Chikara “Chikarasaurus Rex: How to Hatch a Dinosaur” results
Here are the results from last night’s Chikara event “Chikarasaurus Rex: How to Hatch a Dinosaur”, which also aired live on IPPV:
Ultramantis Black defeated Ophidian
Loser leaves Town Tag Match: The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield and Mark Angelosetti) defeated Team Tapoutback Steakhouse (Colt Cabana and Mixed Martial Archie). Angelosetti took Archie out of the match early on, but he returned halfway through as Archibald Peck. Throwbacks got the win after Angelosetti hit Peck with his helmet while the ref wasn’t looking, meaning Peck is gone from Chikara.
Ladder Match (Gregory Iron as special guest referee): Gran Akuma defeated Icarus
3-on-2 Handicap Match: Sara Del Rey and Saturyne defeated The Batiri by disqualification after Delirious attacked Del Rey and Saturyne.
Mask vs Hair: Hallowicked defeated Tim Donst, then proceeded to shave his head.
5-on-5 Handicap Match: Eddie Kingston, Jigsaw, Green Ant, Soldier Ant and Mike Quackenbush defeated 17, assailANT, deviANT, combatANT and The Shard. The heels had taken out Fire Ant pre-show and the match started as a 5-on-4, but Quack entered early on to make up numbers.
Campeonatos de Parejas: The Young Bucks defeated Johnny Gargano and Chuck Taylor to become the new tag champs.
Thoughts: I was too tired to watch this live last night, so I haven’t actually seen it yet, but it sounds like it was a good show. When I have the time I’ll get a review up.
Lineup for “Chikarasaurus Rex: How to Hatch a Dinosaur”
Here is the final card for Chikara’s show “Chikarasaurus Rex: How to Hatch a Dinosaur”, which takes place tonight at 7PM Eastern (midnight in the UK) at the Trocadero in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and will be streaming live from gfl.tv for $14.99 (roughly £10):
10-man Tag Match: Eddie Kingston, Jigsaw and The Colony (Fire Ant, Soldier Ant and Green Ant) vs 17, The Shard and The Swarm (assailANT, deviANT and combatANT)
Mask vs Hair Match: Hallowicked vs Tim Donst
Campeonatos de Parejas, 2 out of 3 Falls Match: Chuck Taylor and Johnny Gargano vs The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson)
Ladder Match: Gran Akuma vs Icarus (with Gregory Iron as special guest referee)
3-on-2 Handicap Match: The Batiri (Kobald, Kodama and Obariyon) vs Sara Del Rey and Saturyne
Ultramantis Black vs Ophidian
Loser Leaves Town Tag Match: Team Tapoutback Steakhouse (Colt Cabana and Mixed Martial Archie) vs The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield and Mark Angelosetti w/Veronica)
Thoughts: Great name, great poster, great card. This should be a superb show. It’s a shame the Grand Championship isn’t being defended (largely because Kingston does nothing for me as champ and the sooner he drops it the better in my eyes) but if there’s one thing Chikara know how to do better than most promotions, it’s telling a damn good story and we’ve got some fantastic ones here tonight.
Depending on what time I get home from the PCW show tonight, how tired I am and how much money I have, I may cover this show live. Regardless of that, I’ll have results up in the morning. If you attend the show and want to send us a live report, feel free to email it in!

Live review of CHIKARA: I’d Rather Be A Mummy’s Uncle
Thanks very much to Matt from the Shining Wizards Wrestling Podcast for this great review of last night’s CHIKARA show. Be sure to check out Matt’s websites:
I’ll hand you over to him:
Review of CHIKARA: I’d Rather Be A Mummy’s Uncle
So I just returned from my 1st ever Chikara Pro Live event. I’ll Be A Mummy’s Uncle was held in the Rahway Rec Center, and I had a blast. First off, this show was a 2pm bell time. Who doesn’t love an afternoon wrestling event? I got to see 3 hours of quality wrestling, and when it was all over, I still had the afternoon to enjoy the Mets beating the Phillies. If you have never been to a Chikara show, then I highly suggest you check one out. It’s good wrestling, good angles and just overall a good time.
A quick run down of what I was treated too. The show opened with Ultra Mantis Black against Ophidian. Ophidian recently stole Ultra Mantis Black’s staff, so there was a little history there. It was a back and forth battle, with Ophidian using the staff to distract Ultra Mantis Black before spitting some Muta-like Black spray in his face for the win. A good 8 minute battle, that told a great story.
Next we were treated to Saturyne(a woman wrestler) against Kobald (a dude). Now everyone knows how I feel about woman wrestling in general. In the last few weeks I have had to eat my words because the women of TNA put on a great show, and I had to give them credit. Well Santuryne did the same this afternoon. She and Kobald had a great little match, with Kobald getting the W, but Santuryne wrestled her little ass off, and took a beating. I give her all the credit in the world, and it was an enjoyable match.
They followed this little match up with a sick 4 way tag match between QT Marshall/Jack Bonza vs Chuck Taylor and Johnny Gargano from F.I.S.T vs Los Maximos vs The Bravado Brothers, a ton of awesome tag team moves, and a lot of action. F.I.S.T used there sneaky ways to get the pinfall on all 3 of the other teams earning themselves 3 points and a shot at the Tag Champs in the near future. I personally got a huge kick out of The Bravado Brothers, and if you don’t know who they are, look them up on YouTube, they are great.
The next match was “Mr Touchdown” Mark Angelosetti with Dasher Hatfield against Archibald Peck. This match was a riot, Peck was in his MMA gimmick and at one point had Mr Touchdown in a choke hold that put the referee to sleep, then in the middle of the action Peck called time out because Round 1 was over. I found this highly entertaining and it made the match that much better. Peck got DQ’ed for not letting up on the beating he was giving Touchdown in the corner, but it was a great match.
We were treated to Jigsaw and Tim Donst next, which was a wonderful wrestling match. Lots of high impact moves and close finishes. Jigsaw got the win, and Donst got to showcase his skills. I really enjoyed this match. Both these guys are amazing talents and I highly suggest you check them out if you have the time.
We got an intermission break for about 15 minutes, where you could interact with the Chikara wrestlers who were out and about signing autographs and talking to the fans, which is always enjoyable. I of course missed this cause my fat ass was waiting in line for food, which i never ended up getting because it was taking forever.
Back from intermission we get Jakob Hammermeier against Dragonfly. It was a quick and uneventful match, but Jakob is a german heel, and funny as all hell. He used the ropes to get the pinfall, in the quickest match of the night.
The next match may have been my favorite. Gran Akuma vs “The Handicapped Hero” Gregory Iron. For those of you who don’t know who Gregory Iron is, I will give you a quick run down. Gregory is a wrestler with cerebral palsy. He wrestles all over the United Sates. He was the man Colt Cabana and CM Punk celebrated in the ring a few months back after Punk had won the WWE Title and had “left” the company with it. This kind act got Gregory a ton of attention. Gregory’s cerebral palsy affect his right arm. He pretty much wrestles with one hand, but man does he know how to go. Him and Akuma put on an excellent show, with the stipulation that if Akuma loses he is out of Chikara. Icarus was the guest time keeper and with the ref knocked out he wrapped his fist in a chain and knocked out Akuma. Iron wouldn’t take the assist, so Icarus knocked out Iron’s as well. Once both men got there wits together, Akuma hit 3 powerbombs in a row for the win. Great match that left Gregory with a bloody nose.
Next we had another Woman vs Man match with Sara Del Rey taking on Kodama. Its not something I usually say, but damn can Sara wrestle, she looks better then a lot of guys in the ring. Kodama had the assist from the other guy who looks just like him(I didn’t catch his name) and Kobald. Sara just couldn’t keep her eyes on all 3 guys.
The main event was an 8 man tag match, that saw Eddie Kingston and the Colony take on GEKIDO. This match was fucking amazing. A ton of high flying action, lots of back and forth, and it told an amazing story. GEKIDO kept trying to take off the masks of the Colony, and in Chikara that is a huge NO NO. GEKIDO is an outside force that is attempting to run all over Chikara. I enjoyed seeing Eddie Kingston go, he is a beast, and the Colony is awesome. The end came when one of the Ants attempted to take off one of the GEKIDO’s mask. Well this back fired and cost team Chikara the match. Eddie Kingston and the Colony were extremely upset about losing this one to the GEKIDO, and hopefully this doesn’t doom the future of Chikara.
Overall it was a great show. If you like wrestling, you gotta check these guys out. The stories are great, the wrestling is great and its just a good time. You cheer the good guys and you boo the bad guys, its just fun. This show goes right up there with the Beyond Wrestling Show. Check these guys out next time they are in town and continue to support Indy Wrestling. Keep supporting the Shining Wizards Wrestling Podcast as well. Thank you all.

Results from CHIKARA: I’ll Be A Mummy’s Uncle
CHIKARA: I’ll Be A Mummy’s Uncle took place in New Jersey yesterday. Here are the results:
Ophidian defeated UltraMantis Black
Kobald defeated Saturyne
Johnny Gargano & Chuck Taylor F.I.S.T vs The Bravados vs QT Marshall & Jack Bonza vs The Maximos - F.I.ST won after eliminating all three opposing teams (Maximos, then Marhsll & Bonza, then the Bravados)
Mr Touchdown defeated Mixed Martial Archie (Archibald Peck) via DQ
Jigsaw defeated Tim Donst
Jakob Hammermeier defeated Dragonfly
Gran Akuma defeated Greg Iron
Sara Del Rey defeated Kodana
GEKIDO (The Shard, 17, combatANT& assailANT) defeated Eddie Kingston & The Colony (Fire Ant, Solider Ant & Green Ant)
Thoughts: A huge win for the new heels GEKIDO. I’m sticking to my theory that they are disguised Ring Of Honor wrestlers, so I really want to see them in action so I can work out who they are. If you attended the show, feel free to send a review to email@example.com and I’ll share it here.
Line up for CHIKARA: I’ll Be A Mummy’s Uncle
To quote the CHIKARA newsletter:
“A Special Afternoon Extravaganza in Conjunction with Jersey All-Pro!
The whole CHIKARA gang is playing New Jersey on Saturday, April 14th with a special 2:00 pm belltime! The card is filled to the brim with nine mega-matches featuring all your favorites! The card is now set, so here is what you can expect to see at the Rahway Rec Center on Saturday:”
The images were taken from http://www.chikarapro.com
Thoughts: Looks like another fun show from the CHIKARA crew. GEKIDO are the stable I suspect are disguised ROH wrestlers, and Eddie Kingston’s participation in that match backs up that suspicion. I can’t really guess who it is without seeing them in action, but I reckon two of them may be the Briscoes.
I’ll track down the JAPW line up either later today or tomorrow morning. If you attend either show (or both), be sure to send a review to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll share it here!
