The announcers give a recap of some of the other matches that aired on this episode as they close the show. The rudos and tecnicos continue to go back and forth brawling while the show is coming to an end.
SHOW THOUGHTS: Well the good thing is that this footage exists even if we only get about 10-12 minutes of the tag match but it would have been cool to have seen the entire show. Lots of brawling in these matches as they were building up a couple of rivalries with the tag match leading to a Samurai Shiro vs. El Satanico singles match. Main event saw the rudos control the bulk of the match. The tecnicos comeback in the 2nd fall was really good with the three dives to the outside.
