Gran Metalik vs. Akira Tozawa (Quarterfinal Match)
Metalik, a masked marvel from Mexico, entered the CWC with hopes of showing the world that lucha libre is the best fighting style. He has made a great case for that in his tournament matches so far. Metalik can fly with the world’s best, and he has the uncanny ability to dart across the ring ropes and launch himself anywhere he likes. That skill has earned him the nickname “El Rey de las Cuerdas” – “King of the Ropes.”
He may meet his match in Akira Tozawa, though. Tozawa is a graduate of Japan’s Dragon Gate dojo, a wrestling school that specializes in melding the Japanese style of wrestling with lucha libre. And even though Tozawa is a speedy wrestler that can keep up with any luchador, the Japanese competitor also possesses the raw power and striking ability to stop them in their tracks. Armed with a picture-perfect German Suplex, Akira Tozawa may have all the tools needed to defeat Gran Metalik and advance in the CWC.Who will have their arm raised in victory after this intriguing bout?
