History

CHIKARA (sometimes referred to as Chikara Pro) is an American professional wrestling promotion based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Chikara Wrestle Factory was founded as a wrestling school in January 2002 in Allentown, Pennsylvania by Mike Quackenbush and Tom "Reckless Youth" Carter. After five months, the school started CHIKARA.

In 2004, Chris Hero became a co-trainer at the Wrestle Factory. In 2005, he was joined by Jorge "Skayde" Rivera as the third trainer (along with Quackenbush). In March 2005, the school moved from Allentown to the New Alhambra Arena, better known as "ECW Arena", in Philadelphia. They then took over the training for Combat Zone Wrestling, leading to the school's new name of "CZW/Chikara Wrestle Factory." The schools split in March, 2007, and the training center is once again simply "Chikara Wrestle Factory."

Their signpost events each year include a large tag team tournament (previously the "Tag World Grand Prix," now the "King of Trios") in February, "Aniversario Weekend" in May, "Young Lions Cup" in June or July and the "Torneo Cibernetico" in the autumn.

On Sunday, August 5, 2007 CHIKARA drew their biggest crowd ever of 350 at the New Alhambra/ECW Arena in Philadelphia, PA to see the "Maximum Overdraft" event.

General Info

Thought I used this bit to give you a ‘flavour’of CHIKARA so to speak. When going into a CHIKARA show prepare for fun. Simple as that. Don’t expect big pyro explosions, or massive entrances. But do expect whacky characters, and great audience participation even if its only a small crowd. The last comment that I just mentioned is one of the main reasons why I love it, CHIKARA don’t draw massive crowds. But what they make ip on is spirit. Your gonna here comments during the matches that will sometimes have you in stiches. One of my personal favourites –

‘Don’t go near the sound of the stomping foot’ said as someone goes for some Sweet Chin Music

Commentary is done by a variety of folk, from wrestlers to referees. But don’t coil back in haste. This is where the fun begins. Unlike some commentary teams, your not gonna hear about ‘puppies’ or ‘sloberknockers’….Well unless Moscow has a feud with Clifford the Big Red Dog…Then maybe. Anyways, with the commentry team your gonna have a blast.

As for the matches, it is very unfair to compare CHIKARA shows to an independent card that company’s like ROH produce. Your not going to get big indy names like – Nigel McGuinness, or Bryan Danielson appearing every show. And your not going to get a MOTYC with every show.

What you will get from CHIKARA is a breathe of fresh air, that is well and truly needed in the world of pro wrestling. I will tell you right now, CHIKARA is something that really does need to be experienced before making your mind up. So what are you waiting for. Check the DVD’s from the list below, ask anything in here and we will try our best to help you out…..

I think Bob Saget being the Comishoner should be mentioned, other than that good job

I actually like Night one's cover a hell of a lot more then Night two's. Also have you seen some of ROH's old covers...some of them are scary.

To me, the night one cover looks decent in a creepy way.

I just can’t decide and need some help.

Which should I get:

IWA-MS TPI 2006

Or

PWG Passive Hostility
PWG Based on a True Story
PWG Guiarmageddon II: Armorygeddon
PWG Holy Driver Down

That is really close, but me personally would get the PWG package. 4 Shows for $35 is better than 2 for $40 (unless prices changed) But also save and get TPI later
