[1994-02-13-AAA-Sin Limite] El Hijo del Santo & Angel Azteca vs Psicosis & Fuerza Guerrera

Recommended Posts

Guadalajara feels like the Fort Worth, Texas of lucha libre -- a brown tinge to everything and a little off the beaten path.

 

The rudos unmask Santo and he runs away from the ring, leaving Azteca to fend for himself and making him easy prey for a pinfall in the first fall.

 

The second fall has Fuerza and Psicosis enjoying their advantage for a few minutes before Santo makes his triumphant comeback and seeks revenge. Psicosis gets thrown around ringside like a ragdoll and eats a few chairshots for his troubles while Azteca and Fuerza battle it out in the ring.

 

Santo goes nuts and drags Psicosis around the ring by his mask, which gets a huge reaction from the crowd.

 

Psicosis ends up running away in shame, but comes back vowing for revenge. He looks really odd with no horns on his mask. I presume this is all to set up their singles match a few days later.

 

Lots of fun, but too short, and more angle-driven than a match, really.

Yep, Psicosis' mask threw me off here without the horns. I'm not the biggest Lucha fan. This was alright but seemed too short. The long crowd shots get annoying.

This is really a match to set up an angle. It was good and fun while it lasted. The masks getting ripped off was a cool way to transition through falls. Ready for Santo-Psicosis now.

Too much action to comprehend--the rudos jump the technicos before the fall and are disqualified in record time. By the time the "PRIMERA CAIDA" graphic goes on the screen the fall is already over. Santo has his mask ripped off and he retreats to the back, leaving Azteca to the wolves. Fuerza makes sure to boot him in the groin before pinning him, even though it's 2-on-1, just because. Glorious. Jesse Ventura would absolutely be frothing at the mouth about Santo leaving if he were on the call. Santo makes his way back for the third fall and the comeback brawl on Santo's part is one of the most heated lucha brawl exchanges you'll ever see. Psicosis absolutely gets slaughtered, and suffers the same fate as Santo re: his mask. Fuerza gets double-teamed and pinned, Psicosis gets counted out, and his post-match return proves futile. Santo makes noise about a mascara contra mascara afterward, but I don't think we'll be at that point for a long while. Basically impossible to rate as a match but an excellent angle and set-up for a feud. Santo could have used this, as the endless Heavy Metal series was beginning to stifle him.
