CHIKARA JoshiMania: Night 1 (12/2/2011)- Philadelphia, PA
ARCHIBALD PECK & VERONICA BACKSTAGE- good
KAORI YONEYAMA, HANAKO NAKAMORI, & TSUBASA KURAGAKI- vs. LOS ICE CREAMS & ARCHIBALD PECK (w/Veronica)- 6.25/10
GAMI vs. SAWAKO SHIMONO- 4.75/10
Two weapon shots right in front of the referee- one of them right after the ref had explicitly told her not to- and still no DQ? Anyway, this wasn’t very good. The heel stuff managed to get me behind Shimono, but I really just didn’t care about a lot of the things they did.
TIM DONST PROMO- decent
GREEN ANT vs. TIM DONST- 6.5/10
AYAKO HAMADA & CHERRY vs. MAYUMI OZAKI & MIO SHARAI- 6.75/10
I was into all of the heel antics, and the finish made Hamada look strong, which was important because she was one of the three women this weekend was build around.
MANAMI TOYOTA vs. TOSHIE UEMATSU- 7.5/10
2 OUT OF 3 FALLS MATCH FOR THE CHIKARA CAMPEONATOS DE PAREJAS: F.I.S.T. (Chuck Taylor & Johnny Gargano)(c) vs. The Colony (Soldier Ant & Fire Ant)- 7.25/10
SARA DEL REY vs. AJA KONG- 6.5/10
Very disappointing. This was a dream match. This was the reason people were excited about this weekend… and they only gave it twelve minutes? This was good, but it’s a damn DREAM MATCH. It should have been awesome, and it wasn’t.
Overall, a decent show from CHIKARA, but disappointing, all things considered.
