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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

TagFracas

As CHIKARA says hello to New Hampshire, they’ll also be saying goodbye to a friend as the Bryan Danielson indy farewell tour will make a stop in Nashua on September 13. He will be teaming with one of his 2009 King of Trios buddies – “Double C” Claudio Castagnoli – in tag team competition. Their opponents are arguably one of the best duos on the indies today, Mike Quackenbush and Jigsaw. “The American Dragon” had quite a heated confrontation with Quack at King of Trios when Danielson focused on Quack’s injured back, leading to Quack applying the Cattle Mutilation in an act of vengeance, so it’ll be interesting to see how long those two can stick to the straight mat wrestling. This match could also bring about some memories of the 2005 CHIKARA vs. Kings of Wrestling tags, where Claudio often clashed with Quack, Jigsaw and various other tecnicos. As all indy wrestling fans wish Bryan Danielson well on his way to the WWE, Quack and Jig won’t be willing to show mercy and allow Danielson to halt their quest to become the Campeones.

Speaking of the Campeonatos de Parejas, F.I.S.T. have a special update posted on the Podcast feed ahead of their title match on September 12 against the Osirian Portal.

The second of three DVD covers for Young Lions Cup has been released.

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.

Dragon Gate USA “opened the Historic Gate” last night, holding their first show before a packed house at the Arena. The main event saw the holder of both the Brave and Dream Gate, Naruki Doi, overcome the man he defeated to win the Dream Gate, Shingo Takagi, with his signature Muscular Bomb, underlined the fact that he is the man to beat in all of Dragon Gate nowadays. Also on the card was a battle between YAMATO and BxB Hulk (with Daizee Haze acting as one of Hulk’s dancers!), a show-stealing match between the Young Bucks and CIMA/Susumu Yokosuka, and a killer singles battle between Masato Yoshino and Dragon Kid!

However, the biggest news from a CHIKARA perspective has to be the post-match events of the CHIKARA showcase match. The match itself was a grand showcase of what has brought CHIKARA to the dance, if you will, with high-flying, fast paced action all over the place, ending in Jigsaw pinning Icarus with his signature Jig ‘n’ Tonic to earn the tecnicos a big win. Once the match had finished and 7 of the 8 wrestlers had gone to the back, “Lightning” Mike Quackenbush grabbed the microphone and introduced a tribute video for the legendary Jorge “Skayde” Rivera. He also added that perhaps a Dragon Gate vs. CHIKARA match should take place in the future, which brought out KAMIKAZE member YAMATO. Despite a recent change of heart back home in Japan, the ever-devious YAMATO lured Quack into a false sense of security by implying he respected Quack before fouling Quackenbush and adding (via translation) that he had no respect for Quack, CHIKARA or Skayde. Jigsaw attempted to save Quack but also got attacked, drawing F.I.S.T. member Gran Akuma from the backstage area. Jigsaw appealed to him, saying that YAMATO had disrespected all of the CHIKARA wrestlers, but instead of helping him Akuma chose to side with YAMATO, putting a beating on Quack and Jigsaw. Cheech and Cloudy attempted to make the save but were quickly sent to the floor, and the YAMATO/Akuma alliance was finally sent packing by the trio of Fire Ant, Soldier Ant and Lince Dorado. With Jigsaw earning the win in this match that means that he will now be on the second DGUSA card in Chicago (along with Quack), so it’ll be interesting to see if those two challenge YAMATO and Akuma to a tag match.

Other CHIKARA participation saw the aforementioned Lince Dorado overcome Cheech, Cloudy and several others en route to an impressive victory in the FRAY match after using his signature Shooting Star Press.

It was also announced that on November 28, 2009 DGUSA will return to the Arena with a one-night tournament to decide the holder of the Open the Freedom Gate, the top singles title in DGUSA.
