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.

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.

ssbnst

Two teams looking to start from scratch in the CHIKARA tag scene will clash in Philadelphia, as the Super Smash Bros. of Player Uno and Player Dos will tackle the Order of the Neo-Solar Temple’s UltraMantis Black and Crossbones. The former failed to win a 4-way tag match on the last show in Philadelphia while the Order fell in the 2009 King of Trios tag team gauntlet match. One factor that must be considered is Delirious, who the Order kidnapped last month and no word on his status has been given since. Will Delirious make his presence felt in Philly? And regardless of that, will his Incoherence buddies Hallowicked and Frightmare be looking to gain some vengeance on Mantis and Crossbones for their sneak attack in Philly?

Tags: , , , , , , , ,



The latest match for Easton’s “Aniversario Yin” has been confirmed, and it’s quite the special atomico – in their last match before their huge mask vs. hair match, Fire Ant and Soldier Ant align with former Campeones de Parejas The Super Smash Bros. to square off against The Osirian Portal and returning beloved rudos Los Ice Creams. There’s a ton of history here between these squads: the Osirian Portal were the team that snuck the belts away from the Super Smash Bros. last October at second night of “The Global Gauntlet”; the Colony were the team that came inches away from taking those belts for themselves back at “Revelation X” in January. Also notable is Player Dos’ recent success in last month’s Atomico match, defeating Buck Hawke at “Behind the 8 Ball”. Will he fly high and take home the win for the tecnicos? Find out on May 23rd when Aniversario Weekend 2009 takes off!

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!

Just rounded up some of the news from the last few days, Leonard F. Chikarason’s announcement regarding CHIKARA entrants into the 2009 King of Trios tournament has been followed by the addition of said matches to the first three cards of the year.

kotqualifier1

First, on 1/25 the reunited Fabulous Three of Mitch Ryder, Larry Sweeney & Buck Hawke will take on a trio of video game grapplers now collectively known as the Saturday Night Slam Masters, otherwise known as the Super Smash Bros. (Player Uno & Player Dos) & Create-A-Wrestler. While the Fabulous Three have a fair amount of experience as a trio, having participated in last year’s tournament and making it to night 3, the Slam Masters have no matches under their belt as a three-man team, although Uno has wrestled considerably in standard tag matches alongside both Dos and CAW.

kotqualifier2

Next, CHIKARA’s return to Reading on 2/20 will see another chapter in the long and competitive rivalry between F.I.S.T. and The Colony, as all three men of both units will clash with only one team making it to CHIKARA’s biggest tournament of the year. The grudge really began right at the start of 2008 when Fire & Soldier defeated Icarus & Akuma in Hellertown, but in direct trios matches they are deadlocked at one victory apiece. This will be the rubber match with huge consequences, as many consider them to be the top two groups in the promotion.

kotqualifier3

Finally, the following night in Easton, two untested trios will clash to earn a spot in King of Trios. December saw the beginning of the Brodie Lee/Grizzly Redwood team, while November saw Brodie and Eddie Kingston offering one another advice ahead of big singles matches against the likes of Drake Younger and Hallowicked. As a result, those three men will face a new incarnation of the Order of the Neo-Solar Temple. Since Hydra and Tim Donst left the group UltraMantis Black and Crossbones have been unable to find a third member, but now they may just have found one as they will be teaming with Midwest independent sensation “The New Horror” Sami Callihan, a man certainly wild enough to prove valuable in matches against bruisers such as Brodie and Kingston.

Apologies for the lack of updates as of late, but here’s a bumper edition to hopefully make up for lost time! Hopefully that RIDICULOUS other site has given you more than enough entertainment in the meantime.

The Easton card will see a trios explosion as all three members of F.I.S.T. – Gran Akuma, Icarus and Chuck Taylor - will unite to face Ultimo Breakfast and the former Campeones de Parejas, the Super Smash Bros. of Player Uno and Player Dos. While F.I.S.T. have the trios experience, the tecnico squad are deceptively familiar with each other, considering Player Uno’s occasional team in the past with Breakfast’s alter-ego Create-A-Wrestler. This will also be Ultimo’s second shot at F.I.S.T. this year, as he was on the losing end of a trios match over Young Lions Cup weekend (with Sami Callihan and Steve Weiner as his partners).

Also added to Easton is a clash of two of CHIKARA’s more popular duos, as Jagged and Shane Matthews, aka 2.0, will wrestle the newly-surfed up KC “Cloudy” Day and Cheech Hernandez. Both teams clashed last month in Wallingford on opposite sides of an atomico match, but this time they will get their chance in a good old fashion battle for the points! This will also mark the return of 2.0 to the Pennsylvania area for the first time since a loss to Los Ice Creams last August, following appearances this year in Wallingford, Framingham and even Oberhausen, Germany.

With the earlier announcement of a Fire Ant vs. Escorpion Egipcio match, it seems only natural that Easton will see another Colony vs. Osirian Portal singles match, as Soldier Ant will have his crosshair firmly set on one half of the Campeones de Parejas, the venemous and vile Ophidian. Considering Ophidian’s recent attempts to goad the Colony into making some serious mistakes via the CHIKARAPro.com blog, Soldier will be attempting to make the serpentine grappler eat his words,

As confirmed in a video update on the CHIKARA Podcast-A-Go-Go, “Lightning” Mike Quackenbush will attempt to make his ninth successful defense of the NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Title in Easton as he will face one half of the Fabulous Two and a man on quite the singles winning streak, “Superstar” Buck Hawke. These two have clashed a number of times in the past, most notably a singles contest on night 3 of the 2007 Young Lions Cup, which Quackenbush won with the Quackendriver II. Hawke will be hoping for a different result this time around when there’s championship gold on the line.

Speaking of Quackenbush, he will also be looking to settle a good old fashion grudge as well as defend a title, as he will team with his student Tim Donst in Philly to wrestle two-thirds of the UnStable, STIGMA and Colin Delaney. In September Donst and Quackenbush fought a losing battle against Vin Gerard and STIGMA in a match that saw the return of Jigsaw to save the sekigun members, and one has to wonder what role “The Wrestling Enigma” will play following the events of the Wallingford show where Quackenbush gave Jigsaw his old mask back, much to Jigsaw’s confusion.

Another grudge will play out again in Philly, as the former Campeones de Parejas, the Super Smash Bros., will look to gain a degree of revenge on those who ended that reign in record time, as Uno and Dos will face the Osirian Portal’s Ophidian and new member Escorpion Egipcio (replacing the injured Amasis). Following the title loss to Amasis and Ophidian it will be interesting to see how the Super Smash Bros. react to this match, and whether Uno will take the risk of wearing his trademark game-pad shorts again!

Philly will also be treated to a big Young Lions Cup title match, as Vin Gerard will defend the cup against a man who defeated him a couple of months ago, that being Jimmy Olsen, aka the second Equinox. Olsen is coming off some major momentum following the aforementioned win over Gerard and also a victory in the Torneo Cibernetico, but Gerard is also coming off his third successive title defence, a win over Worker Ant in Wallingford, so this one could go either way. As a note of almost no interest, victory here would put Gerard level with Hallowicked (the first champion) and Jigsaw and one behind the all-time leader Max Boyer on the list of most prolific Young Lions Cup champions.

Also debuting over the season finale weekend will be the popular Ring of Honor wrestling lumberjack Grizzly Redwood, who will be wrestling on the Philadelphia card against CHIKARA veteran “The Nightmare Warrior” Hallowicked. Bearing a slight resemblance to ROH Wrestling Academy graduate Mitch Franklin, Redwood will aim to follow in the footsteps of other ROH students such as Bobby Dempsey, Pelle Primeau, Rhett Titus, Matt Turner and Anthony Franco by impressing the CHIKARA faithful and earning a regular roster spot, although to do that he will have to take down a member of the inaugural Chikara Wrestle Factory class. There has been no word on whether or not Redwood will be in attendance for the Friday card.

Aaaaand finally, a couple of new blogs have made it up onto the CHIKARAPro.com blog. As mentioned above, Ophidian has made a recent post goading Fire Ant and Soldier Ant. With the ants right in line for a shot at Amasis and Ophidian’s Campeonatos de Parejas but unable to take that shot until Amasis has recovered from his torn ankle ligaments, Ophidian has let everyone know that 2.0 will not be on the Philadelphia card unless someone answers their open challenge, and with Fire and Soldier currently without matches for that show it appears to be a clear attempt to get the Colony to put their six points at risk. Whether this proves to be a successful session of mind games is yet to be seen. Prior to that, STIGMA had also posted an entry to preview the tag team match on the Philadelphia show, mocking Quackenbush for his poor run of form as of late against the UnStable. He also demanded their next match be a tag team match because another rudo victory would at least help him advance towards a tag team title shot.

In today’s sole match update – perhaps one of two, if a Cibernetico video update is to follow – a potentially wildly entertaining 8-man tag team match has been added to the Wallingford show, as Los Ice Creams will team with Jagged & Shane Matthews, otherwise known as 2.0, to take on the popular Super Smash Bros., Cheech & Cloudy. There are a number of interesting little facts to back up this match. The most obvious is that this will follow the Super Smash Bros. vs. 2.0 match in Framingham the night before, meaning the loser of that first match may get a shot at revenge in Wallingford. Also of note is that on CHIKARA’s last show in Wallingford, Aniversarioct, Cheech & Cloudy defeated the Super Smash Bros., while over a year ago Los Ice Creams defeated 2.0 at Maximum Overdraft, so it’s quite possible that there may still be some issues internally on both sides. Either way, a fun time should be had by all.
