Los Ice Creams vs. Frightmare & Blind Rage from CHIKARA Live at First Energy Stadium ’15
Post by Kevin Ford:
This was a match from the year long “Challenge of the Immortals” tournament CHIKARA held in 2015. Los Ice Creams represent Crown & Court while Frightmare & Rage represent the Nightmare Warriors. This is a rematch from “The Good Life” which was not a Challenge of the Immortals match. The Warriors attack Los Ice Creams from behind as they play to the crowd. Hijo hopes over a double back drop and pinches both of their fanny’s. Los Ice Creams dropkick the Warriors to the floor. The Warriors think they’re avoiding stereo dives, but they slap them on the back. The Warriors think they hurt one another, and the distraction allows Los Ice Creams to send them head first into one another outside the ring. Hijo blocks Frightmare in the corner so Jr. can come in with a dropkick. Jr. wheelbarrow armdrags Hijo into Frightmare. They double hip toss Rage in from the apron and deliver the Ice Cream sandwich. They tandem swing Frightmare into the corner. Rage ducks a clothesline and backdrops Hijo into Jr. He takes them out with a double clothesline. The Warriors isolate Jr. from Hijo, though Jr. is able to kick out of multiple pin attempts. Hijo makes a tag, but referee Derek Sabato didn’t see it so Rage is able to ummel Jr. back down on the opposite side of the ring. Jr. however is able to avoid some offense and tag Hijo back in. He gives Rage an atomic drop and Frightmare the Cold Stone Stunner. Rage takes a Manhattan Drop and a dropkick. Hijo distracts Sabato, saying he landed hard on his shoulder. However, Hijo baits Rage into a small package for the pin at 7:34!
This was a fun match, about on the level of their bout from a few weeks prior. It’s also good from a storytelling perspective to have Los Ice Creams win this match, as what better way to show that Kimberlee’s words of encouragement worked by having them beat a team they previously lost to? **
