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.

We apologize once again for being incredibly late with this update; things have been going on behind the scenes with this site, so that’s sort of taken priority. However, we’re back today to play catch-up once again. Let’s dive right in!

“An Optimistic View of a Pessimistic World” ~ October 17, 2009 in Easton, PA

The four-way elimination tag we talked up last week has been filled out with two more teams looking to build up points for title contention. Dasher Hatfield and his new partner Sugar Dunkerton are going to get a prime opportunity to get a feel for one another on a huge stage, as they could launch from zero to three points in the first time they’ve teamed together. While the likelihood of this is slim, stranger things have happened in CHIKARA. Meanwhile, the fourth team represents F.I.S.T. – while the group already has three points, Gran Akuma being sidelined indefinitely has led to Icarus and Chuck Taylor putting their names out there for contention. This is the same duo that lost the titles for F.I.S.T. the last time Gran Akuma was out for an extended injury, so while they’ve been successful in the past, they’ve been known to blow it on the big stage. Let’s see how they do in Easton!

It’s incredibly rare that we get three title matches on any one card in wrestling (well, aside from the WWE, but having a hundred belts diminishes the significance of such an event), but Easton is going to get that honor in October as Mike Quackenbush defends his NWA World Junior Heavyweight Championship against Sal Rinauro. Rinauro was incredibly cocky in making the claim in Nashua for Smart Mark’s cameras that he was going to come to CHIKARA, take Quackenbush’s title and run CHIKARA his way. Quack never backs down from a challenge, and as such, we’ve got this matchup!

“Cibernetico Incredible” ~ October 18, 2009 in Philadelphia, PA

The batting order for this year’s Torneo Cibernetico has been determined by team captains Fire Ant and Soldier Ant, and the opening go around the rotation sees some interesting matchups. Starting off the match will be Fire and Mike Quackenbush, who have not been opposite each other in the ring since May of 2007 when Quack put Fire Ant away in a trios matchup with a top rope Tiger Driver. After that will be Hallowicked and Jigsaw, a storied competitive rivalry between two of the top students that dates back many years. There’s also a chance that an early tag out will also see a very early matchup between both members of the Super Smash Bros. and the Young Bucks, and another chance of a matchup like that later on in the first rotation with Green Ant and Soldier Ant, then again with Soldier and Fire. Not to pull a Gabe Sapolsky here, but this match needs no hype – 16 of the best wrestlers in CHIKARA squaring off to be “el Rey de Torneo Cibernetico!”

Sal Rinauro has another big challenge ahead of him in October, as he’s facing both trainers of the CHIKARA Wrestle Factory – in Philadelphia, he goes one on one with Claudio Castagnoli. There’s a chance that this could be an NWA World Junior title match if Rinauro gets the upset over Quack the night before. Could we potentially see two title changes in one weekend?

“Three-Fisted Tales” ~ November 22, 2009 in Philadelphia, PA

Another match that needs no hype – the Respect Match between Claudio Castagnoli and Eddie Kingston. The goal of the match is simple: beat your opponent until he tells the world that he respects you. Kingston wrote a very powerful blog claiming why he wanted this match, which essentially provides as a backstory to this match better than we could write in this space. Check it out!

We’ll be back more often with these updates. Promise!

Yesterday, CHIKARA announced that a huge four-way elimination tag was hitting Easton. The benefit to these matches? The winners, if they gather up all the pinfalls, can shoot themselves from zero points on the board straight to a title shot. Right now, no team would love that more than The Osirian Portal. After losing their titles in Nashua in two straight falls, Ophidian and Amasis are certainly looking to get the Campeonatos de Parejas back in their grasp. Fans will likely be looking forward to this as the second encounter between the Portal and the Young Bucks; currently, the Egyptian duo has a leg-up on the Jackson brothers after getting a first round win over them in this year’s King of Trios tournament, though the fall was over the Young Bucks’ teammate El Generico.

A number of teams are reaching out to get a shot at The Colony and their Campeonatos de Parejas, and a recent staple that’s seen its presence felt in the past year hits CHIKARA yet again in Easton on October 17th – the four-way elimination tag match! Even crazier? The first competitors are an outside squad that are looking to make their first mark on the quest to three points – Matt and Nick Jackson, The Young Bucks. More often than not the winners of these matches have gone on to get title shots, with The Colony winning the first one to earn some of their infamous seven points late last year, and most recently Gran Akuma and Icarus locking in their third point for an upcoming title match. Will the Young Bucks see similar success, or will one of the teams added in the coming days be the duo to get a trio of points?

The other day, we made a promise that we’d get everyone caught up on the recent non-Cibernetico related evolutions on October’s cards in Easton and Philadelphia. Have we ever let you down? Don’t mention the failed launch of that new redesign (we’re still coming out with that, by the way, just you wait!), and let’s just go with the popular answer of “never, you love us!” Onward with the matches:

“An Optimistic View of a Pessimistic World” ~ October 17, 2009 in Easton, PA


While we have what’s likely our main event in the form of the Campeonatos de Parejas defense of The Colony vs. The Roughnecks, the rest of this card has unfolded in quite unique fashion. The most notable additions have seen the Super Smash Bros. competing in singles action, both with quite hefty challenges ahead of them. Young Lions Cup champion Player Dos is going to be defending his title against Incoherence’s crazed mini-demon Frightmare, who has been on quite the tear in singles competition this year. He’ll be looking to prove that his first round bounce in the YLC tournament back in August was a fluke; he already avenged his loss to Brendan Michael Thomas, and taking the cup away from the winner of said tournament would only solidify how much of a fluke that was. Meanwhile, Player Uno has been attempting to prove that he’s not playing games anymore, and has targeted the cream of the crop in CHIKARA, Claudio Castagnoli, to prove that he’s serious. This is arguably Uno’s biggest singles bout to date in CHIKARA, and while he’s had some big singles wins over top Wrestle Factory talent in the past, nothing’s been quite as big as the co-head trainer.

Also on this show, we’re going to see a singles match that’s nearly two years in the making. Jigsaw was set to take on Gran Akuma in Easton in October, a continuation of their rivalry that’s brewed to a head in 2009. However, Akuma’s injury that kept him off of the September shows was re-aggravated while on the comeback trail. When word hit the CHIKARA locker room, a certain rudo that Jigsaw has a lot of past with stepped up to the plate – STIGMA. These two have a long history with one another, dating back to their days as the much beloved ShaneSaw team. They had their problems with one another in late 2007, and since that time, Jigsaw left and returned while the former Shane Storm turned his back on the fans and joined Vin Gerard’s UnStable. These two have a lot of unsettled beef with one another, and it’s long overdue that they step in the ring to do battle one on one.

The hunt for three points never quite ends, and while it’s been some time since UltraMantis Black and Crossbones have made an attempt to add on to the one point that they gained in Japan back in June against Shadow WX and Yuichi Taniguchi, the original Order of the Neo-Solar Temple are back on the ball and looking to shoot to the top. Their opponents on October 17th, the newest Colony duo of Green Ant and Carpenter Ant. Will the new hormigas be able to get the ball rolling towards a title shot against their fellow Colony members, or are Mantis and Bones going to establish dominance while Delirious is off in Japan?

“Cibernetico Incredible” ~ October 18, 2009 in Philadelphia, PA

Many expected this to be one of the big title matches coming up towards the end of the year, and while this may have a set of champions involved if Brodie Lee and Grizzly Redwood can snatch the belts from The Colony the night prior, this match between two rudo duos will not be for the Campeonatos de Parejas. No matter what the results of the defense is in Easton, The Osirian Portal are looking to get the ball rolling towards getting the gold back after dropping the belts in Nashua last month, and there’d be no better way to start that off than to get their first point against the Roughnecks.

Two more duos are also looking to grab up some valuable points this weekend, and they’re both quite new to the CHIKARA scene. The Badd Boys have have been flirting with the company for a while – unexpectedly showing up on one of the Big Japan dojo events hosted while CHIKARA was overseas in June – and finally made their debut in West Springfield last month when they put away Fire Ant and Green Ant. This time, the challenge is a bit different; the red hot Dasher Hatfield has been knocking wins out of the park since his debut. His search for a partner ended when a young man by the name of Sugar Dunkerton put his name out there to help Dasher on his quest for three points. It’ll be interesting to see what Dunkerton brings to the table in Philly, as this will be his CHIKARA debut.

One small change to a previously announced match – Atsuko Emoto has been pulled from the ladies’ tag in Philly and replaced with Bullfight Sora, a Big Japan women’s wrestler who has incredible similarities to Emoto. Not much to say, really.

Oh, hey! Did you notice things look a little different around here? Hope you like it, because trust us, it was a lot of work. Enough about us, let’s talk CHIKARA…

The sixth annual Torneo Cibernetico is beginning to unfold, and the “incredibles” theme has already made things quite interesting. Only two members have been announced for each squad, but the teams see two of CHIKARA’s top tecnico squads up against one another – Campeon de Parejas Soldier Ant captains a team with “Lightning” Mike Quackenbush, while Fire Ant is the head of a team that sees him alongside Jigsaw. With six more teams set to be split amongst the two squads, it’s going to be quite interesting to see how things unfold.

Meanwhile, the night prior in Easton will see the return of Brad and Chad Baddthe Badd Boys – who made a powerful debut in West Springfield a few weeks back in manhandling Green Ant and Fire Ant. At “An Optimistic View of a Pessimistic World”, they see a slightly bigger challenge as The Future is Now representatives Helios and Lince Dorado step up to the Badd Challenge. Points are in play here; who’s gonna walk out one step closer to a shot at The Colony? Find out on October 17th!

Our good buddy Richard Parker is running another bus trip – two, in fact! Check here for info on the trip from New York City to Philly for October’s “Cibernetico Incredible”, and how to land a sweet discount if you choose to take the trip to both the Cibernetico and November’s Dragon Gate USA event. A fun time for all CHIKARA fans; if you’re in the NYC metro area, definitely check out this steal of an offer.

In a blog that may have some foreshadowing towards the upcoming Cibernetico, Player Uno speaks out and sends a message to his teammate, reminding him that Uno is the one that made him who he is.

The 180th episode of CHIKARA’s Podcast-a-Go-Go sees clips from this year’s Rey de Voladores tournament that took place over King of Trios weekend in March. Check out both first round matches!

Well! We take a couple of days off after the exhausting New England weekend, and the CHIKARA offices don’t cut us any slack. This update alone will hype up two new matches, a blog, a new Podcast and some more little nuggets of info. Let’s not waste time; here come the updates!

First off – new champs! The Colony have won the Campeonatos de Parejas in Nashua on Sunday, defeating the Osirian Portal in two straight falls. Wasting no time, their first defense has been signed and it’s the main event of Easton’s “An Optimistic View of a Pessimistic World” as Fire Ant and Soldier Ant square off against the only currently healthy duo with three points, The Roughnecks of Brodie Lee and Grizzly Redwood. While the Roughnecks have likely been preparing for three falls with the Portal, the ants are looking to prove that they’re not going to be one-and-done like the last tecnico team to hold the belts, the Super Smash Bros. Rumor is that, by the time you read this, the Roughnecks will have some words for the Colony in a Podcast Special Update. We’ll have that video for you here tomorrow!

While Brodie and the Grizz are going to be prepping for three falls of action in Easton, their fellow Roughneck Eddie Kingston is getting himself ready for the following night, where he’ll be taking on Big Japan’s newest rookie sensation Ryuichi Kawakami! Making his debut in December of 2008, Kawakami, a trainee of current Big Japan tag champ (and CHIKARA alum) Daisuke Sekimoto, brings a lot to the table despite being relatively new to the ring. A hype video displaying his sheer power and strength is right on the other side of this link – check it out now.

Sara del Rey has written a very interesting blog here, voicing her recent frustrations with the competition she’s been given recently. Daizee Haze recently voiced similar complaints, so perhaps something is in store for these two down the road.

The latest edition of the Podcast-a-Go-Go, featuring King of Trios 2009 action such as the Soul Touchaz vs. the UnStable and the F1RST Family vs. F.I.S.T., can be seen here

See you tomorrow with more on the latest in CHIKARA!

In CHIKARA, tradition is normally that the big grudge matches are held off for the end of the season. However, this year has been full of surprises, and the latest one is something the fans have been begging to see for quite a while as a month earlier than some may have expected – Jigsaw and Gran Akuma are set to do battle in singles action in Easton. The two men have had sort of a competitive rivalry that’s gotten a bit personal in recent months, dating back to April’s “The Bobliographon” event, where Akuma pinned Jig with a Rubik’s Cube in a big atomico main event. It happened again a month later in Easton at the end of a trios match between F.I.S.T. and Jigsaw/Lince Dorado/Helios, this time with the Yoshi Tonic.

From there, things took a turn for the personal. The two saw each other across the ring a few months later at Dragon Gate USA’s “Open the Historic Gate” show; Jig ended up getting the win this time over Akuma’s teammate Icarus. However, after the match, Akuma took his frustrations out on a downed Mike Quackenbush, who was receiving a beating from Dragon Gate’s YAMATO after Quack laid out a challenge to the DG locker room. Six days later, Icarus and Akuma squared off with Quack and Jigsaw at “Never Kneel at the Altar of Conformity” in Reading; F.I.S.T. reigned supreme that night in one of the best and most heated matches on the show. Most recently, at this past weekend’s “Open the Untouchable Gate” DGUSA event, Jigsaw and Akuma saw themselves once again across the ring from one another in tag action, with Quackenbush on Jig’s side and YAMATO on Akuma’s. While the tecnicos got the win after YAMATO accidentally speared Akuma, leaving him open for Quackenbush, it was Jigsaw who was laid out earlier in the match as the evil duo took out his knee.

Needless to say, this singles confrontation coming up at “An Optimistic View of a Pessimistic World” has a lot on the line. What was once a competitive rivalry between two men has become a battle of personal pride between two warriors. A victory in singles competition for either man holds a lot of value in this war between the two, and if Akuma has his way, he might just aim for more than a victory; he may very well try to put Jigsaw on the sidelines for good.

Speaking of wars, Crossbones has spoken out on his feelings on the apparent war that is coming for Ultramantis Black. He posted a blog today on the CHIKARAPro.com site, which you can read here.
