Andrade v Rey Mysterio - US Title Ladder Match On Raw

This match was absolutely bonkers. There was a certain sloppiness to it that absolutely worked in its favor.

A lot of little brutal moments such as this one, and then some obviously brutal BIG moments like Andrade's Hamerlock DDT that won the match.

Bonus points here for using this to setup the Humberto Carrillo v Andrade US Title match at the Royal Rumble.

I also like that the moment was setup by Andrade not being satisfied with winning the match and retaining his title. He was determined to hurt and possibly injure Rey Mysterio the say way he had Humberto, and that's what got him.

That's an easy story to tell. It's one that works, and totally fits a villain like Andrade.

Great work by all involved.
