Match Notes:
After being the final two in the 30 man battle royal, El Santo and DiBiase got to go one on one this week. El Santo even surprised the fans by announcing that he was so confident that he’d defeat the upstart DiBiase, that he’d wager his mask against DiBiase’s FCCW Four Corners Championship. After unsuccessfully facing DiBiase, El Santo unmasked in the center of the ring, while DiBiase mockingly sat in a chair in the corner laughing and mocking the fallen legend as the show went off the air.
