Recap from TJ Hawke:
The match was a lot more serious at the beginning than I expected. Neither team could get a decisive advantage for a while. Skayde and Milanito looked to have an opportunity for stereo dives, but Team Osaka ran away before they dove. The teams started going back and forth. There was a lot of fun stuff. Ebessan and Skayde accidentally teamed up for a bit. They came to their senses, and Skayde took out Ebessan with a slingshot plancha. Milanito and Kid kept going back and forth until Kid hit him with a 450: 1…2…3
I’m probably overrating this a tad, but gosh darn, this was just so enjoyable (especially compared to the majority of the matches on the Best of 2002 and 2003 DVDs). In fact, I would say it has been my favorite Chikara match from the Best Of DVDs so far. Ebessan is so good at what he does. I wish he was stateside more often.
Match Rating: ***1/2
