CHIKARA International Invaders Weekend 2007: Night 2
1. Olsen Twins vs. Jigsaw & Shane Storm - *** (Solid formula tag match)
2. Brodie Lee vs. Tim Donst - **1/2 (Donst is so awesome. Fun squash)
3. UltraMantis Black vs. Soldier Ant - **1/2 (Fine little match here)
4. Mitch Ryder vs. Hallowicked - ** (Best Mitch Ryder match I've ever seen...that's not saying alot BTW)
5. Claudio Castagnoli vs. PAC - ****1/4 (Loved this SO much. Buy the DVD for it)
6. Chris Hero vs. Brute Issei - *** (Hero is very awesome in CHIKARA, shame he isn't in ROH. Brute was quite bad, but Hero carried him well. Shame about Brute retiring a week ago, he had some potential)
7. Shayne Hawke vs. Lince Dorado - Didn't watch (I heard it sucked, and couldn't be bothered to watch it at the time)
8. Akira Raijin vs. Mike Quackenbush - *** (Raijin was as bland as hell, Quack was his usual awesome self)
9. F.I.S.T. vs. Las Chivas - **3/4 (Las Chivas were not great, the match was quite fun)
10. Chuck Taylor vs. Ricochet - ***1/2 (Very good match, Ricochet is really improving)
Overall thoughts: I was dissapointed here, but I had fucking high expectations. I brought this promarily for CC/PAC, and man was that awesome. So great. All the 'Invaders' matches (except PAC's) dissapointed me, the Japanese duo really weren't very good. Still, the show was fun, and CLAUDIO VS PAC~!
Overall Score: 7/10.
CHIKARA Showdown in Crisisland
1. Los Ice Creams vs. Olsen Twins - *** (Usual good stuff)
2. Ophidian vs. Player Uno - ** (Ophidian is as generic as hell, yay for Uno though)
3. Max Boyer & F.I.S.T. vs. The Colony - ***1/4 (Really good match)
4. Claudio Castagnoli vs. Sicodelico Jr. - *** (Sicodelivco is so bland. CC carried him to a good match though)
5. Shayne Hawke & 2.0 vs. Mike Quackenbush, Jigsaw & Shane Storm - ***1/4_***1/2 (Quack was ON FIRE here. Very good match)
6. Eddie Kingston vs. Tim Donst - ***1/4_***1/2 (Easily my fav King match ever. Man this was good. Donst is awesome, his comebacks were great)
7. Order Of The Neo-Solar Temple vs. Hallowicked, Cheech & Cloudy - ***1/2 (The Order CAN GO! Great match)
8. Chris Hero vs. Lince Dorado - ***1/4 (Hero carried Lince to a good match)
Overall thoughts: What a solid show. nothing excellent, but everything was solid and fun. Recommendation.
Overall score: 8/10.
