Chikara Wit, Verve & A Bit O'Nerve

1. Sara Del Ray & Daizee Haze vs. Los Ice Creams - 2
2. Tursas vs. Green Ant - 2
3. The UnStable vs. Osirian Portal - 4
4. Lince Dorado vs. Equinox - 3
5. 2.0 vs. The Badd Boyz - 0
6. Tm Donst vs. Dasher Hatfield - 4
7. F.I.S.T, Crossbones & UltraMantis Black vs. Jigsaw, Mike Quackenbush & Incoherence - 4
8. Ares & Claudio Castagnoli vs. The Colony - Best 2 Out of 3 Falls Match - 4

I typically prefer longer matches, more time to build better, believable stories, creates compelling drama, etc. This show felt like it had several long matches but did everything in its power to make me not like them. They were either A) needlessly long and/or derivative, or B) trying too hard, that is, doing way too much stuff so after awhile nothing felt important or mattered. Equinox and Dorado -- a war for the ages? Dasher and Donst -- going broadway? Ugh. No fucking thanks. Most of the scores are roughly the same in the way this show felt eerily similar and bland. I liked the Osirian Portal tag the most, it could have scored a "5", but had some shoddy execution in parts. The main was also not so bad, but by this point, the crowd seemed like the teenagers in a Nightmare on Elm St. flick inevitably nodding off.
