CWC Video Highlights --

Gran Metalik takes on Tajiri

The second round of the Cruiserweight Classic began last night, and the first match of the round saw Gran Metalik take on Tajiri.

It began with some mat wrestling, before incorporating some high flying, and ended in a strong style brawl. Ibushi was able to score the win, but an appreciative crowd made it clear that it was a star-marking performance for Alexander.
