Volador Jr. in Japan

This past weekend CMLL's Volador Jr. got his rematch with Prince Devitt for the NWA Middleweight Title on the 07/29 event for New Japan, but Devitt was able to retain his title in what was said to have been a very good matchup. The match actually Main Evented the card which was the 40th Anniversary of the famed New Japan promotion which is a really cool thing for Volador and surprising.
