Blackjack Marciano vs. Icarus from 2003


This was a match from an unreleased Chikara show. This match is on the Best of 2003 DVD, which is available for purchase at Smart Mark Video.

Recap from TJ Hawke:

There was some gaga with hair pulling early on. It was amusing. Marciano got sent to the floor, but then he cut Icarus off. Marciano was in control after that. Icarus eventually made a comeback. Marciano managed to connect on a variation of the koppou kick. Marciano went for a moonsault, but he came up empty. Eddie Kingston showed up. Icarus had the match won with a Sliced Bread, but Kingston had Bryce distracted. Gran Akuma took out Kingston with a tope con hello. Icarus caught Marciano with a hurricanarana: 1…2…3!

Nothing about this match was special, but I enjoyed it well enough. The shenanigans were fun, the action was fun, and the interference finish was even fun. Thumbs up!

Match Rating: **3/4
