4/30- CWE’s Mentallo successful in Japan.

“The Galaxy’s Own” Mentallo continues to live his life long dream of competing in the orient and has been successful while doing it! The undefeated Mentallo was scheduled for the Re-Generation X tour last week before getting the callback to return for Tajiri’s SMASH promotion in Japan. Here is the result of what looked to be an epic encounter!
