So, the preview vid for DTABM went up a couple days ago and if that wasn't enough to get your thrift on in ensuring you had the $15 for their next DVD, this definitely will:

Silverback on the official site said:
Hollywood, CA - Nine years is a long time. Think about what you were doing nine years ago. Sitting at home, playing Sim City on Super Nintendo while listening to Stryper on your Walkman. Whatever, we're bad with dates, but that seems like something you'd be doing nine years ago. Then you know what happened? Pro Wrestling Guerrilla came along and made your life better. Now you're eagerly anticipating Sim City for PC while listening to Carly Rae Jepsen on your iPhone. The future is a magical place, and it's all thanks to Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. You're welcome.

"Oh, great and wonderful Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, how can I show you how much I appreciate all that you've given me?" you cry out from deep within your "Call Me Maybe"-induced reverie. "Easy," answers a disembodied voice, seemingly emanating from everywhere and nowhere all at one, "go to http://www.prowrestlingguerrilla.com and order one of every DVD. And buy tickets for Threemendous III while you're at it." Without being able to identify the source of the voice, you begin speaking earnestly to your television, "I will do exactly that! A million times thank you, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla!" The voice answers once again, "No, thank you, avid fan. Without you, none of this would have been possible. Also, maybe consider laying off the drugs."

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's ninth anniversary event, Threemendous III, takes place on Saturday, July 21, 2012, at American Legion Post #308 in Reseda, CA. American Legion Post #308 is located at 7338 Canby Ave., Reseda, CA 91335. Front Row tickets are $30, and General Admission tickets are $25. Threemendous III is scheduled to feature:

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Tag Team Championship Title Three-Way Ladder Match
Super Smash Bros. (Player Uno & Stupefied - Champions) vs. Future Shock (Adam Cole & Kyle O'Reilly - Challengers) vs. The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson - Challengers)
If the fans of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla have learned one thing in the past nine years, it is that we are globe-trotting, trend-setting bon vivants that have seen a million faces and rocked them all. If there are two things the fans have learned, it is that the word of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla Senior Official Rick Knox is law. If Pro Wrestling Guerrilla were Mega-City One, Rick Knox would not be Judge Dredd, he would be Chief Judge Rick Knox, because he is inimitable, as well as beyond reproach. Just about everyone would agree with that assessment of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's top lawman except for two men: former World Tag Team Champions Matt and Nick Jackson, The Young Bucks.

"Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely." This was on the cover of the 39-page document that arrived at the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla offices last week, hand delivered by The Young Bucks' legal counsel, Mr. Malachi Jackson, Esq. The brief detailed accusations of rampant corruption and abuses of power by the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla officials throughout the years, citing most recently the physical involvement of Rick Knox in the World Tag Team Championship Title Match against Super Smash Brothers at Death to All But Metal. Physical involvement which The Young Bucks argue played a direct result in costing them the match and the titles. The suit then went on to demand that Rick Knox be immediately removed from his position as Senior Official and suspended indefinitely, that Player Uno and Stupefied be stripped of the World Tag Team Championship titles, and that The Young Bucks be given a $100,000 cash settlement for "damages."

Since we here at Pro Wrestling Guerrilla love Rick Knox almost as much as unreasonably large sums of money, our general counsel made a counter offer to The Young Bucks: an opportunity to face the Super Smash Brothers on July 21 at Threemendous III. On behalf of The Young Bucks, Malachi Jackson, Esq. immediately accepted the rematch, and while leaving our offices, stole a water bottle, a banana, and a 6-week-old issue of Entertainment Weekly. It was at this point that we began to suspect that he was not really an attorney.

Unbeknownst to the Bucks, the Player Uno and Stupefied were originally scheduled to face Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly, Future Shock, at Threemendous III in the first title defense. However, since the last time the Bucks and Smash Bros. faced off was in a No Disqualification Match, the only way to up the ante for this rivalry was to have the first-ever three-way Ladder Match for the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Tag Team Championship titles! Granted, we'll probably have to spend $100,000 on repairs to the building after this match, but it's better than giving it directly to The Young Bucks.

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Championship Title Match
"Mr. Wrestling" Kevin Steen (Champion) vs. Willie Mack (Challenger)
When looking back at the first nine years of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, it is impossible to overlook the meteoric rise of World Champion "Mr. Wrestling" Kevin Steen. Only five months after his debut he was already challenging for the World Championship. Just four months after that he successfully captured his first World Championships. From that point on, Steen climbed higher and higher in the world of professional wrestling, but managed to cast an indelible shadow on Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. Despite living 3,000 miles from Los Angeles, Kevin Steen feels most at home in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, a fact that is readily apparent to the fans in every single Kevin Steen match.

One fan that witnessed the evolution of "Mr. Wrestling" Kevin Steen from his first match in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla to this, his third reign as World Champion, is his challenger at Threemendous III, Willie Mack. Often spotted sitting front row during the early part of Steen's Pro Wrestling Guerrilla career, Willie Mack is proof positive that hard work and dedication pay off. Sure, it might be a cliché, but that's because it's true. Willie Mack began training as a professional wrestler with one goal in mind: become Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Champion. And now he is just a single match away from matching one of the most astonishing rises Pro Wrestling Guerrilla has ever seen.

In the nineteen months since his Pro Wrestling Guerrilla debut, Willie Mack has competed in a Battle of Los Angeles, two DDT4s (reaching the finals with El Generico this year), and defeated a veritable who's who of professional wrestling: Roderick Strong, Naruki Doi, Chris Hero (twice), "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin, and perhaps most importantly, "Mr. Wrestling" Kevin Steen. Can Willie Mack repeat the success he had against former World Champion Chris Hero and come away with a second victory over Kevin Steen, this time with the title on the line? Or will Kevin Steen prove why he is one of the most important professional wrestlers that Pro Wrestling Guerrilla has ever seen by making his third title reign his most significant yet?

Singles Match
"Unbreakable" Michael Elgin vs. Sami Callihan

Tag Team Match
RockNES Monsters (Johnny Goodtime & Johnny Yuma) vs. Fightin' Taylor Boys (Chuck Taylor & Ryan Taylor)

Singles Match
TJ Perkins vs. Roderick Strong

Singles Match
Brian Cage vs. Eddie Edwards

Singles Match
B-Boy vs. Drake Younger

Singles Match
Famous B vs. Joey Ryan​

Looking at that card I can understand why the front row tickets were sold out in under eight minutes. There's definitely something for every body and even a rematch from the original Threemendous (Perkins/Strong - if you're a stickler for history).

It's a pity that Generico will be in Japan on this date, but it's a nice touch to see PWG bringing in lesser used guys to keep things fresh and offer matches we might not be able to see elsewhere.

What a stacked card. I can only imagine how crazy and sick the ladder match will be. I had a feeling Mack would be in the title match once I clicked on the thread , will he win is a different story though. . Elgin and Sami should be sick if it's Sami getting destroyed for the better part of the match.

Undercard looks great too. Edwards and Cage is very intresting, Edwards is perfect for Cage's style. Smiled when I seen TJP vs Roderick. Drake Younger is a very random addition but whatever. Glad they didn't waste a good oppenent on B-Boy. Generico is conspicuous by he's absence but it still doesn't take away from this STACKED card. Can't wait. :mark:

B-Boy vs. Drake Younger - UGH, WHY?

But everything looks great, glad to see Ryan back. Mack - Steen can to be good, the 3-way sounds crazy, can't wait for Dos's amazing spots. Elgin vs. Sami will be great too

Not as hyped as others either.

Really looking forward to Mack/Steen and I'm sure the ladder match will be crazy, but at the same time I wasn't as high as others on the 3 way Guerilla Warfare match two years ago so I wouldn't be surprised and having the same feeling towards this but I hope I'm proved wrong.

Like peep4life, not a fan of Sami or B-Boy as well as Cage and Younger.

Fuck me! Awesome card. Glad we're finally getting Steen/Mack, can't wait for that one. And I've got high hopes for the ladder match. Count me stoked!

Phenomenal card. Like always, really looking forward to this show.

Between the ladder match, the world title match, and Mack/Elgin, you really can't go wrong.

Plus with Drake moving out to Cali it was expected he'd make his way to PWG, and I haven't seen a bad B-Boy/Younger match so I'm looking forward to this one as well. Plus Chuck Taylor which hopefully means Chuck Taylor commentary.

I couldn't believe it when I read that front row tickets sold out in 8 minutes. That's pretty crazy.

Maybe it's time for PWG to find a bigger venue.

Not crazy about the card tbh. Especially for the anniversary show. Steen/Mack has the potential to be super but I've gone down on Mack lately. Ladder match seems odd and probably gonna be really dangerous in a stacked house with 6 guys and ladders bumping around everywhere. Probably either be awesome or terrible. Drake Younger is terrible. B-Boy is terrible. Match should be awesome. Meh on the rest bar maybe Elgin/Callihan.

B-Boy vs. Drake Younger is one of the most random matches that PWG could have booked. As long as they keep it short and just beat the shit out of each other it should be fun.

Elgin/Callihan is something that I would love to see. Should be another fun match where they will just beat the shit out of each other. Perkins/Strong is going to be hit or miss but should at least be decent.

I hope Steen/Mack can deliver but it's not something that I'm really all that excited about.

Ladder match should be great. I just hope nobody gets hurt (and that includes everyone in the crowd as well). I have to say that when that match will be taking place there would be no place I would rather be than in Reseda for that.

Fuck out of here if you think either Drake or B-Boy are terrible. Never once seen a bad match out of Drake and hes killed it this year and in the best shape hes ever been in. B-Boy is far from terrible but can be bland at times. If their rubber match is anything like the first two then the crowd will love Drake.

I am totally excited for this card. That is with my expectations adjusted for what PWG has been this year compared to what it was from 2009-2011. There isn't the kind of talent that there was before out there on the indy scene. But PWG has still remained consistently good this year.

3-Way Ladder Match: This match will be INSANE!!! Though this match makes me scared that someone could get seriously hurt. Though this match has MOTY potential IMO if done right.

Steen vs. Mack: Maybe not what I imagine for a PWG anniversary show but for a normal anniversary show this is the kind of match you want. The homegrown guy who has beaten some of the best going against the well traveled and independent star champion who also got his break in the company. Mack has proved that he can put in some great performances and this is his BIG chance. I don't just want a really good match that I know these two can put on. I think this has gotta be a great match that makes people go "Wow"

Elgin vs. Callihan: This is a match that if probably done a year from now would be bigger. These guys are two of the best. They just haven't gotten to the level of a Davey Richards(I can't say I'm his biggest fan but he still full all intensive purposes is a higher echelon guy on the indys) , Kevin Steen, or El Generico. Could be real awesome and maybe the match I am most looking forward to.

RockNES Monsters vs. Fightin' Taylor Boys: I didn't recognize Chucky T was in this at first. So I expect some wackyness because Chuck Taylor rarely seems to really bring it unless there is a reason. But when he isn't being a phenomenal wrestler, he is a phenomenal comedy wrestler.
TJ Perksins vs. Roderick Strong: SOLID
Brian Cage vs. Eddie Edwards: Cage is getting some real opportunities to prove himself.
B-Boy vs. Drake Younger: I actually like Younger this year. Watched his match between himself and Rickey Shane Page and that was a hell of a lot of fun. Probably gonna be a lot of stiffness up in this joint.
Famous B vs. Joey Ryan: It is there.

Yeah, much like what PWG gave to SSB at DDT4, I have a feeling this is Mack's breakout time and he really needs to step to the plate or all his work might be for naught.

Fuck out of here if you think either Drake or B-Boy are terrible. Never once seen a bad match out of Drake and hes killed it this year and in the best shape hes ever been in. B-Boy is far from terrible but can be bland at times. If their rubber match is anything like the first two then the crowd will love Drake.
This.

I stated there's something for everybody and this is definitely proof of it. It's not like they're going to occupy much time, anyway, so why not have a stiff match that fuels the crowd's aggressive nature? Drake Younger isn't terrible, and even if this match was, there is a thing called the fast forward button.

Looking at the price, I can't really think of a better way to spend that amount of money for what will be an epic triple-threat main event, the possible breakout performance Willie Mack has been building to (I wouldn't actually be surprised if Willie wins, tbh, as it is their biggest home-grown star on their biggest anniversary yet - too soon? Maybe, but he's worked for a transitional reign, at least) and what will probably be another "proving match" for Brian Cage - in getting resigned with WWE.

If this show doesn't readjust people's MotY lists then I'll eat my damn hat.

What a match-card! #STACKED!

- 3-Way Ladder Match: this will be batshit crazy, potentially the most entertaining shit of the year. The Bros better retain.
- Steen/Mack, hellyeah! Could go either way, but Steen needs to retain, IMO, because we NEED TO SEE Steen/Generico in a Guerrilla Warfare for the title.
- Elgin/Callihan: lookin' forward to this match, two of my favorite Indy prospects. Elgin wins.
- TJP/Roddy: this will be a scientific clinic. It works in Reseda.
- Cage/Younger: potential sleeper here, folks.
