It is just me or chikara has been quite weak wrestling wise so far?
Yeah it's only the beginning of the year but the GEKIDO thing has been leaving me unimpressed.
I like the Gekido angle, that interests me. What i can't deal with anymore now that i have finished I'll be a mummy's uncle is these stupid brawls that break out everytime they get near the ring. this one calms down and they actually get into the ring and wrestle a bit, but if I wanted a brawl i could stand outside a bar and wait for people to throw each other around. I don't know if i would say that the wrestling is weak...and much as they are holding back so many of their trademark moves. I haven't seen the colony throw down a ants go marching all year, or a lot of their high flying offence. lots of this year has seemed really slow. i've seen all the shows and they are all atleast 7/10, and the ottawa show was a solid 8. i'll be a mummy's uncle might be a 6...if i try and forget all of the botched moves from the 4 way tag.
I can understand the Ants doing more brawling then high-flying against the GEKIDO because it is personal. I think when they face other opponents (like the trios match at ROH tonight) they'll bust those out.
