* {{Brainwashing}} After losing to Ultra Mantis Black, Black's Spectral Envoy stablemates Hallowicked and Wrestling/{{Frightmare}} came out to celebrate the win. Delirious pulled out the Eye of Tyr and used it on them, turning them against Mantis.[[note]]The 2012 Season Premiere ''CHIKARA The Thirteenth Hat'' had begun with Mantis and Hallowicked finding Delirious, still in his [[Wrestling/DieBruderschaftDesKreuzes BDK]] gear, in a cave by some railroad tracks. Mantis told Delirious that the BDK was history (well, Tim Donst and Jakob Hammermeier were still hanging onto the name, though they would abandon it in June after GEKIDO surpassed them). Mantis used the Eye on Delirious and cast a spell, expecting that Delirious would join he and Hallowicked in the Spectral Envoy. Instead, Delirious grabbed the Eye, ran off, smashed it, and proclaimed in clear English, "I REMEMBER EVERYTHING!" He subsequently announced his intention to destroy Mantis in 2014 as retaliation for losing two years of his life to the Eye of Tyr, first due to Mantis in 2009 and then due to BDK leader Ares in 2010. At ''King of Trios 2014'', Jakob revealed that he had the Eye, never explaining how he got it, only alluding to a vague DealWithTheDevil.[[/note]] Hallowicked spoke Frightmare's name in clear English and they left together.

The match started with Cheech and Cloudy dressed up as Incoherence and imitating them very well, to hilarious results. Incoherence won the first fall and they chased their opponents into the back somewhere. Cheech and Cloudy came out as themselves and the match continued. Cheech and Cloudy won the second fall but Incoherence, of course, won the third.

* ConvenientReplacementCharacter: [=UltraMantis=] Black was injured and Blind Rage was retired, so Hallowicked didn't have a partner going into ''CHIKARA Tag World Grand Prix 2006''.
