Back in October, Sara del Rey and Daizee Haze came to the conclusion that they are the best female wrestlers in the world, and that perhaps they were the best wrestlers in the world regardless of gender. It’s hard to disagree; any challenge they’ve faced in CHIKARA, they’ve walked out on top. However, it’s not as if they had their chance at facing off against the men of the locker room in the ring. When they joined Die Brüderschaft, they sent a message to CHIKARA – Sara del Rey and Daizee Haze are ready to take on anyone that is put in front of them. On January 31st at “A Touch of Class”, they’ll get a chance to prove their point against some top competition – former Campeones de Parejas Ophidian and AmasisThe Osirian Portal. Will Sara and Daizee begin their steamroll over the competition and to the Campeonatos de Parejas? The road starts in Philadelphia in a little under four weeks.

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 first main event of season nine has been signed, sealed and delivered to the fans, and while CHIKARA’s management may be more corrupt than Congress, they surely haven’t given up on giving the fans quality wrestling matches.

Team F.I.S.T.Icarus and Gran Akuma – have been sitting on three points for quite a while, dating back to September when they were originally scheduled to get a title shot against former champions the Osirian Portal in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Unfortunately, fate had its way with Gran Akuma’s physical well-being and put a delay to F.I.S.T.’s hopes of regaining the Campeonatos de Parejas. In that time? Fire Ant and Soldier Ant capitalized on F.I.S.T.’s delays and the Portal’s injuries and grabbed up the belts for themselves.

Now, these two duos face off again, adding yet another chapter to their storied rivalry. We all know the history between these two squads is deep. F.I.S.T. are the most dangerous duo in all of CHIKARA, and The Colony know this better than anyone. They took out their partner Worker Ant with one quick move on the outside. They won King of Trios, a tournament that The Colony were heavy favorites to take home. Even though they didn’t win the match and eventually lost their hair, F.I.S.T. even took The Colony to limits they had never reached before in a lucha de apuestas. Now, they look to take home the belts one more time.

January 31st. Philadelphia. Team F.I.S.T. vs. The Colony. One more time.

Sorry for the lack of updates up here as of late…we’ve been incredibly busy working on a new project that we hope to roll out within the next day or two. I think it’ll deliver on expectations. You’ll know when it hits! But hey, we’ve got a LOT of CHIKARA news to catch up on…so let’s do that!

First off, the schedule for the first quarter of 2010 has rolled out, and it’s a heavy one! While King of Trios has been confirmed for season nine, it’s gonna be a long road to get there as there are five big events in the first three months of the year that see CHIKARA expand into new territory and revisit some old ones! January 31st sees the year kick off in Philadelphia as CHIKARA presents “A Touch of Class”. Then, the convoy steamrolls through Pennsylvania in February as Reading gets hit with “The Mint Condition” on the 27th, and Schuylkill County gets its first CHIKARA action since Barnesville’s “New Star Navigation” all the way back in 2007 with “A World of Comforting Illusions”. Finally, fret not, all Lehigh Valley fans, as you’ll see the return to Easton on March 20th with “Wit, Verve and a Bit o’ Nerve” which is complimented with CHIKARA’s New Jersey debut the following day as Westville, NJ hosts “Testimony of Evil”. A packed schedule in the first quarter of the year, and we’ll have all updates on those cards as they roll out right here!

However, the biggest news from CHIKARA so far in the off season relates to both the ever-expanding Brüderschaft der Kreuzes and the future of Leonard F. Chikarason. It was announced that Chikarason has been moved to strictly commentary duty, as the election for Director of Fun for 2010 was won by none other than Dieter VonSteigerwalt, a man who the public knows nothing about except for his seeming affiliation with the Brüderschaft. What will 2010 bring under the rule of VonSteigerwalt?

The DVD’s for the 2009 Season Finale events have been released. Head over to Smart Mark Video now to pick up “Throwing Life’s Instructions Away” and “Three-Fisted Tales”.

Today’s the big day – the final event of CHIKARA’s epic eighth season is upon us, “Three-Fisted Tales” in Philadelphia. In what’s sure to be one of the most memorable cards in quite some time, we finally see the conclusion to the 2009 trilogy of Campeonatos de Parejas matches as Fire Ant and Soldier Ant, Colony representatives and current Campeones, defend their belts against the men they defeated for the titles, The Osirian Portal of Ophidian and Amasis. We’ll also see the conclusion to the big Eddie Kingston vs. Claudio Castagnoli feud today as they square off in a Respect Match. Surely there are going to be some surprises today – will the BDK crew make their impact felt today, as they have in recent months in Philadelphia? Will we finally learn more about their mission and exactly who the heck they are?

Preshow Notes: Very tired today, so excuse me if the details are a bit lacking. Strong crowd, very lively. Attendance estimate is around 280. Both Jigsaw and Akuma are out after not being cleared by doctors.

1. Green Ant, Carpenter Ant [The Colony], Dasher Hatfield & Sugar Dunkerton [The Throwbacks] vs. Vin Gerard, Colin Delaney, STIGMA [The UnStable] & Brodie Lee: Carpenter Ant still the odd man out with no Colony cape. Sugar D takes down Brodie early and goes for a slam dunk, but Brodie swats him down with a block. Carpenter Ant and STIGMA now, and Carp broke Stigma’s nose again. Bleeding quite a bit here. Gerard and Green Ant now, Gerard and Colin attempt some heelery but Green is on top of things today. Game 2 of the Rudos vs. Tecnicos baseball series is teased, but Brodie’s not having any of the shenanigans. Brodie with a RIDICULOUS running chop on Dasher. All eight men run rampant until Brodie kills Green Ant with the big boot in 11:14. Okay match. Heels spend extra time celebrating their win.

2. Helios vs. Yujiro Kushida: Very similar to last night with a lot of early ground work, but Helios had a lot of Kushida’s tactics scouted with some of unique reversals. Some really cool stuff in this match but just not as good as Kushida’s match with Dos last night. Helios wins with the 630 in 10:46..

3. Tim Donst vs. Player Uno: Very glad to see Uno here on finale weekend! Crowd is heavily behind him, and he’s laying it in early with some heavy chops. Donst is a heavy rudo, resorting to every trick in the book. Donst goes for a Hydralock but Uno turns it into a stunner for two. Uno’s offense tonight is on point, he looks really good doing all sorts of innovative stuff. Uno taps out Donst in 6:17.

4. Hallowicked & Frightmare [Incoherence] vs. UltraMantis Black & Delirious [The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple]: Notable that Crossbones is here on the outside, keeping a keen eye on the front door of the Arena for any BDK business. Really fun and fast paced match so far, Delirious doing a majority of the work for the Order. Delirious and Wicked going buckwild on each other, Shadows Over Heck kicked out of at a one count. Yakuza kick from Wicked on Delirious that should’ve netted the win but Mantis saves him. Delirious with a sick Praying Mantis Bomb on Frightmare in 10:58 to give The Temple their third point.

Intermission. Return is January 31st in the Arena.

5. Mike Quackenbush & Jorge “Skayde” Rivera vs. Icarus & Chuck Taylor [F.I.S.T.]: Small pocket of fans booing Quack again this month. Another really fun, but standard fare tag match. Icarus working over Skayde’s knee in deadly fashion. A bit of miscommunication on F.I.S.T.’s part, but it wasn’t enough as Chuck Taylor tapped Skayde with the Cross Crab in 11:23.

6. CHIKARA Young Lions Cup ~ V3: Player Dos (c) vs. Lince Dorado: Slow start, but Lince picks it up big with an Asai 450 to the outside that looked awesome. Just a real spotty match, feels like a sequence of moves that’s nothing special. Lince goes for the shooting star senton but lands on his ass. Dos just german’d Lince off the apron onto the steps! Insanity! Player Dos hits a frog splash to retain the Cup. Lince was carried out by his stablemates, clearly an attempt to play on Lince’s accident two years ago.

8. Respect Match: Eddie Kingston vs. Claudio Castagnoli: Claudio runs right out the gates and hits a Ricola Bomb for two, only for Kingston to combat with a backfist for two. They keep the pressure going, just brutalizing one another in ridiculous fashion. Just an incredible back and forth match, brutal as all hell. Kingston with a huge tope! They’re brawling on the outside and Claudio throws a CHIKARA trainee in the way of a huge Kingston strike, providing just enough of a distraction to get in a bicycle kick and an Alpamare Waterslide on the apron. Ricola Bomb and Kingston’s out at one! German for two! Clothesline for two and the crowd is strongly behind Kingston. Claudio with a pumphandle off the top…two count! Kingston kicks out! Bicycle knee, uppercut…and Claudio gets the win in 15:53. Awesome match, strong contender for the best this year in CHIKARA. Kingston says he doesn’t respect Claudio. He pushed Claudio and tested him, and Claudio still can’t put his demon away. Says that Claudio and his former tag team partner are shady people, and that he deserves the respect of no one. Backfist and King leaves.

8. CHIKARA Campeonatos de Parejas ~ V2: Fire Ant & Soldier Ant [The Colony] (c) vs. Ophidian & Amasis [The Osirian Portal];

Primera Caida: Icarus and Akuma are sitting in the entraceway watching closely for who they have to face next. Vokoder is standing in the rafters behind Mantis on commentary, both of them keeping a keen eye on the action. Crowd is split dead even with the two teams. Solid stuff, the guys are going at it strong. Amasis gets the first fall over Fire Ant to put the Portal up 1-0 in 8:23.

Segunda Caida: Ophidian getting the heat on Fire Ant. Fire makes the tag to Soldier…not soon after, Soldier taps Ophidian with the CHIKARA Special in 13:09 to tie it up.

Tercera Caida: Huge sequence of dives to start the fall. Back and forth action, Ophidian and Soldier Ant with some CRAZY slams. Fire Ant goes for the same armbar that they won the belts with, Ophidian attempts to turn it into a pin but gets two counts twice, second one breaking the hold. Colony with twin double stomps for two counts. Super Beach Break attempt shoved off as Ophidian kicks him. Sacrament attempt, Fire Ant rolls out! TKO on Ophidian for two. Death Grip into a suplex, Sacrament attempt on Soldier is good! Two count, kickout! Another Sacrament attempt but the Colony fight out…Super Beach Break and Super TKO for the Colony to retain in 23:15!

BDK is here and they have the mic. Shorter one says a war is coming and he’s tired of waiting. Tecnicos come out, Quack and Claudio stand face to face. “Dont insult me, send me the man with the real power!”, pointing at Mantis and Vokoder. They come out…Mantis says he’s sick of them and the threats. He doesn’t even know who they are…it’s Ares! Ares is BDK and Claudio turned on heel! Carpenter Ant, Sara and Daizee all turned as well…Carpenter takes off his hood and reveals himself to be Pinkie Sanchez! Vokoder is Donst! They all do a formation, the lights go out and a Sabu chant starts. All of the faces are laid out around the ring.

The big day is here, readers of CHIKARA Fans – the final day of Young Lions Cup VII! In just a few short hours, a new king of the singles’ land will be named, and it’ll either be The UnStable’s Colin Delaney, or one of this year’s biggest surprise singles competitors, Super Smash Brother Player Dos. That’s not all that’s set for today, though, as we’ll also see the continuation of the traditional Golden Dream match as three trios of former YLC holders will do battle. Add into the mix a four-corner elimination tag match that could see a team gain three points in a matter of one match, a rematch from last night’s showdown between Mascarita Dorada and Pierrothito, the latest battle in the ongoing feud between Claudio Castagnoli and Eddie Kingston…and we’re in for one heck of an afternoon in Philadelphia! Thanks – and more importantly, a very happy birthday – to Whittle for hooking us up yet again today.

Preshow Notes: Really strong attendance today, the line outside longer than for your average Philly show on a Sunday. Might possibly be related to the rave reviews of the CHIKARA product at the Dragon Gate USA show last month. Estimated number is 350-375, not bad at all.

1. Dasher Hatfield, Player Uno & Yellow Dog vs. Tim Donst & Hydra [Sea Donsters] & K.C. “Cloudy” Day: How far Create-a-Wrestler has come in one weekend; the guy’s leading off his own trio now as the unofficial captain as his squad enters to the ring to the sounds of “Tessie”. The old timey king of swing backs up that nickname with pure strength, lifting the man-monster Hydra up and swinging him like a Louisville Slugger at Donst and Cloudy! Dasher maintains dominance by pinning Hydra following his patented Grand Slam. However all doesn’t stay happy for long as after the match, Tim Donst takes out his mounting frustrations by throwing Hydra with a German suplex, then hitting Cloudy with a belly-to-belly and heelin’ it up all over the place.

2. Grizzly Redwood & Brodie Lee [The Roughnecks] vs. Darin Corbin & Ryan Cruz [North Star Express: Another really fun match, though nothing too outstanding. However, the Roughnecks gain their third point and their own title shot as Grizzly comes off the top with the Axehandle Doomsday Device on Cruz to get them the win.

3. 4-Corners Elimination Tag Team Match: UltraMantis Black & Delirious [The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple] vs. Gran Akuma & Icarus [F.I.S.T.] vs. Soldier Ant & Green Ant [The Colony] vs. Halcon Guerrero & Chiva VI: Before we even had time to figure out if this was actually the sixth Chiva, Mantis put the goat away with a Cosmic Disaster to eliminate the random Mexican team. Not too long after, Delirious puts down Green Ant with the Praying Mantis Bomb. This now moves Mantis and Delirious up to two points, meaning that the winner of the fall between the Neo-Solar Temple and Team F.I.S.T. will also gain their third point. Icarus rolled up Ultramantis Black to get the win and F.I.S.T.’s third point as Mantis was distracted by a man in all white. This man delivered a mysterious white box with a note in it; Mantis threw the box into the crowd after the match.

4. Mascarita Dorada vs. Pierrothito: In a very similar match to the one in Easton the night before, Mascarita Dorada regained the honor of his mother by putting away Pierrothito with a wacky lucha pin.


5. Mike Quackenbush & Jorge “Skayde” Rivera vs. Frightmare & Turbo: Turbo fought down the dastardly border guards with the help of his friend in small stature Frightmare, and now they take on the biggest challenge yet – two thirds of the Masters of 1000 Holds! In a complete lucha clinic that saw all four guys push themselves to their limits, Quackenbush pinned Turbo with the Quackendriver. Best match so far tonight!

6. Eddie Kingston vs. Claudio Castagnoli: One heck of a match here, tons of drama like you’d only expect these two to bring in the CHIKARA rings. Kingston hits a Backfist to the Future and a Saito Suplex, Claudio rolls out of the ring to recover. In a move of desperation, Kingston attempts a tope but misses. Claudio rolls back into the ring at the count of nineteen to win via countout.

7. Golden Dream Triple Threat Trios Match: Vin Gerard, STIGMA & Chuck Taylor vs. Jimmy “Equinox” Olsen, Helios & Jigsaw vs. Fire Ant, Hallowicked & Arik Cannon: Remember that hair tonic that Chuck Taylor got from the Big Japan young boy in exchange for the Green Ant costume? Well, it has turned his entire head green, much to the comedic delight of the tecnicos. Reportedly one of the best CHIKARA matches of the year! Fire Ant was launched to the outside by his teammates Wicked and Cannon, shooting him into the barricades so hard that they were bent to a ridiculous degree. Wicked pinned STIGMA with a top rope fisherman’s buster for the win. “This was awesome!”

…Intermission #2?! The Curse of the Golden Dream continues, as the ring was broken for the second time in a row in Golden Dream matches, the last one being when Max Boyer’s face broke the ring back in 2005. To make time for the ring crew, Bryce and Louden did a quick song and dance number.

8. Young Lions Cup ~ Final: Colin Delaney vs. Player Dos: We’ll be sure to get more details when our fans on the board head home, but Player Dos is your new Young Lions Cup champion, defeating Colin Delaney with a very bizarre move off the top rope. “Strangely anticlimactic” finish, though it seems that the Cup didn’t come without a price as Dos may have hurt his left shoulder in the process.

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.


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.

At the end of May at the “Aniversario Yang” show a new member of The Colony debuted. His name? Carpenter Ant, and it was his intrusion in the main event of that show, thwarting the interference of Gran Akuma, that lead to his stablemates Fire and Soldier Ant taking the hairs of both Icarus and Chuck Taylor. Well, with that in mind, Carpenter will not have been expecting his first match in CHIKARA to be against one of the men he assisted, as in the first round of this year’s Young Lions Cup it will be Carpenter Ant vs. Soldier Ant! Under any normal circumstances you would have to consider Carpenter to be a great unknown but it is likely that Soldier is aware of what Carpenter can bring to the table, so the odds are well and truly stacked against the newcomer. He’ll be out to pull off a huge upset while Soldier will be aiming to replicate the success of his long-time tag team partner Fire Ant, even if it comes at the expense of the “new generation” of ants!

Also taking place over YLC weekend will be a 4-corners elimination tag team contest. The participants are yet to be announced but you would have to imagine there’s a strong possibility that several of the eliminated wrestlers from the YLC tournament, both CHIKARA regulars and newcomers, will want a spot in this match. As a few teams have shown in the past, most notably The Colony last November, this type of match can be ideal for any team looking to challenge for Los Campeonatos de Parejas.

The new CHIKARA yearbook is available to preorder here. You can get a standard version or a version signed by the CHIKARA roster.

Shane Hollister Bret Race Colin Delaney

Catching up with the week’s news, it’s only appropriate to update everyone on the entrants into this year’s Young Lions Cup of which there are three new ones! First up is yet another talent from the Midwest – Iowa, to be specific – and a wrestler that’s looking to follow in the footsteps of many of his influences, including Alex Shelley, Chris Sabin and Tyler Black. This man is Shane Hollister, a young man who’s worked extensively in the past for AAW in Berwyn, Illinois, and more recently IWA Mid-South.

Joining Hollister in the Young Lions Cup is quite possibly the greatest of unknowns in this year’s competition. Going by the name Bret “Restle” Race, even CHIKARA has said that they know quite literally nothing about him. They don’t even have a photograph, so this really does bring into question Leonard Chikarason’s research when it comes to YLC participants. He does however have a bare-bones MySpace page, and there are rumours circling that his name may be an anagram for one of CHIKARA’s more interesting characters. Perhaps the subtitle for this website’s message board is truer than first thought…

And finally, a regular face to CHIKARA fans becomes the penultimate participant in this year’s YLC: The UnStable’s Colin Delaney. This is actually Colin’s first Young Lions Cup despite making his CHIKARA debut in 2006 and he’ll be looking to join his stablemates STIGMA and Vin Gerard as well as his “baby brother” Jimmy “Equinox” Olsen as holders of the Young Lions Cup.

In addition to the tournament action over YLC weekend, night 3 of the weekend will see Claudio Castagnoli and Eddie Kingston clash in a continuation of their growing rivalry. Kingston will be coming off a short injury lay-off for this match – an injury forcing him off the upcoming Reading card – and Claudio has shown his willingness to exploit injuries to defeat Kingston in the past (see their March 2007 match), but Kingston has never gone down without a fight and coming off a win over Claudio at “Aniversario Yang” he may feel he has the momentum coming into this one.

Dragon Gate has played host to many dancing characters in the past, most notably “Mr. Egoist” Magnum TOKYO and current WORLD-1 member BxB Hulk. Come July 25th they will be featuring yet another, as “The Funky Pharaoh” Amasis has been added to the CHIKARA offer match. Amasis comes into this match as the least experienced member so far, but he also comes in as one half of the current Campeones de Parejas alongside his Osirian Portal mate Ophidian, making him quite a considerable threat in this match. He will also be across the ring from The Colony, familiar rivals of the Portal (just as they are to F.I.S.T.)

No specifics on finishes yet from the first Japan show, but UltraMantis Black has put the quick results up on his Twitter account. When BJW properly announces all of the results an updated set of results will be posted. CHIKARA has confirmed that 2.0 and The Colony both have earned a point with their victories here. Not only that, but Green Ant apparently donned his regular gear, so the clothing crisis appears to have been overcome.

UPDATE: Some detailed results have been found, with a whole load of pics, which can be viewed here.
