Andrade vs. Rey Fenix

Nothing more to see here than a lucha banger. One half of the Lucha Bros, Rey Fenix is one of the most exciting wrestlers in the world to watch. He has shown an almost reckless abandon in nearly every promotion he’s worked at, including AEW — the Fenix highlight reel is full of death-defying stunts and ridiculous aerial maneuvers.

Andrade is a 30-year-old, 17-year veteran of professional wrestling. A third-generation superstar, he’s one of the few WWE wrestlers to take part in a 5-star rated match (his NXT Championship defense against Johnny Gargano at TakeOver: Philadelphia). While not displaying the traditional “high-flying” luchador style in his WWE career, Andrade is more than capable of working the uptempo style demanded against Fenix.

You want a match that could steal a show? These are the two I’d throw out there in a singles match. I’m sure you could come up with a bunch of tag team or trios or eight-man matches that would have the same excitement factor — anything with the Young Bucks and/or the Usos would be up there. But one on one? Two young men in the absolute prime of their careers going 100mph the whole time can’t be beaten.

I’m fully aware that Fenix has been used more as a tag team wrestler in AEW so putting him into a singles match may be a cop-out, but he’s had a handful of singles matches. Don’t forget, prior to an injury he was scheduled to compete in the Casino Ladder Match at Double or Nothing 2020. He also worked as singles competitor in Lucha Underground, so the ability is there.
