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 time to close out Mania Weekend 2012 with Mercury Rising 2012 from the Deauville Resort on Miami Beach on 3/31/2012. Johnny Gargano finally makes his first defense of the Open the Freedom Gate title on a DGUSA show as he faces Masato Yoshino. The Six-Man Tag returns as the Mad Blankey team of Akira Tozawa and BXB Hulk team with Low-Ki versus the Warriors International team of PAC and Ricochet along with Masaaki Mochizuki.

Before hitting the beach, Case and Mike talk about the ENORMOUS news of what happened in the wrestling world in the spring of 2012. Bushiroad buys New Japan Pro Wrestling and Kazuchika Okada has his first IWGP Heavyweight Title defense against Tetsuya Naito! Chris Hero signs with WWE! Speaking of WWE, things are afoot with potential shake-ups in their developmental program!
