Sergio here, Cagesiders.
The Ustream pre-show is up and running and we've got the folks at Chikara taking a look at what to expect. The video from a few days ago with Gregory Iron stating his case to be a part of the 2012 Royal Rumble.
Back to the ECW Arena and Iron steps out from backstage to speak with our hosts. He says Icarus has been running his mouth a lot lately and calling Iron a liar. Iron promises to shut Icarus up for good tonight.
Video highlighting the feud between UltraMantis Black and Hallowicked with Die Bruderschaft des Kreuzes (BDK). "Blame Game" by Kayne West plays over footage of the wrestlers intercut with scens from Un Chien Andalou. This gets three thumbs up from me.
Next Tim Donst and Jakob Hammermeier of BDK comes out with the former Young Lions Cup champ regales us with a song. Hilarious stuff here with Donst signing that he "doesn't like getting punched in the face because he's too good looking."
"Who's the man? I'm the man. That's the answer to who's the man!" Donst is fantastic.
They then show the amazing promo Eddie Kingston recorded earlier this.
And we are uuuuuuderway.
Jigsaw vs. El Generico
They lock up and Generico gets behind his opponent. Jigsaw reverses into a wristlock and works Generico over. Reversal into a headlock takedown is countered with a headscissors by Jigsaw. Generico takes control with a headlock.
MetroPCS commercial! Sorry, bucko, I use T-Mobile.
We're back and the two are working a feverish pace. Generico flipping and bouncing off the ropes and nailing Jigsaw with arm drags and then gets some punches in the corner much to the delight of the crowd. A punch to the gut and a couple of elbows put Jigsaw back in the driver's seat. He bounces off the ropes and catches Generico mid-leap frog and drops him face first onto the mat.
A boot from Jigsaw sends Generico to the outside and he follows suit with a suicide dive. Back inside the ring with the "Mexican" luchadore against the ropes. Jigsaw charges and Generico outwits him by th
Jigsaw catches the Yakuza kick, nails a back elbow, following up with an enziguri and then ending the sequence off with a German suplex for a two count. Jigsaw rushes into the corner but is unable to stop a second Yakuza kick attempt. Generico hops up onto the top rope but gets pulled down and eats mat. Fire Under the Bridge -- a coast to coast dropkick -- gets a two count for Jigsaw.
Generico is able to whip Jigsaw into the corner and a third and possibly match-ending Olé Kick but gets superkicked for his trouble. Jigsaw hops up to the top and hits the Double Stuff -- a double stomp -- for the three count, picking up the win.
Fun, fun match.

Matt drops Soldier down, Nick leaps but gets a belly full of knee. Matt, already on the top rope and jumping, doesn't realize it and slams hard into the canvas as Soldier rolled out of the way.

Green Ant breaks the hold and then busts out a submission I've never seen before -- somewhat of a variation on the Chikara Special -- and gets the big man to tap!

"War King" is presented with the title in a very emotional ceremony. He's in tears as the crowd chants Larry Sweeney's name.
Kingston holds the belt up and looks towards the heavens. He says he promised the best wrestling product (emphasis on wrestling) today. He says that anyone from New York, anyone from "that piece of crap in Florida" can come to Philly. Be it CM Punk, John Cena, or AJ Styles, no one touched Chikara.
Fantastic show. If you didn't get a chance to get it live, order the replay as soon as you can. $15 for a great wrestling show? Sounds damn good to me.
