Alex Koslov & Marco Corelone--


Stuka Jr. replaced Valiente in the first block. Valinete was announced as Rey Bucanero's partner and ended up in the second bracket instead. His partner was originally scheduled to be Mistico, but he was pulled from the tournament to work the main event of the 01/18 show instead. Super Nova replaced him. La Mascara was originally listed as Ultimo Dragon's partner, which would've given him two spots in the tournament. Flash was announced as the actual partner before the show.

Sagrado was hurt in his quarterfinal match and would not have been able to continue if his team had won.
