Eddie Kingston, Mike Quackenbush, Jigsaw, & The Colony (Green Ant & Soldier Ant) vs. GEKIDO (17, The Shard, assailANT, deviANT, & combatANT) from Chikara’s Chikarasaurus Rex: How to Hatch a Dinosaur 2012


A war is set for the main event of “Chikarasaurus Rex: How To Hatch a Dinosaur.” Grand Champion Eddie Kingston leads Jigsaw and The Colony to battle the entire GEKIDO faction. GEKIDO have their first match a five person unit this weekend during Aniversario weekend. If they are able to defeat the entire first graduating class of the CHIKARA Factory, it will provide them with a wave of momentum going into this show. That being said, do not count the CHIKARA team out. We have seen that there is pure hatred from their side against the GEKIDO. These five love CHIKARA most of all and would do just about anything to get the GEKIDO out of their company. Which team will stand tall in front of the world on iPPV? Could we see somebody get unmasked for everyone to see?

Recap from TJ Hawke:

The story was that Fire Ant got his ankle broke backstage by the GEKIDO before the iPPV got underway.  Thus, the tecnicos were a man short going into the match.


I was really cold on this feud going into the show, but when I watched it originally, Kingston’s demeanor as he went down the ramp completely sold me on  the intensity of this storyline.  All nine men are brawling all over the ring and ringside area.  17 was all alone in the ring at one point, when all of a sudden, Mike Quackenbush ran down and hit a springboard dropkick that sent 17 to the floor.  Derek Sabato jumped up on the apron, but Quack promptly gave him a huge palm strike.  Quack then wiped out everyone with a somersault plancha.  The bell finally rang shortly after that and a tag team match broke out.  The rudos managed to cut off Soldier Ant, and they worked him over for a bit. deviANT went after Soldier Ant’s mask, but the other tecnicos managed to save Soldier’s mask.  Soldier Ant went after deviANT’s mask, and that caused another huge brawl to break out.  Order was briefly restored as GEKIDO worked over Soldier Ant some more.  Solier Ant managed to hit 17 with a tope suicida out of nowhere.  Kingston jumped into the ring and started tossing around the GEKIDO.  Everyone traded a lot of big moves. Kingston killed Shard with a half-nelson suplex.  Jigsaw nailed combatANT with superkick.  Green Ant managed to get to the balcony and he dove off it onto everyone but Jigsaw. Fantastic spot.  The crowd was going nuts.  17 locked a Crippler Crossface on Jigsaw, but Soldier Ant made the save.  GEKIDO almost got Soldier Ant’s mask off, but Quack and Green Ant saved him.  The five tecnicos then managed to hit the Mega Ant-apult. Soldier Ant then locked in the Chikara Special on 17. 17 TAPS OUT!  Quack broke several of 17’s fingers after the match.


I really did not care all that much about the Gekido match going into the iPPV. I thought the story was logical at best, but uninspired at its worst. With that being said, the ten men match was an excellent semi-main event. Quackenbush returning took me (and the crowd by the sounds of it) completely off guard.  He looked to be in great shape, and his presence really added to the drama of the match.  Soldier Ant and Eddie Kingston also looked great in this match, as the brawling structure of the Gekido matches played into their strengths. Much like a lot of the other feuds on this show, the iPPV match ended up being a great exclamation point on an otherwise uninspired story.

Match Rating: ***3/4
