DGUSA: Open the Golden Gate
Low Ki vs BxB Hulk - ***1/4
~ Fast, action-packed opener. Ki's intensity can be grating at times, especially as it can come at the expense of selling, but I can't complain too much, these two gelled pretty well.
Young Bucks vs Scorpio Sky & Chuck Taylor - ***3/4
~ This was a ton of fun. Great to see the Young Bucks back in a DGUSA ring, and Scorpio Sky was a tremendous fill in for Rich Swann.
Masato Yoshino vs Naruki Doi - ***1/2
~ Good stuff here, pretty similar to their match at DGUK Shingo vs Yokozuka III, but that's no bad thing.
Tables Match: AR Fox vs Sami Callihan - ***3/4
~ Really well worked tables match here, I loved them using the table as a weapon, rather than just simply trying to put each other through it. Nice improvised finish too.
Caleb Konley vs Jon Davis - **
~ Squash, Davis looked good which is the main point really.
Pac vs Akira Tozawa - ****
~ Plain awesome action. Pac took a scary bump to the outside, and from that point on the adrenaline kicked in and they ramped up the intensity. Peaked at the right moment as well, they built to a stellar finish.
Ricochet & CIMA vs Susumu Yokozuka & Masaaki Mochizuki - ***3/4
~ That double team leaping enziguri-to-powerbomb by Mochizuki & Yokozuka was BEAUTIFUL. Loved that! Very enjoyable main event, only held back by some pacing issues towards the end. They were building up to what seemed like the finish, and then the pace just completely fell flat for a bit. They got back on track, and it was a nice finish when it came, but it was a bit odd for things to drop off like that.
A stellar night of DGUSA action. 3 matches at ***3/4 and the brilliant Pac/Tozawa contest at **** make this an essential DGUSA purchase for 2012.
