Show opens with Cage in Dario Cueto’s office, demanding that Cueto have Chavo Guerrero Jr. give him his Aztec Medallion back. Dario says that if Chavo comes out tonight and puts the medallion in the Gift of the Gods title belt, then its his, so Cage has to stop him.
In-ring segment with all 7 Aztec Medallion holders coming out and putting their medallions into the Gift of the Gods title belt. Chavo comes out and brawls with Cage, laying him out with a chairshot before putting the medallion in the title belt. Cage then comes back and lays out Chavo with Weapon X.
Daga def. Mascarita Sagrada w/Famous B and Brenda, Argenis and Kobra Moon by pinfall after Kobra lets him win when she hits Sagrada with a Fire Thunder Driver.

Killshot def. Marty the Moth by pinfall with the JML Driver. Afterwards, Marty lays out Killshot and grabs Killshot’s dog tags.
Main Event for the Gift of the Gods Title: Chavo Guerrero Jr. def. Texano Jr., Joey Ryan, The Mack, Sinestro del Muerte, Sexy Star and Aerostar to win the title after he pinned Ryan when Cage ran in and laid out everyone, including Ryan with a Steiner Screwdriver. Afterwards, Cage says he and Chavo will face off next week for the Gift of the Gods Title.
Backstage vignette closes the show of Vampiro torturing Pentagon Jr. in his temple, where he has Pentagon tied up and hits him with a kendo stick and a barbed wire bat, saying that he must break Pentagon to make Pentagon strong and that the beating here is nothing compared to what Matanza did to Pentagon. Show closes.
