The Ghost of You Clings DVD Review

ghostclings

Chikara’s run through the south continued in grand fashion to Porterdale, Georgia.  Grand because Eddie Kingston had to once again defend the Grand Championship, this time against Mr. Touchdown. Both of these men have been outstanding performers while holding their respective titles, so I’m really glad we got to see this. I’m not sure why this wasn’t the main event ... Read More »

Chikara Battle Not With Monsters DVD Review

chikara-05-03-2013-500x500

There has been a lot of discussion through various podcasts about timelines, alternative universes, and doppelgangers concerning Chikara. I will leave those conspiracy theories for them and focus my energy on discussing the wrestling on all of the Chikara shows from here on and channel some anger toward Tom Donst and his motley crew. What alternate timeline are we in ... Read More »

Chikara The Shoulder of Pallas DVD Review

chikara-dvd-april-6-2013-the-shoulder-of-pallas-secaucus-nj-602730787-500x500

“I’m glad this isn’t an iPPV.”  -Leonard F. Chikarason No truer words were spoken for the entirety of Wrestlecon than the ones said by the former director of fun. As seemingly every promotion in the world was running on one of the numerous iPPV providers, Chikara was saving up their big showcase for June 2. Fortuitously,The Shoulder of Pallas was ...

Chikara Watchmaker DVD Review

chikara-dvd-march-9-2013-watchmaker-orlando-fl-1804083579-500x500

It’s amazing how my perception of three people can change so dramatically after two shows. Colony Xtreme Force jumped the shark on the Orlando show. Their antics completely overwhelmed their match with the Batiri. You could see the crowd being sucked out of the Orlando crowd as the CXF danced, celebrated, and behaved in such a way that the very ... Read More »

Chikara Just Shadows in the Fog DVD Review

chikara-dvd-march-8-2013-just-shadows-in-the-fog-tampa-fl-565317209-500x500

Chikara finally made its way down to Florida just a few short weeks ago, and it was a tale of two shows. First up, Tampa, i.e. the good show. This was top to bottom a very strong Chikara show overall that featured a rare instance of a first half being longer (and better) than the second half. Many Chikara storylines ... Read More »

Chikara: While the Dawn is Breaking DVD Review

chikara-dvd-february-10-2013-while-the-dawn-is-breaking-easton-pa-195019285-500x500

As much as Peck and Touchdown over delivered in their feud during 2012, one of the more disappointing feuds had to be Eddie Kingston versus Kevin Steen. Perhaps it’s because of the politics between Ring of Honor and Chikara. Maybe their styles didn’t mesh as well as we hoped. Maybe our expectations were just too darn high. Whatever the reason, ...

Chikara All The Agents and Superhuman Crew DVD Review

chikara-dvd-february-9-2013-all-the-agents-and-superhuman-crew-reading-pa-1885030660-500x500

  Professional wrestling doesn’t get to be Shakespeare or tell that classic story nearly as much anymore. The typical babyface versus heel narrative has been drastically altered by society’s whims to the point that men like Don Draper and Dexter Morgan are protagonists while the police or genuinely good people are annoying ants who we want to see our heroes ...

  -Green Ant vs. Mike Quackenbush (The 13th Hat, 1.28.12) Match in Five Words or Less:  The Student Becomes The Masters Match Highlights: Referees are in new aqua blue shirts. I mention this only because I’m a giant nerd who notices those kinds of things. Quack yells at some people who showed up late before the match. Hilarious. Code of Honor ... Read More »
