1/13 New Japan Pro Wrestling & CMLL “Fantasticamania” at Osaka Results

wrestle kingdom 9The first of six “Fantasticamania” events between New Japan Pro Wrestling and the Mexican CMLL promotion kicked off today from the Bodymaker Colosseum in Osaka, Japan. We will be providing results for each of the shows, with the final 1/18 and 1/19 shows being aired live on the New Japan World streaming network. 

(1) Rey Cometa & Triton def. Barbaro Cavernario & Mr. Niebla. Short match. Cometa hit Cavernario with the 450 Splash. 

(2) OKUMURA and Angel De Oro fought to a Time Limit Draw. 

(3) Gedo & Polvora def.  Jushin “Thunder” Liger & Mistico. Polvora pinned Mistico with the Polvora Driver. It’s important to note for non-CMLL fans this is NOT the former WWE star Mistico (aka Sin Cara), but the “Mistico II” version the promotion debuted after he went to WWE. 

(4) Stuke Jr., Tiger Mask & Stigma def. YOSHI-HASHI, Shinsuke Nakamura & Mephisto. Stuka pinned Mephisto with the Torpedo Splash. 

(5) Tesuya Naito, Ryusuke Taguchi & La Sombra def. KUSHIDA, Captain New Japan & Mascara Dorada. Naito pinned Captain NJ. 

(6) Atlantis, Hiroshi Tanahashi & Valador Jr. def. Kazuchika Okada, Gran Guerrero & Ultimo Guerrero. The Atlantis/Guerrero rivalry continues. Ultimo had his mask despite losing it at the 81st Anniversary show, so Atlantis took it off him again.
