King of Trios 2008 Night I


Philadelphia, PA – 2.29.2008

Commentary is provided by Bryce Remsburg, Eddie Kingston, Louden Noxious, Leonard F. Chikarason, Mitch Ryder, Jimmy Olsen, and UltraMantis Black.

Shane Hagadorn doesn’t feel the need to introduce his team because if you don’t know them by now, you have not been paying attention. They’re representing the best wrestling company on the planet, Ring of Honor. Tonight they have to go through a team of goats. Rhett Titus says he’s going to grab the goats by their antlers and milk them. Alex Payne and Hagadorn look confused. Payne sets Titus straight. He says they will be the best representatives for Ring of Honor and win the whole tournament.

King of Trios 2008 First Round Match
Chiva II, Chiva III & Chiva IV vs. Shane Hagadorn {ROH}, Rhett Titus {ROH} & Alex Payne {ROH}

“Breathe” by Pink Floyd is a fantastic entrance theme choice. III does some dancing with referee PJ Drummond. Titus tries the same but gets smacked on the bottom by III. Titus puts him in a headscissors. III escapes and snaps off an armdrag. He snapmares Titus into a basement dropkick. Payne and II tag in. II puts him in a Gory Stretch. III and IV stomp and senton Payne before II drops him in a Gory Catapult. IV takes a picture of Titus while he’s tied up. Hagadorn and Titus dispose of the other Chiva’s, leaving IV to be tyrannized in the ROH corner. Hagadorn goes for a running boot in the corner but ends up hitting Titus. IV manages to tag in III who lays out Titus and Payne with calf kicks. III rolls Payne into an arm and neck stretch. Hagadorn breaks it up. He kicks III out of the corner and Graham Crackers him. II breaks the pin. Titus drops II with a neckbreaker, then transitions into the Last Chancery. III breaks it with an elbow drop. He gives Payne a lung blower off the second rope. Hagadorn makes the save. He gets sent out with an enzuigiri and Titus is backdropped onto him. II and III try a double suplex or something but botch it up. IV hits a super pretty moonsault for the pin at 11:21. Some awkward spots and flubs aside (mostly from the ROH team) this was fine. Las Chivas are a hit with the crowd and pulled out some really cool stuff. It could have been stronger but I had a fun time watching this. **

Team El Dorado are in the back. Although they are representing El Dorado, as you can tell by their faction IDs, they’re all freelancers with different schools/backgrounds. Go and Mototsugu Shimizu speak in Japanese. Michael Nakazawa says they are going to smash The Colony like bugs. Team El Dorado is going to prove just how strong they are.

King of Trios 2008 First Round Match
Fire Ant {C}, Soldier Ant {C} & Worker Ant {C} vs. Michael Nakazawa {DDT}, Mototsugu Shimizu {T2P} & Go {DG}

Fire Ant takes down Shimizu with a hiponesa. Shimizu responds with one of his own. Fire Ant trips him and headscissors him to the ropes. Shimizu hits him with double knife-edge chops. Go and Soldier Ant tag in. Go rakes Soldier Ant’s eyes after resisting his shoulder tackles. Go gets kicked in the gut after becoming annoyed with Soldier Ant’s saluting. Soldier Ant suplexes him for two and hits a monkey flip. Nakazawa oils himself up upon tagging in. Worker Ant can’t get a grip on a lock up. He uses a towel for traction but Nakazawa maneuvers himself free. He applies a wrist lock and rubs his posterior and groin on Worker Ant’s arm. Go and Shimizu clear the apron so Worker Ant can be isolated. Eddie Kingston ponders Go’s name on commentary: “Go where? Denny’s?” Nakazawa puts on so much oil that he slips off Worker Ant when trying a DDT. Go and Shimizu however knock Fire and Soldier Ant off again and keep on Worker Ant. Worker Ant catches Shimizu with a single leg dropkick and neckbreaker. Fire Ant tags in throwing forearms for all. With the El Dorado team on the floor, the Colony Antapult Fire Ant onto them. Fire Ant gets a two count on Nakazawa. Nakazawa hits a running elbow smash and a spinebuster for two. Same goes for the Angle Slam thanks to Soldier Ant breaking it up. He sends Nakazawa out. Go hits a clothesline. Soldier Ant responds with a rolling forearm but is then taken down by a spear. Go hits the Go to Heck lariat. Worker Ant breaks the cover and pitches Go out. Shimizu kicks Worker Ant’s leg out. He gives him a leg-capture Gourd Buster and a dropkick to the crown of the head. Fire Ant makes the save. Go tosses Fire Ant into a gut buster from Shimizu. Nakazawa gives him the Angle Slam for two. Nakazawa accidentally spits oil into his partner’s eyes. Soldier and Worker Ant send Go and Shimizu out. The Ant Hill gets the Colony the pin on Nakazawa at 13:44. The El Dorado team blended really well with the Colony. Nakazawa brought the humor (and some solid wrestling) while the other’s carried their weight during the beat down. The winner was obvious but the other team put up a heck of a fight anyway. Kingston and Bryce’s commentary was priceless. **¾

The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple are standing by. UltraMantis Black says they’re faced with the Sea Amigos from Kaiju Big Battel. Despite never facing the Sea Amigos, Mantis knows their weaknesses. He claims they will be finished!

Kaiju ring announcer Louden Noxious introduces the Sea Amigos. If you’re watching the show and are not familiar with Kaiju, seeing three giant rubber sea monsters is a trip. Call-Me-Kevin is the current Kaiju Grand Champion. The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple then comes out. Mantis remains on the stage while Hydra and Crossbones make their way ringside. Mantis says they have never faced a team more strange than the Sea Amigos. Since Mantis has friends in high places, he enlisted someone to help him out; Dr. Cube! Dr. Cube takes a selfie (before that was really a thing) with himself and Mantis. Cube calls Kevin a sham of a Kaiju champion. He presents Mantis with Kevin’s Achilles heel; Tartar sauce! He assures Mantis that with the sauce he will be victorious. They give quite the evil laugh before parting ways. Hydra and Crossbones jump the Sea Amigos from behind.

King of Trios 2008 First Round Match
Call-Me-Kevin {KBB}, Unibouzu {KBB} & D.W. Cycloptopuss III {KBB} vs. UltraMantis Black {ONT}, Hydra {ONT} & Crossbones {ONT}

Crossbones pokes Cycloptopuss in the eye after disposing of Kevin and Unibouzu. He continues poking at the eye and drives his elbow into Cycloptopuss’ head. He blocks Crossbones’ running back elbow but misses a second rope dropkick. Crossbones dropkicks Cycloptopuss to the floor. He brings Kevin to the corner where Mantis chokes him with his boot. He delivers a headbutt and a pair of elbow drops. Some Mongolian chops and a headbutt take Kevin off of his feet. Hydra gives Kevin his own Mongolian chops. Unibouzu comes in when Kevin rolls out. Unibouzu’s spikes make it hard for Hydra to apply the Hydralock. Crossbones kicks him in the side of the head. He lands a top rope splash but it does major damage to his stomach. Cycloptopuss tags in. He spins around so his claws and tentacles can knock down the Order. All the Sea Amigos land punches and strikes in the corner. Cycloptopuss and Unibouzu have Crossbones and Hydra in submissions. Kevin misses a moonsault. Mantis sprays all of the Amigos with Tartar Sauce which stuns them. Mantis hits Kevin with the Praying Mantis Bomb for the pin at 5:24. That was quite the scene and made me feel like I may have been on drugs. The wrestling was what it was but it definitely didn’t overstay it’s welcome. I adore Dr. Cube more than I can express. *

Amasis alerts us that 2008 is the year of the snake, which for the Portal is a good omen. They traveled back in time to enlist Mecha Mummy for their team. Amasis says Shane Storm is impressive, but he and Ophidian defeated him and Jigsaw in their debut. He questions Skayde’s dancing abilities. He knows Mike Quackenbush has won numerous titles and tournaments, but he won’t win King of Trios. Ophidian and Mecha Mummy say they can dig it; can we?

King of Trios 2008 First Round Match

Skayde no longer wrestles with his mask on. He works over Ophidian’s left arm. Ophidian takes him down with a wristdrag. Skayde goes back to the arm.

Amasis jumps up to avoid some offense leading to another stand off. Quackenbush and Mummy tag in. Quackenbush’s shoulder blocks do nothing. Mummy gives him a big boot and does the Hogan taunt. He misses a legdrop. Quackenbush arm whips him overhead and dropkicks him to the floor. He follows with a tope con hilo. Storm gets hypnotized by Ophidian. Mummy knocks him down with a clothesline.

Mummy misses a tackle, going out to the floor. Skayde dives off the top onto him. Quackenbush gives Ophidian a Backpack Stunner for two. The Quackendriver II gets him the win at 14:22. Watching Quackenbush wrestle Mecha Mummy made this match worthwhile. It was awesome seeing the Portal going toe to toe with people like Skayde and Quackenbush, making a name for themselves even in a loss. Really good action with a great finish. ***

Brodie Lee is in the back. Jimmy Olsen is happy when he approaches Brodie. Brodie wants to know why he is so happy when they’re walking into a trios fight with just two people. He hates that Chikarason is going to put them with a random partner. Jimmy seems to believe that Colin Olsen will still show up, but Brodie knows better. Brodie and Colin represent Team Dr. Keith. As Brodie expected, they chose a new partner at random from a ball tumbler, operated by Dr. Keith Lipinski himself. Colin Delaney’s name is drawn but PJ Drummond alerts us that he is not here. Jimmy and Brodie don’t know who he is anyways. Johnny Kashmere’s name is drawn. PJ goes looking for him in the Men’s bathroom but it turns out he’s not here either. Retail Dragon is the next name drawn. He is here and will fill in for Colin Olsen. Brodie and Jimmy are not pleased.

Olsen applies a headlock. KZ shoots him off and snaps off an armdrag and hip toss. Lee tags in. He screams at KZ causing him to hit the floor. Cheech armdrags Lee. He tries a Frankensteiner.

Cheech and Cloudy dropkick Olsen and Lee out. Dragon eats Partly Cloudy with a chance of Cheech and Death by Knee. KZ follows with KZ Time for the pin at 14:11. Cheech and Cloudy typically work magic with the Olsens and Brodie and this was no different. Although it’s a shame Colin couldn’t work the show, they made a good story out of Dragon being the makeshift partner. KZ more than held up his end too. Really good stuff aside from one big flub. After the match, Lee gives Dragon a big boot for his troubles. ***

Team IPW-UK (Martin Stone, Sha Samuels & Derek Frazier) are in the back. Stone says they’ve made it to the “dance”, but they aren’t here to dance; they have business to take care off. Samuels says they didn’t fly halfway across the world to lose in the first round. Frazier says that the fact of the matter is that they’re taking home the gold.

This was the sleeper hit of the evening. Coming into the match I wasn’t terribly familiar with anyone but Drake, but both trios provided one heck of a fight, unlike anything else seen in the opening round thus far. Some of the momentum was lost towards the end but I really enjoyed watching them fight around the ring and in the crowd as it played to everyone’s strengths. The UK team being incredibly charismatic helps as well. ***

King of Trios 2008 Second Round Match
Chiva II, Chiva III & Chiva IV vs. Fire Ant {C}, Soldier Ant {C} & Worker Ant {C}

A picture with all six participants turns into a headlock chain, then a headscissors chain. One of the Chivas turns everyone over into a big Boston Crab. Fire Ant grabs the ropes. All six competitors playing ring around the rosey around Bryce. Bryce gets angry and sets them straight. He feels bad for spoiling the fun and apologizes. They all hug him in forgiveness. IV gives Soldier Ant an armdrag, but Soldier Ant gives him a Samoan Drop. The Colony take turns attacking him. IV’s head is so hard though that any maneuvers to it hurt the Colony.

He gives him a Beach Break off the second rope for the pin at 11:23. This was really disjointed. It never felt like the action went anywhere or that the crowd really cared for any of it outside the silly stuff in the beginning. Fire Ant’s second rope Beach Break was really cool but there is nothing else memorable about this match. **

Vin Gerard is shown wandering down the aisle and around the building at the end of the match.

BLK Out are in the back. They’re the first of four teams to get a bye into the second round. Ruckus says the reason they’re here is to become the 2008 King of Trios. Duh. Joker is looking to put 2007 in the past. They will do whatever it takes to win. Eddie Kingston says he’s been telling everyone for months now that they’re the best team to ever come into CHIKARA. Whenever he says something, he backs it up. So when he tells you that he’s going to run through the tournament, you can put it on your life.

King of Trios 2008 Second Round Match

Skayde rolls KZ up into the Jorge Special for the pin at 12:47. KZ’s style lends itself to being able to match up to guys like Quackenbush and Skayde and it was a joy seeming him do just that. It took some time to get through the contrived sequences in the beginning (so. many. armdrags), but after that it was really smooth and fun. ***

King of Trios 2008 Second Round Match
Delirious {I}, Hallowicked {I} & Helios vs. Martin Stone, Sha Samuels & Derek Frazier

The Golden Trio are the second of four teams to get a bye into the second round. Of course, they have this namesake since they are CHIKARA’s champions. Delirious freaks out at the bell.

The IPW-UK guys got to wrestle some of CHIKARA’s finest in a completely different style than they did with the Naptown Dragons.The last few minutes were really exciting with a pinfall seemingly able to come to fruition at any time. It’s a shame the UK guys never made their way back to CHIKARA (in the US, anyways) because they were one of my favorite teams of the entire tournament. ***¼
