Frightmare & Cometa de Oro vs. STIGMA & Klondike Kremlin

Oro’s strikes do not affect the much larger Kremlin. He sends up dropkicking him to the floor. Frightmare dropkicks STIGMA in the stomach and uses the ropes to pull off an armdrag. He headscissors STIGMA to the corner twice, then to the floor. Kremlin trips Frightmare to stop him from diving after him. Kremlin gets two with a suplex. He and STIGMA bully Frightmare in their corner. Frightmare hits Kremlin with an enzuigiri and tags in Oro. Oro throws overhand chops to both opponents. He and Frightmare keep sending Kremlin into STIGMA. Oro dropkicks STIGMA to the floor. Frightmare gives Kremlin a stunner. Oro dives after STIGMA. Frightmare hits Kneecolepsy on Kremlin for two. Kremlin stops his huracanrana and delivers a powerbomb. Kremlin then splashes onto him for the pin at 8:50. Pretty boring and sloppy. Frightmare and Oro ran circles around their opponents and end up with nothing to show for it. ½*

Chiva V vs. Hallowicked

Chiva is very proud of his armdrag. He uses his Mexican flag as a bullfighter’s red sheet, causing Hallowicked to charge and fall multiple times. Hallowicked shows off his strength by backing Chiva to the corner. He pulls on Chiva’s horns and throws him to the mat. Referee Jon Barber issues him a yellow card. He places a small toy soccer ball in the middle of the ring. Chiva pretends he is going to punt it, but instead dropkicks Hallowicked to the floor. He follows with a tope con hilo. Back in the ring Hallowicked hotshots Chiva on the top rope. He gets two with a bodyslam. Chiva gets Hallowicked on the apron and trips him so that his face hits the ring frame. He delivers some JYD headbutts back in the ring. Hallowicked forearms him in the corner. Chiva tries a comeback but gets a yakuza kick for his troubles. Once again he throws Chiva down by his mask. Chiva trips out his legs and from the floor hits a tiger feint kick. Hallowicked catches him coming out of the corner with Go 2 Sleepy Hollow for two! Chiva throws his face into the corner. He hops in from the apron with a second rope legdrop. Hallowicked kicks out. He goes for a superkick. Hallowicked blocks and goes for another Go 2 Sleepy Hollow. Chiva counters with a dragonscrew leg whip. A moonsault gets Chiva the win at 11:22. Out of all the Chiva matches I’ve seen, the two on the secret shows have far and away been the best. This was a lot of fun to watch and I actually think Chiva would have served well as a singles competitor in CHIKARA. ***

Even in front of 20 people they had a great match, though some contrived stuff knocks this down a few points. ***¼

Quackenbush submits at 27:54 but the kick to the groin has resulted in a DQ making the Tecnicos the winners? I don’t understand Lucha rules at all, apparently, and the action was mostly nonsense outside of the times when Quackenbush was in the ring with either Navarro or Claudio. **

I don’t speak Spanish fluently, but given my little knowledge I believe Quackenbush challenged Navarro to a title vs. hair match after the bell.

    Lucha tag rules usually mean that there’s a team captain, and if the team captain is pinned, the fall or match is automatically over. The fall/match is also over if the other two guys who aren’t the captain are both pinned.
