(10/18/1996) Negro Casas vs. Bestia Salvaje (CMLL)

NEGRO CASAS VS. Bestia Salvaje

Year: 1996
Type: Hair vs. Hair
Other: n/a


This hair match serves as a bridge in the Santo/Casas feud, cementing Casas’ tecnico status and setting the scene for Santo to return and side with the rudos (including Salvaje) in a few weeks. The match itself is rather basic and straightforward, with the a couple of quick rudo controlled falls to start things out. The hook to this match is how into Casas the fans are. He milks his comeback and the fans are with him every step of the way. It is clear watching this match (and the entire feud actually) that Casas being over as his adversary was the least of the issues with Santo’s rudo turn. The third fall is fun even if it is not outstanding. There is no blood and the drama level is somewhere in the middle relative to other hair matches, but the match is easy to watch and and Casas’ babyface performance is outstanding.
