ULTIMO DRAGON VS. JAVIER CRUZ
Ultimo Dragon’s second televised UWA title defense of 1993 is a solid but entirely unremarkable one. Dragon’s high spots are not impressive enough for him to get by on those alone, which ended up being the story of his career. Javier Cruz is no Negro Casas and wasn’t up to the task of forcing Dragon out of his usual comfort zone. The result is Ultimo Dragon doing Ultimo Dragon stuff while Javier Cruz works a basic hold-counter hold match around all of that. Not as good as the Emilio Charles title defense, mainly because Cruz is no Charles. Dragon made Friday night title defenses for Mocho Cota and Felino after this that would have been more interesting, but are not available as far as I am aware. Not missing anything if you skip this one.
