Re: CHIKARA - Season 11 Discussion Thread

^ Do you follow much outside of WWE and/or TNA? If not, then you need to check out more of the Indy scene. There's so much more freedom for wrestlers to do moves and characters they otherwise couldn't. Some promotions are hilarious (CHIKARA), while others just offer real solid wrestling.

The international stuff is awesome too. Lucha is different, and kind of an acquired taste and then there's the whole Puro deal, which, depending on what style of wrestling you like, pretty well kills much of what we see on television here.

I do watch random indy/Japan matches on Youtube when I find time. I looked up some of El Generico's matches as well as Samuray Del Sol to name a couple. Usually when there's a wrestler that pique's my interest I'll check 'em out. Currently I've been hearing about Kevin Steen and plan to watch some of his matches. Seeing as some really talented wrestlers have come from ROH, I'd like to start watching it a bit more.

Good promo by Kingston.

EDIT: why's there no JoshiMania this year?

That's the beauty of Chikara. Embrace it.

JoshiMania was really only a one time thing. They even dubbed it "once in a lifetime" or something of that sort. I'd love to have it back.

Yeah, I wish it becomes an annual thing, like King of Trios. I've become a huge Joshi fan.

We only will get our fill from Anniversario weekend & KOT this year. So at least we got some awesome Joshi action opposed to none. This is making me want to buy Joshimania atm. Only you know, I don't have to cash to burn. </3

Plus Chikara without Sara Del Rey isn't the same. Joshimania was pretty much based around her. (and Aja Kong)

Re: CHIKARA - Season 11 Discussion Thread

im sure its been brought up in this thread before, but am i the only one that wishes Chikara had its own cable show. I really love how the company is storyline based, which is sorely lacking everywhere else. Plus they put on incredible matches and their roster is almost all in house. I know they are doing well now, but its so hard to keep up with it when you are broke and can't afford the dvd's and only find links every so often

Re: CHIKARA - Season 11 Discussion Thread

I'm sure if they had a financial backer they would attempt to be on TV/gain an audience that way. Unfortunately they don't. Plight of the Independent promotion. Stick with downloading then if you can't purchase shows. I know it doesn't help out the promotion when you think about it, although you're keeping up either way.
