I'm heading to the Dragon Gate UK show on Saturday. SHINGO VS TOZAWA!

Generico's replacement has been announced as Genki Horiguchi. Sure, Ricochet/Horiguchi isn't going to be the same calibre as Generico/Ricochet would have been, but Genki's got such a good persona going right now, should be a fun addition to the card.

EDIT: In answer to Rah's question about June/July, a MASSIVE show has been announced for June 15th in London, with Jushin Thunder Liger wrestling (his debut in the UK under the Liger gimmick) along with Prince Devitt. Could be pretty cool!

Genki's on the shows now. Oh fucking shit. Those matches with Riochet and Tozawa are gonna be so much fun. Maybe not MOTYCs like they could have been with Generico but god Genki is an awesome replacement.

Dragon Gate UK: Festival of Fire Night 2

Spoiler for Results:

Pre-show: Stixx defeated Jonny Storm

~ Masaaki Mochizuki defeated Noam Dar

~ Mark Haskins defeated BxB Hulk, Lion Kid and Naruki Doi, pinning BxB Hulk

~ Ricochet defeated Genki Horiguchi

~ YAMATO defeated Jimmy Susumu

~ CIMA defeated Marty Scurll

~ SHINGO defeated Akira Tozawa


Great night of wrestling, not quite up to the phenomenal card from 2011 in Nottingham, but everything was good-excellent. Ricochet/Genki was an absolute blast, and Genki brought his elastic band, much to the delight of the crowd. Ricochet seemed to be really enjoying himself too; such a fun match.

The two oustanding matches were Yamato/Yokosuka and SHINGO/Tozawa, both are worth going out of your way to see when the DVD is released. Yamato/Yokosuka was really stiff and they beat the piss out of each other. Really hot finishing sequence as well. SHINGO/Tozawa was what you'd expect...pure awesomeness.

ASW:UK is quite quickly becoming one my favourite promotions to watch. I might be out of line in this comparison but it almost seems like a child's version of a UK PWG (noting the extremely vocal kids in the audience and the excellent engagement the wrestlers add to their matches). Couple in the idea of yellow/red match cards (akin to football) and I'm hooked.

Just finished going through all the new videos on Allmark's YT channel and this is probably my fav of the bunch:

Absolute fun from beginning to end.

Went to 4FW Battle Britannia Night 1 last night, fun event. Reasonably small crowd I guess (I'm bad at guessing but I'd say maybe 150? 200 at a push?), but it meant I got upgraded to ringside for free. Nice.

Fujita Jr Hayato vs Pete Dunn was ALL KINDS OF AWESOME. Hayato had a series of kicks to the back of Dunn, and seriously...they were disgusting. Dunn's gonna be popping the paracetemol this morning.

Kenny Omega vs Zack Sabre Jr was a great main event too, starting out with some really nice mat wrestling before going for the bigger stuff. Zack looked fantastic here, and Omega put him over after the match on the mic big time. Only downside was a contingent of the fans who possibly didn't realise how much of a scoop it was to have Kenny Omega in little old Chipping Sodbury, as they kept chanting some vaguely racist anti-Canadian remarks at Kenny rather than getting involved in the match. Oh well.

Oh and at intermission I grabbed a photo with Hayato...he let me wear his uber cool Tohoku Jr Heavyweight title belt. Nice guy.

Awesome!

Man alive do I really envy you guys who stay in Britain and America. I'm not sure how you guys keep your bills paid each month. I'd be broke going to every show I could get my hands on. There's just far too much goodness in wrestling that makes me wonder how anyone could ever not love it.

Sounds like some serious money was lost on that show.

Those in the Greater Manchester area should head to Futurehshock 65 in Stockport tomorrow. 8 man tournament for the Futureshock championship vacated by Davey Richards, featuring: Noam Dar, Stixx, Cyanide, Josh Bodom, Simon Valour, Zack Gibson, Xander Cooper and Dave Rayne. Should be fun, the draw for tournie will be made randomly on the night. Never seen Noam Dar before so I'm excited to see if he's as good as people say.
