Sidney Bakabella says no matter where his Wrecking Crew goes, they’re victorious. He guarantees victory for the Devastation Corporation tonight.

Elimination Match
Obariyon {B} & Kodama {B} vs. Ashley Remington & Jervis Cottonbelly vs. Max Smashmaster {DC} & Blaster McMassive {DC} vs. The Proletariat Boar of Moldova {BP} & Prakash Sabar {BP}

Kodama armdrags Sabar thrice and dropkicks him to the ropes. He slips out of Kodama’s side headlock. McMassive comes in and Kodama shoves him into Sabar’s headlock. McMassive shoulder blocks him to the floor. He scares Cottonbelly with a scream. However, Remington helps Cottonbelly put McMassive in a crucifix pin for two. Boar catches Cottonbelly with a big boot. Boar side slams Cottonbelly. Obariyon sends Boar out with a flying forearm. Remington gets the ropes to escape a waistlock. Remington ducks Smashmaster’s punch and lays in some chops. Smashmaster slaps Remington after getting finger banged. Cottonbelly gets in Smashmaster’s face. Remington holds him back. McMassive attacks him, leading to a brawl with all four teams. Remington assists the Batiri with suicide dives onto the Devastation Corporation. The Batiri learn how to hug from Cottonbelly and Remington. The Corporation and Bloc Party attack. Sabar Irish whips Cottonbelly into a Gore from the Boar, eliminating him and Remington at 7:35. The Bloc Party take turns beating down Kodama. He evades Sabar’s Bronco Buster and tags in Obariyon. The Batiri hit Sabar with a modified Seventh Circle for the pin and elimination at 11:16. The Corporation wastes no time attacking and isolating Obariyon. Obariyon slides off of Smashmaster’s shoulders and shoves him into McMassive. Kodama clobbers Smashmaster’s chest with forearms and chops. He dropkicks Smashmaster to the ropes. Smashmaster eats the Skull Bronzing for two. McMassive big boots Obariyon but misses Kodama. McMassive catches Kodama’s crossbody attempt. The Death Blow get the Devastation Corporation the win and their third point at 14:22. Some of the action came off as contrived and mis-timed, but overall it was a solid match. It was a mistake eliminating Remington and Cottonbelly first, as they were by far the most over and entertaining team. It did a fine job setting up a title match for the Finale, as Hatfield was on commentary…though that did telegraph the main event, come to think of it. **¼

Hallowicked {SE} vs. Worker Ant {C}

Hallowicked’s courting hold leads to a pin exchange. They exchange wristlocks. Worker Ant turns his into a side headlock. Hallowicked applies a headscissors, then a hammerlock. Worker Ant whips him to the corner. Hallowicked rolls him into a key lock and hooks the arms. Worker Ant grabs the ropes to escape. He snapmares Hallowicked into a chin lock. After some posturing, Worker Ant elbows Hallowicked down twice for a two count. Hallowicked blocks a bicycle kick and sweeps out Worker Ant’s legs for two. He puts on an armbar and a straightjacket choke. Worker Ant maneuvers his way out of it. He goes for a back suplex, but Hallowicked counters with an inside cradle for two. Hallowicked applies a cravate. He snapmares Worker Ant into a front facelock. Worker Ant escapes. Hallowicked schoolboys him for two. He also gets two with a seatbelt pin. He applies a chinlock then picks the ankle. Worker Ant gets on a side headlock. He then back suplexes Hallowicked. He back elbows him in the corner and bicycle kicks him in the gut for two. Worker Ant calls for the GTS. Hallowicked slips out. He bodyscissors Worker Ant into a modified prawn hold for the pin at 9:54. I appreciate what they tried to do with keeping this match as a hold-for-hold encounter as opposed to a brawl or slugfest, but the truth is Worker Ant isn’t a technical match for Hallowicked and thus the match suffered because of it. They told a solid story with Worker Ant “hanging” with a veteran but it could have been more satisfying if Worker Ant were more seasoned. **¼

Soldier Ant sneaks in and chop blocks Worker Ant’s knee out. He runs away to escape an attack from Hallowicked or retaliation from Worker Ant.

Shynron vs. Nøkken {BDK}

Jakob Hammermeier, Milo Schnitzler, and Slaash are in Nøkken’s corner. Shynron’s kick to Nøkken’s legs have no effect. He throws rapid fire palm strikes and a thrust kick to his stomach.

Slaash distracts the referee while Hammermeier blasts Shynron with a haymaker. Nøkken powerslams Shynron into a reverse DDT for the pin at 8:45. These two had a fun big man/little man dynamic. Shynron continues to impress and be one of my favorites to watch in CHIKARA. The finish was somewhat deflating. I get trying to keep Shynron strong, but really would he look any weaker losing to someone twice his size, if not more? **½

Milo Schnitzler celebrates the win. Jakob, sick of him, sicks Slaash onto him. Slaash tries the Burning Snicklefritz but ends up dropping Schnitzler awkwardly. Slaash’s mask came off during the move, and it turns out to be Pinkie Sanchez! He hits Schnitzler with a Shining Wizard as the crowd welcomes him back. Sanchez says he doesn’t need their welcome. Jakob says Schnitzler’s been a failure since day one, effectively ending his BDK affiliation. It’s great to see Sanchez back in a CHIKARA ring.

Jimmy Jacobs comes out to the ring. He’s wearing the trophies of the casualties of the war, including the masks of all the guys Deucalion has killed from the CHIKARA’s side.

Deucalion accepts the match, saying it will be a massacre. He tells Jacobs to make it happen. Jacobs says it will happen on December 6th and that there will be nowhere for anyone to run. Deucalion, Jacobs, and the Flood leave. Icarus says CHIKARA will win on December 6th.

Jaka covers, but Amasis kicks out! Ophidian bicycle kicks Oleg. He rolls Amasis to the corner to tag in. Jaka goes for the Jumanji Bomb. Ophidian counters with a Frankensteiner. He spin kicks Oleg and drives double knees into Jaka thrice. He goes up top. Oleg follows. Amasis tornado kicks Oleg and gives Jaka a spinebuster. Ophidian comes off the top with double knees to Jaka. The Portal bring Oleg down with a Pyramid suplex for the pin at 14:03. This was excellent back and forth wrestling with a good story. Them calling back to Bakabella’s spot in King of Trios was satisfying. Jaka and Oleg make for one heck of a Rudo duo and I hope they get more opportunities. ***

UltraMantis Black says tonight Jimmy Jacobs will sit at the grown up’s table, but he will not like what Mantis plans to serve up.

Eddie Kingston vs. Lithuanian Snow Troll {TF}

A release Regalplex gets him two. The Troll grabs Mantis’ leg, allowing Jacobs to spear him for the pin at 5:10. This was just starting to heat up when it ended. Jacobs winning with a spear also didn’t come off as very believable. The action was fine while it lasted, but this had so much potential and fell significantly short of expectations. **

A nice surprise. ***
