Recap from TJ Hawke:
Bryce references on commentary that Quacksaw defeated the Bucks a few weeks earlier at a DGUSA show. Ah yes, this was when Chikara and DGUSA still worked together. Quack sends both Bucks out of the ring early, but the Bucks run away before Quack can dive onto them. Jigsaw tagged in and had the advantage on Nick. Quacksaw hit a series of slingshot moves on Nick. Nick tried to hit Quack with a sunset powerbomb to the floor, but Quack escaped and double stomped Nick on the apron. Quack then hit a somersault plancha onto Nick. Matt hit a diving dropkick through the ropes. Jigsaw went for a dive, but Nick tripped him up. The Bucks took advantage and managed to isolate Jigsaw. The Bucks got the heat on Jigsaw for a while. Jigsaw avoided a brainbuster from Matt and made a hot tag to Quack. Quack ended up on the floor, and Matt managed to hit a slingshot plancha on Quack though. The Bucks went right back to attacking Jigsaw. Weird tag match structure. Jigsaw then hit a tope suicida on Matt, and Quack came back into the match. Quack killed Nick with a German, and he then hit a superplex: 1…2…NO! The Bucks came back with some brutal double team moves on Jigsaw. Quack sent Nick face-first onto the apron, and he then hit an Asai Moonsault on Nick. Quacksaw then double teamed Matt. Jigsaw hit a brainbuster: 1…2…NICK MADE THE SAVE! All four men got to their feet. Jigsaw went for a Jig ‘n’ Tonic on Matt, but Nick superkicked him and Matt immediately hit a CODE RED: 1…2…NO! Jigsaw hit a bridging German on Matt: 1…2…NICK BREAKS IT UP WITH A 450! Jigsaw sent Nick to the floor. Quack put Matt in the Jig ‘n’ Tonic position and Jigsaw then hit a top rope double stomp—JIG ‘N’ TONIC: 1…2…3!
This match was quite good, but I think it underachieved. Things were humming along nicely, but Quack’s hot tag getting almost immediately cut off seemed to be a real buzzkill. They got the crowd back into in the end, but the middle portion of the match definitely suffered.
Match Rating: ***1/2
Thoughts from Chris GST:
No way these four guys have a bad match. Their styles are so similar and story telling abilities on par with their abilities in the ring so this is a match that I would gladly tell people to check out over and over. A tag team classic IMO. If I didn’t already own it I’d buy this DVD just to own the match. I think that even though the Young Bucks have obviously been on and off CHIKARA talents that every time they come in, it’s special and that the crowd knows that in a universe like CHIKARA where tag team wrestling is a necessity, they will always be welcome and can honestly have a good match with any talent on the roster, rudo or tecnico.
