix) vs. The Butcher, The Blade & Marq Quen
Butcher now comes to the ring in sunglasses like Blade, so it seems that the monocle is gone forever. Death Triangle has the lights out before their entrance now.
Penta and Blade start off the match. Penta gets in Blade’s face and Blade fires back with a haymaker and they trade blows until Pac tags in. Pac holds Blade’s legs for Penta to hit a drop kick from the top in what Taz calls “Yam Bag Yahtzee”. Pac knocks his opponents off the apron and then goes after Blade with kicks.
