Results submitted by Zim, PWTorch VIP member
(1) Jigsaw & Fire Ant beat D.U.F. (Arik Cannon & Pinkie Sanchez) after a combo double-stomp/Jig-N-Tonic.
(2) Akira Tozawa beat Samuray Del Sol after hitting his arm-trap delayed German suplex. Fantastic match.
Jon Davis came to the ring in street clothes and said that after what he did to DGUSA champion Johnny Gargano last night, there wasn't going to be a match. Enter Gargano, also in street clothes, and the Anything Goes match was underway.
(3) Jon Davis beat DGUSA champion Johnny Gargano in a non-title match. Davis won in less than a minute following a lariat. Gargano was easy prey for Davis with his injured back.
Post-match, Davis went back to attacking before Gargano super-kicked him off the apron through a table. Gargano went back through the curtain, and as Davis gingerly made his way to the back, Gargano dove off the set rigging onto Davis and continued the brawl for several more minutes. The story coming out of this is the chance that Gargano won't be physically capable of defending the title Sunday night. Later in the night, they announced that if Gargano was unable to compete, a new DGUSA champ would be crowned.
(4) Super Smash Bros. (Player Uno & Player Dos) beat World-1 Int'l (Ricochet & Rich Swann) after the Fatality (double team Gory Bomb/springboard front flip cutter).
(5) The Gentleman's Club (Chuck Taylor & Drew Gulak & Orange Cassidy w/Swamp Monster and Colonel) beat The Scene (Caleb Konley & Scott Reed & Cheech (w/Larry Dallas & Trina). The finish came when Chucky T hit the Awful Waffle on Cheech. More great comedy from the Gentleman's Club in this one, which, while it may not be great for wrestling, they bring a wildly entertaining aspect to DGUSA.
(6) Sami Callihan beat El Generico 2-1 in a Two-out-of-Three Falls match. The first fall came about 30 seconds in - the bell rang and Generico immediately hits his Yakuza kick, then rolled Callihan up, only to have Callihan reverse the pin and pick up the surprise fall on a small package. The second fall went to Generico coming off a brainbuster. The third fall was Sami locking in the Stretch Muffler after working Generico's leg all match, and finally dropping down and grapevining the legs to get the submission. Candidate for match of the night from these two.
(7) DGUSA tag champions CIMA & A.R. Fox beat The Jimmys (Ryo Saito & Genki Horiguchi) to retain the DGUSA United Gate Titles when Fox hit Ricochet with Lo Mein Pain followed by CIMA with the Meteora. Match of the night, hands down. Just a great tag team match from four absolutely incredible athletes.
Overall, it was another great in-ring show from DGUSA with three matches at or above four stars, in my opinion. Tozawa-Del Sol, Calligan-Generico, and Fox/CIMA-Jimmys were all worth going out of your way to see, and there wasn't a disappointing match on the show (other than the Gargano-Davis brawl, which is clearly setting up a story).
It also appeared that the crowd here was only slightly hotter than the previous night from Everett, still not nearly as reactive or fun as I've seen on DGUSA iPPVs in the past. I'll be back Sunday with my in-person report from Night 3, Freedom Fight, from Deer Park, N.Y.
