Baile, Parka, Baile

This is the name of a VHS release from CHIKARA that features its two shows from June of 2002. Only two matches are available today from that tape on the Best of 2002 compilation. These are those two matches.

Mike Quackenbush {BTS} & Reckless Youth {BTS} vs. La Parka & Mister ZERO

Quackenbush brings Parka back in the ring and hits a frog splash. Quackenbush picks up a chair and accidentally hits Youth. Parka hits Quackenbush with the chair and the referee calls for the disqualification at 22:16. What a colossal waste of time. Everything was going fine and dandy, but then out of literally nowhere Parka and ZERO start arguing? And why did I have to wait 22 minutes for that finish? Parka got sloppy by the end and clearly didn’t care to work too hard to add a lot. Of course, Parka had to stand above EVERYONE else on the chair to end the match. Thankfully this was the only time La Parka was in CHIKARA. *

Allentown, PA – 6.21.2002

Mike Quackenbush {BTS}, Reckless Youth {BTS}, Don Montoya {BTS}, & UltraMantis vs. Blind Rage {NS}, Hallowicked {NS}, Ichabod Slayne {NS}, & Mister ZERO

For weeks now, the Night Shift had been breaking Jack-O-Lanterns over the heads of the Black T-Shirt Squad to win their matches. It was revealed that Mister ZERO became their business supplier after receiving an over shipment of jack-o-lanterns. This is why this match has come about. ZERO talks about his previous teammates such as Zane Madrox and La Parka didn’t work out. To make sure he could tell the difference between the Night Shift members, he gives them name tags. The BTS come out with nametags as well, and reveal UltraMantis to be their partner (instead of the match being a four-on-three encounter as advertised).

Slayne and Montoya start off. They trade wristlocks. Montoya blocks an O’Connor Roll. Slayne slaps Montoya in the corner. Slayne brings Montoya back to the corner and slaps him again. Montoya gives him a slap, then a hip toss after a ropes sequence. Mantis comes in and trades hammerlocks. They too trade wrist and hammerlocks. Mantis hip tosses Hallowicked as well as an armdrag. Youth and Rage tag in. They go back and forth with drop downs and leapfrogs. Youth gives Rage a hip toss. Quackenbush and ZERO tag in and feel each other out. Quackenbush takes him down with an armdrag into an armbar. ZERO forearms Quackenbush and kicks him in the shoulder blades. Quackenbush retaliates with the same. They trade overhand chops. Quackenbush sends ZERO to the floor and fakes a dive as ZERO moves out of the way. Slayne and Montoya come in. Slayne accidentally crotches himself on the ropes, and Montoya gives him a spinwheel kick for two. Slayne takes him over with a hurricanrana. Montoya spins Slayne into a powerslam. Slayne tags in Hallowicked who calls out UltraMantis. Mantis beats on Hallowicked in the corner. Mantis gives Hallowicked a pair of slams before he tags in Blind Rage. Reckless Youth comes in and takes a drop toe hold into the corner. Youth takes Rage down with a headscissors. Rage blocks a hip toss and gives Youth a lariat. Youth lands a dropkick. ZERO and Quackenbush come in. Quackenbush takes ZERO over with a figure eight headscissors. ZERO locks in an abdominal stretch. The Nigth Shift link hands with ZERO to maximize leverage. Quackenbush escapes and brings ZERO to his corner. They do the same thing, but link hands with the fans as well to make it even more effective. ZERO escapes and hip tosses Quackenbush over. ZERO gives Quackenbush a hot shot on the top rope, giving the Rudos the opportunity to isolate him in their corner. Quackenbush floats over a double suplex and tags in everyone. The Tecnicos run roughshod for awhile on ZERO and the Night Shift. A chain of submissions forms between everyone but Mantis. Mantis looks for a body part but can’t. Mantis therefore goes to the apron and waits for a tag. The Rudos all get cradled for four collective two counts. The ring is cleared to ZERO and Montoya. Montoya hits the Miracle Ecstacy for two. ZERO elbows Montoya and lands a tornado DDT. He applies the newspaper assisted camel clutch. Mantis breaks it up. Mantis hits Rage with the Tiger Driver for two. Rage hits Mantis with the Michinoku Driver Beta with Quackenbush breaks up. Quackenbush rams his shoulder into Slayne. He beings Slayne up top. Slayne pushes him off and lands a Diamond Dust for two. Quackenbush gives Slayne a Manhattan Drop and a Tiger Bomb for two. Slayne fakes he’s been low blowed, so Quackenbush throws him to the floor. Hallowicked comes and and gets mauled by Youth and Montoya. They hit a two man elevated DDT. Youth calls for the Northern Lights 2k1 Bomb, and Slayne blasts him in the back of the head with a jack-o-lantern. Hallowicked pins Youth for the win at 24:01. This was as fun as the trios match they had on the second show between the BTS and Night Shift. ZERO and Mantis added in a positive manner to make it better as well. Everyone looked as if they’d improved since the first month of shows as well. ***
