Ughh.Gabe always comes off looking like a total douche....Anyway
Here's the start of my KOT 3 night review
Ok, got the KOT a week after it happened and watched it over three days and havn't had a chance to post my thoughts yet, so here we go...(It's been almost 2 weeks since I started watching night 1, so I'll be adding to these reviews over the next 48hours as I re-watch)
CHIKARA King of Trios 2011 Night One
-Osirian Portal (Ophidian, Amasis & Hieracon) vs. Team 3.Ole! (Shane Matthews, Scott Parker & El Generico) ***1/4
Great opening match, greta way to start the weekend. Really great comedy to start and then things get ramped up for the last couple minutes of the match. Wasn't the smoothest ending if remember correctly but still a good fun opener.
-F.I.S.T (Johnny Gargano, Chuck Taylor & Icarus) vs. Team Australia (Kabel, Percy T & Tama Williams) **
Meh, didn't care, was very avaerage.
-B.D.K. (Delirious, Tim Donst & Jakob Hammermeier) vs. Da Soul Touchaz (Acid Jazz, Marshe Rockett & Willie Richardson) **1/2
Jakob's hilarity is the highlight of this match. This match did it's job, nothing more, nothing less
-Amazing Red & The Maximos vs. Mike Quackenbush, Manami Toyota & Jigsaw ***3/4
Really really fun fast paced match, shortest of the top three matches of the night and probably the best, really well put togeather. There was a little sloppiness towards the end but didn't hurt it that much.
-Spectral Envoy (Hallowicked, Frightmare & Ultramantis Black) vs. Team Dragon Gate (Super Shisa, Akira Tozawa & KAGETORA) ***1/2
need to watch again, dont remember to much about the specifics but I can remember liking the fact I got a better look at Shisa, he really impressed. Also, i remember thinking that it was a really good trios match and I have a feeling my rating will go up after a re-watch.
-The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield, Sugar Dunkerton & Matt Classic) vs. Team Osaka Pro (Atsushi Kotoge, Daisuke Harada & Ultimate Spider, Jr.) ****
I seem to be alone in this but I feel like this was the MOTN. It essentially is the same kind of match that the opening Trios match was but done better IMO. Great comedy spots to start, Cabana is really really great right now. Also after a bit the match takes on a more serious tone and gets down to action. Better comedy thant he opening match, better action than the DG vs Spectral Envoy match. Great stuff and so far it seems to be slept on.
-The Colony (Fire Ant, Soldier Ant & Green Ant) vs. Sinn Bodhi, Obariyon & Kodama **3/4
-Team Michinoku Pro (Great Sasuke, Dick Togo & Jinsei Shinzaki) vs. Team Minnesota (1-2-3 Kid, Arik Cannon & Dorin Corbin) ***3/4
Fatastic main event. More on this later and night 2 & 3, gotta get back to work, lol.
