Gabe Sapolsky Talks About Current State Of Dragon Gate USA

Gabe Sapolsky has sent out the following:

This is a special edition WWNLive Alerts. We normally try to fill the WWNLive Alerts with quick news bits, specials, pictures and videos. This edition will change the pace. It will focus on three key areas of DGUSA/EVOLVE, our strengths and weaknesses as well as what we are doing to make each brand better for you. There is a very personal conclusion to this lengthy email blast.

We do need to note that the Black Friday sales at www.DGUSA.tv have been extended until this Friday, Nov. 30th, at midnight EST. This means you still have a few hours to save 50% on DGUSA DVDs, 33% on EVOLVE DVDs and 40% on all DGUSA/EVOLVE/Dragon Gate gear. This is your last chance, as the sales will definitely be over for good this Friday at midnight EST. No codes are needed and everything is already marked down in the DGUSA.tv Store or order by calling 267-519-9744.

Now it's time for the State Of DGUSA/EVOLVE Address from Gabe Sapolsky. Let's get to it....

Roster

We are extremely proud of the roster we have built over the last few years. It's been an amazing journey watching the new generation grow and develop into today's new stars. This is the strength of DGUSA and EVOLVE.

2012 was a landmark year. We said goodbye to PAC and Brodie Lee, who both signed WWE contracts. Recently, we saw Jon Moxley, who has an extensive history in DGUSA and EVOLVE, make a sudden impact in WWE as Dean Ambrose. These developments prove that the new wave of major league talent is on the current DGUSA/EVOLVE roster.

DGUSA/EVOLVE does not have tomorrow's stars, our roster features the best going today. We have strengthened our roster this year with over 15 talents signed to contracts. In addition, our positive work environment and growth potential has allowed us to re-sign several of our established stars to multi-year contracts. This means we have secured a tremendous roster for you to follow.

We are also pleased that several talents have been able to travel to Japan to have a strong presence in Dragon Gate. Ricochet is a legitimate star in Japan. Open The Freedom Gate Champion Johnny Gargano, half of the Open The United Gate Champions AR Fox, Rich Swann, Larry Dallas and now Scott Reed have all had successful tours of Japan in 2012.

Another positive development was the arrival of guest stars, particularly El Generico. He has been a significant force in both DGUSA and EVOLVE after his unforgettable surprise debut at Mercury Rising 2012. Other notable guests in 2012 include Colt Cabana, The Young Bucks, Sara Del Rey, Tommy Dreamer, Sabu and some extreme favorites at EVOLVE 10. There is no telling who will show up in 2013.

This might sound like a lot of hype and bragging, but we are this proud of our roster. We are very excited about the possibilities going into 2013.

Live Events

It was a very mixed year for DGUSA and EVOLVE live events. We entered 2012 with a goal of running more live shows. We felt that only running three EVOLVE cards in 2011 stalled the momentum of the promotion. In addition, we felt there was too long of a gap between DGUSA weekends in 2011. The solution was to form a union between the two brands, run more EVOLVE cards between DGUSA weekends and build momentum. This was both a success and failure.

The first failure was losing three of our mainstay, "go to" buildings due to various reasons. BB King's in Manhattan wasn't happy with the food and drink sales at our events and would not book anymore shows. The former ECW Arena in Philadelphia and the Ace Arena in New Jersey both closed down. This left us without any homes in the Northeast. We are still struggling to find a new one. We do have hopes for The Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ, which is a first class, centralized facility.

This has led us to try new areas with mixed results. The year started out hot with great crowds in Philadelphia for the final Arena show, Los Angeles and Miami. However, we were unable to draw good crowds in new areas like the Carolinas and Florida. We also had decent results in the Midwest and Toronto, and were devastated by Hurricane Sandy at the last DGUSA tripleshot.

However, we do feel positive about the fact that we tried some new areas. We hope to continue that in 2013 and even build on what we started this year. We do not rule out running shows anywhere.

We were very pleased with the in ring quality of all the shows and felt more events provided a stronger product for you to follow. The outlook for 2013 is on the upswing. WrestleCon could be the biggest crowds in DGUSA/EVOLVE history. There are some leads in the New York City area for a new venue. A West Coast return in the works and there is some other stuff in development. We recognize a crowd can make or break a show. We will do our best to bring the most exciting action with a fun, good live atmosphere to you.

Distribution

We realize this is a controversial area with DVD vs. iPPV distribution. We also know that we promised that DVDs would be out faster and while we have had several recent releases, we haven't delivered. You don't want to hear excuses, you just want DVDs. Now we will fill you in on what's going on. So here's the deal.

DGUSA/EVOLVE is a mom & pop small business operation with limited resources, both financially and from a manpower perspective. Late last year we lost a key member of our staff for several months due to a medical emergency. This was a huge setback. However, we were getting back on our feet with DVD production when we had to make some choices.

It is no secret that DVD sales are down everywhere. You just have to walk into the shrinking DVD section of Best Buy to see that. Now don't get us wrong, we still know that DVD collectors are plentiful and many of you want to own our shows. We appreciate that and we will always serve you with high quality DVDs that play anywhere in the world with top notch packaging and production. Our recent Mercury Rising 2012, Open The Ultimate Gate 2012, Heat and EVOLVE 11: Finlay vs. Callihan DVDs prove that.

We were faced with a choice earlier this year: Put our limited staff and financial resources into DVDs or www.WWNLive.com iPPV? It is clear that iPPV is the future. We heard your demand for it. The growth in iPPV sales, both live and On Demand, backed that up. We made the decision to put our resources, for the time being, into WWNLive.com.

We have been very pleased with the results. We had flawless streams all year, except for an under five minute hiccup due to human error in January, which won't happen again. WWNLive.com On Demand also has every DGUSA and EVOLVE show in history available to watch anytime. This has given us the opportunity to run a huge sale the whole holiday season where every show is 33% if it happened in 2012 to almost 50% off for all shows from past years.

In addition, we have seen growth with several partners including Kayfabe Commentaries, Combat Zone Wrestling, Extreme Rising, Family Wrestling Entertainment and $5 Wrestling all presenting live iPPVs through WWNLive.com. The emergence of this platform also paved the way for the SHINE promotion to be launched. In addition, several other promotions have taken advantage of the On Demand option to showcase their brands.

You can also now watch iPPVs at WWNLive.com on your iPhone, iPad, Droid device and just recently Xbox 360 and PS3. We have learned that both Xbox 360 and PS3 play our On Demand streams flawlessly, but you can only watch live events on PS3.

This has all happened in under two years! We are thrilled with the results and the best is yet to come. There will be a WWNLive Roku channel launched in early 2013.

This is all good news for DVD collectors. Why? This means that we have gotten WWNLive established so we can turn our resources back to DVD production. We will get the DGUSA and EVOLVE DVDs you want in your hands. In the meantime, we do have several great DVDs for you to catch up on, which you can get at huge discounts until this Friday night.

If you have any questions or comments about the above explanation we welcome it. We appreciate all of your support. It is only with your business that we are able to make WWNLive.com better for you and speed up our DVD production. Thank you for making it happen.

Conclusion

First of all, we appreciate you reading this State Of DGUSA/EVOLVE Address. I want to hear your feedback. What are we doing that you like? What can we improve on? What can we make better for you? Shoot us an email at Help@DGUSA.tv or use the social network buttons at the bottom of this WWNLive Alerts to give us your thoughts. We can only get better with your feeback.

2012 had its successes and failures. In 2013, we will build on the successes and correct the failures. We will end 2012 in style with EVOLVE 18: Gargano vs. Callihan on December 8th and build momentum to the huge WrestleCon weekend on April 5th-7th.

For me, 2012 has been a year of personal growth. My son turned three-years-old in October. I had no idea how to deal with kids before he was born. In fact, I'll admit I pretty much ignored that kids existed. The last few years I have learned how to be a father. When I was with ROH, the company was my life. I lived it 24/7. The result was me going kinda crazy. It's not something I can do now. It might sound weird, but it took me until a few months ago to figure out how to juggle being a dad and a pro wrestling booker. I have now found that balance.

I am really enjoying the Road To WrestleCon we started a few months ago. I look forward to the next chapter unfolding on December 8th. From there we will add some more events leading to the EVOLVE Title tournament on April 5th and then the biggest DGUSA shows of the year on April 6th and April 7th.

You will see EVOLVE, for lack of a better word, evolve over the next few months to the tournament. The EVOLVE concept was originally developed by Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan) and I. Davey Richards then came in when Bryan left and had influence. However, we were unable to move forward with him. We tried to stay true to the original concepts, but now a new vision for EVOLVE is emerging. It's not going to be a radical departure from the EVOLVE you know now, but it is time for some tweaks and changes. The new vision will be develop up until April 5th and the crowning of the first EVOLVE Champion.

Our next WWNLive Alerts will be sent when the new www.DGUSA.tv is live. In the meantime, please take advantage of our extended Black Friday Sales in the DGUSA.tv Store. They expire on Nov. 30th at midnight EST. and then they are done for good. Thank you for your time and support. We will close with a look at the EVOLVE 18 lineup.

Sincerely,
Gabe Sapolsky

American Wrestling Legend Buddy Roberts Passes Away

The following is from WWE.com:

Buddy Roberts, one-third of the legendary Fabulous Freebirds, passed away at age 65.

Roberts first made an impact on wrestling in the 1970s, working his way through the territories as one-half of a tag team called The Hollywood Blonds with Jerry Brown. The duo racked up championships across the United States before parting ways late in the decade.

As the 1980s began, so did The Fabulous Freebirds. The technically sound Roberts joined forces with the charismatic Michael "P.S." Hayes and the hard-hitting Terry "Bam Bam" Gordy, and Southern wrestling was never the same. The trio ran roughshod over the South before landing in Dallas and World Class Championship Wrestling.

On Christmas night 1982, The Freebirds made history — not only for becoming the first WCCW Six-Man Tag Team Champions, but also more notoriously for turning against Kerry Von Erich, setting off a rivalry that is remembered as one of the greatest in history. The battles between The Freebirds and The Von Erich family are legendary for their sheer brutality and the passion they inspired in Texans.

In the midst of the Freebirds–Von Erichs war, Roberts developed a rivalry with Iceman King Parsons. It began when Roberts cut off Iceman's signature braids, ultimately culminating with a Hair vs. Hair Match at Reunion Arena in June 1983. Leading into the bout, Roberts taunted Parsons with a Nair-like substance he called "Freebird Hair Cream," claiming he would take the rest of Parsons' hair with it.

Roberts used nefarious tactics to win the match, only for the official to restart the bout, during which Parsons smeared the cream over his cranium. The Freebird writhed around the mat, clutching what was left of his once-luxurious blond hair, to the fans' delight. Over the next few weeks, fans giggled as Buddy Roberts appeared on television wearing a blond wig held in place by boxing headgear, claiming his hair had grown back immediately.

After stints in WWE, AWA and Cowboy Bill Watts' UWF, Roberts returned to WCCW, this time as the manager for the animalistic Samoan Swat Team. Buddy Roberts left the industry shortly after WCCW's closing in the late 1980s.

In the years since he left the ring, Roberts survived a battle with throat cancer. Buddy Roberts will always be remembered as a tenacious competitor.

Press Release Regarding Mick Foley's New Book

MICK FOLEY™, WWE® AND DK PUBLISHING RELEASE A MOST MIZERABLE CHRISTMAS

Family Christmas story with anti-bullying message available now in North America

Indianapolis, IN – October 17, 2012 - WWE Legend Mick Foley brings to life a brand new Christmas story for the WWE Universe™. A Most Mizerable Christmas features many of the top WWE Superstars as children - including CM Punk®, John Cena®, and Sheamus® - trying to teach The Miz® a valuable lesson about not being a bully in school.

"As an author and father, I am overjoyed that families will be spending time together reading A Most Mizerable Christmas this holiday season," said Mick Foley. "The WWE Superstars and Divas, transformed into children inhabiting Wrescal Lane, learn a fun-filled but important lesson about treating others with tolerance and respect - making the book a perfect tag-team partner for WWE's Be a STAR campaign."

For years, The Miz has bullied the kids of Wrescal Lane yet managed to stay on Santa’s list of good boys. A new kid arrives in town and shakes the foundations of The Miz’s selfish beliefs. Will the new kid (with the help of Santa and a very special elf) help everyone on Wrescal Lane – especially The Miz – enjoy Christmas?

"When WWE approached us about A Most Mizerable Christmas, we were immediately drawn to Mick Foley’s fun and heart-warming holiday story," said Mike Degler, Publisher. "As we began to dig a little deeper into the content, we uncovered the anti-bullying message that is a wonderful lesson for kids on showing tolerance and respect to others."

About the Author – Mick Foley is a WWE Legend and New York Times best-selling author. Foley Is Good: And the Real World is Faker Than Wrestling and Have a Nice Day! both reached #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list. He is also the author of three children’s books: Mick Foley’s Halloween Hijinx, Tales from Wrescal Lane and Mike Foley’s Christmas Chaos.

WWE Referee Grilled By WWE Board of Directors

The following is from WWE.com:

Brad Maddox has a lot of explaining to do, and it looks like he'll have to start doing it very soon.

The rogue WWE referee who went into hiding after attacking Ryback with a shocking low blow at WWE Hell in a Cell has been summoned to WWE Headquarters in Stamford, Conn., to be questioned by a Board of Inquiry Thursday morning.

As first reported by WWE's Breaking News mobile alert service, Maddox was suspended for his controversial actions, which arguably cost Ryback a victory over WWE Champion CM Punk inside Hell in a Cell. But will there be additional, more severe punishment on the way for Maddox? Could the rookie official implicate that another party was involved in his choice to inject himself physically into the pay-per-view main event?

Maddox's assault on the previously undefeated Ryback prompted the hulking Superstar to unleash his rage on the referee, and later Punk as well, with a Shell Shocked on top of the Hell in a Cell structure. For his part, the WWE Champion has flat-out denied any culpability, proclaiming to the WWE Universe on Monday night's Raw that he didn't have anything to do with Maddox's actions.

The WWE Board of Inquiry assigned to this case will have its hands full as they try to uncover what drove Maddox to such a jaw-dropping decision. Even though Maddox has already been suspended, WWE fans continue to clamor for answers while Ryback prepares to clash with Punk once again in a traditional 5-on-5 Elimination Match at Survivor Series.

What information will be gleaned about Maddox by the Board's investigation Thursday morning? Stick with WWE.com for updates throughout the week on this developing story.
