We are off and rolling in 2013. This WWNLive Alerts delivers the goods with several major match announcements for DGUSA in California at the end of the month and more including our final look at 2012 in pictures. Let’s get to it….

Dragon Gate USA will return to the Los Angeles area for a doubleheader on January 26th and 27th at the intimate Pappy Pineda Dome in Huntington Park, CA. These will be very memorable events with an incredible atmosphere. Five matches have been signed for these two events. Without further delay, here’s the scoop:

January 26th – Huntington Park, CA – 8pm

Tag Team Dream Match
The Young Bucks vs. Jimmy Susumu & Ryo Saito

Singles Dream Match
Sami Callihan vs. Akira Tozawa

New Stars Coming To LA – Rematch Of Jeff Peterson Cup Finals
AR Fox vs. Samuray Del Sol

January 27th – Huntington Park, CA – 1pm

The Main Event
The Young Bucks vs. Akira Tozawa & AR Fox

Special Attraction Match
Sami Callihan vs. Jimmy Susumu

Tickets are now on sale for both events in the DGUSA.tv Store or by calling 267-519-9744. You can get a package for 1st row reserved seats for both cards and save $20. GA tickets are just $25 in advance, but will be $30 at the door. There is very limited capacity so we recommend buying in advance.

Open The Freedom Gate Champion Johnny Gargano, Rich Swann, Chuck Taylor and Arik Cannon are also confirmed for all three California events including January 25th in Santa Maria, CA. We’ll have many more names and matches announced soon. Keep checking the WWNLive Alerts for the latest breaking news.

Johnny Gargano will defend the Open The Freedom Gate Title in California. More to come soon.

You might be asking yourself why Fox and Tozawa are teaming on January 27th since Fox and CIMA are Open The United Gate Champions. The reason is CIMA will not be able to make this tour due to obligations in Japan. The Young Bucks have made it clear that they want the Open The United Gate Titles and have challenged Fox to a match. DGUSA officials told Fox to pick any partner he wanted and Fox has selected Tozawa. This is a true once-in-a-lifetime dream tag team match on January 27th!

We have some notes about SHINE 6 on live iPPV at www.WWNLive.com on January 11th from Ybor City, FL. SHINE 6 will have a special 9pm EST. belltime. Also, the live iPPV option will be $2 higher on the day of the show and the iPPV + VOD + DVD option will be $3 more expensive on the day of the event. You can pre-order the iPPV now to avoid those cost increases. The main event will be one for the ages as Amazing Kong collides with Mercedes Martinez!

Here’s a teaser, we don’t believe any promotion has ever followed the format that the EVOLVE Title Tournament will follow. It will make being the #1 seed very important. The tournament will take place on April 5th at WrestleCon.

Thank you for reading the WWNLive Alerts. We are just getting started in 2013. We’ll be back soon with more on the new 3R series that will debut on our Youtube page on January 7th during WWE Raw, your chance to vote on the 2012 awards, EVOLVE tournament info and, of course, more matches and names for DGUSA in California.


CHIKARA has announced their 1st match for the Season 12 premiere event on February 9th entitled “All the Agents & Superhuman Crew” from Reading, PA that will see the newly reinstated Archibald Peck take on his arch-rival, “Mr. Touchdown” Mark Angelosetti.
