Dragon Gate and CHIKARA: Together at Last! A video package plays on the big screen at the end of intermission announcing that Dragon Gate USA and CHIKARA have joined forces and will be working together in the future, starting with the July 25th Dragon Gate USA event at The Arena in Philadelphia!

The package showed a lot of focus on how Skayde was a trainer and an influence on both companies.




By no means at all do I like CHIKARA, but I would say this is a good business move on the part of GABE and DGUSA.

I know that this is about Dragon Gate but since it's the US promotion, is it really appropriate to put this thread in the Puroresu section?

well its more focused at Dragon Gate which is a japanese promotion so yeah it can stay here (& lets face it, this puro section needs some input Wink he he).
 
i think its a great move by both companies, chikara have got a great loyal following & dragongate definately is 1 to keep an eye on (esp with them doing a show in the UK at the end of the year)

I thought this section looked lonely and it fitted JUST enough to go here haha.

As long as I don't see those damn wrestlers just as ice cream cones sprinkling *sprinkes* on the ring, and DG guys selling them like thumbtacks, like what I saw on Best Of CHIKARA, it'll be cool.

Current mood:  excited

***THESE ARE HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE BLOG****
April 29th is a date I will never forget because it is when you made your voice heard. It was the day tickets were put on sale for the July 25th debut event in Philadelphia at The Arena. Going into the day we were hoping to sellout first row and move a couple of sections of second row. We ended up being blown away by what happened. First row seats were gone in less than two minutes. Then 2nd row sold out a few hours later. Third rows were gobbled up shortly after. Now we are more than halfway through the 4th row reserved and GA's are also rapidly moving out the door. You have sent a message loud and clear. You want something new, exciting and fresh and now we will deliver.

"Deliver" is the key word here. In my time with ECW and ROH I have written, said and seen a lot of HYPE!!!!! Paul Heyman didn't try to hide the fact that he loved to hype things. Heck, he even had a segment on the old ECW TV show called "Hype Central" with Lance Wright. I took the online route at my previous job by saying things like "BIG announcements are coming" or "a HUGE match will be signed next week" and so on. Now looking back I think the times have changed. Hype like this just leads to inevitable disappointment when the announcements can't possibly live up to people's imaginations.
    Most importantly, I believe that you are sick of hearing this kind of hype. You don't need to be led on, treated like a puppet or teased anymore. You don't need your intelligence insulted by being told what is a "big" or "huge" announcement or surprise. When something is good or cool you know it. It's time for all the wrestling promotions to just shut up and DELIVER.

I'm writing this on Tuesday and so far this week DGUSA has announced Shingo and Susumu Yokosuka for the 7/25 debut event in Philly at DGUSA.tv. I have to admit that if it was six months ago we would have hit you with a bunch of empty hype last week like "huge talent announcements coming next week that will blow your mind!!!" Not anymore. Now we just deliver. This is OUR company. You don't need to be talked down to. You are a part of this and you deserve the news in a mature, intelligent and on-the-level manner.

The bottom line is that the hype will be kept to a minimum. DGUSA is about delivering. That is our pledge to you. Now onto some other items:


-There is a lot on our plate now as we get this company off the ground. It is hard to believe that it's only been about 10-11 weeks since the initial concept was seriously discussed. Currently, we are finalizing the details on DGUSA's Chicago debut on Labor Day Weekend, working on some new DVDs and awaiting the printing of our two shirt designs (check them out in the Store section of www.DGUSA.tv). The shirts will start shipping either late this week or next week. Thank you for your patience as this company develops in front of your eyes.

-We are very pleased that there will be a bus trip from New York City to the 7/25 event. For more information email parkersbighead@yahoo.com or visit http://chikarafans.com/?page_id=2240

-CHIKARA will hold its anniversary weekend on May 23rd in Easton and May 24th in Philadelphia. Go to www.CHIKARApro.com for more information. I personally would like the recommend the new King Of Trios DVDs available now at SmartMarkVideo.com. I was at these shows live and afterwards was completely sold that CHIKARA was the perfect partner for DGUSA.

-2 Cold Scorpio and The Young Bucks have been added to the www.DGUSA.tv roster section. I have to admit that I'm really proud with how the roster section looks. There are also other various updates throughout DGUSA.tv.

-I'm very happy to welcome Mike Kehner as a referee on the 7/25 debut. I've known Kehner dating back to the ECW days and he is a great ref, hard working and brings veteran leadership to the locker room.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From what I understand now, 5th Row is 50% sold out, and GA is 75% sold out as of yesterday. Also VIP Balcony seats are moving quick at $40.

It's cool that he's being real with the fans, and "just delivering" however, I think they do need to advertise who is coming, as it's a easy ticket seller.

Dragon Kid vs Yoshino looks to be a great match, but SHINGO alone is worth the price of  GA to me!!

2 Cold Scorpio and Young Bucks are all 3 wonderful talents! Scorpio has worked in Japan and Germany for years, so he fits the USA/International Connection they may be trying to make. The Young Bucks recently made their ROH debut, but have long since been a staple in NWA and PWG. They are one hell of a tag team!

NEWZ!!!!: DGUSA is now partners with Highspots.com; Dawn Marie will be the "Live Event Hostes"; The event will now be called "Open The Historic Gate"; AAW and Hybrid Wrestling, along with CHIKARA are now working together;
