Our buddy Lyle C. Williams, the hardest working and greatest photographer in independent wrestling, has finally gotten around to providing us his photos for the last four CHIKARA events of season eight! He’s been hard at work tinkering these to make them perfect, even skipping out on a CZW show in November (yes, we’re saying it was for us and we’re sticking to it!) in order to bring these to the fans.

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”.

So there’s a rumor flying around that something kinda big happened this past weekend at “Three-Fisted Tales”. Something about guys revealing themselves, forming a new unit, maybe you’ve heard about it yourself. If you’ve been on our message boards since about 7 PM EST on Sunday night, you have to have heard the biggest news to hit CHIKARA in season eight – the Brüderschaft is here, and the war has come.

What is the Brüderschaft, you ask? If you’ve been living under a rock since Sunday, here’s a detailed recap of the events that took place on Sunday evening, provided by our message board’s Player Dos (not to be confused with the current Young Lions Cup holder):

Colony just won, streamers are going everywhere, everyone is standing up. The people leaning on the barricade where I was fell forward as the two BDK dudes push through the audience and get in the ring. Portal and Colony all pretty much sit down on the opposite corner, and they start speaking. “We told you a war is coming, now give us what we want”, (or something along those lines), out comes Green Ant and Carpenter Ant. Out from the back trickles out everyone on the Technico side of things, and 2.0 (they get their own category). Quack and Claudio slide into the ring. BDK men say “Don’t taunt me, you know who we want.” They point up to Mantis and Vokoder who are up in the commentation station. They look at eachother and come down to the ring, accompanied by Delirious. Mantis starts yelling at the BDK guys, and ends in the phrase “I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO YOU ARE!”. The smaller BDK takes off his match to reveal it’s Ares. And with that, BOOM! Claudio nails Quack with an Uppercut. Chaos ensues. Literally, at first a giant brawl broke out. No one had any idea what was going on, I didn’t notice anything odd until I looked up to see Carpenter Ant choking out Green Ant. Looking around, Claudio beating on people, Vokoder choking out Mantis, and Death Haze putting the beat down on people. Haze, Del Rey, Claudio, Carpenter, Vokoder, Ares, and the big BDK guy stand in the ring. In a triangle format. First, Carpenter demasks himself to reveal it’s Pinkie Sanchez, (on a side note, his hair is completely brown, and he had a sick look on his face), then Vokoder reveals himself to be Donst. They all do a salute, the bigger still masked BDK guy then pulls out a remote, and the lights go out. They alliance then fleds the arena, the lights come back on, and everyone (including Chikarason and Louden Noxious) were laid out. They get help to the back, and the show ends.

Since then, Claudio Castagnoli has posted a video message, which you can see here, which states the name of the unit and that there are eight members. Interesting, if you count up the number in the ring from Sunday…

So, as of right now, this is what we know about the Brüderschaft:

  • The name: “Brüderschaft” translates to “brotherhood” in German, so it’s clear that this is a unit that believes in solidarity and a “one for all, all for one” mentality.

  • There are eight members. Currently, we know of Ares, Claudio Castagnoli, Pinkie Sanchez, Tim Donst, Sara del Rey, Daizee Haze and a seventh unnamed member. The eighth member of the unit has yet to be revealed.

  • They currently have the Eye of Tyr. UltraMantis Black handed the Eye to Vökoder before he entered the ring to confront the BDK members, and as we know, Vökoder revealed himself to be a member of the Brüderschaft in Tim Donst.

If nothing else, this has proven to be an amazing twist in the history of CHIKARA. What season nine will hold in 2010 is something that we can’t even predict. It’ll be fascinating to see exactly how this all unfolds. Who will the Brüderschaft target first? Will the tecnicos and rudos of CHIKARA align to stop this massive threat? Where does the Order of the Neo-Solar Temple go from here? While a number of questions were answered on Sunday, a whole lot more were asked.

CHIKARA returns on January 31st to The Arena in South Philadelphia. Is this where the war begins?

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 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!

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.

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?

CHIKARA has started their annual Video Contest, asking users to submit their highlight reels for Season Eight. Get your entries up on YouTube and submitted to CHIKARA by November 21st, and you could win a huge box of prizes including a double-scoop of Los Ice Creams masks!

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!
