Mad Man Pondo was disqualified in his quarter-final match with Necro Butcher against the team of Jigsaw and Sabian after hitting Jigsaw over the head with a stop sign; the Death Match Kings continued to beat down their opponents after the match, continuing to use the stop sign and steel chairs to batter Jigsaw and Sabian, perhaps costing them the tournament…the fate of Jigsaw and Sabian continued to spiral downwards in the semi-finals, as they were eliminated following a faked injury by Arik Cannon, who claimed to have re-injured his recently broken collarbone to get Jigsaw and Sabian to drop their guard while Castagnoli attacked them from behind to get the win…in one of the most shocking moments in Chikara history, Chris Hero turned his back on Mike Quackenbush in the finals to allow Claudio Castagnoli and Arik Cannon to win the tournament, giving him the Rubix Cube driver and allowing Arik Cannon to get the pin, siding with Triple C to form the Kings of Wrestling stable…after the match ended, Hero told the crowd that he’d been planning this since the IWA Mid-South Ted Petty Invitational the prior summer, after Quackenbush had defeated Hero in the first round; Hero realized that Quack had come so close to winning so many tournaments in the past that he wanted to help Quack get within inches of winning another one, just so Hero could have the personal satisfaction of being able to take the joy right from his hands and strip him of the one prize he so dearly desired…
