Dragon Gate USA will return to California for the first time in a year this weekend with the debut of former WWE star John Morrison, a big stipulation match and much more. When asked about the returnm Gabe Sapolsky commented, "We were so happy with the crowd last year that we knew we had to go back to California. I think we will have an electric atmosphere in the Pappy Pineda Dome in the Los Angeles area on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon before the Royal Rumble. It's such an intimate building and every seat will be a good one. We are bringing a tremendous talent roster with some LA area favorites and talent rarely seen in the area. Both cards are loaded. Santa Maria on Friday will be a lot of fun with John Morrison vs. Akira Tozawa. I can't wait to get out there."
