Hijo del Santo & Villano III vs Pegasus Kid & Negro Casas
19 January, 2002
Toreo Cuatros Caminos; Naulcalpan, Mexico
This match is from 1992. It is very sloppy by today's standards. However, by 1992 standards, this was just plain ol' non-stop action.
UWA came and went before I ever saw a lucha libre match, so I have no context for the style of the match. I do know that for a big main event type of tag match, this seems to go short. Benoit is taking full speed crisp bumps, while the native Mexicans are rolling thru most things - a testament to Benoit having things drilled into him at the New Japan dojo.
I totally expected a more technical match here, so I was disappointed that it was just a wild brawl. I dunno if it was editing or the UWA style, but it was really hard to tell when one fall ended and the next began.
