Most of these matches will be under "Australian rules", which means two things:

(a) it's best 2 out of 3 falls,
(b) each team has a captain, and a fall is scored when you pin/submit either the captain or _both_ of the non-captains

This is confusing! Go with it! You'll work it out, and it doesn't matter too too much anyway in a lot of these early matches.

(Ooops, forgot the spoiler tag before.)

Next up is Rey Cometa vs Stigma in a relampago (or lightning) match. This is only for a single fall and has a ten minute time limit, so expect a lot of action.

Rey Cometa: white face paint
Stigma: red/black mask
