That Konnan guy was quite the star. This is a nice match to show how hot AAA was at this point in time. The entrances were excellent. The match is a big spectacle, which might as well have been under tornado rules, because everyone is in the whole time. There's nothing really remarkable about this, but it's really fun. Perfectly acceptable main event.

The Ultimate Konnan Von Erich Warrior ruled. Santo was Santo, Eddies top rope dive was sweet. Everything esle was good.

If there was ever a wrestler that deserved being scalped it’s Konnan. He does a terrible job of selling punches to his ribs. What a crappy powerslam by Konnan. I was hoping for a Guerrero turn where he kicked Konnan in the nuts. Drive train starts and Caras cuts off Konnan and then kicks him in the nuts! I’m totally a fan.

Konnan kind of sucks, and his grass-skirt/tassle entrance gear is ludicrous, but his charisma is still off the charts. He does some really weird selling, sometimes taking crazy bumps for routine moves and then he can't/won't sell punches. Still, the other five guys pick up the slack from a work standpoint. Los Hermanos Dinamitas cream the babyfaces before the bell and put Santo away with an awesome triple-team submission--basically Caras does a gogoplata while the other two lock on half crabs. I want to see that for an Undertaker+partners-vs.-Shield 6-man. Konnan is about to join in on a dive train when Caras intercepts him with a jumping knee, then kicks him low to draw the decisive DQ. Really fun match--where did Caras & co. get the reputation as bad workers? Caras hasn't been anything less than awesome from what I've seen.

The heels dominate the first fall working over Eddy pretty well before triple pinning Santo.  Casas doing yeoman's work as a heel there, adding in little touches like blocking the ref from seeing Santo tag Konnan and then taunting him after the fact.  Konnan was over like a boss here.  Just an absolute star to these fans.  Loved Santo's plancha in the third.  Caras low blows Konnan for a DQ in the 3rd fall to further their feud.  I remember heading how heated this was at the time but it hasn't felt that way going back through the matches yet.  Just not as hateful and urgent as you'd want about of a blood feud. 

 

**3/4

I was kind of disappointed in this. I don't expect much from Konnan but Santo and Eddy seemed perfectly content to just hang out and do the bare minimum. Match was fine but this felt like more of a crowd pleasing match to pop the crowd than to have next level action. **1/2

Other than not being able to tell the difference between Mascara Ana and Universo, I recognized everyone, which is definitely a plus in these bouts. That said, this was more of a six-man battle royal than a tag team match, and that hurt it for me.

 

The dives toward the end were insane; someone's going to either break their backs or knock their brains out on the safety railing if they keep trying to top each other like that.

 

This is the first time I've seen Caras without his mask. It's too bad he's a rudo; he could really be a matinee-idol face with his good looks.

 

This is one of the few times we actually see the two-referee system influence a decision; I'm fairly sure that they conferred before disqualifying Caras for kinking Konnan low.
