Just a few days ago, UltraMantis Black wrote a blog where he mentioned that him and his cronies in the Order of the Neo-Solar Temple were all set to face top competition come January’s “A Touch of Class”, and that’s what was going to prevent them from squaring off with any Brüderschaft der Kreuzes members. This was promised to be some of the stiffest competition that the Temple had ever seen, a match that was going to truly test their limits and put them in prime condition for King of Trios, whether they walked out on top or were humbled in defeat.

When we fired up the ol’ CHIKARA Fans computers today and saw the match…needless to say, we were a bit underwhelmed by the promise that Mantis had made. The return of Pelle Primeau for the first time since Young Lions Cup VI and the concussions that put him out of wrestling soon after? Surely something to be excited about. The return of Grizzly Redwood after Brodie Lee’s big boot took him out last October? Fun times. The debut of “Right Leg” Andy Ridge, who is supposed to be one of the ROH Academy’s top students in recent years? Cool! But to say this trio is one of the strongest teams that the independent scene could muster up to face the Neo-Solar Temple? A ridiculous claim. It’s clear to us that UltraMantis Black is running scared from the Brüderschaft, and it’s only a matter of time until they catch up to him.

The newest match to the final card of the CHIKARA season has been announced, and it’s one heck of an Atomico match that should be lots of fun. The ThrowbacksDasher Hatfield and Sugar Dunkerton – team up with Colony representatives Green Ant and Carpenter Ant. Their opponents? The UnStable and Brodie Lee. The Big Rig is back on the highway of destruction after eliminating Grizzly Redwood from the CHIKARA roster with one swift boot to the face. Everyone in this match has something to prove to move up the ranks in 2010. We’ll see who walks out on top in 12 days.

It was also announced by CHIKARA that there will be one mystery match unannounced for both season finale cards. Who will be in those matches? Find out first here when we do our live results!

Two huge matches were announced in the past 24 hours that are huge ways to wrap up the conclusion to Season Eight of CHIKARA action. First up in Easton, Mike Quackenbush, Claudio Castagnoli and Jorge “Skayde” Rivera – the trio of CHIKARA maestros that have had hands in the training of every CHIKARA Wrestle Factory alum – are going to take on The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple’s UltraMantis Black, Crossbones and Delirious. The Temple were given this match as punishment for the huge headache that they’ve caused Leonard F. Chikarason all year, and this form of payback may be the most painful for the rudos as they’re encountering a true dream team. If they’re to pull off the huge upset victory, it would be an achievement the likes of which have never been predicted in CHIKARA in the past.

The next day in Philadelphia at “Three-Fisted Tales”, it’s a title match that co-main-evented the first event of the 2009 CHIKARA calendar year: The Colony, on the champion side this time, defend the Campeonatos de Parejas against The Osirian Portal. This is the third title match between these two this season, and the first two were memorable encounters that saw both teams take each other to the limit. It’ll be no different this time around; will the Portal regain the gold that was taken from them in Nashua back in September, or can the Colony take two of three in both the match and the series?

Also noteworthy: Sara del Rey has written a blog here, clearly outlining her frustrations with the current women’s division in CHIKARA. 2009 was supposed to be a year where she was promised the top female talent from around the world, but she steamrolled over everyone CHIKARA threw her way and has laid out an open challenge for season finale weekend. Who’s going to step up and accept? We’ll find out soon, hopefully.

Yes indeed. Three more matches on the cards for the upcoming shows in just a couple of weeks!

SuperTemple

The first match added to the New England weekend will take place on the West Springfield show and sees the new Young Lions Cup Champion Player Dos return to tag team competition alongside Player Uno as the Super Smash Bros., as they will be taking on Order of the Neo-Solar Temple members Delirious and UltraMantis Black. With many seeing the SSB as being on a collision course, the Order will be intending to rebound after falling in the 4-way elimination tag at the Young Lions Cup and taking advantage of any animousity or jealousy between Uno and Dos would have to be a primary objective. However, Uno and Dos cannot be counted out as they are former Campeones and have shown in the past that they can overcome any issues to succeed as a duo.

TenManTag

Secondly, Nashua will play host to a tremendously wrestle-tastic ten-man tag featuring a number of men who’ve never even teamed before, and a couple who CHIKARA fans are just getting familiar with, as The Future Is Now members Jimmy “Equinox” Olsen and Lince Dorado will be joining forces with Dasher Hatfield, Green Ant and Carpenter Ant against Vin Gerard, STIGMA, Colin Delaney, Jagged & Shane Matthews. While Jimmy and Lince are well-versed in CHIKARA’s signature multi-man tags, having wrestled numerous trios, atomicos and even Ciberneticos in their time, their team-mates are not so experienced. This will mark Green Ant’s third match in CHIKARA and Carpenter Ant’s second, and Carpenter’s in-ring debut was a singles match. Dasher Hatfield is not much more experienced, as most of his CHIKARA matches have been singles bouts and any forays into team matches haven’t yielded much success. On the other hand, their opponents are made up of two factions – 2.0 and the UnStable – and both are extremely experienced in this sort of match. It should also be noted that Green Ant and Carpenter Ant don’t appear to have been getting on well as of late, so they can hardly be considered a cohesive Colony unit. It’ll be the leadership of Lince and Jimmy that decides whether the tecnicos sink or swim in what should be quite the exciting little match.

SolarNecks

Finally, the Order will also have a tag match in Nashua, as Delirious and Mantis will once again be looking to pick up a win, this time against Roughnecks members Eddie Kingston and Grizzly Redwood. This match is quite interesting for a number of reasons. Firstly, Grizzly Redwood is currently one half of a championship contending tag team, as Grizz and Brodie Lee await the surviving Campeones coming out of the New England weekend, and while Brodie has often treated Grizz like a “little brother”, Kingston has shown little tolerance for Redwood’s physical inadequacies, often throwing him around and using him as a weapon. It is also a “rematch” of sorts from February, as Mantis has a chance to get revenge on the Roughnecks for preventing the Order from participating in King of Trios. Not only that, but it almost revives the Incoherence vs. Roughnecks feud, although Delirious being brainwashed changes the situation just a little bit. However, the most important thing – at least from the perspective of any Order fan – has to be that a win here and a win over the Super Smash Bros. would do wonders for getting the Order a title shot in the very near future. Both of their opponents in New England have issues, with the SSB perhaps having problems with jealousy and the Roughnecks not being on the exact same page, so Mantis has to think 2 points here are at least attainable.

SurfnLucha

As the first round announcements for this year’s Young Lions Cup draw to a close, many fans are theorising as to what the remaining matches will be. Well, if any of you predicted that KC “Cloudy” Day would be action against Chimaera, give yourself a gold star, because that’s exactly what’s going down! Like many other wrestlers on the CHIKARA roster, Cloudy did indeed participate on the Dragon Gate USA debut show, attempting to save Mike Quackenbush and Jigsaw from the attacks of YAMATO and Gran Akuma, and he’s expected to go far in this tournament. However, anyone who’s done a YouTube search or two can see that Chimaera is quite the athletic high-flier so this could be quite the little battle.

FourCornersOrder

Also added to the YLC weekend is participation from the Order of the Neo-Solar Temple. For the first time in many years the Order has no representative in this year’s tournament, but they could walk out of the weekend with valuable points towards Campeonatos de Parejas contendership, as UltraMantis Black and Delirious will be taking part in the night 3 tag team 4-way elimination match. Mantis has never wrestled for the titles despite wrestling for CHIKARA since day 1, but it seems that he now has his best opportunity with Delirious doing his bidding, and May victories over both Arik Cannon and Player Uno (in a trios match) suggest that the former Incoherence member is extremely dangerous and an extremely effective weapon. As long as Mantis holds the Eye of Tyr, you have to imagine that the Order will be hard to stop.

Check out this AWESOME “Previously at CHIKARA” for July, showing a whole lot of recent feuds and angles and all that good stuff.

The latest addition to the upcoming July 31st card in Reading is arguably the biggest match on the card yet and pits two of CHIKARA’s longest-running and popular factions against each other, as Fire Ant, Soldier Ant and Green Ant of The Colony will take on The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple’s UltraMantis Black, Delirious and Crossbones. This comes hot on the heels of CHIKARA’s trip to Japan, where in the main event of the June 13th show in Shin-kiba 1st Ring, Tokyo it was Fire Ant scoring a direct pin over UltraMantis with the Beach Break. These two teams have clashed numerous times in the past in their various incarnations, but considering Mantis’ appreciation for Japan and the embarassment he suffered in Tokyo this could be one of the more heated. Not only that, but the Order are on somewhat of a roll in the United States since the addition of Delirious to the group after they overcame the Saturday Night Slam Masters at “Aniversario Yang”.

This match will also mark the “official” debut on US soil for Green Ant, who was in action on the Japan shows and actually went undefeated in his 3 “CHIKARA in Japan” matches. Whether that will transfer back to the United States remains to be seen. The involvement of three of the ants also raises the question of whether the new “Carpenter Ant” will be in Reading to support his fellow hormigas.

Claudio Castagnoli has a new promo up where he addresses the recent comments expressed by Eddie Kingston.

UltraMantis Black has just posted a new blog on the CHIKARA website explaining quite why he chose to kidnap and warp Delirious using the Eye of Tyr:

5/27/2009: I told all of the doubters and nay-sayers in CHIKARA that I would have my comeuppance and, true to my every word, I so did! You see, the reasoning was quite simple. I had successfully disposed of every traitor that had ever double-crossed myself or The Order. Except for one man – Hallowicked. A man I once called “friend.” My confidant, my unquestioning soldier in the war on CHIKARA. But also, the man who chose to serve his own foolish self-interests by turning his back on me. At the Tag World Grand Prix 2006, while I was sidelined by injury, you put your fate in the hands of chance, and a new partner was “randomly” appointed you. Did you ever look back, Hallowicked? Did you ever think that it was you that destroyed the Dark Breed and gave birth to the Order of the Neo Solar Temple with your insolence? Hallowicked, you, more than any other near-mortal should have known that I never forgive and I never, ever forget.

Of course, revenge is a complex game, and I was forced to do many unsavory things and to break bread with some despicable beings – but it has all been worth it. I knew well the legend of the mysterious Eye of Tyr, and I knew I would have to do whatever it took to wield it’s mystical properties. Storm, Hydra, Cube, Saget, Hero – all just pawns. I never cared what needed to be bought, traded or stolen, or whose back I needed to step on. It took years for all the pieces to align correctly on the board. But I never forgot your betrayal, Hallowicked. And when Dr. Cube was willing to trade me for the name of the private collector in possession of the fabled Eye, the core of my being trembled with excitement – my patience was finally rewarded!

My time spent skulking in the shadows while Hallowicked and Delirious basked in their championship spotlight, my time spent on underacheivers like Sami Callihan and Pinkie Sanchez, who would never be fit for The Order, all this time was time well spent. Why? Because in biding my time, and waiting for the stars to align, I was at last presented an opportunity to wreck your little family, Hallowicked…just as you had wrecked mine.

Finally, at Aniversario weekend, it all came to pass – the dramatic dénouement! The one, true Unholy Triad coming together at last in the ring. The final transubstanciation of The Order, just as our ancient sacred texts had long predicted – UltraMantis Black, Crossbones, Delirious! What a frightening and painful realization it must have been for you, Hallowicked. To know that your tag team partner, your closest ally, was now in the clutches of the one man fully willing and able to destroy you! The Delirious you once knew is erased, and you have been left with nothing more than that sad little street urchin, Frightmare, as your aide. Ha! How your despair amuses me. I win again!

And now, I alone reign supreme over all of CHIKARA! The Order is in complete control of not only our own destiny, but of the fate of every last human cog in the CHIKARA machine. Fighters of the CHIKARA heed my warning: submit to The Order via your own freewill now, or face harsh retribution later. We will enslave or exterminate every last one of you; there is no other alternative. CHIKARA belongs to me!

No one can stop us!

A promo has surfaced regarding the upcoming CHIKARA tour of Japan, which can be viewed here. In it, the rudos who will be making the trip – UltraMantis Black, Crossbones, Jagged, Shane Matthews and Chuck Taylor – make clear their desire for revenge!

The CHIKARA feature page has also revealed exactly what the upcoming Fan Appreciation Night is all about. Straight from the horse’s mouth, “What’s so special about it, you may ask? Well, every paying customer is going to get a free gift at the show, and for this event, all seats in the house, even front row, are priced at just $15.00!”

No new matches yet, but the CHIKARA website folks have uploaded a selection of new roster pictures to reflect some of the newcomers from this past weekend, as well as a few… identity alterations. Here they are!

ctaylorhd icarushd delirioushd greenanthd
L-R: Chuck Taylor, Icarus, Delirious, Green Ant

More information has been revealed about Green Ant following his addition to the roster page. However, it should be noted that since he hasn’t actually made his in-ring debut yet, almost nothing else can be said about him:

Green Ant – Resilient Rookie!
Affiliation: The Colony
Stats: 6′2” – 186 lbs. – 1 year experience
Style: ???
Signature Moves: Dropkick, Flying Tope, Small Package

Speaking of Green Ant, according to the CHIKARA spam a bag was taken from the Philly show last night after the event. The bag contained the ring gear of Green Ant. You can read the complete statement from CHIKARA by clicking here.

The fourth ant that debuted last night has not yet been added and hasn’t even been given a name yet, but he has been dubbed “Carpenter Ant” by several people. A cracking picture of him was taken by board member Bon and that can be viewed by clicking here!

UltraMantis Black has released an updated schedule on his MySpace page that reveals he will be participating on quite a few shows when CHIKARA ventures to Japan next month, as he will be wrestling on five consecutive days:

6/9/2009: Big Japan Pro-Wrestling ~ “D-DASH”
6/10/2009: Hama Pro
6/11/2009: TBA
6/12/2009: Big Japan Pro-Wrestling
6/13/2009: Big Japan Pro-Wrestling vs. CHIKARA

Hama Pro is a small promotion that uses many well-known BJW wrestlers under different gimmicks, such as Ryuji Ito, who competes for Hama Pro as Oriental Dragon.

Here’s an interesting theory about the masked man from the Philly crowd last night…

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.

cannonreturns

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.
