Happy Pro Wrestling Day, what a weird day to hold a holiday couldn't it have been on a monday like most other holidays
(in the US)?
PAC & Masato Yoshino vs. Ricochet & Naruki Doi (1/29/2011)- ****
-Fantastic tag team wrestling here, two high flyers the caliber of PAC/Ricochet backed by two of the GOATs in Doi/Yoshino respectively and you got a barn burner. Doi decides to start by making friends with the crowd and they trade back and forth. They tag in their partners and shit gets cray with some high flying action. They start working each over with their signature spots trading momentum until Yoshino gets worked over but makes the tag to PAC who then hits a springboard dropkick followed by a gorgeous corkscrew springboard moonsault to the outside. Doi tries to shut him down but PAC comes back with a standing 360 Shooting Star Press (never gets old). Ricochet/Yoshino comes in and the pace quickens with plenty of back and forth between the four including PAC hitting a second rope Phoenix Splash. Ricochet hits the 630 Splash, later flattened with a top rope german suplex courtesy of PAC followed by British Airways. 10,000 Chops by Doi but Yoshino catches him with the Lightning Spiral followed by PAC hitting the 630 Splash and the Fosberry flop. Finish comes courtesy of Sol Naciente on Ricochet and he gives up. You want Dragon Gate Lucha Libre? this match has it in loads. I love this promotion.
DGUSA Mercury Rising 2010 Review (3/27/2010)
-One of my favorite shows ever; still holds up very well with a damn good card from top to bottom. You got a slew of great undercard matches highlighted with Quacksaw/Bucks, great promos from Dreamer/Teddy Hart, an outstanding OTDG title match and of course the always epic Dragon Gate Six Man Tag Match. The Warriors faction had the greatest theme ever.

DGUSA OTGG, Revolt & Heat 2013 Review (1/25-27/2013)
-Another great weekend for DGUSA. OTGG was a fun way to kick off, lots of good fun matches but making sure not to burn themselves out. Revolt was a good show as expected, not a bad match on the card with two great matches and a damn good blowoff between Gargano/Davis. Heat was equally great but for different reasons, good continued character progression heading into WrestleCon and yet again consistent with the main event matches delivering. Marked hard for Spanky and it was great to see that he is still in great shape, ditto for Morrison.

Got to check out Davey/O’Reilly from DOD2, have heard nothing but good things and they’re two of my favorite talents on the indies so it should be fun to watch, shame this feud ended so early when it was really starting to find its legs.
