Chikara - High Noon

- Wow fuck. Watching the pre show. Steve Weiner is fucking shite.
- Donst & Jakob bring out a guitar during the pre show... Twas hilarious

1. Pre Show Match
Jigsaw vs El Generico
***
Fun quick match.

2. The Young Bucks vs The Colony
***1/2
So so so disappointed that the Bucks aren't out to Hanson. The Young Bucks are accompanied to the ring by Marty Jannetty.

3. Jakob Hammermeier vs Sara Del Rey
**
Jakob is looking very feminine with the way his hair is tied tonight.

4. Green Ant vs Tursas
**1/2

5. Colt Cabana vs Archibald Peck
**1/2

6. Gregory Iron vs Icarus
**3/4
Heap of guys in the front row have "Worst In The World" T-Shirts for Icarus

7. Hair & Eye Of Tyr vs Mask & Mask - Loser Loses There Specific Thing - No DQ
The BDK vs The Spectral Envoy
***1/4

8. Chikara Grand Championship - 12 Large Summit Final
Eddie Kingston vs Mike Quackenbush
****


- Green Ant vs Tursas wasn't good. There was some fun spots but Tursas lacked any domination. They didn't build anything for the whole Tursas squashing Sabato. It lacked drama and nobody saw Green Ant as an underdog coming from behind so that they can cheer for him. It was almost an extended squash.

I can definitely see where you're coming from there. I still really enjoyed the match, but yeah, Tursas should've had a lot more offense.

Well considering how their Chikarasaurus Rex match was, it seemed like they made Green Ant a lot more prepared for what he had to do vs the big Tursas.

And yes, smitlick, Steven Weiner is awful. I loved when Brodie Lee destroyed him back in 2008.

Great weekend of action by Dragon Gate USA. Gargano showed why he’s the most improved wrestler in the company and that Ronin still has a lot to do in 2012, Uhaa Nation had all three crowds in the palm of his hands and Ricochet/PAC finally had the match everyone’s expected out of them. Only bad thing is Gabe’s blind love of Sabu which was the low point of Nights One & Two and moved what should have been the main event/closing angle of 2011 out of that spot and instead filled it with a meandering match which most of the crowd didn't care about after YAMATO/Gargano.

Just finished watching a replay of Chikara's High Noon which happened to be my first Chikara show, and here are some ratings

The Colony vs. The Young Bucks ***1/2 (Perfect opening match)

Sara Del Rey vs. Jacob Hammermeier *1/2 (More or less a squash but a fun one)

Green Ant vs. Tursas *** (Good match, was fun to watch Green Ant take it to the larger opponent)

Colt Cabana vs. Archibold Peck N/A (Not gonna rate but this was insanely entertaining)

Icarus vs. Gregory Iron **1/2 (Nice little match. Icarus' character is such an asshole haha)

BDK vs. The Spectral Envoy ***1/2 (Fun brawl. I look forward to seeing the repercussions)

Mike Quakenbush vs. Eddie Kingston ***3/4 (Great match and a great moment to close the show)


I really enjoyed this show. Lots of great moments and just thoroughly entertaining throughout. I look forward to watching more Chikara in the immediate future

12) Matt Jackson/Nick Jackson vs Obariyon/Kodama - ***1/2

13) Young Lions Cup Finals ~ Green Ant vs Tadasuke - **1/2

For the most part it was just a fun show. A different kind of fun. Not the usual super awesome Chikara level of fun, but fun nonetheless. Matt Jackson had quite the night. Hallowicked vs SDR was sadly underwhelming. Much more grounded than I would have figured. Mantis & Pinkie's match may have only been 5 min, but boy did they make it work. Really was into it. The speaker spot was AWESOME. <3 Mantis. Per usual it was always cool to see the young indie talent around and this one was no different. Nothing to really go out of your way to see, but I'd say owning would be fine. I'd watch again. Too bad there was no Countdown Showdown thanks to the weather causing this to be compressed into one LONG show. Over 3 hours, btw.

Oh and Chikara pulled a rare HORRIBLE booking decision and gave Tadasuke the win. What the hell. He's garbage. Only thing he did was one hell of a punch to the face in the finals. Still annoyed by the decision.

Red face Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I don't normally do reviews; I'm not a very big fan of star ratings or anything, and I can't judge my enjoyment of a particular match on a scale of 1-5. So, since I was drunk for almost all of DGUSA on Saturday - along with Fitz and KaijuuuuFanuuuuu - thanks to a 40, I'll rate everything out of 40 oz. I think that offers me a lot more freedom for variety. If I remember enough, maybe I'll even add a comment or two. Oh, and I'll do it all in COMIC SANS.

Dragon Gate USA - Bushido: Code of the Warrior 2011
OR
Open the Show Title That Sounds Like a Video Game Title Gate


a. Pre-show: The Scene vs. Uhaa Nation & BJ Whitmer
40/40 oz.
I wish our Colt 45s had 45 oz. so I could rate this even higher. Uhaa is my new favorite wrestler ever. That's all I remember, but it was amazing.

1. Masato Yoshino vs. A.R. Fox
33/40 oz.

Nice back-and-forth match. I like Fox but I like Yoshino way more. Yep.

2. Brodie Lee vs. PAC
31/40 oz.

If it weren't for the fact that PAC is now built like a four-foot-tall Steve Austin, the chances of us seeing more of Brodie decimating him would have been much higher. Not that I hate PAC or anything. Still some cool shit, though.

3. Akira Tozawa vs. Rich Swann
40/40 oz.

They broke the mold when they made Tozawa. This gets the full 40 based on his amazing pre-match performance alone. If I were a record executive I would have signed that motherfucker to a deal right on the spot. It was funny to see Swann nail the standing 450 here, and then fuck it up at CZW. Speaking of CZW, I can't guarantee I'll be able to post a review for that one since I was actually sober, but we'll see.

4. Johnny Gargano vs. BxB Hulk
36/40 oz.

Over the past year Gargano has become one of my favorite wrestlers, and BxB is BxB so this was great. Fuck the crowd for not wanting to help get our JG-approved "cat's pajamas" chant going, though. Show some goddamn respect to the bee's knees!

5. South Philly Street Fight
Pinkie Sanchez vs. Sabu
14/40 oz.

I think this is the point when we started losing our buzz, and it couldn't have been at a worse time. I mean, it was Sabu at the ECW Arena, but it was fucking terrible. And a submission finish for a street fight with him involved? FUCK THAT SHIT. He should keep shaving his head.

6. Open The Freedom Gate Title
YAMATO vs. Chuck Taylor
28/40 oz.

Good match, but I hated the finish, which is pretty much the sole reason for the lower rating. The post-match stuff was awesome, though, so it gets a couple extra ounces of backwash as a consolation prize.

7. Open The Untied Gate Titles
CIMA & Ricochet vs. Sami Callihan & Arik Cannon
26/40 oz.

I would have to watch this again, but my initial reaction was one of disappointment. It was a perfectly fine match, but it had the potential to be crazy good, even if this technically wasn't the biggest show of the weekend. On a side note, I still haven't seen much reason for me to like Arik Cannon.


Gabe seems to be moving away from the "every show is a supercard" approach, which is impossible to accomplish when you're always running fucking tripleshots, anyway. I have fun at DGUSA shows when I'm there live, but for a long time now he hasn't been able to give me a reason to care enough to buy any iPPVs or DVDs. I guess you could call it a "lack of motivation." RIGHT, GABERZ? After being at United: NYC where they first tried the two-hour sprint with no intermission, by the third match I was expecting the exact same thing, so it didn't surprise me and I actually liked that.

Also, after the show we walked up to the Highspots table and manning the table was ... Jake Manning. He was pretty cool, and we talked about a few things, mainly 5 Dollar Wrestling and how he's able to not completely bust out laughing when he interviews Freight Train. I decided not to get the 5 for $40 deal from PWG's site, for a few reasons, so I just picked up BOLA; I'm really looking forward to watching that.
