Year: 2015
Type: Maestro

Synopsis:

It is always a treat to when we get to see a maestro style match that does not involve the usual participants. Here it is IWRG mainstay Avisman that provides the welcomed diversity. Avisman is the clear underdog in this match. Positioning Avisman as the underdog helps this match avoid descending into a meaningless exchange of holds and mat wrestling. There is something at stake – Avisman’s big opportunity to show he can hang with someone of Virus’ caliber – that is palpable throughout the contest. One of the best mat-based matches of 2015.

(02/09/2014) El Dandy vs. El Satanico (Monterrey)

Year: 2014

Synopsis:

For his 2014 retirement tour (a retirement that he largely stuck to minus a few sporadic appearances), El Dandy wrestled his career-long adversary in different locations across Mexico. This was the Monterrey portion of the tour. It was also the mat work heavy match of the series (at least based on whats available in full or clip form online). Overall, this is a good maestro match but it is definitely enhanced by nostalgia. There is something special about watching two guys wrestle a good match almost a quarter of a century after they wrestled their most famous matches against one another.
