After a typically long layoff Open the Voice Gate (well, 2/3rds of it at least- no Milo this week, but he’ll return soon!) is back to discuss all things Dragon Gate! But first, we talk about deathmatches in BJW, deathmatches in Brooklyn (that one of our hosts attended!), the joys of unfettered access to Japanese television, and more. Once we turn our attention to DG, our first topic concerns our 2017 OTVG Year-End Awards, which are still open for voting through January 7th and you can vote on here: bit.ly/otvgawards. John & Mike each give their picks for all the major awards, including MVP, Most Outstanding, Match of the Year, Show of the Year, Best Tag Team, Best Unit, and more!
Our show reviews cover two events: the Memorial Gate in Sendai show from 11/26 and the 12/5 Fantastic Gate Korakuen featuring Doi Darts, as we break down both shows in full. We then preview this week’s upcoming events, the 12/20 Korakuen & 12/23 Final Gate cards. Finally, we wrap things up with our Retro Rewatch match, as we cover T-Hawk & Eita vs. Shingo & Tozawa from Kobe World 2014 (which you can watch here: https://goo.gl/yw1oPV). It’s another packed 2 hours full of OTVG goodness, so don’t miss it!
