Funny how I pump out the reviews WAY slower than my ability to watch all the shows from this year. Anyways...
A mixed bag here, but in a fine way. You get matches that you kind of expected to be pretty good, then end up being full on comedy like with UMB vs Cabana. A match you think would absolutely suck then end up being wildly fun - Kobald vs Stevens. An encounter you thought would turn out solid, but ended up being disappointing, Del Rey vs Saturyne. And a match that involves wrestlers whom I love, but still blows me away at how good it really was in Ophidian vs Archibald Peck. Rest goes unnamed since they were about what I expected from them. 3.0 vs Throwbacks was the comedy/wrestling blend we all knew it would be, Taylor vs Akuma was pretty straightforward although slightly bland, the atomicos rocked our socks off again just like the night prior (only the Reading one was a touch better) and a main event that was a good brawl for only peaking at 10 minutes in. Collectively another all around success by Chikara.
Order of Chikara shows I've reviewed "so far":
1) A Death Worse Than Fate
2) Caught In The Spider's Den
3) The Thirteenth Hat
Clearly my list for the Chikara shows will take shape upon the more reviews I pump out on here.
You suck the blood of the afflicted.Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality.
