Watched up to the end of Night 2 of Trios and so far it's been a really fun show. The only two things I could consider bad about the show is the ref that can't stay distracted for the finishes and the really short Touchdown/Waltman match from Night 2. Loved Tadasuke/Kingston and if it wasn't for ACH/Touchdown from Ring of Wax it might be the best Chikara match of the year.
So Tadasuke doesn't suck hard anymore? Good.
Being without internet killed my Chikara viewing for this year. I'm finally good to go now and gonna cram all the awesomeness. Screw going outside. All I need is Chikara. #palewrestlingfan
Yeah I never understood that. First I figured it would lead to a rematch vs Green Ant. Didn't happen. Theh I thought it was a way phase out the YLC for good. And this year proved that theory wrong. It's well in the past now and we got a new champ here to defend.
I have to chime in that I love Touchdown going rudo. Fits him better than when he debuted as a semi-technico with a sour attitude towards everyone being 'geeks and nerds'.
Touchdown and Hatfield beat the Bravados when Veronice distracted the ref and Touchdown threw his football in the face of one of the Bravados who was in the middle of an O'Conner roll, which was reversed for the three. Fun stuff and there was even a halftime during the match, complete with cheerleading performances from Veronica and Lancelot. Throwbacks get two points while the Bravados go from two to zero.
Ophidian beat Akuma in a short match. The top rope came loose so it kind of fell apart. The finish was botched as Ophidian reversed a reversal for the pin, but Akuma's shoulder was up and Yost hesitated on his three count.
Saturyne beat Amber O'Neal with a headscissors submission. Okay stuff. Amber's outfit was very cheeky. She wasn't a great base for Saturyne's lucha offense, but she's a good heel.
The Mysterious and Handsome Stranger won his open challenge over an Alabama indy guy. Another short match which Stranger won with the Alabama Jam. He cut a promo afterward saying he has been rising and rising and was time for the plane to touch down. Not many people got the pun.
Donst and Jakob beat Soldier and deviANT. Both teams just couldn't get along. Donst's anger made Jakob angry. Friendly fire by Jakob on Donst got Donst angry. Finish was Donst getting Soldier in the stranglehold submission while Jakob was apologizing for the friendly fire. After Soldier tapped out, Donst made Jakob get on his knees and take a Sliding D as punishment. Donst then called out Kingston and made the belt motion. Donst and Jakob have two points.
assailANT beat Sugar with a crossbody rollthough into a DVD in a surprisingly short match. assailANT was trying to be a babyface. Nothing memorable. Sugar gave assailANT a fistbump after the match.
Main event was a 10-man tag with Icarus, Chuck Taylor, the Shard, Obariyon and Kobald versus UMB, Hallowicked, Quack, Fire Ant and Green Ant. Good 20-minute match. Near the end, Chuck Taylor's knee bent the wrong way on a Colony double-team move and he rolled out for good. UMB pinned Icarus with the Praying Mantis Bomb. Babyface celebration to end the show.
Seems like a rougher show then Deep Freeze due to the reshuffling, hope everyone is ok.

Seems that show didn't have the luck that Klunk In Love did with a rope malfunction.
Thing that caught my eye was another GEKIDO member working in a technico turn. Shard tried it vs Jigsaw months ago and now AssailAnt showed it. Might see some new alignment changes come the season finale.
So I watched a few shows from the beginning of the season when GEKIDO and The Swarm first showed up.........and I thought they were the new heel group. Did something happen at KOT that continued The Swarm and The Colony being in teams? and why are members of GEKIDO and The Swarm being technicos now?
Needless to say, I'm confused.
Also, what happened to Quack taking out all of them?
