Kids Eat Free On Tuesdays

3.20.2004 – Emmaus, PA

I believe this is the first show ever recorded and produced by Smart Mark Video. The video quality is a trillion times better than Mike Skillz’s company who recorded the 2002/2003 CHIKARA events. There is no commentary on the show; that would come in 2005.

Private Eye & Shane Storm vs. Darkness Crabtree & Phantasmo

This is Shane Storm’s debut match. Eye throws Phantasmo back in two lock-ups. Phantasmo tries to poke Eye’s eye. Eye gives him an Atomic drop and a Manhattan drop. Eye slams him. Crabtree tags in as does Storm. Crabtree sends Storm to the corner. He misses some offense and accidentally clubs Storm’s hard hat. Storm stomps on his hands and his foot. Storm takes him down with a clothesline and tags in Eye. Phantasmo attacks Eye from behind. Phantasmo splashes Eye and whips Eye to the corner. Crabtree looks to come in, but Storm puts up his STOP sign. Storm throws down Crabtree in a wheelbarrow. Crabtree hits a sweater assisted pedigree on Storm. Crabtree snapmares Storm and kicks him in the back. Crabtree drops an elbow for two. Crabtree continues to pummel Storm until Storm sunset flips him for the pin at 4:27. Storm didn’t look too bad for his debut match. Eye and Phantasmo are really bad though, but I can’t hate on Private Eye ever. ½*

Joker {BO} vs. Sabian {BO}

Joker uses the ropes to try to get the advantage on the mat. Sabian however seems to keep most of the control on Joker’s arm. Joker knocks Sabian down with a shoulder tackle. Both guys hit armdrags and stereo shoulder tackles. Back and forth these guys go, with Joker dropping Sabian with a hard back breaker for two. Joker stretches Sabian’s back over his knees. Sabian tries a wheelbarrow, but Joker sits-out so that Sabian’s back bends over his shoulder. Sabian comes back and applies a Dragon Sleeper. Joker grabs the ropes to break. Joker drops Sabian across his shoulders from a torture rack position. Joker looks for a crucifix bomb but Sabian escapes. Joker tosses Sabian overhead. Joker hits a running knee strike to Sabian’s face. Sabian gives Joker a drop toe hold, and dropkicks Joker in the face to the floor. Sabian looks to throw Joker into the crowd, but instead throws him back in the ring. Joker chops Sabian, and Sabian responds with some of his own. Joker blasts Sabian with a hard chop that sends him to the mat. Sabian is popped up and dropkicks Joker. He gives Joker a bridging German suplex for two. Sabian misses a twisting senton from the top rope. Joker looks for the Joker Driver, but Sabian victory rolls through for two. Joker and Sabian trade pinfall attempts. Sabian dropkicks Joker’s legs out and pins him for two. Sabian heads up top and Joker crotches him. Sabian kicks Joker away. Sabian comes off the ropes, and Joker catches him with the Joker Driver for the pin at 13:26. This was a really impressive showcase. I did not expect this level of match out of either guy and quite frankly I was really impressed. Both guys came back and after seeing this match I can see why. **3/4

Mike Quackenbushcomes out with the four titles he currently holds: the wXw Lightweight Championship, the IPW Intercontinental Lightweight Championship, AULL Mexican Middlewieght Championship, and IPW Crusierweight Championship (which he just won the night before against Hallowicked). The winner of this upcoming gauntlet gets a shot to win every single one of those belts next month at CHIKARA’s April 9th event.

Mike Quackenbush’s International Crown – #1 Contendership Gauntlet

The times given for each match are accumulated, not the time for each individual match.

UltraMantis goes over ZERO and chop blocks his leg. UltraMantis applies a figure four leg lock and grabs the ropes to apply more pressure behind the referee’s back. ZERO submits at 8:13.

Skittlez chases UltraMantis around the ring. When they get in, UltraMantis drops a trifecta of elbows on Skittlez. Skittlez clotheslines UltraMantis in the corner. Skittlez takes UltraMantis over with a sloppy headscissors. Skittlez spins out UltraMantis into a face buster for the pin at 13:12.

After this, Mantis pushes Skittlez off the top rope to the floor. He throws Skittlez back in as Jigsaw enters.

He tries a second but Jigsaw gives him an enzugiri. He then hits the Jig N’ Tonic for the pin at 22:41. This whole gauntlet was fine overall. Skittlez sucked, but the crowd was into him. They built up to UltraMantis’ heel turn next month and got Jigsaw over as a big student. He’ll main event the next show with Quack. **1/4

Young Lions Cup Qualifier
Jolly Roger vs. Rorschach

Believe it or not, these guys had this exact match at CHIKARA’s last show in which Jolly Roger won. Why this is happening again, I don’t know. Rorschach and Roger start off with some Lucha, and Roger almost slips and hurts himself attempting a rope-assisted armdrag. Roger doublestomps Rorschach in the corner and drags him out for a two count. Roger twists Rorschach in a Muta Lock. Roger monkey flips Rorschach to the floor and follows with a dive. Rorschach throws Roger face first into the ring post. Rorschach slams Roger and gives him a legdrop for two. Rorschach chokes Roger on the mat. Roger slaps Rorschach in the face to escape. Rorschach looks for the Rorschach Lock but can’t get in sinched in. Roger O’Conner rolls Rorschach for two, and Rorschach pushes him to the floor. Rorschach comes at him with a tope con hilo. Rorschach keeps on Roger back in the ring. Roger tries to wheelbarrow up, but Rorschach drops him face first on the mat. Roger whips Rorschach to the corner and then gives him a sit-out hip toss. Roger hits a spinwheel kick and a jumping back elbow for two. Roger takes Rorschach down with a satellite headscissors for two. Rorschach powerbombs Roger as he attempts a hurricanarana and gets a two count. Rorschach hits two fisherman’s suplexes for two. Rorschach misses a splash. Roger hits Walk The Plank for two. Roger hits an arm-capture belly-to-belly suplex for two. Roger takes Rorschach off the top rope with a wheelbarrow facebuster called “It Came From The Sea” for the pin at 12:58. So this had the same result as last show and was just as bad. Why did I have to see these two wrestle twice? Ugh. *

Eddie Kingston comes out with his partners and says they’re the franchise players of this company. He says he will take F.I.S.T’s and Quackenbush’s pride here tonight.

Kingston cuts a promo afterward, making Gran Akuma’s kid cry. A really sad sight to be sure.
