NWA World Middleweight Tournament, 1999

From Luchawiki

The NWA World Middleweight Championship had been the property of Ultimo Dragon since he won it from Corazon de Leon in 1994, but a botched arm operation in 1998 forced Dragon to (temporarily) retire from wrestling and relinquish the title.

A tournament, planned to include six men, took place on Feburary 7th, 1999 in Yokohama Culture Gym, Yokohama, Japan, as part of a Toryumon show.
