Hello everyone, hope you all have had a great weekend, I know I have as I attended last night’s CHIKARA Internet PPV from the Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia, PA.
To say that this was a good show is a vast understatement because this show was outstanding from top to bottom. Every match delivered and then some and to me, it was well worth the $25 to see this show live.
There are shows where a crowd can make a bad show decent, a solid show good and a good show great. Well the crowd last night in Philly made the show from outstanding to awesome. They were into every single thing thrown at them and never died down from the opening match to the main event. From many “YES” chants to many “CHIKARA” chants to “Holy Poop” chants to chants for the different wrestlers to hell, even some “Chicken Cheesesteaks” chants thrown in, this crowd wanted to see some good wrestling and was there to have fun and IMO, CHIKARA gave them that fun 110%. Very few promotions can have a show where the crowd is there with them throughout the entire show and CHIKARA brought it ten-fold last night with good match after good match.
To sum it all up, this show last night showed me why I love pro wrestling and have since I was 4 years old. To those who have never seen CHIKARA or have heard about it through my show, the Independent Roundtable (cheap plug there), please BUY THE REPLAY. It is well worth the $15 cost on GFL, which I did hear the stream was pretty much perfect throughout, so that is great to have happen for CHIKARA.
With that, let’s go onto the results of last night’s show to close things up on this live report, shall we?
1. Grudge Match: “The Devious One” Ultra Mantis Black defeated “The Snake” Ophidian by pinfall with the Praying Mantis Bomb (Double Underhook Piledriver)
