• Psychosis, Hector Garza, Damian, and El Dandy (LWO) defeated Chavo Guerrero, Jr., La Parka, Lizmark, Jr., Ciclope with Psychosis' Guillotine Leg Drop.
-A new twist was added to the LWO's entrance music, but basically similar to Eddie Guerrero's theme. The match turned out to be another face-paced, high-flying one. After La Parka surprisingly nailed his partners -- Damian and Ciclope -- with a chair, it let Psychosis execute the Guillotine Led Drop, for the LWO to take the win. Eddie Guerrero made his way down, and had La Parka join the LWO. Chavo Guerrero, Jr. and his hobby horse, Pepe, stayed in the ring for a while, but soon left.
