In the ring, El Hijo del Fantasma came out to celebrate his victory, before Maverick quickly joined him in the ring. Once inside, Maverick congratulated El Hijo del Fantasma on the win, saying that he truly earned it. However, Maverick did say that he wanted another shot at the title if that would be okay with El Hijo, to which the latter accepted. Before the two could do more, though, they were interrupted by the duo of masked individuals who had been seen kidnapping various superstars over the last couple of months.

Maverick and El Hijo del Fantasma got set to defend themselves, but Maverick was swiftly betrayed, as El Hijo del Fantasma delivered a headbutt to Maverick before the two masked men assaulted him. During the assault, the two men unmasked to reveal themselves as Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde, and shortly after, El Hijo del Fantasma took his own mask off to reveal himself as Santos Escobar. Now unmasked, Escobar said that he was the champion, and that he could not be touched, before both Mendoza and Wilde delivered two vicious frog splashes to Maverick.
