THE BEST OF CHIKARA
Shane Storm & Jigsaw & Quackenbush vs Gran Akauma & Icarus & Castagnoli - ****
Quack kicks out of a Top Rope Uppercut/Powerbomb/Lungblower combo?! Hmmm...still very good.
Shane Storm vs Chris Hero - ***3/4
Best Storm match I've ever seen. Everything was smooth, and the crowd was way into this.
Milano Collection AT & Skayde vs The Kings of Wrestling - ****
This was the match that got me into the Kings of Wrestling. Great execution and some nice comedy spots, too.
Allison Danger, Ranmaru & Rain vs Daizee Haize & Mickie & Sumie Saki - **1/2
Not bad. Mickie was really good here.
Jigsaw vs Hallowicked - ***3/4
I loved this. This is what Chikara is all about: watching young, talented guys develop into stars.
Angel de Fuego & Equinox & The Colony vs Los Ice Creams & Crossbones & Rorschach - ***1/4
The North Star Express vs The Kings of Wrestling - ***3/4
Another really good match where the Kings make a weaker team look like a real threat.
Mike Quackenbush vs Claudio Castagnoli - ***1/2
This is my least favorite of all their encounters that I've seen. That said, it was still awesome.
Eddie Kingston vs Larry Sweeney - ***1/2
You could feel the hate between these guys. Some of the strikes looked so stiff, especially considering some of the matches I had just watched. This is the puroresu side of Chikara, and it was very important to include this on the DVD.
DVD OVERALL: ****
Great price. Great energy. Great matches. Anything else? What's that? You get a trading card?!
(I got Hallowicked)
