Caught in a Cauldron of Hate DVD Report

We are on DVD from Reading, PA, February 19, 2011, and we start off with Dasher Hatfield cutting a promo, saying to get repsect and to show he’s championship material, he knows he has to beat Claudio Castagnoli.

Jakob Hammermeier, the BDK announcer, comes to the ring without his neck brace and knee splint, sporting only the sling on his right arm.

Dasher Hatfield vs. Claudio Castagnoli
Referee: Nick Papagiorgio
Commentary: Bryce Remsburg and Tim Donst
Hatfield starts hot, so Castagnoli heads to the floor to stall locking up again, prompting the crowd to chant “coward” at him. Claudio gets the advantage sidestepping Dasher’s charge. Dasher gets a headlock, but Claudio shoots him off. Two shoulderblocks and Dasher’s doesn’t get go down either time. Dasher gets an armbar. Claudio shoots him off again, and Dasher hits an underhand pitch. Claudio grabs the mask and hot shots Dasher on the top rope. Dasher rolls Claudio in a sunset flip, but Claudio responds with a lariat. Claudio snaps on a Swiss sleeper, with the crowd fully behind Dasher. Dasher is able to shoot him off and get a sleeper of his own, but Claudio gets a back suplex out of it. Claudio goes for the sleeper again, but Dasher doesn’t let his arm drop a third time. Dasher gets a chinbreaker to break the sleeper, but Castagnoli falls on Dasher on the rebound. Dasher charges the corner, Castagnoli tries to block, but gets caught in a Northern Lights suplex. Dasher tries several rollups and pinning combinations, but Castagnoli spins Dasher’s mask around and hits a huge European uppercut to get the win.

After the match, Claudio returns to the ring, stomping down Dasher. Claudio calls out for   Eddie Kingston, wanting his respect. He gives Dasher a Ricola bomb, saying that was all Kingston’s fault.

3.0 tries to cut a promo on their match with the Unstable, but they find it hard to do since they just find the Unstable too boring. So 3.0 promised to show the Unstable a good time during the match.

3.0 vs. The Unstable
Referee: Jonathan Barber
Commentary: Bryce Remsburg and Johnny Gargano
3.0 spends the entire match getting under the skin of both members of the Unstable: telling them to smile, calling them boring, doing cartwheels, getting the fans to chant random things, calling them by their former personas, calling Gerard pretty, and so far. The match started with multiple sequences of Shane Matthews dropping Stigma then Matthews hitting an elbow instead of cris-crossing. Remsburg comments that the Unstable seems to have lost its swagger since Colin Delaney left the group. Scott Parker took three attempts to nip up, saying he learned it from Equinox, Vin Gerard’s former persona. Stigma and Gerard take the advantage on Scott Parker while Shane Matthews yelled at the Unstable. While Matthews was napping on the apron distracting Gerard, Parker was able to catch Gerard with an inside cradle for the win. A lot of comedy, not too much action, but I find 3.0 fun.

Greg Iron vs. Icarus
Referee: Nick Papagiorgio
Commentary: Bryce Remsburg and Johnny Gargano
Icarus, feeling magnanimous, takes the mic before the match and tells Iron (who has cerebral palsy) to forfeit since he’s clearly hurt and unable to wrestle, referring of course to his palsy. Iron refuses, and Icarus says he’ll send him back to the Special Olympics. Iron gets the early advantage with arm drags, headscissors, and a senton. Gargano comments that while Iron may only have one good, he does have two good legs and a strong back. Icarus regained the advantage with a stunner over the ropes. Icarus with a pair of bodyslams and a leg drop. Iron is able to counter a bodyslam attempt but gets met with a boot to the face. Iron counters with a forearm and a back elbow while Icarus is on the apron, and Iron gets a springboard senton to the floor. Icarus scoots under the ring, but gets hit with Handicapped Parking (reverse STO) and a gimp slap (chop with his disabled hand) by Iron. Icarus fights back and hits the pedigree. Iron kicks out and gets Icarus in the Crippled Crossface (crippler crossface). Icarus actually bites his way out of the crossface and hits the blu-ray (death valley driver into the bottom turnbuckle) to get the win. Greg Iron gets an ovation when he leaves the ring.

We get a video package of the events leading up to the Brodie Lee/Sugar Dunkerton match, mostly from the January event in Philadelphia where Brodie powerbombed Sugar on the ring steps, which knocked Sugar out of the match.

Brodie Lee vs. Sugar Dunkerton
Referee: Jonathan Barber
Commentary: Gavin Loudspeaker
Brodie Lee appreciates the “You’re a Redneck” chant the fans started. Sugar starts with punches and chops, but Brodie gets the advantage with a knee to the ribs. Sugar drops his straps to show off his taped up midsection. Brodie continues his assault with chops, kicks, and uppercuts, focusing on that taped-up target. Brodie Lee throws Sugar to the floor and hits a bodyslam to the floor. Back in the ring, Lee hits a running chop and Sugar responds with one of his own. Sugar avoids a big boot and crotches Brodie on the ringpost and locking in a cloverleaf around the ringpost. Sugar locks on a figure four variant, but Brodie fights out. Running charge from Sugar gets countered into a black hole slam. Sugar kicks out at two, and locks in another leg vine. Lee gets to the ropes and is able to hit a superkick and half nelson suplex. Sugar kicks out at 2. Brodie goes for the powerbomb, but Sugar escapes, hitting chops to the chest and knee of Brodie Lee. Sugar goes for the senton from the top rope, but gets met with Brodie’s knees to the back. They roll to the floor, and Brodie positions chairs. Sugar escapes another powerbomb attempt, but not a big boot. Brodie rolls back in at 12, and Sugar is out on the floor. Sugar is grabbing the apron to get up, but cannot. Brodie Lee wins by countout.  Chikara security helps Sugar to his feet and assist him to the back.

We see a video highlighting Jonathan Gresham’s transformation into Hieracon and the formation of the new Osirian Portal trio.

The Colony vs. The Osirian Portal
Referee: Bryce Remsburg
Commentary: Gavin Loudspeaker and Leonard F. Chikarason
We have a Welcome Back chant for Green Ant, in his first match since his arm injury last August. Handshake by Green Ant and Ophidian followed by mat wrestling and counters. Fire Ant tags in and Ophidian gets a double suplex. Ophidian rolls out and Fire Ant and Amasis turn up the speed. Soldier Ant tags in, and the Colony triple teams Amasis. Fire Ant with a pair of back sentons, before tagging in Soldier again. Amasis finally rolls out, and Hieracon gets a sunset flip on Fire Ant. Hieracon and Ophidian double team on Soldier Ant.

Green Ant gets Ophidian up for the Torture Rack, but Amasis flies over and gets a sunset flip and jackknife pin on Green Ant for the win.

Green Ant, following his arm surgery, has developed some traits similar to Lex Luger, after his surgery: looking in the mirror during his entrance, going for elbow smashes, similar taunts and mannerisms, and the Torture Rack.

Young Lions Cup: Rich Swann vs. Frightmare
Referee: Nick Papagiorgio
Commentary: Bryce Remsburg and Steven “The Turtle” Weiner
Rich Swann returns to Chikara for the first time since last April. Swann and Frightmare are pretty equally matched in size, speed, and power.
