After paying his entrance to the sounds of La Quinta Estacion's iconic theme "Me Muero" and getting a tribute from Gabi Pereira, Salvador Lutheroth & Dinastica Karonte (Astro Boy Jr, Doctor Karonte I & Doctor Karonte II), Mistico and Hiromu Takahashi had an intense and physical bout. Takahashi was close multiple times on winning the match, but Mistico managed to fight through and got Takahashi in "La Mistica" before locking in the trademark Fujiwara Arm Bar for the win on his big day.

After Takahashi & Mistico embrace, the CMLL Locker Room as well as special guests of the event Michael Oku, Amira Blair, Taiji Ishimori & Zack Sabre Jr joined in to celebrate the occasion. After posing for the picture celebrating the moment, Mistico thanked the fans and the CMLL staff for their support over the years. He stated the following:

"Thanks to you all, we have built two decades of Silver and Gold. Remember that you all are the best fans and behind me is the best roster in wrestling at both national and international levels, so thank you Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre. Thank you to this great family, from the cameramen, the referees, and the roster that joined Arena Mexico and CMLL. To everyone in the CMLL Offices, thank you. And once again, thank you to the best fans in the world and I ask for a round of applause for all of you. Thank you for filling up the arena & god bless you all. Thank you Arena Mexico."
