Welcome back to Open the Voice Gate – Rewind and Rewatch, where Case (https://twitter.com/_inyourcase) and Mike (https://twitter.com/fujiiheya) are Rewinding and Rewatching the Dragon Gate USA era of shows.
It’s the 2nd Anniversary triple-shot weekend, and it kicks off on 6/3/2011 in Revere, Massachusetts at the Wonderland Ballroom with Fearless 2011. Before the show, we step into the timeline to talk about the DGUSA events post-Wrestlemania 2011 leading up to this weekend of shows. A note on Larry Sweeney, Jimmy Jacobs’ sudden departure, Chuck Taylor’s injury, and DGUSA dealing with the unit shakeup in Japan are the big moments from April into June of 2011.
After that, Case and Mike discuss an incredibly uneven Fearless 2011 that has both of them wondering if the famed DGUSA slide is beginning. Featuring the return of Masaaki Mochizuki, they reflect highly on his return, a Susumu Yokosuka and Ricochet match that would foreshadow matches to come, and an United Gate main event with the now Former World-1 teammates of Masato Yoshino and PAC defending against former Kamikaze USA in YAMATO and Akira Tozawa. The gang also wonders if this is one of the worst venues in DGUSA history, a lot of DUF, and a ridiculously long Austin Aries vs Johnny Gargano match.
