DG “Infinity Mugendai” iPPV Hits a Solid Double

Dragon Gate’s first ever live iPPV offering (following up last months taped “Dead or Alive” iPPV show), which was essentially a live episode of Dragon Gate Infinity (the 300th edition of the show that I’ve been voting ‘Best Weekly Televsion Show’ in the WON Awards for so many years straight that I can’t even recall what I voted for the last time I didn’t vote for Infinity), was exactly what you would expect from a Dragon Gate show. A collection of sprints with hot action, creative spots, flawless execution, and long promos with heavy emphasis on storylines, with plenty of Dragon Gate’s unique comedy sprinkled in.

New Japan ‘Invasion Attack’ Continues To Raise The Bar

At this point, if you aren’t paying attention to New Japan Pro Wrestling, you probably never will. And that’s your loss, because you’re missing something truly special. Especially if you are one of the many fans disenfranchised with the national television wrestling scene in the United States. A compelling alternative is directly below your nose, and if you are willingly ignoring it, well, it’s hard to feel bad for you if you don’t like what you see on Monday & Thursday nights.
