Ultimo Dragon, Solar & Ultraman vs. Black Terry, Negro Navarro & Mascara Año 2000 Jr.
1 January, 2011
Arena Neza; Nezahualcoyotl, Mexico
Part 2 Part 3
About a year or so ago Black Terry Jr. posted a ridiculously awesome match from a small indy lucha show featuring Solar, Ultimo Dragon, and Blue Panther against Negro Navarro, Black Terry and Villano 4. Aside from the awesomeness of seeing Panther go one-on-one with Navarro, everyone seemed to bring their working boots that night, and after the match money was thrown in the ring, fans rushed ringside for autographs, and I knew all was right in the world. I was hoping for something similar with this.
It was not as good. Damn me and my expectations.
What we have here is a match with one guy who just doesn't look like he can "go" anymore (Ultraman), one guy who doesn't quite fit in with the others' class as a worker (Mascara 2000 Jr.), and four guys who can all pretty much still go (Terry, Navarro, Solar, Dragon). When these four are paired off with each other during the match, it is pretty damn good. Solar/Navarro always bring the goodness against each other, and there are a few really good exchanges between Navarro and Dragon. Terry kinda has clean-up duty in the match, as he is paired off with Ultraman most of the time, so he kinda just bumps his ass off for him and keeps things simple. When he is paired off with Dragon it isn't really too bad, but Dragon just kinda dominates Terry.
All-in-all, this is a pretty short match, and it does nothing to offend, but isn't as awesome as it could have been.
