Indy News: KING OF TRIOS Night 3 Results
The final night of KING OF TRIOS is underway, results from Philadelphia:
The Colony beat The Osirian Portal. Soldier Ant pinned Hieracon.
F.I.S.T. beat Michinoku Pro. Icarus pinned The Great Sasuke with a small package after Chuck Taylor threw powder in the eyes. So it’s The Colony vs. F.I.S.T. in the finals. This is the only thing I don’t like about the tourney-it’s always an all-CHIKARA final.
Jigsaw beat Ultimate Spider Jr.
A Tag Team Gauntlet Match was won by Atsushi Kotoge & Daisuke Harada. Results of that:
Arik Cannon & Darin Corbin beat Acid Jaz & Willie Richardson.
The Batiri beat Cannon & Corbin.
The Throwbacks beat The Batiri by DQ (Obariyon DQ’d).
Sara Del Rey & Daizee Haze beat The Throwbacks.
Sara & Daizee beat Matt Classic & Darkness Crabtree.
Brodie Lee & Grizzly Redwood beat Sara & Daizee.
Atsushi Kotoge & Daisuke Harada beat Lee & Redwood.
Kotoge & Harada beat 3.0.
Kotoge & Harada beat Super Shisa & KAGETORA to win the match. And under CHIKARA tag team rules, that’s 3 points for Kotoge & Harada-they’ve earned a shot at the Campeones de Parejas! (CHIKARA Tag Team Titles)
Manami Toyota beat Madison Eagles.
Eddie Kingston beat Akira Tozawa.
El Generico beat 1-2-3 Kid to win this year’s Rey De Voladores.
KOT Finals: The Colony beat F.I.S.T. to become the 2011 KING OF TRIOS. Green Ant pinned Icarus. Sadly predictable final.
DVDs of the weekend will be available starting tomorrow at smartmarkvideo.com. Based on the outcome of the tournament and how it seemed to play out, to me it was quite a letdown. Started out pretty good but then it became clear all the outsiders would get buried in favor of the CHIKARA trios, and that didn’t sit well with me. I’m less of a CHIKARA fan after this weekend and the tournament has lost some of it’s luster in my eyes.
