The Batiri vs. Jakob Hammermeier & Pinkie Sanchez from CHIKARA Altar Egos 2015
Post by Kevin Ford:
This was a match from the year long “Challenge of the Immortals” tournament CHIKARA held in 2015. The Batiri represent the Arcane Horde while Hammermeier & Sanchez represent the BDK. Kodama and Hammermeier’s Lucha sequence ends with a toreador by Kodama that sends Hammermeier outside. Obariyon hip tosses Sanchez and gives him a bodyslam. Sanchez charges and is taken over with a backdrop. Obariyon gives Hammermeier the same three moves when he enters. The BDK retreats on the floor, so the Batiri suicide dive onto them. Obariyon uppercuts Sanchez for a two count. Hammermeier knees Obariyon in the back as he hits the ropes. Sanchez drops Obariyon with a bodyscissors DDT. Kodama breaks the pin. The BDK isolate Obariyon in their corner, focusing their attack on his neck and throat. Obariyon avoids the Shiney Hiney and powerslams Sanchez giving him the opening to tag in Kodama. He throws a barrage of strikes and kicks at Hammermeier before driving him face first into the canvas. He drops Hammermeier with a neckbreaker. He drags Hammermeier back in the ring for a back elbow in the corner. He hits a springback Ace Crusher for two. Sanchez assists Hammermeier in fighting off a Batiri double team. He double stomps Kodama into a neckbreaker from Hammermeier. Obariyon breaks the pin. Obariyon ducks a clothesline from Hammermeier. The Batiri hit Hammermeier with the Skull Bronzing. Sanchez eats the Seventh Circle for the pin at 9:39. This felt a little off at times. Not that anything was bad or awkward, but it didn’t feel like much more than a formulaic tag match with little emotion. Overall it was fine, just not terribly intriguing. **¼
