Dragon Gate USA “Freedom Fight” premieres on pay-per-view TONIGHT on iN DEMAND, TVN, Viewer’s Choice and Bell ExpressVU. Check your local listings for time (should be 10pm), channel and the very affordable price. In fact, this PPV is a great deal next to what TNA and WWE are offering. Just check out what some critics/journalists have said about “Freedom Fight” after seeing an advance screener:
“…this had two matches that were off the charts, a singles match with Davey Richards against Yamato that you would think couldn’t be topped, and then it was equaled or even topped by the tag match that followed with Masato Yoshino & Naruki Doi vs. Shingo Takagi & Dragon Kid. Every match on the show was good, and if you want to see great action before a heated appreciative crowd, it’s worth going out of your way to see.” – Dave Meltzer in Jan. 25th Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Meltzer gave the two matches he mentioned ****1/2 and every match ***, which has only happened a handful of times in the 20 year history of The Wrestling Oberver Newsletter.
“Overall, you can’t but love a PPV that features two incredible matches at the level of Richards vs. YAMATO and Kid & SHINGO vs. Doi & Yoshino. DGUSA has built itself a nice little niche, trying to provide kickass wrestling matches and a wrestling product that is based around the opposite of what just about every other promotion is doing these days. You really can’t go wrong with this show for $20 and I absolutely give it a thumbs up.” – Mike Johnson at PWInsider.com.
“I highly recommend ordering this show on PPV. It was a really fun show from start to finish. There are three awesome matches on the card, which includes an early MOTYC between Yamato and Davey Richards.” – Sean Radican at PWTorch.com, who gave “Freedom Fight” an 8.5 overall rating.
“The positives were the positives you’ll get on any DGUSA show, great professional wrestling before a largely rabid crowd. The Naruki Doi & Masato Yoshino vs. Shingo & Dragon Kid and Davey Richards vs. YAMATO matches were both in the ****1/4 range.” – Bryan Alvarez in the Dec. 20th Figure Four Weekly.
