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!

The newest episode of CHIKARA Podcast-a-Go-Go, with clips of The Roughnecks vs. Incoherence and Claudio Castagnoli vs. Shadow Phoenix from “Behind the 8 Ball”, can be watched here.

Be back later today when we put up the promos from “Cibernetico Increible” for your viewing pleasure!

An enormous singles matchup has been signed for “Throwing Life’s Instructions Away” in Easton, as two of the top stars of CHIKARA’s tag division are squaring off in singles competition: Ophidian vs. Hallowicked. While there’s never been much of a rivalry between their respective camps, these two have crossed paths a handful of times in tag competition in the past. However, despite this fact, neither man holds a pinfall over the other. In fact, both men hold singles victories over the other’s tag partner, as Hallowicked defeated Amasis back in May of 2008 at “Cafe Culture”, while Ophidian pinned Frightmare earlier this year at “Motive, Means, Opportunity”. There’s a lot of pride on the line for both men representing their individual stables, and this should be one of the best matches of the stacked Season Finale weekend!

MainEventMatch

You know the name of tomorrow’s event in West Springfield? Yeah. “Man Makes Plans, and God Laughs”. Well, God’s clearly a regular old Mr. Chuckles this evening because he has chosen to play havoc with this weekend’s cards. It was announced earlier today that Gran Akuma cannot participate due to an injury suffered in training. As a result, the Osirian Portal’s Campeonatos de parejas-related double jeopardy has been halved, as Icarus & Gran Akuma have opted to cash in their 3 points at a later date. This means that there is no longer any ambiguity: Nashua on Sunday will indeed see the rematch from “Revelation X” as the Osirian Portal of Amasis and Ophidian will defend their belts against The Colony’s Fire Ant & Soldier Ant. This marks the ants’ second title shot but their first under standard Campeonatos rules, as their previous match was a one fall contest.

CampeonatosBout

FrightChuck

However, another question comes to mind: What about the West Springfield main event? Well, there’s been some shuffling there too. With Akuma on the shelf, he will be replaced by fellow F.I.S.T. member Chuck Taylor alongside Icarus as they go against Amasis and Ophidian. However, unlike the previous time where Taylor had to replace Akuma, this will not be a tag title contest and will perhaps serve as a sign of things to come for the eventual title match. In addition to that, the singles match in Nashua between Frightmare and Chuck Taylor has been modified, as Icarus will team with Taylor again to face Frightmare and his mentor Hallowicked.

TFIStable

With Chuck now moved into the main event of West Springfield, this leaves an opening in another match on the card, as now Vin Gerard and STIGMA need a third man in their trios match against Lince Dorado, Jimmy “Equinox” Olsen and Mike Quackenbush. With Colin Delaney out of the picture due to his singles match with Dasher Hatfield, there is no natural replacement for Chuck. The mystery man has not been named as of yet as the rudos will be given a partner on the night via the infamous random draw.

We haven’t updated the site in a few days, but the main CHIKARA website was hacked a couple of days ago. The front page redirected to a new website containing a YouTube vide, while every other link was disabled. The video, which can be viewed here, appears to feature the mystery man in white from “Young Lions Cup VII: Night 3″, who states that UltraMantis Black has something that belongs to his family. Mantis must return this thing “or be destroyed”.

Promos from the Young Lions Cup DVDs are up here!

Last night’s Dragon Gate USA show in Chicago saw many great matches, including an outstanding contest between Davey Richards and Shingo Takagi, plus Bryan Danielson vs. Naruki Doi and the Young Bucks against current Twin Gate champions Genki Horiguchi & Ryo Saito. However, being CHIKARAFans.com, it’s important that we focus on the CHIKARA involvement, which saw Mike Quackenbush & Jigsaw looking to avenge the events of Philadelphia against YAMATO & Gran Akuma. They did end up winning after YAMATO accidentally speared Akuma and Quack pinned the F.I.S.T. member with the QD2. However, the rudos had the last laugh after the match. With Jigsaw incapacitated due to damage inflicted on his knee during the match, YAMATO grabbed Quack and clamped the sleeper hold onto him, forcing him to pass out. However, help came in the form of “The Nightmare Warrior” Hallowicked, who rushed to the ring to save his trainer. Once again the tecnicos have achieved the pinfall victory but the rudos have escaped with the last laugh.

Speaking of Hallowicked, he participated in the second FRAY! match, alongside Young Lions Cup participant Prince Mustafa Ali and former YLC champion Arik Cannon. Entering first, Wicked lasted all the way until the end before falling to Johnny Gargano.

Changes are afoot for the September 12 card in West Springfield, as the QuackSaw vs. Incoherence tag match is off. It’s not known quite why this change has been made yet, but considering Mike Quackenbush’s recent return from back surgery and the July match where Icarus damaged it heavily, that could be the reason. However, both members of Incoherence will be in West Springfield, and both will be in singles competition!

ClaudioWicked

The first of two matches added to the card pits one of the, if not the top student from the Chikara Wrestle Factory up against one of the current head trainers at the school, as Hallowicked will face Claudio Castagnoli in a match pitting two of CHIKARA’s tallest wrestlers up against each other. This match comes about in quite the fated fashion, as two years ago these two men were scheduled to wrestle on CHIKARA’s first event in Connecticut, entitled “Showdown in CrisisLand”. That match never ended up taking place, as it was cancelled in favour of an NWA title tournament match between Claudio and Sicodelico, Jr. and now the match will finally occur as a result of another match being cancelled. The match is also interesting if you consider Claudio’s current feud with Eddie Kingston, a man who Hallowicked spent much of 2007 battling in wild brawls. Not only that, but in the past year both Claudio and Wicked have had their issues with “The Big Rig” Brodie Lee. Both men also match up stylistically, as both have shown decent strength (Claudio with his suplexes, Wicked with his Go 2 Sleepy Hollow) but combined that with speed and agility, so it’ll be interesting to see how these two match up. Wicked will be intending to win this to underline his position among the elite of CHIKARA, while Claudio will surely be wanting to prove all the naysayers who doubt that he’s still the CHIKARA ace wrong.

YLCRematch

The second match is a rematch from mere weeks ago, as Frightmare will be intending to avenge his Young Lions Cup loss when he goes up against Brendan Michael Thomas. BMT raised a few eyebrows in his CHIKARA debut by pinning Frightmare, a man who was tipped to go far in the tournament, and the young Incoherence member won’t be happy to let a newcomer get into CHIKARA at his expense. However, BMT knows that many were shocked by his initial win and a second victory here would surely convince everyone that it wasn’t a fluke, earning him a regular spot on the CHIKARA roster.

Carpenter Ant has finally been added to the CHIKARA roster page. Here’s his vitals.

Less of a news day today, moreso a day for random post-show tidbits, website updates, pictures and other nonsense like that. Things went a bit lax on the update front last week, so I’ll mention the matches that were added to next month’s weekend in New England.

ArielSara

CHIKARA’s women’s division has been dominated by two women since mid-2006: Daizee Haze (see below) and Sara Del Rey. Several women have attempted to knock the two off their perches, ranging from Candice LaRae to Sassy Stephie to Rayna Von Tash. None have been successful. The latest in that line of ladies will make her debut over CHIKARA’s weekend in New England, as SHIMMER star Ariel will be looking to send a message to Sara Del Rey in their singles match. Ariel has wrestled – and beaten – some of the best SHIMMER has to offer, including MsChif, Nikki Roxx and Cheerleader Melissa (aka TNA’s Alissa Flash), so she’s going to be anything but a pushover. She also has history with Del Rey, as “The American Angel” viciously assaulted Ariel on SHIMMER Volume 19 following a battle royal before defeating her later in the evening. It’s the Dariel vs. the Royal Butterfly in Nashua!

TagOTecnicos

The night before in West Springfield, the new town is in for quite the treat as Mike Quackenbush and Jigsaw will be in tag team action against Incoherence, Hallowicked and Frightmare. On night 3 of the Young Lions Cup Frightmare and his tag team partner Turbo came up short against Quack and Jorge Rivera, but this will be the third high profile occasion where he has come up against his maestro so he will surely be growing in confidence every time they wrestle. This match is also quite interesting as it pits Quack against the old and new generation of his students, as Hallowicked was one of the first graduates of the Wrestle Factory and Frightmare is one of the more recent. It also revives the Jigsaw vs. Hallowicked rivalry from 2005 in a big way. Since that time Hallowicked has renounced his rudo ways, fighting for the forces of good, but old habits die hard and you’d have to imagine that, give the chance, both Jig and Wicked would love to prove themselves to be the better man once again. Expect fast-paced flying and submissions aplenty. Blinking isn’t recommended for this one.

CHIKARA released the full and official results for night 3 of Young Lions Cup soon after the conclusion of the event, and they also announced the attendance on Twitter: 393.

8. Young Lions Cup VII Final ~ Young Lions Cup Title Match: Player Dos (18:27 ~ Super Plancha) Colin Delaney
- Player Dos becomes the 12th Young Lions Cup champion.

Dasher Hatfield now has a profile picture among other things on the CHIKARA tecnico roster page. No Vökoder on the rudo side of things, nor has anything more been noted about the mystery man who distracted Mantis and Delirious on Sunday, but the former is extremely new and the latter doesn’t have a name yet and hasn’t wrestled, so don’t expect them for a while. Plus, Carpenter Ant ahead of them in the line. The Sea Donsters are still listed as a unit but it can only be a matter of time before that gets sorted out.

Much like the Great Khali, Daizee Haze would like some competition in CHIKARA. Two words: Cody Deaner. Him or former IWA Mid-South Women’s Champion, the neon-haired wonder that is Chuck Taylor.

Marshall’s got some YLC pics here and here.

Green Ant and Soldier Ant were rocking weird new masks after the show this past Sunday. Here’s a picture of Green Ant looking kinda like Osaka Pro’s Miracleman!

The final two weekends in the 2009 CHIKARA calendar have been announced. Both will be Easton/Philadelphia weekends (on Saturday and Sunday), as has become the norm in the last year or so, and the first of the Philly shows will play host to the annual Torneo Cibernetico.

An unusually busy weekend in CHIKARA news – let’s waste no time!

First up is the addition of the 19th entrant into the Young Lions Cup, and its the newest member to the CHIKARA roster – Carpenter Ant. The fourth member of the Colony made his presence felt at the “Aniversario Yang” main event when he helped Green Ant fend off interference from Gran Akuma in the big double mask vs. double hair match. This time around in Easton he’ll be making his in ring debut. Very, very little is known about this young upstart. We’ll see if he can impress the CHIKARA fans and uphold the high standards that come with the Colony name in five weeks!

Next up is a replacement match set for Reading due to the injury of Eddie Kingston that forced his exclusion from the show. In his place in the scheduled match against Claudio Castagnoli will be the all-American powerhouse Tim Donst, who will be looking to capitalize on Claudio’s recent lack of luck to gain a big head of steam rolling into Young Lions Cup weekend. Claudio will be looking to break that losing streak that’s frustrated him so much. Fan Appreciation Night is right around the corner, and this is sure to be one of the most anticipated matches on the card.

CHIKARA also announced their events in September and October, including confirming the big return to New England. Saturday, September 12th will see CHIKARA’s return to Massachusetts as they present “Man Makes Plans, and God Laughs” in West Springfield (hopefully that name is not a negative omen for plans being messed up for that show!). The following day sees their debut in New Hampshire – Nashua specifically, as we hope Holly Flax is in attendance – for “Hiding in Plain Sight”. CHIKARA returns to Pennsylvania on October 17th in Easton with “An Optimistic View of a Pessimistic World”, and follows up the next day in Philadelphia with “Three-Fisted Tales”. We’ll be sure to fill you in on all info with these cards as it comes out.

Finally, Inter Species Wrestling unveiled two matches on their upcoming United States debut show “The Worst That Could Happen”, set for August 8th in East Hartford, Connecticut. Current ISW Champion (and former CHIKARA Campeon de Parejas) Player Uno survived his battle against Viking this past weekend, nearly landing his face into thumbtacks in the process before putting Viking away with a Fire Thunder Bomb onto the tacks. However, coming up in Connecticut may be one of his biggest challenges to date, as he takes on the dark minion of the underworld Hallowicked in what’s sure to be one of the most outstanding matches on the card. The last time these two faced off in singles competition was in the finals of C*4’s first Snowbrawl tournament in 2008; Uno claimed victory and took home a big chocolate bunny for his efforts. Bigger stakes on the line here, who will walk out as the ISW champion? Also added is a Bunkhouse Brawl between two ISW regulars that were seen in CHIKARA at March’s big King of Trios tournament, as Beef Wellington takes on Twiggy. Get your tickets now!

Alright, I’m exhausted after all of that. Let’s get you the info on all of these shows so we can take a quick break until tomorrow!

Following last night’s CHIKARA Podcast Update the second match on the upcoming Reading card will pit Hallowicked, Frightmare and Hydra up against the UnStable trio of Vin Gerard, STIGMA and Colin Delaney. Incoherence are coming off the loss of Delirious to the Order of the Neo-Solar Temple so they will be looking to show the CHIKARA fans that they are no weaker as a pair than they were as a threesome, while Hydra’s regular team with Tim Donst has put him in contention with the UnStable on many occasions. On the other side of the ring, the UnStable have had mixed fortunes recently and a win here could turn that around, as Vin Gerard’s victory in Easton over Claudio Castagnoli has been countered by STIGMA’s loss to Donst and a tag team loss to Glacier and D’Lo Brown. Both sides will want to get back on track but only one will succeed.

May’s Aniversario events, Yin and Yang, have just been released on DVD with unique cover artwork done by Dave Perillo. The DVDs can be found at Smart Mark Video by clicking here and here.

A pretty snazzy interview with UltraMantis Black can be purchased for $2.95 by clicking here. Half an hour of outstanding UMB fun!

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.
