They work up the ropes and Sutter hits a neck breaker off the ropes for 2. Garza keeps fighting, scoring a near fall off of the O’Connor roll. Sutter hits the snap slam, but Garza picks up the pace again, hitting clotheslines and ripping his pants off and tosses then to Allie.

Tag Team Title Match: Champions LAX vs. oVe: This was taped at a CRASH show in Mexico. The match also included two other teams. We don’t get the full match; instead we get a clipped presentation. Homicie got involved, allowing LAX to win. It was a fine presentation, but disappointing that we didn’t get the full match, as it would have been something different.
