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.

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!

It’s been no secret – the biggest feud in CHIKARA in 2009 has been The Colony vs. the Osirian Portal. Two epic title matches, a change of hands in the Campeonatos de Parejas, countless other encounters with each other. However, the newer, younger members of The Colony have yet to get involved with the feud. That all changes in Easton at “Throwing Life’s Instructions Away”, as Carpenter Ant gets his chance to do battle with Amasis. Carpenter has been arguably the biggest surprise of 2009, coming out of nowhere to win the Cibernetico last month in only his fourth match in CHIKARA by tapping out his partner Soldier Ant with the Inverted CHIKARA Special, a move never seen before. Will Carpenter be able to keep the ball rolling and put away a former Campeon in the process?

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.

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.

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!

MainEventMatch

You know the name of tomorrow’s event in West Springfield? Yeah. “Man Makes Plans, and God Laughs”. Well, God’s clearly a regular old Mr. Chuckles this evening because he has chosen to play havoc with this weekend’s cards. It was announced earlier today that Gran Akuma cannot participate due to an injury suffered in training. As a result, the Osirian Portal’s Campeonatos de parejas-related double jeopardy has been halved, as Icarus & Gran Akuma have opted to cash in their 3 points at a later date. This means that there is no longer any ambiguity: Nashua on Sunday will indeed see the rematch from “Revelation X” as the Osirian Portal of Amasis and Ophidian will defend their belts against The Colony’s Fire Ant & Soldier Ant. This marks the ants’ second title shot but their first under standard Campeonatos rules, as their previous match was a one fall contest.

CampeonatosBout

FrightChuck

However, another question comes to mind: What about the West Springfield main event? Well, there’s been some shuffling there too. With Akuma on the shelf, he will be replaced by fellow F.I.S.T. member Chuck Taylor alongside Icarus as they go against Amasis and Ophidian. However, unlike the previous time where Taylor had to replace Akuma, this will not be a tag title contest and will perhaps serve as a sign of things to come for the eventual title match. In addition to that, the singles match in Nashua between Frightmare and Chuck Taylor has been modified, as Icarus will team with Taylor again to face Frightmare and his mentor Hallowicked.

TFIStable

With Chuck now moved into the main event of West Springfield, this leaves an opening in another match on the card, as now Vin Gerard and STIGMA need a third man in their trios match against Lince Dorado, Jimmy “Equinox” Olsen and Mike Quackenbush. With Colin Delaney out of the picture due to his singles match with Dasher Hatfield, there is no natural replacement for Chuck. The mystery man has not been named as of yet as the rudos will be given a partner on the night via the infamous random draw.

We haven’t updated the site in a few days, but the main CHIKARA website was hacked a couple of days ago. The front page redirected to a new website containing a YouTube vide, while every other link was disabled. The video, which can be viewed here, appears to feature the mystery man in white from “Young Lions Cup VII: Night 3″, who states that UltraMantis Black has something that belongs to his family. Mantis must return this thing “or be destroyed”.

Promos from the Young Lions Cup DVDs are up here!

ColonyBadd

CHIKARA’s West Springfield card is finally complete at a whopping 9 matches – that’s, like, one more than any of us can handle – and it’s tag team competition with points at play. CHIKARA has brought in numerous wrestlers known for primarily competing in Canada over the years, ranging from former Young Lions Cup Champion “Canadian Dynamite” Max Boyer to your personal guitar hero Twiggy to the Super Smash Bros. and even Jagged & Shane Matthews, otherwise known as 2.0. Well, 2.0 had better watch out because two new wrestlers from up north will be debuting in West Springfield with the intention to leave all opponents battered and bruised. Hailing from “Somewhere Bad” comes the controversial Badd Boyz, aka Brad & Chad Badd. Which is which is quite irrelevant. The two brothers have built up quite the reputation for taking no nonsense and anyone who has crossed them has received the devastating Badd Move, a move so horrifying that words would not do it justice. They also recently made an impact on the recent Inter-Species Wrestling debut show in Connecticut, beating up UnStable leader Vin Gerard after Gerard attempted to join them as “Vin Badd”. In an entirely unrelated story, the Boyz also revealed that there is a third brother who was kept quiet due to his homosexuality, so perhaps another Badd Boy could turn up in CHIKARA if Brad and Chad make a big impression…

So, now you’ve had all of that, who will they be wrestling? Well, much like Grizzly Redwood will be teaming with Eddie Kingston prior to his and Brodie Lee’s title shot at Los Campeones, Fire Ant will be doing the same, as he will be teaming with his rookie stablemates Green Ant to take on the newcomers. Green Ant teamed with Soldier Ant at Young Lions Cup and failed to get past another notable rookie-bullier, UltraMantis Black, so it’ll be interesting to see whether he’s learned from his mistakes and can form a duo with Fire Ant capable of doing what not many people have done in ISW and that’s take down the Badd Boyz.

Dave Meltzer just reviewed the Dragon Gate USA PPV. Here’s his take on the CHIKARA match.

Hallowicked & Gran Akuma vs. Mike Quackenbush & Jigsaw & Fire Ant & Soldier Ant. It appeared several hundred fans were CHIKARA regulars and wanted to will these guys into a show stealing performance. And this would have stolen most shows. They noted that Hallowicked is usually a face, but he was on the rudo side because of an injury. This is Lucha Libre rules, so you don’t have to tag to enter the ring. These guys were all trained by Quackenbush and work together great. A highly entertaining match that was as crisp as an Arena Mexico main event match. The most impressive thing is the timing here was perfect, and unlike the Dragon Gate guys, these guys aren’t out there working with each other four and five nights a week. Match was entertaining throughout. Amasis in particular showed a lot of charisma. Jigsaw is a great flier. The Ants had their cult popularity. Quackenbush came in as the veteran who seemed to be directing things. Jigsaw pinned Icarus in 17:23 with the Omori driver. ****

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.
