This was an okay show made much more enjoyable by a loud crowd that was vociferous without being stupid. Hearing dumb stuff screeched from the audience always kind of annoys me, but I heard nothing but raucous cheers and boos here. The comments I could
hear were well-timed and pretty innocent, making for good crowd interaction. The 8-Man Atomico, the Young Lions Cup match & the main event were all really good, and I enjoyed BDK/Throwbacks and Delirious/Dos, too. On the whole though, the show lacked a lot of meaning. It served as a very good set-up for the next night, but does not hold well under its own weight. Furthermore, only two tecnico squads actual got pinfall victories and they were in the two matches that had the least recent storylines and immediate importance attached. I'd easily recommend the show for any Chikara fan, as there's a lot to like, but I don't think non-devotees will feel it's essential viewing. Thumbs up for the die-hard fans, thumbs…in the middle…for those fans who don't have a ton of cash to throw around and aren't absolute completests.
