Tiger Mask W Synopsis
Two young wrestlers are up against each other in a just lately revived underground wrestling organization, the Tiger’s Lair, which ruined the wrestling dojo they grew up in. One took over the training facilities of Naoto Date at the foot of Mount Fuji, plus the mask he left behind. One other dared to enter the Tiger’s Lair and won a fierce competition, receiving a jet-black tiger mask. One tiger walks the way of light, while the other walks the way of shadows. Neither one knows the other’s face. On the ring, they are natural enemies, but they hold the same purpose—destroy the Tiger’s Lair!
