Ladies and gentlemen; This… is SERIOUS!
Sorry, I had to channel Excalibur there - but yes, all eight teams in the DDT4 tournament have been announced!
- The reuniting FUTURE SHOCK (PWG World Champion Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly)
- Two time DDT4 winners THE YOUNG BUCKS (Nick & Matt Jackson)
- Returning to PWG for the first time in almost two years THE BRISCOE BROTHERS
- Dragon Gate’s own WORLD-1 INTERNATIONAL (Ricochet & Rich Swann)
- Defending DDT4 champions, and PWG tag team champions SUPER SMASH BROS. (Player Uno & Stupefied)
- THE DOJO BROS (Eddie Edwards and Roderick Strong)
- THE UNBREAKABLE FUCKIN’ MACHINES (“Unbreakable” Michael Elgin & Brian Cage)
- And finally, the wild card, the reunited team of EL GENERICO AND KEVIN STEEN!PLUS! In a match just announced, Sami Callihan will take on Drake Younger… in a KNOCKOUT OR SUBMISSION ONLY MATCH! This will be the second of the duo’s three match series, with the winner getting a title shot in the near future. Callihan is up one win to zero, following his win at Mystery Vortex.
Folks, this is going to be one not to miss! Since inception, DDT4 has always been a must-see affair, as the best tag teams in the world go to war with only one team coming out on top. The 2011 and 2012 DDT4 shows went down as some of the best in company history and the trend looks to continue this coming January!

Davey Richards (c) vs. Michael Elgin - ROH World Championship match from Wrestlemania weekend 2012
I saw this match for the first time last week. When it happened in March, people told me it was the match of the year already and a five star classic. Six months later when I finally saw it, I couldn’t disagree. This is my match of the year so far and people are gonna have to work DAMN hard to out do this one.
Oh, you haven’t seen the sick new trailer for Battle of Los Angeles 2012 night one? Sucks to be you, you’re missing one of the most exciting videos on youtube! Luckily FYPWG has you hooked up, so give it a watch and share!
Reblogging for reasons! Watch if you want to be my friend.
Pro Wrestling’s Guerrilla’s ninth anniversary show next month is shaping up to be a must watch, as most of their shows are.
The stacked card features some of the best independent talent in the United States in matches that could only happen in PWG. The event takes place on July 21st at the usual PWG haunt in Reseda - front row tickets sold out in 8 minutes but tickets to the event are still available.
Triple Threat Ladder Match for the PWG tag team championships - Super Smash Brothers (c) vs. The Young Bucks vs. Future Shock
Any time any combination of these three teams has met in a match, it has been a match of the year candidate. No exceptions. These are, for my money, the three most exciting tag teams in all of wrestling and they have a huge degree of chemistry together. Simply putting all three together in one match would be enough to get fans excited, as the chaos that would result in would probably mind blowing - but a ladder match? Let me get my life savings and give them to you PWG. All three teams are exciting athletic teams who no doubt see a ladder match as their chance to shine and given the high standard for PWG ladder matches (there has only been two, but the most recent Steen vs. Generico bout was one of the greatest ladder matches ever) this match may not be for the weak at heart. Expect death defying stunts, mindless brutality, and high flying like you’ve never seen before.
PWG World Championship: Kevin Steen (c) vs. Willie Mack
If you haven’t been following PWG, then you don’t know that Willie Mack has the potential to be THE next biggest thing in independent wrestling. Operating mainly on the West Coast, with PWG being the biggest promotion he works for - Willie Mack has quickly won round the fans, which is no mean feat when you consider he himself was just a PWG admirer sitting in the crowd a few years ago. Many of PWG’s talent, including Steen, have told stories of how surprised they were when one day a guy walked into their locker room to prepare for a match that night - and they immediately recognised him as that guy from the front row a few years ago. But Mack isn’t just some wannabe who got a shot, he’s the real deal. At times compared to Samoa Joe, he’s a hard-hitting, heavy-lifting 300-ish pounder, who flies around the ring like a guy half his size. Plus, with his understated charisma and great performances against established stars like Chris Hero and Davey Richards, the loyal PWG fans have been chanting “next world champ” at Willie for months now. Going against Steen, beloved as a God tier performer in Reseda, Willie will be a part of a big match atmosphere on PWG’s ninth birthday. While Mack is beloved and people will be happy if he wins - this isn’t a classic case of the fans loving the new guy and hating the established star. PWG fans love them some Kevin Steen and it’ll be interesting to see how divided the crowd will be. The match should be interesting as you have two big, unconventional heavy hitters who can fly around to boot, and whose styles should compliment each other well. Might not be a show stealer technically, but will surely be a great match and will have ten times the emotional investment of most indie matches this year.
“Unbreakable” Michael Elgin vs. Sami Callihan
In an “only in PWG” match, fans will get to see two of the hottest commodities in all of indie wrestling square off in something of a dream match in terms of future stars going at it. Make no mistake - if you want to know who is going to be the next big thing in indie wrestling for the remainder of 2012 and going into 2013, you just need to watch this match. Both men are coming off match of the year candidates (Elgin vs. Richards - 2012, Callihan vs. Finlay - 2011, 2012) as well as an impressive list of great showings elsewhere, and both men recently debuted in PWG to huge admiration from the fans. The previously mentioned MOTY contenders are part of why people look at Callihan and Elgin as the future of independent wrestling in the US and potentially bigger stars later in their careers. Elgin has been taking ROH by storm lately, with many fans gearing up for a main event push as a babyface, while Callihan has been the breakout star of Evolve and DGUSA after many years impressing in CZW. The next 12 months are going to be exciting for these guys, and what better way to kick it off than a match you’ll ONLY see in PWG. The match will be brutal, as Callihan’s vicious, no-nonsense brawling goes up against the “modern day powerhouse” (copyright Jim Cornette) style of Elgin. Elgin is that classic guy who will make you come out of your seat when you see his feats of strength, and Callihan is the guy who makes you shout “OH!” at the type of your lungs when he slaps the taste out of his opponents mouth - and talks trash while he does it. These two could steal the show, but it’ll be difficult going against the ladder match.
Also in action, TJ Perkins, Joey Ryan, Chuck Taylor, Roderick Strong, the debuting Jake Younger, and following his breakout performances of late Brian Cage takes on Eddie Edwards.
