Recap from TJ Hawke:

I feel like this will either be great or masturbatory. This is a two out of three falls match. This match was for Skayde’s AULL/IPW Mexican Middleweight Championship.

They went for some submissions early. There were a couple of awkward moments between the two men. Quack hit a tope suicida. Back in the ring, Skayde applied La Escalera, and Quack had to tap out. Skayde is up one fall to none.

Skayde was in control to start the second fall. He worked Quack over for a while. Quack came back and hit the Quackendriver: 1…2…3. They are tied, one fall apiece.

Skayde hit a tope con hello at the beginning of the third fall. Quack tried to come back with a tope suicida, but he crashed on the hard floor. Quack nearly lost via countout, but he got back into the ring. They did some rolls, and Quack caught Skayde with a hurricanrana: 1…2…3!

Skayde was upset that he lost, but he still helped to put the belt on Quack after the match.

I guess I was somewhat wrong in saying this would be either great or masturbatory. It felt light and unsubstantial, but not in an obnoxious way (at least to me). This would be the last Chikara match for several months.

Match Rating: **1/2
