YES to Dragon Lee vs. El Barbaro Cavernario - CMLL Super Viernes 04/01
I don't watch CMLL much, but I remember watching a great lightning match with both of these guys about a year or two ago. I'm glad I checked this out, because it was just tremendous.
Cavernario was just ruthless from the opening bell, mauling Lee and violently throwing him around outside. He even went for the mask and ripped it clean off, all the while showboating and being arrogant enough to cost himself a fall in the process. The third fall was the longest, starting with a tremendous comeback by Dragon Lee who was going ham with massive dives that almost resembled diving spears, which eventually turned into these huge moves thrown by both guys for a bunch of great near falls. Lee eventually won making the full comeback.
There was a ton of great heat here, and if I could give this any criticism, its that this ref had the most dramatic slow count ever, although I guess he was just older or something. IT felt kinda goofy at times. Still, tremendous match!
