Where can you watch Dragon Gate? Is their stuff available legit somewhere? I feel like I'd love their stuff, but haven't seen much of it.

I absolutely loved the 4 way. I watched it during MOTM and voted it pretty high. It's the craziness I love from Dragon Gate.

I still have to watch the Twin Gate match. Everyone's saying Amigos Vs. Jimmys was really good.

Yoshino vs T-Hawk 5/30
Dead or Alive was pretty great. That was the only match I had left from the ppv since I watched the rest of the show.

I'll have to watch that before Kobe. Has BxB Hulk Vs. Yoshino shown up yet?

Fantastic. Can't go wrong with a Yoshino marathon.

Will get to the CHAMPION GATE shows later today. Have super high expectations for K-Ness/Tozawa. Should be a really fun show. I really like the direction Dragon Gate is going right now. They had a quiet start to the year, but they've really started to turn things up before Kobe World, which should also be an incredible show.

Thought Yoshino vs Hulk was excellent. Similar in some ways to Goto vs Nakamura. It built slowly but the last 5-10 minutes were absolutely incredible. Hakata was going crazy for it.

Just watched the July 2nd Korakuen. Once again Dragon gate put on another top-to-bottom engaging card that as a viewer, you wouldn't even feel burn out by the time the main event matches starts. Speaking of main events, man did the 2 main event matches delivered BIG time. I know alot of people preferred the International generations trios over current gen/new gen match, I absolutely loved the main event and more ways than not actually followed up to the already high standard the previous match set. I love my pro wrestling to be long, worn out drag out fight affair and combined with DG's spotfests and a screaming Korakuen crowd, nothing in the world can match their atmosphere. Shingo and Big R closing stretch was *PHEW WIPING OFF MY SWEAT* all kinds of REAL MEN BATTLE i can't even describe it.

I preferred the Current Gen vs New Gen too but that might be because I don't really like Ricochet, I think I'm the only guy that prefers him as Prince Puma. The most exciting match coming out of that has to be Shingo and Big R, Big R has much more upside than any of the new guys and Shingo is one of the most underrated guys they have. Shingo>Tozawa!

Are you counting T-Hawk and Eita in that "new guys" umbrella?

Well DG called them that, I know they aren't really new but for the sake of this I am including them.

So you see Big R as having "much more upside" than T-Hawk, the guy who is clearly being groomed to be the next ace? That's a bold statement. I personally feel Eita is the best wrestler out of the three but that's just personal preference, but upside wise I'm not sure where you're getting Big R as far ahead of T-Hawk from. By upside do you mean who will end up having the most decorated career with a promotion building around them, or are you referring to something different?

Upside may have been a poor choice of words, I tend to see things from a selfish point of view and what entertains me more, don't really think of the bigger picture. T-Hawk is being groomed as the next ace as you said but I don't see him improving much more than he already has, I don't care too much for his in-ring work honestly. Big R I feel has "unlimited potential", I think in a few years he will be miles better than T-Hawk in the ring and is already more entertaining.

Honestly, this could all just come down to the fact I like one over the other. just like how I think Kagetora is better than almost the entire roster.
