Mr. Touchdown Mark Angelosetti w/ Veronica defeated Soldier Ant. Soldier Ant kicked out of multiple spinebusters, so Touchdown called for Veronica's baton. As referee Jon Barber took the baton away, Touchdown was able to hit Soldier with a wrench to get the pin.

The Shard defeated Fire Ant with an ankle lock. The Shard focused on Fire Ant's previously injured leg throughout the match. After the match, Shard would not let go of the ankle lock, which brought out Mike Quackenbush, who was followed by Jigsaw. Quack chased Shard off, and confronted Jigsaw about how to fix the rift between them. Jigsaw responded with a super kick and left with the Shard.

Dasher Hatfield defeated Icarus with the suicide squeeze. Icarus returned to the ring after the match and hit Hatfield with a pedigree.

The 1-2-3 Kid and Marty Jannetty defeated the Heartthrobs. 1-2-3 Kid and Marty Jannetty now have three points and can challenge for the Campeonatos de Parejas. 1-2-3 Kid was really breathing heavily and favoring his chest during and after the match.

Notes and thoughts: Chikara has outgrown the Highline Ballroom. There was less seating on the floor than their previous shows here, and a lot of standing room instead... The hard camera was in a different location from previous shows... Gavin Loudspeaker, Leonard F. Chikarason, and Chuck Taylor were on commentary from where I stood...The show started a bit late, because it takes forever to get into the building... Chikara returns to action in two weeks. "Under the Hood" will take place at the Trocadero Theater in Philadelphia and will be an iPPV on on December 2. It will be a matinee.
