CHIKARA It’s How You Play The Game (3/25/2012)- Ottawa, ON
MIKE BAILEY vs. MATHIEU ST. JACQUES- 4.5/10
JIGSAW vs. “MR. TOUCHDOWN” MARK ANGELOSETTI- 5.5/10
A good match, and the stuff with Veronica was good, too.
LEAH VON DUTCH vs. SARA DEL REY- 2/10
Von Dutch really wasn’t too good in the ring. Her moonsault looked nice, but she ran so damn slowly it was ridiculous. She was nowhere close to even being three levels below Sara’s level. The good news, though, is that her cuteness is inversely proportional to her wrestling skill.
DASHER HATFIELD vs. OPHIDIAN- 6/10
3.0LE BACKSTAGE PROMO- good, but 3.0 need to be careful. If they keep punching Generico in the stomach like this, he is going to turn on them one of these days.
THE BATIRI vs. 3.0LE- 6.25/10
Surprisingly, the Canadian crowd was a lot more pro Batiri than they were pro- Canadians. Unsurprisingly, things were at their best when Generico was in the ring.
17 & THE SHARD vs. HALLOWICKED & ULTRAMANTIS BLACK- 5/10
Delirious wandered into the building to distract UltraMantis in the beginning of the match while Tim Donst left the Commentation Station to distract him at the end of the match. Also, he was the babyface in peril during the match, and after the match, Ophidian stole his staff. Not a good day for UltraMantis.
ARCHIBALD PECK PROMO- he’s despondent because Veronica left him.
ARCHIBALD PECK vs. CHUCK TAYLOR- FREAKIN’ HILARIOUS!
THE SWARM vs. THE COLONY- no rating. Great segment. It got over everything it needed to; the mirror-match aspect and the disrespect from GEKIDO. Ripping the mask off was a perfect finish here, too.
EDDIE KINGSTON PROMO- okay.
CHIKARA GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Eddie Kingston(c) vs. Brodie Lee- 7.5/10
A great send-off for Brodie Lee.
A decent show from CHIKARA.
