It feels a bit like a filler PPV. Which is weird for Chikara.
I doubt Amasis/Ophidian will be a blow off, no Colony/CXF we're stalling with the Envoy stuff, there's not much of a build to Icarus/Kingston, and I'm pretty sure Donst/Gavin is just a step in the build to Donst/Jakob.
I guess if we get the predicted Pieces of Hate title win that would be less filler but even that seems like just part of building to a Quack/Shane return for the finale.
Saturyne/Touchdown is the only thing that feels even remotely like a blow off to a story. And should be great considering how great their last match was.
A lot of this card just feels like a stepping stone to get us to the finale. None of the other Chikara iPPVs have felt that way.
High Noon had the first champion crowned, the end of the BdK across multiple matches, and the end of the Cabana/Peck and Icarus/Iron feuds
C-Rex had the three Luchas De Apuestas and a tag title change meant to kick off a big angle.
UTH had the (disappointing) blow off to the Kingston/Donst feud, two more title matches, and the blow off to two small feuds (FIST/3.0 and Icarus/Dasher)
This feels more like UTH than the first two.
That said theoretical iPPV 5 could be awesome. Could see some big stuff with Donst/Jakob, the inner-FIST fighting, Colony/CXF, Los Ice Creams/LICXF, Pieces of Hate/Lightening Storm, Amasis/Ophidian, maybe even some type of blow off to Wink/Kingston.
