In terms of great wrestling followed by stupid run-ins, this match feels like a pro-shot version of the March match. There is some outstanding stuff here. In a ... surprising moment, the heels are holding Rey in a Jesus-like position with handcuffs while Juventud hits him over the head with a tree branch. Finally, Konnan comes out dressed as a monk in an American flag to make the save. Oh, pro wrestling.

 

Still, I wish they could have just left these two alone, as they were doing fine without all this.

The finish was well executed but man it still pissed me off. Action before was pretty awesome but I still think I prefer the ECW match between these two for spots and violence. Rey does a great babyface comeback and has the crowd going when he wins here. ***3/4

I was thinking that this surpasses the February ECW match to be the best Rey/Juvy match of the year so far until the interference. It still might be, but the interference was totally superfluous and just letting them work the finish would have been a lot better. Less purely exhibitiony than some of their other matches, worked more competitively and even some emphasis on selling, with all their spots still looking great.
