…now, for the moment you’ve all been waiting for, the 2009 CHIKARA Fans Awards!

After months of debate, nomination, voting, etc., we’ve finally reached the big day. The 2009 CHIKARA Fans Awards voting has completed, and we have the winners below. Enjoy!

MATCH OF THE YEAR: Kota Ibushi vs. Nick Jackson vs. El Generico vs. Jigsaw, “King of Trios 2009: Night Two” – 36%
Second Place: Chuck Taylor & Icarus [F.I.S.T.] vs. Fire Ant & Soldier Ant [The Colony] (Lucha de Apuestas), “Aniversario Yang” – 32%
Third Place: Mike Quackenbush & Jigsaw vs. Claudio Castagnoli & Bryan Danielson, “Hiding in Plain Sight” – 15%

Rey de Voladores has always been a tournament that provided for some spectacular matches in the opening rounds. Four way flyer exhibitions have their ways of mystifying the crowds. But when the CHIKARA office made the call to move the tournament to King of Trios weekend to take advantage of the sheer talent that would be available after the first round of the Trios tournament ended, no one could’ve seen a match like this coming. Four of the best junior heavyweights in the world today squared off and lit the ECW Arena on fire, not only giving every single person in the match a bit more exposure, but setting the standard that every CHIKARA multi-man match had to live up to for the rest of the year.
2008 Winner: Fire Ant vs Vin Gerard, “Young Lions Cup VI: Night Three”
2007 Winner: Chris Hero vs Mike Quackenbush, “Aniversario?”

SHOW OF THE YEAR: “King of Trios 2009: Night Two” – 39%
Second Place: “Aniversario Yang” – 24%
Third Place: “Hiding in Plain Sight” – 18%

For the second year in a row, the show with the Match of the Year also wins Show of the Year. You’d be hard pressed to find a better show in CHIKARA’s history than the second night of this year’s King of Trios tournament. The Rey de Voladores four-way matches. The epic rematch between F.I.S.T. and The F1RST Family. An awesome Inter Species Wrestling title match that saw the return of Twiggy to CHIKARA rings. Oh, and some match with some guys that did uppercuts against a trio of dudes that know a few holds. You might’ve heard of it.
2008 Winner: “Young Lions Cup VI: Night Three”
2007 Winner: “Cibernetico and Robin”

WRESTLER OF THE YEAR: Player Dos – 31%, 85 votes
Second Place: Claudio Castagnoli – 31%, 84 votes
Third Place: Fire Ant – 19%

In one of the closest races in CHIKARA Fans awards history, coming down to literally a single vote, current Young Lions Cup champion Player Dos is the 2009 CHIKARA Fans Wrestler of the Year. A man that excelled in singles competition this year, Dos really broke out and became his own man. Despite the tiff with his partner Player Uno, it seems that the Super Smash Bros. have quite the power in their possession, and perhaps 2010 will see the first ever repeat Campeones de Parejas and simultaneous CdP/YLC champion.
2008 Winner: Vin Gerard
2007 Winner: Claudio Castagnoli

TAG TEAM OF THE YEAR: Fire Ant and Soldier Ant [The Colony]
Second Place: Ophidian & Amasis [The Osirian Portal] – 24%
Third Place: UltraMantis Black & Delirious [The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple] – 11%

This year was undoubtedly the Year of the Ant. Overcoming incredible adversity – losing a comrade in Worker Ant, being misled by both Pinkie “Carpenter ‘Pink’ Ant” Sanchez and a Big Japan trainee, facing the challenges that both F.I.S.T. and the Osirian Portal gave – The Colony had their strongest year yet, running through the ranks of the CHIKARA tag division to win the Campeonatos de Parejas. No one else could’ve deserved this award, and we’re glad it went to the right team.
2008 Winners: Ophidian and Amasis [The Osirian Portal]
2007 Winners: Cheech and Cloudy

TRIO OF THE YEAR: Icarus, Gran Akuma & Chuck Taylor [F.I.S.T.] – 70%
Second Place: UltraMantis Black, Crossbones & Delirious [The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple] – 12%
Third Place: Fire Ant, Soldier Ant & Worker/Green Ant [The Colony] – 11%

Likewise, no trio deserved to win this award more than F.I.S.T. While they had their drawbacks in straight tag team action, with Chuck Taylor and Icarus losing their hair to the Colony, no other team competed better in Trios action than F.I.S.T. It’s fitting that the team that won King of Trios, making current WWE prospect Bryan Danielson tap out in the process, wins this award. Congrats to the friends in similar tights!
2008 and 2007 Winners: Fire Ant, Soldier Ant & Worker Ant [The Colony]

MOMENT OF THE YEAR: Das Brüderschaft Form, “Three-Fisted Tales” – 61%
Second Place: F.I.S.T. Wins KOT as Danielson Taps, “King of Trios 2009: Night Three” – 14%
Third Place:Hydra Says Goodbye, “Throwing Life’s Instructions Away” – 13%

The final moment of the year was certainly the biggest, as it was the climax to a whole year of speculation. Who were these men in white? What is this “war” that they’ve promised is coming? What is their reason for invading CHIKARA? What’s up with all of the weird events in CHIKARA with characters from “the future”? All the questions were answered, and newer ones were created, in just the blink of an eye, setting up what’s sure to be the focus of 2010.
2008 Winner: Fire Ant Wins the YLC, “Young Lions Cup VI: Night Three”
2007 Winner: Mike Quackenbush finally defeats Chris Hero, “Aniversario?”

PROMO OF THE YEAR: “I don’t respect you!” – Eddie Kingston, “Three-Fisted Tales” – 29%
Second Place: “I’m the luckiest man on the face of this earth.” – Hydra, “Throwing Life’s Instructions Away” – 27%
Third Place: “…” – 2.0, “Aniversario Yin” – 23%

It wasn’t a very notable year for promos in CHIKARA, despite it being arguably the best year when it comes to sheer storytelling. However, if you’re going to depend on anyone to cut a scathing promo that just about anyone can be riled up by, it’s Eddie Kingston. He delivered in a huge way at the end of the year, providing incredible foreshadowing into the moment of the year, and proved that he was the one that was right about everything in CHIKARA all along…that Claudio Castagnoli didn’t deserve the respect he got.
2008 Winner: “The world is cold…bundle up.” by Eddie Kingston, “Tragedy and Triumph”
2007 Winner: Eddie Kingston, “Maximum Overdraft”

“OUCH!” OF THE YEAR: Player Dos German Suplexes Lince Into the Steps, “Three-Fisted Tales” – 32%
Second Place: Chuck Taylor Retires Worker Ant, “If The Airplane is Snowed In…” – 25%
Third Place: Chuck Taylor’s Omega Driver Through a Table on Soldier Ant, “Aniversario Yang” – 20%

No words can describe it. Just read the description, man. Come on. You wanna take that bump? Didn’t think so.
2008 Winner: Shane Storm’s Nose Broken…Again, “Two Eyebrows are Better Than One”

It’s no secret that CHIKARA keeps getting bigger and bigger. 2005, it was shows in the ECW Arena. 2006, the addition of the Campeonatos de Parejas. 2007, running outside of Pennsylvania for the first time and the beginning of the CHIKARA Podcast-a-Go-Go. 2008, stepping off of the east coast states for the first time for the Midwest tour, along with the biggest tournament in wrestling history. 2009 saw attendance records broken, shows in Japan, and incredible growth both in the company and reaching outwards in alliances with Big Japan and Dragon Gate USA.

What does 2010 hold in store? If there’s one thing we know, it’s a schedule that sees nearly national expansion. When we last talked the schedule, it was mostly expansion to familiar areas – a new venue in Reading, a show in March right outside Philadelphia over the Whitman in Jersey, the long-awaited return to Schuylkill County, et cetera. Since then, it’s busted open huge, and with almost half of 2010’s schedule announced, the plans are quite interesting. Traditionally, after King of Trios comes Aniversario, and this year’s mimics 2008’s shows as they’re not going to take place inside of the confines of Pennsylvania. “Aniversario Zehn” sees CHIKARA make its return to Massachusetts and the Nashua area for the first time since this past September’s shows on May 22nd. The next day will see CHIKARA make its debut in North Jersey, a quick shuttle ride from New York City, as the ACE Arena in Union City, NJ presents “Aniversario Elf”. The month after that sees the CHIKARA debut in Michigan, as the city of Taylor gets the awesomely named “We Must Eat Michigan’s Brain”. It’ll be interesting to see if that gets followed up with a Sunday show as the CHIKaravan brings its way back to Pennsylvania, and if there’s an announcement of such a show, we’ll be sure to let you know!

Now for some site news. Please check out our CHIKARA Fans Wiki, a work-in-progress that you can assist with! Check out our message board for more information on it, but feel free to dive right in and check it out.
