night One of the tourney, Eli Everfly and No Limits Champion Damian Drake was put to sleep in the final elimination on night Two to win the trophy. It was a grueling tournament and after some rest, he returns to the ring facing a brutal gauntlet of opposition in June. He even makes his AAA debut to close out May on the 31st.
On June 9th DJ makes his DOA Wrestling debut in Portland, Oregon against the "Baddest Mother F***er in Pro Wrestling" Schaff. The Star from Pennsylvania has found a second home in the Northwest and is as athletic as he is powerful. It's for Shaff's DOA Championship in the place he's dominated since his arrival. While it's certainly a tough out James is no stranger to big opponents and takes on the “GODDAMN MAN” Tyler Bateman the following week in Imperial Beach, California at Ground Zero: Encore on June 15th.  The night before he faces Major League Wrestling’s (MLW) Brian Pillman Jr. with PCW ULTRA. This is in preparation for his match at the FSW 10th Anniversary at Sam’s Town Live against former WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJ Perkins.
After James won the Limitless Tournament Perkins stunned the FSW crowd when he came out to congratulate his future opponent. Perkins makes his return to the Independent scene the week before against Adam “Brooksy” Brooks at ULTRA, so he will have some time to shake off the rust before the Sunday night show in the Fight Capital. I reached out to Douglas and asked about this “June Gauntlet” and his response was fitting for a guy who faces top opposition regularly, “I didn't even realize that, but these are the kind of matches that I want to have,” he continued, “I want to wrestle the best guys from all over. These are all huge matchups for me, for multiple reasons. I'm ready to put up or shut up, and of course, be Relentless.”
