Is that the original Tiger Mask? Also it's kind of a waste to have singles matches only be between the CMLL guys. It should be CMLL vs NJPW. I don't want to see Rush vs Atlantis, I'd rather see Rush team up with Naito for example or Mistico vs Tanahashi. I guess this is more for the Japanese public to see lucha libre guys without too much Japanese guys.

It's always been that way for the FantasticaMania shows.

So those are all the dates or just the last 3? Also I don't see Caristico anywhere in there, that sucks. I'd love for him to renew his rivalry with Jushin Liger from the mid-2000's.

Just the last 3 days that will be shown on NJPW World. There could be a few more shows that will be aired. But they could be exlusive for Samurai TV.

Hopefully there is more, there are a few more matchups I'd like to see not listed there.

Think Willie Mack and Johnny Mundo supposed to have their title match
Posted 11 January 2017 - 01:46 AM
Oh yeah, All Night Long. I think Mundo is the best natural heel on the roster but he relies too much on his stable to help him win, even vs someone like Sexy Star.

That's gonna be a long ass break. We could be looking at half a year before LU comes back.
Posted 12 January 2017 - 06:01 AM
So why the long break?
Because they won't start taping next season til late 2017/early 2018.

Hopefully the LU talent will be able to work freely and not be tied up by their contracts. That will only make them more disgruntled.
