Our buddy Lyle C. Williams, the hardest working and greatest photographer in independent wrestling, has finally gotten around to providing us his photos for the last four CHIKARA events of season eight! He’s been hard at work tinkering these to make them perfect, even skipping out on a CZW show in November (yes, we’re saying it was for us and we’re sticking to it!) in order to bring these to the fans.

Sorry for the lack of updates up here as of late…we’ve been incredibly busy working on a new project that we hope to roll out within the next day or two. I think it’ll deliver on expectations. You’ll know when it hits! But hey, we’ve got a LOT of CHIKARA news to catch up on…so let’s do that!

First off, the schedule for the first quarter of 2010 has rolled out, and it’s a heavy one! While King of Trios has been confirmed for season nine, it’s gonna be a long road to get there as there are five big events in the first three months of the year that see CHIKARA expand into new territory and revisit some old ones! January 31st sees the year kick off in Philadelphia as CHIKARA presents “A Touch of Class”. Then, the convoy steamrolls through Pennsylvania in February as Reading gets hit with “The Mint Condition” on the 27th, and Schuylkill County gets its first CHIKARA action since Barnesville’s “New Star Navigation” all the way back in 2007 with “A World of Comforting Illusions”. Finally, fret not, all Lehigh Valley fans, as you’ll see the return to Easton on March 20th with “Wit, Verve and a Bit o’ Nerve” which is complimented with CHIKARA’s New Jersey debut the following day as Westville, NJ hosts “Testimony of Evil”. A packed schedule in the first quarter of the year, and we’ll have all updates on those cards as they roll out right here!

However, the biggest news from CHIKARA so far in the off season relates to both the ever-expanding Brüderschaft der Kreuzes and the future of Leonard F. Chikarason. It was announced that Chikarason has been moved to strictly commentary duty, as the election for Director of Fun for 2010 was won by none other than Dieter VonSteigerwalt, a man who the public knows nothing about except for his seeming affiliation with the Brüderschaft. What will 2010 bring under the rule of VonSteigerwalt?

The DVD’s for the 2009 Season Finale events have been released. Head over to Smart Mark Video now to pick up “Throwing Life’s Instructions Away” and “Three-Fisted Tales”.

So there’s a rumor flying around that something kinda big happened this past weekend at “Three-Fisted Tales”. Something about guys revealing themselves, forming a new unit, maybe you’ve heard about it yourself. If you’ve been on our message boards since about 7 PM EST on Sunday night, you have to have heard the biggest news to hit CHIKARA in season eight – the Brüderschaft is here, and the war has come.

What is the Brüderschaft, you ask? If you’ve been living under a rock since Sunday, here’s a detailed recap of the events that took place on Sunday evening, provided by our message board’s Player Dos (not to be confused with the current Young Lions Cup holder):

Colony just won, streamers are going everywhere, everyone is standing up. The people leaning on the barricade where I was fell forward as the two BDK dudes push through the audience and get in the ring. Portal and Colony all pretty much sit down on the opposite corner, and they start speaking. “We told you a war is coming, now give us what we want”, (or something along those lines), out comes Green Ant and Carpenter Ant. Out from the back trickles out everyone on the Technico side of things, and 2.0 (they get their own category). Quack and Claudio slide into the ring. BDK men say “Don’t taunt me, you know who we want.” They point up to Mantis and Vokoder who are up in the commentation station. They look at eachother and come down to the ring, accompanied by Delirious. Mantis starts yelling at the BDK guys, and ends in the phrase “I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO YOU ARE!”. The smaller BDK takes off his match to reveal it’s Ares. And with that, BOOM! Claudio nails Quack with an Uppercut. Chaos ensues. Literally, at first a giant brawl broke out. No one had any idea what was going on, I didn’t notice anything odd until I looked up to see Carpenter Ant choking out Green Ant. Looking around, Claudio beating on people, Vokoder choking out Mantis, and Death Haze putting the beat down on people. Haze, Del Rey, Claudio, Carpenter, Vokoder, Ares, and the big BDK guy stand in the ring. In a triangle format. First, Carpenter demasks himself to reveal it’s Pinkie Sanchez, (on a side note, his hair is completely brown, and he had a sick look on his face), then Vokoder reveals himself to be Donst. They all do a salute, the bigger still masked BDK guy then pulls out a remote, and the lights go out. They alliance then fleds the arena, the lights come back on, and everyone (including Chikarason and Louden Noxious) were laid out. They get help to the back, and the show ends.

Since then, Claudio Castagnoli has posted a video message, which you can see here, which states the name of the unit and that there are eight members. Interesting, if you count up the number in the ring from Sunday…

So, as of right now, this is what we know about the Brüderschaft:

  • The name: “Brüderschaft” translates to “brotherhood” in German, so it’s clear that this is a unit that believes in solidarity and a “one for all, all for one” mentality.

  • There are eight members. Currently, we know of Ares, Claudio Castagnoli, Pinkie Sanchez, Tim Donst, Sara del Rey, Daizee Haze and a seventh unnamed member. The eighth member of the unit has yet to be revealed.

  • They currently have the Eye of Tyr. UltraMantis Black handed the Eye to Vökoder before he entered the ring to confront the BDK members, and as we know, Vökoder revealed himself to be a member of the Brüderschaft in Tim Donst.

If nothing else, this has proven to be an amazing twist in the history of CHIKARA. What season nine will hold in 2010 is something that we can’t even predict. It’ll be fascinating to see exactly how this all unfolds. Who will the Brüderschaft target first? Will the tecnicos and rudos of CHIKARA align to stop this massive threat? Where does the Order of the Neo-Solar Temple go from here? While a number of questions were answered on Sunday, a whole lot more were asked.

CHIKARA returns on January 31st to The Arena in South Philadelphia. Is this where the war begins?

Today’s the big day – the final event of CHIKARA’s epic eighth season is upon us, “Three-Fisted Tales” in Philadelphia. In what’s sure to be one of the most memorable cards in quite some time, we finally see the conclusion to the 2009 trilogy of Campeonatos de Parejas matches as Fire Ant and Soldier Ant, Colony representatives and current Campeones, defend their belts against the men they defeated for the titles, The Osirian Portal of Ophidian and Amasis. We’ll also see the conclusion to the big Eddie Kingston vs. Claudio Castagnoli feud today as they square off in a Respect Match. Surely there are going to be some surprises today – will the BDK crew make their impact felt today, as they have in recent months in Philadelphia? Will we finally learn more about their mission and exactly who the heck they are?

Preshow Notes: Very tired today, so excuse me if the details are a bit lacking. Strong crowd, very lively. Attendance estimate is around 280. Both Jigsaw and Akuma are out after not being cleared by doctors.

1. Green Ant, Carpenter Ant [The Colony], Dasher Hatfield & Sugar Dunkerton [The Throwbacks] vs. Vin Gerard, Colin Delaney, STIGMA [The UnStable] & Brodie Lee: Carpenter Ant still the odd man out with no Colony cape. Sugar D takes down Brodie early and goes for a slam dunk, but Brodie swats him down with a block. Carpenter Ant and STIGMA now, and Carp broke Stigma’s nose again. Bleeding quite a bit here. Gerard and Green Ant now, Gerard and Colin attempt some heelery but Green is on top of things today. Game 2 of the Rudos vs. Tecnicos baseball series is teased, but Brodie’s not having any of the shenanigans. Brodie with a RIDICULOUS running chop on Dasher. All eight men run rampant until Brodie kills Green Ant with the big boot in 11:14. Okay match. Heels spend extra time celebrating their win.

2. Helios vs. Yujiro Kushida: Very similar to last night with a lot of early ground work, but Helios had a lot of Kushida’s tactics scouted with some of unique reversals. Some really cool stuff in this match but just not as good as Kushida’s match with Dos last night. Helios wins with the 630 in 10:46..

3. Tim Donst vs. Player Uno: Very glad to see Uno here on finale weekend! Crowd is heavily behind him, and he’s laying it in early with some heavy chops. Donst is a heavy rudo, resorting to every trick in the book. Donst goes for a Hydralock but Uno turns it into a stunner for two. Uno’s offense tonight is on point, he looks really good doing all sorts of innovative stuff. Uno taps out Donst in 6:17.

4. Hallowicked & Frightmare [Incoherence] vs. UltraMantis Black & Delirious [The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple]: Notable that Crossbones is here on the outside, keeping a keen eye on the front door of the Arena for any BDK business. Really fun and fast paced match so far, Delirious doing a majority of the work for the Order. Delirious and Wicked going buckwild on each other, Shadows Over Heck kicked out of at a one count. Yakuza kick from Wicked on Delirious that should’ve netted the win but Mantis saves him. Delirious with a sick Praying Mantis Bomb on Frightmare in 10:58 to give The Temple their third point.

Intermission. Return is January 31st in the Arena.

5. Mike Quackenbush & Jorge “Skayde” Rivera vs. Icarus & Chuck Taylor [F.I.S.T.]: Small pocket of fans booing Quack again this month. Another really fun, but standard fare tag match. Icarus working over Skayde’s knee in deadly fashion. A bit of miscommunication on F.I.S.T.’s part, but it wasn’t enough as Chuck Taylor tapped Skayde with the Cross Crab in 11:23.

6. CHIKARA Young Lions Cup ~ V3: Player Dos (c) vs. Lince Dorado: Slow start, but Lince picks it up big with an Asai 450 to the outside that looked awesome. Just a real spotty match, feels like a sequence of moves that’s nothing special. Lince goes for the shooting star senton but lands on his ass. Dos just german’d Lince off the apron onto the steps! Insanity! Player Dos hits a frog splash to retain the Cup. Lince was carried out by his stablemates, clearly an attempt to play on Lince’s accident two years ago.

8. Respect Match: Eddie Kingston vs. Claudio Castagnoli: Claudio runs right out the gates and hits a Ricola Bomb for two, only for Kingston to combat with a backfist for two. They keep the pressure going, just brutalizing one another in ridiculous fashion. Just an incredible back and forth match, brutal as all hell. Kingston with a huge tope! They’re brawling on the outside and Claudio throws a CHIKARA trainee in the way of a huge Kingston strike, providing just enough of a distraction to get in a bicycle kick and an Alpamare Waterslide on the apron. Ricola Bomb and Kingston’s out at one! German for two! Clothesline for two and the crowd is strongly behind Kingston. Claudio with a pumphandle off the top…two count! Kingston kicks out! Bicycle knee, uppercut…and Claudio gets the win in 15:53. Awesome match, strong contender for the best this year in CHIKARA. Kingston says he doesn’t respect Claudio. He pushed Claudio and tested him, and Claudio still can’t put his demon away. Says that Claudio and his former tag team partner are shady people, and that he deserves the respect of no one. Backfist and King leaves.

8. CHIKARA Campeonatos de Parejas ~ V2: Fire Ant & Soldier Ant [The Colony] (c) vs. Ophidian & Amasis [The Osirian Portal];

Primera Caida: Icarus and Akuma are sitting in the entraceway watching closely for who they have to face next. Vokoder is standing in the rafters behind Mantis on commentary, both of them keeping a keen eye on the action. Crowd is split dead even with the two teams. Solid stuff, the guys are going at it strong. Amasis gets the first fall over Fire Ant to put the Portal up 1-0 in 8:23.

Segunda Caida: Ophidian getting the heat on Fire Ant. Fire makes the tag to Soldier…not soon after, Soldier taps Ophidian with the CHIKARA Special in 13:09 to tie it up.

Tercera Caida: Huge sequence of dives to start the fall. Back and forth action, Ophidian and Soldier Ant with some CRAZY slams. Fire Ant goes for the same armbar that they won the belts with, Ophidian attempts to turn it into a pin but gets two counts twice, second one breaking the hold. Colony with twin double stomps for two counts. Super Beach Break attempt shoved off as Ophidian kicks him. Sacrament attempt, Fire Ant rolls out! TKO on Ophidian for two. Death Grip into a suplex, Sacrament attempt on Soldier is good! Two count, kickout! Another Sacrament attempt but the Colony fight out…Super Beach Break and Super TKO for the Colony to retain in 23:15!

BDK is here and they have the mic. Shorter one says a war is coming and he’s tired of waiting. Tecnicos come out, Quack and Claudio stand face to face. “Dont insult me, send me the man with the real power!”, pointing at Mantis and Vokoder. They come out…Mantis says he’s sick of them and the threats. He doesn’t even know who they are…it’s Ares! Ares is BDK and Claudio turned on heel! Carpenter Ant, Sara and Daizee all turned as well…Carpenter takes off his hood and reveals himself to be Pinkie Sanchez! Vokoder is Donst! They all do a formation, the lights go out and a Sabu chant starts. All of the faces are laid out around the ring.

A great night, but a sad night in Easton as the first half of the 2009 season finale is in the books. Tonight, we said goodbye to Hydra, who was unfairly defeated by Tim Donst in the Loser Leaves CHIKARA match, one of the most heated battles in recent CHIKARA history. The fans were strongly behind Hydra, but sadly it wasn’t enough. In a happier note, Jigsaw finally got his revenge on Gran Akuma in an incredibly hard fought main event, proving himself to be the better man in one on one competition.

2. Chad Badd & Brad Badd [The Badd Boys] (5:00 ~ Decapitation) Lince Dorado & Helios {L} [The Future is Now]
3. Amasis (4:27 ~ DQ: Excesivo Castigo) Carpenter Ant
4. Player Dos (11:54 ~ Frog Splash) Yujiro Kushida
5. UltraMantis Black {W}, Delirious & Crossbones [The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple] (13:20 ~ Backslide) Claudio Castagnoli, Mike Quackenbush {L} & Jorge “Skayde” Rivera
6. Dasher Hatfield {W} & Sugar Dunkerton [The Throwbacks] (10:09 ~ Schoolboy) Icarus {L} & Chuck Taylor [F.I.S.T.]

8. Fire Ant, Soldier Ant {W} & Green Ant (15:00 ~ Inverted TKO) Vin Gerard, STIGMA & Colin Delaney {L}

It’s been no secret – the biggest feud in CHIKARA in 2009 has been The Colony vs. the Osirian Portal. Two epic title matches, a change of hands in the Campeonatos de Parejas, countless other encounters with each other. However, the newer, younger members of The Colony have yet to get involved with the feud. That all changes in Easton at “Throwing Life’s Instructions Away”, as Carpenter Ant gets his chance to do battle with Amasis. Carpenter has been arguably the biggest surprise of 2009, coming out of nowhere to win the Cibernetico last month in only his fourth match in CHIKARA by tapping out his partner Soldier Ant with the Inverted CHIKARA Special, a move never seen before. Will Carpenter be able to keep the ball rolling and put away a former Campeon in the process?
