EVOLVE 13: Gargano vs. Fox DVD is now available for pre-order in the DGUSA.tv Store or by calling 267-519-9744. It will ship on January 14th. Many call this the best EVOLVE card of the year with must see matches like Johnny Gargano vs. AR Fox for the Open The Freedom Gate Title, El Generico vs. Sami Callihan, Low Ki vs. Jon Davis, Fox vs. Samuray Del Sol vs. Ricochet vs. Jigsaw and more. Order it with EVOLVE 12: Fox vs. Callihan in a DVD 2 Pack Deal for just $25!
EVOLVE will crown its first champion on April 5th at WrestleCon at the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, NJ. We will now release the first significant information on the tournament:
-The EVOLVE Title Tourney will closely follow the NFL conference playoff format.
-This means the 1st and 2nd seeds will get byes.
-There will be two wildcard matches with the winners facing the 1st & 2nd seeds in the semi-finals.
-The winners of those two matches will fight in the finals to determine the first champion.
-It is possible that the lower seeded wildcard match will be a Freestyle, which would make getting a higher seed even more important.
Eligibility & Seeding:
-The seeding will be determined by a combination of Record and winning % with the EVOLVE Leaderboard used in tiebreaker situations. We understand there will not be a perfect system, and any issues will be resolved on the Dragon Gate USA events in California.
-A wrestler must have competed on no fewer than six (33% of total) EVOLVE cards to be eligible. This is to insure that the competitor has at least been a semi-regular over a span of time in EVOLVE.
-An exception to the 33% rule is the possibility of sending out an international invitation to the tournament.
We will have much more on the tournament in the upcoming weeks. The next WWNLive Alerts will also start to explain how instituting a title will change EVOLVE. Tickets for April 5th are now available at www.WrestleCon.com or by calling 267-519-9744. This card has a special 4pm start time and is at a great, centralized location. There will also be several non-tournament bouts on the card.
Two major tag team matches have been signed for Dragon Gate USA on January 25th in Santa Maria, CA. You already know that FKA John Morrison vs. Akira Tozawa will take place on the card. Now the Dragon Gate style of tag team wrestling is coming to California. The matches for Jan. 25th are:
-The Young Bucks vs. Sami Callihan & Arik Cannon of D.U.F.
-Jimmy Susumu & Ryo Saito vs. Johnny Gargano & Rich Swann
Dragon Gate USA is getting set to return to the Los Angeles area in just under three weeks. The cards are beginning to really come together. While DGUSA will bring several top stars you normally don’t see on the West Coast like Open The Freedom Gate Champion Johnny Gargano, AR Fox, Samuray Del Sol, Akira Tozawa, Jimmy Susumu, Ryo Saito and many others, the local California scene will also be represented. On January 26th in Huntington Park, CA there will be a DGUSA signature FRAY! with West Coast based talent. The first participant is standout athlete Brian Cage. This will be Cage’s long awaited DGUSA debut. More names will be announced soon.
Ryo Saito vs. Samuray Del Sol has been signed for January 27th in Huntington Park, CA. The two met in an amazing tag match at DGUSA Freedom Fight 2012, the last DGUSA event, when Del Sol teamed with El Generico vs. Saito & Genki Horiguchi. The result saw Del Sol pin Horiguchi. Now it comes down to Saito vs. Del Sol in the LA area.
We’ll be back by Wednesday with an extensive look at the DGUSA events in California including Johnny Gargano’s matches in Huntington Park. His next title defense is close to being signed and its something the LA area has never seen before.
Tickets for all three DGUSA events in California are now on sale in the DGUSA.tv Store or by calling 267-519-9744.
