vulcano vs. misterioso vs. huichol
Hair vs. mask vs. hair
Type: Hair vs. Mask vs. Hair
The version of this match that is (or was) on YouTube has a lot of clipping going on. The clipping appears to just cutting out the down time in between moves more than anything else but even then we are missing some significant time. The 10/18/1993 edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter lists the three-way portion as 4:07 and the apuesta match at 10:29. Both of those matches combined are less than ten minutes in the online version. From what’s there, both parts of the match – but more so the one-on-one portion – appear to be decent, high energy matches but its difficult to get a real grip on the quality. This is more of a high impact apuesta match as opposed to a violent run, but there are some quality double teams early and impressive offense from Misterioso late.
Wrestling Observer Newsletter Recap (October 19, 1993)
10/9 television show was weak, although the Misterioso-Vulcano mask vs. hair match was good. It started as a triangular match involving Huichol and the two men pinned first would be in the match involving their hair or mask. Huichol and Vulcano kept pounding on Misterioso and pinned him at 4:07. As Vulcano was celebrating his pin, Huichol gave him a low blow and pinned him in six seconds. The stip match went 10:29 and had a strong storyline. Vulcano ripped off Misterioso’s mask, and he ran to the dressing room and came back wearing a new mask. Every time he got a near fall, heel ref Tirantes would slow count him and count normal speed when Vulcano had the pin. Vulcano was mad because he wanted fast counts. Then for the finish, Misterioso got a sunset flip and Tirantes fast-counted Vulcano out and he got his head shaved.”
Pirata Morgan vs. El Satanico vs. Jerry Estrada
Following their break up the previous week on AAA television, Pirata Morgan and El Satanico meet in a triangle match that also involves the catalyst for their split, Jerry “Puma” Estrada. The rules of lucha triangle matches differ from the rules of a typical three-way match from outside of Mexico. There are three stages. In the first, all three wrestlers are in the ring at the same time. One fall decides this stage. The wrestler that loses the fall “advances” to the third stage. In the second stage, the two remaining wrestlers go one-on-one for one fall. The winner of that stage is out of the match and would be considered the overall winner. The loser of the second stage faces the loser of the first stage in a best two out of three falls match. In other words, the entire thing consists of five falls: a one fall three way, a one fall singles match, and a two out of three falls singles match. This particular match is both entertaining and effective in setting up the next stage of the Morgan/Satanico feud.
