You also had a bunch of people that were there for the CZW show so you can only imagine what kind of crowd showed up for the double header. People wanted blood and chair shots. I did my best for the show (I think you can even see Bobby Fish give me a high five after he won).

That is why it's called organized crime.

Wonder why EVOVLE didn't go first and let CZW have the night slot, people would have loved a Sabu/Credible match in that slot and wouldn't have been so quick to turn on anything else.

E10 had a nice string of good wrestling matches and the show flowed smoothly (at least, until the end). Not the best EVOLVE show but no promotion hits home runs every inning, it's not possible.
There were reasons for this particular show, but I always find myself saying about EVOLVE and DGUSA shows ".....and the matches would have been better if not for the crowd." Between Gabe running places where he doesn't draw/advertise well leading to a crowd that only pops for extreme moments, the novelty of DG guys coming over wearing off, the general blandness of the undercard and the lack of a top guy to carry it it always seems that the shows are those that you watch but doesn't register with you at all.

Gabe got that spot and wasn't going to give up the last show in the Arena. He got a huge boost in ticket sales because of the venue closing and he wanted to milk it for all it was worth.

A proper re-watch:





No. 1 Contendership for the Open The Freedom Gate Championship
Ricochet (4-2) vs. AR Fox (3-1) vs. Jigsaw (1-1) vs. Samuray Del Sol (0-1) ***

Silas Young (3-1) vs. Adam Page (0-2) N/A (too shame Silas broke up with Gabe, he's so great)

Kyle Matthews (0-1) vs. Caleb Konley (2-1) **1/2 (Konley improved massively in 2012)

Jake Manning (1-0) vs. Alex Reynolds (2-0) **1/2 (this was mostly good, but dragged at times)

Low Ki (3-0) vs. Jon Davis (1-2) ***1/2 (this was a very strong effort, Davis was great here)

Chuck Taylor (7-3) vs. Mike Cruz (0-1) **1/2

El Generico (0-2) vs. Sami Callihan (3-5) ****1/2 (what a BOSS match)

Open The Freedom Gate Championship
Johnny Gargano © vs. AR Fox **** (an exciting, fast paced and visually impressive Junior sprint, great match)


One of the strongest EVOLVE shows to date. Not one bad match, there was a bunch of rock solid undercard stuff, Low Ki and Davis had a really good, hard-hitting and struggle-to-win match, and the main event was really awesome. Gargano and Fox both showcased their athletic abilities, but it was also more than just that, more than an exhibition, they told a good story about fighting hard for the title. It was a hard fought match that elevated both of them and the title. But the MOTN moniker belongs to Callihan vs. Generico. What a great match! Both men entered the match with negative records, so they were desperate for win, and boy, did they show it in the match or what? Excellent storytelling about winning at any cost, especially from desperate Callihan (4 losses in a row), the finishing stretch was awesome and very well done. I liked Low Ki's commentary, he was really putting over the importance of winning and not wasting your time inside the ring. Sure, I can see why it bothers some people who think Low Ki was burying wrestlers on commentary, but let's be honest here, people are looking way too deep into it. This was a very good show, with an excellent third hour.









1st Round
The RockNES Monsters vs. The Fightin' Taylor Boys ***1/2

1st Round
The Dynasty vs. Future Shock ***

1st Round
2 Husky Black Guys vs. Roderick Strong & Sami Callihan ***3/4

1st Round
The Young Bucks vs. The Super Smash Bros ****

Semi-Finals
The RockNES Monsters vs. 2 Husky Black Guys ***1/2

Semi-Finals
Future Shock vs. The Super Smash Bros **** (MOTN)

World Championship
Kevin Steen © vs. Sami Callihan ***3/4

Finals
2 Husky Black Guys vs. The Super Smash Bros ***3/4


The best DDT4 so far, IIRC, a top notch show from top to bottom. Just a balls awesome night of excellent tag team wrestling, plus there was a damn good World Title match as a bonus. Steen/Callihan was so fucking awesome to watch, one of the best brawls in a long time, and Steen pulling FINLAY on poor Sami was a fucking eye candy. I honestly feel like a prick for not giving this match ****+ rating, but there was a lack of drama because the last 6-7 minutes was all about Steen decimating Sami. One helluva brawl this was. The DDT4 Tournament matches were all good, with two of them being absolutely great (Bucks/SSB and FShock/SSB). Excellent show, right behind Death To All But Metal. Hopefully PWG continues to book Future Shock as a team.

Interesting points that you make, I guess it really didn't register with me since I've been such a huge fan of the company since the first show, despite its negatives I find the positives much bigger in comparison which is why they're one of my favorite promotions. In my opinion they have lots of great matches (with or without the DGJapan talent), they have some of the best card structure/pacing and I don't find the roster bland at all, I'm" a fan of guys like Johnny Gargano, Sami Callihan, Jon Davis, Samuray Del Sol, Arik Cannon, Bobby Fish, AR Fox, Ricochet, Jigsaw, etc. while occasionally throwing in guys like Low Ki, Finlay and Generico and Gargano is the top guy in the promotion.

If you're not a fan of DGUSA/EVOLVE that's fine, I followed CHIKARA for 3 years but I stopped because their promotion overall simply wasn't my cup of tea personally.

Dragon Gate USA - Enter The Dragon 2012 iPPV Review:

Masada vs. Jake Manning - N/A

The Scene (Caleb Konley & Scott Reed) vs. Zero Gravity (Bret Gakiya & CJ Esparza) - **1/4

Samuray Del Sol vs. Shane Hollister - *3/4
Too short to be something good.

The Super Smash Brothers (Player Uno & Stupefied) vs. D.U.F. (Arik Cannon & Pinkie Sanchez) - ***1/4

I Quit Match
Johnny Gargano vs. Chuck Taylor - ****
MOTN. But the guy that was with Lanny or tried to totally ruin the match or he just acted like an asshole. While Lanny trying to make this match look personal and like the biggest match of their career this moron made jokes and mocked Lanny. Really annoying.

YAMATO vs. Jon Davis - **1/4

El Generico vs. Akira Tozawa - ***1/2

Open The United Gate Titles
Ricochet & Rich Swann vs. CIMA & AR Fox - ***3/4

The crowd was really bad here...

I see Martin Stone is back from injury and has started with the WWE.

Not surprised, the sort of look and build the WWE likes.

B-Boy vs. Famous B ***1/2 (shocked to see how good this was)

Ryan Taylor vs. TJ Perkins ***1/2

World Championship
Kevin Steen © vs. Brian Cage-Taylor ****1/4 (seriously, this was incredibly awesome, an instant classic)

World Tag Team Championship (No DQ) (vacant)
The Young Bucks vs. The Super Smash Bros ***** (unFUCKINGbelieveable)

The RockNES Monsters & Candice LeRae vs. Joey Ryan, Peter Avalon & Ray Rosas **1/2

Willie Mack vs. Michael Elgin ****1/4 (great powerhouse monster bash, I want a rematch)

El Generico vs. Ricochet ****1/2 (sooo smooth and awesome, great storytelling here)


Seriously, this is like… one of the best shows ever! Words can not describe the awesomeness of this show, you just gotta watch it. 4 (FOUR!) fucking MOTYCs, and one of them being a five star classic and one of the most entertaining matches I've ever seen, two good openers, and a funny and disturbing 6-man tag. This show was so fucking good that I was actually dying to be interrupted by a DUD match, just to put my shit together, and to take a break from marking the fuck out. No matter how good and great some other companies' shows are, PWG still manages to find the way to rape them anally, they are something else. The No DQ between the Bucks and the SSB is my new Match Of The Year, dethroning Okada and Naito in process.
