Chikara's Under the Hood is this Sunday live on iPPV at Smart Mark Video on Demand and you should probably just go ahead and order it. Chikara always delivers with their season finales and their previous iPPVs have been among the top shows of the year. This Sunday should be no different with seven good to great matches on the card and many storylines reaching their boiling point. This is Chikara's last show for two whole months (noooooooo) so everyone should be bringing their A-Game. To say I'm excited would be a gross understatement.

Chikara made it's triumphant return to Chicago this past Saturday and the results were memorable to say the least. El Generico made his Chikara return and very nearly stole the show with The Shard, Colt Cabana got his win back from Mike Quackenbush in a clean and classy bout, 3.0 scored two points, Tim Donst continued his quest towards the Grand Championship, the Devastation Corporation destroyed Wayne and Garth, Fire Ant and assailANT started getting along (maybe?) and the Young Bucks retained the Campeonatos de Parejas thanks to some help from Delirous' army. It was an awesome, eventful show that I recommend everyone buy from Smart Mark Video when it comes out. Seriously, it was awesome and a must-see event.

On Saturday night Mr. Touchdown killed (?) Sapphire, the Mysterious and Handsome Stranger's loyal friend, tag team partner and feral pigeon. Please believe me when I tell you that it was the worst thing ever and I am being completely honest with you when I say that it was one of the saddest moments in the history of my wrestling watching life.
