Pretty good match but nothing you haven't seen before. Except that double springboard moonsault with Rey's knees smacking into Dragon's body--YEEOWCH. Same finish as WW3--lack of creative finishes for such a dynamic worker might well be Rey's single biggest weakness of this time period.

Like it's been said : the WW3 match without the matwork to ground Mysterio building to the spots. But hey, what they do is so good that it's still a very good match. One big difference, Ultimo does the Majistral pin attempt early on as it's really over in Japan. Yep, Rey was kinda formulaic against the same opponents while touring, as showed by his matches with Dragon or Psychosis. But hey, so was Ric Flair, and Rey was so much in advance in term of prime flying offense that he didn't need more while working in front of new audiences.
