Kendo Nagasaki is nothing like Doink at all. There was a version in the UK that, unless you followed British wrestling you'd never have heard of. And then there was Mr. Sakurada, who wrestled in the '70s, '80s and '90s on national TV (at times) in the states and in Canada. He wrestled for the NWA in various territories and was part of the J-Tex Corporation with Great Muta, Buzz Sawyer, Terry Funk and Gary Hart under the name The Dragonmaster as well. If I had to compare him to anyone, due to being from Japan and wearing facepaint, it'd be like getting to meet The Great Kabuki at an event in the states. First time U.S. convention appearance for a legit territory name (Bret Hart gave him a lot of credit for helping train him). He lives in Japan and rarely makes it to the states.

The Midnights are great adds, but I wish somebody would book Condrey to come with them.
Dennis condrey is booked in December with cornette and Eaton in Nashville.

Regarding Kendo Nagasaki, am I missing something or is he basically another "Doink" where you have multiple wrestlers playing the character

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kendo_Nagasaki
Sort of, seems like everyone after Kazuo Sakurada (the guy who was Kendo in the NWA) has been a bit of a variation on the character. Seems like it will be Sakurada though.
Yeah they only two famous versions of it are the British one who was masked and the Japanese who had face paint.

Honestly the great kabuki was a much bigger star than kendo was. I remember him as the dragon master from nwa and kendo and jj Dillon from watching old Florida tapes.

I’m sure they will do a photo op with jj which I would love.

Didn't know the name Ken Resnick but googling his image I realize him by face. Wow not bad. He's finding fresh names where there are no fresh names.

I'm seriously considering attending this but it's essentially a year away. It'll be a game-time decision.

Wow, that just might get me there, but as ICW said, this is basically a year away, and people could easily cancel between now and then. But if the MX reunion holds up closer to the show, I think I'm in.

MX don't have a history of canceling. So short of them dying I think you're fine
