CMLL Japan - February 1999

Really fun tour! CMLL Japan had turned into basically an afterthought for CMLL so Mr. Cacao got to cherry pick the wrestlers he wanted to bring over and brought a really talented group! Virus! Oriental! Ultimo Guerrero! Rencor Latino! Olimpico! Zumbido! A who's who of talented misused CMLL undercarders! This led to a bunch of great matches - perhaps the best being Oriental and Tsubasa vs Virus and Ultimo Guerrero on 2/24/99 at Korakuen Hall which may be the best match in CMLL Japan's history. Oriental actually knocks himself out on a dive early in the match and has to be revived by Olimpico at ringside. He promptly gets up and continues the match including doing a more insane dive than the one that knocked him out! ****+ match! There was also a mask vs mask match on this tour as Goku (ex-AAA guy) and Tsubasa started a rivalry and concluded it a few shows later. The smaller shows on this tour were just golden for fans of workrate.
