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. 

2012 in DGUSA begins with “Open the Golden Gate 2012” in Los Angeles at the Westin Airport Hotel on 1/27/2012 and Case and Mike are here to talk all about it!

There’s some housecleaning that’s to be done first as they close out 2011 by talking about the Wrestling Observer Newsletter awards for 2011 and their personal top ten matches from DGUSA & the Dragon System in 2011.

After that, it’s time to go through everything that led up to this 2012 DGUSA kickoff! Blood Warriors and Junction Three’s war is coming to a close with a couple of big place setting events right before their Loser Must Disband match. There’s this random kid that Ultimo trained that showed up at Wrestle Kingdom to challenge Hiroshi Tanahashi. And what’s this thing about a DGUSA/Evolve Merger and saying Farewell to the Arena?

After all of that, it’s time to review Open the Golden Gate! Low-Ki makes his DGUSA debut against BXB Hulk in the opener and the Young Bucks make their return in LA! Quite possibly one of the only good table matches in history happens as AR Fox renews his rivalry against Sami Callihan and an incredible United Gate match between the Spiked Mohicans and Masaaki Mochizuki & Jimmy Susumu main events DGUSA’s west coast premiere!

2012 news begins at 00:22:43 and the show review begins at 00:50:27 this episode.
