Sami Callihan and Arik Cannon have signed contracts with Dragon Gate USA, so expect them to continue to get a big push. The promotion just released the first "Dirty Ugly F***s" (DUF) t-shirts.
Rich Swann will be going over to Dragon Gate for an extended stay in Japan after this weekend's shows. Ricochet will also be returning for a tour after the NYC event. One of the most important aspects of the DGUSA connection will be that a lot of talents with potential will be able to realize that potential and grow with the Japanese tours.
As noted yesterday, DGUSA will run Internet PPVs on Friday in Revere, MA and Saturday in NYC. For details on pre-ordering the events, click here to sign up for a WWNLive.com account.-
The advance for Sunday at BB Kings in Manhattan is said to be strong. There are some premium tickets available at www.dgusa.tv, including second row. The promotion are also holding Ticket Packages for a discounted total price for the Revere and Long Island debuts on Friday and Saturday through Thursday.
Masaaki Mochizuki and Susumu Yokosuka's only scheduled appearances for DGUSA will be this weekend.
Chuck Taylor suffered a groin injury working for PWG over the weekend but should be good to go.
Gabe Sapolsky was interviewed by the guys over at TwoSpotMonkeys. I'd like to congratulate our old pal Jim on his engagement as well!
Reby Sky has canceled off this weekend's events.
The Friday Revere, MA will feature a bonus card from Top Rope Promotions featuring:
-Vinny Marseglia vs. Caleb Konley.
-Matt Magnum & Ryan Waters vs. Brandon Webb & Matt Taven.
-Luscious Latasha vs. Barbie.
A new market in the Mid-West should be announcing with the next two weeks.
