Here's my pre-show analysis/predictions: [Uhaa Nation/Anthony Nese]The "premier athlete" has a very strong chance to maintain streak through two top(at different levels)stars this weekend but since the "one man nation" has 16 months to rebound from i say he's much more likely to win. [Special Feature]With the sad & chaotic situation going on with chikara it could distract too much away from what will likely be a very strong bout that could go either way. Expect "ironic" chants to happen. [Fox/Baretta]Trent's been enjoying a breakthrough year alongside nese so don't be too surprised to see him earn a titleshot even in loss. [UnitedGate]With their' sixth title bucks can claim to be "best in the world" right now. Although ricochet/swann have gone for title before @ birthday 3 their singles' career focus & lacking team experience is too obvious for them to win here. [Contenders] Tomahawk & Eita are much too unestablished to earn shot & cima's distracted about richochet taking dreamgate which leaves tozawa earning highly deserving shot. [FreedomGate]After 20 months of the cats pajamas/bees knees nonsence akira "ask em" tozawa becomes new champion!

[Caleb Konley over Shane Strickland] Above-average. Was supposed to be 3way with scott reed but argued week before with gabe & ended up fired! Konley's steadily improving & shane is potential "swann-type". [Jon Davis over Drew Gulak] Average semi-squash. I say "semi" because drew made jon earn his victory with game effort. [Anthony Nese over Uhaa Nation] Above-average-to-good. Nation showed next-to-no ringrust while nese maintained streak through weekend by clean wins! [jigsaw/batiri/taylor over osirian portal/fireant/frightmare] Good match. "Rudos" beat "technicos" in typical fast,colorful,family-friendly,comedic "chikara-style". Pre-bout "money swap" of jigsaw & ophidian was memorable. [Fox over Baretta] Average-to-good-to-very good. Confusing?? Try investing fanbase in a veryshort bout that changes to a titlematch that THEN becomes a 3series!? For fox to agree to a third round AFTER he evened things up almost made him deserving of LOSING evolve strap to a surprisingly inspiring trent. [Tozawa over Tomahawk/Eita/Cima] Very Good. Rookies impressed with improving styles & new names while the "icon" added historical touch. What half-ruined tozawa's anticipated win was davis's post-match assault & akira ACCEPTING johnny's sneaky early bout offer right after!? [Gargano over Tozawa] (read above and add supersquash) [YoungBucks over ICMG] Very good & best of show. "Lionel Richie" song started by machineguns was comedy highlight as well as teams trading "headbands" back-and-forth. [Gargano over Tozawa] Having johnny win AGAIN after earlier events only added insult to injury for akira's fans. Having johnny try to "direct" ricochet's titleshot to fox & not him gave SOME semblance of hope for freedomgate belt's future value which cannot come fast enough. Give birthday #4 only a imbalanced & semi-confusing B grade.
