Chuck Taylor Video

Just a couple videos:

This is a video of a CHIKARA match between The Colony (Fire Ant, Soldier Ant, and Worker Ant) and F.I.S.T. (Gran Akuma, Chuck Taylor, and Icarus). The particular segment is one of the funniest things I have seen in a wrestling ring.  There are couple more videos of Chuck Taylor, all of which I recommend. Keep it here soon for my best of CHIKARA finishers.

This one is the same idea just with Worker Ant and everyone gets into the act.

Below are the result of the first night of CHIKARA‘s King of Trios. I will be posting pictures as soon as I upload them.

The First Family (Darin Corbin, Arik Cannon, and Ryan Cruz) defeated Team Epic War (Tony Kozina, Austin Aries, and Ryan Drago)

The Osirian Portal (Amasis, Escorpion Egipico, and Ophidian) defeated Team Pro Wrestling Guerilla (Nick Jackson, Matt Jackson, and El Generico)

Team Uppercut (Claudio Castagnoli, Dave Taylor, and Bryan Danielson) defeated The Roughnecks (Brodie Lee, Eddie Kingston, and Grizzly Redwood)

Da Soul Touchaz (Willie Richardson, Trauma, and Marshe Rockett) defeated Team CZW (Beef Wellington, Pinkie Sanchez, and Greg Excellent)

F.I.S.T (Gran Akuma, Chuck Taylor, and Icarus) defeated The Death Match Kings (Necro Butcher, Toby Klein, and Brain Damage)

The Future is Now (Equinox, Helios, and Lince Dorado) defeates Team DDT (Kota Ibushi, KUDO, and Michael Nakazawa)

The Masters of a Thousand Holds (Mike Quackenbush, Jorge “Skayde” Rivera, and Johnny Saint) defeated Incoherence (Frightmare, Hallowicked, and Delirious)

The Unstable (Vin Gerard, STIGMA, and Colin Delaney) defeated The Cold Front (Al Snow, Glacier, and D’Lo Brown [took Iceberg’s place])

My thoughts:

I went 2 for 8 on my predictions. Not my best work, but it was entertaining none the less. The event was incredible to say the least. I feel like I almost have to break it down.

The F1rst Family vs Team Epic War

I liked the turmoil on Epic War between Drago and Aries. This was a great opening match not much else needs to be said.

The Osirian Portal vs Team PWG

Four words. I LOVE EL GENERICO. He stole the show, but the other wrestlers were able to keep up.

Team Uppercut vs The Roughnecks

This was one of the best matches of the night. Bryan Danielson’s antics in messing with Grizzly Redwood was sheer genius. Redwood was the whipping boy in the end as Claudio Castagnoli swung him in a circle a full 100 times , which the led to Danielson using the Cattle Mutilation for the victory.

Da Soul Touchaz vs Team CZW

The funniest match of the night. I only wish Team CZW advanced because their antics are absolutely priceless. Between that and big Willie flying over the top rope, I was in heaven.

F.I.S.T. vs The Death Match Kings

Necro Butcher is the definition of a man’s man. The Kings just beat up anyone they saw. The show down between Necro and Akuma was epic to say the least.

The Future is Now vs Team DDT

This was a good match. I didn’t care for how it ended but that was the worst part.

The Masters of a Thousand Holds vs Incoherence

This was one of my least favorite matches. The match was severely one sided and there wasn’t a point where Incoherence had anything close to control. In a more pressing note, Mike Quackenbush had a hard landing on concrete and did not look good from that point on. Hopefully, he is ok.

The Unstable vs The Cold Front

I was shocked when they said Iceberg couldn’t make it to the event. They announced replacements ranging from Leif Cassidy to The Amazing Red. Then D’Lo Brown came out and my heart sank into my stomach. I watched as two of my childhood heroes, D’Lo Brown and Al Snow, wrestled valiantly. The word “glorious” doesn’t even begin to explain it.

For those who are curious, The matches for tonight are as follows:

The F1rst Family vs F.I.S.T.

The Osirian Portal vs The Future is Now

Team Uppercut vs The Masters of a Thousand Holds

Da Soul Touchaz vs The Unstable
