    Re: The New Deluxe CHIKARA Thread

    Dismiss my previous hunch, because Pieces Of Hate have been added to the four corner elimination match. Updated card with just over a week to go:

    The Spectral Envoy vs. Die Bruderschaft des Kreuzes
    Archibald Peck vs. Jimmy Jacobs
    The Batiri vs. Sinn Bodhi & his Odditorium
    Four Corner Elimination Tag Team Match: Scott Parker and Shane Matthews vs. 17 and deviANT vs. Jigsaw and The Shard vs. ???
    Grand Championship Match: Eddie Kingston © vs. Icarus

    Two more matches plus the last participants of the tag match to be added.

    The title and theme song pretty much say it all. Fun and cool little video.

    Former Grand Champion Eddie Kingston will face kinda leader of The Flood Jimmy Jacobs the evening of June 21st at Diamonds are Forever. Very unexpected and interesting first post-title reign match for Kingston. The Batiri will be in tag action against Sinn Bodhi's Odditorium of Oliver Grimsly & Qefka the Quiet that evening as well.

    As for the other event that day, Quantum of Solace, so far we have The Spectral Envoy taking on The Wrecking Crew (Max Smashmaster/Blaster McMassive/Oleg the Usurper) and DeviANT vs Worker Ant!

    Quantum Of Solace Results

    Diamonds Are Forever Results

    And here's the card for today's show (Goldfinger), although considering how many changes were made to the previous two shows, expect some here too

    Of course, with Max Smashmaster missing the previous night, we can only assume there will be some more card shuffling.

    So 3 weeks from now, I attend my first CHIKARA event in Cardiff. Hype.

    Card so far is:

    Campeonatos de Parejas: The Devastation Corporation vs N_R_G

    COTI: Battle Hive (Amasis & Fire Ant) vs. Nightmare Warriors (Participants unknown)

    Not overly enthused by the championship match. DevCorp are cool, but NRG are green & feel like 3.0 lite. COTI match could be awesome though, the Nightmare Warriors team will be two from Hallowicked, Frightmare, Silver Ant & Blind Rage. Will be happy with any combo not involving Blind Rage tbh.

    EDIT: just dig some digging, it's Frightmare & Blind Rage. 3 out of 4 ain't bad I guess.

    4 way elimination match featuring Los Ice Creams, Jaka & Oleg The Usurper, The United Nations, and most excitingly, The Gentlemen's Club of Chuck Taylor & Drew Gulak .

    So excited for that last team.

    I didn't seem to get much traction from the VIP crowd... :lol:

    What are some shows anyone would recommend for someone looking to check out Chikara: overall and from this year? What's a good jumping off point?
     
  14. The Linebacker

    The Linebacker [Blank Space]

    I'll do it in reverse order. Best starting off point would be either:

    "You Only Live Twice" from May 2014. CHIKARA's return following a years hiatus, pretty much as fresh a starting point as you could ask for.

    or

    "A New Start" from January 2015. The season 15 premiere, the beginning of the "Challenge Of The Immortals", and the first CHIKARA show since the end of the Flood angle, and effectively the whole takeover angle.

    As far as good shows in general to watch, King Of Trios 2012 is pretty much the best 3 day event in CHIKARA history, so all of those are a good shout. "Hiding In Plain Sight" from 2010 is fantastic top to bottom & features possibly the best match in CHIKARA history (Daniel Bryan & Cesaro vs. Mike Quackenbush & Jigsaw). In fact, look for "High Noon" too, as that has the other contender for best CHIKARA match ever (Mike Quackenbush vs. Eddie Kingston), plus it has the historic factor of being the first iPPV, the crowning of their first Grand Champion, the end of the BDK angle & some great action inbetween.

    From this year, "Pier Pressure" is the only one I can recommend because it's the only CHIKARA show I've seen since "You Only Live Twice". Plus, you have the added bonus of me popping up in the audience throughout, what more could you ask for?

    Re: The New Deluxe CHIKARA Chatter & Discussion Thread

    Excellent reply. I've already started downloading "A New Start" as it sounds like a great springboard into the current season. I heard some great things from the match between Eddie Kingston and the former Kid Cyclone. I might download "You Only Live Twice" as well and watch both to get into the product, if you recommend it? How much of the stories from before the "shut down" are brought up?

    "In Plain Sight" has a match with Daniel Bryan and Cesaro on the same team? Count me in please. I'll definitely have to tweet and post my thoughts as I experience the sensation known as Chikara Pro. Especially this "King of Trios." I've always felt Six-Man tags we're underrated and there could be revival of them again. If you say it's the best three nights of Chikara, I'm all over it. Thank you.

    I'll have to check out "Pier Pressure" to see our English Dave in action! Once I catch it, I'll leave comments on your article.
