CHIKARA King of Trios 2012: Night 3 (9/16/2012)- Easton, PA
KING OF TRIOS TOURNAMENT SEMIFINAL MATCH: Team Sendai Girls (Dash Chisako, Meiko Satomura &, Sendai Sachiko) vs. Team ROH (The Young Bucks & “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett) (w/Maria Kanellis)- 6.5/10
Good story with Team ROH underestimating the Sendai Girls.
KING OF TRIOS TOURNAMENT SEMIFINAL MATCH: The Spectral Envoy vs. F.I.S.T. (w/Sugar Dunkerton)- 6.25/10
OPHIDIAN vs. SATURYNE- 6/10
Dear CHIKARA, please do not let Dasher Hatfield do commentary ever again. He is horrendous.
TIM DONST PROMO- very good
TAG TEAM GAUNTLET MATCH: 6.25/10
The finish to the first match here was that spot where one guy sits a Superplex but the other guy catches him in a small package. I absolutely hate that spot. You just took a Superplex! You shouldn’t be able to just small package the other guy as he tries to get up! The interactions between Tim and Jakob were good, though. Then the Devastation Corporation came out and destroyed a whole bunch of teams until Demolition came out to face the rip-offs/tribute, which was cool. Overall, the whole match was nice fun nostalgia-filled romp.
COLT CABANA, DARKNESS CRABTREE, THE SWAMP MONSTER, & JOHNEL SANDERS vs. 3.0, TAKOYAKIDA, & EBESSAN- FUNNIEST MATCH OF ALL-TIME!
I am not kidding about this. This match is f*cking HILARIOUS! Better than Punk and Delriious in IWA-MS, better than Archie vs. Chuck Taylor, better than Delirious vs. Cabana from ROH This Means War II, better than Cena vs. Del Rio from the Christmas Raw, or anything that Santino has done.
MANAMI TOYOTA & KAORI YONEYAMA vs. TSUBASA KURAGAKI & COMMANDO BOLSHOI-7/10
JIGSAW vs. TADASUKE- 6.5/10
ULTRAMANTIS BLACK PROMO- good
KING OF TRIOS TOURNAMENT FINALS- 8.5/10
Awesome match! A great story in the beginning with Team ROH working over Firghtmare’s injured knee and then just some awesome false finishes.
Overall, an awesome show from CHIKARA. King of Trios as a whole, and night 3 in particular, rarely disappoints.
