^ CHIKARA pro started in 2002. Reckless Youth Tom Carter founded it. It was named after Leonard F CHIKARAson. CHIKARA itself mean strength, power in Japanese.
The main men behind it are: Quackenbush (Booker, head trainer of the CHIKARA wrestle factory school, main wrestler), Leanord F CHIKARAson (another booker, director of Fun), BOB SAGAT (celibrity/TV star, commisioner), Reckless Youth (not too active nowadays but still held in high regard) and Chris Hero (another head trainer of the wrestle factory school, main wrestler.
Most people think it's all comedy, but it's really not. It's main focus is wrestling. Full stop. They have fun comedy, nothing too rude (family frinedly). The comedy/fun is always fun and feels good, and the wrestling is also very underrated too. They have loads of great matches (no MOTYCs, ****1/2+, but lots **** - ****1/4). They focus on Lucha libre, so certain rules of that apply, and they focus more on tag matches/multi mans then singles.
They have loads of character development, and loads of promos. Lots of young guys who go to the school wrestle there, so there are some bad guys some times, but there's also the futures of the business if you get me. They have 2 titles, the Campejonas De Parjas (tag titles) currently held by Team FIST (Gran Akuma and Icarus). They have a point system where a team MUST win 3 matches consecutively to merit a title shot. They also have a singles one, the Young Lions Cup, currently held by Max Boyer. They have a big 3 night tourny to determine the champ, then after (this only happened recently, previos tourny winners just won it at the tourny and didn't defend the cup like a title) the champ can defend the cup like a singles title.
That's all off the top of my head, feel free to ask more if you want.
