The Spectral Envoy (UltraMantis Black, Frightmare, Hallowicked, & Blind Rage) vs. Gekido (17, The Shard, & Jigsaw) & Missile Assault Ant
Story of the Match: Okay, Jigsaw not wanting to team with Mike Quackenbush anymore made perfect sense. He did not appreciate Quack focusing on outside issues and not winning matches. However, Jigsaw joining the Gekido (and probably The Flood) makes no sense whatsoever still. These are groups that are openly trying to destroy Chikara and less concerned with winning matches.
The match was supposed to be just a trios match. However, when the Gekido saw Blind Rage, they decided to bring out Missile Assault Ant. An atomicos match broke out. Mantis was worked over for a while before a long back and forth sequence to finish the match. Missile Assault Ant ate a super hip toss and then a senton from Wicked to give the Envoy a victory.
Analysis: I thought this match was fairly fun. There was no substance to care about or get invested in, but these guys know how to have a fun atomicos match in their sleep at this point. This show is slowly gathering some momentum.
Match Rating: ***1/4
