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.
