Story of the Match

This was the finals of the 2006 TWGP. The winners will be become the very first Chikara Campeonatos de Parejas.

Skayde and Milano had a fair amount of success early on. The Kings eventually cut off Skayde and worked him over. Milano made a hot tag and nearly made Hero submit to the AT Lock. Milano and Skayde got stereo submissions on the Kings, but they both got to the ropes. The Kings fought back and finished Skayde with a double Ricola Bomb.

I enjoyed this quite a bit. It was a little bit awkward at time, but some of the sequences they pulled off made up for it. Milano in particular has never seemed like an extraordinary in-ring talent to me based on my limited exposure to him.

In the end though, the match featured a strong rudos team against an over tecnico team. That almost always works well with me.

Match Rating: ***1/2
