Order "Under the Hood": http://www.smvod.com/premium-video/chikara-under-hood-live-ippv-december-2
1) For the Grand Championship of CHIKARA!
-The 9th annual Torneo Cibernetico ended with Tim Donst not just defeating Eddie Kingston, but humiliating our Grand Champion before the sold-out crowd in his hometown! Now Donst has eyes set on the richest of prizes - Eddie Kingston must defend our Grand Championship as the world watches live on iPPV!
2) Campeonatos de Parejas: Best 2 out of 3 Falls!
-At "The Cibernetico Rises" two legends of the ring, the 1-2-3 Kid & Marty Jannetty, teamed up once again and captured the pivotal third point needed for a shot at CHIKARA's coveted Campeonatos de Parejas. The Young Bucks (Nick Jackson & Matt Jackson) have spent time training under these former World Wrestling Federation tag team champions, but the brash Jackson brothers seem to have little regard or respect for their legendary mentors. Will it be time for the experience and savvy of Kid and Jannetty to prevail over the youthful cockiness of the Bucks?
3) The War to Settle the Score!
-As much success as The Spectral Envoy (Ultramantis Black, Hallowicked, and Frightmare) has enjoyed in 2012 they have been met at every turn with chaos and opposition at the hands of The Batiri (Obariyon, Kodama, and Kobald), Ophidian, and their twisted leader Delirious. Crossbones is one of the two to team up with The Spectral Envoy, and making his CHIKARA return, Blind Rage answers Ultramantis' call to aid the Envoy's mission to thwart their opponents at "Under the Hood."
4) Who Leaves with a Title Shot?
-CHIKARA currently has a logjam as two teams of former champions with unsettled business look to capture the all-elusive third point to earn a title bout. Both teams currently hold two points, and will face off in Philadelphia - 3.0 (Shane Matthews & Scott "Jagged" Parker) collides with F.I.S.T. (Johnny Gargano & Chuck Taylor) at The Trocadero and one will leave with a title shot...while the other loses everything.
5) For the Young Lions Cup!
-ACH took "Mr. Touchdown" Mark Angelosetti to the limit when they met in the finals of the 10th annual Young Lions Cup. The athletic display beacme an instant classic, coronated by a long standing ovation from the entire Indianapolis audience that saw the spectacle and the crowning of a champion. On that day, Mark Angelosetti was the better man, but ACH came within a heartbeat of winning the Cup - can he fulfill his dream on December 2nd in Philadelphia? The world will know the answer when pro-wrestling's two hottest up-and-comers lock up once again at "Under the Hood"!
6) A Roster Divided Against Itself!
-The rift within the roster became shockingly apparent at "The Cibernetico Rises" when Mike Quackenbush was left knocked out, and his longtime partner and protege Jigsaw walked out with The Shard. The waters were muddy enough before Director of Fun Wink Vavasseur ordered this 8-man tag team match for our Season Finale. Of course, it was Vavasseur that ordered assailANT into The Colony and Soldier Ant into The Swarm in the first place. Can either side find accord long enough to survive this intensely personal confrontation?
7) Singles Showdown!
-If there's one thing Dasher Hatfield cannot stand - it's a bad sport. And unfortunately, that's exactly what Icarus has proven to be. Having lost two matches to Hatfield in as many weeks, Icarus, the sore loser, has taken his frustration out on the beloved tecnico. Now Dasher is on a mission to teach the most hated man in CHIKARA history a thing or two about sportsmanship.
