DDT4 on May 22, 2009 - First tournament match announced!

Postby PWG_Silverback » Wed Apr 29, 2009 10:24 pm

On Friday, May 22, 2009, at American Legion Post #308 in Reseda, CA, eight of the best tag teams in professional wrestling will collide at Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4, and tickets for this event are on sale now at the DDT4 Mini-Site! Front Row tickets are $25, and General Admission tickets are $20!

The first match to be announced for Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4 is the opening round contest between Lucha Libre tag team specialists Phoenix Star and Zokre, Los Luchas, and the newly minted duo of Kenny Omega and Chuck Taylor.

Phoenix Star and Zokre were a part of 2008's DDT4, where they advanced to the second round, but were eliminated by the eventual tournament winners, Roderick Strong and Jack Evans. This year, Los Luchas are intent on making it all the way through the finals, and walking away with the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Tag Team Championship if The Young Bucks come into DDT4 with the titles.

Kenny Omega and Chuck Taylor may not have the years of experience that Los Luchas have, but they do have plenty of pluck, moxy, and grit, which when combined with their love of the antic, is a potent combination. Omega and Taylor's mission in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla their lives is the utter destruction of El Generico and his orphanage, Los Angelitos de El Generico. When Omega and Taylor heard that Los Luchas would be donating their tournament winnings to the orphans because El Generico's injury prevented him from competing in the tournament, that was all the motivation they needed to make sure Los Luchas wouldn't advance past the first round.

If they are able to deal with Phoenix Star and Zokre in the opening round of 2009's DDT4, will Kenny Omega nad Chuck Taylor be able to pull it together and focus on their second round opponents? Or will Los Luchas' wealth of tag team experience give them an edge over this brand new team? Find out on May 22 at Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4!


On May 22, 2009 at American Legion Hall #308 in Reseda, CA, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4 will feature:

DDT4 Block A Opening Round Match
Los Luchas (Phoenix Star & Zokre) vs. Kenny Omega & Chuck Taylor

Also scheduled to be in action:

thats an awesome but very interesting first matchup. I think we all kind of assumed Luchas and Taylomega would be both be fed to some of the bigger named teams that are in the tourney(Bucks, dynasty, MCMG, Hybrid Dolphins) in the first round. But this almost assures us a marquee matchup in each round. Plus this leaves us all in suspense of where the rest of the big teams are gonna end up in the bracket

Interesting.

Yeah, I'm a little surprised by this matchup. I figure Dolphins/Dynasty is a first-round match, considering how they've specifically been pushing that matchup, but I figured the Dolphins, Bucks, MCMGs and Hero/Strong would all make the semis. I'm guessing Hero/Strong is the odd team out... maybe dissension costs them their opening-round match. Makes Roddy, who's won the previous two, even more embarrassed, and even angrier at Hero.

Semis of Bucks vs. Taylor/Omega and Dolphins/MCMGs sound great by me, so no complaints.

DDT4 on May 22, 2009 - More matches announced!

On Friday, May 22, 2009, at American Legion Post #308 in Reseda, CA, eight of the best tag teams in professional wrestling will collide at Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4, and tickets for this event are on sale now at the DDT4 Mini-Site! Front Row tickets are $25, and General Admission tickets are $20!

The second opening round match for Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4 will be the next chapter in the budding rivalry between The Dynasty (Scott Lost & Joey Ryan) and the Hybrid Dolphins ("American Dolphin" Bryan Danielson & "Dolphin Master" Paul London).

Scott Lost and Joey Ryan are multiple-time Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Tag Team Champions, though the DDT4 has never been a part of their tag team success. Eliminated in the opening round of last year's tournament, The Dynasty hopes to make a much better showing this year by winning it all. But with the dynamic duo of the Hybrid Dolphins as their opponents and Joey Ryan's concern with the length of Chris Hero's World Championship title reign, will The Dynasty be able to focus on reclaiming their tag team glory?

Even though the team of Bryan Danielson and Paul London have yet to wrestle their first match as a tag team, the odds seem to favor the Hybrid Dolphins due to their individual skills. While Pro Wrestling Guerrilla cannot vouch for the oddsmakers at various offshore gambling websites, we can agree that both Danielson and London are incredible singles competitors. However, DDT4 marks their first test as a tag team, and due to the single elimination format of the tournament, there is very little room for error.

Will Bryan Danielson be able to put years of singles competition to the back of his mind and function as an efficient tag team partner? Will Paul London be able to consume enough bars of soap to retroactively combat the effects of Space Madness, or will his ill-fated journey to the Crab Nebula prove to be the undoing of the Hybrid Dolphins?

Also added to Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4 is a non-tournament singles contest between B-Boy and Human Tornado. The rivalry between these two men goes all the way back to Card Subject to Change in January 2005, where B-Boy not only managed to defeat Human Tornado, but to dislocate Tornado's shoulder in the process.

Then last month at One Hundred, the two met as a part of a Six-Person Tag Team Match that saw Tornado's side picking up the victory. Human Tornado has been sending out messages via Facebook saying that B-Boy is just a shell of his former self since returning to Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, and that 2005 Human Tornado was nobody, but 2009 Human Tornado is a two-time World Champion.

When offered the chance for rebuttal, B-Boy declined, saying he'd prefer to give his response in the ring. Will B-Boy still have the upper hand on Human Tornado when they meet at DDT4, or will the former world champion's grandstanding have gotten under the skin of "The New Age Punisher?" Find out on May 22 at Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4!


On May 22, 2009 at American Legion Hall #308 in Reseda, CA, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4 will feature:

DDT4 Block A Opening Round Match
Los Luchas (Phoenix Star & Zokre) vs. Kenny Omega & Chuck Taylor

DDT4 Block B Opening Round Match

Nice. I think everyone expected that Dynasty-Dolphins match, but it still sounds like a blast. B-Boy vs. Tornado sounds fun as well. Who could ever forget that disgusting looking t-bone suplex from their 2005 match?

As for the final matches, I can see them being Cutlers vs Bucks and MCMG Vs Hero/Strong. Sabin/Shelley vs Hero/Strong sounds like it would be great given their past matches with each other. Shelley vs Strong especially was always one of my favorite pairings. Cutlers vs Bucks just happened, but I think it would be the best possible use of the Cutlers here. I suppose Strong/Hero vs Cutlers, and Bucks/MCMGs II would also work though...

DDT4 on May 22, 2009 - Title match in Japan announced!

Postby PWG_Silverback » Fri May 01, 2009 10:10 am

On Friday, May 22, 2009, at American Legion Post #308 in Reseda, CA, eight of the best tag teams in professional wrestling will collide at Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4, and tickets for this event are on sale now at the DDT4 Mini-Site! Front Row tickets are $25, and General Admission tickets are $20!

Nearing the end of their tour with Dragon Gate, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Tag Team Champions Matt and Nick Jackson will be putting their titles on the line Sunday, May 3rd in Japan! In a match that could have huge ramifications for DDT4, The Young Bucks will be defending the titles against KAMIKAZE members Shingo Takagi and Akira Tozawa.

While Akira Tozawa has not appeared in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla before, fans may recognize Shingo Takagi from the 2007 Battle of Los Angeles, where he advanced to the second round before being eliminated by eventual tournament winner CIMA.

This title match is the last stop for The Young Bucks before DDT4, so a loss here would essentially turn the event into a Number One Contender tournament. Huge ramifications, indeed! Check back on Monday, May 4 for results of the World Tag Team Championship title match, as well as the complete tournament brackets of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4!

Agreed. It would be cool to have the second ever international PWG World Tag Champs be Shingo and Tozawa. My mind starts salivating over the idea of Shingo and Tozawa defending the tag titles at the Anniversary show against MCMG or Hyrbid Dolphins. That would rock the house!

The problem with Los Luchas is that they seem to be unreliable. They've been PWG wrestlers for 6 years, but how many shows have they consistently been on? Last year's DDT4 qualifiers and post-tourney spot run was their best streak in PWG history. However, after DDT4, they became on/off again.

They're a very good team, but they need those loose joints worked on. Also, a manager/valet wouldn't hurt, since those guys have never talked. It'd be worth trying, at least.

I think that is pretty much it. How many times throughout PWG's history have Los Luchas built up a good amount of momentum, only to end up missing a show and have to start all over again when they returned? It's really too bad, as Los Luchas could be a lot higher up than they are now.

In other news... here is the result of today's PWG World Tag Team Title defense in Dragon Gate:
5. PWG Tag Titles: Nick Jackson, Matt Jackson{W} (MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!) Akira Tozawa{L}, Shingo Takagi

They had me thinking SHINGO and Towaza would pull it off there for a second there...

DDT4 on May 22, 2009 - Final matches announced!

Postby PWG_Silverback » Mon May 04, 2009 2:58 pm

Image


On Friday, May 22, 2009, at American Legion Post #308 in Reseda, CA, eight of the best tag teams in professional wrestling will collide at Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4, and tickets for this event are on sale now at the DDT4 Mini-Site! Front Row tickets are $25, and General Admission tickets are $20!

Along with announcing the final two opening round matches for Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4, we are pleased to also report that yesterday in Japan, World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks successfully defended the titles against the team of Akira Tozawa and Shingo Takagi. That means that the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Tag Team Championship will be on the line throughout the entire DDT4 tournament! With their fifth overall title defense behind them, Matt and Nick Jackson will be coming into DDT4 with some serious momentum, which they'll need when they take on Brandon and Dustin Cutler in a Block A Opening Round Match!

After successfully defending the titles against the Motor City Machine Guns at Ninety-Nine, The Young Bucks seemed to go from perennial underdogs to tentative favorites overnight. A bit surprised by this new status, Matt and Nick Jackson offered long-time training partners The Cutler Brothers a shot at the titles the next night at One Hundred. The Bucks say that no one knows them better than Brandon and Dustin Cutler, and if there are two men that could bring the Bucks back to earth after such a big victory, it would be the Cutlers.

Though the Cutlers were unable to defeat The Young Bucks at One Hundred, they impressed the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla Board of Directors enough to earn themselves not only a spot in DDT4, but a rematch with the Bucks as well! While they've only had a handful of matches in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, the Cutler Brothers are sure to be a tag team force in the coming months and years, and a victory over their rivals The Young Bucks would be a huge first step for Brandon and Dustin.

The final DDT4 opening round match to be announced once again pits a longstanding tag team against a newly formed duo, as Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley, the Motor City Machine Guns, take on Roderick Strong and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Champion Chris Hero.

On paper, it might seem like a mismatch, but Roderick Strong's record not only in previous DDT4s, but as a tag team competitor in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla must be taken in to consideration. Strong has held the World Tag Team Championship on three separate occasions, two of which came after winning DDT4. Not to mention the tag team experience of World Champion Chris Hero, who along with Claudio Castagnoli formed one of the most successful tag teams in recent memory. With a wealth of individual experience and plenty of time to prepare before the tournament, Chris Hero and Roderick Strong will likely be a force to be reckoned with at DDT4.

What more needs to be said about the team opposing Chris Hero and Roderick Strong? They are one of, if not the most popular tag teams in professional wrestling today, and have held titles all around the world. Originally scheduled to be participants in the very first DDT4, contractual obligations kept the Motor City Machine Guns out of the tournament, and according to the Guns, that's what allowed Roderick Strong's team to win. After returning to Pro Wrestling Guerrilla at Ninety-Nine, Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley found out first hand how the level of tag team wrestling in PWG has increased since they've been gone.

When they left the building after Ninety-Nine, Sabin and Shelley had a suitcase full of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla DVDs which they've been using to scout their competition in the tournament. Above all else, the Guns would love to have a rematch with The Young Bucks as a tournament final, but thanks to countless hours spent strategizing, Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley feel prepared for any team they might meet in the tournament. Although this is their first DDT4, the Motor City Machine Guns feel like it was always intended to be their tournament, and will fulfill their destiny with their victory this year.

On May 22, 2009 at 8:00PM at American Legion Hall #308 in Reseda, CA, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's DDT4 will feature:

DDT4 Block A Opening Round Match
Los Luchas (Phoenix Star & Zokre) vs. Kenny Omega & Chuck Taylor

DDT4 Block B Opening Round Match
The Dynasty (Scott Lost & Joey Ryan) vs. "American Dolphin" Bryan Danielson & "Dolphin Master" Paul London

DDT4 Block A Opening Round Match
The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) vs. The Cutler Brothers (Brandon & Dustin Cutler)

DDT4 Block B Opening Round Match
Chris Hero & Roderick Strong vs. Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley)

Non-Tournament Singles Match
B-Boy vs. Human Tornado

Nice. I think those were the best possible pairings here. This should be another great show.

BOLA4ever wrote:After the semis are done are they gonna immediately go into the finals?


I would imagine they would go to intermission after the semi-finals, then come back with B-Boy vs Tornado then go to the finals. That would give the final two teams a lot of time to rest up.
