April 3, 1999
Tijuana, Mexico

An unnamed ring announcer welcomes us to the debut show of South Of The Border Wrestling. It is announced that participants for tonights matches have been selected based off brackets for the upcoming tag tourney.

Two-out-of-three-Falls Match:
Mach 3, Gravity Racer and Hijo de X-51 beat Los Pentiums (Pentium I, Pentium II and Pentium III) 2 falls to 1:
x Pentium III beat Mach 3 via the Gigabyte Bomb in 0:10:58
x Mach 3 beat Pentium I via disqualification in 0:13:54
x G-Racer beat Pentium III via disqualification in 0:21:02
Rating: ** 1/2

Gravity Racer is a cliff diver, Hijo de X-51 is doing a sci-fi gimmick, and Los Pentiums are what you get when you cross Los Villanos with a Wierd Al Yankovic song. The flyers vs brawlers thing works well for Los Pentiums but they get DQed for not releasing a choke. Pentium III later tries to pull off Mach 3's mask, prompting referee Baby Antonio to pull off Pentium III and get KOed for trying to enforce the rules. Pedro Guapo runs in shortly thereafter to try to keep things going, but Antonio revives and DQs the Pentiums. Crowd was pretty into it.

Two-out-of-three-Falls Match:
Los Balisticos (American Psycho and Crazy Ivan) and Caos beat
Los Maniacos Bus Boys Club (Miguel Rosas and Cesar Lozano) and Tinebla Guerrera 2 falls to 0:
x Ivan beat Tinebla via a moonsault in 0:02:49
x Caos beat Lozano via a powerslam in 0:11:56
Rating: *** 1/2

Rosas and Lozano are a couple of young guys from Mexicali who used to bus tables by day and wrestle by night when they did indy gigs in Tijuana. Tinebla Guerrera is doing the lucha version of Shadow Maxx. The rudos are generic crazy guys. Rudos get lots of heat because this is in Tijuana and Los Maniacos are major babyfaces, but sweep the match although Lozano got a big pop for kicking out of a Chaos Theory.

Two-out-of-three-Falls Match:
Los Canadians (Rob Bihari and Colin MacKinnon) and Rob Vincent beat
Los Ratoncitos (Poderoso Raton and Speedy Gonzalez) and Pikachu 2 falls to 0:
x Bihari beat Speedy via spinning headscissors in 0:12:34
x Bihari beat Pika via a springboard moonsault in 0:17:02
Rating: *** 3/4

Yeah, three rats. Well, we know who the local comedy wrestlers are. A couple of Canadian unknowns without masks come out and the crowd is unsure of how to react until they introduce their surprise third member...Rob Vincent! Okay, so they were still unsure of how to react at that point but then tres gringos start mocking the crowd and their opponents stupid gimmicks and that settles that. Great part of the match sees Vincent put Poderoso Raton in the Swankinator for what seems like forever but and he keeps briefly blanking out but keeps coherent enough not to submit. Crowd gets behind him and he finally powers out and starts destroying Vincent but then the the rudos start cheating like crazy to kill the comeback. And referee Hernan Guerrero conviently keeps missing the cheating. Interesting occurance after the match as while the rudos walk to the back to boos, somebody ambushes them from the shadows. Bihari gets a guitar broken over his head and the mysterious attacker runs off before anyone can get a good look at him.

Two-out-of-three-Falls Match:
Los Super Kings (Super King I, Super King II and Super King III) beat
Team Ultra (Ultra MEGA and Ultra MAX) and El Bombastico 2 falls to 1:
x MAX beat SK II via a nerve hold in 0:05:48
x SK I beat MAX via the Super King Rana in 0:12:39
x SK I beat Bombastico via the Super King Rana in 0:16:33
Rating: ** 3/4

Super Kings are a bunch of generic faces who have trademark orange mist for when they get in a serious jam. Rudos are generic egomaniacs, with Ultra MEGA a gimmick successor to Mega and Super Mega. Contrary to some rumors, El Bombastico is NOT Bob Holly under a mask. Crowd was into it. Rudos tried and failed to make saves on both pinfalls they lost.

Rating: ** 1/2

Yes, your main event is 5 guys dressed like Pokemon against 5 guys who worship Rob Zombie. More questionable refing by Hernan Guerrero, especially a possible fast count on the first pinfall after a kick. The freaks got HUGE heel heat.
