Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Negro Navarro from Lucha Memes 2017

While a tad on the unnecessarily long side, this was a really fun competitive grappling battle. The story of a legend taking on a young gun has always been a staple of professional wrestling as the art was basically designed for such dynamics. The pure anguish from Zack after succumbing to defeat to this man nearly thrice his age is the kind of emotion that makes pro wrestling so satisfying.

When you combine that with the great pacing that led to a steady increase in tension throughout the battle, you have yourself a really compelling pro wrestling match. Lucha experts/fans will probably be able to discuss the match in more thoughtful ways, but rest assured that this was a fun one.  (***1/2)
