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!

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?

Today sees an addition to the Philadelphia season finale “Three-Fisted Tales”, as Helios steps into the ring with HUSTLE superstar Yujiro Kushida. Kushida, as many may know, is a lucha-oriented flyer with incredible athletic skills. He’ll be looking to use his mix of strength and speed to knock Helios down a peg and give him only his second singles loss in CHIKARA in his two year career (the first against Incognito in the finals of the 2008 Rey de Voladores tournament). While it may not read like it at first, this is a huge matchup and a big chance for both men to prove something to the other’s home promotion.

In other news, it’s official that Eddie Kingston is out for this weekend’s “Cibernetico Incredible” event in Philly, where he was scheduled to take on Big Japan’s Ryuichi Kawakami. Kingston was on the receiving end of some hellacious blows from Sami Callihan this past weekend at CZW’s “Severed Ties”, which left him with a horribly broken nose. CHIKARA reported on Twitter that King is headed under the knife to repair the injury, and as such, will miss out on the much anticipated matchup this weekend with Kawakami. A replacement will be selected for that match, which may or may not be announced ahead of time; King’s status for the November events is still unknown.

Also, some small news for that card: the seventh and final matchup for the event is going to be kept secret by the CHIKARA office until it happens. You’ll be able to see what it is if you hop on this very site on Sunday for our live results!

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!

The other day, we made a promise that we’d get everyone caught up on the recent non-Cibernetico related evolutions on October’s cards in Easton and Philadelphia. Have we ever let you down? Don’t mention the failed launch of that new redesign (we’re still coming out with that, by the way, just you wait!), and let’s just go with the popular answer of “never, you love us!” Onward with the matches:

“An Optimistic View of a Pessimistic World” ~ October 17, 2009 in Easton, PA


While we have what’s likely our main event in the form of the Campeonatos de Parejas defense of The Colony vs. The Roughnecks, the rest of this card has unfolded in quite unique fashion. The most notable additions have seen the Super Smash Bros. competing in singles action, both with quite hefty challenges ahead of them. Young Lions Cup champion Player Dos is going to be defending his title against Incoherence’s crazed mini-demon Frightmare, who has been on quite the tear in singles competition this year. He’ll be looking to prove that his first round bounce in the YLC tournament back in August was a fluke; he already avenged his loss to Brendan Michael Thomas, and taking the cup away from the winner of said tournament would only solidify how much of a fluke that was. Meanwhile, Player Uno has been attempting to prove that he’s not playing games anymore, and has targeted the cream of the crop in CHIKARA, Claudio Castagnoli, to prove that he’s serious. This is arguably Uno’s biggest singles bout to date in CHIKARA, and while he’s had some big singles wins over top Wrestle Factory talent in the past, nothing’s been quite as big as the co-head trainer.

Also on this show, we’re going to see a singles match that’s nearly two years in the making. Jigsaw was set to take on Gran Akuma in Easton in October, a continuation of their rivalry that’s brewed to a head in 2009. However, Akuma’s injury that kept him off of the September shows was re-aggravated while on the comeback trail. When word hit the CHIKARA locker room, a certain rudo that Jigsaw has a lot of past with stepped up to the plate – STIGMA. These two have a long history with one another, dating back to their days as the much beloved ShaneSaw team. They had their problems with one another in late 2007, and since that time, Jigsaw left and returned while the former Shane Storm turned his back on the fans and joined Vin Gerard’s UnStable. These two have a lot of unsettled beef with one another, and it’s long overdue that they step in the ring to do battle one on one.

The hunt for three points never quite ends, and while it’s been some time since UltraMantis Black and Crossbones have made an attempt to add on to the one point that they gained in Japan back in June against Shadow WX and Yuichi Taniguchi, the original Order of the Neo-Solar Temple are back on the ball and looking to shoot to the top. Their opponents on October 17th, the newest Colony duo of Green Ant and Carpenter Ant. Will the new hormigas be able to get the ball rolling towards a title shot against their fellow Colony members, or are Mantis and Bones going to establish dominance while Delirious is off in Japan?

“Cibernetico Incredible” ~ October 18, 2009 in Philadelphia, PA

Many expected this to be one of the big title matches coming up towards the end of the year, and while this may have a set of champions involved if Brodie Lee and Grizzly Redwood can snatch the belts from The Colony the night prior, this match between two rudo duos will not be for the Campeonatos de Parejas. No matter what the results of the defense is in Easton, The Osirian Portal are looking to get the ball rolling towards getting the gold back after dropping the belts in Nashua last month, and there’d be no better way to start that off than to get their first point against the Roughnecks.

Two more duos are also looking to grab up some valuable points this weekend, and they’re both quite new to the CHIKARA scene. The Badd Boys have have been flirting with the company for a while – unexpectedly showing up on one of the Big Japan dojo events hosted while CHIKARA was overseas in June – and finally made their debut in West Springfield last month when they put away Fire Ant and Green Ant. This time, the challenge is a bit different; the red hot Dasher Hatfield has been knocking wins out of the park since his debut. His search for a partner ended when a young man by the name of Sugar Dunkerton put his name out there to help Dasher on his quest for three points. It’ll be interesting to see what Dunkerton brings to the table in Philly, as this will be his CHIKARA debut.

One small change to a previously announced match – Atsuko Emoto has been pulled from the ladies’ tag in Philly and replaced with Bullfight Sora, a Big Japan women’s wrestler who has incredible similarities to Emoto. Not much to say, really.

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 cry for competition has been answered – both Daizee Haze and Sara del Rey have made recent statements via CHIKARAPro.com blogs about how they feel they have been slighted for being a step above everyone else in CHIKARA. In response, CHIKARA officials called up their friends at Big Japan, and asked them for some recommendations for some ladies from Japan that can bring the level of competition that Haze and Del Rey have demanded. Our match, set for “Cibernetico Incredible” on October 18th, is Sara and CHIKARA alum La Malcriada (last seen way back at the final night of King of Trios 2007) squaring off against Daizee Haze and NEO’s Atsuko Emoto. Emoto may be better known to some diehard Joshi followers as “Bullfight Sora”, WAVE’s deadly bovine character. This match should be incredibly exciting for fans of women’s wrestling, as it’s a chance for two lesser known Japanese talents to break out in the States.

UltraMantis Black blogs about the recent happenings involving the Eye of Tyr, and the future of the Neo-Solar Temple’s relations with both Delirious and Crossbones.

Well! We take a couple of days off after the exhausting New England weekend, and the CHIKARA offices don’t cut us any slack. This update alone will hype up two new matches, a blog, a new Podcast and some more little nuggets of info. Let’s not waste time; here come the updates!

First off – new champs! The Colony have won the Campeonatos de Parejas in Nashua on Sunday, defeating the Osirian Portal in two straight falls. Wasting no time, their first defense has been signed and it’s the main event of Easton’s “An Optimistic View of a Pessimistic World” as Fire Ant and Soldier Ant square off against the only currently healthy duo with three points, The Roughnecks of Brodie Lee and Grizzly Redwood. While the Roughnecks have likely been preparing for three falls with the Portal, the ants are looking to prove that they’re not going to be one-and-done like the last tecnico team to hold the belts, the Super Smash Bros. Rumor is that, by the time you read this, the Roughnecks will have some words for the Colony in a Podcast Special Update. We’ll have that video for you here tomorrow!

While Brodie and the Grizz are going to be prepping for three falls of action in Easton, their fellow Roughneck Eddie Kingston is getting himself ready for the following night, where he’ll be taking on Big Japan’s newest rookie sensation Ryuichi Kawakami! Making his debut in December of 2008, Kawakami, a trainee of current Big Japan tag champ (and CHIKARA alum) Daisuke Sekimoto, brings a lot to the table despite being relatively new to the ring. A hype video displaying his sheer power and strength is right on the other side of this link – check it out now.

Sara del Rey has written a very interesting blog here, voicing her recent frustrations with the competition she’s been given recently. Daizee Haze recently voiced similar complaints, so perhaps something is in store for these two down the road.

The latest edition of the Podcast-a-Go-Go, featuring King of Trios 2009 action such as the Soul Touchaz vs. the UnStable and the F1RST Family vs. F.I.S.T., can be seen here

See you tomorrow with more on the latest in CHIKARA!

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!

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!
