— Bobby Eaton underwent a successful surgery to install a pacemaker earlier today. On top of that, early reports say that Eaton was active and moving around after the procedure.
— DGUSA sent out the following today…
After extensive negotiations with Open The Freedom Gate Champion Johnny Gargano a unique situation regarding the DGUSA Title has developed for July 28th in Manhattan. Gargano has presented scenarios where CIMA, Akira Tozawa, Tomahawk T.T. and EITA all deserve a title shot. They include the fact that CIMA is Open The Dream Gate Champion and has an ongoing rivalry with Gargano. Akira Tozawa can be called Gargano’s greatest in ring opponent. Tomahawk T.T. defeated Gargano at EVOLVE 21 and was then embarrassed by Gargano at the end of the show, resulting in Tomahawk wanting another match vs. Gargano. EITA has emerged as the top prospect in the DGUSA/Dragon Gate system. On top of it, DGUSA was originally built on matches featuring Dragon Gate wrestlers vs. Dragon Gate wrestlers and the 4th Anniversary Show on July 28th will feature some odes to the past. Gargano has proposed a match idea and used his power as Champion to make it happen. This is what is now set for July 28th in Manhattan:
