I loved the holds that they applied. It was almost all the kind of elaborate stuff that you'd see in black and white 1960s highlights, and yet they found a way to make it flow and come up with sweet counters. That headscissors hammerlock from Pantera was awesome. And then in the second fall they impressed me with the way that they made it clear that Fuerza was taking control (namely through Pantera's selling), while still working a fairly even fall in which Fuerza was in danger of letting things slip away. I honestly cannot think of anything that I'd change about the first two falls, that's how good they were. The third fall had some terrific spots and close calls, but I thought it went on a bit too long, as the nearfalls over the last few minutes didn't seem any more dramatic than the ones from the middle of the fall. Still, they were cool nearfalls. Agreed on how important the match felt by the end and how consistently good the work was.
There aren't a whole lot of matches showcasing Fuerza Guerrera, technician, and I think this is probably the best one for it. He looks like he has a funkier, older school style than most of his contemporaries. This is the kind of thing you'd use if you ever wanted to argue for Fuerza being the total package. Pantera was excellent too, which makes me wish he'd gotten more of a TV push during his career. I guess there wasn't much room at the time. Anyway, definitely one of the company's best matches of the year and a clear highlight in the dossier of Fuerza Guerrera.
