|The Bucks' opponents for NEW Wrestling Under the Stars are doozies...|

Alberto el Patron and Rey Mysterio.
While el Patron and Mysterio were rivals in WWE, they've become allies in their home promotion of AAA, along with Myzteziz (fka Sin Cara, fka Mistico) as somewhat of a dream trio. el Patron has been tearing up AAA and Lucha Underground, and he's very much in his prime if not just a little bit past it right now. Mysterio, while battling injuries and slowed down from his heyday, still brings the thunder. They're still very much a power duo in pro wrestling, so who wouldn't want to book them against the Young Bucks, who are still for my money the best tag team in the goddamn Universe. Putting those two entities together ought to be a no-brainer.
And to its credit, NEW does a great job of giving these matches time and letting the wrestlers build their stories. I've heard great things about Lawler/Steen, but I saw the Hardys/Bucks match. You can watch it too. Hopefully, it will make tape, but if you don't to chance it and you can make it to the lower Hudson Valley on Saturday, August 1 for Wrestling Under the Stars '15, then you get your ass to Duchess Stadium in Wappinger Falls, NY. You're not going to want to miss this one.
