With the talk of a possible [fake] showdown between Jerome Le Banner and Mirko Cro Cop there is a reason why such a bout would be a big deal in Japan, even if it were simply professional wrestling. It would be a rematch, of sorts, from 1996 where the two younger men met in the K-1 ring. Both men would go on to be wildly successful in Japan and become gigantic stars. Cro Cop became one of the biggest names in PRIDE FC and JLB became a K-1 legend.
So while it is not official yet, the thought of both men in the ring together again, even if not real, is exciting and would be a great moment for fans across the world. So go ahead and check out their first fight.
