Chikara - All The Agents & Superhuman Crew


No Disqualification Match

Archibald Peck vs Mark Angelosetti ~ ****


~ Perhaps I'm in the minority of those who loved Peck vs Touchdown. All good. Felt this was worked really, really well. To the point where I can call it great. Quite comfortably, tbhayley. Sometimes guys in Chikara try to strike and the strikes come off as so weak it is hard to get into things. Not here. Peck & Touchdown both really went at it; which only further pushed the No DQ environment. All sorts of comebacks are brought into play here - standard Chikara fare relying on some strong on point storytelling to help bring out the best nature of a match. I know the one major story development will be too wacky for some. For me, I bought into it. I know how Chikara is and I've come to expect everything, no matter how over the top it may be when you look at it from outside of the context that is implied. A bit silly for a match that was worked with a more serious tone throughout (not like I'M GONNA KILL YOU SERIOUS, but serious enough to buy things, you know?) yet fitting when this was a program ender. And as that - a feud ender - this was probably the most satisfying of them all. Great match. Right from the outset this worked. Only complaint I could find was Touchdown fiddled with one of his gimmicks a touch too long before hitting a move...that's it. Minor gripe. Rest, oh yeah. Too much fun.

Watch Ant vs Kingston as well. IMO it's just as good. Plus, Kevin Steen in Chikara, you can't go wrong.

I'll give it a watch for Gran Akuma/Young Bucks, rather.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Kazuchika Okada vs Lance Archer (NJPW 11/3)
Great match. Oh so simple, but oh so sweet. Archer is boss here, dominating from the bell until Okada's comeback and then the short but great finishing stretch. Loved Archer cutting Okada off especially the spots where he just grabbed him by the throat and threw him over the top rope and the swatting the dropkick away like it was nothing. Okada's comeback was really well done and I loved the turning point being the moonsault attempt. Counter from the powerbomb into the air raid crash neckbreaker was awesome, chokeslam was a great nearfall, and the crowd reaction after was testament to that. Really dug the small package by Okada when the Rainmaker kept failing. That's a move that never fails to generate great counter sequences. I actually really liked the finish despite the move looking kind of lame, but I don't mind it. Let's face it, if I can buy into Cena's STF I can buy into this too tbh. Basically just loved how simple and to the point this was with two really good performances. ****

Screw you, asshole. You would have missed a good show if the people here were helpful to your desires.


Chikara - All The Agents & Superhuman Crew (09/02/2013)

First Time Ever!
Green Ant Vs Eddie Kingston
★★★★
I didn't buy Green Ant having a chance here right until Kingston tweaked his knee off the dive. Even then the Steen "interference" certainly added plausibility in the victory, too. That's not to say Green Ant never made himself here, though, as he most certainly sold himself as the underdog that could out-wrestle the champion with his submission arsenal. Both wrestlers playing off of their characters (Kingston the powerhouse; Green Ant the submission expert)
most certainly added depth to this and had me buy into its goodness. Green Ant, instead of going for the easily in-reach ropebreak, rather turns Kingston's stomach claw into a sub on the arm. Now while Kingston was also easily able to get the rope-break it wasn't about having the champion submit, it was about showing Kingston that Green Ant was dangerous if the match swayed even marginally from Kingston's powerhouse offence. Throw in great selling as well as Green Ant taking Kingston's strikes like a champ and you have me sold, again, on Chikara. Even if it's just for one or two matches on the card.


No Disqualification Match!
Archibald Peck Vs Mark Angelosetti
★★★★
This was a completely different beast to the Kingston/Ant match. While the previous match was more wrestling-heavy this was all about their gimmicks and the storyline. Ultimately it was everything Chikara is about. Any mention to over-reliance on gimmicks is negated purely due to backstory and Peck's final, triumphant return. It just made complete sense. This is not for those who want a great matchup as its stalls and comedy segments will most probably drive you into hating it but if you like Chikara, if you love comedic commentary (hell, even if you're like me who doesn't) GET ON THIS. I cannot think of a better way in which they could have done this. Perfection.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

IWRG 02/18/2013

Chico Che, Freelance & Hijo del Pantera vs Apolo Estrada Jr., Avisman & Eita
I loved how the match greatly contrasts itself stylistically even in the first fall. The first part of the match shows the first two babyfaces owning the first two heels on the mat. Then when it's time for each team to tag in their third man, the match smoothly changes direction into a balls-to-the-wall brawl. The matwork is insane, flashy but rarely over-the-top and the brawling is violent and stiff. Every man involved in this was great and it always felt like every man had his own rival in this potential lucha MOTYC.
★★★★
