"OK, since I'm being asked a lot here is the deal with Wrestlemania weekend in New Orleans next year. DGUSA, EVOLVE, SHIMMER and Kaiju Big Battel will not be a part of WrestleCon. We will start the WWNLive Experience next year. There will be DGUSA, EVOLVE, SHIMMER, Kaiju Big Battle and other shows on Friday, all day Saturday and Sunday in New Orleans on Wrestlemania weekend. We will have more details hopefully by next week. However, the important info now is that it is not part of Wrestlecon and there will be DGUSA, EVOLVE, SHIMMER and Kaiju Big Battel plus other shows throughout the entire weekend at the WWNLive Experience."
When I reached out to Sapolsky, he noted that they would not be working with Wrestlecon this year as they could not come to a "business arrangement" with Highspots.com, the primary promoter/sponsor of the event due to the costs involved with the Wrestlecon venue.
Announced for the 7/27 Dragon Gate USA debut at the Elks Lodge in Queens, NY is Tony Nese vs. Akira Tozawa, which sounds amazing on paper. Chuck Taylor vs. Jon Davis is also set for Queens.
The 7/28 Fourth Anniversary Show at the Highline Ballroom in NYC will feature a CHIKARA tribute match featuring Jigsaw, Fire Ant, Frightmare & Amasis vs. Chuck Taylor, Ophidian & The Batiri. The Manhattan return will also feature The Young Bucks vs. Ricochet & Rich Swann.
