EL HIJO DEL SANTO VS. HEAVY METAL
WWA Welterweight championship
The second of four televised title matches that Hijo del Santo and Heavy Metal wrestled in 1993. This one is spends less time on the mat than the first or third, which is not necessarily a negative. The extra mat wrestling of the first bout is replaced with additional flying, including several dives from Santo and a pair from Heavy Metal. Falls two and three are joined in progress, which makes it all the more confounding when an extraneous segment occurring outside of the match airs unedited. The match also features a wonky AAA-twist on a not uncommon lucha finish. The finish and the entire match have good heat. A good match overall, which features a pleasant mix of mat wrestling and high flying.
