Over/Under: Super Texano
I can’t decide if I like this version of Texano or not. Let’s talk it out.
I like him because hey, it’s Texano. He’s good at what he does. He fits that Alberto El Patron role of showing that not every wrestler from Mexico is a flippy guy with a mask or an older, slowed-down, barrel-chested guy who used to be a flippy guy with a mask. Some people from Mexico want to kick you in the gut and punch you in the face and maybe powerbomb you, and that’s cool. Plus, I like the idea that Texano showed up in chaps getting “Brokeback Mountain” chants but now he’s Lucha Underground’s Diamond Dallas Page. I don’t really know how it happened, but when he’s hustling around the ring lighting people up with cowbells to the dome, he’s easy to cheer.
