Dream.9 Late with April Fools Joke
If you haven’t seen that Jose Canseco will be fighting Hong Man Choi on Dream.9, well, Jose Canseco is fighting Hong Man Choi on Dream.9. It’s always a freakshow and a publicity stunt for these two. Choi can’t grow past the freakshow stage because if Japan really had their way, he’d be in a glass box on display fighting midgets….in diapers. Trust me. I’ve been to Japan and they love their tentacle monsters.
At least it gets less weird, or the same level of weirdness as Mark Hunt takes on Gegard Mousasi in an open weight fight and Bob Sapp will face Ikuhisa “Minowaman” Minowa.
Dream dubbed this event the World Superman Championship. If this was announced 29 days ago, this would have been an awesome April fools joke. But it’s not.
