Akira Tozawa

  1. Keeping in theme with Clown's thread on Okada I decided to make one dedicated to one of my favorite Japanese wrestlers. Akira Tozawa.

    The third man to graduate from the Dragon Gate Dojo. He was used mostly as a jobber (even being sent back to the dojo) in the start of his career and then as a slightly comedic lower card heel. He was then sent to America on a two year training trip, and this was were he prospered. He had some show stealing matches in PWG with Chris Hero and Kevin Steen and a great showing in PWG's DDT tournament with Steen. He was also one of the Japanese wrestlers used during the start up of Dragon Gate USA. Once he returned to Japan he got a major push and is now one of the better heels in the company. Leading the stable Mad Blankey. Tozawa is according to me one of the most entertaining heels in the business and a great wrestler all around, neither a high flyer, brawler or technician. He's good at everything to a certain degree. He's currently a Dragon Gate and DGUSA MVP in my opinion.

    Here are some matches/tributes.

  2. Yep, Tozawa will be the future Ace of Dragon Gate, once he turns face. His charisma is off the charts. One of the greatest wrestlers on the planet.

    Go to DailyMotion and search for his name. Heaven.
  3. Doing that right now. Damn they have a lot of Dragon Gate.

    And yeah, Tozawa will be the icon of Dragon Gate once Cima retires.
  4. As great as Tozawa is, YAMATO and Shingo Takagi are my favorite DG wrestlers, followed by Tozawa, Hulk and Ryo Saito. And I consider YAMATO slightly, but just slightly better than Tozawa.
  5. Haven't seen that much of Shingo or Ryo since there weren't that much up on YT of them (Will find some on DM) Yamato is really good but I have only seen his DGUSA material, same with Hulk.
  6. DM is the place to go.

    You seen Danielson/Shingo and Danielson/YAMATO from DGUSA? Fantastic matches.
  7. Bumping this due to the renewed interest in this section. Also so that @seabs and @"Senhor Perfect" can watch my own personal Moses.
  8. I'll give these a shot when I have a chance.

  9. Also yeah I'm trying to bring the lol vanilla midgets section to life.
  10. I'm with you every step of the way lil'bro.
