Welcome to's live coverage of DGUSA's Open the Ultimate Gate in Atlanta, Georgia at the Presidential Ballroom.

Pre-Show Notes:

Before the PPV taping began, Sugar Dunkerton, Dave Scherer's favorite indy wrestler, had a fun match against Kyle Matthews. I was setting up but from what I saw this was real entertaining.

DGUSA was ecstatic about how their Internet broadcast went last night. There were issues early with a modem that wouldn't connect due to an issue with Comcast and they ended up streaming at a lower bandwidth than they planned, but it all worked out well.

Ricochet suffered an ankle injury on Friday night and will not be competing today. CIMA made the call to pull him from the match. He tried to gut it out last night and CIMA decided it was best to pull him.

Matt Hardy is visiting backstage.

There are about 400-450 fans in attendance, down from the crowd last night by a little bit.

Johnny Gargano vs. Jimmy Rave.

They did some nice back and forth wrestling early on. Gargano, on the apron, speared Rave through the ropes. He scissored Rave in the corner and nailed a series of elbows. Rave charged him but Gargano faked him out and Rave went to the floor. Gargano hit a nice tope and turned it into a DDT. They battled on the apron where Rave nailed him with a Uranage on the mat. Rave is really motivated.

Rave nailed a snap superplex off the top. Rave went for the shining wizard but Gargano ducked. Rave nailed a headscissors into a Crippler Crossface but Gargano fought out of it. They charged each other with clotheslines. Good stuff.

Gargano finally locked in the Gargano Lock for the submission after a great back and forth sequence. Really strong opener.

Your winner, Johnny Gargano!

Six Way Freestyle: AR Fox vs. Arik Cannon vs. Silas Young vs. Lince Dorado vs. Rich Swann vs. Sami Callihan

Cannon and Dorado started out. Dorado hit a springboard into an armdrag. Cannon caught him with a kick but Dorado turned it into a rana. Swann and Young tagged in and went back and forth with chops. Swann was caught in an exploder. Young picked him up for a slam and dropped him into a kick. Fox tagged in and had a hot sequence until being kicked by a Cannon superkick.

Dordo hit a springboard moonsault for a two count on Young then nailed a dropkick in the corner. Fox hit a nice frog splash. Dorado cut him off on the ropes for a superplex but was caught with a Russian leg sweep off the ropes. They had an incredible dive sequence culminating into a 450 springboard splash by Swann and a twisting dive off the ropes.

This left Callihan and Cannon going face to face and back to back. Swann got involved and they drilled him with a series of moves. They continued doubling up on Young. They then looked at each other and said the hell with it and walked out on the match, So we are left with four.

Dorado hit a flipping piledriver on Swann. He went for a shooting star legdrop but missed. Swann superkicked him and hit his leaping 450 splash for the pin.

Your winner, Rich Swann!

Stalker Ichikawa vs. Brodie Lee

Stalker tried to chop away at big Lee but there was no effect. Lee shoulderblocked him and he nearly flew out on the ring. Stalker tried to German suplex Lee and he was drilled. Lee hit him with the runng boot and killed him. All comedy.

Your winner, Brodie Lee!

The Blood Warriors continued beating Ichikawa. This brought out Ronin with Swann rapping their theme song. Lee grabbed the mic and said that he came for a fight and Stalkr didn't get the job done, so he said let's fight now.

Brodie Lee vs. Chuck Taylor

Lee went for a powerbomb but it was turned into a rana. Taylor hit a dive to the outside. Lee caught him with a superkick. Lee took him to the outside and continued the beating. He set up Taylor against the ringpost and chopped him. He went for another but Taylor moved. Lee cut off Taylor and rolled him into the ring.

Lee continued beating on Taylor and scored a two count. Taylor came back with a kick to the head, a missile dropkick and a swinging DDT for a two count. Lee nailed the Black Hole Slam but Taylor kicked up. Lee nailed him with the running boot in the corner.'

Lee drilled Taylor with a big back suplex for another two count, so the story is that Taylor has a lot of resiliency. Lee went for a powerbomb but Taylor slipped out and drilled him with his knees to the jaw. Taylor hit a quebrada for a two count.

Taylor went to the top but was cut off and nailed with a butterfly suplex by Lee. Lee drilled him with a big boot and a sitdown powerbomb for the pin.

Your winner, Brodie Lee!

Good back and forth match. Taylor has a good connection with the crowd.
