Perro Aguayo vs. Gran Hamada
Other: Lucha Libre in Japan
An overall good but heatless match from the second Japanese tour run by Hamada’s UWF. Both guys work hard and the match is worked like a showcase for Perro in that he spends most of the match on offense. The crowd was far less interested in this straight forward match and its long control segment than they were for the comedy/spot heavy matches earlier in the show. If you can block out the lack of heat, this is a good match with Perro in particular giving a strong performance.
Mascara año 2000 vs. Perro Aguayo
MASK VS. HAIR
Type: Mask vs. Hair
Other: Historical; Bloody
A monster of a match in terms of heat, drama, and overall presentation. Perro is old and it shows. Mascara Año 2000 is a mediocre at best wrestler and that shows, too. None of that really matters, however, as all of the necessary items for a big time memorable match are there: heat, drama, violence (blood), and major near falls. Far less smoke and mirrors were needed here relative a typical Undertaker WrestleMania match, but the overall concept of this same. The booking presses all of the right buttons and you won’t find many matches that are as memorable and gigantic as this match was.
