(Match Relampago) Akuma vs Hijo del Signo
They start this match fighting. No grappling here. They come out the gate hitting each other with corner strikes. Signo gets the better of the exchanges. Akuma gets some off hanging Signo in the tree of woe and hitting a drop kick. It goes to the outside and Signo kicks Akuma and then goes back in the ring and hits a middle rope dive. Camorra interferes which causes Signo to be the winner. Yago comes out to help and now Signo is clarifying via promo that they will have a hair and mask vs hair and mask match. So I wonder if these undercard guys will main event a show? Signo wins via DQ.
Winner: Hijo Del Signo
