Welcome to Under the Radar.
For the uninitiated, this is Cageside Seats' one stop shop for indie wrestling.
From Ring of Honor to CHIKARA to Dragon Gate USA, we've got the latest news from everything that isn't WWE or TNA.
Because quite frankly, both of those companies can offer some pretty paltry offerings.
So if you want something new and creative, the independent wrestling scene is where to go.
Below the jump is the latest news for this weekend including SHINE Wrestling 2's internet pay-per-view (iPPV) and CHIKARA's doubleshot of shows which will crown this year's Young Lions Cup champion.
Check it out!
Ring of Honor (ROH)
The biggest news coming out of ROH -- besides the Kevin Steen attack at Boiling Point being staged -- is former Anarchy Championship Wrestling (ACW) Heavyweight Champion ACH will be making his promotional debut at Death Before Dishonor X in September.
Speaking of ACW, a little stable by the known of The Submission Squad has locked up the final slot in this year's King of Trios tournament. Evan Gelisitico! Gary Jay! Pierre Abernathy! Davey Vegas! Learn these names because they will be our new wrestling overlords soon.

Dragon Gate USA/EVOLVE/SHINE Wrestling
SHINE returns tonight on iPPV! You can order the event here for as low as $10 to see some of the best wrestling action the fairer sex has to offer.
Here's the card:
Mercedes Martinez vs. Jazz
Rain vs. Santana
Made In Sin (Taylor Made and Allysin Kay) vs. MSEERIE (MsChif and Christina Von Eerie) <-- AWESOME team name
Sassy Stephie vs. Mia Yim
Jessicka Havok vs. Reby Sky
Portia Perez vs. Leva Bates
Sojo Bolt vs. Taeler Hendrix vs. Heidi Lovelace
Kimberly vs. Su Yung
On top of having a few ACW veterans -- Portia Perez, Su Yung, Jazz, Christina Von Eerie, Mia Yim and Jessicka Havok -- the main event alone between the aforementioned Jazz and Mercedes Martinez promises to be the most hard-hitting match of the year.
I'll likely pick up the video on demand of this show as I won't arrive home in time to see it live.
And seriously, MSEERIE is the dopest tag team name ever.
Oh, and Daffney is hosting the whole thing!
Anarchy Championship Wrestling
Distrust, Dismay and Antisocial Behavior.
