There was no real explanation for the Trident, except that London is bat shit crazy. Watching him in person is scary especially when he wrestles, he just seems like hes one move away from really hurting himself. At the 100th show vs Ryan he botched a bunch of moves, when he jumped into the crowd I thought he was dead. He's a really nice guy though, stays after the show taking pictures and talking to fans, he's just a tad eccentric.

Does anyone have or know of any in depth reviews for the King of Trios 2009 nights 2 and 3? Specifically, any with star ratings or comparisons to nights 1 and 3? I'm on the fence about ordering this tournament. Thanks!

I actually like the way Styling and Profiling look on paper. I figure Ric Flair's first appearance makes this a must see show to start. But it also has some fun matches of some of the biggest fueds in 2009. Dragon/Bison, Wolves + Hero vs. Steenerico + Dempsey, AOTF vs Black/Lynn. Then you got some fun matchups in Nigel vs Albright, and Briscoe vs Roddy. I like it on paper. I'm not sure how well everything came out, but looks good to me.

So I'm able to buy some early ROH vhs tapes, and I'm wondering what's worth the money.

I have The Era of Honor Begins, Bloodlust, Best of the Rottweilers, and Best of Spanky on dvd, so I'm looking for stuff that's not on those.

There's ROH VHS tapes? Didn't even know they ever made any VHS's

King of Trios 2009 Night 2

1. Austin Aries vs. Matt Jackson vs. Player Dos vs. Fire Ant ***3/4
2. F1rst Family (Arik Cannon, Darin Corbin & Ryan Cruz) vs. F.I.S.T. ***1/2
3. The Submission Squad vs. Davey Vega & Gary The Barn Owl *(Wasn't terrible but it didn't bring anything to the table and it's surrounded by excellent matches so it sticks out worse than if it was on a recent ROH show. Ziiing!)
4. Osirian Portal vs. The Future Is Now (Helios, Equinox & Lince Dorado) ***
5. El Generico vs. Nick Jackson vs. Jigsaw vs. Kota Ibushi *****
6. The UnStable vs. Da Soul Touchaz ***1/2
7. Twiggy vs. Player Uno ***
8. Team Uppercut (Claudio Castagnoli, Dave Taylor & Bryan Danielson) vs. Masters Of A Thousand Holds (Jorge Rivera, Johnny Saint & Mike Quackenbush) ****1/4

King of Trios 2009 Night 3

1. The UnStable vs. Team Uppercut (Claudio Castagnoli, Bryan Daneilson & Dave Taylor) ***1/2
2. F.I.S.T. vs. The Future Is Now (Helios, Equinox & Lince Dorado) ***3/4
3. Arik Cannon vs. El Generico ****
4. Tag Team Gauntlet ***
5. Kudo, Michael Kakazawa & The Osirian Portal vs. The Colony & The North Star Express ***3/4
6. Austin Aries vs. Eddie Kingston ***1/2
7. Player Dos vs. Kota Ibushi *****
8. F.I.S.T. vs. Team Uppercut ***1/2

Night 1 is the weakest of the three, but it still holds up if it were placed next to any other individual indy show.

How many matches have you given ***** to, cause either you are a snowflake fairy, which I doubt, or this weekend was legendary.

A wrestling match is like a balanced diet. The basics are carbs, keeping you going. Armdrags may not be the highlight, but they're key to the development. Dairy is emotion and crowd interaction, like bones, they strengthen the match, and in there absense, the it will fall apart. Meat is moves like suplexes and finishers. They’re cool, but if you rely on them you’d be unhealthy, and the matches unwatchable. Mat work is fruits and vegetables. We may not like them, but some is sweet chain wrestling. Last is spots and indy MoVEz~!, your sugars and fats. You can't just eat chocolate, and thus you need to do more than flips and head drops to get above ****.

Kaiju, thanks for the reviews/ratings. Do you really think both of Kota's matches on nights 2 and 3 are 5 star matches? May I ask why you thought they were? If they really are that good then it's an instabuy for me

Chikara
King of Trios: Night 2


1. Austin Aries vs Matt Jackson vs Player Dos vs Fire Ant - ***3/4
Lots of energy in this one, and it was a great way to kick off the show. I was actually most impressed by Matt Jackson. Never thought I'd see the day Player Dos pinned A-Double, who reverted to his heel character inexplicably.

PROMO - The F1RST Family
This was going ok...then Darin Corbin went crazy. He went "Macho Man" and threatened all manner of violence. His stablemates had a hard time restraining him. Very funny.

2. The F1RST Family vs F.I.S.T. - ***1/2
A very soild match between two of the longest tagging trios in Chikara. Everybody hit their stuff, and I love it when Icarus picks up a win off a pedigree. That always pisses the crowd right off. A six-man triangle choke makes an appearance as well.

3. The Submission Squad vs Davey Vega & Gary The Barn Owl - *
...the F*ck?

PROMO - The Future is Now
This was as generic as it gets, although I was impressed with how comfortable Jimmy Ol...I mean Equinox...was in the promo.

4. The Osirian Portal vs The Future Is Now - **3/4
Look, I actually like TFIN, but you gotta hit your spots, guys. Escorpion's suckitude was not as prevalent in this. Still, I liked this just as much as the Future's first round match...in that I didn't. Lince nearly killing himself on a dive was pretty funny though.

5. El Generico vs Nick Jackson vs Jigsaw vs Kota Ibushi - ****1/4
Sweaty Balls! This was insane! I thought the entire crowd was going to drop dead of an overdose of kickassery. The Kota/Generico stuff was legend, again. My only complaint would be that the pinfalls happened too quickly, but it was still the best frickin' match of Night 2.

PROMO - The UnStable
This was slightly better than TFIN's promo, if only for the entire team constantly stroking their mustaches. Vin's was pretty impressive, but Aries should have showed up with an electric razor threatening a "lip stripping". Oh well.

6. The UnStable vs. Da Soul Touchaz - ***1/4
Gotta be honest, the only thing I remember from this was Willie and Marshe pulling out a russian leg sweep / lungblower combo. It was bananas. Oh, and Willie applying a sick double stacked boston crab. I think Gerard got a flash roll-up. *shrugs*

PROMO - The Super Smash Bros.
Uno was boring me until Dos showed up with a present. I really like both of those guys, and the new outfits were pretty damn sharp.

7. Twiggy vs. Player Uno - ***
This was fine, I guess. Uno's offense is pretty varied so it keeps your attention. Twiggy's finisher was called "The Al Bundy Fan Club". No Ma'am references were a' plenty. I giggled.

PROMO - Team Uppercut
Dave Taylor can't wait to take on Johnny Saint. Claudio wants a piece of Quack. Danielson...well...he doesn't know Skayde...but he can't wait to get his hands on him! UPPERCUT!

8. Team Uppercut vs Masters Of A Thousand Holds - ****
I was let down by this a little, but I got my head out of my ass, rewatched it, and scolded myself. It's great. Some suprising sloppiness from Quack and Claudio, but Saint facing Dragon and Taylor was just so cool. Hot finish to this as well. BRING. DAVE. TAYLOR. BACK. ALWAYS.

OVERALL - 8 / 10
A very, very good show. The two RDV matches and the Main were all better than anything on Night 1. There was still a couple of REALLY bad matches (...the F*ck?!) and Night 1 was much funnier, but Night 2 had three great matches and another really good one, so it was an improvement on Night 1. Props to Player Dos and the Young Bucks. They were very impressive and deserve all the praise in the world. None are as well-known as Generico, Aries, and Ibushi, but they will be very soon. You can get this DVD at smartmarkvideo.com along with Nights 1 and 3, as well as past King of Trios DVDs.
