All three wrestlers hit forearms to each other.

Cage brings Muertes to the outside again and has him in a fireman’s carry, but Muertes fights out and hits a clothesline on Cage. Muertes brings out a steel chair and Cage superkicks the chair to Muertes’ face. Cage bodyslams Muertes on the outside. Pentagon appears from the crowd and kicks Cage upstairs, takes the chair and hits Cage with it. Muertes brings Cage to the ring and spears him, followed by a flatliner. Muertes gets the three-count and wins the match.

Katrina refuses to step into the ring for her usual lick of death and walks away.
Pentagon said Cage shouldn’t be sad for losing the match because they will fight for the title next week and that just like Aztec Warfare, Pentagon will walk away the champion and in the end, Cage will have his arm broken into little pieces.
As we’re about to end the show, we see the Rabbit Tribe minus Mascarita Sagrada (Paul London, Mala Suerte and Saltador) hanging in a black and white room until Sagrada arrives to lead them to Killer Kross. Kross commands London to kill the man that led them to Kross and so London kills Sagrada with Kross’ wooden staff.
