Out of all the ECW alumni, that IS the best team possible, IMO.
Oh I see how I was suppose to interpret that now. I was thinking the person meant the best team PERIOD. Not out of ECW alumni. And the only person I'm not really excited about is Dreamer and he is probably the most popular along with the reason they probably are there.
Now can I ask why this whole ants crap is happening. I know Fire Ant wouldn't be able to compete but why not just plug Quack in there. That actually makes sense. Instead we got Soldier Ant, by far the most hot about the Swarm and whenever he has a chance he tries to rip their masks off and beat them up outside the ring, and two members of the Swarm. I just don't like it. I know it integrates the math formula stuff and they probably want to create this dynamic but I this is the second storyline driven team, where in it isn't so much about the team being in the tournament but the dynamic of the team, it seems with the first being The Throwbacks which excluded Sugar Dunkerton. Now we got Green Ant needing a team as well which in my opinion starts creating almost filler. Even if the team ends of being filler it will probably be better than Team Australia.
Who says Green Ant or Sugar is going to be a part of KOT this year just because they aren't on a team.
A guy somewhere on another forum came up with an idea, Gekido gets a team in with Shard, 17 & AssailANT, now that team will team up against Soldier, CombatANT & DeviANT, all 5 guys end up taking out Soldier, adding more fuel to the fire.
I just assumed you would of all healthy members of the previous King of Trios wrestling in this year's tournament. I wanted the Colony in there with a different 3rd member just not separated. I also assumed Sir Dunkerton would have a team as well because he got douched by Mr. Touchdown
It’s former Young Lions Cup champion vs. Rey de Voladores tournament winner in Portland, ME when Frightmare makes his singles competition return against Ophidian. Last time Frightmare had a singles match in CHIKARA was in May of 2011 when Archibald Peck put him away. An injury kept Frightmare on the shelf for months, but he is now ready to come back and claim his spot once again. Ophidian on the other hand has had his ups and downs this year as he tries to find his footing. He needs all the wins he can get if he wants to ascend to the level he desires. Both guys need the win, but who will be the one on top when the dust settles?
Green Ant takes on assailANT at “The Great Escape” in Maine on July 28th. Green Ant seems to be getting revenge on the Swarm one member at a time. Last month, he defeated deviANT in Syracuse to get revenge for deviANT taking his mask in March. Last month was a big weekend for assailANT as he pinned Soldier Ant twice on back-to-back evenings. Perhaps Green Ant can take him down a peg in a one-on-one environment. Will he, or will assailANT continue to persevere in CHIKARA?

In a rematch from last years “The Case of the Bulletproof Waldo”, Sara Del Rey will take on Icarus. Their first encounter was one of the more under appreciated bouts of the 12 Large Summit tournament and helped Sara further her rise up CHIKARA’s singles rankings. She may be coming into this match as the Grand Champion if she can defeat Eddie Kingston the night before. Icarus also got in Kingston’s face at “The Foggiest Notion”, leading us to believe there might be some underlying tension there. If Sara loses to Kingston and Icarus is able to beat her, Icarus could very well lay claim to getting a shot at that championship in addition to gaining revenge for that loss from last Summer. This really is anyone’s game and both participants have something to gain or lose.
