CHIKARA Zelda The Great 2012 Review:
Da Soul Touchaz vs. The Batiri - ***
Perfect way to open the show. Da Soul Touchaz were great and I have no idea why they aren't regular in Chikara, they fit perfect there in my opinion. Just a great match and the crowd was awesome.
The Devastation Corporation vs. Garth Algar & Wayne Campbell - SQUASH
El Generico vs. The Shard - ***1/4+
They kept it short and sweet. Around 8 or 10 minutes of non-stop action and the crowd marking out to everything Generico did. This was probably Shard's best match, his control segments were great and Generico sold everything as he knows. Really enjoyed this.
Team FIST vs. The Swarm (deviANT & Soldier Ant) - ***
Good story-telling in the match with Soldier Ant and devitANT don't want to work together or even give the other chance to shine. The match wasn't only about the story and had good wrestling as you'd exepct from FIST, they are just incredible, very charismatic and great wrestlers. This feud is really bringing to best out of Soldier in storytelling terms, he's always doing great job in these matches.
Colt Cabana vs. Mike Quackenbush - **3/4
The match was beautiful (literally beautiful) but then just like their match in the summer it ended out of nowhere. This just pissed me off. Still great match and with a better finish and more time this could easily reach the 4* territory.
Jigsaw & The Colony vs. Jimmy Jacobs & The Bravado Brothers - ***1/4
Jacobs is another guy that should be regular in Chikara, the crowd loved him and he worked good with Jigsaw. This was your typical very good trios match, really really looking forward to the match with Steen (can't remember the long name), they hyped it a little during the match, Steen in Chikara is just going to be.. wow.
Gran Akuma vs. Tim Donst - **1/2
Eh this was just fine, after series of great matches this felt out of place to be honest. Not bad by any means but should've been lower in the card.
Four Way Tag Team Elimination Match - 3.0 vs. Sapphire & The Mysterious And Handsome Stranger vs. Team FIST (Icarus & Sugar Dunkerton) vs. The Throwbacks - TOO AWESOME FOR STARS
Words can't describe this match, I had so much fun watching this. Dragged a little after the whole Sapphire thing but still awesome awesome match.
CHIKARA Campeonatos de Parejas Title Best Two Out Of Three Falls Match: The Young Bucks (c) vs. The Spectral Envoy - ***3/4
This was the match of the night as I thought. The Young Bucks played once again great heels and even if their control segment was long I didn't bored simply because they're super entertaining. The first minutes were great and I was surpsied with how fast the first elmantion came. The last minutes were seriously as good as the last minutes of the KOT finals, even I read the results for this show the nearfalls were believeable. Great match.
Overall the show was the best show I've seen from Chikara since KOT. The Chicago crowd helped it too and they were on fire.
