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 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.

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.

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.

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.

A unique staple of CHIKARA history – the Incredibles tag match – sees its return in Easton as four teams split up and face off in an atomico that should see insane action on all sides! Former Campeones de Parejas the Super Smash Bros., The UnStable, The Fabulous Two and The Sea Donsters will all be forced to square off against one another. One team sees Player Dos, “Marvelous” Mitch Ryder, and two men that have had their differences recently, STIGMA andTim Donst. The other side shall see, obviously, Player Uno, “The Red Romeo” Buck Hawke, Vin Gerard and Hydra. A fantastic addition to what looks to be one of the more exciting cards in recent CHIKARA memory!

There are a few historical notes regarding these matches. Possibly the most notable case of an Incredibles match causing a team to fall apart would be ShaneSaw, as Jigsaw and Hydra defeated UltraMantis Black and Shane Storm in late 2007 and the two never teamed again after that. On the other side of the coin, just last year in Streamwood the Super Smash Bros. clashed in a similar 8-man tag and the following night in Ohio they become Los Campeones, proving that the match can either strengthen or weaken a pairing. There’s also the potential for “civil war”, as the teams comprise of both tecnicos and rudos. While there are no real outstanding examples of this in CHIKARA (outside of Lince Dorado in last year’s Cibernetico), you’d have to imagine Tim Donst and STIGMA, who have been great rivals since STIGMA injured Donst in January, will have a hard time getting along.

As we move away from King of Trios, it’s only right that this particular news update opens with the above picture taken just moments after F.I.S.T. of Gran Akuma, Icarus and Chuck Taylor won the 2009 King of Trios tournament. Credit goes to CHIKARAFans friend and Hollywood sensation Lyle C. Williams!

4corners

The first match has been added to the return to the Arena in Philadelphia next month and will see a 4-Way Elimination Match between 2 Canadian teams, 3 Americans and a STIGMA. Last night at King of Trios Player Dos had the biggest match of his career as he fell in a fast-paced battle to DDT sensation Kota Ibushi in the final of the 2009 Rey de Voladores tournament. However, in April it will be back to tag action for Dos as he teams once again with Player Uno as the Super Smash Bros. The two will come into the shows with some momentum after impressive non-tournament showings this past weekend and will surely be looking towards gaining enough points to contend for Los Campeonatos, titles they once held. However, they will have to contend with a number of serious challengers.

Cheech & Cloudy failed to leave the Tag Gauntlet last night with any points but have challenged for the tag belts numerous times in the past and they will not be willing to go down without a fight. Similarly resiliant are Colin Delaney and STIGMA of the UnStable, who had an impressive run alongside Vin Gerard in King of Trios before falling in the semi-finals. This pairing is the only one of the four to have participated in the previous 4-way back in November. They failed to win in that particular match and know that a repeat performance will not go down well with Gerard.

Wrapping up the lineup is the popular 2.0 combo of Jagged and Shane Matthews, returning to CHIKARA once again. While extremely charismatic and huge favourites of the CHIKARA faithful, the win/loss record of the Canadian duo is not the best as they have never come close to qualifying for a title shot. Will this be more of the same or will they shock the world and – as they hypothetically could do – attain the 3 points they need to challenge the Portal? All of these questions will be answered on April 26!

In just eight short days, the King of Trios 2009 tournament begins with a night of eight first round matches that’s sure to send half the field back home from Philadelphia. After two weeks of revelations, we now know the final card for the first night of King of Trios, and the competition that all sixteen teams stand to face on March 27th as the biggest tournament in CHIKARA comes around one more time.



First up is somewhat of a grudge match from the final night of last year’s King of Trios tournament, as Vin Gerard leads the UnStable up against the legend he defeated in a non-tournament four-way elimination match, Glacier and his squad of the Cold Front. Glacier’s certainly looking to get his hands on Vin after their showdown from last year, and what sweeter revenge could there possibly be than to knock out one of the heavy favorites heading into the big weekend.



The final first round match is a somewhat strange battle between two tecnico squads, as the all-star Masters of a Thousand Holds team – consisting of Mike Quackenbush, Jorge “Skayde” Rivera and Johnny Saint – takes on another one of the likely favorite candidates to take home Trios gold in Incoherence. While Delirious and Hallowicked are former Campeones de Parejas and Frightmare certainly has a special bond with Wicked, the playing field here is somewhat even as both teams have never competed together in trios action.

With a weekend of domination in trios action, putting away Mike Quackenbush, Jigsaw and Tim Donst at “If the Airplane is Snowed In…” and then Create-a-Wrestler and the Sea Donsters the next night at “Motive, Means, Opportunity”, The UnStable proved themselves more than worthy of entering into the King of Trios tournament. After stating their case on a Podcast Special Update and making some calls into the higher-ups in the CHIKARA offices, Vin Gerard and his cronies have gotten their needs met and will be joining fifteen other teams to get their chance at King of Trios glory. With rivals The Colony out of the way thanks to Team F.I.S.T., who will stand in the UnStable’s way?
