I’m going to let manager Jason Saint of “Shitloads of Wrestling” give the description.
This kind of match taking place on ECW’s Hardcore TV is what made the promotion a must-see for any wrestling fan in the mid-90s. Lucha libre action brought to syndicated pro wrestling TV in the United States, brought to us by the Extreme Championship Wrestling. It’s possible, honestly, that Rey Misterio Jr. wouldn’t have risen to the level of success and fame that he did without his arrival in ECW, which led to his signing with WCW and the eventual run in the WWE. The focus in this match isn’t fully on Mysterio, however, as his opponent Psicosis was a favorite of mine and many wrestling fans in this era especially. Both of these men had a style that American fans had yet to bare witness to, and it was one that revolutionized an interest for years to come.
