Archibald Peck vs. Jimmy Jacobs from Chikara 2014


Originally reviewed here.

Story of the Match: Much like the other matches involving The Flood, Jacobs was 100% hated by the crowd. Marchie Archie was obviously beloved, and this is his first match since Eddie Kingston sent him back in time (again). The match was very basic in structure, but the crowd added a lot to the proceedings. The finish was a near-disaster though, as one of the masked goons was late to hitting Peck with an illegal object. Interference like that needs to be super smooth in order to not make the babyface look like an idiot. On top of that, Jacobs got his victory directly from the interference.

Analysis: Once again, the enjoyment and satisfaction of the match is completely hampered by the apparent need to continue a storyline. This Flood storyline is really making this Chikara return show feel a lot less fun.

Match Rating: **1/2
