Main Event #1 – Open The United Gate Decision Match
CIMA & AR Fox vs. Ricochet & Rich Swann
CIMA & Ricochet never lost the tag titles, but they are now in different stables.
They were each told to choose a new partner for this decision match. This is the first time this mentor/protege combination have been on opposite sides. This starts a new era of tag team wrestling in DGUSA/EVOLVE with these two exciting, fresh duos.
Main Event #2 – Dream Match
El Generico vs. Akira Tozawa with Christina Von Eerie
The term "Dream Match" is thrown around loosely these days. It applies here when it comes to arguably the two most outstanding wrestlers in the world. This incident only serves to heat it up.
Main Event #3 – I Quit Match
Johnny Gargano vs. Chuck Taylor
There is a long history between these two. Simply, they hate each other. Now the feud will come to an end and there will be no rules. It goes on till one says I Quit. Expect this to get violent. Here's a video look at their history leading to last month's title match, which was so wild that tonight's rematch was signed.
Special Attraction Match
YAMATO vs. Jon Davis
YAMATO is the only man to hold both the top titles in Dragon Gate and Dragon Gate USA. He wants his top spot back. Jon Davis has said he will win or go home. Can Davis follow up on the momentum of Style Battle to defeat someone of the stature of YAMATO?
