[2001-12-23-Monterrey] El Hijo del Santo vs La Parka

Recommended Posts

Nearly impossible to go wrong with a bloody lucha brawl. Many of them are formulaic, but it's a winning formula. This one is particularly famous because of the amount of blood and it's true, Santo's head leaves puddles of blood all around the place. Screwy finish but it's a really interesting twist. ****

Just watched this. I thought it was quite a fun match. You know when Park has the all white on against Santo we are going to get a lot of blood. The highlight is Park's control through the middle. The early start for Santo is solid, but the first pin comes a little too fast for my taste. The second fall felt a little more complete. Park had to work for it and they were all in on bloody brawl by this point. The final fall was good, but didn't quite hit the level of drama and urgency that separates a good lucha brawl from a great lucha brawl. I didn't mind that they worked some wrestling and grappling into the brawl a little, but it didn't add much and it really could have. I wasn't a huge fan of the finish. I could have done with out the screwiness, but it was likely fine or even good in the context of the match at the time.

I also gave it ****1/4.

 

 

What promotion is this?
