Victory at Lucha Britannia

After 10 weeks away from Lucha Britannia, El Nordico Fuego returned to clash horns against moustache against Jerry Bakewell.

After the initial haka contest (because why not?), Jerry used his size, experience and eye-poking abilities to get the best of Nordico in the opening stages of the match.

Fuego soon fought back with a series of lariats, splashes and slams – as is his general approach to fighting and, indeed, everything.

Nevertheless, Jerry regained the advantage and seemed have the match won when he locked Fuego into a vicious spinning torture rack (the same move Fuego used to submit Monito at York Hall earlier this year). Luckily, probably due to wearing strategically slippery leather trousers, the Viking just managed to slip free and hit the Bakewell with a corkscrew dropkick.

Despite then totally missing the Blood Eagle, Fuego still managed to find the wherewithal to catch Jerry in a victory roll and secure what some claim is his first singles victory at Lucha Britannia.
