DGUSA: Uprising

Mississauga, ONT – 5.8.2010

Tyson Dux vs. Gran Akuma

Fellow Kamikaze member Jon Moxley accompanies Gran Akuma. Dux and Akuma fight for a wristlock. Dux trips Akuma into a headlock. Akuma rolls into a pin for two. Akuma shoots Dux off the ropes and takes him down in a headlock. Dux skullf*cks Akuma into the canvas. Akuma hits a sole butt. Dux ducks the cheetah swipe. Akuma counters a sliding elbow with a crucifix pin for two. Dux and Akuma trade forearms and kicks. Akuma kicks Dux’s leg out and turns him into a half crab. Akuma kicks away at the inside of Dux’s thigh. Akuma applies pressure to Dux’s legs on the mat. Dux escapes and drops Akuma with a back suplex onto his head. Dux gives Akuma a few chops. Dux hits a DDT for two. Akuma hits a fallaway boot and a snapmare driver for two. Dux hits a superplex. Akuma O’Conner rolls Dux for two. Both guys go back and forth with pin attempts. Akuma catches Dux with an Oklahoma roll and holds his tights for the pin at 7:48. These two made a good pairing for each other. Dux is a lot better than most people who are brought in for FRAY’s and whatnot. Both guys looked good, but the finish took the wind out of my sails. **1/2

World-1 (Naruki Doi & PAC) vs. CHIKARA Sekigun (Mike Quackenbush & Jigsaw)

PAC and Quack fight for the advantage on a wristlock. Quack takes PAC over with a blend of Lucha rolls and mat wrestling. PAC and Quack but on a fun sequence which PAC wins with a hurricanrana and dropkick. PAC sunset flips Quack, and Jigsaw flies in with a crossbody. Quack assists Jigsaw with sending PAC to the floor. Doi comes in and the CHIKARA duo double teams Doi. Jigsaw and Doi now go back and forth, ending in a standoff. Doi wrenches on Jigsaw’s arm and tags in PAC. PAC hits a springboard legdrop and locks on a figure four headscissors. Doi comes in and applies a figure four at the same time. PAC hits a corkscrew press. Quack comes in and takes out PAC and Doi. Quack hits a senton and Jigsaw follows with a doublestomp for two. The CHIKARA team take over, keeping PAC grounded and concentrating on doing damage to his arm. PAC escapes and tags in Doi. Doi sets up Quack and Jigsaw in the corner and hits them both with the Dai Bosou. Quack and Jigsaw retreat to the floor, and PAC follows with a springboard corkscrew moonsault. Back in the ring, Doi sends Quack to the apron. Doi elbows and dropkicks a trapped Quack in the chest. Doi hits a somersault senton as Quack dangles on the middle rope. Doi drops Quack with a Rydeen Bomb for two. PAC hits a standing corkscrew press and Jigsaw breaks the pin. PAC slingshots into an ace crusher on Jigsaw for two. Jigsaw counters a springboard clothesline and hits an enzugiri and the Mad Scientist bomb. Doi makes the save. Doi blocks a strike from Quack and gives him a flurry of rapid fire open hand chops to the face. Quack gets an elbow and sunset flips Doi into an enzugiri from Jigsaw. Quack mule kicks Doi, and Jigsaw hits a brianbuster for two. Jigsaw cracks PAC with a running dropkick and puts him up top. Jigsaw dives over Doi and rolls into a superkick. Jigsaw hits a bridging German suplex pin on Doi, but PAC hits Jigsaw with a shooting star press to break the pin attempt. Quack gives PAC a shotei and the Quackendriver III. Doi breaks the pin and eats a superkick from Jigsaw. PAC gives Jigsaw an enzugiri, and a shooting star dropkick to the back. Doi hits the Doi 555 and the Bakatare Sliding Kick for the pin at 15:35. This was a very fast-paced fun match that showed off some of the best of either team. The CHIKARA Sekigun have really shown they can hang with Dragon Gate’s best. Doi and PAC are incredible and I hope PAC becomes a frequent competitor in DGUSA. ***3/4

Quack puts over World-1, while putting down YAMATO at the same time. Quack mentions how last night YAMATO jumped him and Jigsaw after their match with Akira Tozawa & Gran Akuma. Quack tells YAMATO (who is now coming out from the back) how he needs to rally his troops so that Kamikaze USA and the CHIKARA Sekigun can finish their issue once and for all. Fellow Kamikaze members Akira Tozawa and Gran Akuma attack Quack and Jigsaw from behind. YAMATO joins the fray, and just like one the first DGUSA show, YAMATO gives Quack a low blow. YAMATO gives Jigsaw one as well for good measure. Kamikaze USA leave with their heads held high as Quack and Jigsaw lick their wounds.
