This is going to be a busy week with DGUSA/EVOLVE Alerts. We are going to send out three Alerts, starting right now, each focusing on one of the EVOLVE cards in Florida at the end of the month. We’ll also have some updates on Dragon Gate USA’s summer events on July 28th in the Detroit area and July 29th in Chicago as well as some exclusive offers and who knows what else over the next couple of days. Let’s get to it….
June 12th: The 2nd annual Style Battle tournament will be a four man round robin tournament that will take place at the EVOLVE events on June 28th in Ybor City, June 29th in St. Petersburg and June 30th in Jacksonville. The field is set. We had previously announced Lince Dorado, but he has had to pull out due to commitments with Florida Underground Wrestling. The four competitors for Style Battle are now:
-AR Fox (Returning Champion, High-Flying Style)
-Bobby Fish (Puroresu Junior Heavyweight Style)
-Jon Davis (Power Style)
-Tommy Taylor (European Style)
The results will count towards each competitor’s Record in EVOLVE. We’ll have even more information on how the tournament will work tomorrow.
June 12th: Jon Davis is putting it all on the line at Style Battle. Jacksonville is his hometown and this could be his last match or the next step in his career. Davis made this statement on Twitter last night: “So I’ve been getting quite a few DM’s with people asking about what’s going on with me and why I haven’t been around lately. To save time I figured I’d answer publicly. It’ll take a couple messages to get it all out, but hopefully it’ll answer some of the questions. I have gotten a lot of positive feedback on my matches with Finlay and Low ki (at EVOLVE 12 and 13), a lot of people said they were my best to date but I disagree. Having great matches doesn’t pay the bills, winning does. I’m standing at a crossroad, I’m 32 with a family to feed and I can’t continue to dwell in the mid card. Wrestling HAS to start paying my bills. If it doesn’t, I’ll find something else that will. Hoping for something to happen won’t feed my children. I was given a tremendous opportunity against Ki and Finlay and I didn’t win. I didn’t elevate myself. I can’t do this anymore. That’s why at the end of the book it cam promo, I left my boots. I quit. BUT with that being said, I’ve had time to cool down and think. So I’m going to give it one last shot. It’s do or die, I need to win every match from this point out or I need to retire. No one loss, no going .500. That doesn’t elevate me, that doesn’t get me paid more. That doesn’t feed my family. So @BookItGabe, put me in the style battle. It will end in MY home city of Jacksonville. That way if I lose, I go out in front of my friends and family. But if win, I will continue to build my wins and my climb to the top of the leader board. This HAS to end with a title around my waist. EVOLVE NEEDS A TITLE and I NEED TO BE ITS FIRST CHAMPION. I saw what the DGUSA title has done for Gargano. Opening match to champion. That will be me. I’ll earn my shot and win. Or I’ll walk away. Thank you to everyone that had supported me.”
