Jigsaw vs. Sumie Sakai from The International Invasion of International Invaders 2003


Allentown, PA

This match is on the Best of 2003 DVD, which is available for purchase at Smart Mark Video.  For a more informed opinion on this match, check out Kevin Ford’s review.

Recap from TJ Hawke:

I have never seen Sumie Sakai before. Quack explained on commentary that this match was one of the first intergender matches in Chikara. Sakai hit an early plancha, but Jigsaw cut her off when they got back in the ring. He worked her over for a while. Ok, I just learned that Sukai was on the second EVOLVE show, which means there’s a chance that I have actually seen her. Sakai avoided the Cancun Tornado and then made a big comeback. She went for a moonsault, but Jigsaw got his knees up and then hit a superkick: 1…2…3

This was a solid match. Much like a few others matches on the Best of 2002 and 2003 sets, you have wonder why this match was added. It’s not bad, but it’s hard to believe it would be the “best” of a year in Chikara. It either speaks very poorly of Chikara’s 2003 or very poorly of Chikara’s reasoning for selecting certain matches.
