Old Fashioned (Jervis Cottonbelly & Marion Fontaine) vs. Los Ice Creams (El Hijo del Ice Cream & Ice Cream, Jr.) from Chikara 2014


Originally reviewed here.

Story of the Match: This marks the Chikara debut for the Old Fashioned team. There were some extended pre-match shenanigans where they all interacted with two kids. Also, I deserve to be laughed at for only just noticing that Jervis Cottonbelly has a belly literally made out of cotton. What a fool I can be.

Los Ice Creams were acting very tecnico for a while, but it turned out to be a ruse. Old Fashioned eventually came back and pinned Los Ice Creams with stereo backslides.

Analysis: I think this match worked better for the live crowd much more than it did on tape, but there were enough moments that I enjoyed to have mostly positive feelings about it. It does need to be noted though that this new Jervis is nowhere near as good in the ring as the old Jervis (the character is still great though).

Match Rating: **1/4
