CHIKARA CHIKARASaurus Rex: How to Hatch a Dinosaur
CHIKARA CHIKARASaurus Rex: How to Hatch a Dinosaur (6/2/2012)- Philadelphia, PA

OPHIDIAN PROMO- not good, and the new mask is extremely ugly.

MATCH FOR THE TITLE OF "THE MOST DEVIOUS MAN IN CHIKARA: UltraMantis Black vs. Ophidian- 6/10
Decent opener.

THROWBACKS PROMO- good

LOSER OF THE FALL LEAVES CHIKARA: The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield & "Mr. Touchdown" Mark Angelosetti) vs. Colt Cabana & Mixed Martial Archie- 6.75/10
Good storytelling and great aftermath, too.

LADDER MATCH WITH GRAN AKUMA'S CHIKARA CAREER ON THE LINE AND WITH GREGORY IRON AS SPECIAL GUEST REFEREE: Gran Akuma vs. Icarus- 7/10
Standard ladder match stuff.

HANDICAP MATCH: Sara Del Rey & Saturyne vs. The Batiri (Obariyon, Kobald, & Kodama)- 5/10
Decent match. Really just an excuse to get to the finish and the aftermath, which were well done.

MASK VS. HAIR MATCH: Hallowicked(mask) vs. Tim Donst(hair)- 7/10
Nice to see Donst get some comeuppance for all of his cheating over the past few years. The restart was GREAT. Going in, I was dead sure that there was no way that Hallowicked was going to lose, but I was stunned when Donst won (and I even knew that it was coming!)

EDDIE KINGSTON PROMO- very good

10 MAN TAG TEAM MATCH: Eddie Kingston, Soldier Ant, Green Ant, Jigsaw, & Mike Quackenbush vs. GEKIDO (17, the Shard, DeviANT, CombatANT, & AssailANT) (w/Derek Sabato)- 7.75/10
A great brawl. The hate was definitely tangible here. People going for masks and stuff like that. This match also had some cool high spots including a dive off of a b- WHOA! AFTER the match, Quack went up to 17 and TRIED TO BREAK HIS HAND!

YOUNG BUCKS PROMO- holy poop. I guess this ROH-CHIKARA stuff isn't done.

2 OUT OF 3 FALLS MATCH FOR THE CHIKARA CAMPEONATOS DE PAREJAS: F.I.S.T. (Chuck Taylor & Johnny Gargano)(c) vs. The Young Bucks- 9.25/10
WOW! Just an absolutely AMAZING wrestling match with some unbelievable near falls.
Also, someone needs to call the police. During this match, a significant portion of the crowd was rooting for F.I.S.T. and the only way I can possibly image that could happen would be if Icarus was standing behind them with a machine gun.

Overall, a great show from CHIKARA with some good payoffs and storyline advancement. The ladder match and Donst vs. Hallowicked a little disappointing in terms of ring-work, but still were good matches and the 10 man tag was great, but you should buy this show for the main event.
