*Promo Video: Long video to recap the fued between Chessman and Mesias. Mesias will make Chessman pay for turining his back on his fans. However, Chessman calls him a liar, who just tunred on many people during his past. Chessman will prove that he is champion material, but Mesias says he will destroy the heartless Chessman for the mexican people.
*In-Ring Segment: Mesias tells Chessman the time has come for Chessman to pay for his sins. Chessman turned his back on the fans and the company, but Mesias will make sure this is Chessman's last match. Mesias says Chessman just messed with the wrong person, in the wrong moment. Mesias claims he is now Mexican, whether Chessman likes it or not. This leads to......
5) AAA World Heavyweight Championship (Steel Cage w/Barb Wire)
Mesias (c) vs. Chessman
-Only fall: Chessman immediately attacks Mesias after he was done talking. The top of the cage is covered in barb wire, so they basically want the match to end in pinfall or submission. Tons of fast paced moves on this match from both men. Mesias uses a chair to hit Chessman's head. Chessman mesk the comeback, after Mesias crashes head first with the cage. Chessman now uses the chair to punish Mesias' abs. huge dropkick by Mesias on Chessman with the chair. Chessman tries a Moonsault, but he got caught with the barb wire on top. Chessman now uses the fallen barb wire as a weapon to hurt Mesias. Chessman tries to escape the cage, but Mesias stops him. Mesias hits a Crossbody off the top rope, but Chessman kicks out. The Secta guys hand Chessman a bottle, and he spits red mist on Mesias. Chessman spears Mesias through a table, but Mesias still kicks out. The cage door opens, and Mesias escapes, but Chessman hits another spear, and both land in another table. The Legion arrives to attack Mesias. The tecnicos also arrives to help Mesias. Aerostar even climbs the top of the cage and jumps off to take everyone out. You can see Rivera bald, so they spoiled the hair match already. Back in the cage, Mesias kicks out one more time. Chessman smashes large lightbulb on Mesias' legs. Mesias also grabs another lightbulb to smash it on Chessman's back. Chessman uses the cage door to attack Mesias, so that means escaping the cage is not a way to win. Both men climb the top of the cage again, Chessman hans on to the small plate on top of the cgae, but Mesias also gets there. Mesias throws Chessman off the top, and he lands in the table inside the ring. Mesias covers Chessman, and it's over!
Winner and STILL champion: Mesias
-Aftermath: Mesias celebrates with his fans, but the Legion returns to attack him. BAD MEDICINE!!!!!!!!!!! DR. WAGNER JR. HAS ARRIVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FINAL COMMENTS: Overall, a good show. The RdR matches were quite decent and acceptable. For those of you wondering, this was Abismo Negro's last TV match, so I guess the company will acknowledge his death on the next show, or the one after. The cage match was entertaining, but a little too long. The RdR finals will take place next week in th second part.
The arrival of Dr. Wagner Jr. was quite a good surprise (when I found out about it, and it wasn't during this show). The question is "How long will he last here?", because Wagner has a big attitude. but it will give the company new feuds, and new matches. But it should be interesting to see if he has any interaction with his brother Silver King. Next week, I'll talk about the jump of Marco Corleone and the return of Juventud Guerrera.
