Post by InYourCase » Tue Jun 30, 2015 10:17 pm

07/02/2015 Tokyo, Korakuen Hall ~THE GENERATION GATE~
0. Shachihoko BOY vs. Kenichiro Arai
1. U-T, Yosuke Santa♡Maria, Kotoka, El Lindaman vs. Gamma, Jimmy Kanda, Mr. Quu Quu Tanizaki Naoki Toyonaka Dolphin, Z
2. Don Fujii, Ryo "Jimmy" Saito vs. Mondai Ryu, Punch Tominaga
3. K-ness, Cyber Kong vs. Dragon Kid, Super Shisa
4. Masaaki Mochizuki, Kzy vs. Genki Horiguchi H.A.Gee.Mee!!, Jimmy Susumu
5. International Generation 6 Man Tag Team Match: YAMATO, Naruki Doi, Masato Yoshino vs. CIMA, Ricochet, Matt Sydal
6. Current Generation vs. New Generation 6 Man Tag Team Match: BxB Hulk, Shingo Takagi, Akira Tozawa vs. T-Hawk, Eita, Big R Shimizu

This looks like one hell of a card. Hopefully I'll be able to catch this live.

07/20/2015 Hyogo, Kobe World Kinen Hall ~Pro Wrestling Festival in KOBE 2015
-Open the Triangle Gate 3 Way Championship Match: CIMA, Gamma, Don Fujii vs. Masaaki Mochizuki, Dragon Kid, Kzy vs. Ryo "Jimmy" Saito, Jimmy Susumu, Genki Horiguchi H.A.Gee.Mee!!
-Open the Brave Gate Championship Match: Akira Tozawa vs. Eita
-Open the Twin Gate Championship Match: YAMATO, Naruki Doi vs. Ricochet, Matt Sydal
-Open the Dream Gate Championship Match: Masato Yoshino vs. T-Hawk

Amazing looking card thus far. Hate seeing Mochizuki get stuck in a Triangle Gate cluster, but that's the best looking Triangle Gate cluster we've had in a long time.

Kobe World is already shaping up pretty great. Those two six mans look a lot of fun too.

Really can't wait for Kobe World. YAMADoi vs Ricochet/Sydal is going to be ridiculously good.

This was a great show. Big R being put in his place physically and verbally was too good. Really interested to see how he responds at Kobe World.

Shingo and Big R had some awesome interactions in the match, but I was absolutely blown away by how great their post-match beef was. Hulk coming in and saving him will probably lead to another Shingo/Hulk match down the line, which I'm perfectly okay with. I also find it amazing how Dragon Gate will be building off of Shingo/Big R stuff for years to come. Remember, Shingo pinned Big R in his debut. Those two have been going back-and-forth ever since then.

Ricochet being the most over person on the show came as a surprise to me. It wasn't even close, really. Korakuen loves them some Ricochet.

Just watched the Sydal/Ricochet/CIMA vs Doi/YAMATO/Yoshino match. Really so much fun. Ricochet looked like a man on a mission in that match. Everyone in it was great. Sydal/Ricochet vs Doi/YAMATO is going to be special.

At Scandal Gate we will finally get some shakeup in the Unit department. The solid money here has to be on the Jimmyz right? They are the oldest faction and are the bottom unit in the company now. I could also see Mad Blankey being forced to disband, but I think we will get a Doi Yamato split in a few months and that will kill the unit.

I'm super behind on Dragon Gate. I haven't watched much since Champions Gate back in Feb/March. The only thing I watched was Tozawa Vs. Shingo which was great and Tozawa Vs. Dragon Kid which was also great. Tozawa legit may be one of my favorite wrestlers in the world. He has that natural babyface charisma that just keeps you engaged and wanting to cheer for him.

ANYWAYS long story short, what recommendations would you guys make before I watch the Generation Gate show.

A lot of DG has been taken down on RealHero's accounts so it might be harder to find some matches.

He's putting stuff up on Veoh now (check his Twitter for the link). I guess most of the older shows are already on other places online, so hopefully only a bit was lost as far as already being online.

Poor Hulk; he gave a fantastic performance against Yoshino, including facials and acting like every kickout was devastating to him, and that the more Yoshino got up, the less he knew what to do. Basically, exactly what you want your champion to do if the goal is to put over an up-and-coming talent as the next champion. Like say...T-Hawk?

Yoshino, on the other hand, did his usual thing. Which was good, but nothing so out of this world to make me think, 'Man, they made the right decision to have Yoshino put over T-Hawk.'
