The Arena – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – July 24, 2010
CIMA goes out to fire up the crowd in his broken English, and Johnny Gargano comes out to interrupt him. Gargano nominates himself to be the American representative of Warriors International. CIMA disagrees so Gargano slaps him! The WI leader makes the challenge for a match and away we go.
MATCH #1: CIMA vs. Johnny Gargano
Gargano starts off on fire, sending CIMA to the floor and following him out with a suicide dive. They fight on the floor for a bit and Gargano is in control. Back in the ring Gargano hits a dropkick to the back for two. Gargano follows with a neckbreaker for another two-count. CIMA rolls through a sunset flip and hits a double stomp and then a somersault senton. He goes to work on Gargano’s left leg now, even utilizing a surfboard. Gargano bites his way out of that but CIMA goes right back on the attack. CIMA traps Gargano’s head in the corner and spanks him a few times before hitting a dropkick to the ass. Gargano tries going to the second rope but CIMA catches him with the Venus to send him to the apron. CIMA charges but runs right into the slingshot spear. Gargano takes control and mocks CIMA repeatedly. CIMA fights back with Superdrol from out of nowhere. He hits a nice double stomp for two. CIMA scores with a sunset flip off the top rope for another two-count. Gargano comes back with the Lawn Dart and a superkick for two. He goes for it again but CIMA slips out and hits a superkick. They trade finisher attempts until CIMA is able to land the Perfect Driver and it only gets two! CIMA hits a running basement dropkick on Gargano in the Tree of Woe, and then hits a coast-to-coast dropkick. He hits the Schwein finally and then Meteora to get the pin at 11:54. That was a good opener and a great showing for Gargano, who looked like he belonged with the big boys.
After the match CIMA shakes the referee’s hand and everyone else’s at ringside, but when it comes time for Gargano to get his due, CIMA snubs him.
This is Drake Younger
Backstage – Drake Younger goes over his history and how he always had to fight and all that. He says that after tonight everyone will respect him.

Back at the first DGUSA show, Open the Historic Gate, YAMATO picked a fight with Mike Quackenbush and Jigsaw, and he gained the advantage when Gran Akuma joined forces with YAMATO.
MATCH #2: Four Way Freestyle – Ricochet vs. Chuck Taylor vs. Adam Cole vs. Arik Cannon
Ricochet and Cannon start the match. They go back and forth a bit until Cannon gets sent to the floor and Taylor comes in to replace him. Taylor dropkicks Ricochet to send him to the floor and Cole comes in for the first time. Cole knocks Taylor to the floor and wipes him out with a dive. Ricochet teases a dive but Cannon cuts him off. Cole nails Ricochet with an enziguiri from the floor, and then Taylor wipes out Cannon and Cole with a dive. Whew. Finally Ricochet connects with a dive, wiping out all three of his opponents. Back in the ring Ricochet goes up top and Taylor knocks him down and goes for a superplex, but Cannon breaks that up by powerbombing Taylor down. Cannon then hits an exploder on Cole into the turnbuckles. Cole comes back with a Northern Lights Suplex for two. He lands a superkick but Cannon comes right back with a huge lariat for two. Taylor rejoins the battle and this Cannon with Sole Food and a huge boot to the face for a two-count. Ricochet is back in it as well and this one is hard to keep up with. He hits Taylor with a hurricanrana and a standing shooting star press for two. Cole grabs Ricochet and hits a Death Valley Neckbreaker for two. Ricochet comes back with a Backslide Driver on Cole and a swinging DDT on Taylor. Cole catches Ricochet with a leg lariat off the second rope.

He hits Ricochet with a spinebuster but then misses a moonsault. Cole drills Cannon with the Panama Sunrise, and Taylor hits Cole with a missile dropkick. Ricochet hits Taylor with Chocolate Rain but misses a corkscrew 450. Taylor then hits Ricochet with the Awful Waffle to get the pin at 9:42. They packed a TON of action into that one and everyone was hitting everything right on tonight. Good for them.
Jon Moxley, Gran Akuma, YAMATO, and Akira Tozawa are backstage getting ready for an eight-man elimination tag team match against a team from CHIKARA. Moxley of course leads the promo and says there will be no CHIKARA survivors. YAMATO promises to break the bean sprout guys in half.
Year in Review
At Open the Untouchable Gate, Naruki Doi defeated Bryan Danielson in a classic match.
MATCH #3: Naruki Doi vs. Drake Younger
I don’t much care for Younger so let’s see what Doi can get out of him. I’m told that Younger is replacing the injured Dragon Kid. They go back and forth and Younger tosses Doi to the floor but then misses a dive off the apron and crashes down hard on his leg. Doi is like a shark with blood in the water, attacking the leg with vigor. After a few minutes of abuse Younger catches Doi in the corner and hits a belly-to-back suplex. Younger unleashes a flurry of offense and the straps come down. He’s hardly selling the leg as Doi drops him with a back elbow. Doi tries Doi 555 but Younger slips out and hits a diving lariat for two. Younger charges but Doi backdrops him to the apron and traps him for the running elbow strike and shotgun dropkick. Doi of course follows with the somersault senton off the top rope. Younger grabs a quick rollup for two and then hits a sitout Death Valley Driver for two. He tries Drake’s Landing but Doi blocks it and hits a reverse Pedigree. Doi takes Younger down in the corner and hits Dai Bosou. He hits Doi 555 and then pummels Younger’s face with a series of slaps. Doi then hits the Bakatare Sliding Kick to get the pin at 8:42. Younger didn’t sell much after the initial onslaught but Doi still got a pretty decent match out of him, especially considering it was on short notice.
Leonard asks the fans to cheer for Younger for some reason, and then Younger gets on the mic to cut a promo. Younger says he proved that he can hang with the best of Dragon Gate and he offers his services to any of the stables to be their American representative. Johnny Gargano doesn’t take too kindly to that and he pulls Younger to the floor and throws him into the ring post. Younger is busted open.
Mike Quackenbush, Jigsaw, Hallowicked, and Open the Dream Gate Champion Masato Yoshino are representing CHIKARA tonight. They say they are ready to end this feud, and stuff.
Year in Review
Back at Open the Freedom Gate, BxB Hulk defeated YAMATO, CIMA, and Gran Akuma in a four-way elimination match to become the first-ever Open the Freedom Gate Champion.
MATCH #4: Open the Freedom Gate Title Match – BxB Hulk vs. Masaaki Mochizuki
Hulk has been the Champion since 11.28.09, and this is his fifth defense. Mochizuki got this title shot by virtue of being awesome, I assume. They go back and forth in the early going, both men trying to one-up the other. Kicks are thrown from both men, and then Hulk dumps Mochizuki to the floor. Mochizuki misses a knee strike and hits nothing but post. Hulk goes to work on the leg both in and out of the ring with various strikes and submission holds. Mochizuki is able to fight back with a hard kick but it hurts him to do so. He kicks Hulk to the floor, and when Hulk tries a kick he ducks and Hulk kicks nothing but ring post. Mochizuki hits a shinbreaker on the apron and continues the assault. He locks on an Ankle Lock and Hulk is able to get the ropes. Hulk tries to fight back with kicks but there’s not much behind them so Mochizuki is able to stay in control. The champ perseveres though and drills Mochizuki with a springboard missile dropkick. Hulk unloads with kicks now and they go back to the floor. He has stopped selling the leg entirely as he hits a moonsault off the second rope. Back in the ring Hulk hits more kicks and a standing moonsault for two. Hulk hits a Rock Bottom and ties Mochizuki up in the Tree of Woe. Mochizuki avoids a dropkick and lands a running Yakuza Kick. Now it’s Mochizuki putting Hulk in the Tree of Woe and landing a hard kick to the back. Hulk fights back and hits First Flash for two. He this Mouse and a lariat but misses another First Flash. Mochizuki lands a couple of kicks for a two-count. He hits Twister but Hulk kicks out! They fight up on the top rope and Hulk kicks Mochizuki down. Hulk goes up top and Mochizuki brings him down with a superplex. Mochizuki hits Ikkakugeri for a two-count. Hulk hits EVO from out of nowhere. Both men rise and trade strikes. Hulk hits a big boot in the corner and puts Mochizuki on the top rope. He hits a super EVO but it only gets two! Hulk slams Mochizuki down and hits a Phoenix Splash but it only gets two. That looked like an awkward kick out and makes me wonder if someone messed that up. Hulk hits First Flash to get the pin at 21:48. That was disappointing, as the early leg work from both men went nowhere and the match just became all moves. The moves were still good, but the awkward finish didn’t help matters much either.
A scary looking woman confronts Hulk after the match, distracting him long enough for Jon Moxley, YAMATO, and Shingo to run out and attack the Champion. Shingo hits a Death Valley Driver. YAMATO goes for Galleria Bryan Danielson comes out to make the save! Moxley calls Danielson a pussy and tells Shingo and YAMATO to wait until money can be made from fighting him and they bail. Danielson picks up the Open the Freedom Gate title belt and hands it back to the Champion.
Year in Review
At Fearless, Open the Freedom Gate Champion BxB Hulk was attacked by Shingo, Davey Richards, Gran Akuma, and YAMATO after successfully defending his title against Dragon Kid. Jigsaw, Lince Dorado, Hallowicked, and Mike Quackenbush come out to make the save, and CIMA chases everyone away with a broom.
MATCH #5: Rich Swann vs. Scott Reed
Reed is accompanied by Nicole, no last name. Swann starts off with a headlock. Reed counters with his power, hitting a nice belly-to-belly suplex for two. Swann hits a Stunner. Reed hits a release German Suplex for two. Swann gets a rollup for two. He follows with a spinning kick, a Finlay Roll, and a standing moonsault. Swann then hits the standing 450 Splash to get the pin at 2:05. That was certainly brief.
Brodie Lee comes out from out of nowhere to assault both Swann and Reed. He even nails Nicole with a running boot to the face. Lee gets on the mic and says man, woman, or child, if they are put in front of him he will mow them over. He says that next time he’s coming for a Japanese man.
Year in Review
At Mercury Rising, BxB Hulk, Naruki Doi, and Masato Yoshino beat CIMA, Gamma & Dragon Kid. It was awesome, and still one of the best DGUSA matches ever.
MATCH #6: Elimination Match – YAMATO, Akira Tozawa, Jon Moxley & Gran Akuma vs. Masato Yoshino, Mike Quackenbush, Jigsaw & Hallowicked
Kamikaze USA attacks before the bell and away we go. Referee Bryce Remsburg is going to have his hands full here. YAMATO and Quackenbush, the center of this feud, do battle in the ring while everyone else fights on the floor. Moxley attacks Quackenbush from behind to give Kamikaze USA the advantage. Quack sends Moxley to the floor and wipes him out with a moonsault. Yoshino and Tozawa get in the ring now, and Yoshino quickly dumps Tozawa to the floor. Akuma and Hallowicked take their turn. Jigsaw and Tozawa are next up. Momentum has shifted over half a dozen times already. Kamikaze tries to focus on Jigsaw and it works for several minutes. Jigsaw eventually hits Akuma with a super hurricanrana and makes the hot tag. Hallowicked is a house afire but YAMATO cuts him off and the referee loses control. YAMATO is able to hit Hallowicked with Galleria to score the first elimination at 7:55. Jigsaw quickly tries to even the score, and Quack joins him to double-team Moxley but they can’t put him away yet. Yoshino joins them and flies all over in and out of the ring. Jigsaw hits Moxley with a brainbuster for a close near-fall. Moxley grabs Jigsaw in the Crossface Chicken Wing and turns it into a suplex. Jigsaw kicks out at one, lame. He runs right into a lariat and kicks out at one again. Moxley goes to the floor and grabs a chair. He waffles Jigsaw with it right in front of the ref and gets disqualified at 10:34. Jimmy Jacobs comes in from out of nowhere and hits Moxley with a Spear! He brawls with Moxley out of the ring and through the crowd. Meanwhile YAMATO hits Jigsaw with Galleria to eliminate him at 11:08. Yoshino and Tozawa end up in the ring and Yoshino hits Sling Blade. Tozawa comes back with the eventual senton. He continues the beating but Quack comes back in and dumps him out. Akuma joins the fray as well and hits the gutbuster on Quack for two. He follows with a Falcon Arrow and a Frog Splash but that only gets a two-count. Akuma hits a TKO and tries a Code Red but Quack catches him in a powerbomb to eliminate him at 14:21. Yoshino hits YAMATO with Ude Yoshino for two, and then nails the Lighting Spiral. Tozawa breaks up the cover.

Yoshino hits YAMATO with Torbellino and locks on Sol Naciente, and Quackenbush puts Tozawa in the CHIKARA special for the simultaneous tap out at 18:38, giving CHIKARA Sekigun the win. They packed a lot of action in and it was a good blowoff to a year-long feud.
You Don’t Want To Go Down This Road
Jon Moxley is outside and furious about what Jimmy Jacobs did earlier. He tells Jacobs that he does not want to go down this road. Moxley issues one last warning to stay out of his business.

At Uprising, Shingo & YAMATO beat Dragon Kid & CIMA in a tremendous match.
MATCH #7: Main Event Dream Match – Bryan Danielson vs. Shingo
Shingo is representing Kamikaze USA. Danielson offers a handshake but Shingo isn’t so interested. Things get heated pretty quickly and they start trading strikes. Danielson looks for a Tiger Suplex so Shingo takes a powder. Back in the ring Danielson goes to work on the arm. Shingo responds with a shoulderblock as the crowd chants for both men. They take it to the mat and Danielson escapes an armbar and hits a dropkick. Danielson goes back to work on the arm and shoulder. He even uses the surfboard combined with a Dragon Sleeper. Danielson continues the arm work and locks on a Cross Armbreaker. Shingo gets to the ropes, and then is able to pull Danielson to pull Danielson up from the mat and suplex him. That was impressive. They go to the floor and Shingo whips Danielson into the barricade. Shingo punishes Danielson both in and out of the ring. He focuses o n the midsection, but throws a DDT in there as well before hitting a senton for two. Shingo locks on a body scissors and tries to roll it into a pin but Danielson counters it. Both men rise and trade strikes, and Danielson lands a running knee strike. Danielson clotheslines Shingo to the floor, and then kicks him into the front row. He follows him out with a springboard dive into the crowd! Back in the ring Danielson hits the missile dropkick and a running knee strike for just one. Shingo comes back with a Northern Lariat and a Saito Suplex. He hits another Saito Suplex for two. Danielson tries to fight back but runs right into a powerslam for two. Shingo then locks on Manriki and Danielson reaches the ropes. Danielson charges into the corner but Shingo catches him and hits an exploder. Shingo tries the Pumping Bomber but Danielson ducks and grabs an O’Connor Roll with a bridge for two. Danielson then avoids the Blood Fall and kicks Shingo right in the head. He unloads a series of forearm strikes and kicks to the chest. Shingo responds with a pop-up Death Valley Driver and both men are down. Back on their feet Shingo hits a running clothesline in the corner and then tries a superplex. Danielson slips out and ties Shingo in the Tree of Woe, and then drills him with a running kick to the face. He then hits the belly-to-back superplex for two. Danielson starts kicking Shingo’s face in and then locks on a Triangle Choke. Shingo won’t quit though and muscles his way up, but Danielson cuts him off with a crucifix for two. Danielson rolls through that and lands a series of elbows to the face. Shingo gets back to his feet again and goes up to the second rope to hit Stay Dream! Danielson kicks out at two. They exchange headbutts and punches from their knees and Shingo wins the battle. Shingo goes for Made in Japan but settles for a knee strike. He hits a big right hand and Made in Japan but Danielson kicks out again! Shingo hits the Pumping Bomber but again only gets two! He goes for Made in Japan again but Danielson counters with a small package for two. Danielson grabs Shingo in the Cattle Mutilation! He turns it into a bridging Tiger Suplex and gets two. Danielson hits more elbow strikes and goes for Cattle Mutilation but Shingo blocks it. A knockout kick and the Regalplex get Danielson another two-count. Danielson locks on the Triangle Choke, and after some elbow strikes he turns it into the LeBell Lock and Shingo taps out at 29:14! I don’t think it’s outlandish to say that remains the best match in DGUSA history. Both men poured everything they had into it and the final stretch was insane. They just beat each other up for the duration of the match, and it never felt like it was approaching the half-hour mark. These are just two of the best in the business.
After the match YAMATO tries to attack but BxB Hulk comes out to run him off. Jon Moxley comes out to herd YAMATO and Shingo to the back. Danielson gets on the microphone and offers himself as the next member of World-1. Hulk agrees.
BONUS MATCH #1: Lince Dorado vs. Super Shenlong
They take it to the mat right away. Both men counter each other and appear pretty evenly matched. Shenlong sends Dorado to the floor with a dropkick. Back in the ring Shenlong goes to work but Dorado cuts him off with a corkscrew cross body block and a kick. He actually uses the old Yokozuna Trapezius muscle hold and Shenlong reaches the ropes. Dorado hits a terrible dropkick and drops an elbow for two. Shenlong comes back with some similarly sloppy offense. He goes up top and hits a missile dropkick for two. Shenlong hits an Uncle Slam for two. Dorado comes back with a high kick from the apron and a springboard cross body for two. He kicks Shenlong in the head and hits a quebrada for another two-count. Dorado hits a sloppy leaping hurricanrana off the top rope for two. Shenlong comes back with an IED and a tornado DDT for two. He goes up and misses a Shooting Star Press but no water in the pool. Dorado goes up and hits the Shooting Star Press but can’t immediately cover so he only gets two. They slug it out as time expires at a little over 10:00 so the match is a draw. Neither Dorado nor Shenlong looked particularly impressive, and Shenlong hasn’t been back since while Dorado has shown up sporadically at best. I’m glad this was on the preshow.
BONUS MATCH #2: Up In Smoke vs. Rexx Reed & Tommaso Ciampa
Reed and Ciampa attack before the bell but Up In Smoke are ready for them and send Reed to the floor and double-team Ciampa. I don’t like the way the commentators are pronouncing Ciampa, they’re saying it “Cham-po.” At any rate Ciampa hits Cloudy with a reverse electric chair drop. Reed comes in and uses his size advantage to abuse poor Cloudy. Ciampa does the same. Reed goes up to the top rope and misses a senton, allowing Cloudy to make the hot tag. Cheech is on fire, hitting a moonsault on Ciampa and wiping out Reed with a dive to the floor. Back in the ring Cheech goes up top and cartwheels down to a superkick. Cheech hits a face wash, Cloudy follows with double knees, and Cheech hits a 619. Cloudy covers and gets two. Ciampa tries a powerbomb but Cloudy counters with a hurricanrana. Up In Smoke hit Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Cheech and then the Quebec Crash to get the win at 5:40. That was a serviceable truncated tag match.
After the match Brodie Lee comes out and lays waste to both Cheech and Cloudy, just because he’s bigger than them and he can do it.
BONUS MATCH #3: Jimmy Jacobs vs. Sami Callihan
This is the preshow Main Event. They start exchanging chops from the get-go. Callihan takes the first advantage with a series of forearms but Jacobs is bale to fight back by stomping Callihan down in the corner. Jacobs runs right into a clothesline and Callihan works him over on the mat. Callihan tries a boot but Jacobs shrugs it off and hits a big clothesline. Jacobs drop toeholds Callihan into the turnbuckles and follows him in with a clothesline. He hits a slingshot double stomp for a one-count. Callihan avoids a charge in the corner and hits a boot to the chest. He follows up with a Zig Zag for two. Callihan hits a couple of clotheslines that don’t take Jacobs down. Jacobs cuts Callihan off with a Spear for a two-count. Callihan tries a Saito Suplex but Jacobs counters to the End Time, which Callihan counters with an exploder. Now Callihan hits a powerbomb into a folding press for two, and then locks on the Stretch Muffler. Jacobs reaches the ropes. Callihan knocks Jacobs to the floor and follows him out. Callihan grabs a couple of chairs and sets them up together. He goes for a suplex but Jacobs blocks it and hits the Contra Code on the chairs! That’s a cool spot. Back in the ring Jacobs covers but only gets two. Jacobs goes for a Spear but Callihan cuts him off with a knee. Callihan goes up top and misses the diving headbutt so both men are down. They trade strikes and Jacobs hits Breaking the Fall. Jacobs goes up top. Callihan crotches him and goes up, but Jacobs DDTs him down and locks on the End Time to get the tap out win at 9:41. Both guys did a good job making this match seem more important than just another preshow match, and wrestled like they had something to prove.
BONUS MATCH #4: Dream Partner Tag Team Match – Bryan Danielson & Rocky Romero vs. Austin Aries & Homicide, FIP New Dawn Rising, 2.11.05
Aries is the ROH World Champion, and Homicide is the FIP Champion. Danielson and Homicide start the match. They take it to the mat and Danielson tries to work the leg. As usual with FIP matches there’s quite a bit of stalling. Romero tags in so Homicide responds by bringing Aries into the match. Aries and Romero wrestle on the mat as well. Romero gets the advantage and tags Danielson, who unloads with bodyslams. Aries blocks one and hits one of his own. Homicide tags in and goes to work on Danielson’s arm. Danielson escapes and dropkicks Homicide to the floor. Homicide slides a chair in the ring and Danielson commandeers it. Nothing comes of it and the match resumes with Romero dominating Homicide on the mat. Homicide comes back and makes the tag. Aries goes to work on Romero for a bit, and then momentum shifts back to the other team. Danielson goes to work on Aries’ arm. Aries fights back and tags Homicide, who tries a superplex but gets knocked down. Romero hits a missile dropkick. Homicide hits a double underhook suplex. He follows with a Greco Roman Back Drop (thanks Mark Nulty) for two. Homicide uses an abdominal stretch and Romero breaks it with a hiptoss. Romero puts on his own abdominal stretch and then turns it into an Octopus Hold. Homicide breaks it with a side suplex and tags are made. Danielson traps Aries in the Airplane Spin, and then does the same to Homicide. He gets so dizzy that he does it to Romero too, and then dropkicks him to the floor. Homicide tags back in and he and Danielson clothesline each other. Aries tags in and Homicide knocks Romero off the apron as Aries hits a back suplex. Homicide and Romero battle on the floor while Danielson hits Aries with a superplex for two. Aries comes back with a couple of hard forearm strikes for a two-count.

The American Dragon then locks Aries in the Cattle Mutilation for the tap out win at 23:26. That took a while to get going but once they did it was quite fun.
BONUS MATCH #5: Bryan Danielson vs. Roderick Strong, FIP Attack of the Masked Fippers 12.10.05
Danielson is accompanied by Dave Prazak. They go back and forth and Strong hits a shoulder tackle so Danielson takes a powder. Back in the ring they engage in a Greco Roman knuckle lock. Danielson breaks it with a boot to the gut. They go to the floor and Danielson cuts Strong off with a boot getting back in the ring. Danielson goes to work on the arm. Strong starts making the comeback so Danielson bails again. Back in the ring Danielson offers a handshake. Strong of course will have none of that, as he takes the hand down and stomps it. He tenaciously works a headlock. Danielson comes back with a back elbow, and then a somersault senton and the surfboard. He works Strong over and Prazak even gets a few cheap shots in. Strong makes the comeback and fires away. He hits a turnaround cross body block for two. Danielson cuts Strong off with a hard clothesline. Strong comes back and hits a nice monkey flip.

Danielson hits a forearm and a German Suplex to get the pin at 22:07.
