I'm going to just run with the champions they have now. I'm also going to head into You Only Live Twice this weekend and duplicate that card as much as possible.

Grand Champion: Eddie Kingston
Campeonatos de Parejas: Pieces of Hate (Jigsaw and the Shard)

Now, if you have never followed Chikara before there is one thing you need to know. To challenge for the Campeonatos de Parejas (tag team belts) a team has to earn 3 points. This is accomplished by winning 3 matches in a row. If you lose a match, you lose all of your points. Campeonatos de Parejas matches are also all 2 out of 3 falls. So that's all you have to know to follow Chikara.

Countdown to You Only Live Twice #1: 5/18/2014

live from Easton, PA

Mike Quackenbush comes down to the ring. He announces that he's the new Director of Fun for Chikara. Due to this new position he is going to step down as an active wrestler in the company for good. But he doesn't want the fans to worry. When Chikara had closed it's doors there was one man that fought harder than anyone to see Chikara reopen. He thinks that man is going to be the new protector of Chikara. That man is also challenging Grand Champion Eddie Kingston at You Only Live Twice this weekend. He's proud to introduce... ICARUS!!!

Icarus comes out to a huge ovation from the crowd. He walks down to the ring and shakes Mike's hand. Icarus takes the mic and says that it's a little weird to be getting cheers and chants from the crowd for once. He admits that he's not proud of his F.I.S.T. days. When Chikara closed it's doors, it really made him stop and reflect on his life a little. He saw the happiness that Chikara brought to the fans and he couldn't see that die.

Music hits and Chuck Taylor and Drew Gulak walk down to the ring. Taylor grabs a mic and says that he needs a tissue after that stirring speech. He can't believe his former F.I.S.T. partner has stooped to such levels and is groveling to the stupid fans this way. He thinks that Icarus has lost his edge. Icarus tells Taylor to get in the ring with him and see if it's true. Taylor agrees and says it would be a pleasure to slap him around the ring a bit later tonight. Icarus and Taylor act like they're going to get into it but Mike gets between them and tells them to save it for later in the show.

ACH d. Larry Sweeney w/ the Big Bang Attack

Gavin Loudspeaker has The Colony backstage. Green Ant says there's no place like home. He and the other Ants have been wandering the wrestling world winning matches and looking for a new Ant Hill. But thankfully Chikara is back and the Ants have a new home. He warns Jigsaw and the Shard that the Colony will be hot on their trail and the Campeonatos de Parejas will belong to the Colony again!

Kodama and Obariyon d. Los Ice Creams w/ the Air Raid Crash to earn their 1st point.

The show the fans lined up outside the venue before the show starts. Several Chikara stars such as Dasher Hatfield, The Mysterious and Handsome Stranger and Worker Ant appear and sign autographs. They interview several fans about Chikara's return.

Bravado Brothers d. UnStable w/ the Gentleman's Approach to earn their first point.

A hype video plays for You Only Live Twice.

Main Event:
Icarus d. Chuck Taylor w/ the Blu-Ray


Icarus walks around the ringside area and high fives the fans. Grand Champion Eddie Kingston appears on the entrance ramp. Icarus and Kingston stare each other down. Icarus points at Kingston and says he's taking the belt and Kingston says not on your life back.

Countdown to You Only Live Twice #2: 5/20/2014

live from Reading, PA

Worker Ant d. Hydra w/ the Aleta

Leonard F. Chikarason enters Director of Fun Mike Quackenbush's office. Wrestling is Fun! needs a championship belt to unveil this Sunday. Mike seems surprised by this but says that he'll take care of it immediately. Leonard leaves the office and make starts looking for things around the office to give him ideas for the belt.

Kobald d. Pinkie Sanchez w/ the Demon's Toilet

Grand Champion Eddie Kingston comes down to the ring. He mentioned that he's had this belt since November 13, 2011. He's taken on all challengers for this belt in the last 2 and a half years. Now he's got Icarus to deal with. He wants to say up front that he appreciates and respects everything that Icarus did to help bring Chikara back from the dead. This belt wouldn't mean anything without a wrestling promotion behind it. With all of that said, Icarus won't be winning this belt. He's come to far and beaten too many challengers to lose this belt as soon as Chikara finally returned. He doesn't think Icarus realizes what it's going to be like when that bell finally rings. It's going to be on and he won't be pulling any punches in there.

3.0 d. Team AC/DC w/ the 3.0 Lung Blower to earn their first point.

The GEKIDO are backstage. Jigsaw says that their mission isn't done just yet. They didn't want to see Chikara close it's doors. They want to take over Chikara and run the company in their own image. He also tells the Colony that they won't be getting the Campeonatos de Parejas any time soon. He and the Shard plan to hold onto those belts for a very very long time.

17 and deviANT d. Osirian Portal w/ the Quackendriver 3 to earn their first point.

A video package plays with reactions from a variety of Chikara stars on the company opening up for business again. Colt Cabana, Tim Donst, Dasher Hatfield, 3.0, Green Ant, Hydra and the Young Bucks are all featured.

UnStable d. Incoherence w/ the Stigmata to earn their first point.

Leonard F. Chikarason and Bryce Remsberg are in the Event Center. You Only Live Twice is coming up this weekend and there's a huge main event with Eddie Kingston defending the Grand Championship against Icarus. Chikarason says that this might be one of the biggest matches in Chikara history. Icarus is riding a wave of popularity and good will that few wrestlers ever experience. He thinks a win here will really cement him as someone to watch in the world of wrestling. Also on the card will be Fire Ant and Soldier Ant against 17 and deviANT, The Throwbacks vs. UnStable and a whole lot more.

Main Event:
Ultramantis Black d. Delirious by DQ


The DQ came when things spilled to the outside of the ring and Delirious hit UMB with a chair. Crossbones, Hydra and Mister Zero came out of the crowd and started attacking Delirious. UMB recovered and hit a Praying Mantis Bomb on Delirious and then grabbed the house mic. UMB says that the Order of the Neo Solar Temple has also risen from the ashes of Chikara. The Spectral Envoy is dead, long live the Order of the Neo Solar Temple. Frightmare and Hallowicked run down to the ring to try and help Delirious. The numbers are just too much and members of the Solar Temple put the boots to them as the show fades to black.

Chikara Update: 5/20/2014

Loudspeaker: Gavin Loudspeaker here. After the events of today's show I've just been informed that a trios match has been signed for You Only Live Twice. Delirious, Frightmare and Hallowicked will be taking on Ultramantis Black, Crossbones and Mister Zero. I'm getting word that we have Ultramantis Black on standby so let's go to him.

The scene switches to the Order of the Neo Solar Temple backstage.

Ultramantis Black: For far too long, the Order of the Neo Solar Temple laid dormant in Chikara. I admit that I lost my way with the Spectral Envoy and I forgot the true meaning of the word evil. Well... those days are over. I have renewed my pursuit of the dark arts and I will usher in a new Dark Age in Chikara. Delirious, Frightmare and Hallowicked will be just the first pieces to fall in this game of intergalactic chess. At You Only Live Twice, the wrestlers and the fans of Chikara will learn to be afraid again.

live from Easton, PA

Fire Ant and Soldier Ant d. Team AC/DC w/ the Beach Break to earn their first point.

Chuck Taylor d. Shane Storm w/ the Awful Waffle

Icarus comes down to the ring. The fans stand and chant his name for several minutes. Icarus says it's weird to be standing in a Chikara ring and being cheered on by the fans. It's been almost a year since Condor Security shut down his match with Eddie Kingston. He had Kingston beat in the middle of that ring and he's spent a year watching film on Kingston. He's ready to step up and be the man in Chikara. This is his home and he wants to represent it. Tomorrow night is his chance to cement himself as a Chikara legend.

Max and Blaster stomp on the Young Lions Cup trophy until it's smashed to pieces. Bakabella gets on the ring and says the title has been retired.

You Only Live Twice: 5/25/2014

live from Easton, PA

Director of Fun Mike Quackenbush welcomes everyone to You Only Live Twice. He thanks all the fans for their support while Chikara was closed down. Without them they wouldn't be up and running again. He tells the fans to enjoy the show.

Sidney Bakabella leads Max, Blaster and Flex down to the ring after the match. Stigma and Vin Gerard escape into the crowd leaving Dasher and Touchdown to fend for themselves. Flex irish whips Dasher and Touchdown into lariats from Blaster. Max gives both men a powerbomb for good measure. Suddenly the arena goes dark and the theme from Back to the Future starts playing. The lights come back up and a DeLorean has appeared in the entrance area. The door open and out steps...

ARCHIBALD PECK!

The crowd goes absolutely crazy as Peck marches down to the ring. Flex goes to meet him and Peck throws salt in his eyes. Peck climbs to the top rope and goes for a cross body block on Blaster but gets caught. Blaster lifts Peck for a gorilla press slam but Peck slips loose and gives Blaster a wedgie. Max goes for a clothesline but Peck ducks and comes off the ropes with a shoulder block which doesn't get Max off his feet. Peck thinks about it for a moment and then just kicks Max right in the balls and body slams him to huge cheers from the crowd. Archibald Peck stands tall in the ring.

Kodama and Obariyon d. 3.0 w/ the Impaler Bulldog to earn their third point.


Jigsaw and the Shard roll into the ring with chairs and hit Kodama and Obairyon. The chairs have no effect and the Batiri run over Jigsaw and the Shard with clotheslines. Kodama and Obariyon get them trapped in the corners and just go to town with forearms and knees. Kodama and Obariyon grab both men and do a double noggin knocker right in the middle of the ring. Jigsaw and the Shard bail out of the ring instead of enduring further punishment.
