Preshow Notes: Not much going on that’s noteworthy. Louden Noxious kicks off the Easton show in typical singing fashion, this time with a “Happy Birthday” song for CHIKARA in light of Aniversario weekend. New Podcast-a-Go-Go HD theme leads off the show; the crowd doesn’t enjoy it anywhere near as much as the old theme.

1. Jagged & Shane Matthews [2.0] vs. Hallowicked & Frightmare [Incoherence]: The quest for one point (again) stops short here in the rematch. No Brodie Lee to give 2.0 the upper hand means no victory for them as Hallowicked hits Jagged with the Rydeen Bomb for the victory. Fun opener.

2. Hydra vs. Grizzly Redwood: Hydra entering the FunPlex to the lovely tones of Lady Gaga. The Grizz rolls up Hydra with some help from the ropes to get the quick win in a lighthearted competition.

3. Eddie Kingston vs. Create-A-Wrestler: Kingston brings the pain in a big way, taking out his aggression on Create-a-Wrestler by bruising up his chest to a dark shade of purple early on. Kingston, as expected, gets the win with the spinning backfist, though CAW put up one hell of a fight and impressed the hot Easton crowd.

4. Helios & Lince Dorado [The Future Is Now] & Jigsaw vs. Chuck Taylor, Icarus & Gran Akuma [F.I.S.T.]: The biggest news of the night comes as F.I.S.T. enters the building, as it’s revealed that Icarus has added color to his tattoo and a nose piercing. Yeesh. The King of Trios champs reign supreme as Gran Akuma and Chuck Taylor pull off the “Dinner n’ Drinks” Yoshi Tonic/Sole Food on Jigsaw for the win. Great sprint with one hell of a dive by Helios.

Intermission.

5. Arik Cannon vs. Delirious: Delirious comes out accompanied by the Order of the Neo-Solar Temple, wearing black and white gear to fit in with the rest of the crew. He also didn’t spaz out at the sound of the bell…strange. Mantis has the Eye of Tyr around his neck, clearly controlling Delirious throughout most of the match. The finish is a surprise, as Delirious hits Cannon with the Praying Mantis Bomb for the win. The Order has definitely found their third member!

6. STIGMA vs. Tim Donst: The two men go to war with one another, including a DISGUSTING STO by STIGMA on the floor. Donst comes back later on with an STO of his own on the apron. A clearly brutal match all around, Donst taps out STIGMA with the CHIKARA Special. Better than what one would expect from these two.

7. Player Uno & Player Dos [Super Smash Bros.] & Fire Ant & Soldier Ant [The Colony] vs. Ophidian & Amasis [The Osirian Portal] & El Hijo del Ice Cream & Ice Cream Jr. [Los Ice Creams]: Great match early on, tons of fun spots all around. Crazy match with all eight men going all over the place doing insane stuff. Fire Ant pins one of the Ice Creams with a GI-Ant. Great match! After the match, Chuck Taylor came out wearing a Fire Ant shirt and one of the new replica Soldier Ant masks and lowblows Fire Ant while Icarus runs in and pedigrees Soldier Ant to get a leg up on tomorrow’s big mask vs. hair match.

8. Vin Gerard vs. Claudio Castagnoli: Great neck-and-neck match that really established Vin as one of the top names of the company. Gerard gets the win over Claudio with some help from STIGMA, sealing the deal with a jackknife pin. Great show, see you tomorrow for “Aniversario Yang”!

onemotime

Following Eddie Kingston’s challenge on the CHIKARA Podcast-A-Go-Go Update just a few days ago, Claudio Castagnoli has accepted and the two men will meet in one of the highlight matches on the upcoming Philadelphia card. Both men are among the top singles wrestlers in all of CHIKARA and both trained at the Chikara Wrestle Factory but this grudge apparently only really developed at King of Trios when Claudio’s Team Uppercut overcame Kingston’s Roughnecks in a match deemed to be “embarassing” by Kingston. However, the two have actually had issues for many years, dating back to the early days of the Eddie Kingston vs. Chris Hero feud in CHIKARA and CZW. Their first singles match in CHIKARA occurred in late March of 2007 in Kingston’s comeback match from a broken ankle, and Claudio came out on top of that by going after the injury and using a heel hook for the submission. More recently, they wrestled last November in Wallingford in a match again won by Castagnoli. “The King of Diamonds” has often been called “a man who wears his hear on his sleeve” and he is not a man who takes losses easily, so he will be well aware of Castagnoli’s record against him, so he’ll be out to “right that wrong” in Philly.

Meanwhile, finishing up the weekend is another singles match for Easton between “The Anarchist” Arik Cannon and Incoherence member Delirious. Both of these men really made their names at the same time, coming into some success in 2004/2005 in IWA Mid-South, where Cannon won the Heavyweight Title and Delirious won the Light-Heavyweight Title on multiple occasions. Both have also achieved a lot in CHIKARA, Cannon holding the Young Lions Cup in 2006 while Delirious held Los Campeonatos de Parejas last year with Hallowicked. Cannon is returning to CHIKARA after a massively impressive weekend at King of Trios where he dropped El Generico in singles competition, while nobody really knows where Delirious is at – quite literally – following his apparent kidnapping at the hands of the Order of the Neo-Solar Temple last month.

dgatomico1

The second participant has been added to the Dragon Gate USA atomico showcase match and it is another member of the tecnico squad. With the addition of Fire Ant to the 8-man match, his tag team partner in The Colony, Soldier Ant, has also been added. Soldier brings a lot to the table, having teamed with Fire Ant to win Tag World Grand Prix 2008 and challenge for Los Campeonatos de Parejas in January. While his singles credentials are not quite as decorated as those of his tag team partner, Soldier has challenged for the Young Lions Cup in the past as well as going toe-to-toe with the likes of Eddie Kingston, so his ability should not be doubted by anyone.

Chuck Taylor has a new blog on the CHIKARA site addressing the upcoming F.I.S.T. vs. Colony match.

claudiovin

The main event for the upcoming Easton show has been confirmed, pitting one of the co-trainers of the Chikara Wrestle Factory up against a former friend and a disowned former student of the school. Since Chris Hero was vanquished from CHIKARA at the end of 2007, Claudio Castagnoli has been teaching at the Wrestle Factory alongside Mike Quackenbush, assisting in the training of many current CHIKARA stars along the way, most recently Frightmare. However, around the same time that Hero was run out of the promotion by Claudio, Vin Gerard hit the scene having just previously lost his mask and his place in the locker room in the process. Following this loss, Vin proceeded to hit out at the Wrestle Factory, directing much criticism at both Quackenbush and “Reckless Youth” Tom Carter (and to this day Vin still uses Carter’s 2K1 Bomb), none of which can sit too well with “Double C”, who himself trained at the school when he first came to America. What is quite amusing is that Vin and Claudio actually hold one point as a team, having defeated Chris Hero and Shayne Hawke when Gerard was Equinox. Nevertheless, those days are long gone and Vin will consider a win over arguably the CHIKARA “ace” crucial to retain the singles momentum many feel he has lost since he failed to win back the Young Lions Cup in January.

tagrematch

This past month in Easton 2.0 picked up a rare tag team point, overcoming Incoherence of Frightmare and Delirious thanks to the interference of Brodie Lee, despite Shane Matthews insisting otherwise in a new CHIKARA blog. Clearly slightly miffed by this “excuse” given to Incoherence, Matthews has set down a challenge for a rematch in Easton, which has been accepted by “The Nightmare Warrior” and his tiny terror of a friend, so in Easton it will be the newly-dubbed “Big Magic” and the “Wet Bandit” Jagged going up against Incoherence once again. Will Brodie decide to stick his nose into things again, will Incoherence back up their impressive performances with a win, or will 2.0 start to mount a serious challenge for Los Campeonatos?

The CHIKARA Podcast-A-Go-Go has a new opening to mark its fourth year. Featured this week are Claudio Castagnoli vs. Mike Quackenbush and the Tag World Grand Prix final from Germany.

A news roundup from the past few days after not updated yesterday!

timstigma

Easton will play host to the grudge match between CHIKARA Sekigun and Sea Donsters member Tim Donst and UnStable member STIGMA. Donst is out for revenge after STIGMA booted him off the apron and injured his neck back in December (the match that saw Jigsaw and Mike Quackenbush formally reunite their tag team) and since then Donst has not been able to get back at the former Shane Storm. On the last show in Reading it was STIGMA pinning Donst with his signature tombstone piledriver, and all other Sea Donsters vs. UnStable battles have gone in favour of the rudos. Donst laid down the challenge in a Podcast-A-Go-Go update, but will he be able to back up his words and finally score a decisive win over his fellow Wrestle Factory graduate?

atomicoawesome_o

An Atomico comes to Philly as Jigsaw leads a foursome with The Future Is Now (Jimmy “Equinox” Olsen, Helios & Lince Dorado) as they will be going head-to-head with Incoherence (Hallowicked & Frightmare), Cheech & Cloudy. The latter four do have some history, as Cheech & Cloudy have teamed with Hallowicked & Delirious in several memorable matches, and they’ve also fought many times in the past, so they would have to be considered the slight favourites. However, Jigsaw was a member of the first King of Trios-winning team and The Future Is Now had a very strong showing in this year’s tournament, so they must not be underestimated in any multi-man matches.

Smart Mark Video has released the April events, “The Bobliographon” and “Beyond the 8 Ball”. The cover for the latter is an original photograph featuring Fire Ant whereas the former is a comic book adaptation actually suggested on the board. The original cover is from “Deadpool #32″ which can be viewed here.

In a quick Dragon Gate USA-related update, WORLD-1 member BxB Hulk and Real Hazard leader YAMATO will also be participating on the July card. CHIKARA announced on their Twitter account that a DGUSA announcement will be coming up soon, which will almost certainly be an announcement regarding the participants in the CHIKARA showcase match.

triosmatch9

A few days ago “Lightning” Mike Quackenbush announced in a blog on the CHIKARA website that he would be out of action for a period of time due to surgery on his back. In his final wish before leaving, Quack elevated his frequent sidekick from the student to the teacher and asked “The Wrestling Riddle” known as Jigsaw to act as a “mentor” figure to The Future Is Now: Jimmy “Equinox” Olsen, Lince Dorado and Helios. The third Young Lions Cup Champion has clearly accepted this challenge, as the upcoming Easton show on May 23rd will see Jig join forces with TFIN’s Dorado and Helios in a trios match. Unfortunately, their opponents will not be pushovers, as they will be up against F.I.S.T. of Gran Akuma, Icarus and Chuck Taylor, the 2009 King of Trios winners. The three will be in quite the vile zone one night prior to the big hair vs. mask match against The Colony in Philly, which could work in the favour of the tecnico trio. Will F.I.S.T.’s focus on the ants cause an upset in this match, or will CHIKARA’s most dangerous trio continue to destroy all comers en route to The Arena?

CHIKARA Podcast-A-Go-Go #160, featuring Chuck Taylor & Icarus vs. Martin Stone & PAC and Johnny Saint vs. Mike Quackenbush.

Shingo Takagi and Susumu Yokosuka will be wrestling on the DGUSA debut show.

The latest match for Easton’s “Aniversario Yin” has been confirmed, and it’s quite the special atomico – in their last match before their huge mask vs. hair match, Fire Ant and Soldier Ant align with former Campeones de Parejas The Super Smash Bros. to square off against The Osirian Portal and returning beloved rudos Los Ice Creams. There’s a ton of history here between these squads: the Osirian Portal were the team that snuck the belts away from the Super Smash Bros. last October at second night of “The Global Gauntlet”; the Colony were the team that came inches away from taking those belts for themselves back at “Revelation X” in January. Also notable is Player Dos’ recent success in last month’s Atomico match, defeating Buck Hawke at “Behind the 8 Ball”. Will he fly high and take home the win for the tecnicos? Find out on May 23rd when Aniversario Weekend 2009 takes off!

Also, last second addition – are you in the NYC metro area and interested in attending “Aniversario Yin”? Hit up Richard Parker, the head of the CHIKARA Fans Bus Trips, for info on the bus trip to this event and the DGUSA event on 7/25 in Philly! All info can be found here.

CAW vs. Eddie Kingston

It’s been a week since an update, and we’re back at last! Hey, we only report the news, we don’t make it. The first match has been added to the Aniversario weekend, and it’s rather appropriate considering this will mark the 7th anniversary of the first ever CHIKARA show as it will pit one of CHIKARA’s early stars against one of the newer characters. Back in late 2002 when CHIKARA moved to St. John’s Auditorium, Eddie Kingston debuted alongside BlackJack Marciano as the Wildcards. Now, in 2009, “The King of Diamonds” is stronger, tougher, colder and much more dangerous. His opponent debuted at the 2007 King of Trios tournament, losing to Chuck Taylor. Create-A-Wrestler has gone through two fan-created gimmicks in additional to his CAW persona but has never really stepped up to the plate and risen up the card. This will be his chance, as he’ll be well aware of what a strong performance against a man like the King will do for a career (ask Tim Donst). However, Kingston will not be so happy with that. In the past he has stated he wants to “burst the bubbles” of the new CHIKARA wrestlers, such as Soldier Ant, Lince Dorado and the aforementioned Donst. Will CAW be the next man on that list, or will he pull off the biggest win of his career thus far?

Shill! The Young Lions Cup Champion Jimmy “Equinox” Olsen was on the Dr. Keith show this week, talking masks, Colin and all sorts of other good stuff!
