Kevin Steen looks like he has dropped 30 to 40 pounds. So excited for Steen/Tozawa vs. Generico/Ricochet.

Hero's Asai moonsault looks incredible.

I'll be podcasting with a guy who went to both nights tomorrow. I'm psyched. I actually just got DDT4 and Card Subject to Change III in the mail yesterday. I think PWG's really dealing this year.

The Akira Tozawa vs. Mark Briscoe scream duel ruled all.  Speaking of Tozawa....

Wow. Just wow. Tozawa's the man for taking that. Steen's the man for the execution. Holy fuck.

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's EIGHT  on July 23 Gets Even Bigger!
By Silverback, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla Staff Writer

North Hollywood, CA -As if Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's eighth anniversary event, EIGHT, wasn't already special enough, we have a late addition to the lineup that makes things a little more noteworthy: Dragon Gate's CIMA will be making his Pro Wrestling Guerrilla return on July 23, 2011 at EIGHT!

It was just a few weeks ago at All Star Weekend 8 that the fans of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla bid farewell to Akira Tozawa, the Dragon Gate star that was on a one year learning excursion in the United States. While his fans, and most of his fellow wrestlers, were more than willing to give the respect and thanks due to Tozawa for his contributions to Pro Wrestling Guerrilla in the last year, two men were a bit... reluctant. In fact, the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla Tag Team Champions Matt and Nick Jackson were so offended by what they felt as Akira Tozawa stealing the spotlight from the world's premiere tag team that they attacked Tozawa after his tough tag team contest with the RockNES Monsters. Though Chris Hero and Kevin Steen were eventually able to run off The Young Bucks, the lack of respect from the champions was clear. To make matters worse, the Bucks were telling everyone that would listen, and many that wouldn't, about how they ran roughshod over every tag team they faced in Dragon Gate, and the only reason they left was because there was "no competition."

Once word, and footage, of The Young Bucks disrespect toward both Tozawa and Dragon Gate reached Japan, the outrage was palpable. CIMA reached out to the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla Board of Directors and asked, not for a shot at the World Tag Team Championship, but for a shot at the "boys that call themselves men." Unfortunately for CIMA, the lineup for EIGHT was already announced, and The Young Bucks were slated the defend the titles against Joey Ryan and Scorpio Sky, newly reunited as The Dynasty. However, Joey and Sky have had their fair share of run ins with Matt and Nick Jackson in the past, and knew just how easily the Bucks can get under someone's skin, so they graciously stepped aside to allow CIMA to take aim at The Young Bucks in a non-title match! The Dynasty will receive their title shot at the next Pro Wrestling Guerrilla event.

One part of the plan was complete for CIMA, but he still needed a partner. Akira Tozawa would be a natural choice, but having just recently returned to Japan, and fighting tooth and nail with Shingo Takagi means he would be unable to return. But if not Tozawa, why not his tag team partner, "Mr. Wrestling" Kevin Steen? Though Steen is already slated to face "The Man That Gravity Forgot" PAC, he has agreed to team with CIMA to not only defend the honor of his friend Akira Tozawa, but to also get his hands around the scrawny little necks of The Young Bucks one more time. Once again, Kevin Steen will be wrestling twice in the same night out of not just love of the sport, but also for the love of beating people up. Perhaps it's time to change his nickname to "Mr. The Hardest Working Man in Professional Wrestling?"

He looks fat.  Is that Matt Hardy under the mask?

Yeah, he does look like a wide body (like how he was the last time he was around a couple years back). Still a Guerrilla Warfare teaming with Steen against the Bucks is going to be crazy.
