Re: Dragon Gate USA: November Tripleshot
Odds are if Low Ki ain't winning, he ain't coming in.
The entire point of DGUSA was to develop and showcase top tier indy talent with the occassional DGJapan talent coming in for shows. CIMA would serve as the ambassador of the promotion and teach the US talent the Dragon Gate lucha libre style + Japan tours for some of the talent. During the first couple of shows, the fanbase (including myself) heavily rode Gabe because he was relying on the DGJapan talent instead of investing in original guys like he said he would and thankfully he moved away from that and stuck to his word.
It was more that the company had no storyline or feuds, which hurt it when all the great matchups started to dry up. There can be a healthy mix where you don't over rely on foreign talent while at the same time not having the shows feel like just another indy when most of the guys can be seen other places or in EVOLVE during breaks between DGUSA shows.
