Fantastica Mania 2016 Fantastica Mania 2017 Fantastica Mania (2018)

Fantastica Mania 2017 was a professional wrestling tour, co-produced by the Japanese New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) promotion and the Mexican Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) promotion. The tour took place between January 13 and 22, 2017, with shows taking place in Osaka, Matsuyama, Kyoto, Nagoya and Tokyo, Japan. The 2017 shows were the seventh time that NJPW and CMLL co-promoted shows in Japan under the Fantastica Mania name. With seven shows, the 2017 tour was the longest in Fantastica Mania history. The shows featured seven matches each, including two matches contested for championships owned by CMLL.

BackgroundEdit

The 2017 Fantastica Mania tour was the seventh year in a row where Japanese wrestling promotion New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) promoted a series of shows in Japan alongside their Mexican partner promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL).[10] The 2017 tour was shows 25 to 31, a total of seven shows.

The tour was officially announced on October 24, 2016. Originally, NJPW confirmed the locations of six shows with a seventh pending confirmation.[11][12] The seventh show was officially announced on November 4.[13] The shows take place in Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo, all of which had previously hosted Fantastica Mania events, as well as Matsuyama and Nagoya, which host their first events.[13] The three final shows in Tokyo will air live through NJPW's internet streaming site, New Japan Pro Wrestling World.[14][15]

NJPW announced the CMLL wrestlers taking part in the tour on October 30.[16] Included were returning wrestlers Atlantis, Bárbaro Cavernario, Dragon Lee, Euforia, Hechicero, Máximo Sexy, Místico, Okumura, Stuka Jr., Titán, Último Guerrero and Volador Jr. and debuting wrestlers Blue Panther Jr., Ephesto, Raziel and Soberano Jr. Also announced for the tour was CMLL ring announcer Evan.[17] On November 21, Rush was added to the tour, three days after he had made his surprise return to NJPW as part of the 2016 World Tag League.[18]

The cards for the events were released by the two promotions on January 5, 2017, (Mexican time) and January 6 (Japanese time).[1][2][19] The tour would include two title matches, contested for championships owned by CMLL. On January 20, Dragon Lee would defend the CMLL World Lightweight Championship against Bárbaro Cavernario and on January 21, Máximo Sexy would defend the CMLL World Heavyweight Championship against Hechicero.[2][19]
