Kid Kash & Gunner vs. “Mexican Warrior” Chavo Guerrero Jr. & “Super Mex” Hernandez
Hernandez is sporting some new gear adorned in the “Super Mex” logo. Kash & Gunner jump Chavo & MEx at the bell and get things kicked off. Gunner is sporting a bandage over his right eye from an injury he suffered at a live show. Chavo catches Gunner with a dropkick and then hits Kash with the Three Amigos! Chavo springs to the top but Gunner knocks him off and the heels go to work on Chavo. They whip Chavo into the ropes and connect with a Double Shoulder Block for an early nearfall. Kash tags back in and chokes Chavito on the middle rope and then nails him with repeated right hands. Gunner back in and he catapults Chavo into the ropes as Chavo was lying underneath them for another nearfall. Kash comes back in and the heels hit a Slingshot Double Suplex on Chavo and Kash goes to work on the crowd taunting them. Kash gets a couple of nearfalls on the 3rd generation superstar and then whips him into the ropes but eats a Spinning Headscissors Takeover from Chavo! Gunner clotheslines Chavo from the apron and then Kash pretty much crotches Chavo on the bottom rope before tagging Gunner back in. The heels whip Chavo into the ropes and Gunner catches him with a clothesline. Gunner gets a nearfall and then puts Chavo in a headlock. Gunner tosses Chavo into the ropes and connects with a big backdrop for another nearfall. Kash tags back in and hits a series of strikes and then gets the referee to turn his head and look at Mex so Kash can kick Chavo in the balls. Kash hits a Snapmare Takeover and then locks in an Armbar. Gunner back in (no tag as the referee was dealing with Mex trying to save his partner) and the heels double team Chavo in their corner. Gunner stands on Chavo’s head and tags Kash back in. Kash taunts Chavo and then pokes him in the eyes as Chavo tried to fight out of the corner. Kash hits Chavo with kicks and chops and then puts him in a Camel Clutch. Chavo is able to stand up on his feet getting Kash on his shoulders and drops him with an Electric Chair Drop! Chavo almost reaches Hernandez but Kash stops him and tags in Gunner who drops an Elbow on Chavo as Kash held onto Chavo. Gunner tags Kash right back in and holds Chavo as Kash kicks away at him. Kash and Chavo exchange strikes but then as Chavo went for a dropkick Kash stops and then Catapults Chavo into the corner. Chavo lands on the corner and moonsaults off but Kash ducks underneath him. Chavo lands on his feet and then Kash & Chavo clothesline each other! Hernandez tags in and nails Kash with a series of clotheslines! Mex whips Kash into the ropes and sends him clear across the ring with a Shoulder Block! Gunner comes in and goes after Mex but Mex destroys him with a Shoulder Block as well! Hernandez tosses Kash across the ring with a Hip Toss and then a Splash in the corner! Hernandez hits the CTM Slam but Gunner breaks up the pin! Hernandez nails the heels with a Double Clothesline as he came off the ropes! Gunner slides out to the floor and Mex dives over the top with the SUPER MEX DIVE! Chavo tagged Mex as he dove! Hernandez hits a Slingshot Shoulderblock onto Kash and then Chavo dives off the top with the Frog Splash for the pin!
