We begin in the temple with a mariachi band playing to the crowd. Cortez Castro is in the ring with a kendo stick and Antonio Cueto talks how Castro is not even his real name and that he is a police officer. Antonio said he wants to report a homicide, but doesn’t want to call it a murder but a sacrifice. Out comes Matanza Cueto and the match begins.

Castro hits Matanza with the kendo stick as the bell rings but Matanza is unaffected. Matanza throws Castro around the ring, hits Wrath of the Gods and gets the pin.
Official Result: Matanza Cueto defeats Cortez Castro
Ivelisse vs. Joey Ryan: Winner gets an Ancient Aztec medallion for the Gift of the Gods championship:
Ryan starts off by putting his lollipop in his trunks. Ivelisse slaps Ryan and Ryan pushes Ivelisse to the mat. Ryan then lifts his opponent and rubs Ivelisse’s face with his chest. Ivelisse chops Ryan, then goes for a springboard hip toss and then a hurricanrana to get the momentum for a brief moment. Ryan hits Ivelisse upstairs and then Ryan goes for multiple consecutive pin attempts and Ivelisse kicks out each time. Ryan has Ivelisse in a crossface, Ivelisse gets out and then goes for a submission similar to Antonio Inoki’s Manji-Gatame. Ryan gets out of the ring, but when Ivelisse runs towards him, Ryan returns and superkicks her for a two-count.
