#2. Rey de Reyes 2019 Match
The Rey de Reyes 2019 match consisted of a match that started with two wrestlers. Every minute a new participant entered until the nine were completed. The only way for a wrestler to eliminate an opponent was by pinfall or submission. The participants of this match were El Hijo del Vikingo, Myzteziz Jr., Eclipse Jr., Taurus, Laredo Kid, Sammy Guevara, Jack Evans, Golden Magic and Aero Star.
Taurus was one of the great protagonists of this match. After attacking Cody Rhodes in a previous segment, he entered the ring with great confidence and was responsible for the first three eliminations. His first victim was Eclipse Jr, eliminated after a brutal attack. The following were Myzteziz Jr. and Golden Magic, both were eliminated by Taurus after many Rodeo Drivers.
The fourth eliminated was Jack Evans, who received a 450° Splash from El Hijo del Vikingo, who was one of the favourites to win this match because he was the only wrestler of the nine who was a native of Puebla. Laredo Kid used the same manoeuvre to eliminate Sammy Guevara, who was the fifth eliminated from the match.
Aero Star, Laredo Kid and El Hijo del Vikingo executed several moves to eliminate Taurus. The final move was a Diving Splash by Aero Star, who executed the manoeuvre from the shoulders of Laredo Kid at the top of the corner.
Although he was the favourite to win this match, El Hijo del Vikingo was the seventh eliminated. The responsibility for his elimination was Aero Star, who eliminated him after a Springboard Codebreaker followed by a 450° Splash. Only Aero Star and Laredo Kid remained.
The final part of the match was very exciting and both wrestlers showed the best of their arsenals.
Finally, the victory went to Aero Star, who eliminated Laredo Kid after applying a Codebreaker from the Top followed by a Cutter. Aero Star was crowned champion Rey de Reyes 2019, became a creditor of a sword that crowns him as Rey de Reyes (King of Kings) and now is part of the champions of this prestigious tournament with legends such as Octagon, La Parka, El Hijo del Perro Aguayo, among others.Published 18 Mar 2019, 11:34 IST
