wrestle kingdom 9Two of the events for this year’s Fantastica Mania will be airing live on New Japan World from the Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan. While Fantastica is a full week’s worth of events co-produced by NJPW and the Mexican CMLL promotion, the network will only be airing the January 18th and 19th events. 

We will not be providing live coverage of these shows, as they air live at 4:30 a.m. ET but we will have results the following day.

KILLAM: It’s worth pointing out for potentially confused fans that the CMLL version of Mistico appearing on these shows is not former WWE Superstar Sin Cara (currently working as Myzteziz in AAA), but rather “Mistico II” who was repackaged after the original signed with WWE.
