[1995-07-08-AAA] El Hijo del Santo & Octagon & Rey Misterio Jr & La Parka vs Pentagon & Jerry Estrada & Psicosis & Fuerza Guerrera

Recommended Posts

I have by far enjoyed AAA in 1995 more than I have any other year so far. This is another excellent match of many. It's easy for them to run together because there were so many strong matches involving the same participants in such a short time span, so I'll focus on what makes this one stand out. First, there's Fuerza doing his endless bag of tricks. I especially love when Psicosis and Fuerza get into it, and Fuerza ends up punching him and kicking him while he's down before cooler heads prevail. There's also Fuerza tricking Octagon into thinking they're friends so he can sucker punch him. There's bringing a chair into the ring. Really, this is a big rudos performance more than anything. Estrada sort of gets in the way, but the other three are really good. I always enjoy a good mask being tied to ring ropes. While the other matches had more of a rhythm and flow, this one downplays that a little and is more about rudo-generated chaos. There is some awesome stuff at the end where Fuerza gets his mask turned around and beats up the referee and his own partners.

I didn't like this that much. Not a awful match but a usual AAA main for the time. Parka had some good comedy and Fuerza was pretty good. Of course, Estrada has to take the craziest bump into the crowd.

This was quite the war, with a very shine-heat-comeback style layout across each fall. There have been previous AAA matches with greater babyface comebacks than this, but this was quite a performance by the rudos, and it's hard to complain about a match with this much blood, hate, violence, and mask-tearing. Fuerza getting mask turned around...I'm torn on that, actually. It's a well-done comedy spot, but I don't think it came at a good point in the match, as by that point this was all about a hate-filled war and asskicking rudos and I think things sort of retrogressed to be going back to stooge comedy. That said, it was certainly effective, and Fuerza creaming Tirantes with a big boot gets the biggest pop of the match.
