This past weekend was a huge step forward in the career of Lince Dorado – he’d had two successful years since debuting, achieving a lot in a short amount of time. King of Trios victory, winning the first ever Loteria Letal, countless singles wins over big names. However, 2009 hasn’t treated Lince all that great, as he’s just been stuck in the middle of the pack as “just another guy”. That was, until the annual Cibernetico match came around; Lince seized the moment and managed to not only survive to be one of the last few standing, but had two big consecutive eliminations over Jigsaw and Player Dos. His reward for eliminating a former and the current Young Lions Cup holders? A shot at the Cup for himself, as Lince and Dos square off in Philadelphia on the season finale. Can Lince grab the proverbial brass ring and end 2009 off with a bang?

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!

TFIStable

As the West Springfield card approaches completion, it’s only appropriate that the card plays host to a trios match, one of CHIKARA’s signature bouts. Despite earlier concerns following the cancellation of the Quacksaw vs. Incoherence tag match, Mike Quackenbush will indeed be in the house, teaming with Jimmy “Equinox” Olsen and Lince Dorado of The Future Is Now against the rudo triad of Chuck Taylor and UnStable members Vin Gerard and STIGMA. The issues between Quack and STIGMA have been well-documented, even though they still to this day hold 3 points and could theoretically challenge for los Campeonatos de Parejas. However, there’s a few other issues in this one. For Lince Dorado and Equinox, this is their chance to gain some payback on Chuck Taylor for him robbing them in the semi-finals of King of Trios when he fouled and pinned Helios. It also revives the TFIN vs. UnStable feud, more specifically Equinox vs. Vin Gerard, well known for their epic ladder match in January.

The Young Lions Cup DVDs are now on sale. Buy them.

A new blog by Leonard F. Chikarason announces a few things. Firstly, Nick Papgiorgio has been benched for 30 days after a couple of controversial calls this year. Furthermore, Eddie Kingston and Claudio Castagnoli will have a rematch after the abrupt finish to their match on the third night of the Young Lions Cup. And lastly, he suggests that this year’s Cibernetico may be increible-themed, as the show title implies!

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.

Wrapping up the news from yesterday and today!

Stinky vs. Colin Delaney!

Many accusations have been made regarding the personal hygiene of Vin Gerard and the UnStable, including numerous implications that they may in fact be homeless and perhaps even live in the many dumpsters across the state of Pennsylvania. We here at CHIKARA Fans couldn’t possibly comment on the matter but someone in the CHIKARA offices is clearly having a good laugh at the UnStable’s expense because round 1 of the Young Lions Cup pits Colin Delaney up against Inter-Species Wrestling’s hungry hungry hobo Stinky the Homeless Guy. Stinky may sound and look like a bit of a novelty character, a man to be taken lightly, but any ISW fan who has seen some of his battles against the likes of Flip (formerly of the “D. Burger” clan) can confirm that he’s anything but a pushover and Colin’s gonna have to be on form to roll over him.

Arik Cannon vs. Lince Dorado!

In non-tournament action over Young Lions Cup weekend, former Young Lions Cup Champion “The Anarchist” Arik Cannon will be in the house as he takes on the winner of the first DGUSA FRAY match, “The Golden Lynx of Lucha Libre” Lince Dorado. Lince will be taking a similar risk to Soldier Ant over YLC weekend by taking a non-tournament match which could hurt him if he wins his singles match and the 6-way on night 1. However, history is on his side if you look at the 2007 Young Lions Cup where Chuck Taylor defeated Cabana Man Dan and won the 6-way on night 1, beat Arik Cannon in a non-tournament match on night 2, and then defeated Ricochet on night 3 to win the Young Lions Cup. This also comes one night before Cannon takes part in the Golden Dream trios match where three of his opponents – Jigsaw, Helios and Jimmy “Equinox” Olsen – are team-mates of Dorado, so he could see this as an opportunity to find out exactly what he’s in for.

Create-A-Wrestler vs. Jason Hades!

In today’s YLC update, the newly-gimmicked Create-A-Wrestler will be in opening round action on night 1 but he won’t have it easy as he faces IWA-MS star and former Light-Heavyweight Champion Jason Hades. Hades will be out to make an impact in his CHIKARA debut but must make sure he doesn’t overlook CAW, who has looked fairly impressive in recent singles competition (including a strong outing against UltraMantis Black). CAW will also have to be considered a bit of a wildcard because Hades will have no idea what to expect from CAW’s new character, but Hades has wrestled some of the best the independents have to offer so you’d have to think that if he can connect with the Killswitch, regardless of CAW’s gimmick, it’ll be over.

In other news, two of the main matches for the second Dragon Gate USA card on September 6th have been confirmed, as Bryan Danielson will take on the Dream and Brave Gate Champion Naruki Doi while Shingo Takagi goes up against Davey Richards. CHIKARA’s Mike Quackenbush and Jigsaw have been confirmed as participating on the card, as has the man who disrespected all of CHIKARA on Saturday, KAMIKAZE member YAMATO, so there has to be a strong possibility of a CHIKARA vs. Dragon Gate match involving those men.

Following all of the partner vs. partner announcements this week for the opening round of the Young Lions Cup, it feels a bit odd to be talking about a match between men who aren’t members of the same tag team. However, we finally have one, as The Future Is Now member Lince Dorado tackles Elite Pro’s Prince Mustafa Ali. Both men are known for their high-flying abilities so this shouldn’t be expected to remain on the ground for long. You would also have to imagine that if Lince improves this weekend for Dragon Gate USA in their Fray match that he would come into this match with much confidence, while Ali will be out to embarass Lince on his home turf and perhaps earn a regular spot on the CHIKARA roster!



Since it was announced a few weeks ago that the Reading show would feature a match involving wrestlers from CHIKARA’s past, many people have been theorising as to who could be involved, especially considering the timing of the announcement came very close to the announcement that Jolly Roger will be returning on the upcoming ISW show in Connecticut. Well, CHIKARA have finally confirmed who will be taking part, and it’s two men from the early days of CHIKARA who participated in the alumni battle royal back in December. Taking part in this match are Dragonfly, a graduate of the very first Wrestle Factory class, and Rorschach, one of the two graduates from the third class. Rorschach disappeared from regular CHIKARA competition in late 2006 so he would under normal circumstances be at a severe disadvantage, but Dragonfly left CHIKARA before the first anniversary show so who knows how he will look following such a long absense.

CHIKARA Fans readers, the petition has worked – Stinky the Homeless Guy, Inter Species Wrestling’s resident hobo, has been added to the Young Lions Cup tournament as the 24th and final entrant! A recent string of bad luck has befallen the homeless hero, as his best friend Flip D. Berger was brainwashed and turned against him by Moohammad, to the point where Flip defeated Stinky last weekend for his ISW Other Title (Flip then handed the belt over to Moohammad). However, despite his poor luck, he’s been fortunate enough to be brought along on somewhat of a US tour, beginning the weekend prior to Young Lions Cup weekend with ISW’s US debut, “The Worst That Could Happen” in East Hartford, CT. Will Stinky be able to turn the tides around and bring the Cup home?

If he does, he’ll have some stiff competition as we all know. Thankfully for him and the other 23 competitiors, they now have somewhat of an idea as to what to look forward to, as CHIKARA announced who will be competing on nights one and two today! The field has been split as follows:

Night One: Create-a-Wrestler, Prince Mustafa Ali, Lince Dorado, Jason Hades, Hydra, Colin Delaney, Brandon Michael Thomas, Tim Donst, El Leonino, Frightmare, Stinky the Homeless Guy, Grizzly Redwood

Night Two: Yellow Dog, Soldier Ant, Cloudy, Darin Corbin, Ryan Cruz, Player Uno, Player Dos, Trik Davis, Carpenter Ant, Shane Hollister, Chimaera, Bret Race

Mike Quackenbush is making his return to wrestling next weekend at the big Dragon Gate USA debut in Philadelphia, but he makes his return to CHIKARA the weekend after as he teams with Jigsaw to take on Icarus and Gran Akuma, Team F.I.S.T. These four men will actually square off against one another in the DGUSA CHIKARA atomico, but they’ll jump into it again in the quest for those three points needed for a shot at the Campeonatos de Parejas in Reading. Two weeks remaining until the big show, get your tickets now.

Finally, in regards to the Dragon Gate USA show, Lince Dorado has been announced as the fourth entrant into The Fray, the big preshow gauntlet. This’ll be a big chance for Lince to make a splash in front of the Philadelphia crowd and impress the DGUSA higher ups. Those with tickets in the first three rows will be the first to see who will stake their claim as the future of Dragon Gate USA coming up in six days!

A new day brings more participants for this year’s Young Lions Cup, and they are both CHIKARA born and bred! First of all, “The Golden Lynx” Lince Dorado will be taking part in the competition this time around, his third attempt at winning the cup. In both the 2007 and 2008 editions of the tournament Lince has made it to the 6-way elimination match but has never made it to the final, but this time around he’ll be hoping to do much better than that and actually win the whole thing, finally attaining a singles title after past near-misses in both the Young Lions Cup and Rey de Voladores! Also participating in his third YLC is Tim Donst, who has come a long way since his glorified squashing at the hands of Shayne Hawke in 2007, and in fact he has something else in common with Lince, as both men fell in quick succession last year to Ophidian’s unbreakable prawn hold in the 6-way. Donst has recently shown frustration at his tag team partner Hydra but he has just vanquished his big singles foe STIGMA, so perhaps that singles momentum will carry him far in the 2009 Young Lions Cup.

As announced on the CHIKARA Pod-Per-View yesterday (and the Twitter account), upcoming CHIKARA dates after the Young Lions Cup weekend are as follows:

- September 12th in West Springfield, MA
- September 13th in Nashua, NH
- October 17th in Easton, PA
- October 18th in Philadelphia, PA

And speaking of the Pod-Per-View, it’s still ready and waiting to be bought for a mere $2.99! The show features a couple of cracking matches, F.I.S.T. (Gran Akuma & Icarus) vs. Cheech & Cloudy and a Best of 3 Falls match between Fire & Soldier Ant of The Colony and the Osirian Portal’s Amasis & Ophidian. Plus some clips of Mike Quackenbush and Negro Navarro. Not too shabby! Click here and get to it.

There’s some sad news to report today as on Monday both the original La Parkita and Espectrito II (who were brothers) were found dead following an encounter with prostitutes. Parkita is infamous in CHIKARA for his match at the August 2007 “Maximum Overdraft” event in Philadelphia, where he defeated Payaso del Futuro and then proceeded to dance with a female fan, so he was certainly a character. The story so far suggests the two had some drinks at a bar, picked up the prostitutes and took their party back to the hotel room. The prostitutes ended up spiking the minis’ drinks with eye drops and this caused the two to overdose and die. They were found on Monday (the next morning) and the prostitutes were located and arrested. Espectrito II, however, is NOT Guerrerita del Futuro from the Streamwood CHIKARA show (as first suspected), according to people who know Guerrerita. Thanks to CubsFan for his information on the matter.

UPDATE: The CHIKARA Office spillin’ the beans on the forum, which is much appreciated. According to that post, La Parkita had been living in Kennett’s Square, PA for a few years, explaining his participation on the “Maximum Overdraft” show (and also why he showed up unannounced at a CHIKARA Pod-Per-View show prior to the Philly booking). There have been three La Parkitas over the years, with the current AAA one being the third incarnation, and the original had rarely wrestled in recent years due to the legal issues over the name. It’s noted that his “Maximum Overdraft” match may have been his last match. The post closes with “Everyone at CHIKARA wants to express their sincere condolences to his family”.

A quick update this weekend before we hopefully get the chance to punch the clock for the weekend, as the month of July sees a few new additions into the mix. While Ophidian has been removed from the Dragon Gate USA atomico match due to his broken arm (see yesterday’s update for details), the atomico squad has added Jigsaw to the ranks to team alongside Fire Ant and Soldier Ant. Unlike the rest of the men in the match so far, this will not be Jigsaw’s first time appearing on pay-per-view television, as he appeared as a member of the Vulture Squad in past Ring of Honor PPV’s. However, this is possibly Jig’s biggest stage yet in his career, as an impressive performance here could perhaps pay off in the form of a proper Dragon Gate Japanese tour for any of these men.



Also in the month of August is a match added to the “Never Kneel at the Altar of Conformity” card in Reading, as perpetual rivals Lince Dorado and Amasis square off in their first ever CHIKARA singles bout. The two men have had a competitive feud with one another dating back to Amasis’ early days in CHIKARA, when him and Ophidian took two points away from Lince and El Pantera in one of the Portal’s first tag matches way back in November of 2007. How will the devious Funky Pharaoh fare without his partner at his side? We’ll find out in just five weeks when CHIKARA hits Reading for the last time in 2009!

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?

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.
