    El Texano

    Cad said: "Bullish wrestler who could work tecnico or rudo, one of the most skilled guys of his era. He probably doesn't have the matches (I think there are two Texano one vs one matches on video), so you'd have to vote for him on skill or just how much you enjoy watching him. In the late '80s and early '90s he stands out pretty much every match he's in. The most famous part of his career (Misioneros de la Muerte) is barely represented on tape." Match Recs El Texano, El Dandy and Super Muñeco vs Atlantis, Angel Azteca and Blue Demon Jr. (March 24 1989) El Texano, Apolo Dantes and Mascara Sagrada vs Villano I, Villano IV and Villano V (April 20 1990) El Texano vs El Signo (January 12 1992)
  2. This is the predecessor to their match a week later. I had no idea this match even happened, gotta love the internet. This wasn't a classic like the rematch but still really good technical lucha action. Dandy choking out Azteca in the opening fall was a really cool way to start. Then, we get the usual classy exchanges throughout. Man I love old school lucha with the focus on simple hip throws, fireman carries and leg trips. Everyone is almost offended when Azteca throws a punch. Then, Chavo Sr. Proceeds to get heel heat for complaining about forearms. Great finish to the 2nd fall. 3rd was really good with Dandy almost knocking out Azteca with a dropkick and Texano hitting a brutal powerbomb. Loved the big Chavo suplex, too.
  3. Legendary match, atleast in my book. Just one of those battles I can watch, lean back and enjoy again and again. No rocket science here, just about 25 minutes of brilliant matwork and exchanges. The highlight obviously being the Dandy/Angel stuff to set up the title match. These two were always dynamite together. Dandy was in his shootstyle kickpads and meant business. Also a masterclass on punctuation and competitiveness: Typical spotfest/workrate driven matches tend to blend together and just build to bigger spots. Here, something as simple as a corner bump were treated as special and got big reactions depending on the momentum swing. Also, there was no standing there and just glueing moves together, people would dodge, bock and counterattack all throughout the match in meaningful ways. There is working spectacular exchanges and then there is working spectacular, logical, meaningful exchanges like here. I love how educated the crowd is, booing Dandy for throwing a clothesline, and how the rudos tease double teams, theatratically decide against it but then do it anyways. Also hey look it's Chavo in a lucha match!!!
