Some of you people actually think that Punk will be on Raw tonight. It's laughable. When you are disappointed at the end of the show because CM Punk wasn't there don't come crying here and posting about it. CM Punk is not coming back from to the WWE.
Tonight is the night and I’m sooooo excited the first ever wrestling show I watch was RAW back in 98 I fell in love. It’s so wild to see RAW going so strong and it’s been going strong for 25 years. RAW is older than A lot of us lol but I’m so excited to watch it. Who are you excited to see?
Results NJPW/CMLL “FantasticaMania 2018”, Monday 1/22/2018 @ Korakuen Hall in Tokyo.

◼ Fuego pinned Disturbio (8:52) with La Flashina.

◼ OKUMURA pinned Star Jr. (10:59) following an Inverted DDT.
As expected, OKUMURA's wife got herself involved in the match several times once again, ultimately costing her when she was suplexed by KUSHIDA.
3) CMLL Brothers Tag Team Tournament 3rd Place Playoff match: Niebla Roja & Ángel de Oro vs. Sanson & El Cuatrero.
◼ Sanson pinned Ángel (9:30) following an Avalanche style Modified Power Bomb.

5) Volador Jr., Soberano Jr. & Drone vs. Los Ingobernables de Japón - Tetsuya Naito, Hiromu Takahashi & BUSHI.
◼ BUSHI pinned Drone (8:37) with a BUSHI-Roll.
Volador Jr. once again pointed out he will never be an Ingobernable (he has denied Rush's invitation several times before in Mexico) by taking a heads on approach with L.I.J here today, which even lead to speculation of possible future matches with either Hiromu or Naito.
6) Satoshi Kojima vs. Rush.
◼ Rush won (10:11) following the Rush Driver after a hard match, which at one point saw Kojima draw blood from an unprotected chair shot to the head.
After the match Rush celebrated victory with his compadres in typical L.I.J fashion.
7) CMLL Brothers Tag Team Tournament Final match: Último Guerrero & Gran Guerrero vs. Dragon Lee & Místico.
◼ Los Guerreros became the inaugural BTTT winners, when Último pinned Místico following a Guerrero Special.
After the match all luchadors gathered in the ring with Último Guerrero promising the fans that the lucha stars will return to New Japan next year.
Young lion Hirai Kawato then gave his farewell speech as he is set to embark on his foreign excursion, touring with CMLL.

Remember when the word “swag” was popular? If you remember what it means, Naito has it. Things he does in the ring that are so simple and take seconds to achieve, get him so over. For whatever reason, this is something WWE can’t pull off. ———————————————————————————
