i really don't get the outcry that i've heard (mostly on twitter) about tozawa going to gcs/wwe being the worst thing ever.

the dude wants this. he absolutely loves wrestling in the states (would you want to do some of that crazy traveling he has to do for pwg ontop of dg's insane touring schedule? he does), his best friends are here, and he's probably not going to get a sniff at the dream gate until final gate this year at the earliest.

if the gcs thing turns into a full-time thing, it'll be awesome for him. he's my favorite wrestler in the world and i'm excited to for the greater wrestling world to finally experience the big over.

This apparently was a Nico thing not a DG thing. If you run a proxy through Japan (I use the hola extension) it still works right as rain.

That's even more bizarre imo though I know it's hardly unprecedented in Japan. Why the hell wouldn't Nico want us to give them money when we have in the past?

I've used Hola to get around mlb.tv and claro(the couple weeks CMLL was blocked outside of Mexico) restrictions but I'd be very leery of trusting it for a PPV.

From what I saw on twitter (grain of salt) there was an international IP attack on Nico and they just locked it down. I'm just going to choose to blame GAORA like I do for most DG availability issues.

Nico is back now.

VerserK imploded completely today and will be in an all-VerserK (minus Mondai Ryu) cage match at Dead or Alive, loser loses their hair or mask for a full year. Another theme of the show was the continuing buildup of the younger generation, with Santa Maria pinning Genki, Yamamura pinning U-T, Lindaman submitting T-Hawk (in singles!), Big R pinning CIMA, and Dragon Kid/Eita becoming a team.

Also King of Gate is a round-robin league with 4 blocks of 6 this year!

It was the two split sides of VerserK and then Kong said "WHY IS RYU NOT IN THE MATCH, HE'S A MEMBER!" and they did a short match to determine that last spot where Ryu upset him and told him to not write checks that his rear end can't cash.

Love the idea of a round robin KING OF GATE. Will have a lot of fun match ups/guys you won't normally see.

Those with a F4W/WO sub should really go check out the most recent Retro Observer. Dave reviews the first Toryumon show and already gave CIMA a ****1/2 rating as a 21 year old.

It seems like it's minor. He completed his match and wasn't limping too bad.

I updated the bracket with the complete table/what's getting taped. i sure hope people like punch tominaga because we are blessed with three of his matches and only one el lindaman one.

If you weren't satisfied with this year's Dead or Alive cage match theme, no worries, DG has managed to outconvolute themselves again.

iheartdg.com posted:

The Double Risk stipulation from last year will return for the cage match this year. Each participant will have a delegate outside the match, who will also have their hair or mask on the line. The rest of the roster had their name written on balls which were then selected in twos by a cage match participant. Those two names will face off in a 10-minute time limit singles match at DEAD or ALIVE with the loser becoming the delegate. The participants of the already set title matches were excluded. Yoshino tried to get the Triangle Gate champion team out of it as well. Saito said that the Jimmyz could very well be champions by then, so they should also be excluded. Doi wasn’t having it. That was Hakata talk. This is Nagoya talk. All 6 were in. No exceptions.

Doi selected CIMA & Gamma.
Kong selected Mochizuki & Kzy.
Tanizaki selected Fujii & Saito.
Kotoka selected Tozawa & Yoshino.
YAMATO selected Susumu & Stalker Ichikawa.
Takagi selected Kanda & Tominaga.

Because Gamma is already mostly bald, some extra stipulations were added to actually give him some semblance of risk. He will not be allowed to shave any lines into the side of his head. Furthermore, ALL participants & delegates will not be allowed to grow facial hair for the duration of their penalty.

Show has ruled so far. BIG MATCH MONDAI, delegate matches were a lot of fun, Twin Gate was a wasteland for the first two thirds of it but the last third was on fire so I'm willing to forgive it. The interaction with the VerserK guys and their delegates is amazing, especially Kotoka with his new nakama Tozawa
