The Flood (Haack & Slash w/ Dr. Cube) vs. The Batiri (Kodama & Obariyon) vs. The Bloc Party (Mr. Azerbaijan & The Proletarian Boar Of Moldova w/Polar Baron) vs. The Colony (Fire Ant & Worker Ant)

Story of the Match: This is an elimination match with points on the line. The Batiri were very over and made to look strong early in the match. The Flood was the first team eliminated. Worker Ant got the elimination with his GTS variation. The second sequence of the match was Worker Ant being worked over by The Bloc Party. The Colony made a comeback, and Fire Ant pinned Mr. Azerbaijan with a swinging DDT. The Colony have two points, but they put them on the line against The Batiri during the final fall. Fire Ant went for the same swinging DDT on Obariyon, but Obariyon reversed it into a schoolboy to get the win. It looked like Obariyon held some tights on that, but I cannot be sure. It certainly would not make sense with their current tecnico direction.

Analysis: I thought this was a strong and energetic opener. The Batiri are wrestling every match like they have something to prove, and I cannot help but be impressed by their efforts in New Chikara so far. I’m more interested in The Colony though, which made me disappointed in the result.

Match Rating: ***
