TJ Hawke’s Analysis:

Taylor had won the previous two freestyles in DGUSA.  By this show, Ricochet had already main evented a cable PPV, but the other three guys were still curtain jerkers.  Ricochet would later become a multiple title winner in Japan, Gargano would win the DGUSA singles title, and Taylor and Cannon both have challenged for DGUSA titles.  In other words, DGUSA has booked these guys well and they have gotten over.


This match was non-stop action and spots.  There was a really cool sequence that saw Gargano hitting a suicide dive on Cannon, Taylor hitting a big sommersault plancha on both of them, and then Ricochet hit a Corkscrew Asai Moonsault on everybody.  Back in the ring, the four men hit a shit ton of big moves on each other to the delight of the crowd; trying to recap everything they did would be foolhardy.  The finish finally came when Cannon got hung up in the corner, and Chucky T managed to nail the Awful Waffle on him


A crazy fun match that advertises how any DGUSA can be awesome.  It doesn’t matter where on the card it is.  I think DGUSA should strive to have a match like this on every single show.  Normally a match like this would run its course quickly, but I don’t think DGUSA runs enough shows for that to happen any time soon.

Match Rating: ***1/2
